Summary: I own several of this units that are used in a small business to take pictures for tourists with exotic birds. This is a very versatile and feature loaded printer. It is also very compact; just a great product.
Summary: Dye-sub printers may not have the most impressive resolution numbers, but ink jet printers have to use a large number of dots in a diffusion pattern to create a single point in the correct hue and gamma. This printer produces photo lab quality prints quickly and then slaps on a protective film which protects it from smudging. The form factor is very compact allowing it to be carried on a vacation or to the ball park, and it doesn't require a computer to print.
Summary: This little printer is extremely easy to use and almost no setup except loading the driver into your computer. It is faster then the last generation model, about 70 seconds per print. Being dye-sub type printer, it does go past the print head 4 times with the last time to apply a waterproof coat for a glossy finish. This self-contained mini-printer is loaded with features, many of which I have not even explored.
Summary: I am a hobbyist photographer and I used this printer for my daughter's school dance. For 3 hours, I shot posed photos and printed as I went. At the end of the dance, the guests picked up their photos. The printer was a little slower than I had hoped for the event and I wish it could hold more paper/ink at a time. However, for the price, I was pleased. I love it that the ink comes packaged with the paper so you know exactly how much ink you will need.
Summary: I bought this printer to make sublimation prints to apply on cups. I'm very pleased with the excelent software that is included. Print time is not bad considering the cup last a life time. Basic prints via pc were high rez, and will also last a life time. This printer was very easy to set up. Desk top level points the screen at the correct angle.
Summary: Wow. Incredible little printer. I was a little concerned about the DPI but the photos it produces look like film quality and there are absolutely no discernable pixels. Color is fantastic. Like everyone else mentions, beware of what paper you buy. Sony Photo Printer Paper 120 sheets (SVM-F120P/2) works. Note no paper or ink comes with the printer so you have to buy printer paper.
Summary: I have had this printer for a few days, and I am very satisfied. First, it is so simple to set up and easy to use. Second, the quality of the photos is very good. Third, the price was right, and finally, it is very cool to watch the photos print. I have a 9 year old niece who really liked watching it in action. Overall, I think that this is a good printer at a good price. Exactly what I was looking for!
