Summary: This printer has always been a pain in the neck to use, since you needed to have sony memory sticks to make it work. Since I graduated several years ago to flash memory, I have to download the pictures to disc, then transfer them to the stick.
Summary: Purchased the DPP-SV55 in August 2001 along with the Sony DSC-S75 digital camera. This is a dye-sublimation (not inkjet) photo printer that delivers excellent prints in one of two sizes: postcard-sized, borderless pictures using 4"x6" photo paper (SVM-25LS) or smaller 3.5"x4" pictures using SVM-30SS...
Summary: I used this printer for quite some time with my Pismo running OS 9.2. When I purchased a Powerbook G4 running OS X, this printer was obsolete, i.e. no drivers available. Sony was absolutely not interested in making a driver for this printer and could not care less about the customer STUCK with this...
Summary: This printer produces impressive output, although the colors have a little too much magenta. The resolution is specified as 403 dpi but to get a 1:1 pixel mapping from (say) photoshop you need to set the image resolution to 403.66 dpi.
Summary: The print quality on this little printer is fantastic....you would not be able to distinguish it from proffessional digital photo lab grade I'm sure. It can be used by itself and a Memory Stick (or other media card via a 'PC card'), plugged into a tv monitor or via a computer.
Summary: Great Unit, makes beautiful pix. Each time you print 25-30 pix on 3x5 or 4x6 you put in a new ribbon cartridge which comes with the paper. Couldn't be happier, paid a very reasonable price from VDO Specialities. Great outfit to do business with!
Summary: Works great for awhile. A few months down the road, the printer will jam. It will eventuallt cease to work. I exchanged this printer three times, and the same things happened each time. Get a nice HP photo printer and never worry again!
Summary: I installed the driver software on my Windows 2000 laptop and was immediately getting great prints -- one of the easiest Windows installations I've had. (Note that I'm just using this product to print from PCs, not directly from memory stick/card.
Summary: Impressive. VERY close to photo-lab quality, you'd need a magnifying glass to tell the difference at 4x6. Even then I don't know if you could tell the difference. I'm using a 3.2 Megapixel Sony P7 and the results are phenomenal. Hard to believe given the relatively low price of the unit.
