4-0 out of 5 stars Great for what it is supposed to do
First let me say, I have a real 13" printer by Epson and do all of the color matching and correction when using it.

Problem is that the workflow on the larger printer really doesn't meet the workflow needs of the wife.

My wife has been using the picturemate for a year now and we have gone through probably 600 prints.It has been well worth it.The photos are exceptional.

My ONLY complaint is the cropping it automatically does to fill the entire 4x6 when doing borderless.There really is no fit option on this printer to get it to print the entire original image for images that don't match the aspect ration of 4x6.But, it only bothers me and doesn't bother my wife.

Looking at the user manual for the new version of the picturemate with the picture viewer, it looks like they have solved this problem on the new version.Because of this I would recommend getting the version with the picture viewer display.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good prints for 48 hours then Black fades
Ok I bought this for the supposedly long life of the ink. Then my dream were shattered by all the disclaimers. I have to live in a glass bubble to get those results.
Then I noticed that the black when first printed looks absulotely great compared to my Canon 5000 but after 48 hours the black faded? I'm using Epson ink? Whats up Epson you optimize your ink for store sales?
Now I know why there are so many lawsuits to you over yoru claims.
Very Disatisfied!

4-0 out of 5 stars A Little Dynamo
I now have no excuse not to take pictures.The Epson Picture Mate is easy to use and the finished product is as good as or better than any photo lab.The one complaint that I hear and read about is the lack of a monitor.Since I review most of my pictures in the camera's monitor (Nikon coolpix 995) or enhance them with my computer, I hardly miss the monitor at all. If it prints too slowly for anyone, I suggest that you press the print button and go about your business.When you return, you wil have some of the finest quality (use the epson paper) longest lasting prints that you can obtain anywhere.

4-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Prints, Beautiful price
I love this handy little printer! I bought it a couple of weeks ago after shopping in quite a few stores looking at various photo printing machines, this one had the right price, and the right quality of print.

The prints come out beautifully, very crisp. It has taken me a little time to learn my way around the software that came with the machine but it seems to be doing the job. The main reason I didn't give it 5 stars is it seems to print a slight bit crooked if the paper isn't in there perfectly every time. Yet it isn't enough to ruin a print either.... and the software does take a little time to learn and I wish there would of been a booklet with some quick info in it on how to use the software to its max. I adore quick cheat sheets.

5-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT PHOTOS--NO CROPPING PROBLEMS
I just purchased this PictureMate printer for my wife's birthday and what an excellent gift it is!!Photos come out lab quality perfect..brilliant colors!Everything you could want in a personal printer. As for the problem many people have had with the printer cropping the picture when printing from a computer....if you have a scanner hooked up to your computer...bring your pictures up on the scanner program, select printpreview, then normal tile, then fit your picture to the entire tile square and print.....NO CROPPING....I get a beautiful complete UNCROPPED photo every time. If starting with a larger shot, simply resize the photo first OR center the oversized photo on the tile and whatever is inside the tile lines will print on the entire 4x6 photo. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars get this printer!
My PIXMA ip6000d arrived yesterday, and I have only printed three photos so far--two from a digital camera and one from a scanned print.But I am ecstatic and amazed at the quality I see.These photos are better prints than I have received from photo labs recently!The clarity of one image of my pet cockatiel on my shoulder is so detailed, that the texture of my t-shirt fabric is visible!Absolutely astounding!

Two of the photos I've printed were both taken with a Canon digital camera, but the third was from a B&W print scanned to my computer, and I can't tell the difference from the scanned print-out to the original photograph.In this case, I feel that regardless of your brand of digital camera, quality will still be outstanding.

My plans are to use this printer specifically for photo printing, so right now, I can't speak for document quality, but if you're looking for a photo-only printer, go no further.I can't recommend this printer highly enough.

5-0 out of 5 stars Forget Epsons!!
I've had many models of the Epsons in the past. Luckily, I purchased the additional warranty from the store I purchased them from. Within a few months, I was always bringing my Epson back to the store for malfunctions such as ink splattering, cranking noises, ink clogs, and the paper feed was just rediculous! Everytime, the store told me that I was able to just get a new printer from the shelf in exchange, and I always picked an Epson because of all the hype about how wonderful they are with photo printing, and how they're "supposedly" the best photo printers on the market. So with the last one, I decided to go with something other than Epson and came across this Canon. I couldn't be happier!!! Pictures turn out fantastic, its fast, color quality is faboulous, not noisey, and the ink doesn't clog or splatter. I love it so much that I purchased one for my mother so she can start printing.Overall, a fantastic printer!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great printer!
I purchased this printer to use with my Kodak Easy Share camera back in November.I was surprised at the quality of the photos.I would recommend using Canon photo paper as the pictures looked the best on that.HP paper works well too.I also agree with the reviewer who said not to use Kodak photo paper with this printer.The pictures are very dull.I have printed more than 100 4 x 6 prints on this.Mostly, I print by inserting the memory card, but I've printed photos from the computer and directly from the camera.I couldn't see any difference in the quality. I printed an 8 x 10 print right from the memory card and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of that as well.I also like the fact that it has 6 ink tanks.I've just had to replace the two original photo inks, the regular inks are still going strong.Replacing one or two at a time is much easier on the pocket book!It is also nice to be able to print photos without having to power up the computer.Over all I'm very pleased with this printer and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys photography as a hobby.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow
I just got this printer, and so far I am very impressed.I have only printed from my camera's memory card (inserted into the printer) so far, and I am so impressed with the quality of the photos. They are beautiful and look just as good as lab prints. It is incredibly easy to edit or print different photo sizes -- all using only the printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Piece of Kit
I've owned this wonderful piece of kit for a few months now, and it still impresses me every time I use it.

It's always refreshing when something does the job first time, every time, without any fuss, bother or headache. It installed just fine; all instructions were clear, concise and easy to follow - even my mother could do it.

Operationally, it's nigh-on silent, which is a relief (the last printer I owned, even though inkjet, sounded more like a daisy wheel), and having the six cartridges saves a lot of waste. It does seem to get through them at a rate of knots though, which is the only fault I have with it - its draft mode just isn't draft enough (I tend to print a lot of posters, and need to get them just-so).

The quality of the prints is impressive, and for those that are concerned about printed photos versus real ones, don't be: printed photos don't bleed when wet, and the quality difference is almost impossible to distinguish (obviously, this is somewhat reliant on the quality of your camera). One tip though, don't use Kodak paper with this printer, the quality is terrible in comparison with other, cheaper, varieties.

The memory card reader is great too, and not only can you print directly from it (borderless too), but it appears as a drive in My Computer as well (which is handy for me, meaning I don't have to dig out the wires for the camera to be able to get at the photos).

Finally, the ability to print directly onto a CD sounds like a fad, but it's not. Being able to send professional-looking CDs/DVDs to friends, without having the effect ruined by handwritten labels is great. (I'm not aware of any limitation for priting in the US, this model was bought in the UK)

Overall, I can't recommend this enough. For what it does, it should be twice the price. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great little printer, but....
I like that it's compact and has good features built in, especially the battery, but the image quality don't quite live up to it being a true photo printer.To those who have this printer, tilt the picture a bit under the light, and you'll see the colors are not smooth, making it appear the subjects or objects are pasted on the paper, including obvious showing of dithering.At least it is true when printed on HP paper; however, looks more realistic and looks like a true photo when printed on my leftover Canon glossy paper.Ink smears are also another problem area for this printer.I have HP 2710 and and has same problems with photo print outs on that printer.HP375B was strictly for the photos and is going back and will be exchanged with just released Epson Picturemate Deluxe, which appears to not have these shortcomings.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good value & performance
Easy to setup and use. Good quality pictures (hard to tell from regular prints). It takes about 1 minute per print. I haven't made enough pictures to know how long the cartridge will last. For taking digital photos and making 4x6" prints, its a great product.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Results
Works as advertised.I had it out of the box and printing beautiful pictures in 10 minutes.This was the perfect gift for my non-technical wife who just wanted to push a button and get a picture.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible service
My wife and I wasted hours and hours trying to get HP service. HP has outsourced customer service to several developing countries, and each time we called, the representatives were unable to locate the record of our previous call.We were told time and again that we would be contacted by a "case manager" but that never happened. After weeks of trying, it became obvious that we need to discard the product (still under warrantee) and buy a new (non-HP) product ourselves.

5-0 out of 5 stars Totally Awesome!!
I decided I wanted a photo printer just for printing photos. Consumer Reports gave this printer the highest marks for photo quality so it caught my interest. When I looked closer I saw this model has the large-size photo preview screen and it accepts memory cards from all digital cameras. Now my friends and family can come to my house and print photos during parties and other events. It is so great to get the photos instantly from my camera and into my hands. This little printer sits on my kitchen counter at all times. The photo quality is amazing and it is so easy to use. What a winner! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars So Great!!!
I'm a digital artist and so I need to print high quality renders of my work and this printer is awesome for that.When my last hp printer started to die out after lasting 4 years and producing hundreds of prints I didn't hesitate to buy another hp and acutrally I still have the old one for back-up and printing stuff from the web.After having the hp photosmart 8450 for a couple of weeks now all I can say is good things about it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Printer
This printer has far exceeded my expectations.It is easy to use and makes wonderful photos.the only thing I don't like is it goes thru the ink very fast and the ink is expensive.

5-0 out of 5 stars My best printer EVER
This is my 6th or 7th home printer. I have had every brand made for home use. Although I have never bought a top of the line model, this printer was priced in the same price range as all my others.

All I can say about the quality of this printer is WOW. I would have NEVER done digital scrapbooking or desktop publishing with my other printers, as the color was never this good, and they all always had stripes or someother flaw in the printing.Every printer I buy, thinking I can print photos still leaves me buying prints online or from one of the stores.

I love this printer.The colors are exact and FLAWLESS. I havent even used a quarter of the features this printer has, and my mind is blown at the quality for the price!!!

The only negative, and I am stretching here, is the size of it.. Its kinda big, but other than that, I highly recommend it for those who really want to print their own pictures at home. I too have printed 20+ 8x10's and (I dont even know how many 4X6's) andmy print levels are still above half!!

I will never buy another brand other than HP!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Absoultely Amazing
I have owned MANY top end printers including the $700 EPson 2200, and Canon I9100, Epson R800, etc.

This HP is amazing. Best printer I have ever owned and prints that are better than ANY I have ever seen from ANY printer or lab. MAKE sure you only use HP paper as teh ink is forulated for use with their paper only. For eyeball popping quality, buy some HP premium plus papers and prepare to be amazed. The blacks are deep, the colors accurate and vivid. At this price, it KILLS my Epson R800 which was almost 2X the $$. The Epson is now clogged and useless, and teh HP will never get clogged due to the print heads being built in each cartridge!

Buy it and you will like it. HP has come a long way over the pasy couple of years, and with their new printers (8450 and 8750) they should be #1. Trust me, Ive owned all three top brands top of the line machines and this is my all time fave. Ill also buy the 8750 for 13X19 when it is released. Its that good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful outcome of every photo!

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely great portable printer!
I've returned the HP375b printer for this one, and what an amazing printer.No more going to a photo lab or uploading to online photo labs, this 6 color ink printer produces stunning pictures everytime.I got a battery with this printer, and it is amazing how convenient it is to just take the printer and the camera whereever I want to be, then just sit and print.As they've indicated, the pictures are smudge and waterproof, making it easier to handle right after printing them.The 6 color ink cartridge is a single unit, and it is a cinch to change them when needed.

The printer has a USB port in the back that can be used to connect to a PC or other USB devices for backup or from which to read the pictures to print.I've never had the chance to backup the pictures from memory cards to a CD-writer, as my memory cards are at least 1GB each and have found the CD writers to be past its time.However, the printer did not have any problem reading from other USB flash cards or from my 60Gig portable hard drive.A support to write to a DVD writer would be a plus with possibly from next firmware release of this printer.

Only inconvenient thing the others may find is that the Pict Bridge connection is located on the back of the printer, rather than the front, where it is more convenient to handle the wires.I, however, found that it is more convenient to just take the memory card out of the camera and plug it into the printer cardreader.

I don't like wires, and all my devices, including my laptops, are portable, so this printer is a great addition to my overall system.This is a must have item if you love taking pictures, and a battery is a must have accessory.

5-0 out of 5 stars A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
This product is incredible.I know photography, and I'm fussy about quality- these pictures honestly look like they were professionally developed.Plus, with the new color screen on the delux model, it is SO easy to look through your pictures and decide which to print.It's also incredibly easy to zoom in and crop the pictures before you print them! If you have a digital camera, you NEED this printer so that your pictures dont just sit in a folder on your computer, yet you dont have to go out to print them. A must buy! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars My opinion....
I did NOT like the quality of photos that were printed on this machine.I returned this item and bought an HP 7760 photosmart (which was cheaper).I printed the exact same picture on the HP that I had printed on the Epson R320.There was a HUGH difference!!The Epson picture was grainy with a reddish tint to the photo.The HP photo was perfect.I would suggest foregoing the "novelty" of printing a label on a disk in exchange for better quality photos....which is what a printer is for.

1-0 out of 5 stars prints OK - but I took it back
I bought the EPSON R320 30 days ago for just under $200, it is now is selling for $20 less in the same store.I took it back because it is a stupid printer, the default settings baffle me, if you swap between 8x11.5 paper and 4x6 photos you never know how your printout is going look. The printer seemed to go into lala land while using it, had to shut it off and re-power on to get it going again (then I had to reset the settings for the type of print I was doing). The software supplied with the printer "FILM FACTORY" is worse then useless; it seems it was designed to use ink uselessly.I got better prints just using MSWORD or the Camedia program that came with my camera.The store (FRYS) took it back and I bought a bubble jet at same price, which so far is working fine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Second Time around!
I purchased the R300 as a floor model at a discount. Got some great full sized borderless prints of my scanned paintings using Photoshop 6 on my MAC G4, system 9. When I connected the R300 to my MAC G5 I had to use the older USB 1 cable rather than the shorter USB 2 which I hadjust purchased for use with this printer, because the USB 2 was too short to reach G5 cpu. I got those terrible lines, must have cleaned the print heads 20 times, downloaded the newest drivers, no change. I turned the R300 in and got a new R320 and a USB 2 cable. No more streaks! If you buy this printer be sure to get theUSB 2 (backwards compatible) cable.
I was also able to import my Illustrator (8) created logo and paste (special) it into the CD label software and print onto the CD. Really a great printer for an artist who has to run a business to promot my art!

5-0 out of 5 stars Yes, I Love It. . . It's Amazing!
I've created an audio book and instead of paying someone else to imprint the CDs, I wanted to be able to do them myself, at my convenience, and/or upon the sale of a CD.

When I first set up the printer, the disc printed fine but I had a hard time with the case wrapper which was full color. The colors were streaking and seemed over-saturated with too much magenta. But, alas, it WASN'T THE PRINTER's fault. I did clean the heads, however, and then I changed my print settings from CMYK to RGB. This great little desktop printer then polished the job off accurately.

I'm impressed that for such a small amount of money I can have the ability to create my own labeling right here beside me and they look so professional!!And the CD case wrappers? Wow!

I have two other printers, both HP - a B&W laser and an oversized tabloid-sized printer. The last little desktop printer was a Canon and it's been in the closet (I'm sure all dried up and obsolete) for many years. The electronic features on the Stylus R320 amazed me. With an LCD screen onboard, it's so easy to program. And, the separate ink cartridges are a plus. I just spent $58 for a color combination cartridge for the oversized printer, but now when this one runs low on one particular color, I can replace it for only $13 at the computer store.

Hats off to Epson for this model. I hope to enjoy it through many many customers. Yipppeeee.

1-0 out of 5 stars Does not work out of the box
I am an IT professional (BSIT) and I bought this product because it is rated #1 by Consumer Reports and I own several HP printers that I really enjoy. However, I had the same experience as several other reviewers of this product. This printer simply does not work out of the box. After trying for 1 day I gave up and called HP customer service and they diagnosed the problem as a defective chip in the printer. They wanted to replace the printer with a refurbished one; I refused and threatened to return it back to Amazon. I was placed on hold and then told that I would receive a firmware upgrade via FedEx overnight. If this upgrade does not work I will be forced to return the printer to Amazon.

Deeply disappointed,

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of Garbage
I had the same experience as another reviewer of the product. this printer does not work out of the box. After trying for 2 days I gave up and called HP customer service and they diagnosed the problem as a defective chip in the printer. They wanted to replace the printer with a refurbised one; I refused and returned it back to Amazon.

1-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Work Out Of The Box
I bought an HP Photosmart 375B from a major reseller.I spent hours trying to get my HP computer to recognize the 375B including uninstalling my all-in-one HP printer.I called HP Customer Service and they told me the firmware within the printer is defective.They promised to send a relpacement printer within 10 days.At 10 days, I got a call stating the 375's are backordered.At 19 days, I got my printer.Clearly labelled on the box is "REFURBISHED / REPAIRED".I called HP Customer Service and told them how if I wanted a refurb I would have bought one and can I please have a new printer since that is what I paid for and I never was able to use the defective one anyway.They said no, that is our policy.I can't return the printer to where I bought it either because the 30 day return period expired because of the HP backorder delay.I believe HP knowingly released to the market defective product to meet their sales goals and am disgusted that I am forced to settle for used when I paid for new.

5-0 out of 5 stars More fun with digital photography!
This great little printer brings the magic of Polaroid pictures to the world of digital photography. I got it shortly before Christmas and then when we had the great day with the kids and grandchildren we found that we could easily print pictures from each of three different cameras and share them on the spot. Needless to say, the grandchildren were the most 'shot'. Everyone went home to their faraway places with current pictures in hand - not in the camera! My daughter-in-law, who is heavy into scrapbooking, decided she had to have one.

I bought this printer on the basis of a comparison study in The Wall Street Journal and have been more than satisfied. The editing is easy and thorough, the color rendition is excellent and the printing easy to set up for a series of pictures and more than acceptably fast. One word of caution - the color rendition is honest and will show you if your camera is lacking - my old camera was. With a new Nikon D70, the color comes out accurate and truly vivid. I cannot wait to take this little machine to our next family gathering or to the next wedding we are invited to attend. Imagine, being able to send the couple away on their honeymoon with a nice set of wedding pictures in hand!

Buy this printer and you will never regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Portable Photo Print Shop Made EASY!
Imagine printing photos where ever you are with this Photo Printer. It comes with a power cord to use it in a powered setup and that allows you to charge the re-chargeable battery.Unplugged and with the battery installed, prepare to get over 70 photos from a single charge... about the same number of photos from the tri-color ink cartridge that comes in the box. It's compact design makes it easy to carry along with you to get the instant results from taking photos.

After looking at some of the other brands of 4 x 6 printers, I decided that this was the most flexible, easy-to-use and versatile printer among Epson's Picturemate (too bulky, very difficult to decipher screen instructions, no way to see your photos before printing, and leaky ink cartridge), Lexmark's 4 x 6 printer --- (also bulky, confusing menus on the screen and misleading "count-down" clock when it begins to print a photo)and Canon's you-need-a-television-to-see-your-photos dye-sub printer or "battery-wasting" pict-bridge connection

Not only can you see the photo you're going to print on the HP PhotoSmart 375, you can edit (without a computer)it in ways that are impossible on the others mentioned above. Zoom all over the photo image from 1.0x to5.0x ... the printer actually warns you if the image may not have enough file behind it to produce a quality photo. It allows you to print either with borders at 4 x 6 or borderless -- a single 4 x 6 or two 4 x 3 photos or four 2 x 3 photos on a single sheet of photo paper...The results are great and allow you to print your own postcards to send to the folks back home when you take this little gem on your next vacation.

I brought this HP PhotoSmart printer along with me to a friend's house for Thanksgiving dinner. The festivities were captured on my digital camera and then printed on the spot.Everyone left with fond memories of Thanksgiving 2004... no waiting for developing or sending files via email.


Need a passport photo?The PhotoSmart 375 also will print various sizes of two on a page photos.

Want your color photos in black & white or sepia? just toggle a setting and hit the print key.

It also has 6 pre-installed "borders"/ frames that you can select from 16 colors.

Buy TWO... one for you and give one to your best friend!And make sure you get the one with the rechargeable battery, 'cause you'll be taking this wherever you bring your camera. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars AMAZING
I got this printer in December but then in January IT STOPPED WORKING! I was bummed because I was so happy with it. I tried to get it to work everyday for about a week or two then I gave up. Now in April I decided to get another one, but before I did I wanted to see if it would work one last time and guess what?! It came to life!!!! It healed itself!!! I have no idea how?! I am so happy with it!!!!!!! It's the best thing ever!!!! NO NEED FOR THE COMPUTER!!!! But if you want to edit the pictures so they come out looking great then it comes with a stellar program!!! I JUST LOVE IT!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Little Printer
Printer has proven to be EXCELLENT as far as I have used it.Won it in a contest, so I'm not complaining. ;)

I have printed out some pictures and find the quality to be EXCELLENT.The speed of printing is also fast and the printer prints BORDERLESS photos (which is a handy feature).

As with any product there are a few cons.
1) Printer is a PHOTO printer.That means you won't be printing out an 8X10s; you can only print 4X6 photos (but I'm expecting you know this already..)

2)Cable to hook to PC is *not* included.If you want to transfer pictures from your computer, don't expect to get a cable with your printer.The cable is sold separately.However, a flash/USB drive will work perfectly.. Just plug the USB drive into your computer, stick the pictures on it, then plug the USB drive into your printer.

---------
The printer can recognize MANY different formats, SD cards, USB input devices (photo iPod, flash drive, etc..)Which is very convenient.It can also view the pictures straight from your camera (make sure it's compatible, most are..)

If you're looking to just print photos and want a light-weight and portable printer, this is the item for you!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product
I got an hp325 for Christmas. I took pictures of the family opening presents with my Canon A70 and printed them out before breakfast. Quality is great. Took camera and printer to a meeting, took pictures and printed them. Everybody was amazed at the quality and very idea that I could print pictures right at the table. Haven't tried installing in computer. Why bother? I can download from card to computer with card reader. Love the portability. Getting our son one for his birthday.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome photo lab for $149
I highly recommend this printer. I did plenty of research and came to the conclusion that this printer offers the best features for the price. The other HP model (HP 375) offers a photo preview screen but costs more. I saw a retail store rep print the same image on HP and Epson printers and the HP printers usually were faster with equal or better photo quality.My family has used this printer for a month now and it is so much fun. Great job HP!

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing at first but HP resolved the issue
I was frustrated when I first bought the printer.It creates great pictures from my memory card but it would not install on my computer.After reading someone's previous review I thought I should just return it.I contacted HP and one of the customer service reps told me that a certain batch of those printers have a defect that will not allow it to be installed on your computer.I had received advice from other HP reps and it did not work. The only solution was to exchange the printer through Hewlett Packard not the store I bought it from. HP sent me another printer and my computer was able to recognize that printer.Now I can print from my computer and my memory card. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow, a great photo printer
I thought my HP 6122 office printer did a good job on photos UNTIL I bought the 7960!Try the 8 1/2 by 11 borderless - they are spectacular.The color is true and detail is excellent.Use HP paper and have a great time.I have framed some shots and they look most professional!

1-0 out of 5 stars terrible service
My wife and I wasted hours and hours trying to get HP service. HP has outsourced customer service to several developing countries, and each time we called, the representatives were unable to locate the record of our previous call. We were told time and again that we would be contacted by a "case manager" but that never happened. After weeks of trying, it became obvious that we need to discard the product (still under warrantee) and buy a new (non-HP) product ourselves.

1-0 out of 5 stars The decline of HP
Having owned several HP printers over many years, I have noticed a steady and unforgivable decline in the quality of this company's printers with each successive model.The final straw for me is the 7960, by far the worst HP printer I have owned.While producing acceptable prints under most conditions, this printer's liabilities far outweigh its benefits.The workmanship of the unit itself is the flimsiest and most disappointing I have encountered.And the printer's lack of consistent compatibility with the two separate computers I have used it with is both annoying and inexcusable for a supposedly renowned printer company.Bad drivers have caused numerous problems and the driver updates usually make the situation only marginally better.Plus the printer's general overuse of ink and poor paper and envelope handling make the overall experience of owning one distinctly unappealing.This is my last HP printer - I'll be switching to Epson.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Printer
I really love this printer.I have had it for almost a year now.It does a beautiful job on color 8x10's and prints fantastic black and white photos.Switching to the 56 cartridge makes it an excellent text printer as well.(It ships with all 4 cartridges). The 4x6 prints look much better than the ones from a photo shop or from the Kodak kiosk at Best Buy.

Both the Epson and Canon 8 color printers will not print true black and white photos. They have a pink, salmon or pale blue cast.This is also true of their 6 color printers.This printer is also substantially less expensive than Epson and Canon 8-color printers ($399 and $349 respectively).So whether you need or want the color LCD or card reader is moot.This printer is between a $120 and $170 less than its Epson and Canon competitors.Those printers also will not print regular text in sharp, clear, 1200x1200 dpi pigment based resolution.The text prints from their photo printers tend to have a dark grey tone, rather than crisp black because they use dye based, rather than pigment based black ink for text printing.Switching cartridges with the HP 7960 allows you to have the best ink type for your print job.

Finally, if you are looking at a Canon, be careful with the ink tanks.I have a friend who wasn't paying close attention and mixed up the color tanks and ended up sending the wrong color through the print head.She had to take out the print head and wash it for quite awhile in tap water.Then she had to prime (charge) all of the tanks several times to get the water out of the system.What a hassle.There are no keys or notches to prevent you from making this mistake on a Canon.The Epson tanks are keyed so this mistake can't be made and it doesn't matter with an HP. You can't ruin the print heads with HP because they are built into the ink tank.

No printer on the market is as versatile and easy to use.No printer on the market can do so many different things well.When I looked at the reviews in Consumers Reports there was not a big difference in print costs and there didn't seem to be a big savings because of individual ink tanks.Finally, the pictures will last longer.Canon only claims 25 years for framed pictures, while HP claims more than 70 years.Consumers Reports also says that Epson and HP are more fade resistant than Canon.

Color shading and tones is a personal thing.I suggest you take a picture you like with skin tones and shades down to a computer store and print out a 4x6 on each printer and see which one you like the best.After all what you like is the most important thing.All of the sample prints from all of the manufacturers are obviously skewed to present their features and benefits in the best light possible.

5-0 out of 5 stars cannot find a flaw yet
I received this printer last year as a holiday gift and I have not found a flaw yet......it prints very crisp photos that rival any camera store product, it is amazingly easy to use, has lots of editing capabilites, easy to navigate functions, accepts all kinds of digital cards (which is GREAT since you don't have to buy a different printer if you change digital cameras) and prints up to 10 x 12 photos.This printer is well worth the price; in fact, I'd be willing to pay more so it's a bargain.This printer gets heavy usuage (it goes thru at least one ink cartridge change per 75 photos) and I have two toddlers who have - not on my watch - "played" with it and it still works like a dream.Does it get any better than this?!?I think not. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Value
Prints excellent pictures for the value.I use it exclusively for pictures, not text, so I don't switch ink, although it is easy to do.In my camparison this is less costly then 4x6 only printers, and I print other photo sizes frequently.Check consumer magazine ratings and you will find this printer rates high on the list.You'll find the best price is here also.Be careful; default print quality is set to 'best' every session which uses ink fast...

2-0 out of 5 stars Great pictures, when it will accept the cartridges
The picture print quality is fantastic on this printer. HOWEVER, I am on the fifth time that I use the photo ink cartridge a few times and then the printer says it has failed. At roughly $30 a piece, this gets VERY costly! The photo store only charges 29 cents a print. I am learning that this is a much better deal! Very disappointing...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great all-purpose printer!
This is an outstanding printer.Aside from doing an excellent job with photos, it also functions extremely well as an all-purpose printer, running the gamut from high-quality photo printing to everyday correspondence and web page printing.

Right after I bought this, my 5-year old laser died, so I started using the 7760 as a temporary all-purpose printer.I was so impressed, I decided against buying another laser printer.The "fast draft mode" provides nice quality for everyday document and web page printing; very sharp for black & white, but just a bit lighter than normal mode, and is far better than draft mode on Epsons.There is also a "Fast Normal" mode that looks near perfect, yet provides some ink savings.Both modes print text and graphics far more quickly than earlier models, narrowing the gap against laser printers dramatically.Like all good-quality photo printers, it runs through ink quickly at the highest photo settings.But for everyday use in "Fast Draft" and "Fast Normal" modes, I'm satisfied with the ink economy.

I have had this printer for 10 months, use nearly everyday, and have never experienced any of the problems noted by other reviewers.I use only with a Dell desktop PC and IBM Thinkpad, so cannot speak to its viability as a standalone photo printer.I love having only one printer, as I never thought that a single printer could run the gamut from high quality photos to economical everyday use---let alone at this price.I've recommended this printer to others time and again, and I'd buy it again in a minute.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent printer and I bought it refurbished for $93!
I always buy refurbished simply because you know the refurbished ones will work!

I have no qualms about this printer, ok maybe a tiny one.

I would rather print a 4x6 picture on a 4x6 paper, I have no idea where to put it. There is a spot that looks like where the 4x6 paper would go into but when I put it in nothing happens, so I resort to putting the 8x10 paper in the tray (where it's supposed to go) and I waste my paper. I try sticking the 4x6 into the tray where the 8x10 goes, but I really have to stick my fingers all the way down so it can reach the mouth, and it still won't go.

I love this printer it's great,looks cool, and does a good job.
I just have to figure out this 4x6 slot that looks like a 4x6 paper would go.

1-0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't have purchased if I would have had all the facts
I purchased this printer for my mother.She doesn't own a computer and would always have either myself or a sibling print her pictures for her.So I thought this was a great idea since it has 2 USB ports and takes 4 different memory cards.Well what you are not told is that the USB ports are only for HP products and they do not sell an adaptor or anything else so that this product can be used with another type of camera.We have a Sony camera where the pictures are burnt on to a cd, so that is why we were looking for a printer that you can use a USB cable for. I emailed HP support and they told me to hook it up to a computer and then print or they suggested several HP camera's we could purchase to use the USB ports.I GIVE THIS LESS THAN A STAR.

The product did print one nice picture off of a memory card but really isn't serving it's purpose for my mother. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great right out of the box!
I've been hemming and hawing over which photo printer to by since I bought my digital camera. I didn't have enough sense to think it through and by the scanner, printer, and camera all at the same time. I thought I would just use the Kodak kiosk like i've been doing. That lasted about a week.
The three main contenders were the HP photosmart 8450 because it s was highly rated and had 8 ink cartridges, and memory card slots
The HP photosmart 8750 because it printed up to 13"x19" and it had the memory card slots,
The canon i9900 because it was supposed to be the absolute best for the serious amateur had 8 ink tanks and printed large, downside though, no memory card reader.
So why didn't I buy any of these and instead got the HP photosmart 8150. It's quite simple actually for two ink tanks less i.e. six instead of eight, it cost 100.00 dollars less where I bought it or 60.00 dollars less on Amazon.I got it home, pulled it out and installed the software. For some reason you have to install the software first then connect the printer. I was up and running in 10-20 minutes, (there's alot of software it comes with photo editing software and scrapbook assistant)plugged in my SD card and printed my first photo five minutes later (I was playing with the menu, it's NOT slow). You can edit right on the printer screen theres some fun effects and borders that you can do. Color was amazing worked right the first time. And the really cool thing is that it has two trays built in. One is for letter sized paper and the other is for 4"x6" photo paper you just slide a switch to engage the photo paper.
Some things to consider:
-Blasted thing doesn't come with the 2.0 USB cord I had to steal the cord off of my new CanoScan.
-It takes a LOT of room on your hard drive 600MB yes over half a gig.
-It's big it's about twice the size of my normal printer
-If you're going to be doing a lot of black and white printing, the gray ink cartridge HP 100 is NOT included
-It does come with photo paper
-It does have the capability to scan transparencies, Film, and Film slides.
-It does have memory card capability.
-One other thing, this may be a duh thing to those in the know, but for a newbie, when you are putting the photo paper in the printer it goes glossy side DOWN with the tear tab towards you. I just slapped it in there and ended up printing on the wrong side, which actually made for a neat effect but you do want to print on the correct side.
I highly recommend it. Glad I didn't buy the Canon i9900; right now that would be gilding the lily.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT Printer
I had to get a printer quick after mine just konked out. I did some research and this looked like the best deal for it's features. I love it. It prints terrific photos, and the regular every day black print is awesome and fast.

2-0 out of 5 stars too many plastic parts that seem light and flimsy
I purchased this printer at the end of January and by the middle of February after only printing about 20 borderless 4X6 pictures direct from memory card the printer failed. It prints about 3/4 of the picture and then something happens with the rollers inside that turns the picture paper to an angle and wrinkles the paper and the print comes out unfinished. I am very disappointed in this printer. I am returning it to store to try another one more time. If this one doesn't work properly then I am going to try another brand. For the record the software and features worked very nicely. It is just mechanics inside that seem cheap and flimsy.

2-0 out of 5 stars Locks up Computer!
Yes the prints are great and you don't have to use a computer,but when we first installed it the computer would lock at the post. Seems if your not using the newest bios Windows XP sees the printer as a hard drive and tries to boot from it which of course it can't.
HPs work around is to unplug the printer everytime you boot the computer. Not a viable option. Updating the bios is not somethingfor the faint hearted. We hooked it up to our newer computer and everything went fine, but thats not where we wanted it. So it hard to reccomend this printer with the support so weak.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Printer, but a little hungry it seems
I recently got this printer as a gift, and I have had great luck printing more than 250 4"x6" prints, some on 8.5x11, and some on Kodak 4"x6.25" stock (leaves a little handle for your prints). The pitcures are very good, with only a little bronzing, which seems to make the prints jump at you. The images were from a 5 megapixel Canon, so they were pretty rich.

I printed from 200dpi images from PhotoShop, Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, and HP Image Zone (or whatever it is.) Windows is the best of the three for batch jobs. The HP software was klunky, as always. Let's face it, they are not software developers.

I also printed some retouched black and whites, and there was some graining with enlargements, but the overall effect was very good. There was some color artifacting (pink or blue tint) to the black and whites, but I just found out HP makes a grayscale photo cartridge for this printer, so I will get that and I am sure there will be no extra colors.

I printed to both glossy and matte, and the images were excellent. With heavy blue saturations the ink takes longer to dry, so watch out you don't smudge your skies or other blue backgrounds.

The printer does go through cartridges, though. I have replaced the photo cartridge (black, light cyan, light magenta) three times for about 300 prints, so 100 each (4x6) is probably the rule of thumb. It also uses a true cyan, yellow, magenta cartridge which doesn't seem to run out as fast. Color reproduction is excellent while the ink lasts. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding!No Problems - Get the Photos You Want
We bought this printer ayear ago, travelled half way around the world with it and back, have printed over 1000 pictures on it and absolutely love it!

1.Picture quality is excellent.You read a lot about "photo quality" prints on printers.In our experience, many of those printers are not at all photo quality and you end up having to pay for prints anyway.We could see no point in having a photo printer that didn't really print great photos.We wanted to buy a printer to avoid having to print professionally.And this printer did it.It is worth the price.

2.The printer uses a different technology than laser printer which is used by the photolabs that you may send your digital prints for processing.It uses dye-sublimation and produces equally good photos.

3. Because of the cost of the ink cartridges and paper (which must be purchased together), the cost per print can still be around .29 to .35 cents, which is the same as many internet labs and more than some of the cheaper deals.So, if you're looking for a cheaper alternative, this is not going to be it.But it is a lot easier.To save some money, look for deals on the paper/cartridge combinations (they have to be bought as a combo - it's not like you can use any paper and buy separate cartridges as you can with other types of computer printers.But this is true for most of the other dedicated photo printers anyway.)You can buy 60 print packs for 4X6 prints which will save you some money over the standard 30 print packs.

4.We chose the 730PS over the 600 series because we personally preferred the pictures.You can go to Hi Touch's website and request a sample from the printer you are considering.We requested a sample from one of the two we were considering in order to compare.For the longest time, we could absolutely not see any difference between the prints and certainly no difference from the prints and what we would get if we sent away to a print lab.Finally, we decided on the 730PS because the colors looked more vivid to us, which I preferred.

5.If you have any questions, email or call Hi Touch.They really know their stuff and were very helpful (even after we made the purchase).We got real answers from them, not stupid marketing hype.

6.For Mac users, we use the 730PS with our iMac.

7.We also liked the versatility of the 730PS - it can print 4X6, 5X7 and 6X8 and hopefully will do stickers soon though that isn't available yet.

8.You can do basic editing from the printer itself - including resizing (larger or smaller) and moving (recentering) the part you want to print.Though you can attach to a computer, you don't need to.The printer accepts all types of photo cards.We use Compact Flash cards but have put in even the Sony cards using an adapter that comes with the Sony cards.You can edit pictures (e.g. using PhotoShop) on your computer and connect the printer to your computer to print.

9.This has really expanded our use of photos and makes events more fun because you can immediately print out photos for people to enjoy.

10.We don't have any of the problems that we hear about from other photo printer owners.This company is very solid in terms of their technology.It's not a cheap printer but you won't be disappointed because you'll get a printer that does what you want it to do - produce truly great prints.We have absolutely no need to use photo labs any more unless we need a print that's bigger than 6x8.

11.As for portability, it's not as easily portable as some other dedicated photo printers but we did cart it half way around the world though we're not doing that again.It was tough to find a case for it - we ended up using a salesperson sample/catalog case on wheels w/handle but that fit in overhead compartments on the plane.

If you get the printer, enjoy.We've loved it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use. Prints beautiful photos
I found this photo printer easy to set up and use. The driver installed on my PC in a few minutes and I was up and running. My digital camera uses SD memory and this printer accepts the memory cards for printing photos. One time I selected the wrong photo and it was easy to cancel the print job by hitting the print cancel button on the printer. I have printed photos and even used the black text to print memos and Excel spreadsheets.I really can't believe how much this printer does for such a low price. Highly recommended.

If you print with HP's recommended paper you get brilliant photo prints. I tried a 4x6 photo and it came out looking great.

Only downside.....this printer does not have a LCD photo preview screen on the printer. If you want to preview your photos you can do so on your PC or camera before printing. Some printers like the HP PhotoSmart 8150 have a photo preview screen which would be nice to have. All things considered, the HP 7450 is a great buy.

1-0 out of 5 stars Another awful HP printer
I have went through a frustrating run of HP printers, and this model will be the final one I will ever buy. I used to enjoy the dependability of an HP printer, but lately every one I have purchased has malfunctioned in some way shortly if not right out of the box.

This printer offers a decent amount of function for the price, however, it repeatedly wasted at least two sheets of paper with noise every time I turned my computer on...a problem I have had with several HP printers.After this, it began to kick out paper at random and print starting in the middle of the page. If this printer actually operated as advertised, it would be a nice deal for the money. As it, I would recommend going with an Epson if at all possible. I will do so in the future.

4-0 out of 5 stars Bang for the Buck!
Ok, I got this printer for X'mas 2 years ago and it's still awesome. I bought this for 50 bux during a sale and in addition to a gift certificate. I am surprised how some people can give this item a bad review, I'm sure they got a lemon because I have nothing but praises for this printer. My ONLY complaint is that does have a big footprint and the inks are expensive. But otherwise, the quality is great (it also depends on the photo printer paper you use and settings). The 4x6 tray is a nice touch and the mutliple memory card inputs! I bought tons of 4x6 photo paper and its an easy load and the printouts are amazing. Brilliant colors using my Canon SD300 digital camera. It's been 2 years now and I love it.

1-0 out of 5 stars HP 7660 is a joke!BUYER BEWARE!
This printer prints wonderful photos IF you can keep it printing!I constantly had error messages and cartridge incompatibility issues.Oh, and then there is the "failed cartridge" message.HP replaced the cartridge once, but I still got the error messages!I can't make them understand.. it's the PRINTER, not the cartridges!Whatever reads the cartridges is defective and HP won't own up to it! I decided to refill the cartridges and now HP won't even talk to me.Who can afford to buy their ink? Their ink is over 60 dollars!Unless youhave a spare job just to keep buying cartridges for this printer forget it!Buying a HP printer just allows the company to keep their hands deep in your pockets!

3-0 out of 5 stars Great for 8X10's, terrible for 4x6
I have used this for over a year now.Can print out fabulous 8x10's.

It uses two cartridges for photo quality prints.And it is an ink hog.

Cost per 8x10 photos is about $2 a page.

Best paper is Ilford pearl type of paper.

For 4x6's forget it.It's very touchy with this paper holder (built in).After a few 4x6 prints it just decides not to print anymore.I had to get a Canon CP100 (4x6 thermal printer) which does a much better print than the HP, and it is more reliable.

I love HP stuff.But I would not buy this printer again.I would try another HP model, or a Canon.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
We've had the printer for about a year and have been very pleased with the quality of the prints. The borderless 4x6 prints are very nice. I was somewhat concerned with the flimsy lever mechanism for switching between the two print trays. Well sure enough, the lever broke. Now I can't switch between the two trays. Initially this was not a huge problem because we could still manually pull the 4x6 tray in and out. However, now after I've replaced an ink cartridge, it requires printing to 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper for callibration and won't recognize that I've pulled the 4x6 tray out. So now I'm out a printer (unless anyone has any suggestions).

1-0 out of 5 stars Engineered cheap
I was very happy with the 7550 for one of my computers and after reading the discriptions for the 7660, I thought "great - uses the same cartridges as the 7550". What I didn't read in the discription was costly: it only holds two cartidges at a time
-57 & 58- for color photos (the two cartridges in the box)or
-57 & 56- for standard black & color printing which I will use most of the time, while the 58 sits in its caddy where it can dry out or get lost. Anyone wanna buy an almost new 7660 real cheap? ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Quantity not quality
At the time of purchase I was considering a few cameras.I not only considered the individual cost but also the price of paper and ink.At the time I thought that I had made the right choice by selecting the most cost efficient item.The printer is very easy to use and prints quickly.For quick prints where quality is not that important this printer is great.If you want quality pictures this printer does not even come close to its counterparts.My friend bought the Kodak printer the same day.Her printer is slower and runs out of ink faster but the prints are phenomenal.My prints come out more quickly but the quality is just not there even when set to all of the best options.I wish now that I had gone another route.The printer has just one color cartridge for all colors, however if you print a lot of one color (example pictures at the ocean) then other prints look oddly greenish or redish without the cartridge suggesting a change.I also have a problem with stickiness, I have tried both the premium HP paper as well as other brands and it comes out sticky.The pictures stick to my frames and scrapbook covers even after several hours of drying time.For quick pictures to pin on a bulletin board or give to kids this is great, but for memorable lasting photos this isin't the best bet.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in NY
At first I loved this printer, it is simple to use and can be used alone or through your pc.Unfortunately the photos never dry.At first I thought it was because I either framed them or put them in an album before they had a chance to dry.I then printed some and let them sit out to dry for weeks and the photos never dried.Any photos that I have framed eventually stick to the glass, particularily the darker spots of the photo.I even got a new printer from HP and still encountered the same problem...has anyone else had this problem? (Yes I am using the correct HP paper and ink)

5-0 out of 5 stars A great little workhorse!
This is a dandy little workhourse that will generate countless 4 x 6 photographs from your digital camera with no hassle or fuss. The HP 245 is a small, tight little package that you can easily pack away and take along on trips.
The HP 245 really helps make the "digital darkroom" a reality, even during trips. I take mine on my boat together with a small laptop computer, and can generate high-quality 4 x 6 photos right on the spot, after taking shots with various digital cameras. The HP 245 has a built-in CF card reader and also reads various other popular media and you can easily print directly from the CF card or other media even without the laptop too.The color LCD allows you to simply insert the CF card (or other medium) and simply select what picture you want to print--without the computer.This also means that you don't need to bring a card reader along if you have your HP 245 since it functions as a digital media reader.
My HP 245 installed effortlessly on my IBM Thinkpad notebook computer (IBM TP 600E) running Windows XP, and is now my main printer for 4 x 6 photos and of course is the only printer I take along on trips. It is great fun to go on trips, take photos, and then give friends nicely framed photos the next day, or later the same day. Frankly, I never realized how much fun it was to have a printer along on trips. Most printers nowadays are big and bulky. This one is not.

The quality of the prints from the HP245 is excellent -- it uses the Type 57 tri-color cartridge which is the same cartridge that several bigger printers use.The photos are crisp, bright, and professional.This printer produces very decent 4 x 6 prints that look great framed on one's living room table, wall, or whatnot.

I also have the HP145 which is exactly the same except that it lacks the color LCD which allows you to view the pictures without a computer, although it will print out a little index of thumbnails for you to select from.When I needed a second printer I went with the 245 because the cost had come down.Either is excellent.

5-0 out of 5 stars This printer is awesome!
I gave this printer to my Brother for Christmas 2 years ago. While I was visiting him last week in Montana, we printed out the pictures I took.they turned out better then regular film. I couldn't believe what I was seeing.I plan to buy myself one.

5-0 out of 5 stars A go everywhere printer!
This is hands down the best compact 4x6 printer on the market.I have been using a Canon S750 for most of my digital printing, and it works great, but the ease of the HP 245 and quality of prints is awesome.Just pop in your memory card and start printing, with a small screen to view your pictures and loads of features, your pictures always look great! Plus the zoom feature is just fantastic.I also bought a travel case for it so I can take it with me on trips, and the hp 11.5 mil. premium plus glossy photo paper with the tab so you don't have to touch the photo is the best paper out there period.An all around great printer! ...

Amazon.com Product Description

The Canon i470D Photo Printer delivers high-quality photos from your computer or directly from removable memory, as well as detailed printing from the Web and crisp text. It achieves print speeds of up to 18 pages per minute in black and up to 12 ppm in color, along with resolution of up to 4,800 x 1,200 color dpi.

The i470D comes with a built-in print-operation panel, Canon Photo Viewer software, and slots for CompactFlash card, Memory Stick, Microdrive, SmartMedia, SD Card, and MultimediaCard. You can print with or without your computer--just connect a compatible Canon digital camera or camcorder to your i470D printer and print (see specifications for a list of compatible cameras).

The unit's LCD simplifies printing without your computer, offering access to features like image selection, size, paper selection, date stamp, and number of prints. Canon Photo Viewer software is automatically installed with the printer driver and lets you view images on your monitor while you print using the printer's operation panel.

The i470D produces edge-to-edge borderless printing (4 x 6-inch, 5 x 7-inch, or 8.5 x 11-inch prints) with the look and feel of a traditional photograph. The printer generates 4 x 6-inch prints in approximately 93 seconds. Canon advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology uses a nozzle system that ejects consistent, prescribed-volume droplets in microscopic sizes for fine detail.

The i470D supports the worldwide standard Exif 2.2 (Exchangeable Image Format File), so when an Exif-compliant camera captures a photo, important camera settings and shooting conditions are saved in the JPEG image file. Easy-PhotoPrint software analyzes the recorded data and automatically adjusts printer driver settings for optimum image processing. To simplify Web-page printing, Canon also includes Easy-WebPrint software (Windows only), so pages print just as they're seen onscreen. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome printer
I bought this printer to make photo pictures with my Kodak digital camera.I liked the idea that you could print pictures with it and not have to have it hooked up to a computer.

The photos that print off of this thing are awesome.You can't tell if it came from the photo shop or from my printer.

The cost to use this printer is 2 to 3 times cheaper than my Lexmark or Compaq printer.I finally got rid of those and just use my Canon printer.

It is quieter than my other two printers, too.Cheaper to run, quieter and great print quality.What more could you ask for??!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best printer I've ever owned!
I've been through a lot of crappy printers and this one was the best I've ever had.It's held up through 4 moves, a lot of printing through grad school, and the best part is that the ink cartridges are cheap and last a long time!I also recently discovered that it prints great pics!All around, you couldn't ask for more for $99.

5-0 out of 5 stars Solid Performer on 4X6 photos
The Canon i470D has turned out to be a very good investment.I am in electronics sales and we are constantly told to that "features tell & benefits sell!"

Well, this printer has provided me with a lot of benefits.I've had it for a year and I love it.

Benefits are: solid printer for Word documents, spreadsheets and especially WEB pages.It has not smeared or clogged the heads or printer as my old HP 660CES.

But the biggest benefit is that I can print crystal clear 4X6 prints of my new gradnson. I give them to relatives and not a one guessed that I printed them on a PC printer.I use Canon glossy photo paper but just found that FUJIFILM glossy works just as well.

Bottom line is that this printer provides me with all the benefits I was looking for. I hightly recommend it for someone like me who dowsn't want to be too technical but get a printer that works well over the long haul.

PS, I also have a Canon CanoScan D1250U2F Color Image Scanner and also got it a year ago.It also has provided me with a lot of benefits.

I am getting a new digital camera for the holidays and most likely will get a Canon Powershot A95 when the price reaches around $300.I think the 3 should really work well together. Since I am not a real techie I think this combo will suit me just fine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding printer...
The Canon i470D was impulse purchase and it has turned out to exceed my expecations.The images are excellent and the control over color levels "to the edge" prining makes this peripheral an exceptional buy!

Pros:
1. print quality;
2. built-in card reader
3. incredible software package;
4. print to the edge option
5. print saturation options (per color including black)
6. art-work backgrounds with frames for multiple images
7. image browser with slide-show
8. picture stitch program;

Cons:
1. should use Canon paper only; most reliable results
2. small ink cartridges means you replace more often

5-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased after six months...
This printer has been great. Bought it for $50, after a $50 instant/in-store rebate. The black ink cartridges are inexpensive and longer lasting than my previous, and costly, BJ-100 cartridges. The printer is fairly quiet and prints at an acceptable speed. So far the print quality (black & color) has been excellent. I have yet to use it for any photo pics though - so can't comment there. ... Read more


18. Olympus Camedia P-400 Digital Color Photo Printer

Amazon.com Review

The Olympus Camedia P-400 uses advanced dye-sublimation technology toprint an extremely sharp image on high-quality photo paper. The result looks andfeels like a traditional photograph. The P-400 also accepts a digital camera'sSmartMedia or PC Card directly, and it has USB and parallel interfaces for easyPC connectivity.

Weighing over 30 pounds, constructed of heavy plastic, and accented with metalcontrols, the Camedia P-400 impressed us with its sturdy design right out of thebox. To test the printer, we captured photos on a 16 MB CompactFlash card,placed the card in a CompactFlash-to-PCMCIA adapter (not included), and insertedthe adapter in the printer. (Our evaluation model came with the P-RBN photo inkcartridge already installed, but it is easily replaced through the front accesspanel. Also, our unit did not include driver software, so we were unable to testPC functionality.) Using the menu-driven LCD, jog dial, and arrow keys, wespecified our paper type (A4), input source (PC Card), and output photo size (8by 10 inches). We pressed the Print button, and after 2 minutes and 58 secondsthe P-400 rewarded us with a beautiful 8-by-10-inch photograph.

The Camedia P-400's color was very natural, not neon bright or oversaturated,and its tinting was slightly cool (more blue than red). Resolution was only 314dpi, but the dye-sublimation technology showed no visible grain. The resultswere better than many we've seen from 1,200 dpi ink-jet printers. We alsoprinted a slightly soft photograph and then used the printer's sharpeningfunction in an attempt to improve it. Unfortunately, unwanted pixelationincreased along with any positive sharpening affects. Printing speed was slowbut steady at 2:58 for each 8-by-10 print. Several minutes were required toprint one index/proof sheet of 20 photos, with nearly all of that time spentprocessing the CompactFlash card's data, not actually printing.

With only a casual glance, we could have easily mistaken the P-400's output ascoming from a photo lab. Only close scrutiny revealed minor pixelation, whichreflected the limit of our digital photo more than that of the printer. Theinitial cost is high, and the dye-sublimation ink cartridges and photo paper areexpensive; but if you can afford it, the P-400 Camedia makes a fine companionfor your digital camera. --Mike Brown

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing!
Got this printer for $199 new (plus tax).This is the only printer I have ever used that literally is plug and play.No tweaks or fiddling with settings (though the option to do that is available).Right out of the box it prints so good you'd think you were in a Kodak or Fuji lab.I've shot photos with Lumix LC5 and Lumix FZ20 and the prints are spectacular.The trickiest part was loading in the new film, after using up the sample film that came pre-loaded.It took a couple minutes to read the directions.Someone else commented about this and gave the printer a "1" rating.Big deal.After you install the film once, you've got the idea.

I ordered supplies on Amazon.com and the per print cost goes down to $1.58 total.Ya can't do better than that at Costco or Sam's club.Think about it.An 8x10 in 90 seconds for $1.58.Best deal on the market.

5-0 out of 5 stars Only the best will do.
Nestled upon my desk between a new Brother HP-1440 laser and a recently purchased Epson 960 CD printer, is a three year old Olympus P-400. Fast high quality text print-outs are routed to the laser printer, and the Epson is used for the specialty printing of card stock, CDs, and DVDs, but all photographs are created from the P-400, whether in color or black and white.

I originally purchased the P-400 for one simple reason; I wanted the highest quality prints possible of family members and for my wedding video service. The Olympus P-400 has never disappointed my highest expectations.

Most of us are familiar with how bubble-jet printers create dotted print-outs, which from a distance may look OK, but when viewed up-close the actual quality is not as good as hoped for. I have used a magnifying glass on print-outs from the P-400, and not only are there no dots, I actually do believe I prefer the P-400 print-outs over normal photographs. The P-400 print quality *is* that good. In my region of the world, film developing businesses on occasion ruin whole rolls of film, and so rather than my investing time and money into developing equipment to ensure quality photos, I can now get the prints I want, the size I want, and the quantity I want at any time I want.

The paper used in the P-400 is thick, very similar to normal photographs, and instead of the photographs having a brand name on the back side such as "Kodak", it reads "Olympus". The finished photograph also automatically receives a clear protective high gloss coating that does make the print feel and appear to be a developed photo. Unless a person has considerable experience with photography, they will not be able to tell the difference between a regular photo and one printed from the P-400. The actual cost per print-out is around $2.00 (paper and ribbon costs combined), which is not bad at all for an 8x10 or four 4x5 photographs. Advertised life of prints is about the same as regular photographs, around 50 years or more, which is far better than just a year or two with bubble-jet printers.

Changing the ribbon and paper is fast, clean, and very easy. Software installation is also quick and uncomplicated. The user friendly printer actually is a `plug and play'.

Though the P-400 has a normal printer parallel port, I highly recommend only using the USB port. The time required to transfer data from the computer to the printer usually only takes several seconds per photograph while using the USB, but it may take minutes through the LPT1 cable. With about two minutes from clicking "print" to receiving a finished 8x10 photograph, the speed is more than pleasing. The printer is fast enough and simple enough that I have not yet found a need to use the Smart Card slot nor even any of the other console controls. Through use of most any photo or graphics program, print-outs are as easy as `view and print'.

The only problem I have encountered was when the printer was new and the plastic ribbon roll rod would occasionally bind in the ribbon holder slot (caused by too tight of tolerances). I was able to trim off the holder's excess plastic to allow the ribbon to turn more freely, and after speaking to the Olympus technical support describing the problem and remedy (of which they were appreciative for the information), surely the new models will no longer have similar minor problems.

Three years ago I paid over one thousand dollars for the P-400 on sale, and I have never regretted the cost. Recently I was able to print-out numerous specially-formatted 8x10 copies of my daughter's college graduation, which if done through a photographer would have cost me more than the price of the printer. Today's prices are very reasonable, enough that my wife has begun saying she wants one for herself. In our high-tech low-cost society, not many items produce true quality results, but the Olympus P-400 is one product that actually does live up to our best expectations. Highly recommended, I know of no better desk-top photo printer than the Olympus P series.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great photo printer for the commited digital photographer
I've been printing 3.2 megapixel images on this and they're virtually indistinguishable from a "real" photo, even at the 7.64x10" full size (7.7 megapixel as advertised in the printer information) resolution. Don't believe the inkjet monkeys who tell you that an inkjet can produce comparable prints - they can't.

I chose this printer over the others available because of the size it is capable of printing, the better color-handling (for instance, the sony dye-subs tend to skew towards overly bright and red tones), and the recommendations of hard-core photo people.

Things you should know about this printer: when all is said and done, you can find this printer for under three hundred, and 100 prints are going to run you about a buck sixty five each (for a single 8x10) if you shop around. If you want smaller, cheaper photos, just print two or four up on a sheet, get 4 prints out of it on a sheet for about 40 cents each. Get out the scissors, and enjoy. Horray.

The printer has been having EXTREME difficulty printing directly from a smart media card - I don't like printing two-dollar blank pages - I've only had consistent success printing via USB connection to my 'puter, but it's a lot faster than printing from the smart media card anyway, so no real loss there - just something to keep in mind.

Reviewers have noted that the ink ribbon can be difficult to install. I don't really agree - olumpus' packaging makes this a straight forward procedure - it's just a little more work than the plug-in-the-inkjet-cartridge laziness we've all become accustomed to.

The printer is rather large and heavy, but you have to understand this was really initially intended as a professional's printer. It is solidly built, has a real feeling of quality construction. Just make sure if your living space is small that you've hollowed out a suitably sized location - think of it like a 16" monitor and you're working along the right lines size and space-wise.

For those with a mac (like me - running OS X 10.3), Olympus is seriously lagging on making a compatible driver. I wrote them and got a swift but lackluster response (no deadline for producing a driver). After printing several blank pages directly from my memory card and freaking out, I found the solution: do a google search for "Gimp-print," an open source & free driver bundle for the mac that runs under 10.3, and powers this printer just fine (so far - haven't tested with photoshop yet - only iPhoto, but I suspect it'll do just fine). It's free. Yay. Problem solved, no thanks to Olympus.

For those of you looking at this printer vs the P-440, the newer version of this printer, the differences are relatively minor (though the 440 does do TRUE 8x10 prints). They use the same paper and ink ribbons, so presumably olympus has a vested interest in continuing to make consumeables for this hardware.

Driver bitterness aside, the quality coming out of this printer had me jumping up & down once the photos started coming out. I'm really pleased, and the overall quality of the prints is enough to let me overlook the negatives, which have all been temporary.

5-0 out of 5 stars Quality images at home
I spent the big bucks when this machine first hit the market. The only problem is through Photoshop -- the ppd doesn't print the picture as you see it on screen. In Mac, I've tweaked through Photoshop, then import into IPhoto then print out for picture perfect images through the computer. Otherwise, dumping them back on to the digital camera media then inserting into the printer was the second best way to go.

Prints faster through IPhoto on Mac than through the digital cards.

For 8x10 size photos, still love my P400, even with the cost of film/paper and supplies. Even though prints can be ordered cheaper on some sites through the web, the quality of this printer HANDS DOWN beats anything I've ever gotten back from photo houses on or off line.

5-0 out of 5 stars Professional Quality at a Great Price!
If you want a printer that prints the closest to professional quality as you can get at an affordable price, this printer is for you.The only negative I have is the ink ribbon.I would rather use a cartridge, because it is simpler, but that aside, it prints excellent photos! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars print heads are duds
I have had this printer for more than a year.At first, it was a great printer. Not anymore!!It uses up ink like no other, yes, it is great to have the individual tanks(which is why I bought the thing) but now the print head isn't working right.Do several deep cleanings and use up nearly all the full tanks up, and the problem is still there.The pages have splotchy black marks and the texts are only partially printed.Went to the canon website, they don't even acknowledge this printer ever existed.
My recommendation is don't buy this model!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars uses too much ink!!
I have to agree w/ the other reviewer that said this printer is an ink eater. It's absolutely ridiculous how often I have to replace the ink cartridges. I rarely print in color & try to use the 'gray scale' option as much as possible, but it still doesn't help. Although the cartridges are cheaper (you can get all 4 for about $50) than most, they run out much faster so you end up spending just as much on them. The print quality is good & once the printer gets started it prints very fast, but having to go to the store & replace the cartridges all the time is a big hassle!

3-0 out of 5 stars Ink eater!
I've had this printer for about three months now and have printed about 20 pages total (not full color, not photographs).I am on my third set of cartridges already!In other words, after printing about ten pages (remember, not full color), I have to replace all the cartridges.I find the print quality to be quite good actually, but have never seen a printer eat through ink so quickly.Before buying a printer, I seriously suggest you look at the page output per cartridge.

2-0 out of 5 stars CanonS530D Review
This printer prints fast but the quality is poor. Consumer reports rates it a best buy but I disagree. Pictures come out very graney and its almost worthless to have a 2 megapixel or higher camera because the quality will not be seen with this printer. I do not recommend this printer to anyone. I bought the Cannon to replace a Hewlett Packard deskjet 932C and it was slow but the picture quality was superior to the Cannon. This purchase was a real dissapointment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Canon S530D Printer
I had purchased a refurbished Canon S530d printer for my wife for Christmas. So far, it has been fantastic. The text prints amazingly fast and crystal clear. We haven't taken full advantage of the photo printing part of the printer, but we tried it out on a regular piece of paper with good results. I can't wait to get some photo paper and try it there. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Printer I ever owned
I love HP printers, but this one takes the top award. It prints photos, word documents, and whatever else you want it to with ULTRA high quality. The LCD just adds to the design. Ink can be expensive as this model holds ALL 3 (black and white, color and photo) all at once, unlike lower models. Its easier though, and well worth it! This is some printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great printer
I am not a technophobe, yet I found this printer easy to use and operate.I have printed all the way to 8 X 10 photos with no problems and great clarity.I really like it, and have owned it since they first came out over a year ago with no problems.

5-0 out of 5 stars Quality Unsurpassed!!!
This is a fabulous printer.I had an hp see-through flatbed 4600 scanner that just wasn't working with my ASUS motherboard so I decided to opt for a photo quality all-in-one (Print, Scan & Copy) that I bought today. I'll be reviewing that HP model after I've tried it too. The print quality on the 7550 is every bit as clear as laser.The blacks are nice and solid.the 7 ink technology brings brilliant color results.There are 3 separate ink cartridges, but the yield is greater for this reason.Keep in mind that even though the machine tells you the ink is running low, wait until the print/copy quality is actually fading before you change the cartridges. Just keep an extra handy for when it's needed.I loved this printer and will miss it!The only con is that it's a bit noisy, but oh well, color quality and ease of use is way more important, don't you think?

3-0 out of 5 stars Great 6 inkphoto printer
I have used Canon, Epson and HP printers. Without a doubt I find the HP to be the one that produces the best results for me, with the lest pain and strain. This printer setup easily, without any unexpected turmoil. The machine calibrated its paper tray and 4 X 6 tray without hitch. I inserted a photo card, went to the menu and printed a stunning photo on premium glossy photo paper (gotta use this for best prints). I've printed over a hundred 8 X 10 and 5 x 7, and four times that many4 x 6 prints with this printer. I am still impressed with the photo quaility of its printouts, Some printers might be faster, some louder, so more expensive, but I think that this is one tough printer to surpass from print quality for the average home user. Easy to use, can print with, or without computer support, and has HP customer support available. A real A+ product.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great pictures...Just what I was looking for
I was looking for a printer that did my digital pictures and could print out my basic black & white documents. I recently had an Epson printer, but I did not like the print-outs and the ink cartridges were so difficult and messy to exchange. I decided to choose a new printer since the Epson wasn't doing my digital print-outs very well.

The first thing that stunned me about this printer is the LCD display in the front and the easy-to-use editing buttons. There is no need to go through the menus looking for the "zoom" or "rotate" selection, there is a button for each editing tool.

Another great feature is the front panel memory card reader. It is so easy to print a picture, even without the computer hook-up. If you have an HP computer, setup is so easy. All you have to do is insert the setup disc and plug in the USB (which is not included for some reason), the computer does the rest....All you have to do is read the Terms & Agreements.

I printed out pictures and they are so stunning, nothing come close to any printer I have ever seen. Also, the black & white print-outs are fast and look as though they are done by a laser printer. The only problem when printing is the 4X6 paper that is included in the paper tray is hard to use and gets jammed easily. I suggest not loading the smaller paper tray more than 15 sheets full.
