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

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 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

5-0 out of 5 stars Canon i80 - Continuing A Tradition Of Fine Printers.
I've owned several Canon portable printers in the past, including the Canon BJC-70, the BJC-80, and two Apple StyleWriter 2200's (BJC-70 bearing the Apple logo). I've also owned several portable printers made by other companies, none really as satisfying as the Canon printers.

I'm now using the Canon i80 (HP zd7000 & Windows XP). This printer clearly evolved from those earlier Canon printers, improving in some ways and not in others. On the positive side, print quality and speed is roughly on par with many desktop printers within this price range. Canon has also greatly reduced, and perhaps even elininated, the problem of the ink jets drying and clogging between print jobs (on earlier BJC models, the ink jets would dry out if the printer wasn't used for a week or so). And, unlike the i70, this printer comes with the multi-voltage power supply needed by international travelers.

Other things have not improved. Like those earlier printers, the i80 suffers from paper feed problems, ranging from paper not feeding at all (unless forced), to multiple sheets of paper feeding at the same time, to paper not feeding straight. Of course, this is more pronounced with very thin or very thick paper (thick envelopes are especially troublesome, often only solved by sharply creasing the envelope edges before using). All this is more of a nuisance than a serious problem, so should not automatically rule out this printer from purchase consideration. It doesn't happen all the time, or even most of the time, and can be reduced with experience.

The price continues to be high, especially with accessories often included with other portable printers (cables, battery attachments, batteries, and so on). If on-site portable printing is truly needed, requiring the purchase of accessories, I would have to recommend another printer with built-in battery. However, if one only needs to easily move a printer between hotel rooms, business meetings, or offices, the performance and convenience of the i80 wins out.

Some things are a mixed bag. The case design of the i80 has improved over earlier Canon models. The paper holder/cover now completely covers the printer, protecting it from dirt/dust or while packed in a bag. However, at the same time, Canon switched that case from a neutral near-black to an oddball copper/tan color which doesn't match any computer I've ever seen. Of course, this doesn't really affect performance, but it is distractingly noticable.

Finally, some things have gotten worse compared to earlier models. The i80 does not properly print some web pages in Internet Explorer without an external plug-in (Easy Web Print), which adds another IE toolbar complete with bright red Canon logo and buttons not matching other toolbar icons. Without this plug-in, the right side of some web pages are cut off. Canon either needs to reduce the intrusiveness of this plug-in or integrate this capability into the print driver as other companies do (the three other printers I now own handle these same web pages properly without a plug-in). Luckily, printing everything else with the i80 is entirely painless.

In conclusion, all portable printers are a compromise offering portable convenience with some inconveniences. The Canon i80 is no exception. However, the inconveniences associated with the i80 are minor, easily outstripped by overall convenience and performance. As such, I can comfortably recommend this printer to any fellow road warrier.

4-0 out of 5 stars This is a great little printer!
I would recommend this printer to anyone who is looking for the convenience of having a good quality printer for trips when there is a need to work in a hotel room. The printer is small and compact and actually performs better than expected; it prints remarkable fast. The only challenge I find is periodically more than one piece of paper comes through the printer at the same time.

4-0 out of 5 stars Canon falls short with Apple user
A dual-purpose printer for traveling, works almost to my satisfaction. Printing 4x6 snapshots for friends does not interface well with my Apple PowerBook G4 with OS X Panther, however. Photos are blurry, out of focus, flat with the Canon program. Photos printed using Apple's iPhoto are quite acceptable - even up to 8x10 in most cases. A workaround can be done with Photoshop Elements, but seems a bit unnecessary with a product from Canon. A pricey printer, but functions quite well in my experience, and fits my requirements as all-around printer where laser quality is not an issue.

5-0 out of 5 stars Canon i80 Perfect for Golf Outings, etc.
I bought this to pack with my eMachines notebook because we take 40 guys to Myrtle Beach each October. I needed less hassle than carrying a bulky laser (I was using a Samsung ML1210), and something faster than an older inkjet. Do not compare speed to much older inkjets of 4 or 5 years ago -- this seems faster than my Samsung laser for one-off output. The black text printing is very quick for an inkjet. Posting scores and Team sheets should go rather quick. I do not plan to do color photos because I have less-expensive options. Size is about 12" x 7" x 2" thick -- perfect for packing away. Now I have EVERYTHING in one carry bag -- nothing to think about or lose. It does grab several sheets at one time every once in awhile. I can live with it if it doesn't become persistent. I just purchased the LK-51 Battery Supply to be truly transportable -- works 6 hours on one charge with the included Lith-Ion Battery. Printer needs USB Male A / Male B Cable -- order online very inexpensively (don't buy at local stores -- $22 or $30 is a rip-off for these; you can get them as cheap as $2 at CyberGuys.com).

5-0 out of 5 stars Great prints in a small package
I just bought one of these little beauties and am very happy with it.It fits right into the case with your laptop or notebook so that it can go anywhere with you.Easy set up and high quality prints that are sure to please.Alot of added features that allow you to stitch together photographs and other little tricks.The price can't be beat, as it will be $50 more in an electronics store.The only hitch is that it doesn't come with a USB cable, so add $30 to the price tag. ...

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 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

Amazon.com Product Description

Why wait for the family to email photos to each other when you can print them instantly? The Sony DPP-FP30 pops out professional-quality photos quickly and easily, and it's compatible with both Windows-based PCs and PictBridge digital cameras. Speeds are a little faster when you're printing from your PC--you can expect 4-by-6-inch photo in about 90 seconds, compared to approximately 120 seconds from a digital camera's memory card. It'll only take a few clicks to make your photos look their best, thanks to the included imaging optimization software--reduce red eye, improve colors, or crop the edges.

The dye-sublimation print process incorporates special laminated paper with snap-off edges, which is available in 4-by-6 and 3.5-by-5-inch sizes. This technology allows dye-sub printers to produce great looking photos even though they're rated at lower resolution than comparably priced inkjet models. The DPP-FP30 offers 8-bit color and 300 dpi resolution, producing borderless prints that are resistant to sticky fingerprints, ink smudges, and moisture. The 20-sheet paper tray stocks just enough to make sure everyone at your party gets a print to take home. Sony includes a one-year warranty covering parts and service.

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

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.

2-0 out of 5 stars Paper Feed
I can echo the comments re the paper feed. I've been using the 450 since December 2004, and it worked great at first. Especially pleasing was the wireless bluetooth connection to my iPAQ. But, as others have indicated there is a problem with paper jams and feed in general. Sometimes it thinks it's out of paper when there are 4-5 sheets still in the tray. Lately, even though I've cleaned the cartridges, it has been dropping large ink blotches on the print-outs that I can get to feed. Frustrating! Had real possibilities...

2-0 out of 5 stars PAPER WON'T FEED
I have now owned 2 of these printers and I thought they were very good at first.However, after a couple of months I started experiencing paper feed problems.The printer just won't grab the paper.You have to try all sorts of paper amounts in the feeder before you come up with a proper thickness where it grabs.My patience has run out on this second printer and I will go back to the Canon.

5-0 out of 5 stars very portable, sturdy & reliable
I'm not sure why some other folks have had trouble with this printer - I have never had a single glitch & I have put it to the test.I travel a TON & take my laptop & printer with me almost every trip - the HP 450ci has withstood the wear & tear of over 50,000 of travel (air, car & train) in the past 9 months & aside from a few scratches here & there you'd never know it wasn't fresh out of the box.

I also have used my HP 450ci to print almost anything you can think of - text docs on regular mid-weight paper ("new" or recycled, both work fine), 8.5x11 photo paper, 4x6 photo paper, transparencies, labels, even t-shirt iron-on transfer sheets - not a single problem.Hope I didn't just jinx myself! :)

Seriously though - if you're looking for a portable printer that's rugged enough to really travel, but also looks slick sitting on your desk or pulling it out of your bag in a client's office , the HP 450ci is THE way to go.IMHO.And no, I don't work for HP!I actually am not a big fan & have NOT liked some of their other products, but the 450ci hasn't let me down.

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent portable or desktop printer
If you need a portable printer this is a great choice. It is well-built & solid without being too heavy to take with you.At the same time, it's versatile enough to be your everyday desktop printer too.I have tried a number of the "portable" printers that are available and so far the HP450ci looks the best, is built the best, and has lasted the longest even with a lot of use.In summary: It's well-built, light weight and the print quality for text & pictures is good. ...

Amazon.com Product Description

The Canon BJC-85 color bubble jet printer is an exceptional combination of lightweight portability and professional-quality desktop printing--a remarkably fast, commanding little printer, enabling you to produce letters, memos, and reports on all your excursions. The perfect companion to your desktop or laptop, both Mac and PC compatible, the Canon BJC-85 color bubble jet printer is practical for travel and use just about anywhere with its long-life battery (and optional battery pack) and the AC adapter. Plus, fast built-in infrared IrDA wireless technology lets you print without a cable connection.

Sleek size is just an introduction to the printer: documents print in crisp 720 x 360 dpi black and at a surprisingly swift speed--for a portable printer--of five pages per minute in black and white and two pages per minute in color. These rates are supported by a 30-sheet paper feed for continuous printing. The crisp and vibrant colors delivered by the Canon BJC-85 color bubble jet printer on charts, graphs, and photos are necessity, not luxury, whether you are home or away. With the addition of the optional IS-12 color image scanner cartridge you can transform the BJC-85 into a sheet-fed color scanner, which is an outstanding opportunity to gain two compact and portable machines in one.

Even with the AC adapter and optional battery included, the Canon BJC-85 weighs in at just 4.5 pounds. Printing while on the road or in the air is easy when you carry the Canon BJC-85 color bubble jet printer's impressive high quality with you. A universal power adapter, color and black ink cartridges, and a CD-ROM with printer/scanner drivers are included.

3-0 out of 5 stars Poor paper feed
I have owned BJC 70 and BJC 80.Both have difficulty feeding automatically. I have had to guide each single piece of paper in order for the feed to catch.

I have also gone through a power supply.Currently my power button is not operating and cannot turn on.

I paid the high price of $300 for dependabilty thinking that it was reliable but the variety of mechanical failures have caused me to look for another brand name.I do love the portability design, but I guess design does not equate with dependability.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, with one discrepancy (sp?)
This is a good quality printer.I like it.There's only one thing I don't like.The ink tanks (cartridges) are small.It seems like I'm always putting in a new one.And of course, they have to have all three colors in one tank so that the remaining ink of the other two colors gets wasted.At least the tanks are cheap.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Fabulous
I traveled to India on business, where just plugging something in was quite the adventure, so when I pulled this little gizmo out of my suitcase (where it took up almost no room), attached it to my laptop, and heard the whir of it going into action ... well, I almost wept. So far from home, with such a little piece of technical ingenuity. I have wanted to thank Canon for the past year, and so I'm doing it now. We actually use the BJC-85 as a secondary printer in my home business ... you know how it is, you don't want to walk all the way from the dining room to the office. It's sturdy, compatible with Mac and PC, and just too cute for words. For goodness sakes, it's not much bigger than a carton of eggs!

1-0 out of 5 stars Road warriors beware!
Another piece of junk disguised as a portable printer! (Read my review of the HP 350 portable.) On this unit, the paper feed mechanism failed after 3 months -- repaired under warranty. Last week it stopped putting ink down at my client's facility (really embarrassing). It spite of "5 deep cleanings," a new catridge, and 5 more deep cleanings the printer would only print blank pages.

I was then forced to go out a buy HP's new portable - the 450 (I'm keeping my fingers crossed) so I could continue working.

1-0 out of 5 stars Printer did not work.

2-0 out of 5 stars When it works, it works...When it fails, you have to RMA it.
05/2005 - We have had this printer for 6 months. The one we received from the company did not work when it arrived (the printer head would not move). I had to RMA it. The replacement unit worked fine for a month. Then it stopped working also, and would not respond (would act as if it was printing but not print anything on the discs). I tried replacing the ink ribbon, but no change. I had to RMA it. The replacement unit worked fine for 3 months when we used it. Now it is not working AGAIN (the printer head will not move/print/change cartridge). I am calling the company to see if I can still get another RMA.

We only print on CDs occassionaly (10 CDs every few weeks).

The company tech support is helpful but has long telephone hold-times on NON 800 phone number. They did tell me they do not repair the units, the just send a new unit after determining that your unit is bad.

The unit price is not worth it if its product life is only a few months. I would NOT recommend this unit.

2-0 out of 5 stars Cheap, ok quality but goodluck...
I got this printer from Rima and now returning it. It's a cheap thermal printer compares with any others. Very light weight with ok printing quality which is still a great deal. I used it twice printed out 8 labels and it's broken now. It wouldn't detect the cartridge in the printer, when I choose change cartridge, the head won't even move to the rest area for cartridge replacement. A pop up says "The Main Switch is Off, Please switch back power supply and try again"... this made no sense, this thing is simple enough with 1 switch. Anyway, I restarted everything and try other machine, same result... The tech doesn't help out at all... I hope this is only an individual case. But I'd like to warn everyone, this might happen.

5-0 out of 5 stars Does a great job for the price
I've printed about a dozen discs w/ the Z1, so I feel qualified to give a mini review.First, let me say that this little disc printer does a great job given its price.Anyone complaining that the text rubs off must not be doing something right, because you really, really have to rub it w/ your finger to get it to smudge.And this is even right after printing.

Some notes about the package:

1. Print quality is excellent unless you print really small font stuff or complicated graphics.The way it rotates the disc to print in all 4 areas works flawlessly.

2. There is not a hard on/off switch, so if you don't want it coming on each time you turn on your computer, you'll need to unplug either the power or the USB.No big deal.

3. The printing software is easy to understand, but a little klunky.e.g. if you want to make the entire window bigger to see what you're doing, you click the "Zoom In" button, but each click barely makes a difference.Also, the software requires the .NET framework be installed.Now, it's beyond me why ANY printer would need that installed, but alas, it does.The bad news is that the installation of .NET on a single-user Windows XP machine will result in you having to click your name to login upon bootup whereas before it would just go all the way to the desktop when you turned your computer on.The good news it that you can delete the guest account that gets created, and the disc printing program still works fine.

4. I have several types of discs that I've tried out w/ the printer, and the ones that are matte finish are definitely worse than the slick super-shiny kind.The matte finish discs result in text that is not really black.The edges look a little fuzzy, and the fill isn't solid.Now, with the other style discs, slick, super-shiny discs (shiny silver on the writing surface, and a smooth, slick clear layer on top), the printing is much, much better.It borders on professional looking text.(The text itself, not what the printer is capable of in total)

5. The ability to save disc designs is great and works flawlessly.Most everything else about the printing application is easy to understand.

Overall, I am very pleased with the Z1.It serves my needs perfectly.And compared to the cheaper Casio printer, this one seems to have a lower per-disc cost based on the replacement cartridges.

4-0 out of 5 stars An inexpensive alternative to CD labels
Trying to put a paper label on a CD is not only a hassle, but if you don't get it right, the label can jam up your CD mechanism.

Currently there are two types of CD/DVD printers, thermal and ink jet. Thermal has at least three advantages over ink jet.First off, thermal printers are less expensive than ink jets.Add to that is the fact that you don't need to use expensive "printable" CD's, thermal printers work great on the cheapest blank CDR's. Finally, thermal print is more durable, it doesn't rub off as easily as ink jet print.

I chose this one over the Casio CW100 because the Primera prints on all 4 quadrants, whereas the Casio only prints along the top and bottom of the CD, not the sides.

The Primera label design software is easy to use. I did notice that it's not exactly WYSIWYG, the printed text appears smaller on the actual CD than you would expect from the design screen.Printed text was smooth and gives your CDs a professional look.

I was disappointed with the "graphics" feature.Don't expect too much, with only a single color and 200 dpi you will need to simplify your graphics.Think back to the rudimentary graphics on your 1980's IBM-PC monochrome monitor, that's about what you get.

Overall I am happy with my printer, it does exactly what I hoped it would do.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product, great value
I have made about 200 CDs with the Signature Z1. The results are exactly as promised. Yes, you can see the pixels at 200 dpi, but you have to look hard. I already have "my money back" vs. commercial CD duplication.

There is no problem with ink adherance to CD blanks designed for thermal printing. With good blanks the spoilage rate is less than 5%, and that's being picky. It even prints cheaper blanks with only slight rub-off problems.

The Signature Z1 is nominally a monocolor printer but I have made CDs in which the logo field is red and the other three fields are black. It requires two passes through the printer.

My only complaint: the hub-gripper does not always want to release the CD. I found a painless workaround: drop a blank CD over the printed CD to push the pins back, then lift them both off together. At last, a use for the transparent CDs that are found at the top and bottom of each spindle! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Photo Printing Amazing
I got a new laptop this year, and it came with a free Dell Printer/Scanner/Copier thing, which I was pretty excited about, but it turned out it was HUGE.Took up waaaaay too much desk space in my already cramped dorm room, so at a friend's recommendation I got the HP 450 CBi.It's amazing.

First reason it's amazing is that for day-to-day printing it is just as good, if not a little better, than any other HP inkjet I've ever had, and I've had quite a few.

Second, the portability is great.Not only is it great to be able to bring my laptop to the theatre and update paperwork, etc. on the spot, but it's even better to then be able to immediately print it out and hand it to whoever it needs to go to.

Third, it's photo printing quality is incredible.With HP Premium Plus glossy photo paper, and the #58 photo cartrige, all of the pictures I've printed on it are virtually indistinguishable from film prints.

The only cons I'd say are the capacity of the ink cartriges (and the price, but I suppose all ink cartriges are rediculously overpriced), and the overall price of the unit.However, if you've got a good amount of money to spend on a printer, need to conserve as much space as you can, and could benefit from the portability, I would highly recommend this printer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but a tad overpriced
I bought this printer to go with my HP Pavilion ze5200 laptop the summer before heading off to college.I knew that in college, I'd be mobile and on the run, so I was looking for a good quality printer that was small enough to fit in a dorm, but wouldn't crap out on me as I was printing a ten page paper half an hour before it was due.

It's been about nine months since I bought the 450Cbi, and I've had a really good experience.It's small enough to fit compactly on my little dorm-room desk, and every time someone walks into my room they say, "Oh! What a cute printer!"It's small and lightweight enough to throw in my backpack along with my laptop as I go to the library or student center to study, and the fact that it can be battery-powered is just awesome--I can be sitting outside in the middle of the quad, with no outlets in sight, tapping away happily on my laptop with my printer chugging out my papers beside me.The quality is fantastic, both photo and simple black-and-white, and one black ink cartridge lasted me eight months, which is amazing considering all the papers a college student has to type.

For the negative stuff:As other people have said, it has a problem with paper jamming.I've had several times where the paper has jammed, and I've had to work like the devil to un-jam it.However, nothing has broken, and all in all, it's held up beautifully considering how much I put it through, always lugging it from one side of the campus to the other. My infrared printing did suddenly stop working on me for some reason--my laptop will detect the beam and begin to print, but an error will pop up and refuse to print anything that's not a Notepad file.As well, I was also disappointed that though the printer is advertised as being wireless, it doesn't actually come with a Bluetooth card.No matter though, a parallel port cable is short, compact, and has worked perfectly fine for me.I do think that it is a little overpriced--I paid $250 for it--but for me, it's been a great a little printer and I don't regret my choise to buy it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Paper Jambs
I heavily use the HP 450CBi daily. Usually print 75 to 100 pages of Docs per day. Battery life is good.Print quality is good.Print speed is acceptable for a portable. Durability is questionable.I keep it clean and in its own protective case.I am on my THIRD HP450CBi printer in 9 months!Paper jambs, multiple sheets feeding,print carriage movement obstructed.I have tried many different types of paper based on quality, brand, thickness of paper, inkjet, multipurpose, etc. all with similar results.When number 3 gives out I think I go for a cheap disposable desk type model and plug into a 12V/110V power inverter in my vehicle.No Bluetooth as advertised.Forget IR.Just plug in a USB cable.Good Luck!

1-0 out of 5 stars 450 CBi misrepresented by manufacturer.
I purchased a 450 CBi so I could use the Bluetooth technolagy with my HP ipac 2215.The printer is clearly advertised as having Bluetooth connectivity.Upon receiving the printer theinformation included indicates that a HP Bluetooth printer card is required priced at $97.00.After spending 3 hours on line and on phone I find the item can't be bought.HP's last instructions were to search on google for it.I did only to find only one reseller listing the item.They were out of stock. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Easier than adhesive labels, in my opinion
I'm in a band, so it's really nice to have an inexpensive way of printing CD labels. And I think it looks more professional than paper adhesive labels, because you're printing directly on the disc. How easily the ink scratches off depends on your printing surface; use CDs with a nice matte finish and the ink will adhere well. I was not disappointed with the print quality; 300dpi is reasonable for this device. The ability to use True Type fonts and to preview the image is also nice. And while it has simple wizards for novices, I wasn't disappointed with the advanced layout features, such as front-to-back ordering and position locking. You could even do color graphics if you split an image into RGB separations and rotated the color ink ribbons. And it's great that the disc turns automatically to print on both sides. Overall, I think this is a great solution when you consider the costs of various CD printing options. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Somewhat limited, but satisfying results
The printer can stand alone and isn't difficult to use. It is far easier, however, to use in conjunction with a computer. Creating and printing a label takes only minutes. The results are good, but your CDs have to be "perfectly" flat.Minor, invisibile flaws on the CD surface or any manufacturer printing or design, even when "transparent," yield very poor results. On my first day of trials, I got 4 of 7 CD labels to look good. The 3 poorer ones had faded or incomplete printing due to CD surface imperfections. I would be wary of buying CDs over the internet since you can't see what kind of surface they might have. Rough, textured surfaces likewise yield poor results. I plan on buying my CDs locally, but only generic brands tend to have that "slick as a baby's behind" title surface that is needed. Now, it sounds like I am not pleased, but I really do like this label system. J&R had very affordable ink prices (under $7.00; they were $19 locally!) The CDs that came out good really were pleasing, especially since they contain my home studio recordings. This is so much better than paper labels!

4-0 out of 5 stars Pros & Cons
I got this printer soley for my small bussiness. I wanted a proffesional look on my DVDs for a good price. This pinter will print you a full label (that is top & bottom) for around 50 cents a disc. I was able to take it out of the box, put the bateeries in and print a test label on the practice disc in under 5 minutes. If you are on the move and want a proffesional label look, then this is a pretty good idea.

Pros:
1. Cheaper cost per label than ink and paper.
2. Easy software & interface.
3. Can save templates made on the unit in the internal memory (about 100 files can be saved)
4. prints one label fairly fast
5. Different color cartidges are the same price as the black cartidges.
6. Can print at least 40+ discs with set of batteries (I just past forty discs and I am still going)
7. Has an auto turn off after a few minutes of inactivity.
8. "wireless" capability (meaning no Ac or printer cables)
9. Has a nice little library of images on the unit.

Cons:
1. Flimsy, drawer doesn't shut as precise as it should
2. Unit is complicated
3. Can't store templates from computer to internal memory on unit.
4. Holds only 1 Ribbon
5. You have to turn the CD/DVD around to print other side. (could it really have been that much more complicated (expensive)to either put another head or a motor to move the disc?)
6. Not always a parralel print between top and botton labels.
7. Don't even try to print photos.
8. Doesn't come with an adapter.
9. Have to label the disc before you burn it.

I bought the other model right below this one (you have to use a computer to print with it)and it came with an AC adapter, even though it said "optional" on the box. This box also says"optional", but does not contain one! This reall made me ticked, but so far the batteries have done really well, but Casio could have a least added a lousy adapter.

When using this unit make sur you buy CDs/DVDs that have nothing stamped on the front of the disc, this will give you an unobstructive printing area. Another neat thing is, I sometimes use black colored DVDs and I use the silver ribbon cartridge to print on them, this gets people attention, especially when you are doing something to do with marketing.
The software has nice feature of printing a text file that contains everything on a disc. I have taken a majority of mydata disc and have used this feature. I then label the text file that same as the disc and save it to my computer. I also have another software program that seaches WITHIN files and this is nice when searching for a certain file. So when the search come up finding you file in a certain text file, you know what disc & folder to find that file. Follow me?
Although, the software could use a couple of things, like the addition of guides (lines that help you line up text and/or pictures) Or the abilit to 'Save As' instead of hitting save then Save as.
Conclusion:
Overall the unit works well for low volume labels at any given time. It has a professional label look on the CD/DVD. The software is easy to use. And it does great for portability

3-0 out of 5 stars Better than a marker pen
A friend heard I was planning to purchase a printer for labeling DVDs and CDs, so he gave me his Casio DC-75 to try out. Actually, the exact words were, "If you can make use of this, you can have it." I gave it back after about a week in case he could find someone else who wanted it.

In all fairness, the CW-75 is a nice little thermal printer. It's a great alternative to using a marker pen or sticky label on a disk. But, I'm giving it only 3 stars because although I think it does very well at printing text, other printers that cost less offer more features and user options.

The CW-75's lettering is excellent as long as the disk has a perfectly smooth surface. If the disk surface has any sort of texture, you'll get breaks in the lettering. The printer has a variety of built-in templates, fonts, and standard symbols. It can print in colors, as long as it's one solid color at a time. (This printer uses a ribbon cartridge, so if, for example, you want to change from black to red, you have to take out the black ribbon and insert a red ribbon.) You don't need a computer to use the printer, but using it with a computer (PC only, not Mac) gives you more flexibility.

Altho the CW-75 keyboard looks extremely complicated, after using it a bit -- along with reading the relatively small manual -- I'd say a person doesn't need to be technically oriented to be printing out sharp looking disks in a short time. Sharp text, that is. If you're hoping to print a full color picture, the CW-75 won't do it for you.

For less (as of Nov. 1, '04) than the price of the CW-75, there's the Epson Stylus Photo R200. It not only prints text and up to full photo quality onletter and legal size paper, it can also print directly on CD/DVDs that have an inkjet-printable surface. With the included software -- or software available from other sources -- you can print full color photos, text, graphics and whatever else you want anywhere on a disk.Compare that to the CW-75 which pretty much limits you to printing text and simple line art in one color, unless you want to play around swapping color print ribbon cartridges.

That's why I gave the CW-75 back to my friend and purchased an Epson R200 here at Amazon.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor results
I was hoping for a neat and simple way to print titles on my CD-R and DVD collections. I found neither with the Casio Disc Printer.

I tried a total of 15 CD-R's before returning the item because I could only get accurate printing on 6 of the discs.I was trying media from Maxell,Sony, Memorex and while the printer would work on some brands once it would fail the next time.

Also the printing area is very small.I believe it is only 1/2" high on the top and bottom.It is very difficult to get much information on the disc except fot the Title and Artist.

For now I have gone back to labeling by hand, but if anyone can tell me of a better solution I would love to try it.

4-0 out of 5 stars An ingenious device...
I have found this disc title printer to be quite useful.As long as you buy blank CD/DVD's that have little preprinted writing on the front, you will have absolutely no problem printing quality, professional-looking labels on your discs.I rarely use the PC interface with the printer, instead opting to use the built-in screen for formatting my discs.Regardless, I have had no problems with this unit, and have found it to be very useful. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Photo lab quality at home
This cp-220 printer was easy to set up and print photo lab quality pictures right on my kitchen table, without my computer. Only one concern: I wish that the 4x6 paper did not have the post card lines/address/stamp on the back.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it
So far I am very happy with the printer. The prints look like they were done at a professional lab. The only thing I wish is that I could buy the ink and the paper separately. ... Read more

With the Brother SC-2000 professional stamp creation system you can make a stamp with almost everything you can put on your computer screen, whether you have a Macintosh or PC. Take graphics, text, clip art, logos, signatures, even photos, and turn them into professional-quality rubber stamps. Or choose from the 150 preformatted designs that come with this unit. Once your design is established it will take about one minute to transpose into an actual rubber stamp surface. Choose from 11 different stamp sizes. The preinked stamps you create mean no separate messy inkpads. Re-inking bottles of nontoxic, nonflammable, and quick-drying ink make refilling and printing quick and clean. Choose from four different colors--black, red, blue, and green--to make your creation.

The rubber stamps are designed with microporous control so you get the same amount of ink transfer with each impression. They're durable so they will take heavy, repeated application. The stamps have a high-tech look with translucent color holders, making them as appealing as they are functional. Whether you will use these stamps for stationery, mailing, copying, office equipment, or to sell your own stamp designs, you'll have fun and experience satisfaction creating reliable, high-quality stamps.

2-0 out of 5 stars Software problem issues
At first this machine looks promissing. But the software support is bad. It has a problem with the serial connection. Plus the image editing software needs more improvements.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great quality
This mahine is a great addition to my profit centers in my small business.Since I have purchased I no longer need to out source my stamp business.This machine is easy to use and works every time!

5-0 out of 5 stars Money maker!!!
This machine has saved me so much time and money!This machine creates high quality stamps far superior to stamps that I have been previously ordering that take 2-3 weeks.I can now make my own stamps in house and at a cost 1/5th of what I was paying to have stamps made.I have owned this machine for over 9 Mo. and have had no issues.Brother does provides a support phone # specifically for this machine and supported me wonderfully with the one simple question I did have.

1-0 out of 5 stars SERVICE stinks
