Ok, I've been an epson user for over 15 years, owning more than 20 epson printers for my home and graphic design business. Epson has always tried, and in most cases succeeded, in offering the best print quality at each price range. The reliability, consumables cost and customer support of their products has ranged from just ok to horrible, depending on the product and which way the wind was blowing at Epson.

This little printer indeed produces stunning prints right out of the box. But your smile will dim a bit when you realize that each ink cartridge runs out about 3/4 of the way through the provided paper in each pack, and that separate cartridges cannot be purchased. Oh well, so it's really more like 40 cents a print, instead of the 25 cents advertised. You can live with that, right? But you let the printer sit a few days, maybe even a few weeks without printing anything. Then you try to print again and the photos come out looking a horrible, banded mess. So you run a test pattern and clean the print heads -- usually between 2 and 5 times before a clean pattern prints out again. But you then find out each cleaning cycle drains the cartridge tremendously, so much that a brand new cartridge will only yield around 40 prints (which =$1.00 a print!!) if the cleaning cycle is used even 3 times, which seems to be absolutely necessary whenever the printer sites idle for more than a day.

In short, this printer seduces you with beauty, then steals your wallet. I have a stack of unused photo paper over a foot high, but I'm always out of ink! Of course, Epson could sell a cleaning cartridge for this, or sell the ink cartridges separately, or even expand the ink capacity, or even just advertise the real amount on images you'll get from each pack.

Photo quality is the most important thing to me. I'm making a photo album of my 'trip of a lifetime' and needed the flexibility of printing photos immediately and printing in different sizes, etc. I shot high-resolution photos on the trip. The photo quality from this printer is as good as I get at my local Fox Photo (high quality photo printer). The images are sharp and have excellent color saturation without beeing over-saturated and fake looking. I had some of the photos printed at Walmart as soon as I got back (first time I used them) and was very disappointed. The cost of print on this printer is pretty low also - .25 I have read. The first ink cartridge gets used up pretty quickly, 50 photos or so. Mostly it is priming the printer. Much better life on the second cartridge onward. I'm getting too wordy - anyway, I would definately buy this printer again, no question about it.

The Epson Charm does print quality nice looking photos....the PROBLEMS are:
1. The printing is MUCH SLOWER than advertised and SLOWER than the Canon Selphy.
2. It prints only from memory cards or directly from the camera (which on some of my camera's it didn't recognize the device and wouldn't print.)
3. It does NOT print from a USB memory card.
4. You must purchase an additional double ended USB cable in order to print pictures from your computer and if you have a Mac, this still might not work. It works on some of our Macbooks but not others.
5. It doesn't have as many print options as the Canon Selphy.
6. It advertises that it prints a picture in 47 seconds...when connected via USB directly to a DSLR camera, it took exactly 3m17s to print 1 bordered 4x6 pictures.
7. It takes 1m36s to print directly from a SD card to print 1 bordered 4x6.
8. To print a 8 mini wallet 4x6 directly from a SD card, it took 8m43s

I purchased the Canon Selphy and tried it out in direct comparison to the Epson Charm. I wanted the Epson Charm mostly because of the name as Epson makes quality photo printers and the Epson feels and looks of better quality than the Canon Selphy. The Canon Selphy is superior to the Epson in that it prints easily from a USB memory card, your camera or your macbook computer and it is faster. The Selphy takes 2m47s to print a 8 mini wallet on 4x6 and 56s for a 4x6 bordered picture when plugged directly into the camera via a USB. I did not try directly with a SD card but imagine it would be less time.

The bottom line is...this is an excellent printer if you are printing directly from your camera or your camera's memory card and have the time to wait for the picture. The quality of the photographs via the Canon and the Epson are the same. Nice, bright vivid colors.

I just received my printer yesterday afternoon from Amazon and in about 20 minutes I was printing some of the greatest 4x6 pictures that I have ever printed!! I have always been an HP printer person - but just got tired of always having to buy more ink cartridges - and they are not cheap! So I figured up the cost of a print on glossy paper with this printer and looks like it will be about 27 cents per picture - that is about as cheap as I can take a disk to WalMart or Sam's and get them done - and the picture quality is just as good - maybe better. I still have my HP printer for those "bigger" prints that I need - but in my opinion you just can't beat this little printer for 4x6 and smaller prints, and it is so cute! I might have to get the rechargeable battery so I can take it to parties and things to give prints away - at that price it is totally doable.
