So, that would make the cost of printing each photo about $0.38-.40/each, and that doesn't include the cost of the printer itself! I love the convenience of being able to easily print photos at home, but it comes at a high price when you can get it done online or at a local retailer's for $0.12-.20/print. I guess that's why they can afford to charge so little for the printer.
Quick follow-up as of 9/7/08:
I let the printer sit for a few months - just hadn't had time to print anything lately. When I tried to print some photos yesterday, the color looked awful and there were banded lines on it. So I put in a new cartridge, but the photos still looked bad. The troubleshooting guide recommended cleaning the heads 2-3 times. I cleaned the head 8 times per the instructions, and it did look better, but still had the lines. The instructions say:
"If repeated cleanings don't help, you can also turn the Epson Stylus off and wait at least six hours or overnight (this allows any dried ink to soften).Read more ›
Based on all of those reviews it appeared that the Epson was a better quality unit so I bought one.
After printing the first photo with the Epson, it was apparent that all of the reviews were correct. This is a great printer with lots of options and is extremely easy to use.
Just to test the difference between the Selphy and the Picturemate, I printed the same exact photo that I had from the Selphy and compared it to the PictureMate. There is a major difference between the two. The Espon print was MUCH brighter and had much more detail than the Canon. As a professional photographer, I was really amazed at the quality this little printer.
Another real nice feature of this printer is the size of the screen. It's a large 3.6" screen and is extremely easy to navigate. The Selphy had a tiny screen and wasn't near as user friendly.
True transportability, and the quality of prints EXCEEDS what I have had printed at commercial locations by a long shot. The ONLY drawback of course, is the limitation of 4X6 prints... but for what I'm using it for, it's PERFECT!
After buying here at Amazon, I suggest going to Epson's site and purchasing the special Accessory Kit [...] which includes two full ink/paper kits (150 prints each), AND a carrying bag for the printer.
Best photo printer I have ever used... and inexpensive as well!
The printer accepts any memory stick, USB thumb drive, direct connection to camera and displays all photos on its built in LCD screen. The photo paper and ink come in a pack and yield 150 photos which comes out to about $.23 per photo. Pictures print amazingly fast...in less than 15 seconds.
The quality of the prints in most cases surpassed the labs that I go to. If you love gadgets, have a passion for great photos, you will be so happy you bought this printer!
