Pros Picture quality, speed, compatibility, price
Cons Only 4x6 prints
Summary This is a huge improvement over the standard PictureMate printer. I sell printers at a major retailer and have the opportunity to try all of the photo printers out there. This is far superior to both the Lexmark and HP inkjet offerings as well as the dye sub printers out there. The pictures come out looking like post cards and are water proof! I would strongly recommend this product to anyone. It is decently fast and the quality is unbelievable!

Pros Extremely high quality prints
Cons Slower than I would like it to be
Summary In a fast paced world in which we live, the Picture Mate is slow to print a 4X6 print. I would (after trying several 4X6 printers) defy you to find anything that produces prints with the quality of this printer, and the clarity of images printed.
Pros Great picture quality.
Cons slow printing speed.
Summary Great, great picture quality. Lack of speed kept it from rating of 10, but it is manageable. I've tried both HP375B and this printer, and there just is no comparison. HP375b is faster and includes battery at the same price, however, lacks picture quality, ink smears, 100 HP sheets cost $30 and 3 color ink costs another $25 versus $20 for Epson 6 color ink and 100 sheet print pack from Amazon.com, making it 20 cents per print. Price is unbeatable and is cheaper in the long run even after figuring in the extra cost of Epson battery. Picturemate Deluxe is a must have personal photo printer.
Pros Photo quality is great on Epson paper. Set up is a snap. Prints well beyond the advertised 100 pictures per ink cartridge.
Cons Printer is very slow.
Summary Good stand alone photo printer.
Pros Great looking pics
Cons Inkcartidge clogs if not used for a few weeks
Summary At first I was thrilled with the results of this photo printer. Small footprint, great pics, and a new cartridge with paper was not expensive. But If I did not use this printer for a few weeks, one or more of the nozzles clog on the cartridge, making it useless no matter how many times I used the cleaning utility. I bought a new ink cartridge and had the same result after just 2 weeks of not using.
