allow lots of time to print!

I am an event planner and I purchased this printer to use on site at an event where I took a photo of the guests with the host as they came in. My goal was to then print the photos, put them in a paper frame, then have the photos available for them to take home at the end of the night. The description says that it only takes 37 seconds to print per photo but what they don't tell you is there is significant lag time between each print. It took me four hours to print 192 photos, not the two hours I'd been anticipating. The printer is slick and I love it - even the professional photographer at the event was impressed. But if you're expecting your prints to only take 37 seconds from start to finish before the next one starts printing, be aware it will take you double the time you think. Otherwise, it's perfect and I would recommend it.

This is my third Picture Mate, second PM225. I use them a lot, until I wear them out. They have always done an excellent job, printing over one hundred pictures at a time. Color is spot on. Speed is fast. Portability is an added bonus. Prints dry fast so I can get them into albums right away for presentation later that same day, no smudging or colors changing. The printer is popular, so the print packs are readily available. My only problem involves the number of pictures I print at one time. After the buffer fills up, my print jobs will slow down whether I use the Epson software or other software. But for normal use, everything should work fine. I strongly recommend this printer.

I thought this would be a single purpose no worry printer for 4 by 6 pictures: it does not connect easily to a mac the bluetooth is proprietary it is not compatible with AirPrint it made this a pointless purchase for me, and it is not clearly defined upfront has not having those capabilities.

At first I was a little disappointed as I thought I had ordered a PM260 which I loved. After I saw this was a charm I started to send it back, but decided to give it a try. Love it as much or even more than the 260. I have 4 grandchildren and am always making pictures and printing them and this does a great job. I have even used it without the computer at birthday parties, etc. to make pictures and give to guests.

This little printer is mobile even w/o power (optional battery pack which I purchased), produces lab quality photo's and is pretty quick. Wish they made one to do 8x10 with the same quality. Very satisfied.
