Awesome portable photo printer.
from Oregon on 9/7/2013
This printer prints photos that look like they were printed at the photo lab. I plan on taking pics of my nephew and scrapbooking on the go. Perfect product for the portability.

Printer prints nice pics. Slow, but I expected that. Issue that I had was trying to hook up to computer via USB. Software did not completely load. I am using a Mac, and when I try to add a printer then it won't completely load. The Epson disk won't completely load either. Epson site says to make sure that all updates are provided by manufacturer computer, which I ran through, but there are no updates available. I am stuck with having to use my SD card, which is fine, but you have to select pics one by one, which is a pain. I will likely use this printer for odds and ends type of picture printing, and find something better that works directly with iPhoto.

This is a great little printer. I am very happy with the quality photos it produces. It is very convenient for travel, and I take it with me on scrapbook retreats. I haven't been able to figure out how to print photos from my 4S phone on the PictureMate, but I think that's operator error, not the printer's fault.

This is my second Picture-Mate printer. The first lasted about 4 years and would no longer print good quality pictures. The convenience and quality of photos printed are both exceptional! Two complaints: I wish you could buy the ink cartridge separate from the paper as it is now provided in the photo packs - the ink often runs out before I have used all the paper and I have accumulated quite a back log of 4 x 6 paper - would love to buy a couple cartridges without paper to even it out. Also just recently had to clean my print heads after less than a year of ownership - maybe that is normal, but I don't remember it happening this soon before. Makes me worry about longevity of the printer. Other than that, I LOVE it!
wonderful except for durability

The PM225 is a wonderful printer.The color reproduction is most excellent. The prints are indeed smudge, water and fade resistant. The cost of a print is modest, especially considering the great quality. My only problem is durability. This probably is because I do a lot of printing. I average about two dozen prints a day, mostly to share with friends. I have purchased several PM225s and none has survived the one-year warranty. Epson has been very good about providing replacements under warranty. But, I still have to purchase a new one every 18-20 months. I am about to have to purchase a new printer because my current one -- a warranty replacement -- is beginning to wear out. Despite my concern about durability, I will buy another PM225 without hesitation because of the high quality and modest cost of prints.
