Great Printer

This printer is great. Has a lot of cool features, the picture quality is great too. The only downside is the slow speed it prints at. I use it for events and it's just super slow, but if times not of the essence then it's great. Also note that while printing from a computer, there is no preview of the pictures on the screen so this awesome screen serves no purpose for my use. The program it comes with is cool, allowing you to place names and much more on the pictures before printing. All in ...

Door Stop

It made nice prints fresh out of the box. Then the printer wasn't used for 3 months. I just tried to print something and only yellow ink came out, in streaks. I opened two brand new paper/ink packs to see if a fresh ink cartridge was the problem. Still nothing. I did a nozzle cleaning, then a deep nozzle cleaning, Just streaky I'm throwing it away. Too bad. It made nice photos when it worked.

WOW

By

from Boca Raton, FL

I was looking for a 4x6 color printer to replace my sub dye printers which were too much trouble to use. I came upon the Epson Picture Mate and after reading all the reviews, I purchased it. It came a few days ago and setting the printer was so easy. My first snaps were better than any I could have purchased from a photo store. Having a Mac proved to be difficult to connect to, but I worked around that by exporting the pictures to a removable drive and then using the USB slot on the printer, I was able to print super pictures. I have not given up on connecting it to my computer, but I am thrilled that it is so great. This is the easiest way to print the popular 4x6, but if in the future Epson will bring out a printer that does 5x7 in addition to 4x6, I will make the switch.

Old technology

from Lexington, KY

I should not have to buy additional equiptment to use bluetooth or insert a camera memory card. I should also be able to insert a thumb drive with pics. This device needs some major updates. I owned an older model picture-mate and loved it. So far I am not impressed with this model.

Mobility

I haven't use it in full use of it since Christmas of 2013 yet. I had several occasions during the year that I used my other printer, the artesian series which was big to lug around until this Epson PictureMate Show came along. The only problem with this is one cannot buy individual ink cartridges. But I guess I'm keeping it simply because it's small and portability.

The PictureMate 300 is working fine, the remote came without battery. I had to purchase a battery before I started using it.

PictureMate PM300

By

from PA.

I have used a lot of printers over the years for my photos. But this is buy far the best printer I have ever used. The printing is top notch. I take a lot of photos in a years time and have had them printed buy pro's as well as home printing and this printer does every bit as good of job that any pro could do. Money well spent I would tell all my photo friends to get one. Some of them have already used mine and were very pleased how their pictures turned out.

Picturemate Snob

By

from Menlo Park, California

Before purchasing my first Picturemate, I did a good amount of research on the internet, mainly reading consumer reviews. I wanted a portable printer, and saw there were many things to consider: ie print speed, printer size, print options, price, features, serviceability, the list goes on. For me the bottom line was the end product: sharp, clear, crisp prints with great color. All reviews pointed me in the direction of Epson Picturemate. I started out with the Personal Photo Lab Deluxe Viewer Edition. (This is the model that uses the 6 color ink cartridge.). My research had paid off. The prints looked fabulous, the machine was easy to use. But there were newer models, and they promised more speed. I hesitated going to the 4 color cartridge. Upon the purchase of my PM240, I was pleasantly surprised. I compared prints--The prints were just as nice. I started doing photos at parties, so I wanted back up, heaven forbid a printer break down at an event. So I also purchased the PM260 and PM280. ALL my machines are awesome. (I sold my Personal Photo Lab and my PM240 because the viewer screens were small in comparison to the 260 and 280) Now I have the PM300. This is a great machine! It does everything its predecessors did, but now my print preview is huge, and surprisingly sharp too! This is a great feature to have, when the photographer has taken several similar shots, and you want to print only the best one, and want to see the best facial expressions and other details that you cannot see on the smaller screens. Prints are sharp, colors are great, printing is fast, the printer itself is aesthetically pleasing, compact, the slide show is nice with several options, and best of all, this PM300 uses the same ink cartridge as all my Picturemate PM series. Some minor downfalls: since I print on location, I wish this had a battery pack option. And, as parties can get crazy, I wish the remote had a simple tether. I'm on my second remote after misplacing the first one. Hmmm, maybe nix the remote and make Picturemate Show a touchscreen....... But those downfalls are a minor trade off, when you see how everyone LOVES the photos. My favorite reaction I hear is "Wow, did this fantastic photo just come out of that little machine?"

I like that I can put the memory stick in and print without needing to install it on my computer. Everything is so compact, and I can carry it with me and print: Except for the output tray. Why wasn't it designed so that it would slip into a slot somewhere? That's why I gave a four-star rating.
