Good printer if you use it a lot

By kristin from Boulder, CO on 06/16/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had this photo printer for a couple years now, and my mom has the same one (which is why I bought it). I think it's great for the price of the actual printer, altho photo paper & print cartridges can get expensive depending on how much printing you are doing. My one BIG issue with this printer is that if you haven't used it in a couple weeks, the next time you print, the pictures are all stripey and faded-looking. I used to always run the diagnostic tools every time this happens, which wastes a lot of paper and ink. Then one day I realized you can just wait a day, then try again, and usually by then it has cleared up and is fine. But what's annoying about this is that you can't print pictures on a whim when you want to, and also if you wait TOO long, then you have the same problem yet again (plus wasted paper every time). So my advice is to use this printer for things like printing a big cache of pics, and getting them all out of the way at once. The quality is great. Otherwise it can be annoying if you only want to print 1 or 2 pics at random every once in a while (which is more my style).

NOT cost-effective

By NCPhotoguy from Winston-Salem, NC on 04/19/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have had this printer for the past year. I use this printer as a form of printing preview to cull out those prints that are suitable for my Epson 1400. The print quality is incredible on this little beggar, but that is the end of the good points. It is very expensive to print with. I have NEVER gotten the ink usage that Epson says you will get. I suppose that if I printed a picture the size of a postage stamp I might get good cartridge life, but that ain't gonna happen. The cost of the ink cartridge is a rip. If I go a week without printing, I have to clean the printheads and waste a LOT of ink. Bottom line... Pro... Wonderful print quality. Cons... Maintenance costs are too high. Very poor Print to Ink Costs ratio. This is a NO recommendation.

Not a good buy

By shutterbug from Orange park, FL on 12/12/2009


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The picturemate 260 Dash was given to me as a christmas present about 2 years ago.At first it did a great job.But after I let it sit for about 2 months without printing pictures the print quality was off.I bougt a new cartridge to help with the cleaning and the Dash used the ENTIRE cartridge to get the print heads right again.I've tried again and again to replace the cartridges at considerable cost to me.And wound up with tons of extra photo paper for my trouble. Overall this product is a waste of money.I could have spent that same money I used to buy all the extra cartridges to have a photo lab print my pics and had the pics in my albums right now.Instead I have a pile of unused paper,a worthless printer and a digital card full of unprinted photos from nearly a year and a half ago.

Great Color Correcton

By InnerLife from Colorado on 07/24/2008


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A great, reliable, quality portable photo printer for multiple applications. A big step up from the Deluxe Photo Printer model in quality even though it only uses four color jets compared to the previous six. The color correction is wonderful and the pictures get plenty of comments as to how pretty the colors are. The selection steps are laborious for large numbers of photos and prints. I'm very disappointed in the wasted ink left in the cartridges once the chip inside says the ink is low. Local used cartridge companies are unable to reset the chips. Epson says they have no plans to develop a recycling program for the used cartridges. I've had several cartridges that shut down after only having used half of the photo paper. Epson offers a refund if you return the unused paper. Unfortunately, the cost of postage doesn't make this a viable option.

A winner!

By Scrapaholic from Texas on 07/24/2008


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The printer is a great product! I love having the flexibility to print what and when I want. I can quickly print the photos I want for a scrap project without having to run to the store and therefore wait and wait. The quality is excellent and the ability to crop and adjust results in even better pictures. It also is so easy to use that even those who hate computers can use it. A printer worth having ... oh and so portable, too!
