Great little printer!!
After reading almost all the reviews on Amazon to buy a new photo printer, I decided on The Selphy. My mom also has it and I liked the quality of the prints. I have had 2 photo printers, a HP Photosmart (LOVED IT!!) and a Kodak all in one (HATE IT!!) All I wanted was a photo printer! Not a fax, copier, scanner, printer. Who would have thought that would be so difficult? The Photosmart was the best printer for quality. The Kodak, a HUGE let down. Lines through my photos, really?
USB and PictBridge sockets
The Canon SELPHY CP900 is a dye sublimation printer come of age, with direct wireless connection to mobile devices, and quick and easy print from PC or via its self-contained controls. Running costs are high compared with typical inkjets, but print quality is generally good and photos are dry and more robust, even straight out of the printer.
Great product for business on the go
For my small mobile tire business, this printer is outstanding. I didn't want to worry about dried up ink jet printers and I certainly didn't want some huge power hungry laser printer in the small space my box van provides. So far i've printed 70 invoices for customers on the spot and they're very impressed with the results and that i'm able to print an invoice out of my van.
Hard to feed sheets straight
The Brother PocketJet PJ-663 is a perfectly adequate portable printer and convenient in some circumstances, as it doesn't require separate ink cartridges or other inking system. You do have to use thermal paper, which is a bit inconvenient and more than a bit costly, but the main problem is the price of the printer itself. The cheapest price we could find it for is just over £500.
We see no reason for this astronomical price, just because the printer sits in a niche market.
I went to an ADI convention a few months ago and Rhino had a booth there. I was trying to talk my boss into buying the 5200 or the 6000 with no luck. When I saw the 4200 at the Rhino booth of coarse I started to ask questions about the comparability of the 4200 with the other more expensive models. When I found out that it will do almost as much as the 5200 and the 6000 I had to buy one.
Good photo printing
The GL10 Instant Mobile printer certainly works, and it shows that Zink technology is moving forward at a reasonable pace. At the same time, like most portable photo printers, it's a fairly costly way to produce on the spot photos, but we could have predicted that anyway. The connection with Lady Gaga is perhaps the most disappointing part of the GL10's construction.
Easy to use.
The GL10 is a tough and fun little device that does the job quickly and without much hassle. It's not cheap; you get 10 sheets in the box and its £12.99 for 10 more. Quality's not amazing, and maybe you would expect better for the price, but then at this size the pictures are more for sticking on the fridge than framing.
Does exactly what Canon says it will do.
To sum up, this machine appears to be an excellent choice for anyone who wants 4 x 6 prints. It works exactly as Canon says it does. It works well. It makes very good prints. But I think the per-print cost to be a bit high, so I knocked the rating down to four stars.
The Canon Selphy CP800 is Canon's most compact as well as cheapest dedicated photo printer in the Selphy lineup as of this writing. It's extremely portable and easy to use with a built-in memory card reader, PictBridge/USB port and the optional battery pack. Not to mention the photo quality is excellent and versatile thanks to easily added clip art, frames and speech bubbles.
High quality photos
Priced at about $80, the Canon Selphy CP800 is a compact photo printer that prints high quality photos quickly and without fuss. It is also easy to use, with the process of printing photos from memory cards being simple and straightforward. It is not perfect, though; the screen is small and rather grainy compared with other printers.
The Kodak ESP 3 comes with great software for editing photos and applying touch-ups to portraits, but printer software is only as good as the physical results, and the print quality isn't nearly up to current industry standards. Your money would be much better spent on alternative multifunction printers.
