Review: Epson PictureMate Charm PM 225 snapshot printer

 

The Epson PictureMate Charm PM 225 is not as versatile as other snapshot-printer contenders, but it functions well at what it does. It's also cheap to buy and refill, which is a trade-off worth considering.

Affordable ink and paper packs ; Easy to use

Print speeds are on the slow side

The PictureMate Charm required anywhere from 54 to 70 seconds to print each of our 4-by-6-inch test prints, but they were worth the wait. It produced flesh tones that looked healthy and normal, it handled both fast-motion and landscape shots with...

awesome and affordable portable printer

 

I couldn't fit all the Pros above. Here are the rest: cheaper (and better) than most of the competitors, (optional) long -lasting battery pack, (optional) nice carrying case by Epson made for the PictureMate printers

amazing print quality, cheap replacement cartridges, LCD preview screen, small size, pretty fast printing times, can print with memory cards or from computer, can print wallet sizes and proof sheets, printing is surprisingly quiet

it's a bit heavy, but I don't think that can be avoided ; preview screen doesn't allow you to crop images (or I haven't figured out how) ; largest print size is only 4x6 although I wouldn't expect anything larger with a printer so small ; no major...

Neat little package!

 

So far I have to admit that this is looking to be a great piece of hardware, Time is the ultimate judge and in saying that I will be sure to update my review after a few months of use. I find Epson to be a trustworthy brand and have owned many of their...

Size and portability. The optional battery (not supplied) will add to its usefulness. Remarkably quick, easy to set up. Works with Ubuntu and most other Linux distros with drivers available from Epson website links. Crisp, clear prints

Doesn't seem to recognize any of my USB drives (FAT 16) that have photos on them...? Hmm

Good, No... Very Good

 

Charm docs say 6.5 ft. usb cable max. Not really something I think of when buying a usb cable. I'm getting by with a shielded 10ft cable. I'll have to keep track of picture quality. So far Excellent from a compact 12.1 megapixel camera from canxn

Very Small. Fast as lightening. Great Color. My Wife had it running before I came home. That's impressive. I used the custom option and only installed the drivers on my old XP laptop. Worked with MxxxSft OS photo tools

Bought the bundle! Ooops. Have to RMA the incompatable paper and print cartridge that was part of the bundle. NewEgg was cool and said sorry about the incorrect bundling

It's a Charm

 

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my 12 year old daughter who was wanting to get into Scrapbooking. She was so happy with it she burned through the Cartridge that came with the Printer in one day! Epson sells the Cartridge with the exact number of...

Inexpensive, very fast (faster than what it is spec'd at), quiet, quality prints. I did my research and this is the *BEST* photo printer in terms of quality and speed, even when compared to models 5x it's cost. It is the Top Pick at every Tech/Gadget...

Ships from Canada, so 3 Day Guaranteed Shipping via UPS turns out to be about 5-6 Business Days if you live in the States. Thankfully I ordered plenty early for Christmas ; Just like any printer, Consumables are going to add up to more than the price...

A great gift, very satisfying

 

The printer itself is cute, small enough not to take up any significant space. The picture quality is excellent, and the software provides very easy and effective ways to improve pictures. Speed just fine, quality excellent, ease of use, perfect....
