Can only print with a direct connection to compute


Does not use recommended Bluetooth, so is NOT wireless. Will not read SD card, so only prints hardwired to the computer, thus losing its portability. Recommended Bluetooth is defective and has been discontinued. No return, no refund. Very disappointing...

Wonderful printer


This is the 3rd one I have owned since the Picture Mate came out. Not 3rd because of malfunction but 3rd because I wore them all out with printing pictures of my trips. (The last one lasted 3 1/2 years and I got thousands of prints!!) I enjoy printing...

Picturemate Charm Pm225 Inkjet Photo Printer - Color Inkjet - 37 Second Photo - 5760 X 1440 Dpi - Usb, Pictbridge - Pc - Epson C11ca56203

It's as good as can be for a tiny portable printer


The interface for printing, editing and selecting is not intuitive. It makes errors with horizontal and vertical photos, printing them the wrong way when the picture is specifically one way or the other, the frame that the PM 225 uses on its screen....

Great little photo maker!


I love the simplicity of it and then it makes what we think are perfect photographs. I linked to my computer as well and what I love the best is that I can make four wallet sized photos from my older pictures as well as new ones from the camera card....

Great choice


I bought it strictly because Consumer Reports liked it, and I found it very easy to set up for memory cards and for computer photos. The instructions only mentioned earlier computers of the model I own, and my email to epson support asking if mine was...
