Epson PictureMate Snap review

 

main content The PictureMate Snap is the middle offering of Epson's three personal photo labs. For $200--$50 more than the entry-level PictureMate Pal --you get everything the Pal offers, plus an adjustable preview LCD, faster prints, and the ability...

Fast print speeds; allows for greater control over image settings; optional battery pack available; able to crop images on printer; can save images to external storage devices; adjustable LCD.

Photo quality could be improved; frames are limited mostly to Disney-themed ones.

With its range of features, decent print quality, and fast print speeds, the Epson PictureMate Snap is a solid choice for snapshooters who want an at-home photo lab.

EpsonPictureMate 240

 

A portable photo printer that's quite a lot cleverer than it looks

Great picture quality, useful editing features, easy to print without a PC

Daft design, cheesy presets, doesn't support every type of card

This Epson makes photo printing portable – and is quite a lot cleverer than it looks

Great photo prints and some good on-printer editing tools - shame about the looks, though

Epson PictureMate 240 review

 

Great results despite its chunky looks

Fast ; Delivers good results ; Low running costs

Odd styling ; No software

Results are good, and costs are low, but looks aren't a strong point and it could do with some software

Epson PictureMate 240 review

 

Epson's PictureMate 240 is the bulkiest portable printer in this group, but the advantage is that it's sturdily built.

The printer that thinks it's a coolbox. Low-cost compact that prints stunning photos.
