This new model's high-quality photos and low per-print cost should land it on any amateur photographer's shortlist.

Fast, excellent print quality

Optional rechargeable battery is pricey

Epson PictureMate 500 - Photo Printer

 

Epson updates its impressive Picturemate home dark room with very impressive results.

This is a very neat, simple printer, giving superb quality prints with a minimum of fuss. Able to print directly from a PictBridge camera, just about any memory card or from your PC, it’s also very versatile. With just a single ink cartridge for its...

Epson PictureMate 500 review

 

Excellent shots on Epson paper, but what about the build?

Clear print resolution ; Simple buttons ; Optional three-year warranty ; Great software

Poor build ; Cold images

The PictureMate 500 is undoubtedly a nice printer - such a shame it died on us.

Epson PictureMate 500

 

Epson first came out with the PictureMate a year ago (see Sept 04 issue for full review). We praised its dinky dimensions, sturdy carry handle and creditable ease of use.

We'd be happier if the PictureMate didn't install itself as our default printer - it's rather trying constantly having to cancel print jobs for Word documents - and we found the flimsy build a disappointment. Otherwise, Epson has improved on a very...

Epson PictureMate 500 printer

 

Compact photo printer When we tested 4 x 6-inch photo printers back in June ('A photolab in your lap') Epson's PictureMate was our favourite, thanks to the quality of its prints and its excellent economy - and despite the fact that it wasn't the...

Like the original, you can attach external devices to the PictureMate 500 via a USB port and print from those (CD drives, Zip drives, external hard drives or flash memory drives). Even better, you can use the PictureMate to save images on a memory card...

Epson - PictureMate 500

 

Epson is one of the main manufacturers of photo inkjet printers and its dedicated, small-format PictureMate 500 is interesting not only as a convenient, portable photo lab but also because it prints in six colours, rather ...

This is a very good photo printer. It's generally well-designed and reflects the kind of use to which most people will put a dedicated small-format printer. Whether you're printing from a camera, a memory card or a PC, the quality and price of 6 x...

PictureMate 500

 

Often something is described as portable meaning you do not need a JCB to move it, however the real meaning of portable is being able to use it without a power point.
