Service and support

 

Sony PictureStation DPP-FP30

Easy to operate; relatively inexpensive; speedy.

No memory card slots or on-printer controls; not Mac compatible; high cost per print.

This bare-bones photo printer makes good-looking--albeit expensive--prints.

Sony PictureStation DPP-FP30

 

The Sony PictureStation DPP-FP30 is a little expensive to run, but delivers photos on the spot in about 90 to 130 seconds.

Prints directly from PictBridge cameras. Extremely easy to set up and use.

No memory-card slots. Cost per page for 4-by-6-inch prints is about twice what it costs for digital prints at a typical photo or drug store.

Sony DPP-FP30

 

Unlike its predecessor, Sony's latest PictureStation doesn't try to do too much -- dropping the LCD display, video-out capabilities and memory card slots -- and as such sports a much smaller form factor.

Fairly inexpensive ; Excellent print quality ; Fast ; PictBridge support ; Easy to use ; Stylish design ; Waterproof prints

No memory card reader ; No battery pack option ; Slightly higher cost per print

Sony PictureStation DPP-FP30 review

 

Intro You won't waste a lot of time learning to use this compact, 300dpi dye-sublimation photo printer. Devoid of any on-printer controls other than a standby button, the Sony PictureStation DPP-FP30 is strictly a plug-it-in-and-print component. There...

Hardcore Fans Apply; Not for the Sensible Buyer

 

Sony has always been one to do their own thing yet keep their customers based on reputation of name and quality. They've been pretty successful in each arena of electronic equipment that they've dabbled in, and have always been one to try and ...

Very small & portable, smudge-free pictures, overall good quality

No onboard controls or options, pictures are heavy on red, expensive cost per photo print

Inexpensive but very reliable., Fairly inexpensive, Excellent print quality, Fast, PictBridge support, Easy to use, Stylish design, Waterproof prints

None, No memory card reader, No battery pack option, Slightly higher cost per print

This snapshot photo printer makes beautiful prints for a reasonable price, but its cost per print is another story.

Sony DPP-FP 30

 

Small and compact and easy to use.

Can be a bit temperamental with Windows 7. Worked out of the box straight away but had a couple of glitches after that. Paper and cartridges are expensive.

Sony DPP-FP 30

 

Compact, ease of setup, quiet. Paper is relatively affordable.Print is OK but not brilliant

Print Quality is not brilliant, but then again its not a high-end piece of kit or priced to be so.
