Epson PictureMate Charm PM 225 Reviews

Printercomparison reviews the Epson PictureMate Charm PM 225 and writes;
“Photo quality was really quite good; I thought the images looked and felt like they could have come from a photo lab. The colors were bright and accurate while the black and white prints actually looked black and white instead of very dark brown that can be common. The pictures also had great detail thanks to the high print resolution; the small details were sharper than i’ve seen on other portable photo printers although you lose a bit of that around the corners of the image.”

Epson PictureMate Charm PM 225 User Reviews

So far so good! | Rating: ★★★★★
“I have had this photo printer for a few weeks now and have used it quite a bit. It is easy to use and so fun. The pictures look great…the dark colors lose a slight bit of detail but very minimal. Pictures print out quickly. I haven’t yet used all the features so can’t comment on all of those. Easy, fun and compact! Very happy with my purchase. The price on this fluctuates so if not in a hurry…keep checking back and you may have a nice surprise! “ – by RJB

Excellent photo quality, | Rating: ★★★★★
“Photo quality is the most important thing to me. I’m making a photo album of my ‘trip of a lifetime’ and needed the flexibility of printing photos immediately and printing in different sizes, etc. I shot high-resolution photos on the trip. The photo quality from this printer is as good as I get at my local Fox Photo (high quality photo printer). The images are sharp and have excellent color saturation without beeing over-saturated and fake looking.” – by InKC

Not Perfect but Very Good, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Otherwise the setup is easy, the pictures – as someone has said – might be coming out a bit darker, bolder than true color, at least a few times I’ve been surprised by the darkness of a printed photo. It’s not bad, but dramatic. The quality otherwise is a lot better than my former photo printer, which was a Canon, as this is about the quality I’d expect from a professional run at a Kodak shop so I’ve been very impressed. If you don’t expect perfection this may work for you.” – by Terran

Greatest little printer I have ever used! | Rating: ★★★★★
“I was printing some of the greatest 4×6 pictures that I have ever printed!! I have always been an HP printer person – but just got tired of always having to buy more ink cartridges – and they are not cheap! So I figured up the cost of a print on glossy paper with this printer and looks like it will be about 27 cents per picture – that is about as cheap as I can take a disk to WalMart or Sam’s and get them done – and the picture quality is just as good – maybe better.” – by Robbie Ruffin Bostick

Amazing quality and strength of images, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I think anyone would be very happy with this. I’ll never be able to go back to inkjet pictures. It’s the perfect size for fast postcard printing which brings smiles to my granmother and it’s crazy fast..” – by Some Guy

Perfect for my project, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I bought this printer after reading reviews about it and other portable photo printers. I’m a photographer and I use this printer to print on-location event portraits. The quality and colors of the photos are wonderful. I use several SD ards and take 10 images per SD card, print directly from the card and recycle the card. Works great and the people love having the momento from the event. “ – by Lisa S. Brooks

Very Impressed, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I am so impressed with this printer! The pictures are amazing! The colors are so vibrant and I think the prints turn out better than they do from the drugstore. The reviews I read before I bought this printer stated that the ink cartridge that came with the printer ran out before the paper did, well my ink cartridge lasted for more than the paper so I had to dig into the extra pack of ink and paper to print more pics. I say if you are thinking about buying a printer to print 4×6 photos this is the one to have! I love it! “ – by Crissy2010
