Just wondering about everyone's opinions on this printer? I have seen the output and am very impressed but it and the fact that it almost has a garaunteed cost of $0.29 per picture. Any of you own it? Any downfalls(other than speed)? (I already have a full size Canon printer this one will be for my sister/mom for printing straight from digital camera, I keep the canon at my dorm)

So do u guys think?

Also I can get a lightly used one (went through only 2 ink cartridges for $65 US shipped) should I go for it?

There's 3 models of the Picturemate. The original, express and deluxe.

The express is advertised as faster than the original but has the same features.

The deluxe has a preview monitor and printsa little bitfaster thanthe express.

The ink cartridge and 100 sheets of paper comes in a single box for about $29.00. That's the $0.29 per print. The cartridge is guaranteed to print at least 100 prints. I believe that some magazines have actually gotten well over 100 prints per cartridge.

Also, I believe Epson is coming out with a package with 2 ink cartridges and 270 sheets of photo paper. They claim that it'll be about $0.24 per print.

I have the deluxe and it's great for those quick casual (party, get to together) printouts.
