3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jul 15, 2011

The Epson PictureMate Snap PM 240 is a color inkjet printer that is designed to print professional photos for personal use. The printer offers a print resolution of 5760 x 720 pixels and is capable of printing a 4" x 6" borderless photo in 45 seconds. It holds up to 20-sheets of PictureMate photo paper and utilizes Epsons PictureMate ink system which is smudge, fade, water, and scratch resistant for long lasting prints. The PictureMate Flash PM 240 features a built-in color preview monitor for adjusting photos before printing and is a step down from the Flash PM 280 since it lacks the integrated CD burner for printing photos directly from CD. It also has a built-in memory card reader, a Pictbridge port, and is available with an optional Bluetooth adapter for printing photos wirelessly. The printer is Energy Star qualified and comes with a 1 year limited warranty. Features/Specs PictureMate Ink System 20-Sheet Paper Tray for PictureMate photo paper Borderless Photo Printing - 45 seconds for 4" x 6" Optional Rechargeable ... PROS: (1) small and light, easy to move around the room and fits in anywhere (2) can print 3 ways (from memory card, camera, or computer), offers good versatility (3) prints are high quality, look as good as prints developed from a film camera (4) has some nice extra features built in, like adding borders or resizing for wallet size photos (5) easy enough to use for any skill level, dont have to be tech savvy to print direct from printer ... CONS: (1) replacement printheads need to be cleaned several times before they work consistently (2) doesnt recognize SD cards over 1GB in capacity

Epson PictureMate Snap PM 240 Photo Printer
4 Star Review     

Strengths: fast, simple

Weakness: Costs $0.20 per print

simple to use and easy to refill. Color is very good. Original ink cartridges only last about 20 prints. Refill cartridges last two to three times longer. You will have more paper than ink in the refill.

An affordable, high quality printer
4 Star Review   By member winstonspike - Nov 29, 2007   

Strengths: The quality of this printer is really great. It was a breeze to set up.

Weakness: The only one I can find so far (which happens with most printers nowadays) is the ink. The cartridge contains all the colors so once one runs out, you have to replace the whole thing.

When I first took the PictureMate out of the box I wondered if something that small could give the quality that you get at Walgreens, CVS, etc. In my opinion, the quality that you get from this printer surpasses that, and as a bonus you don't have to drive to the store to do it. I got this to start a family scrapbook and I am so happy I went with this model. It is a high quality, affordable printer.

Very nice little photo printer from Epson
4 Star Review   By member icandoit - Nov 4, 2007   

Strengths: Small, light, compact, portable. Print photos even without using a computer.

Weakness: None so far

Very easy to set it up. 5 minutes was all it took me from opening the box and printing out my photos. The prints came out wonderful each and everytime. I was amazed at how this little printer puts out such great quality.

a photo printer for fun
4 Star Review   By member nn2000 - Oct 4, 2007   

Strengths: price

I got the printer free after rebate with a digital camera purchase from circuit city. The size of the photo printer is portable. With a handle besides the edges, it is easy to carry the printer from one place to another. The photo quality is acceptable. If considering it as a free item, nothing can be complained about.

Great portable photo printer
4 Star Review   By member bsvasan - Sep 2, 2007   

Strengths: Great 4x6 photos, compact and portable printer

Epson picturemate snap PM 240 is a great, affordable and portable photo printer. The best part of the printer is you do not need a PC to print photos. You can use the media card slots to view the photos taken in the photo viewer LCD, do some changes (like red eye fixing), and then print the photos. The top cover keeps the LCD and printer menu panel well protected from accidental damage etc. Finally, the photos are top quality - the colors are vibrant and I think they are as good as the lab prints.

Great little photo printer
4 Star Review   By member gg2k2k - Aug 13, 2007   

Strengths: Can be used with or without the computer. Convenient use with most camera memory cards. Pictbridge compatible. Compact, portable. Makes great pictures.

Weakness: On all of these type of printers, the cost of ink is always a concern. Battery pack is expensive.

The best thing about this printer is you do not have to go through your computer to use it. It prints high quality prints and does so quickly. So often, you just never get around to printing photos as it can be a hassle to go through the steps on a computer to do so. I find I like actually looking (and showing) great hardcopy photos again instead making everyone gather around the computer screen. If you have a digital camera, you really need one of these.

Excellent Quality Printer
4 Star Review   By member billybabe3883 - Jul 20, 2007   

Strengths: Size and Ease of use

Weakness: None that I can see

The photos printed beautifully. Really easy to use and, finally, directions that make sense. You must buy the picture mate print cartridge and ink pack at the same time because the printer itself comes with enough ink and paper for about 15 photos. No editing on printer (must use the computer for that) but reads memory cards quickly and you can specify number of copies you want. Great photo printer for the money.

PictureMate 240
4 Star Review   By member aceskull - Jul 2, 2007   

Strengths: 2.5 LCD, can fix red eye right from printer, bluetooth, FAST.

Weakness: print cartidge

Finally i got a reason to print my pictures from my digital camera, this handy device is great to quickly print on the go, I have it set up with my PC but most of the time I just insert my media card and print. Quality is great. My only complaint is the ink price and the first starter kit ink was gone in 17 pictures. But nonetheless, we are found some cheap ink online and thats working just fine. No quality loss. Printed all kinds of picture even tried the wallet size ones everything looks cool. I give this product 4 out of 5. 4 because the ink could be cheaper on all Epson products.

Excellent Product
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Fast, Great colors, easy as heck to use and portable

Weakness: cost of carts, but overall, still great.

This is my second Picturemate that sits by the side of my R800 too. This one is a tremendous improvement over the first. Colors are dead on and with the archival dye ink, just a bit wider in gamut and a little higher in gloss. If you're looking for a quick printer (40 sec. ) per print, then here's the one. Costs per print in glossy are about $.25 per. Matt, a little more at $.31-.35 or so. You can get more prints per refill just as the old one too. Can't say enough about it. Faster than my R800 and with sligthly brighter colors.

Excellent Photo Printer
5 Star Review   By member kywriter - Jan 5, 2007   

Strengths: Excellent photos, easy to use, compact, affordable, transportable, easy edit, memory cards or PC

The PhotoMate Snap is truly a snap to use. Easy-to-read instructions and uncomplicated configuration make the PhotoMate Snap a great choice for making prints. You don't have to experiment and waste paper and ink to get a handle on how to use this printer. The first print comes out great with brilliant colors and sharp, equal and probably better than some professional services. The prints only cost around 28 cents each.

GREAT LITTLE PRINTER
5 Star Review   By member Catdoc1992 - Jan 4, 2007   

Strengths: BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS, VERY EASY TO USE, QUICK PICTURE PROCESSING TIME

Weakness: NOT TO THRILLED WITH THE LOOK, BULKY

BOY, WHAT A DIFFERENCE IN PICTURE QUALITY COMPARED WITH THE HP. GO TO ANY STORE AND PRINT THE SAME PHOTO WITH EPSON AND HP AND LOOK FOR YOURSELF. THAT IS WHAT MADE MY DECISION AFTER DAYS OF RESEARCH. I ALSO LIKE THE DELUXE MODEL, BUT FOR THE PRICE, YOU CANNOT BEAT THIS PRODUCT. THE PHOTOS ARE VERY SHARP AND BOLD WITH COLOR. IT IS VERY EASY TO USE AND PRINTS QUICKLY. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE.

5 Star Review   By member smthjaz - Jan 2, 2007   

Strengths: Camera store quality prints, Easy setup. Compact size. Portability with optional battery

Weakness: Slight learning curve on first use.

Just printed my first photos off my new digital camera and the PictureMate worked beautifully. The pictures are as good as any photo lab and they are in your hand faster and as cheap as any store. I recommend this product to anyone wanting fast pictures and good results.
