EpsonPictureMate 240

 

A portable photo printer that's quite a lot cleverer than it looks

Great picture quality, useful editing features, easy to print without a PC

Daft design, cheesy presets, doesn't support every type of card

This Epson makes photo printing portable – and is quite a lot cleverer than it looks

Great photo prints and some good on-printer editing tools - shame about the looks, though

Epson PictureMate 240 review

 

Great results despite its chunky looks

Fast ; Delivers good results ; Low running costs

Odd styling ; No software

Results are good, and costs are low, but looks aren't a strong point and it could do with some software

Epson PictureMate 240 review

 

Epson's PictureMate 240 is the bulkiest portable printer in this group, but the advantage is that it's sturdily built.

The printer that thinks it's a coolbox. Low-cost compact that prints stunning photos.

Epson PictureMate 240

 

In the first of our photo-printer reviews, Canon's sophisticated Selphy CP730 demonstrates storming print quality, setting high standards for its competitors.

It's not the best-looking photo printer around, but the Epson PictureMate more than makes up for this with its strong print quality and admirable ease of use. Recommended.

Epson PictureMate 240

 

Epson's PictureMate looks a bit like a bucket but it can print great-quality snaps from a reasonable range of sources including memory cards, PC via USB, or PictBridge camera.

Portable Photographic Printing : Epson PictureMate 240 printer

 

Having taken the photographs, why wait to see the printed results when portable printers are available.

While a look-alike lunch box might not top your list of preferred equipment when considering your photographic needs - stranger things have happened. When you realise that this particular lunch box is really a portable printer that provides photo-lab...

Epson PictureMate PM240

 

This is a 15x10cm photo printer, however it is very unlikely to be confused with any other manufacturers product on looks as it is certainly very distinctive in appearance.

Perhaps if I called the ruggedised that would best describe the look, it is gun metal grey and looks exactly like a solid metal box and because of this it weights around 2.6kilos. This would increase if you had the optional battery pack to allow you...

Epson PictureMate PM240

 

This compact inkjet printer gives nice results.....

Good image quality and colour, and the print speed is quick, too. Plenty of input options

No USB cable supplied and the price-per-print is still a touch high

The Epson PM240 costs a little more than some compact printers, but the image quality is good and ultimately it's a case of 'getting what you pay for'. It's a shame Epson can't throw in a USB cable for the money, but as the PM240 is really designed as...

Epson Picturemate Snap PM240 Printer

 

With a 2.5-inch color screen and excellent in-printer photo editing, the $200 (as of 11/3/2006) PictureMate Snap PM240 is one of three new models in a newly revamped portable snapshot printer line from Epson. It joins the more-basic PictureMate Pal...

Good value prints ; Extensive in-printer editing

Narrow banding on prints ; Inconsistent quality

The Snap comes with Arcsoft PhotoImpression 5 software, which lets you organize and edit your photos in addition to printing them from your PC. Epson's colorful documentation includes a Start Here poster and an illustrated Basics booklet that gets you...
