No battery, Single ink cartridge good for 50 prints before replacing
Soso print quality, Slow print speed, High cost per print, No battery option, Glitchridden software
The touchscreen is not always responsive and can be difficult to use.
No battery option, Orangey flesh tones
Inaccurate color when printing from SD-card slot; slow; consumables are expensive; some install glitches in our tests
Speed is acceptable but slow. Messages on the printer LCD and the approach to printing from a computer can be confusing.
No battery option; orangey flesh tones.
No battery, so be on the lookout for outlets "in the field." Prints only on pricey photo paper.
