DPNow Reviews Epson PictureMate 290 Printer: Good But…

Epson PictureMate 290 Portable Photo Printer

DPNow.com’s Ian Burley writes, “The Epson PictureMate 290 is a very capable 6×4 printer that produces very good quality prints quickly and cheaply. It’s specifically aimed at customers who either prefer not to use a PC for picture archiving or who may not have a PC at all and if you fall in to that category we can heartily recommend the PM 290.”

However, the inclusion of the optical drive almost doubles the price, so if you don’t need this facility, we encourage you to consider the PM 260 model instead.”

The PictureMate 290 is a $200 portable photo printer that can print a 4×6 photo in just 37 seconds. It also features a good-sized 3.6-inch color screen for previewing photos.
