The best option if you want the highest-quality 4" x 6" prints on the fly.



The Epson PM 225, a fielding by Epson into the compact photo printer market, is a great pickup at its price point. While it does a spectacular job with print quality, the typical shortcomings of a compact printer rear their ugly head with a vengeance. If you simply want a printer that can give you the highest-quality 4" x 6" prints on the fly, there is no better printer for this job currently on the market than Epson PM 225.
