HiTi S400 Dazzle Compact Photo Printer Review

The S400 is on the high end of price as 4-by-6-inch dye sub printers go, but the better design and quality justify the cost.

$0.00 MSRP


Compact photo printers come in many shapes and sizes, but for the most part, all dye sublimation printers have the same basic look. Hi-Touch Imaging Technologies, a relatively new Chinese company specializing in dye sub printers, goes for a different design with its whole product line. The S400 Dazzle, a sleek, black model selling for $249, produces 4-by-6-inch prints from a PC, memory card, or camera with the use of a tethered remote control. This six-year-old company has produced a series of good quality compact and larger dye sub printers, and the S400 is among them.
