Conclusion

We'll be honest, the ability to print pictures wherever you are, considering that you're not underwater or otherwise threatening the life of the camera, is very cool. Not only can you snap a picture and within a minute have your first print to hand out to your friends, but you can save your pictures and take them home to post on facebook or what-have-you. With the lack of ink and a return of Polaroid's popular photo system in the digital age, how could you go wrong?

While this is all fine and well, we caution users who think that these pictures will be of much quality. In fact, we suspect that Polaroid may have added a filter or something similar to play on the nostalgia of we who had their cameras in the past. What does this mean for you? Well, it means 3x2 inch prints with exceptionally poor detail and color accuracy.

Don't take this review to mean that the ability to print anywhere should be diminished; it shouldn't. Still, this is not a good printer, and the biggest reason to use it is convenience, nothing more.
