Value Comparison

From a value standpoint, it's hard to understate how convenient an inkless printer that gives you instant pictures is, but if you're looking for quality 4 x 6 prints, it's the Epson PM 225 or bust. It really depends on what you're looking for.

Detail Comparison

Though the Epson isn't exactly the best printer out there in terms of detail, it may as well be compared to the Polaroid Z340's printer, which is awful by any metric.

Usability Comparison
