This Epson PictureMate PM-400 photo printer can make beautiful snapshots in two different sizes, but between the cost of the machine itself and the cost of ink per page (not to mention high-end photo paper), this quality and convenience aren’t cheap, but if that’s what you want, it might be worth it. This Epson series is small for printers but large for snapshot printers. One reason it’s slightly larger than some of its competitors is that it supports 5×7-inch paper in addition to standard 4×6-inch media sizes. It’s 9.8 inches wide, 6.8 inches front and back, 3.3 inches high when folded, weighs only 4 pounds, and is easy to carry, but because there is no battery, it must also use a power cord. When printing, the printer extends to 9.8 x 15.1 x 7.9 (wide x deep x high). In any case, most of my 4×6-inch photos take less than 50 seconds, while 5×7-inch photos take less than 60 seconds, although printing from my smartphone is slow. The print quality is quite good while respecting the quality of the image file itself. In most cases, photos of the Epson PictureMate PM-400 look very much like digital originals. The print path extends from the rear of the printer to the front, from the 20-page (photo-paper) feed tray loaded into the chassis, and the printed page is placed on the desktop. In addition to printing with a PC, you can also print using an SD card or USB storage drive, as well as PictBridge, to print directly from a digital camera, all of which can be PC-free with the printer’s 2.7-inch color display. Other connectivity options include Wi-Fi, which connects directly to a single PC, and Wi-Fi Direct via USB, but lacks near-field communication or NFC for touch-to-print functionality. But keep in mind that in order for the Epson PictureMate PM-400 to be able to access some of these and other mobile connectivity options, it must be connected to the Internet. Internet access is only available via Wi-Fi. Obviously, these types of printers are designed primarily for low technology. The goal is to print photos as easy as possible – convenient, not frugal. From this point of view, this is a great little photo printer.
