To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
If your looking for one and considering dye sublimation. Just know dye sublimation ones are bigger take longer and the more moving parts can make it break faster. Also you have to buy ink separately though most paper packs come with one. If you don't want dye sub then this is the best print and one of the smallest printers in the market as of now. Not as good as dye sub but the next best thing. Also you get sticky paper that most dye sub won't give you.
I've had this printer for about a year with minimal use. As I've been using it more often now the printer keeps requesting an update over and over and over to firmware 1.1.5 almost every time I turn it on. When I check it's updated to 1.1.5 but next time I turn it on I have to update AGAIN to 1.1.5. And more than once I have wasted paper (which is NOT cheap) because it required ANOTHER update to firmware 1.1.5 before printing, (the print produced without the update is white and light yellow, so useless). No idea why the update won't save. However, no help from Canon, they list a phone number for Canon Ivy printers support but when you call for help they say support is only via their website (for a $120 device) so no answers on how to fix this ongoing bug. Now every time I use the printer I have to charge it, update it, then restart and then print, kind of defeats the whole portable selling feature of the device.
i love it so much! the pictures are the perfect wallet size or if you just want cute little pictures for your wall :) my friend pmo to it and i was not disappointed at all i was actually so thrilled. the print quality is perfect however though the picture quality is great too you just really have to be careful because if your picture somehow gets warm it might melt and the pictures do print a little dark nothing too dark of course just a tiny bit. Other than that i love it all together!
