The Epson PictureMate Dash may look like a glorified lunch box, but this printer delivers where it counts. Photos (4 by 6 inches only) came out quickly in tests, averaging 1.5 pages per minute. The palette was universally pale, but as a result images showed more detail in dark areas. The cost per print is an inexpensive 26 cents (based on the $40 PictureMate Print Pack for 150 4-by-6-inch glossy photos). The large LCD makes viewing and manipulating photos easy. Unusual options include changing color photos to monochrome or sepia tones, as well as adding decorations, preset phrases, or dialogue bubbles. Epson bundles ArcSoft PhotoImpression, a full-featured application for managing and manipulating photos.
