Sony DPP-EX50

The Good Fairly inexpensive; excellent print quality; fast; can view and edit photos on your TV.

The Bad Design isn't for everyone; can't view or edit photos on LCD; no connection between removable media drives and your computer; no paper or ink included.

The Bottom Line This snapshot photo printer makes beautiful prints for a reasonable price, but its design could use some work.

Review

Sony DPP-EX50

Review summary

The Sony DPP-EX50 belongs to the nebulous category of snapshot printers designed to roost among your home-theater components as well as your PC--the Panasonic SV-AP10 is another--so that you can share and print your photos in couch-potato comfort. It prints quite well and quite quickly, but we're not quite sold on the idea of a living-room printer, and it's far less convenient than truly portable snapshot printers such as the Canon CP-330 and the Epson PictureMate. Plus, Sony could stand to rethink some of its design decisions.
