Sagem Photo Easy 260
Sagem won the 4"x6" printer roundup last year with the previous Photo Easy 255. They accomplished this thanks to the advanced picture editing function, superior sharpness and good color quality. The 260 includes all of these good points with an additional print cost reductions from 49 to 37 cents. Luckily we again find the reframing function, panorama prints, and addition of frames. At the same time, the print rate considerably increased. Photos are now printed in one minute compared to 2 minutes 30 seconds for the previous version. Functioning noise level has also considerably been reduced.
Logically it should win this survey, because all functions have been improved. "All" doesn´t include color quality and Sagem changed it. The 260 colors are darker, too dark. Skin colors lose the natural aspect that they previously had.
A second obstacle to the victory was that Samsung has released a marvellous printer that is almost as fast, cheaper to use, much nicer from the point of view of many users, and is better for color quality...
