    Comments about HiTi P510K 6" Roll-Type Photo Printer Kiosk (US/CA Version):

    After spending a day with the HiTi P510K, I can say that this machine is just what I was looking for: Not too bulky, easy to use and produces great quality prints.Because I am using the 5x7 roll of paper, it was very difficult figuring out how to get started. I received a "cannot register ink ribbon type" over and over again. After a couple hours of internet research and digging deep into online forums, I figured out you have to go into the VERY SECRET menu and tell the machine what type of paper you are printing on. I wish this was way more apparent in the instructions.Other than that, I really like this machine. Would definitely recommend!

      Comments about HiTi P510K 6" Roll-Type Photo Printer Kiosk (US/CA Version):

      I bought this printer to provide my customers a self-service photo printer for standard size prints. It was easy to set up and so far, works as advertised. Print quality is as good as I have seen on other dye sublimation printers. I especially like the bluetooth capability for our smart phone customers who want to download pictures to printer and get immediate results. The adjustable angle screen has an easy-to-follow menu that effectively walks you through the print process. As it is brand new, I don't have any negative comments at this time. I would recommend it to others for similar environments as ours.

      Comments about HiTi P510K 6" Roll-Type Photo Printer Kiosk (US/CA Version):

      I bought this printer on strong recommendations from 2 sources. I also purchased 2 cases Hiti of 6"x8" paper since the 6"x9" paper had been discontinued. Upon installing the paper and the ribbon, an error message appeared on the screen saying the the paper was not recognized. Long story short, this printer needs the firmware updated immediately out of the box so that it will recognize 6"x8" consumables. I tried calling Hiti, but since it was a Sunday, they were closed. Fortunately, I called B&H. Between the sales person that I was on the phone with for over an hour, and information I found on Hiti's site for firmware updates, I was able to get the printer to work. If you already have this printer, and you are on a location selling prints, you need to update the firmware before you switch to the 6"x8" ribbon and paper. If you don't, you'll have no idea why your printer all of a sudden is not working.

      Comments about HiTi P510K 6" Roll-Type Photo Printer Kiosk (US/CA Version):

      Very easy to use. Nice prints. Good price for what you get.

      Improvements would be easier loading of templates and either a custom case of a screen proctor. It is designed to be moved from event to event and this would help.

      Still worth buying.

      Comments about HiTi P510K 6" Roll-Type Photo Printer Kiosk (US/CA Version):

      I've used this printer now for about two years, and it has not let me down. I've done events where people wanted their pictures on the spot, and the ink jets could not keep up with the demand at the time. This Hiti printed up beautifully, and paper & ink was more cost effective than using an ink jet. Because of the speed which it printed, I was able to do more events. In the process of getting a second one. This is a Great Product. The only problem I have is that when the season is high, the stores can't keep enough of the paper & ink.

      Comments about HiTi P510K 6" Roll-Type Photo Printer Kiosk (US/CA Version):

      I use this product as a event printer and have used in on a few occasions since buying it a couple weeks ago. The print quality is great and the photos turn around is very quick and easy to understand. The only problem I have with it is that the pictures curl after they have been printed due to being on a roll instead of being flat. If going to put in a frame or scrap book then the curling would not be a problem. The reason I gave it only four stars is because of the curling issue otherwise than that it is a great product

              use this as a portable printer to provide 5x7 prints on the spot at special events
              very portable, easy set up, what you see on the screen is accurately reproduced in the print
              I've used it at one large event and a few small, only con so far is you can't bring up a picture full screen so everything is just a bit bigger then thumbnail size
