    DNP DS820A reviews

    DS820A 8" Professional Photo Dye Sublimation Printer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING PRINTS I purchased this DYE SUB printer. It is awesome. It's the first Dye Sub printer I own but I'm very impressed with the quality prints. Also you can choose what finish goes on the print, Glossy, Luster, Matte etc. I did a large order of 500 prints my first time around and everything went incredible. It has a cutter and installation of ribbon and roll is super simple. I immediately fell in love with this printer. Thinking of getting one that prints 5x7's this one can print them but it has 1/2 inch border on each sides you need to cut the sides. Overall i got it for 8x10's and it's done an amazing job so far.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good printer, bad drivers, bad support Well, the printer itself is great, at least on Windows 7. For Windows 10, they have a driver issue that causes Windows, Lightroom or any program to freeze when accessing Printer Preferences. After contacting them, they offered me a workaround that did not work and no planned date to fix the issue, leaving me to either deal with the issue, buy Windows 7 for that computer, or return the printer. Sigh.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works amazingly well I have owned too many photo ink jet printers to count. I have also thrown out thousands of dollars in ink, after they predictably fail. This Dye sublimation printer looks like it's going to put an end to all that. So far the colors are as vivid as any of those 5 color printers. And, as long as u use the"hot folder" dnp software... The color matching and output should be uniformally excellent. Only had it for a month, but so far totally jazzed.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fast, but color profile not the best Bought this a few months ago for an event, worked well. Started to do more prints with it, and the colors aren't the greatest. I tried to do some black and whites with it and they looked blue-ish/green. Called technical support and they confirmed that this printer isn't really set up to "hit" those colors. Would return if I wasn't outside the return window. Speed, etc. great, but missed the mark on that for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, I would purchase this product again. The DS820a produces clear professional images. Although it does not come with software for Mac users, drivers are available for download. The no fuss print management is great, and the colors are spot on. The setup was nearly plug & play. Light weight with a very small foot print. The DS820a printer is ideal for event photography and every photographer should own one.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Panoramic prints not supported on Mac yet A big reason I got this printer is the panoramic 8x32" print support. Unfortunately it isn't yet supported on Mac, only Windows. The support rep said they expect to support it this year (2018) but it's January and that is a long while to wait. Otherwise I got 8x10 prints working, and the quality is great, but the lack of panoramic prints dings it 2 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great printer Needs a custom colour profile for best results, but, it's fast and has deep blacks. I'm impressed it can produce a range of finhes from gloss to matt, too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good This machine is very easy to use and its image quality is very good. I recommend it to you ...
