    Is anyone using a Hi-Touch PhotoShuttle dye-sub printer? I've only come
    across a few reviews on this printer and they all seem pretty good. I don't
    need a stand-alone printer since I intend to only print from PhotoShop (so
    I'm guessing that the major difference between the PhotoShuttle and
    Hi-Touch's more expensive dye-subs is the standalone, multi-media reading
    and docking features which I don't need.). Any comments good or bad are
    appreciated.

    It's not bad. It's pretty quick. In comparison I find the colors a bit
    dull and the images soft, but the prints sell. Supplies work out to
    $0.54 a print last time I worked it out.
    It is very dust sensitive. Using it ouside on a dusty day is a big
    no-no. If there is dust on the paper or in the air as it is printing
    you will get a flair of the dye color. Pretty nasty. Cleaning kit is
    overpriced and very ineffectual. If you get it make sure you put it in
    a plastic bag when you are not using it; keep it clean or you will
    waste a lot of prints trying to get it clean again.
