Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I have seen so many reviews saying this product prints badly, but the quality is good enough. With all products, you don't expect 100% accuracy and this product is made for ease of use, you can take it anywhere.
Bad points:
I think the price of the product is the bad point, for the price you'd be either buying it as a gift or for sentimental reasons. To buy to make a profit you'd need to sell a lot of prints.
Also, pictures do not automatically rotate when you're printing, if it's a landscape picture, it will print landscape, same with portrait. And the picture isn't shrunk to fit better, the edges will cut off, especially with the traditional polaroid border fitted.

Good points:
Great looking piece of kit, nice idea.
Bad points:
Does not connect to iPhone, iPad or any other apple device. What it does connect to is not stated, nor does it say that it shouldn't work with apple on the box.

Poor show.
