Summary: Made it home bouncing in the big box, but got OK. The lower paper tray in not complete, or comes from a different printer, but I happened to still have my broken printer and swapped the part. When we purchase things, we expect they to be complete. But Hey!
Summary: I absolutely love this printer. My husband and I first bought it in 2002 in Japan. When we left the country, we took this printer with us. After traveling over 7000 miles, it is still able to print paper after paper. It also prints great pictures. I still prints like new.
Summary: I've had my i550 for several years now. Works great. I like only changing ink for the colors that are used. It never refuses to print based on counting print jobs (a problem that I had with an Epson). No issues with the quality of print.
Summary: I got my i550 printer more than 3 years ago and never had any problem with it; the printing is as clear as it was from day one [maintenance helps]. Although "old tech." by today standard, I highly recommend it for home use. I will not part with mine until it dies on me. Long live the "i550".
Summary: I have read some other reviews that stated after a year or 15 months they began having problems with this printer. I have had mine for almost 2 years and no problems encountered yet; and I use it alot. I love my printer. Easy to use, easy to change individual ink cartridges.
Summary: Have had this printer about 15 months. It worked fine for the first twelve months, now out of warranty and, depite many, many attempts at changing cartridges, cleaning and re-aligning print heads, I can only get magenta to print out stripey. Driving me nuts!
Summary: It is so great! I can change one ink color at a time and if you get generic ink wells it makes it so cheap to use. It has worked well for my family and I.The pictures come out great considering it is not an exspensive printer.
Summary: Purchased this printer just over one year ago. One printer head already had to be replaced, and this printer doesn't even get daily use - certainly not heavy use. Both the yellow and red heads have ceased printing altogether - great if you live in a black and blue world.
