Summary: I've only been using my new HP 3550 for a day, and so far I'm pleased. It seems to be a great bang for the buck. My only complaint in the power cord. Most products are now shipping with the transformer on the center of the cord, so the wall plug is small. This printer still has a HUGE wall wart, with the plug attached. Power outlet real-estate is scarce at my computer desk, and the huge plug does't help things.
Summary: My former printer was HP's 820C DeskJet, now discontinued. So I wasn't prepared for the noise made by the 3550 or the fact that it's a lot slower. But I was very pleased with how easily it was set up! Print quality is superb for a machine this inexpensive and I've experienced no paper jams.
Summary: It is simple and works well, the one weakness I have found is they use a plastic gear affixed to a metal shaft that will spin on the shaft and destroy the serrated connection, I was able to fix the problem by glueing the gear to the shaft, I have now purchased a back up and will glue the gear prior to use, otherwise it has served its purpose well.
Summary: good printer for massive jobs. Print color quality not the best, 1200 dpi would be nicer. I like it so far but it is used and so far what i have printed in three days is very nice. no jams. easy menu navigation.
Summary: I think that this is a great printer for the Home Office, and maybe the Small Office user. It prints nice, crisp color and black/white prints, and is very fast once it warms up. I think that I was getting about 15-20 pages a minute. However, this is not a photo printer, so if your looking to make quality photo prints, this is not the printer for you.
Summary: Printer is very large, make sure you have adequate space. Color printing is very good. B&W printing is also good, but considerably slower than B&W only laser printer. But good product overall.
Summary: I bought this printer during my freshman year of college, wanting a reasonably cheap printer to avoid having to constantly trek to the library to print papers. While my friends who have bought similar HP models have had problems with them, I've found this printer to be reliable and suitable for my needs.
Summary: Bought this printer because ink for the lexmark was about the same price as this printer. Have been very happy with it. Faster print speed than the lexmark, vibrant colors, and installed like a dream. Plug and go. You just can't go wrong with this one. Would have got 5 stars if it came with a usb cable, had to buy seperately.
Excerpt: In the past 18 Months i have bought around 25 of these and installed them at various sites. Yeh sure you get the little niggly problems, such as paper jams and paper mis-alignments and stuff but other than that an ace printer!! I even managed to throw one across the floor!!! Picked it up, put it back together and it still worked. I was amazed!!! They are relatively cheap to run and if you bought them at the right time HP were giving you £200 cashback.
Excerpt: Well what can i say i bought this printer when i was out looking for something to replace my old knackered printer. I was looking for something cheap but which would allow me to print basic documents and graphics. Well im pleased to say i found those features in this printer and more! The printer is quite fast and can print a handful of black and white documents within a reasonable time.
