  • Summary: It works with OSX but at times can be a real pain to use.....also a very fragile unit that really goes through ink.

Waste of money

Hubert Kowalski, Amazon
3 March 2005
  • Summary: Good looking printer. After warranty expired it's the only one positive thing I can tell about it. It doesn't work properly, prints have no straight vertical lines, some strange noises are coming from it, no way of printing photos. It visited service twice.

Died after warranty expired

Happy Customer "Char Char", Amazon
19 January 2005
  • Summary: I previously had a 722c HP Printer that worked like a miracle. It lasted forever. Actually it still works, but it just got too slow so I bought the 5550. It worked great initially, but just shortly after 1 year, it went nuts. All its lights would flash and nothing was working properly.

Died after warranty expired

7 January 2005
  • Summary: Printed great for a little over a year (the duration of the warranty) and then it quit and just flashed all it's lights at us. We're told by a printer repair tech that the logic board is dead.

A disappointment

Mariellen Baker, Amazon
28 May 2003
  • Summary: I purchased this printer as a 'step up' from my HP895 CXi... I wish I still had my previous printer! The 5550 is marketed as the top of the line... it uses MUCH more ink, the ink cartridges are much smaller and cost more than the 895's cartridges, and HP now has added a third cartridge, just for...

Nice printer...typical HP strategy...

Amazon
11 April 2003
  • Summary: While the reviews as far as print quality are right-on, I find it criminal that HP continues to place us on a "subscription" service for their inkjet cartridges. You void a warranty if you use refilled cartridges and you wind up paying about twenty nine a month on typical printing volumes.

Deskjet 5550 - Poor Design

Amazon
27 January 2003
  • Summary: I've always been loyal to HP, and I have owned both inkjet & laser HP printers. I was happy with my last inkjet (HP DeskJet 895cxi), so I was confident in buying another HP. Unfortunately, the DeskJet 5550 was incredibly loud, and shook so hard it rocked my heavy filing cabinet.

Disappointing HP Printer

Thomas Lagrasta "luige", Amazon
9 January 2003
  • Summary: I have owned and used HP printers for about 10 years and have always been satisfied with their quality and speed. Having moved my office to my home I knew it was time to upgrade my printer from a HP 712C to something that would print graphics and photos a little quicker.

XTOLOC, MercadoLibre
18 December 2010
  • Conclusion: DESEO SABER QUE APLICA EN EL CASO DE LA COMPRA DE ESTA IMPRESORA QUE ADQUIRI POR LOS DATOS DE LA FICHA TECNICA QUE ESTABAN EN EL ANUNCIO, RESULTADO UNA MENTIRA PARA MI, YA QUE EL VENDEDOR NO DIJO DE FORMA HONESTA COMO ESTABA LA IMPRESORA REALMENTE, EL KIT DE TRANSFERENCIA DE IMAGEN ES LA PIEZA QUE...
  • Pros: LA IMPRESORA LLEGO TAL CUAL INDICO EL VENDEDOR MAS NO EL ESTADO MENCIONADO
  • Cons: AL ABRIR LA IMPRESORA ESTABAN ROTOS 2 SEGUROS DE LA BASE DE LA MISMA, EL KIT DE TRANSFERENCIA DE IMAGEN VINO CON UN FRANJEADO QUE ME IMPIDE IMRIMIR CON CALIDAD, ESTO ME GENERA UN COSTO ADICIONAL DE 3600 PESOS MAS ENVIO MAS IVA DE LA PIEZA QUE TENGO QUE CUBRIR QUE NO TENIA CONSIDERADO EN MI PRESUP...
