Summary: This printer was intended to replace a similar battery powered HP printer I had previously. Unfortunately, it worked for 2-3 weeks, then I started having problems. I will never buy another HP printer again.
Summary: I am very happy with this printer which I have used for over one year. It has outlasted by regular desktop printer which is saying a lot considering it is a portable printer and subject to some expected abuse while traveling.
Summary: The 450 CBi is a great printer out of the box. Unfortunately, the paper feed mechanism becomes [..] over time, and after a couple of years the printer becomes virtually unusable. It's also not nearly as durable as the old 350 series - an essential if you intend to use it as a MOBILE printer.
Summary: I absolutely loved the printer HP 450 when it was working, perfect printing. After a while the paper gets jammed and then it gradually stops working. I tried to get it repaired - still didn't work. Then I looked on the internet and there are lots of people saying the same as me. The paper feed gets jammed its all very frustrating. So I have purchased CanoniP90 from Amazon it's good but not as good as as the HP when it worked well.
Summary: I got a new laptop this year, and it came with a free Dell Printer/Scanner/Copier thing, which I was pretty excited about, but it turned out it was HUGE. Took up waaaaay too much desk space in my already cramped dorm room, so at a friend's recommendation I got the HP 450 CBi. It's amazing. First reason it's amazing is that for day-to-day printing it is just as good, if not a little better, than any other HP inkjet I've ever had, and I've had quite a few.
Summary: I bought this printer to go with my HP Pavilion ze5200 laptop the summer before heading off to college. I knew that in college, I'd be mobile and on the run, so I was looking for a good quality printer that was small enough to fit in a dorm, but wouldn't crap out on me as I was printing a ten page paper half an hour before it was due. It's been about nine months since I bought the 450Cbi, and I've had a really good experience.
Summary: I heavily use the HP 450CBi daily. Usually print 75 to 100 pages of Docs per day. Battery life is good. Print quality is good. Print speed is acceptable for a portable. Durability is questionable. I keep it clean and in its own protective case. I am on my THIRD HP450CBi printer in 9 months! Paper jambs, multiple sheets feeding, print carriage movement obstructed.
