  • Summary: We have worked with quite a few printers over time. The 5550 is a dependable, durable printer for the money, too bad it has small, expensive ink tanks.

  • Excerpt: "Our HP DeskJet 5550 has been serving us well for quite a few number of years now. It is reasonably priced (at just over £100), delivers good quality printouts, is easy to use and is quite good looking. If you are looking for a printer just for home use, to print out school or business work or information from the internet, then this printer is ideal for you! It is quite wide so you need a fairly large space to store it and sometimes it can be quite ...
  • Pros: Affordable, Good Quality, Stylish and reliable
  • Cons: Quite wide and sometimes annoying !

  • Excerpt: "...previous one available on old HP printers. However I don’t pay for these so I am not so concerned by this.

Any question on the print leave me a note and I shall do my best to answer any questions. ...

Humble HP

trickynic..., Ciao
25 July 2004
  • Excerpt: "...thing to say about the Hp DeskJet 5550 is its 4,800 by 1,200 mode, that it's only available when printing high-resolution photos. The source images must be at least 1,200 dpi and printed on photographic paper. For other jobs with other paper types, such as Plain Paper or Transparency’s, the HP is a 1,200 by 1,200 dpi printer. The second thing is that it doesn't really matter regarding what resolution the printer can print at. Just as today's PC ...
  • Pros: Excellent Functionality In The Short Term
  • Cons: Ink's Too Expensive In The Long Term

24 February 2004
  • Excerpt: "The HP DeskJet 5550c is great value for money if you want photo quality prints. It does great prints and the colour is enhanced by the fact that it uses 6 colours to print with instead of the usual 3. I use mine to print, photos, documents, everyday text and various other things. All come out at great quality which makes this printer great value for money as far as the quality of prints goes. However the bad points are that there are definatly ...
  • Pros: Excellent quality prints (especially photos) and exceptional value for money
  • Cons: Too slow, expensive ink .

£45 for a 6" x 4"?

  • Excerpt: "...printer in this test and HP has stolen a march on the other manufacturers in terms of print quality. The 5550 produced excellent detail in all our tests on both photo and plain paper. Subtly coloured areas such as flesh tones suffered a little from too much colour without the use of the photo colour cartridge but it still rivalled output from the other printers. Text documents came out super-sharp, making it difficult to tell the difference between ...
  • Pros: photos
  • Cons: cartridges
