Summary: I always wanted a larg format printer this is the best by cost inkjet printer. I always have HP printer for easy Mac Apple OS driver. This HP Deskjet 9650 was already setup in my Mac. Just plug and print right away. Awesome!
Summary: I am on my second HP9650. My first one gave me many years of literally trouble-free service, so I went on the hunt for another wide-format printer. I looked at the newer versions of HP wide format printers but their construction did not look as sturdy.
Summary: I bought this printer, since I needed a replacement for the same model, which I thought I had worked to death. I occaisionly need a wide format print, and have been happy with the print quality, both of which are very important to me, since I do some commercial work.
Summary: Initally the add said that the printer required a different driver for it to work in Windows 7. And they were somewhat right. When I received the printer, I loaded the recommened driver and all was ok. But I wasn't completely satisfied with the results.
Summary: I bought this so that I could print out Architectural drawings on 11X17 paper. This the printer does very well. It will also continue to function with one of its ink cartridges empty. I know that this particular printer had been well used before I bought it, yet it still works fine.
Hp does this alot, no support after a new model is out.

Summary: Today I'm reviewing the HP Deskjet 9650 wide format inkjet printer. This printer model is an old one which has been surpassed in model numbers and quality many times since it's day in the sun.
Summary: I love this printer. I have owned a lot of inkjet printers and this is one of the best. It's fast, the drivers are stable, and it has never jammed. Right now I own 3 printers, the HP 7550 (three cartridge printer), the HP 7150 (two cartridge) and the HP 9650 (wide format, two cartridge).
Summary: I talked my boss into getting this printer for me. It was around $400 at the time with tax. I been using it for about a year. I never had a chance at work to print the large format COLOR pictures.
