Best HP printer I have ever owned

JENNIFER HAYES, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: I feel compelled to write a review on this printer even though I have had it for over 6 years! I've never had a single problem with this printer. In fact, when it was brand new, I ran into the cord and it pulled the printer off my counter and it fell 3 feet onto a cement floor. It got a little banged up and I thought that would be the end of it. Not true, it just keeps on putting out great prints. It is my favorite printer of all time!!

WHY didn't I read the HP K550 reviews before I bought?!

Christine Beatty, Amazon
17 August 2013
  • Summary: Unlike many of the other customers my Yellow/Black printhead worked fine when I got it. My faults with this printer is how fast it goes through the overpriced ink and printheads. The heads require frequent cleaning, which goes quickly through the ink. Also it reports "out of ink" on cartridges that clearly have a lot of ink in them. I have wasted too much time and nearly missed too many deadlines dealing with this printer's issues before I could get my pages.

  • Pros: Its got a very quick draft mode which prints very well. Also, gotta love the networking capabilities
  • Cons: It does jam from time to time but only on draft mode that I have noticed

Never Buying Another HP Printer

Another former HP customer, Amazon
13 November 2010
  • Summary: If the overall issues with this printer were not enough (and I was one of the lucky ones who has had very few technical problems with my K550)... the latest drivers are aggressively expiring HP ink cartridges that are perfectly good, relatively new and still plenty full of ink. HP Greed has taken over. I cannot afford to replace that double-sized black ink cartridge every 6 months, and I should not have to. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it.

Third One

mistermeaster, Ebay
5 October 2010
  • Summary: These printers are used at work. I bought this third one mainly to keep from having huge inventories of different print cartridges. So I paid too much for this guy but it is worth it to keep inventories of inks down. The K550 has been a good reliable model for us. Just beware when purchasing; I didn't fully understand that I was buying this without the print heads (my fault?), and they are expensive. The ink is not cheap either. But I do like the printer!!!

Non Working product

eyemech, Ebay
17 August 2010
  • Summary: Seller knows that they are selling an item which does not work. I asked in advance if it had good print heads. I was assured it did. Then told I would have needed to pay big dollars to get a working model. It says "mint" in box. That usually means it actually works and has working heads. The seller knew what he was selling and still claimed it was "mint". I would never do business with this seller again. He is a knowledgeable vendor, not a home user.

this printer is a total lemon

R. Sokol, Amazon
1 June 2010
  • Summary: From day one of owning this printer I knew I had made a big mistake. A) It is very loud. B) It consumes a lot of time making noise calibrating something, testing something, spitting out pages that aren't printed. C) When you run any of the self diagnostics, it consumes a lot of paper, ink, and time. D) The inks are expensive. E) The printheads are expensive (and why do you need to replace them? - the printheads of all my Epson printers never need any replacement).

"Very Poor Quality for an HP Product"

cleedle, CNET
7 April 2010
  • Pros: When it works the printer is a nice office printer.
  • Cons: It doesn't work. We have three of these printers that all failed within a month of installation all with the same basic failure, full color cartridges showing as empty.

Quality Printer

Stephen D. Dearden "cspiffo", Amazon
26 January 2010
  • Summary: I found this printer lounging around a Salvation army thrift store for $15. When I brought it home I noticed it was printing poorly. The driver diagnosed a bad black/yellow printhead. I orderd a new one and this thing has been printing fantastically ever since. The best $50 (uncluding printhead and black ink) I've ever spent. The only issue I have is that the paper is a little clunky to load as it is covered by the output tray.
