Summary: I shopped around and found most places were selling this same printer for $200+, so buying it from amazon for $139 with free shipping was a good deal. It's heavy and a little bulky, so be sure you have room to store it.
Summary: I have used this printer for more than one year. It works perfectly. I have printed hundreds, may-be thousands, of pages and have experienced only one paper jam. Colors are may-be not perfect for pictures, but for office work it's OK. Caution : don't replace the cartridges when the red led lights.
Summary: We printed an envelope last week, and since then have not been able to get this thing to print on letter size paper again without a jam. HP's toolbox gives instructions as to how to fix it, but to no avail. Very frustrated with product.
WHY didn't I read the HP K550 reviews before I bought?!

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.
Summary: I thought I got a good deal by paying 79$ new...wrong! It is a cool looking printer...prints fast....but does not do photo printing well at all. Each and every picture shows the lines the print head made while printing. Big mistake...I will return it immediately.
Summary: I bought this for my husband who has a home office which he uses to print mass quantities of sales brochures. It's incredibly fast, and we have had none of the problems that people have mentioned. I highly recommmend you buy the high capacity toner cartridges if you use this for a lot of printing.
