WHY didn't I read the HP K550 reviews before I bought?!
6 May 2006
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: This printer is fast and gives good quality printing when it works. It has very serious paper feeding issues. It it is very prone to jams and even more to double feeds. These issues have been unsolvable. It is awkard to load paper and even more so if you wish to print envelopes.
Summary: Was sold as brand new unused...had over 5000 prints on it with the print heads and ink expired in 2008 and empty on 2 colors of ink the printer would not print or function because everything was expired!!!!
Summary: This pathetic printer wend bad after just 20 pages. First the black color came out only in stripes, then disappeared completely. Like a fool, I spent $35+ to buy a new black ink cartridge (which won't fit a better printer), only to find that the real problem was internal and could not be fixed.

Summary: My experience with this printer pretty much mirrors the experiences of the other negative reviews. My major complaint is that it will misprint on 2-3 sheets of paper instead of one. When printing Quickbboks checks, instead of putting several checks in the tray, I have to feed one check at a time.
Summary: I purchased 3 of these printers for our company. They all have different problems. One printer I only used a couple of days before it stopped working. Bottom line, save yourself lots of headaches and seek something else.
ridiculous print ink capacity and continuously misfeeds

Summary: This is the worst printer I have ever owned and I have owned more than 20 over the years. I bought this one because the sales rep told me it was high volume and very fast. I was led to believe that the ink cartridges would last at least twice as long as the cheaper models and since I do a lot of...
