Fix it! Don't throw it out!

A. Thorp, Amazon
19 August 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this printer new a couple of years ago, and was generally very satisfied with it. UNTIL, it started developing printhead problems. Despite all the troubleshooting information that HP provides with its Toolbox, and after many hours of work, I was unable to restore the printer to normal operating function unless I purchased a very expensive printhead. So I did it, ONCE. And it worked fine for a few weeks but then failed again.

hp 550

heritage503, Ebay

  • Summary: i believe the printer is a excellent one. So good this is my second one. The first lasted for a long time and I got plenty of use from it. Unfortunately this printer has been nothing but trouble. I do believe that there are lemons of every product out there and I got one.

Decent Quality

Isis A. Sanchez "uscqt", Amazon
27 September 2007
  • Summary: I've had this printer for over a week now and it hasn't jammed or anything. I did notice that sometimes there is black/yellow smearing from the printheads. I expected better quality, but overall, it's decent for the cost per black printed page; what is it--like 1.5 cents??? Can't complain.

Frequent jammer

Elizabeth Rothamel "Lisa", Amazon
27 March 2007
  • 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.

Think twice before buying

J. Boyd, Amazon
25 November 2005
  • Summary: The K550 is a close cousin to the 2230 which it replaced (at least in my home) and the 2000C and 855C before that (both of which I owned and used for several years each). The 2000C still is my favorite -- best built and by far the most economical with ink. The 2000C got twice as many pages per cartridge as the 2230 which followed, and if initial results are an indicator, the 2230 gets nearly 2X pages/cartridge as the 2230. There's clearly a trend, and its heading south.

Na ja

  • Summary: Das Gerät hat einige Gebrauchsspuren, was mich nicht weiter gestört hat. Was mir nicht gefallen hat: Vor Versand sind alle Patronen und Druckknöpfe ausgebaut worden. Die Druckknöpfe haben dies nicht gut überstanden, denn der Drucker lief nach 2 Wochen nicht mehr. Jetzt muß ich erst sehen, wo ich Druckknöpfe auftreiben kann, und hoffen daß nicht mehr fehlt. In den ersten beiden Wochen war ich aber zufrieden.

De grandes qualités et de gros défauts

jo.indien, Ciao
26 September 2007
  • Summary: Je crois que cette imprimante va voir s'affronter détracteurs et aficionados. Car de grandes qualités et de gros défauts! Pour les qualités: d'abord la vitesse d'impression. Je n'ai jamais utilisé une Jet d'encre aussi rapide. Les cartouches d'encres sont de grosses capacité (la noire est un véritable réservoir), ce qui en fait une machine très économique. Malheureusement j'ai de gros soucis avec.
  • Pros: Vitesse et économie
  • Cons: Peu pratique, fiabilité

Viel Platz

Juleli, Amazon
25 April 2006
  • Summary: Seit einigen Monaten steht der Drucker auf unserem Schreibtisch. Der Platz, den dieser wegnimmt, spricht eindeutig nicht für ihn. Dafür kann der Drucker damit punkten, dass jede Farbe einzeln ausgetauscht werden kann, was für uns auch eindeutig ein wichtiges Kaufkriterium war. Ebenso war die Freude groß, als wir gesehen haben, dass wir ihn selbst an und aus schalten können und er nicht immer still und leise mitlaufen muss, bloß weil wir den PC anstellen.
