Summary: I bought this printer for myself two years ago and it's still going strong. I recently bought one for my daughter for Christmas here at Amazon and it was only $68 with free shipping. I looked today and the price is back up over $300. I don't know if I got a great deal or if Amazon screwed up.
Summary: If you take lots of Photos, this is a must hsve item. Easy to use and loaded with features. The slideshow of our trip to Disney World (All Parks) is great to watch with this hooked up to our TV.
Pros: Great Photo Quality Pictures in both 4x6 and 5x7. Has remote and hooks up to Display (TV-Monitor) for slide show. Has onboard memory plus card slots. Worth every cent.
Cons: Wish I had more cash so I can have one, got it for my wife. Maybe I'll steal it from her, better make sure I can run fast too, she loves it also.
HP Photosmart A716 may be better but 475 is great too

Summary: I can only comment on the HP Photosmart A716 which I own. I love the 4gb of storage and the ability to edit pictures. The 475 only has 1.5 gb of storage. I am sure the 475 prints quality pictures as well.
Summary: This is really about the ink cartrige needed for this printer. Under the Product Description for the HP 97 ink cartridge, it states that the cartridge is good for over 400 pictures; it's not, it's good for between 90 and 150 pictures.
Summary: I bought this printer when it originally came out. I don't print every shot I take, so it took me 6 months to print 11 shots. That was it. An error message came on...not even their "tech" folks could help. Their fix? Take it to a local authorized repair dealer. At my cost.
Summary: I cannot recommend HP to anybody anymore. The company introduced regional coding, which means printer cartridges from one region cannot be used in another. For most this is probably not an issue, for those busily traveling around it is.
Summary: This printer looked like it had it all . All the features wanted in a stand alone, low cost per print, excellant paper & ink packaging , heck even 5x7 .... all was great until I tested if the ink was permenant. The reviews indicated ink would run with a water drop on print ....
Summary: We bought this printer thinking it would be great. We were so wrong! The first one we bought had to be returned because the screen was defective and wouldn't stay down. So we got another one and printed out a couple of pictures. After a few minutes, we thought the pictures were dry enough to handle.
Summary: I really would like to return this. The item is a discontinued printer and they don't even make the ink anymore. I called Hp and they pretty much said I was sold something that is no longer able to use..
