Summary: We were looking for a 2nd HP Photosmart 8050 Printer because we have been satisfied with the one we've had for a couple years, and wanted to use the same print cartridges with both of the printers. We didn't want one of the space-eating printers that are so common (and relatively inexpensive) now.
better be made of money to keep this printer running!

Summary: I think the reason these printers are going so cheap on ebay is because they are really expensive to use. Don't get me wrong now, the printer works great if you can afford the ink and all the accessories.
Summary: Even if the paper tray has enough papers in it, it says "Out of paper, load paper ...". I have wasted hours on this stupid issue. Seems as if some kind of sensor does not work - what a waste of money and time (sigh...) I am not unfamiliar with techies, computers, scanners, printers etc.
Summary: I bought this for my wife so she could print high quality pictures of our new grandson. Within minutes of setting it up she was printing away. It is easy to use and frankly does as good if not better job than with professional print shops. For the price you can not go wrong with this product.
