Summary: The photos are nice, but I am not able to print black only text if one color cartridge is out. We blow through the color cartridges very quickly and to replace them isn't horrible if it's one at a time, but to do a few at a time is pricey.
Summary: I purchased this printer a few years ago at Staples after being convinced by the sales person. The printer worked great. My family, friends and I were amazed of the quality. I was working with windows ME. Once my computer crashed, I purchased a new computer with windows "Vista.
Summary: This product was great when I first had it, but after 2 years it had a paper jam and since then problem after problem has occurred. Now it only prints green, yellow and blue. which is worthless to me. Do not buy it, it is a wasted of money.
Summary: ***Update 02-23-08: Tried to print on a #10 envelope to mail my rent. I've successfully printed on #10 envelopes with many different printers to date. The HP Photosmart 8250 is the only printer that will not print on #10 envelopes. It gives me an error that the "paper size is too small".
Summary: I have purchased this printer last year and it printed fine up until 1 month after purchase. The printer could not pick up the photo paper nor the regular paper. When I try to print something, it does not feed into the trays.
Summary: Like many others, I loved the printed quality but found the printer jammed frequently. Per HP's instructions, I cleaned the roller, worked for few pages then stopped. HP will sell a $19.95 cleaner kit, but why bother. You can't even single sheet feed it.
Summary: Had to return replacement unit as it was clear it was dropped in shipping and would not feed paper. After many hours running tests and sitting on the phone they agreed to send a 2nd replacement.
