Summary: Had to replace all ink cartridges and they are expensive....after replacing ink printer won't pick the paper to feed into the machine..seems that this has been a problem with the HP 8250 printer...don't want to buy another....
Summary: Worked very well for the first year after I purchased then started throwing various "ink and paper feed" codes. Do a google for problems with 8250. That should sway you. There's speculation HP embeds these codes so that they surface after a set number of ink refills, especially if you're are using remanufactured inks.
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. This would be great as a dedicated photo printer, but has too many limitations for me. The LCD is really a dumb idea, as well as the built in card reader. I never use either.
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." This is when I began to experience difficulty. It appears that this printer is not compatible with "Vista." The program appears to have conflicts with "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.
