When it arrived it was actually pretty beat up

finagler, Amazon
12 August 2014
  • Summary: Printer was advertised as "like new". When it arrived it was actually pretty beat up. It functions OK but I think the description should have been more honest.

Good and Bad

TheWaldo "W.", Amazon
5 June 2011
  • Summary: The HP 8250 is a paradox.........it is both good and bad. It has tons of features, has excellent print speed and overall does a fair job of printing text and photos. However, I like so many others have had more than my share of problems with this unit.

Inconsisently says "out of paper" and is an ink hog but good quality

LUVS2TRAVEL, Amazon
8 November 2010
  • Summary: Does a great print job for text and photos. Dont dowload all of the software - hogs up your system. Drinks ink faster than any other riter I have owned (going back to 1995). Also, inconsistently says Out of paper - so I take the paper out and put it back in and it works.

"Ink System Failure" says it all

T. A. Curran, Amazon
1 November 2007
  • Summary: It worked well for my light-duty use for the 16 months: good quality prints, even ink coverage, fast. But last June I got my first "ink system failure" error message. I was able to clear it with about 4 hours of effort (using a patch downloadable from the HP website).

Problem with Borders

AverageGuyShopper, Amazon
30 September 2006
  • Summary: This printer literally sits on the same shelf as an Epson 3810 and Canon ip6600D. I also have a Epson RX500 somewhere else. So, I'm making direct comparisons here. The picture output, color, sharpness, contrast, etc. is outstanding.

Good quality printing....but...

Bob Heavenswell, Amazon
6 June 2006
  • Summary: This printer does pretty nice photos and every day printouts. Either way, we don't print a lot, but have been satisfied with the quality. The problem is the constant "Device Maintenance" that seems to run after almost every two or three pages/photos and every time we reboot the computer.

Print quality good (with HP paper), but ink expensive!

Greg Krebs, Amazon
28 February 2006
  • Summary: I must first disclose, that this is my first in-depth experience with printing color photos in significant volume. I am using the HP Photosmart 8250 for a work project, and cost of printing is not a major issue, as my employer is demanding near photo quality.

Ink system malfunction

JR, Amazon
31 January 2006
  • Summary: Well the first 60 pictures were great, and I was pretty happy with the printer (in spite of the difficulty loading paper) Then I went to install a new ink cartridge but was instead greeted with the message "Ink system malfunction, the printer will no longer print" I contacted HP and they told me it...

exspensive printer to run

Lisa Arb, Amazon
26 December 2005
  • Summary: This is really a great printer for photos and other projects but the problem lies with the ink cartridges. They are always running out! I thought the price was amazingly cheap for all the features on the printer now I know why. Its the ink.

The new HP 8250 - A chip off Epson's block

Mr. Tennisballface, Amazon
31 August 2005
  • Summary: As one reviewer proposed about this printer, discussing how HP leads the pack and everyone else copies their technology, well ... guess what? That's about as far from the truth as possible.
