Summary: In my opinion this HP 8250 is one of the best printers that HP put out. Although I brought mine over 15 years ago and has long ago bit the dust from wearing it out I brought 3 back ups on E-bay because I love this printer. Refill ink being only $5.00 per cartridge If you can buy 2 or 3 of this printer as back ups do so...
Summary: The printer works great and it is replacing one that I have had for several years. Same exact printer. I have looked at the new HP printers and even the salesman told me I had the best one already. The only bad comment was the listing stated the ink was included, However the ink had all expired and the printer would not work without replacing the dated ink.
Summary: I work in a preschool and this printer works overtime on a daily base. I had the same printer purchased new, a few years ago and it finally wore out. I tried to replace it but was not able to find a picture printer that didn't have a fax and copier attached to it. All I need is a picture printer. Also I love the fact that it comes with seperate cartridges, so you only have to replace the color that is empty and not the whole block for one empty color.
Summary: We had one of these printers for several years and it quit working. We tried newer printers and didn't like them nearly as well. So happy to find another 8250. The seller called and offered to help if we had problems. I have never had a seller contact me before and truly appreciated the offer. It is unfortunate that HP discontinued this model. It is much cheaper to print photos than the newer models and the quality is very good. Very satisfied.
Summary: The best printer I've ever owned. I do alot of photographs and the Vivera six colored ink systme, the pics are the best. They are not making this or any printer with this ink system any longer. I have had my original 8250 printer for about 7 years and I bought this one as a back-up in case this one dies. I have talked to HP about their other printers with just the four ink system and told them they do not produce a great quality photo. Anyway, I am set for awhile!
