HP Photosmart 8450 Photo Printer

PC Magazine
22 February 2008
  • Conclusion: The HP Photosmart 8450 Photo Printer is faster than most ink jets for business applications and offers excellent photo quality with eight-color printing. Kiosk-style features for direct printing let you preview pictures on the 2.5-inch color LCD, crop them, remove red-eye, sharpen images, and more.
  • Pros: Excellent photo output. LCD for previewing photos. Kiosk-style direct-print features include cropping, sharpening, and more. Ethernet connection.
  • Cons: Graphics show banding in default mode. Plain-paper pages with nearly full coverage tend to curl.

  • Summary: The HP Photosmart 8450 is a very easy to use and well-made 8-colour inkjet printer that delivers great image quality, producing fantastic colour and black and white prints straight out of the box. HP's ICC profiles seem to be extremely accurate - there is no need to spend endless amounts of time or money on profiling to obtain accurate prints with the HP Photosmart 8450 (at least on HP's own range of papers).

HP PhotoSmart 8450 review

  • Excerpt: These days, you can get a decent inkjet photo printer for around eighty pounds. So why pay more than two hundred quid for one? Well, most budget photo inkjets have five or six colours of ink (cyan, magenta, yellow and black, plus pale versions of cyan and magenta). HP's PhotoSmart 8450 has eight, including two shades of grey. These extra inks allow the printer to reproduce with greater subtlety the graduations between different shades and colours.

  • Excerpt: Printers such as Epson's PictureMate (see p43) are a godsend if all you want to do is quickly knock out a few snaps, and don't want to muck about with your computer. Such printers are limited to postcard-sized prints, which may mean extra investment. Enter the Photosmart 8450 from HP.

  • Excerpt: Dedicated photo printers such as those in last issue's Labs (issue 21) are excellent if all you want to do is print 6 x 4in snaps, while more traditional printers offer greater flexibility without the convenience that standalone devices can provide. Enter the Photosmart 8450 from HP, which brings both together into a single unit, marrying flexibility with ease of use.

  • Excerpt: Kvalitetsmessig har HP stort sett gjort en bra jobb. Det gråblå plastchassiset er i solid utføring - men som på andre fotoskrivere er den utfellbare mottageren for ark litt svak.
