Summary: I bought it about ten years ago when it was relatively state-of-the art. It has served me and my family well. However, with changes in technology, I bet a color laser printer would make better sense for us.
Summary: I bought this to replace a HP LaserJet printing that I was doing documents only on. I wanted a versatile printer that could also do photos and I knew HP was the best. Amazing photos are produced and you can preview, edit and print photos without a computer using the media slots and display on the unit. I only use a computer, only use HP Inks and HP paper and clean it often.
Summary: My 8450 printer is almost 9 years old, and still works perfectly, producing the best photo prints of anything I've seen outside of a professional photo lab. It is definitely the BEST printer I have ever owned. But be advised that Microsoft has been slow to provide drivers for Windows 7.
Summary: I purchased this HP 8450 Photosmart printer as I had had one for over 8 years, and it finally got tired. I did not want an all in one, and preferred this printer; I had recently purchased a good many ink cartridges -- but I knew all about this printer - how it worked, what to do if a problem - it was just a wonderful printer and I loved it; I was so pleased to find a NEW one, since they were made so long ago, and very pleased with the price and of course, the product.
Summary: We were dissaponted in this product. It was in Spanish, Print button flickered on red, CD did not work. We have used other photosmart printers with better results. Thanks again for your service.
Summary: The 8450 is the best buy for the money if you are wanting high quality photo prints. I have 3 of them in my office. Ink is a little expensive, if you look around, you can find some good deals there also. Highly recommend!!
