I wish I'd known!

M. Conly, Amazon
7 June 2009
  • Summary: I ended up giving it away. After trying to set it up, I found, after a $39 phone call to HP, that HP stopped making this printer five years ago. I could not download the software because it was too old for my iMac's OS. Since it was out of date there was no warranty, and I could not buy an extended warranty. In addition, the machine was so old the ink was no longer usable.

The WORST printer I have ever used!

Kellie Hart, Amazon
23 April 2007
  • Summary: This printer is GARBAGE. I have used printers since 1989 and this is definitely the worst. I owned a few Epsons with no problems at all, I only upgraded as the technology improved, not because any of them were broken or didn't work.. and I think next time I will go back to an Epson. The hp is a "photo" printer, but if you put more than 3 pieces of photo paper in it at a time, it will jam and waste your paper and ink.

  • Excerpt: This printer does beautiful work. I mean REALLY beautiful prints.
  • Pros: Fantastic photos.
  • Cons: Guzzles ink like a 1952 Buick. Unreal. Plus, it only lasted 6 months.

HP Warranty Really Sucks - Beware, Should Be Zero Stars

David Davis, Amazon
4 January 2006
  • Summary: My wife purchased an HP Photosmart 8450 Printer as a Christmas present for me. I installed it and it worked perfectly for one week. Then the colors started to change. Photos had extreme amount of yellow in them, such as yellow faces and hands, no proper flesh tones. I call HP support and was told that my printer was out of warranty because the warranty starts when the printer was manufactured, not the purchase date.
