HP 8450 does all things very well

BJ from Mpls., Amazon
17 June 2013
  • 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.

Excellent but not perfect

H. Howe, Amazon

  • Summary: We have had this printer for over 20 months now and I figured that it was enough time to test it before writing about it :) When I originally went to buy a photo printer the CompUSA store that I was in had an HP Rep there for the Christmas to answer questions about their product lines. Being that I have worked on and with computers for many years we had a pretty good no-BS discussion.

HP 8450 photo printer

swsbrg, Ebay
7 July 2006
  • Summary: I like that the pictures come out really sharp and fast. The only thing that I didn't like about the product is figuring out what tray to use for 4x6 photos. I decided to buy the printer because I am a photographer and I needed a quality photo printer for on location events.

The only thing from HP I will ever buy is a printer

Riika Magnus, Amazon
24 December 2005
  • Summary: I purched the 8450xi about 6 months ago to replace an Epson 925 inkjet. I honestly am not a fan of HP, in fact I usually boycott anything they make that is why I switched to Epson years ago. After having streaking issues with the Epson I seriously looked at different manufacturers and I knew from my previous use of an HP that it never had any problems.

Great Prints, but Goes through Gray Ink Like Water

WebMartin28, Amazon
21 October 2005
  • Summary: I love this thing!! I got it for my wife for her birthday, and we both use it pretty regularly. The clarity of the pictures are no different from what you get at a photo processing center. My one complaint (which kept me from giving this a 5 star rating), is it goes through gray ink after something like 50-60 pictures. The other two cartridges are still more than half-full (or thereabouts), when the gray runs out.

Picture Only Printer

J. Walker, Amazon
22 July 2005
  • Summary: I just got this printer 3 days ago. It started out great, I was printing pictures out of my digital camera and the printer does a good job with that. Here is my problem with this printer - I went from a HP DeskJet printer where I can print regular items: envelopes, letterhead, etc. I have a printing program (Printmaster) where I have letterheads, envelopes, cards, stuff like that saved and for some reason this printer's software has caused the margins to shrink quite a...

Great pix, mongo footprint

J. Dayner "Curmudgeon", Amazon
20 July 2005
  • Summary: I've owned several printers, among them a few photo printers. The 8450 produces the best results of any of them, and it does so quickly. I expected that the printer cartridges would be expensive to replace; the three of them cost about $80. The only drawback I've found so far is the huge size of that mother; you need to reserve a couple of feet of shelf space somewhere for it. In spite of that, I'm glad I have it because the finished photos are outstanding.
