Summary: My last printer died after 10 years (exact model). I'm not happy with the printers on the market, so someone still had one of these still in the box. I don't know why HP decided to do away with this printer, but it is excellent, prints fantastic pictures.
Summary: I couldn't believe that I could find a replacement for my old HP 8450 printer. I absolutely love it! Was able to plug it right in using the existing hook-up wiring. It was recognized and ready to go without downloading the software.
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...
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!!
Summary: I purchased this printer to replace the same one I owned previously which was damaged due to a faulty ink cartridge. The product was shipped quickly and arrived exactly as it was described. In a matter of minutes it was up and running and doing just fine.
Summary: I purchased this printer sometime in late 2004 when my old, can't even remember model, just didn't cut it anymore. I'm writing a review now because someone may end up looking to purchase a used model and the fact that I still use mine. I don't suspect my review will get too many reads.
