Don't waste your time or money

Stanley B. Dow, Amazon

  • Summary: The negative reviews are accurate. I bought this thing based on good reviews here and it's been nothing but trouble. The paper jams and won't feed. It sucked the 4X6 inch tray in and wouldn't release it. I had to rip it out to get it to work again. The colors are almost always off...don't buy it! Mine is headed for freecycle with about $150.00 worth of ink!! I bought it in 2010 but used it very little.

EXPENSIVE, USELESS and VERY annoying printer!!

Gisela Baurmann "eudorina", Amazon

  • Summary: HP Photosmart B8550 Inkjet Photo Printer (Electronics) I bought the HP B8550 printer after having used an Epson Stylus Photo 1280 for 6 years. I need an 13x19" printer for photos, renderings and line drawings, and also for some black and white documents. I bought the printer because it does not use as much desk space as its equivalent model from Epson. I VERY much regret this!

Most problematic printer I have ever owned

Reader from New England, Amazon
13 May 2011
  • Summary: I was a huge fan of HP printers: I own a DesignJet 500 (prints on 24" wide rolls) and still think it the greatest gift to a small design business. This HP printer was supposed to deal with correspondence, printing photos and client budgets on larger sheets. It has had so many issues I have finally thrown the towel in and will order a Canon Pixma 9000. Among the problems: - going through endless gyrations for the simplest print job.

Would not recommend the HP Photosmart B8550 Inkjet Photo Printer

Sherrie Fornoff, Amazon
17 February 2011
  • Summary: I spent a significant amount of time searching for a printer that would provide good quality photos. After reading numerous reviews, I thought I made a good decision in purchasing the HP Photosmart B8550 Inkjet Photo Printer. Boy, was I wrong...! I purchased the HP Photosmart B8550 Inkjet Photo Printer on February 2009 thorugh the Amazon.com website. The company that actually shipped the product was Beach Audio.

Don't Buy

Lesli Kenreich, Amazon

  • Summary: I had an old HP printer that I loved it and only got a new one because I couldn't get parts for my old one. I bought this printer with high hopes and lots of research. What I found was a printer difficult to use. It was hard to switch for photo printing and regular printing. Then after about 3 sets of cartridges and 8 months of age , it stopped printing completely. I called HP, if you can find a phone number and a human, lots of luck. I got little or no help.

Prints are RED/MAGENTA and DARK

Katie Jane, Amazon

  • Summary: i got this printer for a steal a year ago for $115. I had a Canon pixma iP5000 for about 5 years and it was just dying a slow death and needed to be replaced. It had gone above and beyond my expectations, so I had no qualms about putting it to rest. I really wanted a large-format, and I saw this deal and snapped it up. yes, it's big. yes, it's loud. but I can deal with that. What I can't deal with is prints that aren't at ALL close to what I'm seeing onscreen.

Don't do it!

Jessica Ka Carleton, Amazon
27 October 2010
  • Summary: I got this printer with some credit card points through a giftcard to Staples. It's huge, that's for sure. It prints decent photos, but I was never sure that they were as good as my old Canon printer. It eats ink. Maybe they all do, but I felt like I replaced cartridges much more frequently than I did with my older printer (which also had the different colors individually, etc). It doesn't do a good job of feeding paper..
