Eats ink like crazy. I refill my cartridges using kit but ...

Victoria J. Jones, Amazon
13 November 2014
  • Summary: Do not purchase this printer. Eats ink like crazy. I refill my cartridges using kit but printer won't recognize them. Worked ok at first but after a year it started clogging and spitting out blank pages.

A very high priced paper weight

M. Moyer, Amazon
25 January 2013
  • Summary: Against my judgement, my avid scrapbooking wife purchased this printer. First off, this printer drinks the ink like a drunken sailor. On top of this, we started experiencing random shutdowns when printing documents.

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...!

Might be OK if it works

Judy L., Amazon
6 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this printer directly from HP because they had a good price at the time. The setup and installation went fine, and it seemed to work fine. Since this isn't the kind of printer that you would use on a daily basis, I didn't actually try to print an image until after I had it for 4 weeks.

HP must have put a spell on us.

R.T. Lindsey, Amazon
4 December 2010
  • Summary: First, I should state that we bought our HP8550 from a source other than Amazon, so nothing herein reflects in any way on Amazon. In fact, we've had only good experience with Amazon itself.

Prints are RED/MAGENTA and DARK

Katie Jane, Amazon
13 November 2010
  • 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.

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.

This printer will eat your wallet

  • Summary: I have owned this printer for about 1 yr and I cannot recommend it in any way. Flaws: - it goes through ink like crazy. I spend more on ink than I do on gas. Seriously- stay away from this printer.

IF YOU INSTALL THE INK IN IT, YOU'RE KEEPING IT WHETHER IT WORKS OR NOT!!

J. Good, Amazon

  • Summary: This printer did not work from the start. The 8 1/2 x 11 paper feed jams every time. After contacting HP directly they said it was defective and they would replace it with a refurbished one!!

Send all your money to HP

Clarke B., Newegg
1 March 2010
  • Summary: HP's response: I would like to inform you that HP does not recommend non-HP media. I would request you to use HP recommended papers.
  • Pros: Nice color photographs, when it will print
  • Cons: You can expect this printer to take 40 minutes to print ten 4x6 photographs. It will require you to stand over it the entire time pressing the OK button every 90 seconds. It will claim it is out of ink when it clearly has plenty of HP ink. It will claim the photographic paper is not glossy. After...
