hp disappoints again

kkkkatie, Amazon

  • Summary: bought this because it could print up to 12 in wide and 4 ft long. The printer is constantly jamming or saying paper tray is empty when it isn't. Without exception every printing experience has been frustrating and a bad experience. That being said the worst part is the cost of ink.

good print quality, poor construction

  • Summary: If you buy this printer (or any HP Printer) make sure you get the longest extended warranty available. I am on my second B8550 printer, and it is looking like I will need a third. My 3 year extended warranty expires in November. After that I will be out of luck.

Good photo quality poor shelf life

  • Summary: When I bought this printer, I was very happy with the output quality especially for photos. I had heard it ate ink and that turned out to be very true. But I don't do a lot of printing so I could live with that in order to have large format output.

Nice photos when it wants to co-operate!

  • Summary: I can't remember when I have been sooooo frustrated with anything in the computer/printer field. I am very sorry I purchased this photoprinter. I have wasted more time, more ink, more paper than what I paid for this printer.

Big fat headache

760-2011, Ebay
15 October 2011
  • Summary: I suppose the quality of the prints is great but because more than half of the time, the printer grinds up my paper and makes more noise than a locomotive and goes as fast (rather "slow") as a snail, I am wanting to toss it out of the window-so for me, I am thinking of looking at something else.

NOISEY PRINTER.

JUDITH, Amazon
17 May 2011
  • Summary: The light color machine was a first choice. The length of the machine is longer than my previous HP. The height is good. The machine is good-looking. This machine is very noisey It functions differently than my previous HP printer which stopped making noise once the print task was finished.

this printer is just average for price range, disappointing upgrade

Military Mommy, Amazon
11 May 2010
  • Summary: This is the second dedicated photo printer I have purchased from HP. I bought it to replace a Photosmart 8250, which I just plain wore out. I print a lot of pictures for my scrapbooking hobby, and needed a printer that could print 8x11 sheets.
