Random print head warnings with only 10 hours of use.

  • Summary: Would be perfect if not for the maddening, puzzling "replace print head" warnings which come and go. Also ink is $$$.

Great photo quality .... at a cost!

  • Summary: I am happy with my HP Photosmart B8550. It does a wonderful job printing larger format photos but I feel it was a little high for the product and the unit really drinks the ink. I will use this product only for printing photos I want to frame. Thus, save my ink for important projects.

  • Summary: The cd that came with it did not include windows 7 operating system and I had to call tech and they had to help install. I have one scrapbook program that it would not work right with and after contacting them it is not the program and they told me to reinstall the printer which I can not do with cd that I have.

Great printer; awesome quality photos

patsenese, Ebay

  • Summary: I used this printer every single day and have printed thousands of photos. The quality is excellent. It does use a lot of ink though. The XL ink is better than regular but I still replace it frequently. The printer is quiet while printing, but it aligns itself after every page and that is a bit noisy. I recommend this printer highly. However, if you are printing on cardstock or magnetic photo paper, it does not always work. It jams.

Good Printer for home photogrpher

CPG161, Amazon
4 August 2011
  • Summary: This is a good printer for the amateur photographer who enjoys printing an occasional odd size picture and more of the smaller ones. I can see were a professional or a more demanding photo bug would be frustrated with the speed and print quality. But for most of us common folk it is a step up from the normal printer.

Great photos.... but ignore the low ink warnings!!!

  • Summary: I've had this HP Photosmart B8550 Inkjet Photo Printer for a few years now and am happy with it. I got it because I wanted to play around with printing my own photos -- do some editing in Photoshop; print; compare to unedited print; tinker some more with color settings etc; reprint; etc etc. All in an effort to learn more. And I also wanted to start to print out some of the thousands of digital photos I have.

  • Summary: This printer meets my expectations. I bought for its wide format to replace another more expensive wide format printer. It is faster and the quality of output is close to a 9 cartridge printer. It does lack wireless capability however.

Great Printer for just about anything!

  • Summary: I bought this printer when I was in the market for a wide format printer for my scrapbooking projects. It was extremely easy to set-up and use especially since I have had other photosmart printers in the past. The only negative thing is that it is a little noisy and it seems to eat up ink. I would strongly recommend purchasing the XL versions of the ink replacements. With all that said, the picture quality is absolutely wonderful.

Does its work.

Value-oriented Buyer, Amazon
13 February 2011
  • Summary: I needed a printer for 11x17 AutoCAD prints, so I got this one. For that purpose it was just fine. The photo color tends to be darker and dull, not as bright as my photo premium all-in-one printer. Don't know how to adjust it. For large format printer, the price is very reasonable, and it does its work.

  • Summary: I bought this printer to produce photos and it does this very well. I have not as yet used it to print any large photos however the photos that I have printed on this printer are very very good. The largest I have printed is 8 X 11.
