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...
Summary: This is a review of customer service for purchase of this excellent printer. Wow, do I have bad timing. I purchased this item for ~$250 and was satisfied until --- in less than two weeks after buying (Oct 27 2009 to Nov 2 2009) the price dropped to ~$140!
Great photo printer for the amateur to the enthusiast

Summary: The HP B8550 is my first Photo Printer; I'm more of an amateur, with a passing interest in photography. I print out the occasional 8x10", but more often, buy my 4x6" prints from Adorama or Shutterfly. The B8550 is probably overkill for my needs, but it's nice to have a printer of this capability.
Summary: I am very pleased with this printer. It prints exceptionally good photographs. I would have perferred it in black. I checked back later and it was 20 dollars less a week later. Overall I am pleased with the printer.
Summary: This prints great for an entry level printer. The only down fall is that it takes time to think and process the next image. Overall, it's a good printer and gives the option to print a 13x19 which is awesome!
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.
