Summary: Great Printer! I wanted it to print on canvas and it does it! Color comes out perfect and so easy to use! Photos, canvas, watercolor paper, it does it all! If you are wanting a printer that does it all this one is for you! Buy one! You will not regret it.
Summary: Excellent photo printer. Clear crisp prints from size 4x6 all the way to 13x19. Easy to install easy to use. Rather large unit if your cramped for space. Does not like refilled cartridges-sends errors. Invest in the 564xl cartridges rather the simple 564. The XL holds more ink. Overall its a decent photo printer for the price.
Summary: The quality of the photos is excellent for the price. It allows the larger format without a lot of extra cost. It was very easy to setup and the person that uses it the most has found it very freindly for choosing paper size etc.
Summary: I am a Fine Artist and use this printer for Giclees. I have had 3 Epson printers which are considered to be the best for giclees. This large format printer is so much better. Front load paper that actually feeds itself...no more hand feeding. Quality is as good as Epson. Uses way less ink. fast and quiet Price for a large format printer can not be beat. I love this printer!!!
Summary: Great for large prints. Color and image even better than my old HP 8750. The B8550 recognizes the HP Advanced Photo paper and produces resolution and depth of color as good as any non-digital picture I have ever printed. I bought it only because the 8750, after hundreds of large print jobs, needed some repairs to the paper feeding mechanism, not worth the cost.
Summary: I have just started to use this printer. It was easy to set up, in part because I have another HP printer that works much the same way. Although the software that came with the printer didn't work for some reason, the download from the internet was very easy. I have done test prints at 4x6, 8 1/2 x 11, and 13x19. All are excellent.
Pros: Accurate Colors, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Great Contrast, Great Overall Quality, Sharp Tones & Colors, Terrific value
Summary: This printer from HP is easy to use, the ink lasts for a good while, and is cheep when compared to other printers. I have had no problems at all with the printer or anything (changing ink,etc.. And above all I'm liking the prints so far. (Have not tried the 19" x 13" as of yet.
