Summary: I have tried other printers like Epson, Cannon and Lexmark printer. The worst printer of them all was the Epson. Cannon and Lexmark are good, but HP in my opinion are the best for the money!! NOTE!! Always use factory ink with any printer you purchase!!
Pros: This is a great printer. I really love HP Printers. We have several other HP Printers in our home. I purchased this B8350 Printer to mainly print 13X19" photographs. It works great for that and also works great on other Photo media.
Summary: This is a seven year old printer. The drivers and software are no longer available from HP. It was a great printer in its day but its day are long gone. A printer is also a electronic and mechanical device and I was advised by the largest printer company in the world to never buy a printer that has...
Summary: I bought my printer nearly two years ago, and for the first 9 months, it ran like a dream. However, I began having some problems when I upgraded to CS2. Suddenly, the printer had no idea what to do with itself...
Summary: I have had the HP B8350 for almost a year. It was great out of the box, prints great photos and 11x17 maps within 5 minutes. However, within the past week, this product has a serious problem noted by others.
Summary: Inability to print most documents. It will print most text documents, but the moment that I try to send a picture or anything of any file size, it blinks at me for a while and then just goes back to normal. Never spits out my job.
Summary: I just bought the HP Photosmart Pro B8350 printer because it was about the only medium format (13"x 19") printer that takes advantage of HP's gray inkjet cartridges - all for a reasonable price. I had no trouble setting it up and printing out a nice test sheet. I was amazed at the results!
Summary: This is a good printer and prints very well and on large formats, well ok, medium formats 13 x 19. Others have mentioned some problems with it and I can verify most of them. Some large print files take a long time to load. It seems to print fast once loaded.
Summary: Well, i was in the market for a large format printer, just like most of you. I actually found a Brother printer for $[...] here on Amazon and wanted to see if my buddy at Bestbuy can get a deal on it. Unfortunately, Bestbuy did not carry it. He did, however recommend this from HP.
Summary: Software that runs this printer makes MSDOS look like Apple Snow Leopard. I'm presently trying to print one lousy paragraph from Text Edit. The printer has a 10 minute Hissy Fit Light Show, spits out 20 sheets of blank paper, then jams halfway through the paragraph.
Summary: I have read all the reviews of this printer. Wanted a large format printer for 13 x 19 paper. Not sure WHY this size is set for both HP and Epson?? Someone at HP might explain. No negatives for printer cost.
