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: 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: 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.
Dont buy this printer if you use Adobe Photoshop!!!

Summary: This printer is hands-down the absolute worst experience I have ever had with any purchase!! It absolutely, positively does not work with Adobe Photoshop (any version). What is the use of having a pro photo printer if it is not compatible with Photoshop!!
Summary: The printer came with software that printed only a test page. I cleverly traced the problem across the web disucssion boards and downloaded new drivers from the hp site. That allowed me to print an image -- but only in normal mode.
Summary: There is an old saying "When you hit rock bottom, stop digging." HP shpuld take that advice. I have owned several HP printers, and while the hardware is (usually) very good, the software is marginal at best.
Summary: The HP B8350 has been the worst purchase I have ever made. The printer won't print anything other than a windows test page or a normal to draft quality print on small paper. I have 6 computers and not one of them can successfully print to this printer.
Summary: I think I got the bad apple. I can not print 13 x 19 prints on this printer which is the only reason I bought it. It finally printed 1 photo after 12 hours of being in a printing status. I haven't been able to print another one.
