  • Excerpt: If you are serious about producing exhibition quality prints from your photographs, you need to consider fine art papers and that means pigment ink printing. HP was a latecomer to the fine art pigment printing game but less than two years on it now has an extensive range of pro and semi-pro pigment ink photo printers.

HP Photosmart Pro B8850 review

Techworld
19 May 2008
  • Summary: The Photosmart Pro B8850 isn't a radical shift from HP's initial entry into the pigment ink printer market. HP wisely chose to whittle the right features from the B9180 to create an affordable, entry-level printer for photographers looking for archival-quality prints. While it lacks some of the glitz of Epson's Stylus Photo R1900, the HP Photosmart Pro B8850 is a strong offering with very good print quality on most paper types and the best black-and-white printing...

15 May 2008
  • Excerpt: (1 items) The entry level of the archival-quality photo printer market is heating up right now, with the simultaneous release of Epson’s Stylus Photo R1900 ( ) and HP’s Photosmart Pro B8850. HP’s entry is a lower-priced version of the Photosmart Pro B9180 ( ), offering that model’s very good print quality and strong features (with a few intelligent omissions) at a lower price. The B8850 is a large printer, weighing nearly 40 pounds.
  • Pros: Supports thick fine-art media, Very good print quality, especially on matte and fine-art papers, Long-lasting prints on HP media, Good software utilities, Produces neutral black-and-white prints
  • Cons: Glossy prints show some bronzing, Slower than comparable photo printers

  • Excerpt: Following hot on the heels of the popular Photosmart Pro B9180 13 inch / A3 photo printer, HP has just introduced a lower price model, the B8850, that will appeal to enthusiasts who don't need all of the features of the B9180. The HP B8850 was announced last week and features exactly the same 8-colour Vivera inkset as the B9180, promising print life of more than 200 years.
