Good Printer

Anonymous, Newegg
14 January 2009
  • Summary: Not sure how good the "rival" Epson printer is but it has its work cut out.
  • Pros: Very nice printer. I purchased the spyder color studio to go with this so I can print exact from monitor to paper and it's flawless. Very very nice printer. Over 4,000 prints so far and not one problem.
  • Cons: Large and heavy, which isn't a bad thing, really.

  • Pros: Beautiful Photo Prints, decent speed. Love being able to print 13x19 size prints.

Customer Support

  • Summary: The 2-star rating is based upon my experience with HP's tech support for this printer, not on usage of the device. I am considering purchasing this product, and in doing pre-purchase research read a lot of reviews including a tech review in MacLife.

Great printer, but very large

Rick Brenner, Amazon
18 September 2008
  • Summary: Well made printer but is quite large and heavy so not for small office situation. Also, not cheap to operate due to cost of ink. But over all, if these are not big issues, I give it 4 stars.

Print like a pro!

Hope T., Amazon
18 September 2008
  • Summary: I'd have to say I'm really impressed by the quality of print from the HP Photosmart Pro. I've been a graphic designer for 15 years and have always struggled to match my print to what I see on my screen. I'm pleased to say that this printer gives me a great print at a nice price.

Reasons I chose this printer

Pete, Amazon
18 September 2008
  • Summary: I haven't taken delivery yet but thought I would explain why I chose the B8850. I want to print my lifetime photo collection for my family members and their descendants. So I was interested in long lasting prints.

WARNING!

Joseph Dasilva, Amazon
18 September 2008
  • Summary: This printer does not work with Photshop CS3 despite HP's sales hype...in particular it does not work with a color managed workflow (where photoshop manages the color) and that is very important to anyone using icc profiles etc.

Love it

John Bowes, Amazon
18 September 2008
  • Summary: This is my first experience with large format printing. This is impressive. After setup and some time on the learning curve, the printer is everything I wanted. Sharp, accurate, great color. The ink is expensive, but the pictures look great. A great time to get into the big picture.

Excellent printer.

Archaic Boy, Amazon
18 September 2008
  • Summary: I rarely if ever purchase technology, particularly photo or imaging related technology, that I haven't used before or seen work before. That's the case with this purchase. I like the quality of the prints it produces at a variety of different sizes.
