Good Choice for Amatures

Daniel M., Newegg
6 August 2008
  • Pros: Pigment based inks. HP quality product. Amazing color gamut. High capacity carts. Tons more pluses. Works great on a Mac. This is a poor-mans 9180.
  • Cons: I really would have liked to have a lcd panel on the front. As with all inkjet's the ink is pretty pricey. I ended up buying elsewhere cuz they had free shipping.

Print like a pro!

Hope T., Amazon

  • 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.

Great printer, but very large

Rick Brenner, Amazon
5 August 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.

Love it

John Bowes, Amazon
5 August 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.

Great Printer

Terri, Amazon
5 August 2008
  • Summary: I'm happy with this printer. I wanted a 13 x 19" printer and this one fit my budget. For me it's a long over do upgrade from my smaller HP 8250, which still prints beautiful prints. I've had no problems using it with Vista...I had it up and running in no time.

Great Photo printer!

M. Lambregts, Amazon
5 August 2008
  • Summary: This printer is awesome for making clear, vibrant prints up to 13 x 19. It's easy to set up. It is large--you'll need a big space for it and noisy, but the pictures are worth it. I had a Canon 9900i previously and this printer does at least as good if not better job.

Great Print quality

G. Nursery, Amazon
5 August 2008
  • Summary: This is the third HP photo printer I have owned and the second large format printer. I love HP's print quality. It is always fabulous. When compared side by side with Epson and Cannon (which I did) HP always comes out on top. That being said.

Takes some effort with Vista

Nan, Amazon
5 August 2008
  • Summary: After receiving this printer, it took some time to hook it up to my computer running Vista. Apparently HP and Vista have some serious compatibility issues. But, in the case of the B8850 it can be done by changing a registry value, and the instructions are on HP's website.

Beautiful prints initially

Michael Birman, Amazon
5 August 2008
  • Summary: This was my third HP printer. My previous experience with HP printers was quite good with an excellent print quality, easy availability of inks (always a concern) and solid construction that rarely displayed problems.
