HP Photosmart Pro B8850

Betty E. Huffman, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: Purchased this photo printer from a business in L.A. which promised it 'like new.' It was. Even though it was shipped without the shipping block in place to protect the print head, it works perfectly. Reading previous reviews said ink was wasted when ink jets were cleaned.

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.

  • 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.

It's great!

Janette S. Thomas, Amazon
18 September 2008
  • Summary: I hesitated before purchasing this printer because it's and eight cartridge CMYK and I'm accustomed to the two cartridge RGB printer. But I bought it anyway because I needed some of the features offered by this printer. I am really glad I did.

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.

One month and gorgeous prints so far

Bruce H, Amazon
18 September 2008
  • Summary: After one month of use I am very pleased with all aspects of this printer.... haven't run enough prints to need to replace any of the 8 ink cartridges yet (~ $32 each) so can't comment on ink usage.

A serious printer for serious work

G. Ware Cornell Jr., Amazon
17 September 2008
  • Summary: The first thing that you notice about this printer is its shear size. It is not merely big; it is huge. It is actually bigger than and as heavy as my old workhorse Laserjet II. Since the late eighties printers have been lighter and smaller every year.

Superb printer for the serious photographer

Jerry Saperstein, Amazon
17 September 2008
  • Summary: This printer is designed for the photo enthusiast who wants very, very high print quality, but doesn't want to spend top dollar on higher-end models such as the HP 9180. Thus the B8850 serves, in a way, in the same role as the Bentley used to serve for the Rolls-Royce: almost the same, but not...
