HP Photosmart 8450 Photo Printer

 

The HP Photosmart 8450 prints with eight colors and fixes problems in photos without a computer.

Excellent photo output. LCD for previewing photos. Kiosk-style direct-print features include cropping, sharpening, and more. Ethernet connection.

Graphics show banding in default mode. Plain-paper pages with nearly full coverage tend to curl.

HP Photosmart 8450

 

(yes the model numbers seem wrong, but they are right). They both have a 4800x1200 dpi resolution, the Vivera inks which are very long lasting, and is still very fast at printing due to a new print engine. HP no longer uses the old tricolor (red,...

Hewlett-Packard Photosmart 8450

 

Fast printing in both black and colour

Its colour printing is more expensive than competitors

If blistering print speed is crucial--particularly if you're looking to make regular use of the lower quality settings--you'll find this a stunning printer.

HP Photosmart 8450

 

HP's Photosmart 8450 impresses Simon Williams for its range of features and the superb quality output from its eight colour ink system.

Aside from having to replace ink cartridges more often than you might have expected, there’s very little to fault with this printer. It's easy to use, versatile, and produces results which really are out of the ordinary.
