This is an excellent printer for the serious photographer. The images are clear, sharp, and crisp, and professional in every way, at least to my amateur eye. I am a picky amateur photographer, and I bought this printer so that I could easily print 8x10, 5x7, and 4x6 photos from my several digital cameras. This printer does the job. This is a beautifully engineered and solid piece of equipment.

Some technical issues. Beware, when the ink first prints, it smears easily, so let it dry for a few minutes--it dries quickly enough. I am happy to say that the photo download from the card reader slot (I measured it on the CF card reader--I haven't tried it for my SD cards yet) is lightning fast, as compared to my older HP printers, I guess that is the USB 2.0 that this device features. This is a welcome improvement--earlier HP printers lagged behind even cheap card readers in speed. No more.

So far my print feeds have been flawless and jam-free. You can effortlessly switch between 4x6 and 8x10 prints, and the feeds are fine. (Haven't tried 5x7s yet, but I expect no problems.) When you first take the printer out of the box it will prompt you to put paper in the printer and let it test the ink cartridges. Beware--you need to install them first. This only takes a second, and these are the most foolproof printer cartridges I have ever seen, but the printer does not tell you that the cartridges are not yet installed, at least not until you try to run the diagnostic. No big deal; I installed them, and the printer calibrated itself perfectly!

The printer installed perfectly and effortlessly the very first time. Simply insert the supplied CD and follow the instructions. Remember not to insert the (not supplied!

Verified Purchase
Pros:

Print speed is great (once it has performed it's maintenance cycle).

Dedicated tray for 4x6 photo paper.

Photo printing top notch, including great automatic refinishing options (red eye, smart focus, smart sharpness) - as good as any photo lab on the best HP paper.

Direct print from media cards, including still capture from some movie modes.

Hopeful ink cost should be better than combined cartridge models, has 6 individual carts that are ~ $10 a pop.

Cons:

Long and noisy "start up" maintenance cycle or as I call it the daily regiment. Once completed it's fairly quiet and FAST.

Slow transfer to PC from media card readers - will not replace your dedicated USB 2.0 card reader that's for sure.

HP's lovely virtual print driver...if you want to share the printer (or use it for home printing from office VPN/Remote Desktop connections) the driver needs to be manually installed on all PCs - don't bother calling HP for help on that though ;-) had to figure it out on my own.

Black and white printing ... not really black, more of a greenish grey. Oh well, it's a photo printer first.

I bought this printer a few weeks ago, and I have been delighted with the results thus far. I use the printer for some document printing, but primarily for photos. Some of the pros are: built-in image editing, support for most digital camera memory cards, USB 2.0, and individual ink cartridges.

I have to disagree with some of the issues presented by other reviewers. With regards to the "dpi issue", I too noticed the dots in some of the photos, but only when I held the photos extremely close (less than 6") to my eyes. No one looking at the photos would hold them that close, and I don't think the dots are noticeable under normal viewing conditions. Some of the other reviewers also spoke about inaccurate color rendering. I had some color issues as well when I first started using the printer, but after tweaking some of the settings, my printed colors are a dead-on match with my monitor colors. Proper color management is absolutely critical to getting accurate colors regardless of what printer you have. Whether you're working in the sRGB or AdobeRGB colorspace, this involves correctly calibrating your monitor, and correctly setting up color management in your photo editing software (I use Photoshop CS2) and printer.

The only gripe I have about the printer is that it would be nice to have larger ink-cartridges, and make them transparent so that a visual check could be done against the built in ink sensor.

I must first disclose, that this is my first in-depth experience with printing color photos in significant volume. I am using the HP Photosmart 8250 for a work project, and cost of printing is not a major issue, as my employer is demanding near photo quality.

Personally, I have always been a "gray-scale" fan for my own personal ink jet use, and if given a choice, I would use our color laser printer for printing the photo brochures that I am printing on this HP 8250 (yeah, I know....lasers do not give a real photo-like image, but at 10% of the cost.....).

So, here is my experience.....a co-worker bought this printer, and since the boss demanded "a quality product" for our advertising brochures, the laser printer I prefer using was voted off the island. My first prints on this printer were horrible! I started with regular copy paper, then bright multi-use paper, and finally Office Depot glossy presentation paper. All of these showed blurry, smeared prints, with no color definition.

I learned, by accident, that this printer wants HP brand paper. Any HP paper. I know many say they have had good results from store brand paper, but I had no luck, even after adjusting the printer settings. Even the cheapest HP multi purpose paper showed a nice photo, giving a better result than the high dollar Office Depot brochure paper. Thankfully, HP paper is not much more expensive than store brands. HP really scored a victory here -- they are ensuring, by whatever auto-sensing method this machine uses, that users will likely buy their paper.

I am printing mostly on glossy 44 lb stock, and there are some minor defects where dots are visible, or the photo shows some scaliness. However, one must look very closely to see these defects.
