By Mel Irizarry on December 18, 2004
I picked the 8450 up after my Canon i950 died. I initially set it up in the kitchen so my wife could try it out. It's been 5 days now and the printer is still in the kitchen. With the media card slots and on board photo editing my wife has no need to use a computer. The red-eye removal works better than any software package I have ever used. The photos that print out are extremely close to that of dye-sublimation printers. The only cartridge that runs out the fastest is the Gray cartridge #100. The tri-color #97 and the photo color #99 are still reporting 3/4 full. This is after printing around (40) 4x6 photos and (15) 8.5 x 11 full page prints.

Definately use the HP Glossy paper. I originally printed on the leftover Canon Photo Paper Plus which was impressive. When I tried the HP Glossy paper, I was blown away by the difference. The Canon paper had a yellowish tinge to it which covered up the light pinks and blues, and the flesh tones looked a bit jaundiced. The HP paper brought out the colors as I have never seen before. Absolutely perfect right down to the subtle pinks in the flesh tones.

I purchased an HP8450 over the holidays to produce some photos as gifts. For years I worked in photography, and I consider myself a professional with professional standards. I had actually very seriously considered just getting an HP 7960 printer as they are now clearanced in the US and available for about $150. The 8450 still hovers at a premium price of around $250, though I bought mine on sale for $220. In the past I've owned lower-end HPs, two Epsons which, due to their heads clogging after two months, I vowed never to buy Epson again, despite some excellent output while they're working. The Canon's are supposedly excellent printers, but the models I looked at seemed to be lacking in onboard features and had some ergonomic problems (like "push and click" doors that wouldn't stay closed) that were bothersome enough for me to eliminate them as a choice. HP's former top-of-the-line photo printer, the 7960 has recieved unanimous, excellent reviews and it's now lowered price makes it a very attractive option. But heading down to Staples, I had the chance to lay my eyes on the 8450. It just looked so much more solid than the 7960 that I had to find out if it was going to offer any improvements in photo quality. There are some comparison photos available at Photo-i (an excellent review site based in the UK) showed there was some difference between the two printers [...]%208450/page-3.htm . The 7960 looked a bit over-sharped, resulting in some jaggedness, as compared to the 8450's smooth (and somewhat off-putting) unfocused look. But as the reviewer points out here, these are huge blow-ups. For those who took away the same erroneous impression as I did, let me say that I've never seen crisper images from any photo printer I've owned than the 8450. They are really stunning.Read more ›

When I first saw this powerhouse printer on the shelves at CompUSA I couldn't believe they had replaced the 7960 printers already, but after further investigation, I found that this new model had some great improvements. Print quality is a bit better than last years models in that the colors seem more vibrant, and accurate to what the camera saw. The print speeds have jumped nicely, and the product itself feels more rugged. HP has thought of everything with this model. They included an Ethernet adapter in the unit to allow me to plug it right into my home network, and simplified the many options in the front of the printer for one touch printing, no PC necessary. The sales rep I spoke with also stated that they have found the new inks to last longer, so I won't be purchasing ink as often. He also said the pictures won't fade for over 100 years. I am very impressing with this printer! It has taking digital imaging to a new level at home.

I have owned MANY top end printers including the $700 EPson 2200, and Canon I9100, Epson R800, etc.

This HP is amazing. Best printer I have ever owned and prints that are better than ANY I have ever seen from ANY printer or lab. MAKE sure you only use HP paper as teh ink is forulated for use with their paper only. For eyeball popping quality, buy some HP premium plus papers and prepare to be amazed. The blacks are deep, the colors accurate and vivid. At this price, it KILLS my Epson R800 which was almost 2X the $$. The Epson is now clogged and useless, and teh HP will never get clogged due to the print heads being built in each cartridge!

Buy it and you will like it. HP has come a long way over the pasy couple of years, and with their new printers (8450 and 8750) they should be #1. Trust me, Ive owned all three top brands top of the line machines and this is my all time fave. Ill also buy the 8750 for 13X19 when it is released. Its that good.

I have been an HP fan for a long time. I picked up this printer a couple of days ago and so far, I have been very impressed. The Photosmart 8450 is an 8-ink printer just like the Photosmart 7960 which this printer replaces. I have owned a 7960 for over a year now and have been very happy with it. When I saw this model, I wasn't planning on replacing my current printer but the 8450 is network ready, a feature that I could really use. On first impressions, this printer is extremely well built, even more solid than it's predecessor. The photos that I printed off so far have been every bit as good if not better than the 7960 and in less time. The interface is very easy to use and it makes it simple to select multiple prints on a single page. No matter what type of digital camera you have, this printer will be compatible with it. It has card slots for all memory types as well as a PictBridge port for easy printing from a digital camera. I expect this printer will give me the same satisfaction as the one before.
