Good printer! Its very silent compared to other epson printers I've had previously. The pages come out pretty fast, with excellent quality prints. The ink is not that expensive and lasts pretty long. I would definitely recommend this printer to any business users or personal home users.

So I hate the new HP - but I love this printer, and so I bought one... and I am happy for now! If I upgrade to a new operating system in the future and must buy a cd with drivers for my printer...Then I will be unhappy! but who knows when that will be! prints great color, and just fine on printing black pages. I like that i can add a douplexer on the back of it if i need... I don't like the fairly large margins that this printer needs, when printing on 8.5x11 a friendly tip: use KRYLON #1303 Crystal Clear Acrylic Coating on all your Archival-Professional prints! Your prints will last MUCH Longer (50years+) and the extra gloss will make your prints look even better!

HP5550 PRINTER GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by ROBERT on 7/5/2003

THE ONLY WAY THIS PRINTER COULD BE BETTER, IS IF YOU COULD TALK TO IT, AND TELL IT WHAT TO DO. PERFORMANCE IS GREAT FOR EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO PRINT. GREAT PRINTS, AND VERY SMOOTH RUNNING.

Slacked on the small stuff

by Justin on 7/13/2003

I agree with the other reviews that the print quality is very good with this printer and it has some nice features, like auto calibration. However, it ends there. The speed of this printer is barely adaquate by today's standards - not as fast as my 940c which this one replaced. Also, mine had trouble out of the box with paper feeding; it would only feed if the paper tray was less than half full, not huge, but very annoying. Also, the printer does not print as close to the bottom of the page as most do. For example, the URL at the bottom of web printouts gets cut in half. For the price, this is not a bad printer, but it does have its faults. P.S. Don't waste your money on a photo cartrige, it prints better without one.
