Introduction

The HP Photosmart B8550 is a high-end photo printer that can handle big prints: up to 13 x 19 inches on a single sheet, or even larger as banner prints. It produces good quality prints, with good color accuracy and deep blacks. But it's a noisy printer and it takes some time to set up and use.
