For fast speeds and great photo quality, the HP Photosmart B8350 inkjet printer is a great choice. Photographers and hobbyists will find it a great solution for producing excellent photos, but average users will probably find it is not versatile enough for their needs, and printer ink costs are much higher than traditional inkjet models, as HP B8350 ink is expensive.
The machine takes up a fairly large footprint, making it less suitable for small office spaces. It measures 22.6 inches by 12.2 inches by 24.5 inches and weighs 26.5 pounds. This makes it tougher to fit on a desk or places where space is limited. Paper capacity is a bit small, at up to 75 sheets. For the buyer expecting to use it as an office printer, the small paper capacity could be the biggest stumbling block.
Print speeds are impressive, at up to 31 pages per minute for black and 24 pages per minute for color. There is an option for an automatic duplexer, though users who want duplexing can find less expensive models that already include this feature, especially if they don't need the B8350's specialized photo printing features. Borderless printing is available for most popular sizes, and the included software makes producing creative projects quick and easy.
The main issue is the high cost of printer ink. In order to get the best photo quality, buyers must add optional HP B8350 ink cartridges, and the overall cost of replacing so many Photosmart B8350 ink cartridges will quickly add up. Third-party compatible Photosmart B8350 ink is available, but it is still more expensive than most models.
Buyers who want a versatile printer should probably look elsewhere, but for those who want some of the best photo quality available at its price point, the HP B8350 is an excellent choice, as long as the high cost of HP B8350 ink doesn't faze them.
