HP today announced the Photosmart B8550 Photo Printer, a home printer that can produce from 4x6in photos to large-format prints up to 13×19 inches. And it prints directly from digital cameras without using a computer.
HP says that with affordable individual ink cartridges, this versatile 5-ink printing system provides laser-quality pigment ink black text and lab-quality photos, making it a perfect upgrade from current home photo printers.
The company adds that the HP Photosmart B8550 Photo Printerâ€™s long-lasting, dual-drop-volume print head is comprised of 55 percent recycled plastic material (RPET). HP derived the recycled material from Original HP ink cartridges collected through HPâ€™s Planet Partners return and recycling program and other sources such as plastic water bottles.
The HP Photosmart B8550 Photo Printer retails for $300.
