A new printer from Hewlett-Packard has received positive reviews from critics, with one praising its ink cartridges.

The HP Photosmart B8550 was called "sleek" and was given a ten out of ten rating by Dave Huss of Layers Magazine.

According to the reviewer, the printer's ink cartridges are particularly noteworthy as they offer good accuracy of colour and high-quality output.

"The B8550 uses a dye-based, five-ink printing system to produce archive-quality images with an expected 100-year lifetime, which is a lot longer than the life span of any client," Mr Huss revealed.

"I had some doubts about how prints would stack up against printers offering more inks, but I was pleasantly surprised at how good the B8550 prints appeared. The colours were vivid and the detail was sharp."

The HP Photosmart B8550 comes with five ink cartridges which users can replace at will, making the printer a cost-effective solution for the money-conscious.
