4 Star Review     

Strengths: Prints clearly and quickly

Weakness: Ink cartridges seem small

So far so good with the HP 5650 which replaced my HP 970 cxi. It has been performing well for this first week that I've had it. I recommend it.

4 Star Review   By member zshen - Jun 21, 2005   

Strengths: good quality

Weakness: ink expensive

I bought this inkjet printer about one and a half years ago. I think I made the right decision buying it. The quality is very good. However, as with all inkjet printers, the ink costs too much. So I stopped using it after the ink ran out after 3 months.

5 Star Review   By member johnb3030 - Jan 13, 2005   

Strengths: Great print quality, reasonably fast, excellent value.

Weakness: Expensive ink cartridges.

I bought this unit to replace an 8 year old HP Deskjet which finally ground to a halt. I printed out a test sheet and was amazed at the quality of the color picture, given that I was using plain paper and only the standard 3 color cartridge. I note that many current printers have eliminated the parallel port interface. This one still has it, and that was a factor in my decision to buy it. This model is about 2 years old and may be about due to be discontinued by HP. That may explain why it is being sold at a large discount. Since I probably will use it for at least 5 years anyway, I don't mind that it isn't the absolute latest model. I was more interested in saving some money.

3 Star Review   By member eshadow - Jan 1, 2005   

Strengths: ok print quality, but not that great. I owned this only for 15 days and upgrade it to HP 5850

Weakness: slow printing, fast ink consumption, ink is not cheap

This is a nice printer for the entry level, but not more. Don't use that for high-quality printing tasks. For familiy use, i think that's probably ok.

The HP 5650 is a good choice for home or office. The printer is fast and provides excellent print quality in both color and black and white. Front paper load another plus vs. top loading printers. A great ink jet printer for the price.

larger than last printer. But makes up for it in speed and quality. unable to do one envelope at a time. must remove all paper to do a quick envbelope. earlier hp printers had the capability to do one envelope without emptying paper tray.

Strengths: Good-looking style

Weakness: Too loud

With a black transparent cover, this printer looks great on my computer desk. This 5650 is a bit better than my original Deskjet 940. The printing speed is fast enough for me and its quality is very clear. The best printer I've ever had.

4 Star Review   By member misskeri - Jan 14, 2004   

Strengths: Photo print quality, ease.

Weakness: Slower printing than expected.

Print quality on photo paper is AMAZING! We recently returned an Epson printer because it couldn't do the job -- this one makes it look like we developed them professionally. We bought and used the optional photo ink cartridge to print photos and it really helped. The automatic paper reader is nice, too. The only problem is we can't figure out how to make it print plain black and white documents quickly. But we've only had it for two weeks -- we'll probably figure it out.

5 Star Review   By member DELL3 - Jan 14, 2004   

Strengths: Very good print quailty; both in black and color.

The HP 5650 is a great improvement over our last printer (lEMARK). The paper is easy to load into the machine (front load, not the top), its easy to install ink cartridges and the unit takes up less space on our desk.. The black and color copys are excellent, not to mention photo pictures using their #58 color cartridge. A great inkjet printer for the price.

4 Star Review   By member rbweddle - Jan 2, 2004   

Strengths: Very flexible and high quality printer for the price. The photo reproduction is very good. External print controls are a real time saver.

Weakness: The printer is a little slow getting started and makes a lot of noise feeding paper. The ink supply is small, and expensive.

I have owned HP Deskjet and Officejet products for years and you can't beat the HP quality and technical support. We have several 5650's in the office and I bought this model based on quality and price combination

5 Star Review   By member derbbre - Nov 30, 2003   

Strengths: Amazing quality, decent speed.

Weakness: Expensive ink (but what inkjet doesn't have expensive ink?)

I don't know why others are having speed problems. The advertised speed is accurate -- you must choose draft quality to get this speed. The advertised "normal" black speed is 7ppm, and "best" black speed, 1ppm. (Color speeds are 15, 5, and 1, repectively.) You gotta read the small print, people, and notice it says "up to". Also, if you have spooling turned on, your computer's speed will make a difference. If you can't wait one minute for your page to print, look elsewhere. However, for a $120 (after rebates) printer, this is a great deal. Text is crisp and can almost fool me into thinking it's from a laser. There are (at least yet) *no* gaps or fades in the output. The photos from this printer are almost indistinguishable from a "real" photo. The 4x6 full-bleed makes your printer a mobile fotomat. This printer includes a automatic paper quailty sensor that adjusts the output for each paper type. If you will print photos, do yourself a favor and purchase a photo ink cartridge and HP photo paper with this printer. Highly recommended.

2 Star Review   By member carlnewman - Nov 23, 2003   

Strengths: Has some improved features and more flexibilty than my old Deskjet 882C

Weakness: Advertised 21 pages/min. It's slower than my old 882C. About 5 ppm would be closer. The print screen feature has a popup window to select the print. In some screens it prints blocking your screen.

Nice looking and supposed to be fast (21 ppm). Has more features than my old printer. More color and print quality adjustments. But I bought it for its advertised speed and it's slower than my old printer. I plan to send it back unless HP can show me it's not setup properly. One review I read said 7ppm. I though that must be a mistake. It's not!!
