I bought the glossy paper to use in the transfer of photos from my computer virtual world into the everyday physical world. The transfer of information looks great almost as if it were printed from an old 35mm type film. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I spent extra on this paper thinking that it would be worth it to have good prints. It jammed repeatedly in my HP C6180, smearing photos and wasting huge amounts of ink. I thought the problem was with the old printer. Just tried with brand new HP8600 and the paper will not feed through the printer at all. The box says that this will work with all ink jet printers but it doesn't even work with HP printers. Save your money!
I originally bought the less expensive HP photo paper and it was fine. Then upon reordering, I decided to get the Premier most expensive paper which was a mistake. Now when I opt to print a photo, I get 2/3 s of the photo on the Premier paper and 1/3 of the photo on regular copy paper. This has happened now several times and I am wasting ink. I will never order the Premier paper again.
You new Premium Plus glossy photo photo paper is very poor quality and not worth the money. I used to exclusively use your Premium Plus glossy photo paper for all of my photo prinrting needs. However, with the change to the new "non-premium" Premium Plus glossy paper I have switched to another brand of photo paper. I find that Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy is an excellent photo paper and gives the results that I used to get with your Premium Plus glossy photo paper.
I think any problems other reviewers may have had with Premium Plus may be with HP's communication, not with the paper itself. When I bought my HP Photosmart 7510 printer almost a year ago, an HP representative told me it was calibrated for the new version of Premium Plus. At the time, I took that claim with a grain of salt. Only recently did I take the printer out of the box and start using it. I can report that my prints on the new Premium Plus Glossy have been nothing short of stunning. I've ordered some of the new Premium Plus Soft Gloss to see what results I obtain with that. To get the sharpest prints, with the most saturated and accurate colors, I find I have to set the printer's Preferences as follows: Media: "HP Premium Plus Photo Papers" and, under Advanced: Output Quality: "Maximum dpi" and Real Life Technologies (sharpness): "On." I learned this partly by trial and error, partly by finding and downloading the User Guide from the HP web site, and partly from links in the User Guide to HP Support. I only wish this information had been included in the printed brochure that came with the printer.
