  1. Ivy says

    Would love to win this for my Mom. Her current printer isn’t great for printing pictures, so she’s always asking me to mail some pictures of her granddaughter down to her.

  2. says

    My husband has been wanting to get me a new printer for awhile. Our current one works great, but doesn’t have wireless capabilities, so it’s a huge hassle for me to have to use it with my laptop. We’ve actually been looking at the $150 model, because $350 is way out of our price-range :(

  3. Kathy Luman says

    I would love to have a modern updated printer. Mine is about 4 or 5 years old. It still works but it does none of things that the modern printers do. This would put right up there with the newest best printers. It would be awesome to own.

  4. says

    I had a HP for YEARS! I loved it. I got a Kodak because I wanted to print photos and it was on QVC. (LOL) I don’t like it AT ALL! I’ve had it 3 years and would LOVE to go back to HP!

  5. Carlyn Canady says

    I could REALLLY use a printer right now! And May 21 is my birthday! What an AWESOME birthday present!!!! Thanks Sue & Janice!

  6. says

    I would love to win this for my family! LOVE the photo collage blanket idea too! :) Happy Mother’s Day ladies! :)

  7. Kim Buck says

    I could really use a printer right about now! I no longer have a desktop computer, I only have a very old laptop with no printer hooked up to it for I have NO printer to hook up. So needless to say again, I really could use this HP printer. PLEASE????
    Thank you,
    Kimmie @

  8. says

    This would be a joy to own and use – my husband and I do have a printer that is currently 6 years old and working (for which I am thankful). But this would be terrific

  9. says

    I was just looking at this printer the other day – I’d love to win it! HP printers are supposed to work VERY well with Linux computers!

  10. Aura says

    My printer barely works and I would love one that prints pictures and other projects well for my kids. This sounds wonderful!!

  11. says

    We recently moved and in the process our printer went missing. I would love to win this to replace it! lovetoshopmom[@]yahoo[.]com

  13. Bonnie P says

    We got a new computer for Christmas and our old printer is not compatable, we need a printer compatable with windows 7

  14. helenlam says

    I’d love a new printer… I just got a new computer and a new camera and need a printer to go with it!

  15. says

    I’m a practical person when it comes to gifts too. I’d much prefer tech gadgets, maid service, a new set of pots & pans, etc…to flowers or a box of chocolates.

    P.S. I am unimpressed with our current printer (an epson) so I’d love to replace it with this “feature-full” HP one. :)

  16. rickpeggysmith says

    What a wonderful prize. For Mothers Day, I finally got a digital camera and a printer like this would be fantastic to have. Thanks so much for offering this prize.

  20. Kathy Luman says

  21. Shantel Cannon says

    What a great giveaway. I have been looking into a new printer and HP’s are great!! Thanks for the chance to win.. Hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day!

    My mom isn’t computer savvy at all, so I would like this as a belated Mother’s Day gift for myself. My current printer makes up its own color scheme when it prints!

    Wow, the timing on this is unreal!! My dad recently passed away and my family is planning a family reunion picnic as a memorial celebration of his life. We need to print invitations, maps, programs, and of course photos of my dad on all these things. None of us has a printer capable of producing good results. If I could win this HP Photosmart, that would solve a HUGE problem right now and save us printing money too, money that would be better spent on the actual memorial service.

    I would love to give this to my mom so I could print out great pictures when I am visiting her.

  40. Karen M says

    It would be great to win this HP Printer. I don’t seem to have much luck with printers, they seem to hate me. Maybe this HP Printer will be different and work well for me. Thanks for the giveaway.

  41. Kimberly says

    I love HP products. I have a black laser jet printer from them and touchsmart desk top and both work perfectly. I haven’t had any of the glitches that I’ve experienced with other brands. I would love to finally add a color printer. :)

  42. Dave says

    A wireless printer would be fantastic for us. Anyone can print from wherever they are in the house. Thank you for the chance to win.

  43. Sheila says

    We definitely need a new printer, and this one looks amazing! Also, I’ve heard so many good things about Snapfish – I think I’ll finally sign up! :)

    Now that I’ve moved out and we’re so caught up in our own lives I don’t see my mom as much as I used to… She’s always been the one to take pictures of everything and keep them as memories ever since I can remember… This printer will definitely be a nice surprise for my mom. I love you. Thank you for raising us and showing us what love is. Cheers to all moms out there!

  55. Rosey says

    You’re right, this would have been a great Mother’s Day idea. I think it would be a good Father’s Day gift too.

  56. Geoff K says

    I love all of the creative uses for this printer — definitely goes beyond simply creating banners and greeting cards with one’s photos, though I’m guessing the HP does those tried and true projects great as well. Would love to surprise my photog mom with a fantastic new printer – thanks!

  57. brdgcombs says

    My parents really need a new printer! A little late for mothers day but would make a great fathers day gift!

  60. Sarah L. says

    My computer is acting funny so I don’t know if it took my previous comment. If it did, please delete this one. If not, here is my comment: I will enjoy having this printer. Thanks for the contest.

  61. Michelle Dudley says

    I am trying to build up a nice computer system. Right now I’m using my children’s game console to get online and browse my photos. I got a really nice usb hd camera/camcorder for Christmas, but I have to go to the store anytime I want to print off pictures. This would help my step into modern times. I would love being able to make my photo ablums full of wonderful memories. Thank you
