Horrible image quality

HP Recommended
Hp sprocket
Just purchased an hp sprocket and in doing some test prints, I have to say the image quality is just terrible. Firmware is completely updated on the sprocket and have done all the other troubleshooting tips. I had a picture with an ivory background and the print looks completely oversaturated and ivory looked more like orange. It appears other people's prints are similar. Such a shame since it's such a cool concept.
