Cartridges

  • Summary: Are too expensive. The top SLAMS down when closing it. Easy to operate though but the next printer I buy I will check out the price of the cartridges.

HP 6500 Scan feature doesn't work - piece of #$@%

Amazon Customer "vjochim", Amazon
4 October 2011
  • Summary: I have an HP Officejet 6500 Wireless printer and it has been nothing but problems to get installed and the SCAN feature does not work . This is a piece of "sheist" = The HP scan buttons on the printer don't work because the scan menu doesn't recognize the name of the computer. So, you have to use Windows Fax and Scan software which creates TIF files, then you have to print those to a pdf file, and the image is upside down. Piece of sheist.

HP Junk

Andrew Jauhola, Amazon
1 August 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this printer so multiple computers could print from our wireless network. This product is wired directly to our wireless router. After about a year, the document feeder stopped working. In order for the product to work, you must install the bloated HP Solution Center that comes with the printer. Unfortunately, about every 3 weeks the software says that "installation of your device is not complete" and requires you to run the installation software again.

INK HOG

  • Summary: This was a poor purchase. Function is fine but it is forever out of ink and the small color cartridges cannot be refilled. Don't buy it.

HP Officejet 6500

kevns28, Ebay
29 March 2011
  • Summary: First I got this printer used. I have had nothing but problems with it. The install disk did not work so I had to get another one, that one worked. I found some time to get the ink ($84.94). I came back home and installed the ink, now it says that the printhead is missing or damaged, I know I put it in right. I bought it off of Ebay and it said I was getting a used but well working printer. I still can't print.

Bad Printer

T. Pagni, Amazon
23 March 2011
  • Summary: Loud Sucks up too much ink Funny to watch it warm up for a few minutes while making tons of noise to print a single sheet of paper If you are not super careful when installing new ink you will damage the product and will need a replacement (it happened to me) Software is awful, talks too long to install, gets messed up and requires re-install There is no value in having all of the in colors in separate cartridges.

It sucks

Hank the Graphic Designer, pcRUSH.com
27 February 2011
  • Summary: Comments about HP Officejet 6500 E709A Multifunction Printer: I use The 6500 Officejet all day . Very good but 1} Cartridges don't last long and messy to load 2) Too many gadgets 3) It seems flimsy and obviously made to eat up ink cardriges to make more profit. 4) I hate it. What happened to the old inkjet printers that had lots of ink in them? Do you think the consumer is stupid? You smart guys need to figure out a way to illiminate the cartridges or make them bigger.
  • Pros: Easy To Setup, Fast Print Time, Reliable
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction, Hard To Use, Too much ink used

Not what I expected.........

purplekar89, Ebay
6 February 2011
  • Summary: This printer has no good way of cleaning its inside if ink is split. The user guide does not offer any help either. No impressed with the cleaning aspect. The print quality lacks for the price you would pay for his printer. But,all in all it is a great all in one!

Great printer except for fatal flaw of power save mode freezing my computer system

Andrew M., Amazon
26 January 2011
  • Summary: I like this HP 6500 a lot, it is a reasonably well made sturdy unit, with all the features one wants in an all-in-one. All the features seem to work quite well, and it's overall a very good buy for the money in the affordable all in one ink jet category (except for the one fatal flaw discussed later).
