Summary: For the past 18 months i have been extremely pleased I bought this HP Officejet 6500 All-in-One printer. As I do a very limited amount of colour printing my emphasis was on greyscale and to this end the large cartridges did me just fine. As we all have been a party to past machine experiences and especially those that leave us with a rather bitter taste in ones mouth on this occasion the Printer Head went speedily southwards after less than two years of regular but...
The HP Officejet wireless 6500 does an admirable job.

Excerpt: As a wireless printer, this product works fine, most of the time. The instructions for assembling the printer were easy to understand the pictures helped to make it a quick process. When powering on, the printer takes about two or three minutes before it is ready to use. As it sets itself, it is very noisy. Turning off the printer is the reverse of the powering on process.
Excerpt: This printer certainly gets the job done, I'll give it that. But it's pretty noisy and rather hard to figure out. The printer we had before died suddenly and we replaced it with this one. It's very big and just barely fits in our cupboard where we had our old one. And did I mention that is it noisy? The ink runs smoothly, and it comes with fax, printing, and copying capabilities.
Excerpt: I bought this on a whim after a trip to my local Staples. Generally, I would check reviews first to see what kinds of ratings the product was getting but this time the price was right so I jumped on the deal. Not a bad choice as it turns out but with there are a few little niggles I could do without. My main reason for buying was to replace an ailing HP Deskjet 880C which is sloooooow to print and has no features other than plain printing.
Excerpt: I purchased my HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-in-One Printer a couple of months ago, and mostly I like it. It prints high quality pages that are very crisp and clear. The wireless feature was easy to set up and it's probalby my favorite feature. I love being able to scan, print and fax without having to have my laptop plugged in all the time.
Excerpt: This printer is cool and nice. The Wireless settings and everything is easy to set up. However, Ink goes pretty fast! But the printer is used for a small business (home based) and college reports and stuff. I get the XL inks from HP, They are a little bit more but last somewhat longer than normal cheap ink! I would rather have a printer with all the features that this has but with better quality and longer lasting ink! It has a memory card slot for cameras and such.
Quick and good for word documents, but it's an ink guzzler.

Summary: In the month I've had this printer, I've had to buy 2 sets of ink cartridges and I've had some alignment problems, so this printer is really not suitable for photo printing or graphics. And I thought this was wi-fi ready, but it isn't. However, it's pretty fast and considering how much I paid for this, I could do much worse, so value-wise I'm satisfied.
Summary: I've had this setup for about 2 years and it has worked okay. I must say that I've had my share of headaches with it though. * The setup CD doesn't work with Windows 7 system, so when I got my new laptop with Win7 I couldn't use the disc. Had to go to their website to download drivers, and I still have been unable to successfully set up the HP Tool app that allows me to do the scan function.
Summary: I was given this HP Officejet 6500 by my company and have been using it for 1.5 years. The print quality is nice but the printing process is very loud. In addition, it takes roughly 60 seconds to print waking up from sleep. Yes, that is 60 seconds of loud, noisy cranking while it calibrates. (I don't understand it; but I should attach a video clip to this review one of these days...
Summary: Does it print well? Yep. Does it scan easily? Yep. Does it fax? Yep. Does it copy? Yep. Easy to set up? Yep. Does it even work with Linux? Yep, that, too. So what's not to love? Well, how about after each print job, it goes through a print head resetting routine that lasts, oh, about 20-30 seconds. Whirring, spitting, grinding...until your head explodes. I can understand going through all this when you replace the cartridge(s), but after EACH PRINT JOB? C'mon, already.
