Maybe it was worth the 6500 trip

Louis Dumbrowski, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • 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...

Quick and good for word documents, but it's an ink guzzler.

1649dan, Ebay
5 May 2012
  • 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.

Not the best, but it's been workable

tbear "tbear", Amazon
6 April 2012
  • 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.

Very loud and slow to warm up from sleep

L. KENG "Truth Seeker", Amazon
26 February 2012
  • 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...

Works fine, but...

Babba Booey, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • 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.

Pretty Good, but I have complaints

Small Buisness Owner, Amazon
17 November 2011
  • Summary: The only reason I am writing this review is because I have been reading review after review today and it is exhausting and ridiculous how companies can produce so many faulty printers. I thought I would add my review of my printer for those searching/crying and needing direction... So, I have had this printer for over a year and I use it with an IMac. I never used its wireless capabilities.

digital control plate is becoming unreadable

A. Fenolio, Amazon
8 August 2011
  • Summary: I would have given this printer more stars because I like it, but about seven months after the one year warranty ended, the control panel started getting white lines in it (or rather, is not allowing the black text to appear) and is gradually becoming unreadable. It's a good thing that I don't frequently change the settings because I won't be able to read what they are very soon.

  • Summary: It is cheap and it works good for cheap printer. Ink runs out fast. Wish I had bought a little bit better one.

HP Officejet 6500

PKL, Amazon
24 January 2011
  • Summary: This printer had a good price and a lot of nice features, but there were several things that I did not like. First of all the software on this printer is the worst I have ever seen and it was very difficult to get the software loaded on my computer. I have Windows Vista Home Premium operating system on my computer and it took me many hours to install it.

The Hewlett Packard OfficeJet 6500... almost breaks our printer curse

knotheadusc, epinions.com
1 December 2010
  • Summary: This machine has performed better than some of the printers in my past.
  • Pros: Multi-functional. Works with PCs and Macs. Wireless and basically reliable.
  • Cons: Noisy, bulky, and very particular about paper loading.
