Summary: The positives: All in one w/ copy, fax, scan, & print functionality The HP support staff were very helpful in restoring the printer to full functionality on several occasions. (SW and printhead issues) Print quality seemed decent for home office type work (not doing photo quality printing here).
Summary: We don't print much at home but ink was still expensive part about owning this printer. It works well for about two years. Then the black won't print. We changed brand new black ink and still nothing prints.
Summary: Biggest negative: somewhat noisy. Cycles every few hours (I guess to keep the printer heads clean) Very good color quality. So-so ink usage. Depends on whether you're printing pictures or just text. Regular print cartriges don't last long. High capacity much better. Worked fine with Windows XP.
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.
Summary: I have always liked HP printers since my first 890C printer in the late 1990s. As they make new models , I like them less and less. I bought a 970Cse next, because I wanted the higher resolution picture printing.
Summary: This printer is very user friendly has a lot of features but small ink cartages are annoying and expensive in the long run. It got so bad that I started refilling them myself but it seems that you can get away with refilling them only for so long before they just quit.
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.
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.
