Summary: Right off the bat the plus model of the 6500 has the duplex function which this does not so I'm disappointed. Plus the duplex attachment from mine which died does nothing with this unit which tells me that there's something withing the unit that is missing to enable the duplex function. Apart from that the item works. Still disappointed however but don't know what I can do about it.
Summary: I have two of these printers and I was able switch them back and forth as needed if the one I was using stopped working. However, now neither one will work. The most reliable one will not print black. Does print the colors. Unplugging it at the power box on the floor for a week or so has been working to fix this problem up to now. However, the other one simply will do nothing at all. This is very disappointing. Does anyone have a suggestion?
As much as I would love to say I love this printer it is so ...

Summary: As much as I would love to say I love this printer it is so annoying that every day, throughout each day, I have to continually shut it off and restart for it to print something via wireless. When it sits idle it does not pick up the wireless signal. Don't waste your money.
Summary: Worst printer ever. It never connects to wireless. If idle will not connect at all. If you are out of any color ink it will not allow you to print. Even if u have black ink and are only printing black and white. Gives constant error if you do not use HP ink.
Summary: In the end I didn't buy this from Amazon as the delivery lead time meant I was going to be without a printer for nearly two weeks - so that was a bit disappointing. However, the review is to assess performance and overall the outcome has been good. In summary: Easy to set up physically, unpacking (apart from vast amounts of bright blue sticky tape), paper and cartridges easy to install.
Doesn't print B&W without color cartridges in place

Summary: My Hp officejet 6500 A does NOT allow met to print using only black ink. I did not realize this when I had to print something last minute last night, and two of my color cartridges were missing because they had run out (and I frankly don't print much color, just use the printer, scanner, and fax for black and white).
