Summary: I have had this printer for about 16 mos and I originally loved it! I thought the printing was great, quality was great. I did think that I did go thru ink quickly but I still loved it.. Just this month it stopped printing black ink. I replaced a new cartridge and it still did not work. After googling it I found it sometimes this happens :( it was recommended that I take the printer head out and soak it.. Will try this before I trash it.
Summary: Touch screen is hard to view unless directly above it. Canceling a print leads to a several minute delay while the machine recovers from the change in plan. If you do a lot of single copies of items, it can drive you crazy just getting ready to do something. If you don't like the low ink warnings, this is the printer for you. When you run out of any of the colors, it just prints with whatever color it has left.
The HP 6500-A: Poorly Contructed with Lots of Features
11 June 2011
Summary: Hewlett-Packard has out-flimsied themselves with the 6500-A. The construction is as cheap as they could possibly have made it. My previous HP printer had the hinges break off of the scanner cover in gentle normal usage... not allowing cover to close and ending it's life. Hence, I had to buy another printer. My previous HP unit used 6 large cartridges that were inexpensive to replace. Great color rendition.
Pros: Good looks, nice functionality (including eprint) Nice print quality
Cons: print speed is too slow for a soho printer. Drivers need improvement. What's with the unit going into sleep mode? You have to power off then on to wake it up. Solutions center has no work-around for this.
Summary: This was a Christmas gift from me to my wife, who needed the copy/scanner features. I was more interested in getting a wireless printer that supported AirPrint for iPhones/iPads (had to install a firmware upgrade to get that, but that was very easy and it worked.) SO far everything about this printer works as advertised. It fits our needs as far as print quality is concerned, color and otherwise, and prints quickly and quietly.
Summary: Vorgeschichte Bereits vor ca. zwei Jahren haben wir uns dazu entschieden, endlich einen neuen Drucker zu kaufen. Der alte Drucker zeigte nach und nach mehr Schwächen auf, der Einzug funktionierte nicht mehr richtig und die Tintenkosten waren auf einem nicht erträglichen Level. Normalerweise sehe ich es immer so, wenn der Drucker günstiger ist, sind die Patronen teurer und andersrum.
Pros: druckt schnell, Funktionen
Cons: Scannen, Patronen teuer, lange Ladezeit, Auffindbarkeit im Netzwerk
Summary: Nutzen ihn seit 2011. Der Drucker ist o.k.. Druckt sogar doppelseitig! Da ich aber nicht HP-Tinte nutzt, nörgelt er jedesmal herum: Ein Fenster öffnet sich, das mich auf Risiken und Nebenwirkungen von "Fremdtinte" hinweist. Da muss ich jedesmal "o.k." drücken. Schade! Ich weiß nicht, wie man diesen Reflex unterdrücken kann.
