I would not buy this item nor would I buy an HP printer again.

Tweety 42, Amazon
28 January 2013
  • Summary: I have owned this item since March, 2011. Here is what I have discovered while using this product for almost two years: -Print quality is sub-standard. The colors are not very accurate -Jams very easily, and when you try to remove the jam, the paper rips internally. -It takes forever to cancel a copy. Most of the time it just hangs and I have to restart the machine. -Start up and shut down is very slow.

Scan Problems

Mountain Guy, Amazon
24 October 2011
  • Summary: I was pleased this was delivered within a day or two. The setup was fairly easy except it would not scan. After spending hours, two separate times, on the phone with HP I decided to return the darn thing. What worked, worked fine - just could not get it to scan. I went to costco.com and got a Brother in less than two days. It works great. Amazon was easy to deal with on the return.

Rubish

Filippo De Luca, Amazon

  • Summary: Rubbish, but yes it is very cheap so you can expect it. I have bought this one because I don't have any money to buy a better one.

Jammed up !

jolt 125, Amazon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: Have always gone for HP printers so no reason to change or so I thought !! Delivery was better than promised, but upacked the printer and followed the instructions. Installed cartridge cradle closed the cover and didnot sound good !! Cradle was jammed and would not move. Contacted help line and followed instructions - No good. Hp e-mailed and said replace in 24 hours, please complete form.

Good at first but didn't last

Mr Bloke, Amazon
1 October 2012
  • Summary: When I got this printer, I was very happy. Print and scan quality was good and the setup was easier than other reviews had led me to believe. Just over a year on and I'm far less happy. Ink usage has been high and expensive and, worst of all, I have just had to replace the printhead as it had clogged - a total cost of £70 including replacement cartridges.

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!

R. Stonn, Amazon
22 May 2012
  • Summary: Got this promptly from Amazon (before the due date!), well packed as well. It's big, bigger than what it looks like in the picture, you have been warned. Got the wireless setup in a little while (have no idea about fax as I don't need it) and it printed and scanned without a problem - so far so good. Keep in mind I am a software pro so working with computers and trouble shooting is a regular day for me.

Very Disappointing

Louise Messik "book lover", Amazon
26 April 2011
  • Summary: I have had the HP Officejet 6500A for around two months. Perhaps I did not read the technical data properly but until I got it I was unaware that it could not cope with double sided printing and that the only way this could be achieved was by setting it to print the odd numbered pages first and then turning them over and printing the even numbered pages. I have never been able to connect it to my wireless network. It gets 2 stars because it is quiet and prints quickly.

ADF is not a true ADF !!!

A. Hall, Amazon
27 February 2011
  • Summary: I received this printer promptly from Amazon and it was easy to unpack and install. This included getting it connected to my wireless network and MacBookPro running Mac OS 10.6.6. Basic operation is fine and print quality nice on standard HP printer paper. Now comes the major problem with this printer. Even though it has duplex printing and an ADF (auto document feeder) it will !! NOT !!

Fiasco de impresora

ertanomacareno, Ciao
14 March 2014
  • Excerpt: He tenido impresoras de HP siempre, nunca he comprado otra de otra marca, y de me he llevado una gran desilusión con esta. Tiene ahora mismo 2 años, ya fuera de garantía... y qué casualidad que se ha atrancado el carro de los cartuchos y no hay manera de que salga. Habrá que llevarla al SAT. Ya empezó a dar problemas hace unos meses con la misma pieza, hasta que a día de hoy no puedo utilizarla.
  • Pros: Buena calidad de impresión
  • Cons: Pasado un tiempo, falla más que una escopeta de feria .
