Summary: I bought this product after having the 6500a Plus for a few months. That one worked well and I was in need of a second printer and decided to buy another HP product. The plus indicates that it is wifi enabled the 6500A does not have this feature but was $25 less expensive. For an "all in One" printer it is certainly up to the work load I will demand of it. The print quality is acceptable. The fax feature works well.
Summary: I've been using this printer daily, for a week. I have found it to be an excellent value for the price paid and recommend it as a good All-in-One printer, particularly for those needing AirPrint (allows printing from iPod/iPad devices). The PLUS model adds a duplexer, which I did not need, and it was nice to have simliar features, without having to pay for things I didn't need. There are a few things that could be better..
Summary: no problem with set up just read the direction and us the phone cord that comes with it. the cord does make a difference. ...... prints, copies, scans, receives and sents faxes great. .......... cons: screen window is to small and when u are seated it is distorted ..... u need to stand to read the screen ....
Summary: While this is not a fully wireless printer, once hooked up to the wireless router it works like it is wireless. Wherever I have signal on the laptop I can print as if it were wired via USB cable. A bonus is that I can print from anywhere using the eprint feature. The print quality is very solid on Pictures and documents. Scan feature is super easy making great duplicates on both print and pictures. The document feeder is sweet for multiple copies.
Summary: Just received it, and installation was very simple. Print quality is quite good for an inkjet. The exterior design seems very well done. I also have an older model of this unit, an HP Officejet G85, and I have been very happy with this machine. It has performed flawlessly since I purchased it several years ago. This reliability was the deciding factor in purchasing the new unit.
HP6500A Printers Rated 1 Of The Top 5 Printers On Yahoo
5 June 2011
Summary: Wonderful product for the price! Can't go wrong. I have only used the print feature so far and played around with the apps buttons on the printer. After I bought the printer, I noticed Yahoo listed this HP All-in-One printer as one of the 5 top rated printers on the market. It was rated one of the top due to the cost of the printer, setup and usage of the equipment, and the number of printable pages per toner. It's quite an inexpensive model to use.
