Summary: Slow set-up time aside, the HP Officejet Pro 8500 printer is an all-in-one with a host of features such as wireless, one-button scanning options, fax, and copier that will make any home or small office more efficient at a price that's pretty reasonable (especially if you take advantage of HP sales). Let's start with the (minor) complaints about the HP Officjet Pro 8500 All-in-One Printer. If you're in a rush to get it up and running, you're in for some frustration.
Pros: Excellent print and photo quality, Easy to set up and built-in wireless networking, Low price all-in-one
Cons: Long set-up time required, Printheads can be tricky to install
Summary: The HP Officejet Pro 8500 wireless makes a convincing inkjet argument for offices with a high volume of prints. With a function touch screen, multiple networking options, and an astoundingly fast print speed, it makes perfect sense to give this workhorse an Editors' Choice award.
Summary: As an all-round inkjet, the HP Officejet Pro 8500 works very well. Its low running costs will make it far cheaper than other inkjets - even lasers will find it hard to keep toner costs this low. We just wish it had produced cleaner colour prints on the middle quality setting. Despite what HP say, laser printers are still the best choice for offices requiring large text jobs.

Summary: I have been asked numerous times why the reviews of HP items suddenly stopped. The reason/excuse I was given by their then agency is too far fetched even to print. Now with a new agency I hope to be able to tell you about the current range of printers .
