Hopeless printer that has wasted too much of my time - don't let it waste yours

Kay, Amazon
17 August 2014
  • Summary: I have a love-hate relationship with this printer. When it works, it works beautifully - prints, scans, faxes, etc. beautifully, excellent quality, economical printing. When it doesn't work - it is a nightmare.

Top Rated but does not work

Rich, Rakuten
2 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought this printer in September 2009 to use in small home office. The first printer I received I had to return because of a problem with the power cord port. The colors do not print correctly. If you are printing something with yellow or red it will print with a dark tone.

Ink Cartridge Scam

anomaleigh, Amazon
15 July 2011
  • Summary: While the HP OfficeJet 8500 has some nice features, what I see as a major problem is that the software is designed to reject any attempts to print in black ink only.

Most finicky printer I've ever used

Nyssa, Amazon
21 June 2011
  • Summary: Perhaps the newer model is better. I've actually owned other HP all in ones that worked much better than this product. My work purchased this printer for me and my coworkers for our home offices. When it works, it works beautifully, with lovely clear prints and great scans.

Poor quality and customer support

Frustrated consumer, Amazon

Scooter Rooter, Amazon

not much automation

Ramblin, pcRUSH.com
1 November 2010
  • Summary: Comments about HP CB025A#B1H: I bought the printer mostly to scan loan documents to pdf files. I wanted two trays so the printer would auto select legal or letter size. The scanner requires me to go in each time and select crop document or it will add white space to fill from the edge of the paper...

Qrysta White, Amazon
10 August 2010
  • Summary: See my full review in the, "Has anybody used the HP 8500 with a Mac?" Forum. Link is toward the bottom of the item listing main page here on Amazon or on Epinions dot com.
