Excerpt: My husband got me the all in one printer and when i say all in one i mean it. Fax, print, copy, you name it and i bet it can do it. The only problem is, it didnt come with ink jets so i cant use it right now. So when buying this printer (unlike my hubby) ask about the toners, ink jets, and cartridgers before buying b/c they are really high dollar.
Excerpt: Hp has always made some decent products, but this time they have went too far in cutting corners. The printer carries a small injet in which you must have refilled or replaced about every 3 months. depending on how much printing you do in a month or so time, as for me I do a lot of printing with a home based business I run. this printer can not possibly keep up.
Excerpt: The HP Officejet Pro 8500 is a disappointment, compared to the L7580 Model, which it replaced. I must admit, I like the way it scans without jamming. But I find it impossibe (even with the aid of a techie) to get it to print from my second computer, which I keep off line. The ink cartridges look the same on the two, but have different stock numbers, thus creating problems for one with two machines. It also vibrates like a bowl full of jelly. And who needs that?
Excerpt: I had HP for years as a designer. I purchased this computer to do it all. It is not friendly with a Mac OS system. It is always cleaning itself which is over 20 minutes. The ink gets used quickly even though I used xl cartridges which is supposed to last longer. The printing is slow and the spooling the info to the printer is slow. Also HP support is awful. Reviewer received a sample of this product.
HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless (CB023A)does not work all the ti
9 September 2012
Excerpt: HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless (CB023A)does not work all the time. I had to return the first one and got a refurbish one back from HP. When I first turned it on I got the error message"Pump Motor Failure" - I called HP, and it took them many hours and could not figure out why and told me to send it back. After giving me a refurbished one, that one seems to work. So I paid full price for a refurbished printer.
Summary: This printer has me nearly ready to never buy another HP printer ever again. The wireless stinks, as in I never seem to be able to connect to it. My old printer with a wireless print server was more effective. And to top it all off, I'm out of yellow ink so now I can't print black printers. Amazing, right? I highly recommend that you don't buy this one.
Summary: take forever to startup and check everything than it cleans printheads for about 15 minutes before use. hp blew it on this model. my 30 dollar hp i bought at Target 5 years ago still works better than this model.
Summary: Need i say more, after almost 2 yrs, i finally am washing my hands of it. regularly has jam issues, and the ink cartridges are expensive. I set up an Epson with CISS and so far it works great. Cartridges auto reset and ink is a fraction, yet gives great prints. I use it (an Artisan) most for CD/DVD printing on the disks and they look great. I tried setting up this HP and before the ink finally wears off my hands, it has another problem and so on.
Summary: It has been about two years since I bought my HP Officejet Pro 8500 A909n. For the most part it works pretty well, was cheap to purchase and maintenance costs are pretty low. However, I no longer run a home-based business and I do not do a lot of printing anymore. I am trying to convert to a paperless office and I bought this printer to replace the Samsung color laser that died. My intent was to use the 8500 to scan documents into my computer.
Summary: It prints fine and the flatbed scanner works fine, but the document feeder always gets jammed, just using normal paper, It has never completed a page scan without getting jammed using the document feeder!
