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...
  • Pros: Easy Setup

Freeze problem

2purr4, Ebay
6 August 2010
  • Summary: I was swayed by the Hp reputation. I have since found out that many, if not all, of their "All in One" units have a freeze up problem. The unit works fine, is fast, etc. but will occasionally freeze.

HP 8500 Premier Printer

Walmart
10 May 2010
  • Summary: Unfortunately the "all in one" is quite a misnomer as it prints fairly well but all else pretty poorly. If faxing a multiple page fax (and I admit I do that a lot) from the document feeder it has an annoying habit of pulling multiple pages through at a time.

Disappointment

Walmart
10 May 2010
  • Summary: I have always been very pleased with HP inkjet printers. The 8500 I have works very well unless you want to print a photo. I purchased this to replace a printer and scanner and recover some desk space. All the features work fine.

Bad Choice

Walmart
21 June 2009
  • Summary: This printer is a bad choice! It takes too long to warm up and doesn't function after a while and must be turned off and then turned back on and again it takes too long to warm up. It sits there for a while then we notice we are not getting faxes.

Buy at the peril of your wallet!!

M Ingledew, Amazon
8 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought this printer for its scanning capabilities and for the LIMITED printing I need to do. I have had it probably 18 months and I have spent the GDP of a small country on replacement cartridges.
