Not a reliable machine

freeportdmax, Ebay
6 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought this unit used. It was advertised as fully functional, but it does not duplex reliably. The seller credited me some of the purchase price, so I got a printer that "works" for simplex printing only. Not what I was looking for.

I have not been able to use it since I received it. Thank-you

marine2236, Ebay
22 August 2014
  • Summary: Dear ebay, I bought it because I need an all in one printer. I like it because it has all the needs I like. However, I haven't been able to use it. It did not have the two head printers or the cord to connect to the wall. I have already written to you twice able the product. I would probably like it if I had all the parts. I had to go to Wall Mart and buy me a simple printer until you guys can get it to work for me. I would surely appreciate it. I await your respond.

It was cheap!

Buffalogal, Amazon
14 March 2011
  • Summary: We bought this on a special sale for under $100. At the time, we were moving and forming a separate company, and wanted to keep our costs low. After a little more than a year, we are replacing it. It will not reliably receive faxes, and I have tried to download new firmware, but could not get the download to install. Of course, we're out of warranty at this point. We're only somewhat happy with this machine for reasons that are mainly our own fault.

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. We call around and find out faxes are coming in but the 8500 is not anwsering. We turn it off and wait awhile then turn it back on and it takes forever to warn up then it works. Also it quits printing.
