Multifunction Printer Review: HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus
22 November 2010
Conclusion: Is the HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus e-All-in-One going to meet every potential user's needs? Of course not ... but then no such device ever could. While we'd personally prefer having a second tray and would likely choose to spend $70 more for the 8500A Premium, it's nice to have both options...
Conclusion: HP delivers another rock solid business AIO in the Officejet Pro 8500A Plus. It offers a quick printing pace and quality, very decent scanning and copying, as well as added functionality in the form of ePrint and Air Print.
Pros: Multiple connectivity options, handy colour touch-enabled display, ADF, ePrint as well as AirPrint and auto duplex.
Cons: Bulky AIO, flimsy output tray cant print docs straight from the USB, long warmup time.
Excerpt: This printer is very big and takes up a lot of space. There is no USB cable supplied – you use a wireless connection to your computer. We printed the same 5-page document on all the printers and times were the fastest with this printer.
