HP Officejet Pro 8500A All-in-One Printer
12 June 2011
Summary: The HP Officejet Pro 8500A is a wireless all-in-one that features a touchscreen, a duplexer, and customizable apps that can be downloaded from HP. It takes a long time to set up, and once it is set up, it's a bit noisy. However, it has good print speeds even across a wireless network, and photo prints look excellent. A built-in (in this case, attachable) duplexer adds convenience; and a second paper tray is available for purchase.
Pros: Excellent print and photo quality, Easy to set up and built-in wireless networking, Customizable apps, Touchscreen
Cons: Long set-up time required, Noisy, Some oversaturation of duplex pages
Summary: The HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus inkjet all-in-one offers the convenience of Web connectivity, but both business and home users will prefer the Epson WorkForce 840's reduced footprint and versatility.
Pros: The HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus has an ample feature set that includes AirPrint and ePrint functionality as well as print, scan, copy, and fax functions, automatic duplexing, and an autodocument feeder.
Cons: The printer is big, slow to power on and pricier than competing models, and a single 250-sheet input tray reduces its appeal for busy offices.
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 available. At the end of the day, it's always going to come down to what your specific needs are.

7 July 2011
Summary: HP's Web-enabled applications platform doesn't offer much in the way of extra value for business users at the moment, but as a medium-volume document printer the HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus is a good choice nonetheless. This inkjet multifunction printer is also able to print high quality A4 photos, albeit slowly.
Pros: Fast draft printing, high quality Normal mode, good paper tray size and feeding options
