Summary: Have had this printer about four years and it has been heavily used. Everything about this printer is excellent. Ink is relatively inexpensive with the XL cartridges and sales/rewards. Output is beautiful. However, the printer developed a problem with the print heads and I thought it was finished. Print heads list for $130 for the pair so I figured a new printer was a better option.
I am beyond upset and disappointed with this printer

Summary: I am beyond upset and disappointed with this printer. It was working UNTIL the one year mark, when all of a sudden I got a paper jam notification. There is absolutely no paper jammed in the printer. Every time it attempts to restart it I hear a clicking sound on the left side and then the "paper jam" notification pops up. I have called HP and they are NO HELP, then I turned to youtube and forums where I see that many of us are having the same problem!
Summary: I HAVE HAD A HP OFFICEJET PRO 8500A PLUS FOR 3 YEARS LOVE IT NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT HAVE PRINTED OVER 7000 PAGES WITH IT HUNDREDS OF FAXES TOUCH SCREEN WORKS GREAT OR YOU CAN JUST USE YOUR PC YOU CAN DO ANYTHING WITH IT SOUNDS LIKE A USER PROBLEM GOOD LUCK TO THE ONES HEAVING PROBLEMS HAVE A BLESSED DAY
Summary: This printer has caused me nothing but paper, ink and patience. It will not print clearly in color or black and white even after going through many many self "head cleaning" and "alignment" checks. Such a colossal waste of money - steer clear!
Summary: Bought this printer as a replacement for an exhausted HP photo printer we'd had that did an amazing job. We thought the added scanning and e-print capacities would be helpful. Less than a year after buying it (and with pretty minimal use because of the poor print quality), it needs repair. The print head needs to be replaced. Further, this thing burns through ink like no printer I've ever seen.
I shopped around carefully before purchasing this so am very disappointed.

Summary: We've had innumerable problems with this printer. First it had a firmware problem that made it not wake up properly from its power saver mode. As a result it, required rebooting (in person) before printing remotely, which defeats the purpose of printing remotely. An auto-update appears to have fixed this after we had it for about a year and a half. About two and a half years in, the copier and scanner functions stopped working.
