Summary: I basically bought this one because I had the same model (just a bit earlier version, an A909A; this is an A910) that suddenly "crashed" on me and I had just bought ink for it. I was not in the position to upgrade at this time.
Summary: Updated on 2012.12.05 I have had this printer for six months now. Still pretty good. There has been issues with the paper pickup mechanism in the printer. It sometimes goes into hose mode and will not pick up paper. Regardsless.
Summary: I have a lot of recipe and knitting magazines that were taking up far too much space. Since I'd paid quite a lot of money over the years for the information contained in these magazines, I didn't want to throw them out without somehow saving the information.
Summary: The 8500A Plus is an excellent application for a home printer. It has all the bells and whistles along with superb support that I received from the HP Techs. The only difficulty I encountered was trying to get the fax setup so that I could continue to have my voicemail phone service.
