Summary: The HP Pro 8500A is a good solid system, I just wish the paper feed tray did not jut out from the side and fitted flush to the case in order to leave more shelf space. it is kind of odd being oriented 90 degrees off set from the top copier feed tray direction.
Summary: This is a great printer. Touch pad works great. Easy to use. Can only find two faults with ity after 4 months of use. 1. The machine could not read my memory card from my camera so I had to buy a memory card reader. No big deal. My other minor complaint is that I do a lot of enlarging which the machine is certainly capable of, but I must say that it is slow to change settings when compared to past printers that I have had. All in all, I am very happy with it.
Summary: This was a replacement for my previous HP all-in-one printer. It's an excellent printer and works very well. It also has air printing capability which is great since much of my work is done wirelessly. My only complaint about it is the cost of ink. I recently replaced all the cartridges and the best price I got was $88 delivered.
Summary: Bottom line is this is a good printer, great scanner, good copier, and very very easy to set up and use on a network, even if you don't hook it up to a computer in your place. Ink is cheaper per ounce than most HP printers, but still not on the level of like a laser printer. But I guess that's always going to be true of inkjets. When you consider that, this is a pretty good deal.
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. The printer is, so far, reliable (I bought a used one) and the videos that teach you how to change ink, printheads, etc. (new feature from the printer that this one replaced), are helpful.
Summary: This was my first big kid printer after using cheap Epson all-in-one photo printers for years. I intended to use it for work and actually only plugged it in for the first time about eight months after bringing it home, using it for a large contract job that involved printing about 15,000 sheets in three months. It fared surprisingly well, though I wonder how much life it really has left. I bought it as a display model and got a bunch of freebies with it.
