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.
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 is an excellent "All in One" printer. The print speed is much better than most others. Quality is good as well. You have to hunt for this particular model as there are other HP "All in One's" that sound like this one but are not. This is my second one. The original is still inservice at my shop.
Summary: This printer is just great. Will do photos, large & small. Jams easy to remove. The all is copy, fax, scan, & print. Scanning on a Mac use the Apple preview program, not the HP program for best results. Printing with a Mac. HP has a Widget which indicates ink levels. Will print with Windows as well. (I have Windows installed on the Mac). Print quality: Almost as good as laser quality. With this product keep extra cartridges on. Especially Black & Yellow.
Summary: I use this printer at work and LOVE it. I wish I had it at home! Sometimes I make 50-300 copies of flyers, etc. at work and this does a great job. I love the option (like most printers have) of draft, normal, or best which adjusts the quality of print job. When I first started my job 1.5 years ago, we were paying top dollar for nice flyers and also for company letterhead.
Laser VS OfficeJet... HP OfficeJet Pro 8500A is MY choice!

Summary: This is comparable to a laser printer for its speed (OK, so not quite as fast, but still...), as a matter of fact, running a business that requires a LOT of printing, for the money, this is by far MUCH better, since the ink is so much cheaper than toner for a laser printer. In addition, I also get color printing without having to spend a fortune!
Summary: I am a very big fan of Hewett Packard, so it was easy to upgrade my former printer to this one and it enabled me to use all those 940 cartridges I have left over. Hewett Packard products are excellent to have so many features and options that make both business and personal transactions easier.
Summary: This is a good printer. I love the ease of use and the efficient ink use. Do not use refilled ink jet cartridges as it won't see that it has full cartridges and my printer stopped printing and even ruined the print heads. Wireless printing works great along with scanning, faxing, etc.
Summary: This is the best all-in-one printer I have had. I have had no issues to date. It is great to not have to go into the office to get things done. I can do it right from my home office without having to settle for a reduction in quality.
