Network Communication Errors!!

UnSatisfied Customer, Office Depot
1 April 2014
  • Excerpt: We purchased this printer as our main printer for our company. We use it a lot for printing, scanning, multiple faxes, etc. We recently upgraded from the 8500 to this model because of the feeder breaking on the 8500.

It's great... for 20lb paper.

Nathan B., Newegg
10 March 2014
  • Summary: Scanner works. Not the sharpest I've seen. Beware of the wireless wakeup. It doesn't always like to turn back on from a sleep state. I've only had an issue with it like 3-4 times but I usually hit power first just in case. The ability to download apps etc.
  • Pros: It's quick (as long as it picks up the sheet) and easy on the ink. Photo quality is passable but it has poor halftones and you'll see a lot of pixelation in shading. Don't expect it to make pretty pictures compared to other contemporary models. Basic text on standard 20lb is pretty good.
  • Cons: It's a monster, size-wise. That isn't an issue for me but may be for some. The duplexer is easy to insert with an inproper alignment which will cause everything that goes through it to crumple and jam. It won't pick up cardstock. I'm using a 65# astroparche and it just won't do it. I've done all ...

It works

DJ, Office Depot
13 January 2014
  • Excerpt: It works well for office documents, and prints fast. The wireless works ok, except that the scan feature doesn't work without the usb to my desktop. When I first got it the software I installed for it on my desktop interfered with my anti-virus software and neither was working properly for a while,...

Dissappointing Printer

Wendy K., Newegg
2 December 2013
  • Pros: Long lasting ink cartridges Fast printing High paper capacity
  • Cons: Does not print on heavy card stock or other heavy paper - who ever heard of that?! I use my printer to make visual aids for my class and have owned many HP printers, but, never thought to ask if this higher end printer prints on heavy card stock before purchasing. I will need to purchase a differ...

For the high tech person

music, Office Depot
23 November 2013
  • Excerpt: this has so many things that it can do, and it is a little difficult to set up and learn how to use. Printing is very good, copying seems a little confusing, as the ink levels need adjusting (never have had this problem with any other printer), and when faxing it always prints out an entire page of...
  • Pros: Good Value, Fast
  • Cons: Difficult to Set Up, Difficult to Use

Short Lifespan

Harp, Office Depot
31 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I really loved this printer until it died after only 1 1/2 years. It was easy to use, had good quality printing and held lots of paper. Never had a paper jam and it accepted labels and photo paper without a problem. Unfortunately, it didn't last very long.
  • Pros: Easy to Use
  • Cons: short life

I really wanted to love this printer

Amazon
20 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought my HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 a little over a year ago - 31 days more than a year ago I was reminded when I called about my failed print head. I really did like this multifunction machine, but I think it should last a little longer before the print head craps out.
