Summary: I was looking for printers at the retail stores. They all seemed so pricey and had their flaws. I bought a HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 because a website had glowing reviews on its photo printing quality. So I paid big bucks to get the new model. The photo printing was a flop.
Summary: This is a terrific little printer. Takes up minimal space, and if I hadn't accidentally dropped the one I had before (disengaged something that I couldn't repair myself) I would still be using the first one after several years. I know it's reliable, and ink cartridges last a long time.
Summary: I had this same printer that was 6 years old. I print app. 4 blacks and 2 color cartridges every 6 months and usually bought ink in that quantity. Well, I just got an order and the old printer quit. So waying my options I found this new old stock of the same model.
Great Printer for Everyday Needs (Kids school papers, Airline boarding passes, coupons, etc.)

Summary: Ordered this printer to replace an older model that we had for over 6 years. We really liked the printer because it was easy to use and the color printing is not bad for our everyday needs. This model is just as good as the 1600 & it came with a set of ink cartridges.
