Summary: I've had this printer for almost 3 years and have finally given up on it. The cartridge costs are high and HP forces you to replace them on a timed basis rather than on a usage basis so I've had to replace cartridges that are half full.
Summary: I got this printer in 2011 to replace a K550 which was a great printer, but, died in a shipping container... The 8000 as new, was a great printer, but, with with moderate printing for the past 3 years, it had gotten progressively more reluctant to print more than one page.
Summary: I paid good money for this, I researched it, I used reasonable criteria to make my selection, it should not have died after the modest amount of printing I did with it. The print heads are expensive and die quickly.
Works well, but expensive to operate; low price offset by very expensive ink

Summary: This is a printer for a home machine that never prints many copies, i.e. - a picture occasionally, or a color picture for a school report. The ink is EXPENSIVE and doesn't last long. Probably wouldn't recommend this to anyone who does moderate printing.
tired of unjamming, and paying for expensive ink replacements

Summary: Tonight, I am replacing my HP PRO 8000 after spending yet another night of unjamming my papers, I am finally giving up, I am buying another brand! I have tried to stay loyal to HP, but cant any longer! I love the quality, but at what expense? I am only using to keep a record of paying my bills!
Summary: cheap printer , but if you run out of 1 colored cartridge, it won't print at all, even if you want to print black and white. It's a design flaw, that's designed to make you spend more on hp ink cartridges. very, verrrrrry annoying. Won't do this again
Summary: I could not connect this printer to the wireless network despite the fact that I tried almost every approach recommended on HP website and on other help sites. When I called HP there were less than helpful. Person I talked to, did not have a clue about this product.
