Hewlett Packard K8600 Office Jet Pro Color Printer
K. Sumner, Amazon
12 October 2012
Summary: So far so good. Arrived quickly, easy to set up. Printing good quality and no issues with the paper feed. We had one, same model, in the past and it lasted us about 7 years which is why we purchased a new one. The paper feed sensor went bad on the old one. I would purchase again and recommend it.
Summary: We are a company who has several color inkjet printers. It gets to be such a hassle when you have to stock so many different ink cartridges, so we have tried to centralize on models that take the same ink cartridge. We had one of our printers die and we were looking high and low for a printer that would still take an 88 color cartridge. We found this one on Amazon.com and we are very happy with it.
Pros: It prints text fast, nearly as fast as our laser jet when in draft mode and draft mode (black and white) text is close to the the "normal" print quallty. In addition to photos, it is great for graphs and charts for business meetings.
Cons: It takes a few more seconds to change paper than some other printers, but unless you change or add paper many times a day that is not significant. One thing not mentioned is it takes about 60 seconds to begin printing after you send a file to it.
Summary: Although I wasn't expecting it for a couple more days, the printer arrived a day after I ordered it, just before the weekend. Within 20 minutes I had it unpacked and hooked up (don't forget the cable). After the printer went through its self-diagnostic test, I started printing Tabloid-size sheets which came out faster than my old A4 size printer. Love it!
