Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

Whether it is scanning, copying faxing or printing, this printer is uniformly poor.
Burt A. Chojnowski
"Replace empty yellow ink cartridge. Replace with a new HP yellow ink cartridge. The printer will only print after the cartridge is replaced."
TRK
And the bloatware can be avoided by using the Vista or Windows 7 drivers without the software.

I have been looking for a networked color laser printer suitable for home and small office use for some time. Then I received an ad for this printer. I was convinced to try it because of the new ink technology, the relatively low cost of replacement ink cartridges and the duplex printing capability. So far I've been completely satisfied. It's easily fast enough for my use. Print quality is high. It seems to have good color accuracy; I've printed a couple of photos on high quality photo paper and been quite pleased. It was a breeze to install (we are a Mac household). The scan and copy functions are easy to use. Duplex printing is slow but adequate for the times it is used. I've yet to have to replace a cartridge so I can't speak to the cost per page of printing.

Note that ink for this printer will set you back One Hundred and fourteen dollars!!!

Before purchasing the Officejet 8500, be aware that there appears to be compatibility issues with the current drivers (as of 5/5/2009) and Windows XP. Basically, the user gets the following error: "The printer has not yet responded, but the Microsoft Office program may be able to proceed without printer information". I have spent hours on the phone with their India-based tech support and with their chat technical support. Sadly, HP provides the worst technical support that I have ever experienced. The telephone reps barely speak English and the chat reps serve multiple customers at the same time, leading to long delays between their responses. Moreover, I have been cut off during chat sessions five times, which leads me to believe it is intentional as this always seems to happen when I attempt to corner them on difficult questions. Before getting cut off today (5/5/2009) the chat technical support rep acknowledged that there are known incompatibilities between the drivers and Windows XP. Presumably, this means the software was written for Vista.

Also be aware of the astronomical ink cartridge prices that will set you back half the cost of a new printer.

This is the third HP multifunction printer I have purchased. Historically, I have purchased top-of-the-line models from the HP Officejet line for my home office. Generally, I have been rather pleased and impressed with their ability to work for years with few paper jams, either in the printer or document feeder. My primary complaints with HP and these printers are twofold: 1) the ink prices are exorbitant (i.e. pay as you go) and 2) HP has atrocious tech support.

In our small office we print over 5000 sheets a month and share the printer over a USB switch with 4 of us. We use it also for scanning and sending out customer documents. Speed for faxing and scanning was important as we often scan and fax 20 to 40 pgs.

The price per page was excellent due to the oversized ink cartridges printing 2 or 3 times the number of pages as we had previously obtained with other HP ink jets. For every day printing we have further cut printing costs by 75% by using refilled cartiridges from ebay. Overall the best color printer we have purchased in the last 4 years.

Only drawback that we have found is that for pdf scanning, a direct usb connection to a PC is required. Bottom line: Its got speed and the initial price is higher, but with much lower ink costs, payback is in a couple of months.

I've owned various HP inkjet and laser printers since 1984. Once got an old LaserJet II from eBay that had an asset tag from the City of Beverly Hills for $125 that ran for 3 years after I replaced the paper pickup clutch. (I'm a nerd...I work on EVERYTHING I own!)

A couple of years ago, I got a Lexmark All-In-One, new, at Target, for $25 on sale. Seemed a no-brainer until I realized it was an ink sucking nightmare. Photo quality was below average as well, even with "premium" papers. It finally died 2 months ago and I started shopping for a new AIO printer.

Found the OfficeJet 8500 at Office Depot on sale and paid $199, quite a bit less than the MSRP. Got a 25% discount on the 940XL cartridges, and went home to install the printer. Took less than 30 minutes to unbox, attach to the house network, and install the drivers on 2 PCs. (both Windows XP, SP3) The test pages looked good, but one of my needs was to be able to print 8x10 photos I use for my acting auditions. I'm usually told to bring 2 headshots and a resume, which translates to $6-7 per audition, if I get prints from CVS or Wal-Mart self-service kiosks. That doesn't include driving and my time.

So, the first thing I sent to the printer after setup and alignment completed was a hi-res color headshot from my portfolio. WOW! I use HP and Kodak papers as a rule, but NEVER got anything this excellent from the Lexmark. In fact, a side-by-side comparison with prints from the pro machine at CVS were identical. AND, the ink doesn't smudge a bit.

Text printing is equally impressive. Crisp, clean, and no jaggies, even with small point sizes using average 20lb. stock. Made perfect copies of some legal documents I needed and sent a fax to a business associate as well with ZERO problems.
