Customer Reviews

On phone, HP tech support tried for an hour, no success, said to return unit.
Gary F. Auclair
Apparently, even when printing black and white, the printer uses a tiny amount of color ink each time to keep those print heads from drying out.
Roaming Entrepreneur
It cleans the print heads every time I turn it on and now is in a cycle of cleaning printheads repeatedly every 10 printed pages.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I thought I would make what is normally the conclusion the beginning section because not everyone may have the time or the disposition to go through all these paragraphs unless actually interested in making a purchase. I am providing more detail that should support my conclusions AFTER the evaluation section.

The reviewed unit meets the claim of it being a all-in-one solution. While it is not likely that any individual user would take advantage of all its features on a regular basis, it is reassuring to know that the features are there. The supplied software and the printer's own console interface allow for a tremenduous amount of flexibility and customization. Some of the more advanced features will require an above-average level of computer expertise but, even without a lot of customization, this will be a useful, worthy printing/faxing/copying/scanning appliance.

While the superior quality of output would make this printer a good 'small office' candidate, its speed would probably disqualify it if the small office was doing any significant amount printing. I provided some personal benchmarks so that any prospective small business buyer could decide. As a 'home' printer, this comes as close to perfect as they come. I will be using it as a home printer so please do interpret my rating within that context.

A minor observation regarding 'design'. I found it interesting that some of the functions available on the touch screen are duplicated on physical buttons on the printer's console. This was striking because I actually saw this model for sale at New York's Fifth Ave. Apple store. It immediately occured to me that an Apple designer would have none of those buttons if allowed to redesign the product.

Recent reviews of the HP OfficeJet Pro 8500 Wireless were critical of noise, vibration, and ink usage. Here are what I have discovered since installing this printer.
1. On most surfaces the noise from the printer is minimal. Movement of the plastic gears on HP, Canon, and Epson are not silent. Perhaps newer versions of the 8500 by HP will address this minor concern.
2. The printer vibrates slightly compared to a laser printer, but not to the extent that it is objectionable. Perhaps HP can reduce or eliminate this in future models but probably by increasing the weight of the printer. Most users, I suggest, would not want a heavier printer.
3. Ink usage is part of the printer expense "game" but with HP you can continue to print in B&W even if any or all of the color cartridges are empty [Verified by HP Support] That may not be the case with some recent offerings from Epson or Canon, although I personally prefer Espon and Canon printers for color prints.
4. The ink cartridges are dated, but they will continue to function even after the "expiration" date. HP prints a date on the ink package, but it does not prevent the cartridge from working. As a matter of fact, ink will remain usable in a SEALED packet for an extended period without concern. This date code is not a rip-off by HP anymore than other companies who print a freshness date.
5. It is certainly less expensive to order color prints online than to purchase OEM ink and paper. For those with a digital camera who need a quick print now and then the quality of the HP is excellent.
6. Setup is easy. I would only add a note to the directions for Step 7 to input your choice of language and then follow the touch screen directions as the printer processes alignment.

I've had this printer for a week. While it has worked, it has seemed to work well. Print quality is good, fax and copy are nice. I haven't used the scanner. I was a little annoyed by the set-up and lack of a manual, but it went okay. It's a complicated product, so you really need a manual.

After one week and about 20 pages, one of the printheads failed. I tried an online support chat. The person was unhelpful and condescending. The chat lasted an hour. He kept repeating questions and implying that I did not know what I was doing. First, he was flustered that I could not print a test page. Told me to consult the manual if I was unable to understand his instructions. I would presume that would be the manual that does not come with the product. Of course, a printer will not print anything if the printhead does not work.

Then, he had me do a couple of different resets. That didn't work. He didn't know what to do. I suggested that maybe the printhead really was faulty. He disagreed. They don't go bad on new printers. The problem is firmware or I don't know how to operate. He told me to wait a few minutes while he researched. Then, he told me to clean the electrical contacts between printer and printhead. That did not fix the problem. Again, he put me on hold -- so to speak. Finally, he said the printhead had to be replaced, but to do this, I had to call HP by phone. He gave me ticket number.

I call HP and wait about 30 minutes. I give ticket number. It is blank. I explain problem. I am told to repeat same steps as before. I decline. I am told that they cannot help me unless I reset printer, do semi-full reset, and clean printhead. I again decline and ask for supervisor. I'm put on hold.
