I have a small home office and use this printer primarily for business type tasks. I replaced a Samsung All-in-One Laser printer with this HP All-in-One. I will also be writing reviews for other devices that I use for business travel and backcountry backpacking including: HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus AirPrint enabled printer, Solio Rocsta H1000 Solar Charger and Verizon MiFi 2200, five device 3G mobile broadband HotSpot. Click on the "See all my Reviews" link above.

=== Background Information ===

The primary features that were critical to my decision were AirPrint, duplex printing, and double sided copying. None of these features were available on the Samsung. HP is the only company that offers AirPrint. This allows printing directly from iOS4.2 enabled iPad, iPod Touch 4th Gen, and iPhone 4. ePrinting is not the same and I will discuss the advantages of both. HP also offers a free app for the iPod devices called iPrint. I will explore some of those cool features.

This review will also compare a few feature differences between the 8500A and the 8500A plus. I was very close to buying the 8500A, but opted for the improved features of the 8500A Plus. I hope this comparison will allow you to make a better choice too.

=== AirPrint compared to ePrint ===

Another feature unique to the Apple iPod Touch 4th Gen device, iPad, and iPhone 4 is AirPrint. It should be noted that the iPod Touch 3rd gen with iOS4.2 cannot AirPrint. One more reason that swayed my decision to buy the 4th Gen device. AirPrint is different from ePrinting. AirPrint allows you to print almost anything like, documents, PDFs, photos, Internet pages and Internet PDFs to an HP AirPrint enabled printer. You cannot ePrint Internet pages or Internet PDF files. AirPrinting occurs instantly.

This printer is awesome! It is a huge upgrade from our old one. It is extremely easy to set up. The printer basically has it's own e-mail address, so anything you can attach to an email, including pdfs, word, & xcel, etc. can be sent directly to your printer. No adding the printer to the network for every pc that will print on it.

This means you can send things from any computer, iPod, iPad device that has email function. I can prepare documents from anywhere in the world, email them to my printer, & they're sitting in the tray when I get to the office.

It is a standalone machine, meaning you can scan things directly onto a jump drive...you dont need to route it through your computer first, which is great when I'm in a hurry.

Highly recommended, & very easy to use.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Can you fall in love with a printer? I just did (and NO, I am not associated with HP. I'm just a small business owner who does quite a lot of printing! For the past couple of years, I've been using the HP Photosmart (3200 series) and this one is such a huge improvement I can't even begin to count the ways!

For one thing, it has this sleek state-of-the-art look, with an intelligently-positioned color touchscreen panel that reminds me of a GPS. It's highly intuitive and easy to use. There are plenty of choices, including work smart tips, eco tips, and digital office tips. There's even a fax set up and wireless setup wizard to walk you through those set-ups as well.

It took me over an hour to set up the printer, wait for it to calibrate, and install the software. Most of it was time spent sitting around, waiting for the printing set-up to go through its paces. I'm on a Mac, and one frustrating thing was that the installation crashed half-way through; I'm not sure whether this was HP or Mac or a combination, but it did require extra time. I did call HP Tech Support once -- midday Friday -- and was able to get through to a technician almost immediately. He was very helpful and walked me through some necessary steps to get the printer up and running.

But I considered that a small glitch. Once I did get it installed, I was immensely rewarded. The color and text are excellent, very crisp, the print speed is lightning-fast, and the machine (to my mind) is NOT loud, but rather, efficient and relatively quiet. It immediately began copying and printing to my heart's delight...no paper jams, no error messages, no hassles. The photos and graphics looked quite natural to me; I would have no trouble forwarding a printed piece along to a client.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )

I'm a home office user who earns a living out of a room in my house. This product - an ink jet color printer, scanner, copier, fax which can be shared on a wireless network - is marketed by HP with the idea that an ink jet printer is more economical for someone like me than a color laser for color printing. This is a questionable premise. First, I don't need much color printing at all; I produce mostly black-and-white text documents. Second, all ink jet printers are finicky; for one thing they must be used on a regular basis or the ink cartridges will jam up; they perform best in environments where they are used for color every day. (Even Consumer Reports fails to properly test for this - they just bang out pages until the ink runs dry - which is not the way most people use inkjets.) They require special expensive paper for best quality color printing. And the consumables! Ink jet manufacturers such as HP and Epson put these printers out there - virtually give them away - primarily as a tool to sell their cartridges, and they program the machines with marketing tricks; if one of the inks is low - say the yellow one, because you haven't printed yellow in a while - the printer will not print even though you need black only. (To be sure I was correct on this point I checked, and in an email to me, HP verified this remains true for this specific model.) So my office use would stop dead until I go out and buy color cartridges that I may not even need to use, except to unlock the printer! It's like having a little HP salesman sitting in my corner, furrowing his tiny brow all day with creative ideas how to get me to buy more stuff. And he has a internet connection back to the home office! If I allow him, he will monitor my ink levels and ship me ink without even asking!
