Received as part of the Amazon Vine reviewer program, the HP Officejet Pro 8500A is a wireless, all-in-one (printer, fax, scanner, copier, web) office tool. It uses the current touchscreen technology to offer the user a way to fax, scan, copy and print without the use of a computer directly attached to it.
Once I unboxed this beast (it's quite a bit heavier and larger than my previous printer: HP Officejet 6310 All-in-One Printer), it took a few minutes to check the box contents and untape parts that were immobilized as part of packaging.
A very basic (10) step sheet with pictures and minimal directions directs you how to install the two print heads, four ink cartridges, the HP automatic two-sided printing accessory (duplexer) and load the paper. It also shows you for PC or Mac computers how to hook up the printer via a usb cord, ethernet (internet cord) or via a wireless home network (found in the Getting Started Guide).
Once you power up the printer it takes approximately 20 minutes to go through a series of checks prior to asking you if you want to 'update'. As I'd already established a wireless connection with the printer by following the prompts on the touchscreen and entering my home network's security code, I had it do an update which took about 5 minutes. All in all, the 25-30 minutes the all-in-one spent getting ready for use was no big deal. It took me about 45 minutes to get it set-up prior to that time, and I'm fairly savy about such things.Read more ›
The printer is big in size but it justifies that in robustness. It solid and fast.
The wireless works perfectly and now i can print from any laptop without cables (2 PCs and 1 Mac)
the Ethernet is a plus and used rarely when i have a lot of pages to print but so far i needed it only once.
I haven't tried using the USB since wireless is to good.
The printer is fast photocopy machine and works in both color and BW.
It prints on two sides which is excellent if you mind saving papers, not to mention its low usage of the toners.
The web interface was a bit tricky to setup but after that, I tried printing from the office and it scared the maid in the house as the printer started printing and she got scared and turned it off.
I don't use the fax option but its a plus option.
The printer has a touch control panel and can do most its configurations and functions without even using a pc or mac to control.
* The Speed is the biggest plus in this printer and the double sided printing is an very welcome.
* Wireless printing rocks and helps you put the printer in a remote room in the house or a under the stairs without looking obtrusive on the office desk.
* It has six toners and I haven't really measured the rate of printing per toner but will do that when i empty the first batch.
* touch control panel that saves you from using a pc
* works as an excellent photocopy and printer
* has a good storage compartment for like 100 pages.Read more ›
Setup involved eight steps which were pretty straightforward except for the fact that the printer heads were a little cumbersome to get in. However, the ink cartridges slid right in (simplest I've seen) so it will be a breeze to change ink cartridges. Installation went fairly smoothly. It took a little bit of time (about twenty minutes) but it is a wireless all-in-printer after all. In the past I've always had various problems when installing wireless all-in-printers (Canon Pixma MX860 all-in-one, HP Photosmart C6180 all-in-one, HP Officejet 7410). I've had to deal with faulty software, firewalls causing problems, or advertised features that were actually not present. That was not the case for this printer, except for the fact that the numerical keypad on the control panel did not work. This meant that I could not type in my encryption key. However, this printer features a WPS option, and my router had a WPS button (broadcasting the key), so I was able to complete the installation. I should add the LCD touch screen worked. It was just keypad.
I used HP 24/7 chat to contact technical support about the control panel. I was connected in 20 seconds and the tech support was efficient, free, courteous, and friendly. We just needed to verify that the panel was indeed broken. I have had good experience with HP customer and tech support before. Canon's tech support is better than that of Adobe, AT & T, and of course, much better than Microsoft and Comcast.Read more ›

HP purposefully sabotages their printers to not work at all if you use any 3rd party ink or printheads. Dishonest company. Don't give them your money.Published 11 months ago by Michael J. Garr
