HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-All-in-One

 

This glossy black MFP with a gently curving frame measures 18.7 by 17.7 by 10.2 inches (HWD) and weighs 18.2 pounds. A 250-sheet input tray (which fits up to legal-size paper) is ample for micro or home offices (or a home setting), and outstrips many...

Automatic duplexer. Easy setup and usable interface. HP Web apps and ePrint functionality

Though solid, its speed and output quality were unexceptional. No slot for USB key

The HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-All-in-One is a well-rounded inkjet MFP, combining a wide range of features (like wireless printing) and good paper handling with solid text and image quality.

HP Officejet 6500A Plus Review

 

The HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-All-in-One retails for a price of Rs. 11,999. For that price, it's a unique MFD, offering a wide range of functions, apart from solid performance and overall print quality. The Officejet 6500A Plus is easy to use and comes...

HP Officejet 6500A Plus

 

Watch the middle ones! The $199 HP Officejet 6500A could be considered the middle child of business-centric all-in-one (AIO) printers: Overachieving siblings might overshadow it, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have its sneaky strengths. It doesn't...

Handsome and well-built ; Easy to set up ; Built-in auto-duplexer and Wi-Fi ; Color touch screen

Mediocre photo prints ; Low suggested limit on monthly page output

The Officejet 6500A is a modest, though very good, all-in-one inkjet printer well-suited for small offices.

Review: HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-All-in-One MFP

 

If you're looking for an inkjet all-in-one that supports Apple's AirPrint and HP's ePrint services, the HP Officejet 6500A is worth a look, if only because they are so few and far between. The 6500A was an average performer in both print speeds and...

Setting up the Officejet 6500A Plus was a breeze. The four individual ink cartridges are easy to install and you can connect via USB 2.0, Wi-Fi, or wired ethernet. We ran into an issue where, when connected over USB, the printer would stop responding...

HP Officejet 6500A Plus review

 

HP's Officejet 6500A Plus is a more feature-rich version of the vanilla Officejet 6500A . It adds Wi-Fi support and a duplexer that allows you to automatically print on two sides of a page. Best of all, it will only cost you an extra tenner, as you can...

Loads of features for a low price; Great quality print outs; Touchscreen control; Wi-Fi; Duplex printing support.

Duplex printing is slightly slow.

HP's Officejet 6500A Plus is easy to recommend. Despite its low price tag, it offers loads of great features, delivers excellent printed results and is cheap to run. The only minor downside is that duplex printing is a little sluggish.

HP Officejet 6500A Plus

 

An all-singing all-in-one from HP, updating the machine it replaces with ePrint and reducing its price by over £50.

Generally good print speed, Fast WPS wireless setup, Downloadable print apps

Long wait for duplex pages, Over-bold text in copies, Easy-smudge finish

HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-All-in-One Printer review

 

The HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-All-in-One Printer is an inkjet multifunction printer with fax, scan, and copy capabilities. It features HP's ePrint remote printing and printing apps, and is one of the few printers to support Apple's iOS AirPrint...

The HP Officejet 6500A Plus e-All-in-One Printer was an average performer in both print speed and quality, with noticeably fuzzy edges in its text printing. However, if you’re looking for an inkjet all-in-one that supports Apple’s AirPrint and HP’s...
