HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-in-One Printer

 

Welcome touches for the HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-In-One Printer include a 250-sheet input capacity and duplex printing as standard.

Notably high-quality graphics. Prints, scans, faxes over network. Standalone copier and fax. Ethernet and WiFi.

Doesn't always work as expected (for example, sending scans to Outlook, even when set to use Windows Mail).

HP Officejet 6500 Wireless (E709n) inkjet multifunction

 

HP's mid-range inkjet multifunction produces decent quality documents

Wi-Fi connectivity, good quality printed documents

Confusing control panel, scans are poor quality, expensive consumables

HP's attempt to compete with budget lasers hasn't been completely successful with the Officejet 6500 Wireless (E709n), but this inkjet multifunction can still print good quality documents.
