HP Officejet 6500

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)

The HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-In-One Printer offers lots of features for a small or home office, but stubs its toe on some software issues.
