HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-in-One

 

The 8500 comes in three variations. The Wireless model, which I reviewed, and the HP Officejet Pro 8500 Premier All-in-One ($499.99 direct) are identical, according to HP, except that the Premier model comes with an extra set of standard cyan, yellow,...

Extraordinarily fast for business applications. High-quality graphics and photos. Low cost per page

Relatively slow for photos. Text quality merely par for an inkjet

If you're thinking of moving up to a color laser all-in-one (AIO), be sure to check out the HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-in-One as well.

This all-in-one offers trouble-free operation, excellent ease of use, and low media cost for small workgroups.

Easy to use; Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and USB connectivity; automatic duplexing; inexpensive ownership costs; excellent touch-screen control panel

Pricey; tedious setup and installation procedure; bright but inaccurate color reproduction; boxy, stodgy design

The OfficeJet Pro 8500 is a no-nonsense, all-business device that will give excellent service to small-office and home-office workgroups. The initial purchase price is high, but low operating costs could make the 8500 ultimately cheaper than the...

TOP TEN REVIEWS - EXELLENCE

Expert review by:

HP Officejet Pro 8500A

 

The HP OfficeJet Pro 8500a is a great option for an all-in-one printer that has very good speed and print-quality results. The price for the unit is higher than similar models, but the overall quality is remarkable.

It's a relatively fast unit that produces high-quality black and color ink prints

It’s expensive, and the pages per minute rating doesn’t follow the International Organization for Standardization's requirements

Despite being a bit pricey, this printer's speed and overall print quality are very good.
