Officejet Pro K8600DN

 

The HP Officejet Pro K8600dn color inkjet printer's wide-format capability (it can print on tabloid and B-size media) means that you can print larger documents from your desktop. The product also supports the business world's "faster, cheaper" mantra,...

Wide-format capability Automatic duplexer

Expensive Clunky input and output trays

For many offices, the Officejet Pro K8600dn would be overkill. Groups who need to stretch their printing capabilities will find this machine a capable device. Its quality isn't quite good enough to replace the high-end color lasers that larger graphics...

Fast, wide-format capability, automatic duplexer

Expensive, clunky input and output trays

It won't replace your graphics department's high-end colour laser printer, but for drafts and for other kinds of office users it's worth considering.

GREAT bank for the buck

 

Very happy with this purchase.

Easy networking, excellent prints of good or bad paper - have had people ask where I have my 8x10's done. Printing on paper this size for such a little investment is very cool. The print to edge feature ROCKS! Cost of supplies from what I looked at...

It is big, and requires more space behind it to use the flat tray for card stock or the double sided printing attachment. Have to expect that to get the functionality. You have to get big paper in the tray exactly right or it will jam. Once you have...

A Bit High for the price

 

A+ computer consultant: Has the same HP paper jam messages (for no apparent reason) that we've grown to love....check everything 3 times then reboot. Color print at BEST levels is acceptable but not exceptional. (my epson is better at 1/3 the cost. I...

HP color inkjet printer which handles larger formats, is less expensive to operate than a laser with compairable output. Handles thicker material (card stock) and numerous paper sizes (post card to A3). Full duplex

Very large printer, I mean you expect that for it's capability to print large formats but when you get the box, you'll think they shipped you a small refrigerator or something. (So plan on having space). Full duplex means the printer can do this, but...

Quantity, not quality

HP OfficeJet Pro K8600dn

 

Easy set up process. Quality seems pretty good on quality ink jet paper. Not too saturated either.

Paper tray is a little confusing and as you cant remove it, it's a little hard to see if you have located the paper far enough into the machine or not
