HP Officejet Pro K8600

 

HP Officejet Pro K8600 wide format inkjet printer is high quality and backed by great customer support. See where it ranks at TopTenREVIEWS.

Hewlett-Packard provides fantastic customer support

This printer can only produce a 13 x 19" print. It is also very difficult to use

The HP Officejet Pro K8600 is difficult to use, but high-quality customer support will make it easier on you.

HP OfficeJet Pro K8600 A3+ Inkjet Printer

 

This wide carriage inkjet printer comes with a hefty premium over its A4 siblings.

With great looking color prints and accurately rendered delicate shades, this printer is capable of handling wider range of media in a cheaper price.

Lacklustre colour quality, but good speed and value for money make the K8600 a contender if you like blowing things up to A3 size

Sucks! Don't even look at it!

 

Even after I tried multiple things to get this printer working, it just did not want to print it's first test page. Keeps complaining that there is a paper jam. Took it back to the store and the representative could not believe me, so I told him to...

Nothing. Didn't even get to use it

Didn't even get to print my first test page and the printer complains about a paper jam. There is not paper jam! Checked, re-checked multiple times. Power OFF/ON. Hold this and that and nope, thing. I took it back for the store representative to try

Consumer review by: frajim123 (cnet.com)

It is a good printer

 

I print 500 newsletters 4 times per year. The text is good and the pictures are excellent but the ink usage is only fair. We used 4 sets of of ink cartridges for 500 11 x 17 four page newsletters with pictures. ( two 11 x 17 sheets folded)

In terms of speed and print quality, it is an effective printer for newsletters, photos in general use and graphics

My 8600 prints double sided but it creates a .75 margin on one end and it is slow ; It's largest weakness is the replacement of printheads that last about a year at a cost of $73 per printhead. There are two

Good print quality... IF YOU CAN GET IT TO WORK

 

Here's the bottom line. BUY SOMETHING ELSE. I read the other CNet reviews and I thought, "How bad could it be? It's an HP." Yeah, I should have listened.

Great print quality - better photos than Costco - and can handle a large variety of paper sizes

Major issues with paper feed mechanism - shows that it's out of paper when the tray is full - and the replacement product from HP service didn't fix the problem. No screen of any kind makes troubleshooting a pain
