HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus

 

When you think of a printer, Hewlett Packard or HP is definitely one of the first names to strike your mind. HP has come a long way in catering to all our printing needs in terms of both inkjet and laser printers. This time, HP has offered its small...

With a price tag of Rs. 20,999 and featuring laser-like print quality, speedy document printing with duplex capabilities, web options, wireless connectivity and a built-in fax, we would definitely recommend one of these units in a medium-sized business...

HP Officejet Pro 8600 e-All-in-One

 

Editor's Note: This review contains text from our reviews of the step-up models in the same line: the HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus and the HP Officejet Pro 8600 Premium .

The HP Officejet Pro 8600 e-All-in-One is ready for high-volume printing needs with an ample 250-sheet paper input capacity, autoduplexing, cloud printing, and a host of versatile connectivity options.

The autodocument feeder can't duplex double-sided originals for scanning and the smaller touch screen requires more patience to operate than the 8600 Plus and 8600 Premium.

The Officejet Pro 8600 anchors HP's flagship printing line with capable performance, ample connectivity options, and enough cloud-printing tools to ensure its long-term usefulness.

HP Officejet Pro 8600 Premium e-All-in-One

 

Editors' note: The HP Officejet Pro 8600 Premium's hardware specs are identical to the ones on the HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus with the addition of an extra 250-sheet paper tray (for a total of 500), an extra set of inks, and a set of HP Glossy Photo...

The HP Officejet 8600 Plus prints professional-quality photos and documents quickly with versatile connectivity options and robust features like an auto-duplexer, cloud printing, and a legal-size scanning bay.

The touch screen requires aggressive finger presses to actuate the display functions, and there's no way to calibrate its sensitivity.

If you can find a desk to accommodate its large size, the HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus all-in-one printer serves up top-shelf output quality at rapid print speeds, suitable for offices, home users, and photo enthusiasts hunting for an upgrade.

The $299 HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus e-All-in-One printer is an updated version of the Pro 8500A Plus multifunction CNET reviewed last year. The flagship of HP's workcentric inkjet line gets a performance makeover from the inside out, with improvements...

HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus e-All-in-One Printer review: Features and Speed Aplenty

 

In a world filled with cheap but underpowered inkjet multifunction printers (MFPs), using the HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus is a pleasant departure. One of the most competent MFPs for the price ($300 as of 12/05/2011), it lacks nothing in its features, is...

Very fast ; Legal-size scanner platen ; Cheap ink

Pale graphics on plain paper at default settings

This fast color inkjet MFP is feature-complete, cheap to operate, and supports legal-sized paper throughout.

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...

If there's an important feature you might want in an office color multi-function printer (MFP) that you won't find in the 8600 Plus, I don't know what it could be.

Fast. High-quality output. Duplexes. Duplexing automatic document feeder. Legal-size flatbed. Prints through cloud

A little larger than most inkjet MFPs

The HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus e-All-in-One offers nearly any feature you might want for a micro, small, or busy home office, including fast speed and high quality output.

Expert review by:

HP Officejet Pro 8600 e-All-in-One

 

Like the 8600 Plus, the 8600 is aimed primarily at micro or small offices or at home offices with relatively heavy-duty print needs. It's not surprising, then, that it offers all the same basics. It prints, scans, and faxes; works as a standalone...

Fast. Duplexer for printing on both sides of a page. Prints through the cloud

A little larger than most inkjet MFPs. Below-par graphics and photos

The HP Officejet Pro 8600 e-All-in-One inkjet MFP offers most of the features you might want in a micro, small, or busy home office, but comes up short on graphic and photo output quality.

HP Officejet 8600

 

The HP Officejet 8600 is an office printer through and through.

Fast prints.; Several ink cartridges.; Easy to hook up to network

Bad detail

As a strict office printer, the HP Officejet 8600 does a fantastic job of churning out print jobs like nobody’s business, but the quality is a little bit lacking. For documents, that’s totally fine, but don’t expect your pictures or graphics to jump of...
