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.

HP Officejet K8600

 

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

Quetioning my buying

 

Support has slipped. Need somone not reading from a script!

The printer is inexpensive with good print quality

HP has great printing, but not software

 

Printing quality is great and awsome, also is cheaper than office max 100 bucks. NEWEGG ROCKS

HP Software is suck, Cannot make custom type of paper print out

LEMON

 

when it prints it prints well. Its output on draft is good

I must have gotten a lemon. I was told by hp tech support that they were having issues with this model and that a batch of them being made at one factory had several defects. They then sent me a new one. I had to pay 30 bucks to have it sent to me rush...

A good choice

 

Not needing ten or twenty year archival quality prints I opted for a CISS (continuous ink supply system) The ink quality is excellent on the high gloss posters and tabloid books I print.

It does a fast job printing two sided tabloid sheets. The duplex attachment does a great job and is worth the extra money. The first page loads a little slowly, but the rest of the print run is very fast

It uses a lot of ink

If you need big prints

 

Wish it printed faster than it does. My old Canon i860 was a much faster printer for some reason.

Output is excellent. Colors are very true and if you need tabloid size printer this one fits the bill nicely. This is the version without the RJ45 port, so I made the connection by USB to CAT-5 extension

Big! Surprisingly so. Make sure you have enough room for this thing. Ink tanks run dry faster than their large sizes would indicate
