HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus e-All-in-One (A910g) review: HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus e-All-in-One (A910g)

 

HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus e-All-in-One (A910g)

The ; has an ample feature set that includes AirPrint and ePrint functionality as well as print, scan, copy, and fax functions, automatic duplexing, and an autodocument feeder.

The printer is big, slow to power on and pricier than competing models, and a single 250-sheet input tray reduces its appeal for busy offices.

The HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus inkjet all-in-one offers the convenience of Web connectivity, but both business and home users will prefer the Epson WorkForce 840's reduced footprint and versatility.

HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus e-All-in-One A910g

 

Design and features Like Johnny Cash, the HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus comes dressed in black. Its look suits both home and office settings, though you'll have to clear some room for it. It's big and bulky, weighing a hefty 28 pounds and measuring 20...

HP OfficeJet Pro 8500A Plus Review - PCWorld

 

The HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus color inkjet multifunction printer (for printing, copying, scanning, and faxing) may look expensive at $300 (as of November 17, 2010), but you get a lot for the money. It's a comprehensive small-office machine with...

Cheap inks

Color scans tend to look murky

Touch-sensitive controls, cheap inks, and a legal-size scanner raise this MFP above the competition.

HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus e-All-in-One

 

The 8500A Plus prints, scans, copies, and faxes. It can scan to a PC, memory card, network folder, or e-mail. It can act as a standalone printer, printing photos from memory cards, USB keys, and PictBridge cameras as well as content from the Web using...

Good business printing speed. A wealth of MFP and ePrint features. Good paper capacity. Multiple connectivity options. Able to print from external devices

Unexceptional output quality, with photos a bit below par. Touch pad could be more responsive

The HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus e-All-in-One is a solid choice as a small-office MFP, with a good feature set, speed, and paper capacity.

HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus

 

The OfficeJet Pro 8500A Plus comes from HP's business range and packs six individual ink tanks and an asking price of US $400

While the HP is a pricey proposition you’re essentially getting an inkjet that performs as fast, if not faster, than entry-level colour lasers.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8500A Plus Review

 

A printer with an App Store.

Web apps, an email address, AirPrint and direct scanning and emailing of documents

Paper handling for non A4 sized papers

Alternatively, the HP OfficeJet Pro 8500A Plus also has a web server built-in and you can access that through almost any modern browser. The web server is quite rich in functionality allowing you to scan and fax documents as well as check supply levels...

Review: HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus multifunction printer

 

Touch-sensitive controls, inexpensive inks, and a legal-size scanner raise this MFP above the competition.

The shiny, all-black Officejet Pro 8500a Plus might look a bit like something out of a sci-fi flick, but there's nothing alien about using it. The entire control panel, from the large, 2.4-inch color LCD to the surrounding controls (which light up only...

Multifunction Printer Review: HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus

 

Is the HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus e-All-in-One going to meet every potential user's needs? Of course not ... but then no such device ever could. While we'd personally prefer having a second tray and would likely choose to spend $70 more for the 8500A...

HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus

 

With both Pro and Plus in its name, you'd expect the HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus e-All-in-One to bring a lot to the table. Indeed, it has a very good feature set for a small-office multifunction printer (MFP), including ePrint and Web App...

Good business printing speed. A wealth of MFP and ePrint features. Good paper capacity. Multiple connectivity options. Able to print from external devices

Unexceptional output quality, with photos a bit below par. Touch pad could be more responsive

HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus multifunction inkjet printer

 

HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus review: This inkjet printer from HP produces A4 documents and photos quickly

Fast draft printing, high quality Normal mode, good paper tray size and feeding options

Few ePrint apps for businesses

HP's Web-enabled applications platform doesn't offer much in the way of extra value for business users at the moment, but as a medium-volume document printer the HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus is a good choice nonetheless. This inkjet multifunction...
