HP OfficeJet 6500 Wireless All-in-One

 

This small and home office multifunction inkjet is an affordable alternative to a laser printer.

The OfficeJet 6500 Wireless is a well-featured SOHO all-in-one machine and HP has obviously made real efforts to reduce the running costs. Print speeds actually approach manufacturer's claims and in the case of photo prints are unexpectedly quick. The...

HP Officejet 6500 Wireless review

 

In our speed tests, the HP Officejet 6500 Wireless printed plain text at a speed of 11.7 pages per minute (ppm), and its colour output was as fast as 3.2ppm - faster than average, though far short of HP's advertised engine speeds of 32ppm for...

The HP Officejet 6500 Wireless strikes an impressive balance of performance, ease of use, and features at an aggressive price. It's robust enough to support a small office with moderate output needs, and it's easy to install and use, with excellent...

HP OfficeJet 6500 Wireless all-in-one inkjet

 

HP has a product here which really should be able to swing small businesses towards inkjet multi-function printers.

The OfficeJet 6500 Wireless is a very well-balanced all-in-one. It has a strong feature set, including photo printing and full fax functionality, as well as fast document scanning using its ADF. Speeds are pretty much what it says on the box - unusual...

HP OfficeJet 6500 E709n Wireless

 

This is another HP OfficeJet that is predominately black with a white base and part of the sides; sadly it will never pass the lounge police. However as it is Ethernet/Wi-Fi/USB you could possibly hide it in a cupboard, the latter is also a good idea...

The HP Officejet 6500 is 46x42x24cm. It is stated to give professional colour for 40% less than a laser this is energy and cost per page, but read the HP site for how that is calculated. There are 36 buttons on the front sloping edge of the unit...

HP - Officejet 6500

 

HP made a big song and dance about the low running costs of its Officejet Pro 8500, which we looked at recently. However, it also carried a fairly hefty £299 price tag. The new Officejet 6500 ...

With its low running costs and decent range of features, the Officejet 6500 isn't without its charms and would suit an undemanding home office environment. However, its slow print speeds are a concern, especially since faster colour lasers, such as...

Review: HP Officejet 6500

 

Affordable inkjet printer that gives laser printers a run for their money

Low RRP; decent running costs; good range of features

Slow compared to most lasers; no wireless

The HP Officejet 6500 is cheap and benefits from low running costs, but is slow compared to most lasers.

HP Officejet 6500 Wireless (E709n) inkjet multifunction

 

HP's mid-range inkjet multifunction produces decent quality documents

Wi-Fi connectivity, good quality printed documents

Confusing control panel, scans are poor quality, expensive consumables

HP's attempt to compete with budget lasers hasn't been completely successful with the Officejet 6500 Wireless (E709n), but this inkjet multifunction can still print good quality documents.

HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-in-One Printer

 

Welcome touches for the HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-In-One Printer include a 250-sheet input capacity and duplex printing as standard.

Notably high-quality graphics. Prints, scans, faxes over network. Standalone copier and fax. Ethernet and WiFi.

Doesn't always work as expected (for example, sending scans to Outlook, even when set to use Windows Mail).

Hewlett-Packard Officejet 6500 Wireless

 

HP's Officejet 6500 Wireless color inkjet multifunction printer (MFP) finally offers some serious competition to the Pixma MX700 and other Canon models that habitually dominate our chart rankings. The two machines are comparable in speed and price (at...

Fast print speeds; automatic duplexing ; Inexpensive high-yield inks

Slow scanning speeds ; Orange fleshtones on plain and HP papers

This midpriced model offers solid performance, features, and print quality, with few compromises.
