HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus

 

HP's top multifunction inkjet rivals low-end colour laser machines and offers both touchscreen control and remote printing via ePrint.

This is a fine, robust inkjet all-in-one, well up to general use in a small office. The touch panel works well and is much easier to use than equivalent physical keys. Possibly more of a gimmick is the ePrint facility, though some ‘must-have' use may...

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

 

The HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus is the successor to the Editors' Choice Award-winning HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless all-in-one inkjet we reviewed in 2009. It gets a slight makeover--all black is the new white-and-black--and adds to the already...

The HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus 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 review

 

The HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus is a comprehensive small-office machine with excellent speed and print quality, and low ink costs. The machine's touch controls and legal-size scanner lift it above competing models such as the Canon Pixma MX870 and the...

The HP Officejet Pro 8500A Plus may cost a lot, but its features and performance justify the investment. You'll also save over time on the inks.

HP - Officejet Pro 8500A Plus eAIO

 

We're used to the idea of buying an inkjet printer for the home and a laser for the office, so the idea of an inkjet MFD (Multi Function Device) that is intended for office duties sounds ...

HP has managed to deliver an inkjet printer that makes a perfectly decent office MFD, however the Pro 8500A has its quirks. The list of features covers all the options and the running costs are pleasingly low. Having said that the speed isn't all that...

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...

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.
