HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless review

 

HP's Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless is far more expensive than the other inkjets here, but it's designed to compete with colour laser MFPs.

HP Officejet Pro 8500 All-In-One review

 

Inkjets aren't known for their low running costs, but the HP Officejet Pro 8500's highest-capacity cartridges are bursting with ink. In fact, it destroys every other inkjet we've seen on running costs. And with black cartridges capable of turning out...

As an all-round inkjet, the HP Officejet Pro 8500 works very well. Its low running costs will make it far cheaper than other inkjets - even lasers will find it hard to keep toner costs this low. We just wish it had produced cleaner colour prints on the...

HP Multifunction Unit : HP Officejet Pro 8500 Multifunction Printer

 

I have been asked numerous times why the reviews of HP items suddenly stopped. The reason/excuse I was given by their then agency is too far fetched even to print. Now with a new agency I hope to be able to tell you about the current range of printers.

The HP Officejet Pro 8500 is certainly no beauty but it is very fast and certainly an Office unit. It is black with white sides and even my total lack of style tells me this is certainly a lounge no no. It is 48x42x30cm andit weights a tad under...

HP OfficeJet Pro 8500 Wireless

 

A real alternative to mid-range colour lasers, particularly if you need photo prints.

Most of the claims made for the OfficeJet Pro 8500 stand up. It costs about the same as a colour laser, is surprisingly much cheaper to run, prints quickly - as long as you don't duplex - and produces good plain paper print. To cap it, it consumes just...

HP - OfficeJet Pro 8500

 

When it comes to printing high volumes, laser printers are the obvious choice. HP, however, is attempting to change all this with its OfficeJet Pro 8500, an inkjet MFD (multi-function device). According to HP, it's up ...

With low running costs, the OfficeJet Pro 8500 is worth considering as an alternative to a laser in the home office environment. The price is fairly high but you get a host of features including a fax, scanner, copier and built in wired and wireless...

HP OfficeJet Pro 8500 Wireless review

 

Should you go for inkjet instead of a laser for the office? HP touts lower running costs but how does it match up for quality and speed? We find out.

HP wants to sell this machine as an alternative to a small business, colour laser multifunction. It's as easy to use, needs no more maintenance and gives comparable print quality. If you print photos as part of your workload, it gives better print...

Self-cleaning process renders it unusable for one to two minutes, feathered text in documents

The HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless inkjet multifunction provides tough competition for budget colour laser printers, offering cheap consumables and plenty of features to suit the home or small office.
