HP Officejet Pro 8600 e-All-in-One Printer N911a HP Officejet Pro 8600 e-All-in-One Printer N911aI had an HP Officejet R40 printer for over 14 years, and it finally broke. After considerable research, I replaced it with the HP Officejet Pro 8600. There are “Plus” and “Premium” models of the 8600, but I got the cheapest. As far as I could tell, the Plus and Premium models did not have much to offer that I cared about – a higher capacity document feeder, a larger touch screen, and a second paper tray. I was pretty happy with the R40, and I thought that 14 years was pretty good for a printer. I print less that 1000 sheets a year, I think. So I was predisposed to get another HP. They have “Photosmart” printers that allow you to edit photos on the printer, but I am happy to do my editing on my computer using Picasa. The 8600 does have slots for inserting several types of memory cards (SD, Memory Stick Pro Duo, etc.), which would be handy for photos. The Officejet 8600 does lots more than the R40 did, so it is just as…

EXCELLENT PRINTER / LOUSY SOFTWARE I switched to HP when my Epson died after years of good service. The printer is excellent – great quality and features in a tough package. I love receiving my daily Motley Fool Newsletter from ePrint automatically. The scanner multipage feed and two-sided print is great. Installation of the hardware went according to the directions (with some guesses). The on-screen display and keyboard give me all the information needed with the WiFi connected indicator letting me know that it’s ready.The reason for the 3 of 5 star rating is the problems with connectivity. I use the printer via WiFi for my desktop and laptop. Frequently and intermittently, I get an error message on the laptop that print did not work. Yet while that message is staring at me in two windows, the printout is coming out just fine. Also, sometimes the scan process works great and other times it does not work at all. In both cases, the desktop does not recognize that the printer or scanner is available. This…

great printer The printer was very easy and fast to set up. It is a dream compared to the old HP printer that I had replaced for setup and ease of use. My primary use is for printing, scanning and copying on standard paper and it is one of the easiest to set up and use that I have found. I did compare this printer with the HP7510 (which is the same price) at a store and chose this one because it has the ability to fax, has the ability to use an ethernet cable (unlike many of the newer wireless printers) and because the ink for this printer was almost 40% less than the HP7510 (assuming the page volumes for the ink cartridges are comparable).The only difficulties that I have had was the eprint setup took several attempts. Not sure if this was a problem with the printer or a problem with the webservice. However, the printer seemed to lock up during this process. After turning the printer on/off and retrying several times, it finally did complete and printout a code to enter into the…
