I set this up at the weekend and it's been great. To be honest, setting it up was a bit of a bore as it took an age to calibrate, align and clean (30ish minutes) and the software supplied to get it up and running with my Macs has been the easiest so far. Print quality is good, speed is much quicker than I have been used to (it's always easy to say it could be quicker) and wifi seems more reliable than my last HP wifi printer.

I've read reviews that the all-black style is a little industrial but personally I find it very modern yet unobtrusive in my office.

Worth a serious look if your in the market for a new printer.

A fantastic all in one printer from HP. However beware. The fax requires an analogue telephone line. HP were keen to tell me that the product does not work through a digital line. WRONG WRONG WRONG!!! Come on HP everywhere is now digital. So does this mean that this product is not fit for purpose in the UK. If you speak to HP the answer is Yes however by purchasing a 2 pin RJ11 cable everything is suddenly OK. HP tells you not to use any other cable than that supplied!!!
As for the other features of this printer, I can't find a single fault. It looks good, printing speed very fast , photo quality prints excellent. One minus point is that the printer takes a while to check itself from time to time other than that all is good.

BRIEF REVIEW

Recommended.

Works a treat. Simple to install. Reliable (so far) and beats having a computer tied to a printer.

Downsides: large desktop foot print. Slow-ish to start. Print quality OK.

LONGER REVIEW

I did a stupid thing once I'd bought this printer. I read the reviews about it AFTER I'd paid for it!

I know, I know. That's not the way you're supposed to do it...

You're supposed to check out the reviews for a product and then use your red laser scanner on your smartphone to find the best price, ask all your friends on Facebook, send out a tweet, spend hours and hours online checking out all of the review sites and trawling around the forums to find out what people really think.

Only THEN are you supposed to buy the right product at the right price!

But I fell for a special deal and bought this machine on a whim.

And I'm glad I did.

Despite some of the negative reviews I (have now) read, the printer was very easy to set up and install. I had it working and 'speaking' with two laptops, one ipad and 2 smartphones in our home within about an hour of it being unwrapped.

The print quality is great. Not as detailed or as fine as say an high-end laser printer but it serves our general needs well. The ability to scan, photocopy and fax (who needs a fax these days?!) is also very welcome.

But it's the wonder of wifi-enabled printing that really does it for me. It's fantastic to be anywhere in the house and being able to send a photo, map or document to the printer anytime you want. And all without having to fiddle with memory cards or cables. Bliss!

We bought one of these when the paper handling on our trusty duplex colour laser grew too erratic. We had an urgent print run and were won over by the HP's inexpensive page cost.

The long and the short is that the printer is adequate, however its much vaunted wifi connection is a disaster area. You can actually print from the computers (not dependably), but the most frequent thing we ever see is "unable to establish two-way communication with the printer". I have that pat 'cos I've seen it so often. I doubt I'll ever persuade the brute to send a fax from a computer.

The web browser can find it and talk to it, the router knows it's there, even my ruddy mobile phone detects it but HP's software can't. You can input it's location manually. "it's at 192.168.0.25, mate". "Ah, yes, that printer, the HP Officejet 8500 A910. Nah, still can't see it". Hmmmmm...

Anyway, we sent it back to HP, who took weeks to decide what to do, and in the interim we bought another manufacturer's duplex colour laser for the print run, still unresolved. Comparisons are odious, as they say, especially comparing the HP's network communication with almost anything else except the toaster. No, the replacement printer can't talk back to HP's software either. The laser is in daily use, and the HP is available to whichever machine it's talking to today.

All in all, having spent about a working week twiddling with it, I could only recommend this machine to computer enthusiasts who just love guddling with the settings on a network which every machine on earth can access except this stupid printer. Everyone else - if it doesn't work right out the box don't hang on to it too long like we did, hoping you'll be able to fix it. Send it back immediately.

I've lived with this machine a month now and it's been far from a pleasant experience.

The good first: a fast print speed, good quality output and beautiful looks (at least until it gets a fingerprint on it).

But it's biggest issue is the paper handling. The first time I loaded paper into it it grabbed a number of sheets and paper jammed. I had a play with the paper tray and noticed that I had pushed the paper too far in because there was only a slight notch stopping the paper.

So, now I'm careful not to push the paper past the notch, but now it has great problems grabbing a sheet of paper. It turns out you need to force the paper past this 'notch' to get it to grab the paper, but push it marginally too far and will will go back to grabbing several sheets and jamming. Aargh!

Also:
Do a large print job and the output paper will become a horrible mess and not stack up neatly.
It takes about three minutes to switch on from cold. So my old habit of switch on, print, switch off is no longer an effective strategy. You either need to remember to switch it on several minutes before you need it, or leave t switched on all day, which rather defeats it's claims of eco-friendliness.
The scanner software is very unfriendly and doesn't support descreening, so i can't dump my stand alone Epson scanner yet.

My overall verdict is that this is a big improvement on our previous HP all in one but still has some major design defects.
