This connected easily to my wireless, is a breeze to set up, and easy to use. One touch scan to network folder is great, and flexibility is very good - copy 1 sided document to 2 sided, with 2 pages on each side, and then print in draft mode! saves a lot of paper / time / ink.

The only bit you need to install on computers is the printer driver, every thing else can be set up and managed through a built in web server, so you can access from any machine.

you can even see how many documents and how much ink each member of your family / business has used!

it is very fast in draft mode, not so fast in 2 sided or colour, however i recommend for any home user that needs scan / fax / copy, and for any business where it will be shared amongst a small team.

You probably still want to go for laser for anything in constant use.

Overall very impressed. Some reviews claim lots of problems installing under Vista, however no problems for me there either.

a few very minor niggles: it is easy to touch the wrong thing on the touch screen as it seems to not be as accurate as it might be, but you soon learn to be careful when pressing. it is not clear how to set it up to go into standby after a defined time, it does seem to after a while anyway.

I am a real HP printer fan and bought this 8500 wireless from Amazon a few weeks back. Once it was switched-on it had a really loud high-pitched noise. It was impossible to work in the same room as the printer.

I had to return it but Amazon and HP were very helpful in replacing it.

I just received the replacement unit and set it up - incredibly it too has the same noise! It is not quite as bad as the first unit but there is no way I can keep it. With all of the time and cost of set-up, getting approval to return it, packing, and arranging shipping back to Amazon I don't think I will take a chance again on the same unit - shame because it has a lot of great features.

Hope this post helps you.

I bought this printer for home office use with several networked Macs using MacOS X Snow Leopard 10.6. Plugged it in, set the wifi up (Network name and WEP key) via the touchscreen and then added the printer via the printer setup on the Mac.
Really impressed that I did not have to install any software, it just worked, out the box. network printing, network faxing and network scanning all works - no software install needed as its all built into OSX 10.6. Just add the printer and it appears in the printer browser.

On to the printer:

Its well built. Four colour cartridges, nice and chunky, so you wont have to keep filling them with ink. The print heads are separate and replaceable, so no need to chuck the printer when the print heads go.
The photo printing quality is outstanding, I was not expecting photos to be this good for a four colour printer. The definition is great, but obviously it wont be as good as a 8 ink dedicated photo printer.
Mono and colour printing is nice and fast with sharp definition. Beware of using cheap, damp, very thin paper, or it gets stuck in the duplexer. any reasonable paper works fine.
The web server built into the printer, has everything on it, including ml's of ink you have consumed from each cartridge and so on. What date you inserted each cartridge, and so on. Everything is there.
The cartridges are cheap. which was one of the main reasons why I bought this.

The scan to email button on the front panel is useful. No need to have any computers on, just put the paper in, press the button and it sends it out to your email.

Contrary to another reviewers comments, when using wifi only, the printer DOES go to sleep after a period of inactivity. The power button blinks while in sleep mode.

I've had it 2 weeks now, and I'm really pleased with it.

Verified Purchase
HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-in-One Multifunction Printer, Copier, Scanner and Fax with Touch-screen LCD Display

The first two bought and returned to another Internet seller with exactly the same error message of 'paper jam' each time though no such jam had occurred. Encouraged by good reviews persisted and gave Amazon a try for a third one and had exactly the same error message again. It is going back on Friday. On the first occasion, I was informed, eventually, after a 40 minute conversation with HP technician in South Africa (0845 number of course) that this particular error message meant the printer was beyond remedy from a distance. But helpfully offered a refurbished item as replacement! Buy at your peril

I bought this thinking it was the best thing since sliced bread - it looked like it would deal with all of our home and office requirements in one machine. After a lengthy set up process I did a test colour print and it worked fine. The next day, a "clear paper jam" message appeared even though there was no paper jam. Nothing would unblock the message, and on closer inspection of feedback on this and other sites I discovered that this is a common problem. And there are lengthy (and very helpful) explanations about not only the problem but subsequent problems that second and third machines of the same type had, not to mention the difficulty in getting any timely or helpful customer service out of HP. So on the back of all of that we decided to quit before we went grey. Very disappointed.
