4.0 out of 5 stars Good performer with nice wireless features, 31 Jan 2011
This review is from: HP Officejet Plus 6500A e-All-in-One Web Enabled Printer (Print, Scan, Copy, Fax, Wireless, e-Print) (Electronics)
In the end I didn't buy this from Amazon as the delivery lead time meant I was going to be without a printer for nearly two weeks - so that was a bit disappointing. However, the review is to assess performance and overall the outcome has been good.

In summary:

Easy to set up physically, unpacking (apart from vast amounts of bright blue sticky tape), paper and cartridges easy to install.

Once you have it connected to the internet DO A SOFTWARE/FIRMWARE UPDATE from the unit itself before you do anythng else. If you don't it will make it much harder to connect to wireless laptops etc. If you do it finds them and connection is easy.

It stays connected (or so far seems to) - my old HP printer used to go offline very regularly and had to be deleted and reinstalled every time. So far no need.

Print quality is good, but not first class.

It will print from an iphone using AirPrint, but the connection is less reliable than other devices, you often have to walk into the room where the printer is installed before it decects it, but it does work.

The duplexer is useful, effective and saves paper.

The ability to print from e-mails is great - basically you can send an e-mail, with an attachment from any device, anywhere in the world and it will get processed and both the mail and the attachment printed for you. There is seemingly not much of a time lag in doing this, so anything in the day should be waiting for you when you get home. Just make sure your attachment is properly formatted and fits on pages well, before you send.

Overall a good product with good features, recommended unless you want to do a lot of very high quality colour printing.
