Rated 5 out of 5Â by AltGirlTX Fantastic All-in-One Printer
This printer model was recommended to me, and I could not be happier with it. I wanted an All-in-One that could print documents and photos, scan (especially direct to email), fax, and copy - all in black and white or color and via WiFi. This printer does it all, and does it very well.
The touch screen is a huge bonus, since you can choose all of your options, including scan to email with the address included, while at the printer, instead of walking back and forth from the printer to a remote computer. I also found that initial set up could all be done at the touch screen, although a setup CD is included as well.
The print, scan, and copy quality is sharp and true to color. (I have not used the fax function yet.) The printer responds and completes jobs quickly. You can set up multiple authorized users and email addresses by using the website, with one primary email address as the default.
The quality of the printer also appears quite good. I ordered this online and had it shipped, and everything arrived in perfect condition.
Overall, I would highly recommend this for anyone wanting a multifunction printer for home, home office, or small business use, and I would purchase it again.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jim64 This printer has everything I need.
This printer is the first new I have purchased in six years. Oh what a difference. The only feature that I have not used is the fax capabilities, but will be doing so shortly. Copies are sharp, fast print speed, great for doing two-sided copying, easy to use scan feature. Could not be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JPSilver Great Printer, Glad I Waited!!!
A year or so ago my Officejet 7210 was showing its age but was still doing a good job. So I looked at an OJ Pro 8500. The reviews we so bad I decided to wait for HP to re-engineer out the problems.
They did a great job with the 8600. It is a very nice upgrade. Much more solid feel that the 7210 and with more features.
I have nothing but Macs and contrary to some reports, the thing sets up and performs flawlessly on Snow Leopard.
NOTE: Never use a supplied software on new hardware. Always go to the manufacters website for the latest download. There is also a special update for Lion as well.
The touchpad is like all the recent ones from HP. Not as forgiving as the iPhone/iPad.
- Solid Feel to all the plastic parts.
- Setup is a breeze on a Mac
- Embedded Web site on printer
- Flexible networking
- Touchpad - it's fussy and will it last.
- Cost of Ink.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Dootchie 0 features work with Windows 8.1
Hi, I've had this printer for about 3 years now. With the introduction of Windows 8.1, NONE of the features on the printer work anymore. Examples: 1 scanning from the Printer to the PC (you can't set it up anymore). 2) Faxing from the PC to the Scanner 3) Accessing the PC from the scanner.
Basically all you can do with this printer and Windows 8.1 is print and scan via the pc interface.
Hope this helps someone!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by nikname41 A good printer
Having just got this printer, I have found it good and have encountered no problems. It seems to work fine. One feature I find annoying is that there is a paper drawer and my old printer had open access. I frequently print a couple of Sudoku puzzles from different sources and want to use both sides of the paper, so I have to open the drawer to reload the paper. If I am researching something and want to print from different sources, i have the same problem.

Everying is great except for printing photos. this was one of the thing is am interested in. The 8600plus has issues with slow printing of photos and also whit picking up photo paper.
The other functions work very well and more than meet expectations I will keep my photo printer however.
