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 5 out of 5Â by Len80 Outstanding so far with one exception
I received my HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus with no problems and was able to set it up easy. I had it printing wireless in hardly no time at all. I was afraid that I would have to download the software since I had Windows 8.1 but I inserted the accompanying disk and the software was installed without having to download. At least, the printer prints fine. I am impressed with the speed at which it prints photos and also in two-sided printing. My HP OJ 8500 takes a lot longer to print those items. The only item I am still having trouble with is the so-called e-print feature.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by denise9895 Good product for the price
I've had this printer for over a year. In the last several months, I find trouble top feeding . I have had to uninstall and reinstall 2 different times because it could no longer find my Wi-Fi and the most recent of this has been this week. The Wi-Fi left me again, but the USB works great. I am a work at home accountant and rely on the top feed for documents. Would I recommend this product to someone else? Yes, I think for the price it is a good product. I will most likely purchase another one in the near future.
