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 Rena64 Office jet pro 8600 plus
First one arrived and Had a bad hard drive and had to pack it all back up to ship back. Replacement arrived a few day's later and it works great. Very easy to set up and does what I thought it would do after lots of time researching other brands, chatting with customer sales on line to make sure it would scan to email 25 copies at a time.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by madbas57 great menu; fast printing, but...
I'm having problems coordinating the fax reception with my answering machine. Will try one more thing, having fax answer at 5 rings while answering machine is set at 4 rings. I will test tomorrow when I go to work and send a fax home. Hopefully, according to the manual, it will work. Also, had a problem getting phone service when cable company made me change modems. Couldn't solve the problem so cable co. sent out a tech who just happened to have just gotten the same exact printer. Turns out that we needed to use a phone line with two copper wires in the connector instead of four!
