UnPacking the HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-in-One Printer

HP Officejet Pro 8500 Small Last week I received a very unusual package – guess what? It was a brand new HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-in-One printer courtesy HP Imaging and Printing Group as well as their consultants Genesis Burson-Marsteller.

I received the unit to do my very own hands on assessment on how this printer performs and also answer the burning question “Is an Office Inkjet better than a Laser?”. I will be sharing with you folks a series of reviews over the coming weeks on each of it’s vast features. But even before that, I would like to clearly state that all my reviews on this product are entirely my OWN and are in NO way influenced by HP or it’s partners.

Having said that, lets begin unpacking the unit. I have created a small video of the entire unpacking exercise. Have a look at it below.

Some of the brief specs about the HP Officejet Pro 8500 are:
  • Print capability of A4 duplex colour prints using inkjet features.
  • High resolution 4800 x 2400ppi scanner.
  • Integrated plain paper Fax.
  • Print DPI quality of an amazing 4,800 x 2,400 dpi.
  • Supports Wireless operation using WiFi.
  • USB 2.0 connectivity.
  • Computer-less copy/print operation both in B/W and color.
  • Supports direct use of multiple data cards like SD, MMC, etc.
  • Supports PictBridge operations.
  • Sports a very large 250-sheet paper tray.

During the coming days I will be posting on how I set up the printer and how well it performs in my SOHO (Small Office Home Office) setup. Stay tuned.

    I can't size the tray for letter and the machine frequently tells me to load paper. Why did they leave off the slide mechanism that let you keep the paper snug against the paper intake? I dislike the constant need to reset the paper in the tray. Seems like a dumb move to me. Am I missing something on the tray?

    Thanks for posting. I liked the features of HP Officejet Pro 8500. The print quality is good and is available in both B/W and color. I also like HP Officejet 6000. The speed and the text quality is also very nice. Price is very reasonable. This printer is the ultra modern functioning device with the ultra clear finishing quality. The design is not new, very traditional.

    Lovely design and appears to have great features. That is the end of a short list. Great paper weight or major environmental hazard if you throw it out the window in frustration.
