HP 8600 Review
I've had nothing but trouble with it. I called HP Customer Support and was directed to their "Leadstream" Department. I was told b I've had nothing but trouble with it. I called HP Customer Support and was directed to their "Leadstream" Department. I was told by Leadstream there are hardware problems and I should unplug and re-plug it. It worked for a while and then failed to print again. When I went through the drill another time, it printed 5 copies rather than one, wasting ink and paper. When it prints it is fine, but the printer is utterly unreliable.
Called HP again. They told me to plug the printer into the wall and not a power bar. I told them I would use an extension cord given where my outlet is located. They said that may not work.
I am going to return this while it is still under warranty. HP is a great company, but this product was apparently released before it was perfected. …

To scan I had to activate scan each time - and it doesn't work. Have to reboot the printer n times. VERY SLOW scan and printer speed. Gosh...I could go on and on..
Prior to this I owned a Canon and it was PERFECT. The only reason I went with HP is at that point it only supported AirPrint.
I just might take a loss and buy a Canon now that they have firmware update for airprint.
One of the worst printers ever...Buyer Beware …

It was better to replace with a new all in one ink jet because of the cost of the laser cartridges. The quality of the print is good. I love the AirPrint feature as I have 2 iPads and one iPhone. This printer does it all and is great for home use. Very easy to set up. I run desktops with Mac OSX and Win 7. Highly recommend to anyone wanting a great value in an all in one printer. …

Worst at being an "all in one" printer
The following complaints are not a glitch because I returned one and got a new replacement one that does the same things: Half th The following complaints are not a glitch because I returned one and got a new replacement one that does the same things: Half the time the documents being sent to the printer require being "refreshed," meaning I have to open the printer utility and manually refresh each print job, and STILL cross my fingers that it will print. The printer dialog box is also awful. Half the time it won't prompt me to set up size, grayscale, paper quality, etc. Finally, I can't get the scanner to work properly, no matter how many times I "uninstall and reinstall" the software as I am told to do. One time (of the many) I called HP, the rep (outsourced to India) told me to keep the printer away from the computer and/or router at least three feet, because there is probably too much interference. (Um, aren't printers supposed to be close to the computer???) …

Although the installation software to make this printer run on a wireless network is frustrating, th Although the installation software to make this printer run on a wireless network is frustrating, this printer is worth the initial effort. We have the Officejet Pro 8600 Plus. It supports a second paper tray (sold separately) and prints from your iPad, iPod, and iPhone! What a time saver this is compared to having to send to my iMac, then print! I love the new line of printers from hp. I just wish they supported the Mac OS more. I guess in time and with software updates we'll get there. The print quality is definitely up to hp standards and it seems in the last couple of years they have taken care of the paper feed/jam issues. …
