    Great Printer

    • Written by from East Peoria

    I replaced my Samsung laser jet with this printer. 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.

    Excellent Printer

    • Written by from Easton

    I bought two of these in the last two days, one for home and one for our property manager. The home one replaced a 7-year old Epson inkjet printer/scanner. The 8600 is heavy, it weighs 25 lbs!

    It took about 20-30 minutes to setup each Pro 8600. They are connected wirelessly to a Linksys E4200 at home and an E2500 at the office. I have had no trouble with scanning files, printing, etc. The duplexer works just fine. I have used "cheapo" 24 lb inkjet paper and 20 lb general purpose laser paper with no problems.

    The office 8600 is at about 50 feet from the E2500 router and there are 5 interior drywall partition walls separating them. AirPrint from my iPad 3 works great.

    I have learned over the years that the installation of HP (and Brother) printers is easy if you follow the instructions step-by-step. You cannot get creative. Just follow the 8600's on-screen instructions for the initial setup then load the DVD and follow the instructions step-by-step. I have had to "fix" a number of computers where the owner didn't follow the instructions.

    Oh, by the way, both printers are connected to PCs, one Win 7 Home Premium and the other XP Pro.

    Very Satisfied

    • Written by from Chino Hills

    I purchased this elsewhere a few days ago for fifty dollars less than listed here. I had it set up and running on and iPhone, iTouch, Macbook, iMac, and an HP PC in 20 min. Operation is very intuitive, fast, quiet. It looks great, very sleek and clean. I love the fact that the only wires are for power and a phone line Seems more solidly built than any other HP printer that I have owned. This really compliments the apple products we own.

    Lion Compatible AIO Printer

    • Written by from Sparks

    HP's OfficeJet Pro 8600 eAIO is definitely a Mac OSX Lion-compatible, multifunction printer.

    Just follow the Start Sheet instructions. They make the setup easy. Our included DVD has the latest Lion-version software that is listed on HP's support website. We installed, used the Wizard, and were able to wirelessly print from an iMac & MacBookPro. Our iPad & iPad2 printed directly via Apple AirPrint. We did not try HP ePrint. Only the power cord and phone line (for fax) are attached.

    We did have to download and install a Scan Patch for Lion from the HP website. Printing, copying, faxing, and scanning all "just work".

    This is A great machine!

    • Written by from winooski

    I had no trouble setting up this printer on three PCs and a iPhone and iPad. If you use the software provided it is a snap. The unit has a ton of features and it is perfect for the gadget guy. The apps are an extra bonus. I Iike the machine and would recommend it.

    GREAT Printer !!!!

    • Written by from Littleton

    This printer has been awesome. No issues at all. Connected to an Airport Wi-Fi Network immediately. Air print works from iPhones, iPads, iMacs and MacBooks instantly with no setup. Purchased it primarily because of the ink savings. With kids in school ink costs were incredibly high. Still using the starter cartridges that came with the printer. Scanning works flawlessly as well. Highly recommend.

    I am gluten intolerant so bread isn't that great but this printer is AWESOME!!!
    I'd been living the reclusive life of a "print Nazi" and "Ink" had become a line item on my monthly household budget.
    It was a grim existence.
    And then I bought the HP 8600 and VIOLA!
    I purchased this in November 2012. I have a family of 5 and we put this to the test over Christmas break. We didn't need to replace the first cartridge (black) until late January 2013. In February we replaced Magenta & Cyan. It's mary & we still have the original yellow in the printer.
    I have since erased "Ink" from my month household budget & will be enjoying a spa treatment every once in a while for my smart efforts.
    This printer was RIDICULOUSLY easy & efficient to hook up. Don't miss the mobile ap for iPad & iPhone which will allow you to scan & print from mobile devices. Also don't forget to give HPe-print a whirl - very handy for traveling & needing to send a document to the home printer.

    This is a "very good" printer!

    • Written by from Boca Raton

    I have had this printer since the model was introduced and I rate it 5 stars.

    My computer is a Mac Book Pro and I have an iPad and iPhone 5.

    This HP system drivers are always updated whenever a new OS comes out.

    The HP customer service is always there for me, not that I call often!

    The most amazing thing is the E print, from where ever I am. I can be sitting in my car or an airport and print something to my home printer. How great is that!

    Best printer I've ever had!

    • Written by from Denver

    I bought this printer when I bought my iMac in January of 2012 and I've had no problems with it. I am amazed at how long the ink has lasted! Still to this day I have yet to replace the original ink and I use it at least once every week. I would recommend this printer to anyone! I am also an electronics guy so maybe that is why I haven't had any issues. I was just reading some of the reviews on here and felt that I needed to write this. My wifi and connectivity has always been very solid. It's very smart and it will let you know when an update from HP is ready and it downloads it through wifi with no issues. Let me also say that i'm a Mac guy too. My entire house is Mac, iPod , iPad, iPhone and it all works seamlessly. I hope this helps!

    Love This Printer

    • Written by from Rockville

    I love this printer. I love that it is wireless. I was a heavy user of the printer when I first get it as I would work at home and would be printing all the time. The initial starter cartridges lasted about three months. I love the fact that I could do two sided. It saves me so much paper. I have used it on my Windows PC, my macbook pro, my iphone and my ipad 2. The ink cartridges last a long time which is good considering how much they cost.

    I have had many HP Printers and they all say that they don't use that much of the ink when it seems like your replacing the ink cartridges at least every a couple of months even when i use it almost everyday. Will i have had this Printer since March of this year and i have gone through dozens of rims of paper and i am just now getting the low ink message on 2 of my cartridges. Remind you that i am still on the setup Cartridges that came with my Printer. This is the far most the best printer that i have gotten in the past. LOVE IT!!

    Brilliant - like apple products, it just works

    • Written by from Stroud

    Like others here, I cannot fault this printer, upgraded from C7280 which has worked tirelessly for the family but decided we needed a more sophisticated tool to cover not just the Apple products but the increasing demand from the kids homework. Everything loaded perfectly, all software installed on 3 laptops, iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. My other half is delighted that she can now print from her phone easily.

    Honestly, this is the best printer from HP yet and now I've registered it for the 3 years extended warranty it's the top dog of the AIO printer crowd

    I would not hesitate to recommend this printer

    No Complaints

    • Written by from SAINT GEORGE

    I don't understand the complaining reviews. I purchased this device directly from the HP store to replace a 6-year-old HP L7590 All-in-One with one having Wireless capability. Installation was simple and connecting to the network was quick and easy. I followed the instructions on the display of the printer to establish the Wi-Fi connection. At no time did I connect the device using either a USB or Ethernet cable. Also, I did not use the DVD that came with the printer to install the driver, etc. Instead, I used the latest version of the driver software (downloaded from the HP website). All features I use work well — printing, copying, scanning. (I have no use for the Fax function so I haven't tried to use it.)

    This device is quieter than the one it replaced. Otherwise, it seems to operate at about the same speed. Print quality is slightly better. The biggest difference is the added Wi-Fi capability.

    Overall a great printer

    • Written by from Waterdown

    I'm not sure why this product is getting such consistently low reviews, because I have nothing to say against this printer. I read these reviews and decided to buy it anyway.

    This printer is easy to install and prints over WiFi and via email like a charm.

    Many people complained that it didn't come with a USB cable, but you don't need a USB cable with it, because it's assumed that you'll print over your wireless network

    Yes the touch display is not exactly sophisticated, but once you get the hang of it, using the QWERTY keyboard is quite easy. Other people were complaining about how the cartridges and paper jam up - I had no such issues (yet?).

    My only problem with this printer is that it's massive, but with double-sided printing, you probably need extra room. I returned this product for the 6600, it's slimmer version, which works just as great.

    It works beautifully with Mac, PC, Iphone and iPad

    • Written by from GRENOBLE

    I have it since 1 year. My best multifunction ever. It prints on both sides, fast and pretty quietly. With Airprint, setup from iPhone, Mac and IPad was very simple and printing fro mall these devices works like a charm. Cartridges are not too expensive. Scan of multiple page (recto & verso) works beautifully from Mac software despite not the easiest to use. Scan can also be initiated from printers and sent to Mac or by e-mail.
    Very easy to setup. I believe but I don't understand the ones failing with this printer...
