Comments about Hewlett Packard HP OfficeJet 8600 e-All-in-One (N911a) Wireless Printer with e-Print Technology:
I've had this printer for about 9 months now and as I've normally been very pleased with HP printers, this one has been a dud. Problem 1 - upon receipt, the printer wouldn't work at all. would boot up but error'ed during self initialization. after a trying couple of hours on phone support, I was sent a new printer head. several days later, new head arrives, same problem, more hours on phone, whole new printer sent. several days later new printer arrives and everything works. All in all, I'm out a few weeks of a printer. HP support, not impressed. Problem 2 - the touch screen is awful. I find I have to attempt pushing 'buttons' several times almost every time I need to touch the thing. Thankfully I do not have to often, but I dread every time I need to scan a document because it's just irritating. Problem 3 happened today, 9 months in. Now the touch screen is barely visible. It's super contrasted where you can almost make out images, but no way can read text. I was able to navigate to the contrast setting and changed it, but it doesn't fix the problem. So now I steel myself for the painful HP support call I need to make. One positive I will relay, is that I have yet to change the ink (one of the reasons I purchased this model). Thumbs up on miserly ink usage. Bottom Line: When it's working its a good printer/scanner, but the product seems to be flawed and I would not purchase this again, I just don't trust it. I believe I am going to end up with a boat anchor after the 1 year warranty is over....
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

HP 8600 OfficeJet
from Buttte, Mt
This is my 2nd HP 8600 Office Jet and I like them both very much. With the XL series cartridges the ink lasts quite a while. The quality of text and photos is very good. The e-print feature is quite handy as well. Had some problems with the first one losing the wireless connection at times but was solved by putting a fixed IP address in. Overall, am very satisfied with the performance. Have owned the first one for over two years now.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Love the printer, but doesn't interact with laptop
from Phoenix, AZ
I think the printer is great, but the interface with my sony laptop has something to be desired. The CD that came with the printer doesn't have the owner manual and some of the features you'd expect to run the printer from a laptop really fall short. Disappointed in HP when they are supposed to be the top of the line.
ERRORS, ERRORS, ERRORS and NO HELP AVAILABLE!!!
from Pittsburgh, PA
So far, terrible decision to buy an HP Printer - NO SUPPORT AT ALL !!!!
good features BUT SLOW
from Tunica Ms
had a OfficeJet 8500 all in one, no longer available so I chose the 8600 e-all in one...much more complicated than the 8500 and MUCH slower...takes 1 minute plus to fax 1 page where 8500 done it in seconds
Perfect for what I needed.
from Divide, CO
This product has all the features I needed for a small price. Wireless, printing, copying, and scanning. Good clarity and easy to use. What more could you want.
When our Photosmart's ink system failed, I started compairing the new printers and found that this was a no-brainer, from the features to the price. The setup wizard is great and within a couple of minutes, with a side call to XFINITY, we were up and printing. Suprized to see that the ink supplied is the 'XL' and not the standard. Very well done here HP. So far so good, now lets see if this one last as long as the last one. A happy camper so far HP.
when I click on print a properties of the printer doesn't show up
