Lawrence, Doncaster Frequent home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to set-up and install all applications including fax
Good quality text and pictures also copying photos from scanner
Very quick in printout
Plenty of software application
Ink cartridges east to install and last a lot longer than others and price of them is cheaper than some
Design of it is neater than some other models
Wireless connection is quick to connect from the Desktop PC to the printer also to internet services
Touchscreen is a lot better to see and easy to use in getting from different menus


Bad points:
Although it looks big and noisy it’s no worse than the one I had which was a Photosmart C309a model that was bigger and noisy
Although it has its own software application on the photosmart it had solution center which when you using the document feeder it comes up on the monitor to choose what type of document to put them in either PDF or OCR and so on and they went into my scan section, but with officejet 8500a they just go into document files
