The HP 6500-A: Poorly Contructed with Lots of Features

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Hewlett-Packard has out-flimsied themselves with the 6500-A. The construction is as cheap as they could possibly have made it. My previous HP printer had the hinges break off of the scanner cover in gentle normal usage... not allowing cover to close and ending it's life. Hence, I had to buy another printer.

My previous HP unit used 6 large cartridges that were inexpensive to replace. Great color rendition. Being able to replace ONLY the color you need keeps from throwing out an otherwise useful cartrige. Bravo! This one uses 4 smaller ones and still makes a lot of sense.

The "copy holding" device on this one (where the printed work is held) sticks out and is the thinnest possible plastic. There is nothing solid feeling about this unit anywhere else.

The BIG WARNING is that there is NO tray for 4X6 photo paper. One ad for this unit indicated it held 80 sheets of photopaper. Not mentioned was that it had to be 8 1/2 by 11". This means each picture has to be cut out and trimmed. When 4X6 paper is so easily available and simple to use, how could HP have screwed this up? The large number of people with digital cameras will not be happy with this unit. I will now have to buy a separate photo printer... and they are not cheap... if I want to use 4X6 paper.

Scanning photos did not seem to be as clear... even at higher resolution numbers... as I had previously experienced.

On the plus side: Double sided printing could be a plus. I've not had any paper jamming issues as I've read in reviews by others. HP still has the best per copy printing price which is what kept me with HP. Noise levels while printing were not high. Have not yet used the Wi-Fi printing access. A second computer at a distance in the same room will make this necessary.

Reading the reviews of other printers lead me right back to HP. I just wish they would realize they are not endearing themselves to the buying public by producing products that are so obviously poorly constructed. The auto industry tried that and look where they ended up! I would grudgingly reccommend this printer to a friend.

Great printer for the money. HP should have left this in their line up

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Printer is compact and allows good in home / business office capability. It has just enough features and is not confusing to install. Works great as a wireless printer and has good speed for scanning and printing.

The auto feed on this HP product is greatly improved over the earlier models that had problems with picking up pages and feeding them to the scanner or fax.

All in all, a great value for the money!

What's not to like about this printer!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This printer does it all! I've owned many HP printers and I must say that this one is the best, hands down. It prints, faxes, scans, and copies. To top of all that, it's wireless too. I can print from anywhere in my house. I can also plug my SD cards right into it without using my camers or PC. It produces quality photos and other submitted jobs (two sided if you prefer).

Fantastic and easy to figure out. AAAAA+++++

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I love it, I have a lot of experience with many different types of printers and this is one of the tops. I have read some complaints but I believe mos of those come from user error and not this unit. I have had this for 3 months and not a problem. I went thru the first inks very quickly but with the extra large ink units I got over 600 pages of full text and graphics in color and almost a thousand with the black. Can't go wrong with this printer. Did find it cheaper at Sams wholesale.

A great buy

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I love this printer, the quality of print and the great color is more than I expected. I have it connected thru my modem so anyone can print wireless. My wife loves it when ever she finds a new recipe, she prints it from where ever she is in the house. I have also used the fax and copy functions. Soon I will scan in some pictures to my computer, that I want to save on cds. I am more than satisfied with this all in one printer.
