HP OfficeJet pro 8500 All in one Printer

HP Officejet Pro All in One Printer

I will begin by saying that this printer is completely wireless.
You can place the printer no matter where in the house.
Means that you don't have to connect it to your router or computer.

After installing the driver, software and configured everything, you can use it from any wireless computer anywhere in the house.
-You can setup your network on the printer itself

Draft mode is pretty fast:
-You can print 100 pages in less than 4 minutes.

-In the advance option, you can adjust the Ink volume & the drying time.  This way if the print is to light you can increase the amount of ink used or vice versa.

The ink cartridges have a great printing capacities
I printed about 1000 pages without having to change the black ink cartridge, and I haven't changed the colour cartridges yet.

With this printer you can:
-Scan (Flatbed or Automatic Document Feeder-ADF)
-And Fax

I scan many sheets music that I use with my Ipad to play the piano, so I E-mail them directly to my Ipad with this printer.

Very nice printer.
If you use the normal printing mode, be prepare to wait, because it is a little slow.
But when you try the draft mode you'll never want to use any other mode.
