    My highest priority was for an all-in-one that would fit upon my home desktop alongside my computer and monitor. I needed to replace my HP F4180 because of queuing problems with the latest version of one of my photo editors.

    By comparison, the F4480 is much faster, quieter and sleeker. Prints spew out at least 50% faster. The unit is quieter in operation and has the sound of quality. The F4480 is sleeker and shorter.

    I can’t address this unit’s durability except to say that I am a computer hobbyist of over thirty years. For about the last ten years I have chosen HP products exclusively. I am very pleased with HP’s online support (chat) system.

    As for ink usage, I will willingly pay more for the convenience of needing only two cartridges.

    Tho I use printers predominantly for printing and copying documents, I am delighted with the photo quality of the prints which are sometimes exhibited on the walls of our home.

    As for the software, I downloaded the driver only version from the HP website. The full HP software on the CD may be helpful to novice users but is an annoyance for folks who don’t like all the ads. Better freeware options exist elsewhere online.

    Price was not an issue, this was simply the best at fulfilling my particular needs. However, I am still in awe of the low price.

    I just bought this 1 month ago, and there are clearly more perks than I am currently taking advantage of. Here are the ones I’m already loving. It’s a color printer that allows pure black and white printing. (My old ones only did grayscale wasting lots of colored ink. I can print 6 slides per page, and all printing can be double sided, even multiple pages per side! Amazing paper saving options. Also, a very helpful automatic on-screen error guide. This is just the beginning of what this printer has to offer. To me, it is worth much more than its price!

    I bought this to replace an HP PSC 1350 that stopped working. The F4480 arrived; and works perfectly with my MAC OS X. I did buy a new USB cable. It didn’t come with one; and I was right to do so. The new printer would not work with the old USB cable. Must have been a bad USB cable. They do wear out. And the ink for this printer is very reasonable and only uses two cartridges.

    I ditched my HP printer and bought a Canon instead and I couldn’t be happier with my choice.

    I’m giving the HP two stars, not one, because it is in many ways a good machine. It is quiet and the copies look good. I was somewhat happy with it. BUT THESE HP PRINTERS USE INK LIKE CRAZY. They are a ripoff.

    The Canon system is MUCH better. The cartridges come full and are translucent so you can see the ink in them and watch it run out. They last about 1.5 – 2 months each at my rate of printing (fairly heavy home office usage, as I run a consulting business).

    The HP cartridges keep getting weaker and weaker. They hardly put any ink in them, so I have to buy them in bulk at Costco and replace them every 3-4 weeks. And you can’t see inside them, so HP seems to reduce the ink that each cartridge holds but won’t tell you this. Even more amusing — every time you change a cartridge, the printer goes through an elaborate routine of printing “test pages,” using up YET MORE INK. You cannot stop these test pages or they print again as soon as you turn the machine back on.

    What we *do* know is that HP is charging more for their ink per ounce than you would pay for gasoline, Dom Perignon champagne, or virtually any other fluid on earth.

    This is their business decision to make. Every company seems to want a subscription model now and I guess HP has decided to sell cheap printers and then make a living off of high-margin ink. But I will pay off the cost of my new Canon in less than a year just by buying less ink. After that it is all profit to me.

    And the Canon PIXMA is better for the environment and for my sanity. Plus it works great and the copies and photos look just as good as the HP.

    After much research (thanks Amazon reviewers), I settled upon this printer. I am not disappointed. Following the enclosed instructions was easy and quickly I was printing out my documents (mostly light office use). I haven’t used the scanner but the copier is good. Once I figured out that the blue or black buttons designate whether your copying in color or black, it was a cinch! Yes, the printer does power down with no use, but I knew this from the reviews so I just hit the ‘on’ button again and away we go! I am very pleased with the printer. Oh, and since another reviewer mentioned the USB cable I purchased one of those when I bought the printer. HP products continue to surpass the competition.

    I looked and researched wireless printers and was going crazy. This one had all postive reviews so I decided to order it. I wanted an all in one printer/scanner/copy/ fax and wireless. At 149.00 dollars sale price I decided to go for it.

    It came in a huge box and I thought what the heck did I order and when I took it out of the box it was bigger than my other all in one, but the double sided printing attachment adds some bulk (I have not tried this feature). It is noisier than my HP 4280 all in one, but that is not a big deal.

    Set up was fairly easy, I just followed the instruction set up page. The software took a long time to install. I am familiar with printer set ups and installing software so no problem there just time consuming. It came with everything I needed including the USB cord (usually not included). The fax was easy to set up and send (I have not received a fax yet)It has speed dial too. The wireless works perfectly from my laptop. I’m familiar with HP software so the program is easy to use for scanning and it’s easy to do copies too.

    I am unfamiliar with printheads that you have to install yourself and I do not know if they have to be replaced periodically or not. The ink comes with a pop off top that was kind of scary but you just pop it off. Cartridges are very easy to install. It seems to have to go through a lot to get going including noise.

    It took me over an hour but I wasn’t in a big hurry.

    The only problem I have encountered is with my new HP pavilion laptop 64bit running Vista. My desk top is a dell running XP, and I didn’t have any software problems. The software installed on my laptop with no problems except it gives an error message when I shut down my laptop. My HP 4120 did the same thing, HP has not been able to give me a fix. It’s a 64 bit problem.

    I’m pretty impressed with all the features and I have printed out some 4 by 6 photos and had no problem using photo paper or 4 by 6 paper. The paper tray holds tons of paper which is nice when using wireless, in case I forget to check before printing.

    I only gave it 4 stars because of the Vista 64 bit software glitch.

    I am an intermediate to advanced computer user.

    If you’re looking for a printer with all the latest technologies, check out the HP Officejet 6500 Wireless. Keep in mind that HP makes two 6500 models–one is wireless and one is not. This is the wireless model. With copy, scan, print and fax functions this all-in-one is a real workhorse.

    Fast speed (up to 31 ppm) and extremely easy to use. The setup function is all done via software–you don’t even need to touch the 6500’s keypad controls. It links directly to your System Preferences control panel making the wireless and fax settings easy. It uses 4 separate color inks, so you can control your print costs when only a single color needs to be replaced.

    Main drawback is HP’s decision to only include a 2-line text display. For a printer in this price range, HP should have included a 2.5″ color LCD screen. If you’re looking for a multifunction machine that does it all, seriously consider the HP 6500 Wireless.

    Review by Dave for HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-in-One Inkjet Printer
    Yes, the print quality is beautiful, but I’m not as overjoyed as the previous reviewers.

    The printer driver alone is 245 MB. That’s almost as big as my entire MS Office suite! WHY??? With few of its optional programs included (an additional 100 MB or so), it took a good 20 minutes to copy and install the software from the disk onto my desktop computer and complete the initial setup.

    I had expected that once the machine was installed on my wireless network using my desktop, that our laptops on the network could simply detect it and add it with the Windows Add Printer function, if all they wanted was print capability–maybe by grabbing a small driver off the internet or from the machine itself. But oh, no. This thing has to be installed from the disk for each machine, and took 20 minutes each to install on our XP laptops, and almost 30 minutes on our VISTA machine. The useless completion bar sat at 94% for most of that time.

    As I said in the header, the machine itself is noisy. A few seconds after each print job completes, it starts back up and clunks and whirs for 15-20 seconds, apparently chewing its way through some kind of self-adjustment/maintenance. I fear that this is not the sound of long term durability. I’m glad I bought the two year warranty.

    I have had the OfficeJet 6500 Wireless for a few weeks and am genuinely impressed. The print quality is as good as it’s going to get for an inkjet, and is very sharp. Individual ink tanks for each color keeps waste and cost down, and kudos to HP for selling both standard and large capacity ink tanks, allowing heavy users another way to keep costs down. The duplexer is nice and has really cut down on paper consumption. The scanning and faxing abilities are as you would expect for a modern multifunction, and do not disappoint. Where this machine really impresses is the details. It includes a USB cable. You can insert a SD/SDHC/MS card into a card slot and scan any document directly to a PDF file on the memory card, in color or greyscale-without a computer. If you have an iPhone or iPod Touch, HP has a free application that allows photo printing directly from the iPhone/iPod and is really slick. The unit also has a built-in web server than can be used for status, maintenance, configuration, and even scanning using a web app-even if your computer doesn’t have the HP software installed. The wireless setup is incredibly simple-run the wireless wizard from the control panel, pick which network and enter the network password. It connected to my WPA2 network immediately (note the network password is case sensitive) and I never even connected the USB or Ethernet cables. And I am quite impressed with the level of support for Apple computers-even the included software bundle is full-featured and works well, although OS X users will find iPhoto to be superior to the provided software for photo printing. In all I am extremely happy with this machine and especially considering the sub-$200 price.

    I recently bought this printer but I bought it off the HP site because it was cheaper. I truly like the way my printed copies look—very professional and the ink does not smear. I set up the wireless option on both my windows os and mac os laptops. When setting up my macbook, it was tricky but I discovered that once the software was installed on my macbook and I removed the USB printer cable from the macbook and turned the printer off and then on—-the wireless system worked?! Setting up wirelessly with the Windows Vista operating system was very easy. This is nice looking printer and I am enjoying it so far.
