Everything but the HP6500 E709n Printer

HP6500 E709n printer

The best thing about this printer was the feeling I had when I threw it in the trash... I have had it for over a year & it was the WORST printer I have ever encountered. I would actually have anxious feelings if I knew I had to work with it. I do hope that HP's new printers function better (but of course they would have to because you can only go so low in a valley). The wireless would stop working. It would only scan to an SD card & could not scan to a computer. 9 hours total spent with support & they couldn't fix it... couldn't even do a direct wired connection. If someone gives you one of these, realize that they don't like you at all.

I agree with ES. I have had nothing but problems keeping my Officejet 6500 e709n connected via wireless. If I had a nickel for every time I went through the Wireless Setup Wizard on the printer I'd make Mark Zuckerberg look like a poor fellow.

If you look at the posts on the HP Support website, you will see thousands about this all in one and the issues with installing software, keeping internet connectivity going, and all functions working. This has had constant problems from day one and the wireless function has never worked properly. Avoid it. HP support has also been extremely poor around this problem and suggests one might want to avoid HP pringers altogether.

Scans good
Cons
Too quirky

The thing randomly stops printing during jobs on occasion and freezes print jobs on the computer. The only way to get it to act right is to power cycle it. Half the time the power button doesn't respond; you have to unplug!

Print Head

We have had our HP Officejet 6500 for a little over 2 years ... Started having ink system errors 3 weeks ago. I removed the printhead and cleaned it ... but it back and worked perfectly for 3 weeks .... now we are told that the printhead is worn out and we need to spend $50 to get a new one ... and it is not guaranteed to work. It is a really good printer if you plan on replacing it every couple of years.

The printer has been a constant problem. It keeps not recognising the ink cartridges are there and full. With every new use it requires fiddling with the cartidges to try and get recognition before it will print scan or copy.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
