Cons: We used this printer very lightly over the past 2 years (slightly less than 2 actually). It stopped printing black ink. I tried everything I could think of. Now I know why it has a 1 year warranty.
Other Thoughts: I've used HP printers all my life. Its time to move on to another brand.

Pros: Large format scan and print. Convenient front panel.
Cons: Slow when set to print double sided. Poor color intensity. Doesn't sense paper size. Nags incessantly about low ink when there's plenty of ink left.
Other Thoughts: There aren’t a lot of choices for an 11 x 17 all in one printer, and they all have some drawbacks. I chose the Brother, but the poor color quality and many annoying quirks made me sorry I had.
I bought this printer because I missed my old HP 11 x 17 for making occasional signs and posters, and wanted to save paper while printing double sided. But the color intensity and accuracy is nowhere near as good as my former and current HP printers.
The worst thing is that it takes 24 seconds just to print one page, if it's set to double sided. It's not smart enough to know when the page isn't printed on the back, so needlessly goes through the whole double sided, ink drying process.
It starts popping up “low ink” messages when there’s still plenty of ink, and keeps putting them up incessantly. I printed well over 100 more pages before the black starter cartridge ran out. I guess they just want to sell more cartridges.
When I load and print on 11 x 17 paper, it says the wrong size is loaded, but if I ignore the message and continue, it prints fine. After two email exchanges and an hour on the phone with a tech, I was informed that it works that way. So every time I switch paper sizes I need to set the size in the preferences. My old HP knew what size was loaded.

Pros: Easy Setup, Good Price, Quality Prints, Updater updates both software and printer firmware, Can use 3rd party inks
Cons: Smaller Display, No Touch Display
Other Thoughts: I usually go for the higher end printers. In this case, just needed something reliable. No issues on setup through wireless printing.

Pros: Fast, prints 11 x 17, auto doc feeder for scanning. Decent canned software. Easy to use.
Cons: A bit loud. Manual feed can only take one sheet a time. Seems kind of cheaply made.
Other Thoughts: I saw some complaints about how loud it is and was expecting it to be much louder. It really isn't all that loud. Maybe it's about as loud as the old HP Deskjets from the late 90s. Also saw complaints about how to get to the cords (inside the machine), but really, it's not a big deal. The instructions are quite clear. It seems a bit cheaply made, but so far it's working great. I love being able to scan via a doc feeder and printing to 11" x 17" paper is excellent. The scanning by doc feeder sometimes results in crooked scans, but that doesn't bother me. I guess if you're really concerned about noise, or super high-quality document-fed scanning, this wouldn't be the printer for you. But, I really can't imagine you could do much better for the price!

Pros: Easy to configure on a client workstation running Windows 7. Quick inkjet printing.
Cons: Absolutely worthless on modern server operating systems. Server support ends at Microsofot Server 2008 64-bit, but no support for 2008 R2 or higher. Does not work well with HP Universal Drivers.
Other Thoughts: Got this for a client and the install went great on the local PC's, but could not get any drivers to work when installing on a Server 2008 R2 x64 terminal server - not even the HP Universal PCL or PS drivers would work. Be warned if using on a domain network.

Pros: Works fine. Prints fast in black and white. Scanner quality is great. Makes adobe pdf's faster than my old printer. Also pretty quiet overall. Fax works fine too.
Cons: Unless you always print black and white text on thin 8.5 x 11 paper, this is NOT the printer for you. This printer has a problem with the sheet feeder (well documented on HP's website). Google hp "officejet pro 8600 plus photo paper" and you will see this is a huge problem. It WILL NOT print on 3 types of photo paper I tried, from 2 manufacturers. HP was one of them. Won't print card stock either. And forget about envelopes. Business cards....not a chance. If you print on card stock, photos, or on envelopes, business cards, etc. avoid this thing. I'm returning it tomorrow.
Other Thoughts: I'm not sure how this printer gets good reviews, but I'm going with a different brand.

Cons: Broke after just two months of use. Checked ink cartridges and they're still mostly full. Nonetheless pages come out blank every time. Even before completely breaking the printer had trouble retrieving paper in the paper tray. Changing the amount of paper to more or less did not help. The warranty does not help because with a cheap printer like this because it isn't worth paying the shipping to the manufacturer. I would NOT recommend this printer to anyone and I highly regret spending the money I did.
