Review: HP Officejet Pro 8000 Wireless Printer

PCWorld: Review – HP Officejet Pro 8000 Wireless Printer

PCWorld rated this under-$200 printer highly for its excellent text print quality, wireless connectivity and inexpensive ink.

“HP’s Officejet Pro 8000 Wireless color inkjet printer ($180 as of March 26, 2010) could cure some small offices or workgroups of their color-laser envy. Even the lowest-end color lasers can’t compete with the Officejet Pro 8000 Wireless’s speed, features, and print quality–and its inks are cheaper, too.

The inks are so cheap, in fact, that we have to talk about them first. The standard-size supplies (the printer ships with a set) are already a bargain: A 1000-page black cartridge costs $25.99 (about 2.6 cents per page), while each 900-page cyan, magenta, or yellow cartridge costs $19.99 (about 2.2 cents per color per page). A four-color page would cost about 9.3 cents. The high-yield cartridges are even better, as HP has priced them at $35.99 for 2200 black pages (about 1.6 cents per page) and $25.99 per color for 1400 pages (about 1.9 cents per color per page). That pegs a four-color page at just 7.2 cents. The lowest-cost color laser printer we’ve tested, the $199 Dell 1230c, has significantly more-expensive toner.”
