    UPDATED (01/06/15)

    I needed a printer to finally replace my 10+ years old HP Deskjet 932c. Although ancient by today’s standards, this printer was considered an excellent printer for its time, and printed nice documents and VERY nice photos and graphics, even on plain paper. Needless to say, purchasing HP’s latest and greatest, I expected at least as much.

    PACKAGING: 5 Stars.

    The printer came packed very well, surrounded by foam on 4 corners with clear plastic covering a lot of the surface of the printer, including the touch screen (of course). High quality, no-residue tape kept everything tight and secure. The entire printer was encased in a plastic bag which I used to pull the printer out of the box (would have been difficult to get out otherwise!).

    LOOK and FEEL: 5 Stars.

    This printer is BIG and quite hefty. I chose this printer after I had checked out all the others I was considering because it seemed so well built and sturdy. All of the components are tight, well-finished, and feel high-quality. The scanner, auto-document feeder lid is light-years beyond nearly every other inkjet printer I checked out at a big box store (the only ones that compared were some other HPs!). The lid is thick and solid and lifts with an assist mechanism that holds it at a high-angle (nearly 90 degrees) upright position. All the other printers had thin, flimsy lids that you had to hold up to use. The paper tray is solid and well-built with good quality adjusters (for paper size).

    SETUP: 4 Stars.

    Setup was easy and flawless. The printer came with a 1-page (pictures only) quick setup guide. Initial setup includes attaching the duplexing tray, adding ink cartridges (that come with the printer), paper, and finding the wireless network (if you have one). The printer found my network without issue, and I simply had to add my router’s access code for the printer to finish connecting.

    The next step of setup required installation of the software from the included CD. Setup walks you through the process quite easily, including helping you to choose how your printer is connected (Wi-Fi, Ethernet cable, or USB). Setup also asks if you want to register the product, asks for your zip code (not sure why), and other pertinent information. Also, setup auto-checks that you want Google toolbar (no, I don’t, thank you very much). Be sure to look for and uncheck these “options” if you don’t want this bloat-ware. Unfortunately, I did NOT get the option to choose where to install my software (I have several hard drives). I assume it defaults to your Windows directory (or, where you have Windows installed).

    Everything went without a hitch on my Windows 8 system, with the printer showing up automatically on the printers page of the control panel (Windows auto-selected this as my default printer). Total install time was around 30 minutes, though I did not specifically time it. As an aside, HP’s software did let me know my printer was eligible for their instant ink replacement program (internet search will explain what this is). I installed the printer quickly and easily on the second computer in my home simply by loading the software from the CD.

    During setup, the printer used 3 or 4 sheets of paper to align the heads and auto-correct print quality and print some instructions. Quality looked normal (what one would expect) for standard text documents. One of the print-outs had a couple of very basic, blue pictures that looked normal (as one would expect).

    PRINT QUALITY (EVERYDAY DOCS): 5 Stars.

    (UPDATE 06/24/14): I have had the opportunity to print some “everyday” text documents (e-mails, Word, etc.). The 8610 on “Normal” quality print setting prints VERY fast on plain white paper. In fact, the machine wakes up and prints the document before I can hardly get out of my chair in the living room and walk over and grab the (1 page) printout on the printer in the dining room. The print quality is normal for an ink-jet printer and certainly sufficient for this application.

    (UPDATE 01/06/15): Even though the machine prints lightening fast in draft and normal mode, it does NOT shake the entire machine in the process as many printers are wont to do. The machine seems to be balanced and weighted very nicely!

    PRINT QUALITY (OFFICE DOCS): 4 Stars.

    (UPDATE 06/30/14): I printed my resume’ on Southworth 32 lb. 100% cotton resume’ paper. I used settings ‘Other Thick Paper’, ‘Black & White Only’, and ‘Best’ quality. The document printed quite fast but definitely slower than the “everyday docs” described above (which is expected, and I would be surprised if it didn’t!). The print was crisp and clear. I did not see any text bleed. I would give this 5 stars, but I still have a problem with the black ink. For some reason, it simply is not as dark and eye-popping as the black…

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)

    I’ve used a fair number of HP inkjet based products over the years. Some of them in the office as well as several at home. These have run pretty much the full range of the line in one form or another. The last experience in my own home was with a Photosmart 3210 all-in-one that used six colors plus black system of HP-01 and 02 inks. In the end, I didn’t like any of them. From the super-bloatware that came packaged with them to the operation of the hardware that always seemed centered around wasting the most possible ink so that I’d have to order more. All of the engineering efforts of HP seemed to be biased away from making the printer products actually work better. Also, the scanners always seemed slow and had such poor results that they seemed added as an afterthought. Canon and Brother products always made me happier.

    That was a long negative preamble to say that I was skeptical that this new Officejet Pro was going to make me happy. In fact, I am now happy with this. It is fast, clear, and prints decent photos as well as text/business documents. The Macintosh software and drivers are actually decent, and it does not require you to use their bloatware. Wow, big changes. There’s just a couple things that prevent me from giving it five stars, and those are in the cons section below.

    Also, let me add that Amazon Vine actually sent me an 8620 and not an 8610. So, this one has slightly better specs and one more duplex mode, I believe.

    Pros:
    1. Easy setup. This is a wireless as well as wired unit. You can connect with USB, ethernet, and WIFi. I chose to use WiFi only. On some printers (notably, Samsung) you are way better off going for USB and then WiFi after you’ve made the initial settings. On the HP, all that is not necessary. The nice touch screen display allows you to quickly and easily put the unit online with your local wireless network. Furthermore, it does not lose its settings when you power it off, unplug it and move it. Superior!
    2. Touch screen. This is the best touch screen interface I’ve seen in a printer. It is of good size and it works. The menus as sensible. Superior.
    3. Speed. I didn’t measure it, but the time to first print, time for each print, etc. are all fast enough to be non-irrititating. That is, no time for coffee between hitting print and walking down the hall to get the output. It is pretty fast for photos, as well. I would say, under a minute for a “best” quality 4×6 on photo paper. Excellent.
    4. Scanner. Very good and very fast for a business printer. The Mac scanner driver worked fine over wireless and you can initiate scans from the HP or from your computer. Since HP is a PC house, I would guess the Windows version works at least as well. Superior (for office unit – My Epson Perfection v700 flatbed is still way better, but that is not the mission of this office scanner).
    4a. The speed of the scanner is good (non irritating) and the feeder works as well as the ones on my Brother MFC units (one laser 8660DN and one J870DW). The scanner can do both auto feed and open lid flatbed work. It does not have stupid and fragile parts that I can see so far.
    5. Feed tray. This is a plus and a minus (see cons). This is a nice, sturdy tray with metal in the critical load bearing areas. It has robust adjustments for length and width vs. the flimsy pieces found in some printers. This one’s tray is clearly made for office use vs. casual use. It can take 4×6 inch up to 8.5×11 inch paper. It easily removes and inserts into the printer body.
    6. Photo quality. This baby prints really nice photos on photo paper even though it is only a 3 color printer! I mean, not true photo printer level, but as good as drug store prints, if not better. I used HP Advanced paper with the HP cartridges. Good throughput and no banding or weird color shifts. The color on “best” setting was nice and well saturated. I used the “let printer decide” settings for color management. Superior (for an office printer).
    7. Separate color cartridges and black. As a higher volume printer than some smaller home units, this supports the larger individual ink tanks rather than the combo ones. This also means that it does NOT include the replaceable heads with the ink cartridge replacements and you must remember to maintain the heads through more or less frequent use. This is not one of those units that you can just let sit for a month between uses.
    7a. I am sure that HP has still engineered a lot of their profit into the cartridges – it is a profitable business after all – but the nice thing is that HP ink is available everywhere, including Costco. It is also always eventually “hacked” so that inexpensive after market versions are available. This is not always the case with all versions of other printers. In any case, the “real” cartridges for the 8620 were on the warehouse store shelves when I looked, so you have…

    HORRIBLE RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX!, June 14, 2014

    Don’t waste your money or your time on this “update”. This printer will not grab and pull the paper properly inside the unit. On setup, I kept getting a “paper jam” message” despite following the proper set up instructions. The printer seems incapable of pulling the paper inside and instead it provides constant error messages. The printer even said there was something wrong with the ink cartridges since the printer failed to be able to align the printer heads. The first sheet it was able to spit out before all the jams had a huge blob of black ink on it. After that, the endless nightmare of paper jams started. This is not an improvement over the 8600 and I’m sending this turkey back. It even looks and feels cheap compared to the the 8600 Pro right out of the box.

    *UPDATE*

    Today I went to OfficeMax to purchase an HP 8600 Pro for $119. They had a great sale and the price was right, so I decided to buy it. Out of the box the 8600 Pro feels sturdier and built with more quality than the 8610. I pulled all the packing materials off and went through the set up. Set up was a BREEZE and my printer was up and running in about 15 minutes or so out of the box. There were no paper jams, no problems with the printer cartridges not aligning, no problems connecting to the internet or any other set up issues. The paper effortlessly pulled each sheet from the paper tray with no problems and no jams. I must have wasted about 20 sheets of brand new paper on the 8610 trying to get it to work correctly before I gave up and wasted an entire ream. The HP 8600 Pro printer just looks and feels like a quality machine compared to the 8610. I will say that I got the last 8600 available at any of the OfficeMax locations near me. If you can find an 8600 Pro or Plus, go get it. If you already have one, keep it. If you have an 8600 Pro or Plus and are considering “upgrading” to a 8610, forget about it. It’s not an upgrade. Instead, the 8610 is serious downgrade. If you are looking for a new printer and you are between the 8600 Pro and the 8610, go out and find an 8600 as fast as possible if there are any left.
