HP's OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus is a multi-function inkjet printer on steroids. It includes all of the features you'd expect from an MFP — printing, networking, scanning, copying, faxing — and ups the ante with a legal-size scanning bed, full duplex printing, fast print speeds, and high-capacity paper trays that can hold up to 500 pages. Print quality is very good for an inkjet, and ink costs are also reasonable compared to similar models. Photo quality is good, though not as good as you'd get from a dedicated photo printer. The 8600 is a very good home-office printer, though, thanks to that legal-size scanner and capacious paper trays, you may need to get a bigger desk to accommodate it.

The Officejet Pro 8600 Plus is merely one of best inkjet MFPs on the market. You might argue about the default plain paper photo output, but it's very fast, produces good printing overall, and is very cheap to operate.

Certainly a best buy at this price, especially for small offices that might otherwise consider a laser printer.

As far as I am concerned once you get to a certain level of quality a printer is a printer. That being said, this printer has some great features I use all the time: Scan to PDF which emails right off the printer. ePrint so you can print right from your iPhone or iPad. Duplex. A sheet feeder...
