The HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 is probably the best duplex printer you can buy right now, below $250. It\u2019s one of the only printers that feature duplex scanning as well at this price. And the print speed is also pretty good on this printer.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - HP OfficeJet Pro 8710\r\nIf you can find the HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 for a good deal, it\u2019s definitely worth picking up. Granted that it\u2019s a bit old at this point. But still, it has all the necessary features that you\u2019ll ever need. If you can find it below $250, you can go for it with your eyes closed.\r\n\r\nSpeed\r\nAs we mentioned before, the print speed is one of the better aspects of this printer. With a low enough quality setting, you can get as many as 22 pages per minute (Black ink) out of it. And for color prints, you can get as high as 18 pages per minute out of this printer. If you\u2019re still not satisfied, you should rather opt for the Brother HL-L2350DW laser printer.\r\nPrint Quality\r\nThe print quality and the scan quality of this HP inkjet printer is nothing extraordinary. It\u2019s just fine for business work as long as you stay away from the max DPI setting. For some reason, the highest scan resolution setting degrades the quality of a scan copy. If you don\u2019t want to deal with these weird problems and want something that just works, get the Epson WorkForce WF-3540 instead.\r\nEfficiency\r\nHP likes to tout \u201c50% lower cost per page compared to laser printers\u201d with this inkjet printer in the product information. While that statement may be true in terms of power efficiency, it definitely does not hold any value in terms of ink efficiency.\r\nAdvanced Features\r\nYou may get worried after seeing the launch date of this printer that it won\u2019t have all the modern features. But we can confirm, there\u2019s no need for worrying; it does come with most if not all the modern features you\u2019ll ever need realistically.\r\nValue\r\nIf you can find the HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 below $250, it\u2019s an amazing value for money printer. Also, HP support in the United States is actually pretty good and helpful. But, if you can only find it at its original launch price, it\u2019s not worth picking up. In that case, you can pick up something like the Brother MFC-J880DW.\r\nHP OfficeJet Pro 8710 Wrap Up\r\nSo overall the HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 is a pretty good inkjet printer. A longer power cord would\u2019ve been nice, and you need to sign up at HP.com in order to print wirelessly, so do watch out for those factors. Other than that and a few other quirks, the HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 is perfect for pretty much everyone.
