HP Officejet 6500 Wireless printed plain text at a speed of 11.7 pages per minute (ppm), and its color output was as fast as 3.2 ppm--faster than average, though far short of HP's advertised engine speeds of 32 ppm for monochrome and 31 ppm for graphics. Photos looked smooth and detailed. Some colors fell on the dark side of the natural range, and flesh tones often appeared orangey. Scans happened slowly and lacked some crispness, but the color balance was generally good.
The control panel of HP Officejet 6500 looks busy, but grouping buttons by function prevents confusion. A two-line, 16-character monochrome LCD shows menu options and messages. Media slots take MMC/SD, xD, and MS/Duomedia cards; absent is any PictBridge port. The bundled HP Solutions Center and Photosmart Essentials applications add to the feature set. Photosmart Essentials offers photo-editing and organizing tools. The Solutions Center's help section includes an extensive library of how-to and troubleshooting animations.
