HP Officejet Pro 8610 Printer Review

The HP Officejet Pro 8610 brings together all the key features and functions. This model is a high-quality and reliable inkjet printer that quickly becomes a multifunctional device with its many different functions, and has convinced us from the beginning. We especially noticed the unusually high print speed for inkjet printers.

General functions

Of course, the functions are acting an important role for us. Inkjet printing is fast and clean, so this HP model not only impresses in price and design, but also in quality black-and-white and color printing on both regular printer paper and photo printing. In addition to the typical printing, scanning as well as copying and faxing are no problem, making it a real all-rounder for the home or office. The individual devices can connect both via LAN cable and via WLAN, so that printing from the laptop or other devices is also possible. The internet-free connection via USB is also no problem. In addition, the printer has air-print and a USB port. The automatic paper feeder and the modern color display also speak in favor of the HP Officejet Pro 8610.

If you want to scan with the HP Officejet Pro 8610, you will love the high quality. The scanner has a resolution of 1200 DPI, so good results can be guaranteed. To take a full page of scanning, the HP Officejet Pro 8610 takes 13 seconds.


With an excellent resolution of 4800 × 1200 DPI, the device allows fine and clean printing and is also suitable for photo printing in various formats without any doubt. However, printing CDs with this model is not possible. Black and white prints about 9 pages per minute, while color prints 14.5 pages. With graphic prints, it takes about 1:11 minutes and with a high-resolution photo printing at least two minutes.


Copying in good quality is no longer a problem with the HP Officejet Pro 8610. While he only needs 0:11 minutes for a copy of the text, he needs just under a minute to make a photocopy. These times are completely average.


This product can convince not only in terms of functions, but also in its ease of use. Optically, it looks simple and modern at the same time. With dimensions of 49.9 x 46.9 x 30.1 cm and a hefty weight of 11.9 kilograms, he quickly finds a suitable place both in the office and at home. The color display is self-explanatory and all individual options and functions as well as its application are also explained step by step in the supplied software. The paper tray holds up to 250 sheets. Even the setup is done quickly and the printing on different devices or directly from a connected stick is no longer a problem.


Since this is an inkjet printer, the costs are unfortunately on average high. While a normal text page in black and white printing costs 1.4 cents, the cost for a colored page already amounts to 6.6 cents and for a photo in A4 format to 47.0 cents. The cartridges dry out faster, but this is also completely normal for inkjet printers, but the enormous print quality is compensated.


Despite the high cost of use, the HP Officejet Pro 8610 is impressive and, in addition to its excellent features and high quality, convinces with an average and fair purchase price.
