HP Color LaserJet 8500 Series Printers
The HP Color LaserJet 8500 series printer is a high-end color laser
printer. The printer is based on the feature set of the HP LaserJet 5Si
printer, with the addition of color and an EIO interface. The color
features are similar to the HP Color LaserJet 4500 series printer.
Asian Font Support
Two-byte printing is not supported, however, the PCL driver allows the
user to print two-byte characters.
Paper Types and Sizes
The printer can print a number of media types and sizes, including:
letter-size, A4, A3, ledger (11 x 17), envelopes, card stock, labels,
and heavy media up to 58 pound (216 g/m
) bond. Depending on the
paper size and type, the optional duplex printing accessory enables
color printing on two sides.
The printer has two 500-sheet input trays (trays 2 and 3) that support
letter, legal, and A4-sized media. In addition, tray 3 supports
11 x 17 inch and A3-sized media. Tray 1, a 100-sheet multipurpose
tray, supports such media sizes and types as letter, legal, executive,
A4, and custom-sized media (up to 12 x 18.5 inch), as well as
envelopes, labels, and card stock. In addition to these three trays, an
optional tray can be installed that holds up to 2,000 sheets of paper.
Proof and Print
The Proof and Print feature allows you to print one copy of a job for
proofreading and then quickly and easily print any remaining copies
from the printer control panel. To use this feature, an optional hard
disk is required in the printer.
