HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 is an all-in-one printer, which means it can copy, send faxes and print images for you. It is an ink jet printer but it belongs to a higher grade of printers that HP has to offer. At a price of about 150 dollars, it is more expensive than some basic or lower grade printers are, but still not overpriced. Now the device comes neatly packed and first thing to do is to remove safety tapes from it and with the press of a button lift up the control panel onto the desire position so you have nice visibility in terms of contrast to the LCD. After that, you will have to install the duplexer in the lower back part of the printer and the optional tray at the bottom. Then connect the power cord and turn on the power. After that follow the onscreen information to finish setting up your printer.
Once you plug it into the PC, depending on your OS it might get automatically recognized with drivers installed on their own, or in case you need to install drivers and you wish to have the software package that came with it, run the DVD in your PC, printer plugged in via cables, but not turned on. Wait for the information on your PC monitor that will tell you to turn on the printer. And remember, you cannot print without the ink cartridges, so make sure you install those too. Remove the protection foil from them and insert them in their respectively marked slots.
