HP Envy 4500 review


When you look at a value-priced all-in-one photo printer/copier/scanner like the Hewlett-Packard Envy 4500 ($99), it's easy to criticize it for not having this feature or missing that feature. To do so would be unfair, as some tradeoffs are to be...

Good speed performance ; Wireless connectivity in addition to USB ; Duplexer is standard

Small capacity paper tray ; Does not use individual color cartridges ; Photo-quality printing can be expensive

The HP Envy 4500 is a highly capable multifunction photo printer for the home that’s low in price. But, if you print color documents and photos often, you could end up spending more on expensive paper and ink.

Overall, great printer. Great value. Easy set-up. If you do not need to print large volumes quickly, this is a great choice. The wireless feature works well too.About me... Budget Conscious, Infrequent user
