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.

Tri-colour cartridge can lead to wastage ; Photo image position problem ; High page costs

At the back is a single USB socket, but most people will connect via wireless, as this gives access to Wireless Direct print from mobile devices, including both Android and iOS via AirPrint. You can also download HP’s Printable pages, most of which are...

HP Envy 4500 e-All-in-One Printer


Buying a cheap printer such as the HP Envy 4500 e-All-in-One is, for some people, a spur-of-the-moment decision these days, but it still helps to know what you're getting into when buying a sub-$100 printer. The main selling point of this model (apar...

Small footprint ; Good wireless printing features ; Simple to use

Noisy ; Running costs could mount over time

HP's Envy 4500 is an all-in-one printer with good online features that allows you to print from practically anywhere. You can also use apps to print wirelessly from mobile devices. As with all cheap printers, the hardware tends to run noisily, and the...

HP ENVY 4500 AiO : HP ENVY 4500


suppose it had to happen sooner rather than later. With mobile devices, namely smartphones and tablets, being our constant companions giving us access to data and then storing what is important to us, you would expect companies to develop printers...

Let me clarify one important point first of all. The HP ENVY 4500 is a fairly standard All-in-One (AiO) device pure and simple. It combines print, scan and copy facilities along with a choice of USB or Wireless connectivity. In common with numerous...

Just received the printer the other day. Set up was a snap. My son programed our router number into the printer per instructions, then we went to the web site and downloaded per instructions. No problem at all. We now have two computers hooked up to...

This is my first wireless printer, I was amazed at how easy it was to set up. I am not a tech person, being 71 years old. My husband thought I would not be able to set the wireless up, but within minutes, it was done!!
