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.

HP Envy 4500


From being HP's premium marque, the Envy series moves to the entry level with this high-value, low-cost all-in-one, geared particularly to mobile print.

XL cartridges available ; Excellent draft print ; Low purchase price

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...

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...

Worst printer I've ever used


This is actually the worst printer I've ever tried to use. The paper jams 9 out of every 10 pages I try to print. No matter what I did, I couldn't fix the issue. If I could have, I would have given this printer zero stars. Returning this first thing...
