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

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...

MIcrosoft users beware


Set up instruction sheet is small two sided page without instruction words so some of the set up is by trial and error. Once set up everything worked well except the printer would not print documents. I worked on this without success until I noted in...

Much improved


This is an improvement over my older wireless printer. Easy set up. Ran out of ink quicker than expected but shouldn't be a problem with enrollment in the instant ink program.
