HP Envy 4500 review

 

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.

The Envy 4500 has missing features and limitations that would have made it a well-rounded photo MFP, but given that it can be found for less than the retail price, it’s unreasonable to expect it to offer the same degree of functionality as a more...

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...

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...

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...

HP Envy 4500 review

 

Previous versions of HP's Envy printers have been impressively designed, but were expensive both in terms of their initial purchase price and also in the cost of buying replacement ink cartridges.

initial purchase price is very competitive, includes wifi and AirPrint for iOS devices

modest print speeds, high cost for mono printing
