HP Envy 5530 review

 

The HP Envy 5530 is an attractive-looking multifunction printer designed for the home user (no fax, but few would need that these days). With a manufacturer's list price of $130, it's also an affordable printer to buy.

Good print performance ; Wireless connectivity ; HP’s Instant Ink program ; Automatic duplexing

Small-capacity paper input and output trays ; Tri-color ink cartridge makes color printing expensive ; Scanning produced banded output

With a street price of about a hundred bucks, the 5530 is a good, affordable contender the next time you need a multifunction printer for your home.

Very slow performance ; Regular inks are very pricey

HP Envy 5530 e-All-in-One

 

The HP Envy 5530 e-All-in-One is meant primarily for home use, with features like built-in templates for printing notebook and graph paper.

Automatic duplexer (for two sided printing). Wi-Fi. HP-equivalent of Wi-Fi Direct. Prints through the cloud

Slow. No Ethernet port. No Fax

Clearly aimed primarily at home—rather than office—needs, the HP Envy 5530 e-All-in-One offers better than par photo quality plus par quality for graphics and text. It also throws in some home-printer features like built-in templates for graph paper...
