HP Envy 4520 All-in-One Printer

 

Meant for home use, the HP Envy 4520 inkjet multifunction printer delivers higher quality for photos and graphics than for text, along with faster printing for photos than for business applications.

Automatic duplexer. Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct. Prints through the cloud. Fast, high-quality photo printing in testing.

No Ethernet or fax. Installation software and front-panel LCD push hard to sell HP's Instant Ink Program. Slow for business applications and low-quality text in our tests.

Conclusion If you need a printer for your home office, as well as more general home use, or you simply want one with better text quality and faster print speed for business applications than the HP Envy 4520 All-in-One Printer delivers, consider the...

HP Envy 4520 review: Printer lets you choose your preferred ink refill delivery system, instant or on-demand

 

The HP Envy 4520 all-in-one is the first printer to feature the company's updated Instant Ink smart cartridges that lets you choose between the traditional pay-as-you-go refill and HP's Instant Ink auto-delivery service.

The HP Envy 4520 printer uses the latest ink delivery technologies to prolong cartridge life and potentially save you money through its Instant Ink delivery service. It also scored well in print speed tests and produced high-quality output results.

The printer lacks a memory card reader and an Ethernet port for direct networking. The touch display can also be tricky to use.

The HP Envy 4520 is a capable all-in-one that combines a printer, copier and scanner with two ink delivery choices designed to ease back on expensive ink refills.

HP Envy 4520 Review

 

Tempting low list price, but high ink prices/inefficient ink use negate any savings

Inexpensive initial cost

Poor text quality, very high operating costs

The Envy prints great photos and is easy to use, but struggles to produce high quality text. Its propensity to quickly burn through expensive ink cartridges means it would be an uneconomical choice in the long run for most users.

HP Envy 4520 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The HP Envy 4520 all-in-one printer costs less than £60, which looks like a bargain for a printer with wi-fi and automatic double-sided printing. It won't dominate your desk thanks to its low profile and, unlike some cheap printers, it's no tortoise...

HP ENVY 4520

 

An All In One unit which means it prints, scans and copies. The HP Envy 4520 can do the last two actions without the PC needing to be turned on. In fact with printing being possible from phones and other non PC devices you might even buy one without...

Cheap, unreliable and drinks ink

 

I bought the 4522 version of this printer at Costco. At first I was impressed at its low price and ease of set-up of the wireless connection with my Mac laptop,pad and phone. However that impression quickly faded. The ink tanks emptied quickly. Then...

Nothing

Wireless connection failed, ink tanks dry after about 100 pages, poor HP support

I HAD A HP PHOTOSMART 2610 xi FOR MANY YEARS

 

I WAS VERY HAPPY WITH THE OLD HP PHOTOSMART 2610 XI, SO I HAVE TO SEE IF THIS HP ENVY4520, GIVES ME THE SAME SERVICE I GOT BEFORE.
