HP Envy 7640 e-All-in-One Printer

 

The HP Envy 7640 e-All-in-One Printer packs in a good set of features for either household or home-office use.

Automatic duplexer. Automatic document feeder (ADF). Fax capabilities. Can connect via Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and USB. HP Web apps and ePrint. Eligible for HP's Instant Ink Program. Slightly above-par text quality.

Slow at business printing. Subpar photo quality.

HP's Envy line of MFPs has nicely matured since it was introduced in 2010. The HP Envy 7640 e-All-in-One Printer is not as stylish as the earliest models, but it has more substance. It's still ponderously slow, which could be an impediment in...

HP Envy 7640 e-All-in-One Printer Review and Ratings

 

This inexpensive inkjet can benefit from the low cost per page of HP's Instant Ink service, but we found photo output on this ostensibly photo-centric AIO lacking.

Low street price ; Easy to set up and use ; Low cost per page with Instant Ink ; Small, light ; Supports both USB thumb drives and SD cards ; Only Envy with an ADF

Subpar photo print quality ; ADF doesn’t auto-duplex ; Sluggish to print ; Uses two-cartridge ink system ; Small input and output trays, with latter somewhat flimsy

The only Envy with an ADF, the Envy 7640 has many of the advantages as its Envy brethren, many of the same disadvantages, and a couple of its own. As mentioned, like with several other late-model HP inkjets, the Instant Ink service allows you to print...

HP Envy 7640 All-in-One Printer Review

 

Colorful touch screen ; Front media slot ; Quick setup

Frequent pauses between jobs ; Very slow scan and copy times ; Single cartridge for all colors

The HP Envy 7640 is one sleek all-in-one with a useful touch screen and easy access to ink, but it's not good enough of a performer.

HP Envy 7640

 

HP's Envy all-in-ones started life as small-format lifestyle printers, designed for living rooms. They've since developed into more conventional home or home-office devices, and the Envy 7640 is a bigger, more technically-sophisticated multi-function...

The HP Envy 7640 is a well-designed and easy-to-use MFP, with useful features such as front-panel USB and SD card slots and twin paper trays. However, these may not be enough to steer you away from rivals that offer better speed and value for money.

HP Envy 7640 review

 

Affordable all-in-one packs in the features but loses points for style and print quality

Easy to setup ; Packs in loads of features ; Photo and plain paper trays

Average print quality ; Occasional paper jams

A capable home or small office printer with plenty of features that's let down by its middling print quality and bland design.

HP's all-in-one looks like it's destined for the home office, but it serves up enviable photo prints, too

  (Rating Hidden)

Thanks its fax function, automatic document feeder and internet connectivity, the HP Envy 7640 is aimed squarely at the home office user. Black text is printed crisply and clearly by this all-in-one, but how well does it cope when you introduce colour?...

HP Envy 7640

 

This is a four in one unit as it has the ability to send and receive faxes. So not only a rather nice printer and a good unit for the occasional copy but also useful for scanning both to a PC and it also has the ability to scan to a card or USB stick.

Thed HP Envy 7640 measures 44x45x20cm and weighs less than 8Kg, the second figure, the depth, includes the power lead which protrudes beyond the official measurements. Even in its small height there are two inbuilt paper trays an A4 one at the base...
