Very pleased


We bought this new printer to replace the HP 55210 All-In-One printer. Very pleased with the whole process of Set Up on the printer and the Software download. We are both technophobes, but it was a seamless and stress free process. Excellent. Thank you.

A great Allrounder


When I received this I was pleasantly surprised at the smaller than anticipated size of the HP Envy 6230. It took me five minutes to set up and apart from a few technical hitches like it wouldn't recognise paper being in there it was fine. It printed...
