Today we’re looking at the HP Envy 4500 e-All-in-One Printer, Scanner and Copier. This is one of HP’s most popular wireless inkjet printers. As its name suggests, the HP Envy 4500 prints, scans and copies in both black and white and color. Additionally, the HP Envy 4500 can also print photos on photo stock.
The HP Envy 4500 has this sleek understated design, with all its controls neatly laid out on the left hand side of the front face. There’s a power button, a monochrome LCD screen with buttons on both sides. The monochrome LCD screen is easy to read and the menu options are easy to access and navigate through, using the up, down and ok buttons. Hitting the Home Button also takes you to the home screen which has all the main options.There’s another row of buttons right next to those and the wireless button has a blue indicator light next to it. The HP Envy 4500 connects to computers and devices through both Wifi and a wired USB connection. The USB cord is sold separately and doesn’t come with the printer. Setup through a Wifi router is very simple and pain-free. Once connected to your wifi router, all devices on that network can now print to the Envy 4500. You can also set the printer up as a web-based printer, so you can print to it from practically anywhere in the world. HP also provides really useful Printer and Scanner Software for both Windows and Mac.
The HP Envy 4500’s paper tray pulls out so you can load upto a 100 letter or A4 size sheets at a time. You can also also load additional sizes of paper and envelopes using the adjustable paper guide. The paper tray has a fold out paper tray extender and a can be closed when the printer is not being used.
The HP Envy 4500’s scan bed can be used both to make copies or scan documents. As a scanner, it can scan as a photo or as a PDF. The PDF option is really useful and works extremely well. With the the HP Software installed, scanning to PDF is almost perfect- absolutely no annoying errors or glitches. It can also make both color and monochrome copies in the copier mode.
Print speed is about 30 s for detailed color pages like this one and 5 secs for black and white prints . Pretty quick by inkjet standards. The print quality is really good, as you can see here. This picture was printed in the highest resolution color mode and the results are pretty impressive, considering it’s a very affordable printer.
The HP Envy 4500 uses two different cartridges. The 61 Black and 61 Tri-Color. The Standard cartridges produces about 190 black and white pages, and about 165 color pages. You can use the Extra-Large cartridges which will almost double your print yield in both color and black and white. I’ll put links to all these cartridges in the description below.
The HP Envy 4500 e-All-in-One Wireless Printer, Scanner and Copier is one of the best inkjet printers on the market. It solves most of the common gripes with inkjet printers. Its super simple to set up, doesn’t have any unusual errors during printing and can easily produce high-quality prints from almost any device in your house.
