Many people who watch my laptop reviews also ask me what’s the best printer for the home or office or what’s the best printer for students. So I decided to review the HP OfficeJet 4650 All-in-One Photo Printer. This is an HP Instant Ink Ready printer that has built-in WiFi and also has scanner, copier, and fax capabilities. Coming in at less than $100 this is a budget-friendly option for people looking for an affordable printer. I’m pretty pleased with this printer’s design. It’s made of a good looking black plastic exterior with a minimalist feel to it, and it weighs a little over 14 lbs. It only has one button, the power button, and the rest of the controls are done through the digital touch screen on the front. It has two ways to scan, either through the automatic document feeder on top or the flatbed scanner, and the input tray can hold 100 sheets of paper and is easily hidden under the printer. The setup was fast and easy. Just power it on and pop in the 2 ink cartridges that are included with the printer. Even though it comes with a CD, I didn’t need to use it. I just followed the setup guide and was able to connect the printer to my WiFi network within minutes and I was able to immediately print from my Mac without installing any software. A cool thing you’ll notice about this printer is the output tray automatically pops out when you’re printing and when you’re done you can move the output tray back in so it’s out of sight. You can connect the printer to your WiFi network from the printer itself or by using the free HP Remote app. Once the printer is connected to a network you can easily print photos or documents from your computer, smartphone, or tablet. Obviously the first thing I printed was a picture of my cat. It’s on regular paper though, but with the correct photo paper the OfficeJet 4650 can print borderless lab-quality photos which is awesome. I’ll mainly be using it for business though, mostly when I need to print double-sided client contracts, scan documents, or make copies. It’s not the fastest printer, but it’s exactly what you can expect from an inkjet in its price range.

One of the main features of this printer is the HP Instant Ink service because we’ve all been in that situation where we need to print something urgent and our printer is out of ink. HP Instant Ink is trying to solve that for you by allowing you to sign up for one of their monthly plans based on the number of pages you print and your printer will automatically order ink cartridges that are delivered to your door so you never run out of ink again. It’s cool because it’s completely optional if you’d rather order ink the old fashioned way, and you can cancel anytime. We all know how expensive ink can be so depending on your printing habits, this service could potentially save you a lot of money in the long run.

With it’s sleek design, fast and easy setup, WiFi printing from my computer and all my mobile devices, plus the option for Instant Ink along with the photo printing and scanner/copier capabilities, the HP OfficeJet 4650 is a solid option for students or small business owners like myself. It’ll boost your productivity at a low cost. Thanks to HP for sponsoring this video!

I’m about ready to cry. 2 weeks I purchased the 4650 WIRELESS printer as I have a PC at home and purchased a laptop. I wanted to be able to go to libraries and print to home from laptop and phone. Well I have never been able to get it to print from the computer. It will print from the printer such as Status Repts, Configuration sheets, Quality Report. I have called Geeksquad 4 TIMES, HP twice and called Best Buy where I purchased and I get the told the same thing, the printer keeps losing the signal and to connect a phone line or USB ports. Duh that’s why I purchased a wireless printer. We have all tried and sometimes it shows it connected, but most of the time not. Now if Geeksquad comes to my home it’s $99 Got any suggestions?

Purchased for our “home business” both laptops are set up wireless to printer. Takes sometimes up to 3-5 minutes to print the job (1 page). Not at all happy with this printer. Have used HP for a good 20 years, and this is the first time I’ve been EXTREMELY disappointed. Going to purchase another wireless “all in one”, but certainly not this one!

Marilyn McLeod says:

That little swing arm that comes out when something prints, it looks pretty flimsy. Could it break easily if bumped? Do you know if it can be replaced or a bigger holder tray put there?

Rita Poole says:

Can’t figure out why I have to re-connect and enter my printer password every time I log back in to my computer. Is there a password protect feature that I am unaware of and if so, how do I change that?
