FEATURES AND DESIGN

HP segregates its printer line up according to user type. Envy printers are that designed and priced for a user wants a great looking device that is of low cost. With the front paper tray panel raised Envy 4500 is an innocuous black box. Measuring about 17.5 X 13.2 inches (width and depth) and 4.7 inches high takes some desk space. At its weight is of 12.3 pounds, which is not back-breaking.

Envy 4500 has a complete set of controls surrounding a 2-inch monochrome display, which includes buttons for navigation, wireless status check, HP web services and a help button. Performance is good for at this price point. The front down panel is where that pull-out paper is accessed which has a maximum capacity of 100 sheets; this is a fluctuation out support of paper output. The capacity of 30 pages is less than the amount of paper the input drawer can hold and in our testing, the printed sheets tends to falsify on this support after printing about 10 pages.

There’s no automatic document feeder, Envy 4500 offers duplex printing which is an additional feature to have a Multi Function Printer (MFP). Saves paper and produces a more professional looking report of school paper. Envy 4500 uses two ink cartridges, a black cartridge and a tri-colour ink cartridge that contains magenta, cyan and yellow. A tri-colour ink cartridge provides much lower ink, if one colour runs out also all the three colours must be changed which is a waste for other two inks.

Cartridges come in two capacities standard and high yield. Standard cartridges are rated at 180 pages for monochrome and 150 pages for colour. XL cartridges are rated at 455 monochrome pages and 310 colour pages. We had to replace colour cartridge after printing few pages for our print quality test. Printing a lot of 8 X 10 photos, printer engulf down the ink faster. Good news is that cartridges aren’t too expensive. If on printing photos cost per page is considerably true to any printer when outputting colour photos.

Interesting feature of Envy 4500 is the “Instant Ink Plan”. Signing up for this plan which includes a monthly fee with set number of pages and if ink runs out printer notifies hp through internet and sends out for a new cartridge. Lot of printing consist of photos, gulps down a lot of ink, instant ink could be a good value.

HP rate print speed as up to 8.8 pages per minute (ppm) in black and 5.2 pages per minute (ppm) in colour. Achieved about 8 ppm using word based test document with mostly black text and a small colour logo.  Envy’s print driver is sparse which offers limited defaults and paper choices.
