Rated 4 out of 5 by Earthgarden from Easy, great printer I like this HP Envy a lot. I've had mine for about 4 years. I love that it scans, prints, copies. I use it all the time. I do wish it would scan a stack of papers rather than one at a time. But the individual pages scanned can be combined into one doc - it's just that you have to take individually scan each pg. It has worked well for me, and I actually scanned every paper I had on file, digitizing my paperwork - bank stmts, house papers, etc, etc. so that I don't have to store them anymore. It's been a workhorse for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jak312 from It's an excellent all-around printer Not photo quality, but for everyday use, it's excellent. I wish it had a built-in fax like my last HP all-in-one. Otherwise, no complaints.

Rated 1 out of 5 by cdukes1 from Not at all representative of HP qualityI I tried to work through some of the problems but have now had it. In the beginning this 4500 All in one would print one of two pages and stop. I would have to print the second page separately. Now it will not print at all. It continually request more paper so it can realign. I'm very unhappy with this printer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tgarden from Good value for the price This printer does everything I need it to do. The only drawback is that it uses a lot of ink and the ink is very pricey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sket from Excellent printer for the price As stated, for the price this is an outstanding all-in-one wireless printer. Print quality is excellent. Setup and wireless connection is very easy. The only part of the setup that is a bit cumbersome is the data entry of things like the network's password. You have to step through the keyboard one character at a time to select each individual character of the password as you enter it. Again, though, you can't beat it for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LunaTick from Very convenient I like the convenience of being able to print not only from my PC. I've printed wirelessly from my laptop and my smart phone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by bigjohn51 from Fair in terms of setup and ongoing operation I had to get HP chat help to get it to print whole multi-page documents; it was failing to print the first 2-3 pages. It drops connectivity fairly frequently and has to be shutdown and rebooted. The color cartridge is all-in-one so when any one of the 3 colors is low you have to replace all 3. The paper trap capacity is small.
