Rated 1 out of 5 by whydoIneedanickname455 from Very disappointed I bought this about 3 months ago to replace my old HP Envy 4500 that had developed a problem after years of use. I have been buying HP printers since the 90's and just wanted something reliable. The computer cannot communicate with the printer unless I power cycle the printer. It appears to be on but will not communicate with our computers until I turn it off and back on. I believe the problem is the printer goes in to power saving mode, disabling communications. I have tried reinstalling the software but it does not help. I have not been able to find any way to disable this feature.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Oakley from Copier way too slow I bought this because my 5530 ceased to connct to the computer and it was the same size. However, the display is smaller, numbers not discrete, and it takes 6 minutes to make a copy.

When I first got my HPEnvy4520 it worked like a charm...it must have been very easy to set up because a few w eeks ago I moved it to a different room and now I can't get it to print wireless or connected to printer.

Are there any new drivers available for this printer? Mine is currently only printing in black and white (repeatedly without prompting as well). I have shut it down and rebooted it. Double checked my laptop in it saying to print in color, but nothing.
