HP’s Envy line of printers have gone through a transition over the years, from somewhat high-end (price-wise) and elegant, if not all that practical. Over the past couple years, though, Envy printers have evolved in to sensible entry-level and midrange all-in-one (AIO) machines designed for home based and small offices, as my recent review of the Envy 4520 e-All-in-One Printer illustrates.
Today, though, we’re looking at the flagship Envy printer, the $199.99 Envy 4520 e-All-in-One Printer, which, by the way, I found for as low as $124.99 while writing this review.
In any case, of the entire Envy line, this one is the most full-featured. However, also like the other Envy AIOs, without HP’s value-added Instant Ink program, which we’ll look at in a minute, it’s too expensive to use.
Design and Features
Of all the Envy printers I’ve seen, this is the only one with an (25-page) automatic document feeder, or ADF, for feeding multipage documents to the scanner, but unfortunately, it’s not an auto-duplexing ADF; it can’t scan both sides of multisided (or any other) pages without user intervention.
As Envy printers go, this one definitely sports the most features, starting with its support for Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and USB connectivity. At 7.6 inches high, by 17.9 inches across, by 19.8 inches from front to back, and weighing only 17 pounds, it’s light and compact, taking up very little space on your desktop.
Using the 3.5-inch color touch screen, you can perform several walk-up, or PC-free tasks, such as copying, faxing, or printing from and scanning to SD Cards or USB thumb drives.
Then, too, there are HP’s printer apps, for access to copious content on literally hundreds of sites around the Internet. In addition, this Envy supports mobile device connectivity through numerous cloud sites, including Google Cloud Print. Apple’s AirPrint is also supported.
Performance, Print Quality, and Paper Handling
In the scheme of things, this Envy, like its siblings, is slow—well below 3 pages per minute on most of the tests I’ve seen. But since this is a relatively low-volume machine, it really doesn’t need to be fast. As to print quality, text looked great, as did business graphics, but this HP inkjet doesn’t do as well with photos as most others I’ve seen. If you’re looking for a photo printer, I suggest you look at About.com’s list of photo printers.
The Envy 7640 comes with a 125-sheet paper cassette and inside that a 15-sheet photo paper tray. Printed pages roll out the front of the machine, onto the cover of the paper drawer, which seconds as an output tray.
Cost Per Page
Prior to HP’s current Instant Ink offerings, with its three-tiered program, this printer’s cost per page (CPP) would have forbidden me from recommending it. With Instant Ink, though, you can get 300 to say 350 pages each month for a cost of $10 to $10.50. (After the initial 300 pages, you can buy more at the rate 25 pages for a $1.) And we’re talking full-color pages, even photographs, all for a CPP of about 3.3 cents. In addition, you get discounts for paying annually, and unused pages roll over from month to month. Instant ink and its current configuration greatly enhances the value of this AIO.
