The HP OfficeJet 4211 all-in-one inkjet has a lot to offer for a low price, with printing, scanning, faxing and copying, and its compact design will be right at home in small spaces. Its sheet-fed scanner is a nice addition, but also a limitation and the cost of HP 4211 printer ink could start to add up during high-volume use.
While some all-in-one inkjet models feature both an automatic document feeder and a flatbed scanner, the 4211 only includes the former. This helps to keep its dimensions very compact, as it measures only 13x16.4x16.7 inches. Unfortunately, this also limits users to scanning only loose pages up to a maximum of 8.5x14 in size. This is a tradeoff that might be worth it in very tight spaces, but models with a flatbed scanner can be found in this price range. It is quite easy to move around and to set up, weighing just 12 pounds without the OfficeJet 4211 ink supplies installed.
Print speeds are just average, at a maximum of 17 pages per minute for black and white and 12 pages per minute for color. Reviewers noted that print quality is somewhat better than most models in its class, which is not surprising the 4800x1200 dpi maximum print resolution.
When it comes to printer ink, the cost of HP 4211 ink cartridges is a bit higher than many competing models, but the capacities are also larger. The high-capacity black OfficeJet 4211 ink cartridge can provide up to 520 pages, while the color supply can provide up to 400 pages. Best of all, users can choose remanufactured HP 4211 ink to keep operating costs down over time.
The OfficeJet 4211 might best be suited to the buyer who wants stellar print quality and only occasional scanning, copying, and faxing. High-volume users will find its operating costs too high, and heavy copy and scan users will find its sheet-fed scanner limiting.
