Offering USB connection, the HP OfficeJet 4500 proves itself to be easy to use. Able to create only 3,000 pages per month, the 4500 is best suited for small offices and home offices. This thermal inkjet unit has a light weight of only 13 pounds which will make it easy to move around the office when needed, and it also has a small size of only 17.1x15.8x8.5 inches, making it simple to find a place for even in a cluttered office too. Though it doesn't offer flashy features like newer machines on the market, it does offer faxing, printing, scanning and copying all in one, which many units don't. Though the new and used price alike are quite affordable, the price tag on the OfficeJet 4500 ink cartridges may get a little overwhelming.
A black and tricolor HP 4500 ink cartridge are both needed for standard prints. The black has a yield of 200 pages, while the color has a yield of 360 pages. A third high capacity black printer ink is available too. Using black OfficeJet 4500 ink, resolutions of 600x600 dpi are possible, and with color printer ink, the same resolutions are possible.
When it comes to reviews, this machine generally gets positive ones. Its wireless capabilities are probably the unit's most praised trait, and buyers love how easy it is to use and operate. The setup is a synch, according to reviews, and the envelope printing is a breeze. The low upfront price is often applauded, but the cost of maintenance when HP 4500 ink cartridges are used is called an annoyance often. Complaints lie in the fact that paper jams come often, and many wish that it was a little faster overall. For the most part, it is praised over and over again. To avoid high prices on the HP 4500 ink, buyer remanufactured versions from third party vendors.
