The HP Photosmart C4500 is an all-in-one that can scan, copy and print. With a duty cycle of only 1,000 pages, this thermal inkjet unit will fit best in a home with low capacity printing needs. It has a small weight of only 11.16 pounds, making it easy to pick up and move around. It also has a small size of 17.09x23.11x6.38 inches which won't take up too much space in the home office. One upgrade this unit has above other Photosmart models is that it can not only connect USB port, but it can print wirelessly too!
The printer portion of this unit and the copier portion both need 2 HP C4500 ink cartridges to work. One printer ink is black, and the other is tricolor, containing cyan, magenta and yellow ink. The black Photosmart C4500 ink can be printed or copied at 30 pages per minute, while the color can be created at 23 pages per minute. Using the black HP C4500 ink while printing, a high quality resolution of 1200 dpi can be obtained, and the color can reach a resolution of 4800x1200. This inkjet unit works just fine on most standard paper sizes like letter, legal, card, executive and 4x6 inch. Most types are also supported like plain, photo, envelope and transparencies.
A photo Photosmart C4500 ink cartridge can be used for photo printing and must take the place of the black when in use. With the help of the photo printer ink, a 4x6 inch photo can be printed in 25 seconds, which is pretty fast for a unit this size.
Overall, users tend to give this all in one a negative review. Most find that the HP C4500 ink runs out too quickly, and that the unit itself seems to be unreliable. However, it is reliable and can last for years.
