Available at a surprisingly low price, the HP ENVY 4501 e-All-in-One inkjet printer is a great choice for home users on a tight budget. It prints up to 21 pages per minute in black and 17 pages per minute in color, has built-in wireless support, and is compatible with both Windows and Mac computers. High-capacity replacements for ENVY 4501 e-All-in-One printer ink can make it more affordable to operate as well.
Another surprising aspect of the 4501 is just how compact it is. The unit is less than 5 inches tall, with a footprint of 17.5x13.1 inches. Weighing only 12.3 pounds with the HP 4501 e-All-in-One printer ink installed, the device feels almost portable, and can easily be moved out of the way when not in use.
Users have the option of connecting the device via USB to a single computer, but most will probably opt for its Wi-Fi support, allowing it to be shared among several computers. There is a front USB port for connecting flash drives and other storage media for direct printing as well as a memory card slot. The input paper tray can hold up to 100 sheets, which is adequate for home use.
The system uses two HP 4501 e-All-in-One ink cartridges: one tricolor and one black. While not as cost-effective as models with discrete colors, ENVY 4501 e-All-in-One ink cartridges are still reasonably affordable. High-capacity HP 4501 e-All-in-One ink supplies are available, with nearly double the yield of the standard supplies.
The 4501 e-All-in-One lacks some of the speed and output quality of other inkjet models in its class, but for such an affordable and compact device, some buyers might find it worth the tradeoff. A larger touchscreen display would have been nice, but it's hard to argue at such a low price.
