The HP ENVY 4505 e-All-in-One is geared toward the home user on a budget, but it still provides excellent printing, copying, and scanning functions. The inclusion of wireless networking makes it easy to share, and it supports mobile printing from smartphones and tablets. Some buyers might not like the use of a tricolor HP 4505 e-All-in-One printer ink supply, however.
The design of the 4505 is surprisingly compact, at only 4.72 inches tall, with a footprint of just 17.5x13.2 inches. The unit weighs just 12.32 pounds, which even includes the weight of the ENVY 4505 printer ink supplies. This makes it practically portable, especially when its input trays are folded up.
Speaking of trays, the 4505 can hold up to 100 sheets in the input tray and 30 sheets in the output tray. This could be considered limiting for users who do a lot of printing, but should suffice for the average home user. ISO speeds are up to 8.8 pages per minute for black and 5.2 pages per minute for color. The unit also supports borderless printing at many popular sizes.
While the control panel display of the 4505 is fairly small, it offers solid control over the different functions available. With ePrint technology, users can access web templates from the control panel, or send a document to a unique email address to have it start printing, even remotely. It also supports mobile printing from tablets or smartphones.
The cost of ENVY 4505 ink cartridges shouldn't be a large concern, as supplies are quite affordable. Although the standard HP 4505 ink cartridges are a little small, high-capacity versions are available with around double the page yield. Buyers who want to save even more can find remanufactured HP 4505 ink from third-party vendors at a significant discount.
The HP ENVY 4505 offers a lot more than one might expect for such a low price, from its solid print speeds to its excellent wireless support and mobile printing. Although it is designed for light-duty print volumes, this all-in-one inkjet is a bargain at such an affordable price point.
