Wireless and mobile printing are hot features in the printer market, but they often come with a cost. The HP ENVY 4520 e-All-in-One inkjet printer includes both, yet it is still one of the most affordable models in its class. With ISO print speeds of up to 8.8 pages per minute in black and 5.2 pages per minute in color, it is no slouch when it comes to performance, and savings on HP 4520 printer ink makes it even more appealing for home users on a budget.
The setup process for the 4520 is very quick, especially for wireless sharing. Once configured, users of Apple smartphones and tablets can take advantage of AirPrint support for effortless printing right from their mobile devices. With ePrint support, users can even print from virtually anywhere by sending the document or photo to a unique email address.
Even with so many pluses, the 4520 does have a few drawbacks. Its input paper capacity of 100 sheets is a bit light, even for most home users, though duplex printing is included for printing on both sides of the page. The unit also lacks an automatic document feeder, so users who do a heavy amount of scanning and copying might find it tedious.
Another major drawback for some buyers will be the tricolor HP 4520 ink cartridge, instead of separate colors. With three colors contained in one ENVY 4520 ink cartridge, users may end up wasting a fair amount of printer ink. Buying remanufactured HP 4520 ink can help in this respect, however, as well as using the high-capacity versions.
All-in-one inkjet models usually make a lot of compromises to arrive at such a low price. The 4520 is the exception to the rule, however, as it offers a great feature set, inexpensive ENVY 4520 ink supplies, and excellent wireless and mobile printing support.
