As a home inkjet model with a lot of extra punch, the HP ENVY 5643 e-All-in-One is a good value. It can print, scan, and copy, and fax, but also has a scan-to-email function that is actually better than faxing. Its ISO rated speeds are 12 pages per minute for black and 8 pages per minute for color, which is solid for a home model, and HP 5643 printer ink is affordable enough for small budgets.
For the sheer number of features on hand, the 5643 actually has quite a compact footprint. Its flatbed scanner sits on top of the machine, and it does lack an automatic document feeder, though this won't be a big loss for light-duty home users. The input paper tray holds up to 125 pages, which is a little on the light side, but should stand up well to light workloads.
A USB port is included for a direction connection, but wireless support will make for easier setup and sharing. The unit is compatible with both Windows and Mac computers, and it includes HP Photo Creations software to help users get the most out of their creative photo projects.
The cost of printer ink is on par for its class, and HP 5643 ink cartridges should be fairly easy to find in stores or online. The tricolor ENVY 5643 ink cartridge can provide around 165 pages, while the black supply can provide around 200 pages. High-capacity versions of the ENVY 5643 ink supplies are also available, with yields of 415 and 600 pages.
For such an affordable all-in-one inkjet printer, the HP 5643 covers most of the bases for the average home user. Its high-quality output is impressive, and its print speeds are solid, while its affordable HP 5643 ink will keep costs down.
