The HP Deskjet F4470 is a fairly simple all-in-one inkjet that can scan and copy as well as print. It is a good general use machine, though it doesn't have the photo quality of some of the competition. It can print at solid speeds of up to 28 pages per minute in black and 22 pages per minute in color, which is quite good for the price.
The design of the F4470 is simple and straightforward, which keeps its price low, but there are a few sacrifices. First, it lacks an automatic document feeder, with only a flatbed scanning surface available. Second, the control panel has no LCD screen, but rather a series of buttons and lights for controlling the different functions. While this isn't a deal breaker, it may take some time to get used to.
A few of HP's all-in-one inkjet models rely heavily on the included software. Luckily, the F4470 can handle copying in standalone mode, without the need for a computer connection. The included software is quite useful, however, especially the HP Smart Web Printing feature that helps users print a web page without unneeded images and other elements, saving paper and HP F4470 printer ink in the process.
Since printer ink can be a large part of the expense of any machine, it is important to know that HP F4470 ink cartridges are not the most affordable in its class. Using the high-capacity Deskjet F4470 ink cartridges will help lower the cost per page, but the best option is to seek out remanufactured Deskjet F4470 ink, which is often available at a lower cost than OEM supplies.
The F4470 should appeal to the bargain shopper who needs the most basic copy, scan, and print features at a very low price. Those who want more advanced functionality should keep looking, especially since HP F4470 ink is a little expensive to replace.
