HP ENVY 4524 All-in-One Printer Review

The HP Envy 4520 All-in-One Printer ($99.99) is intended for home use. You can see this in the absence of office-driven highlights, similar to a programmed report feeder (ADF) for filtering. It's additionally evident when you consider the way this cheap inkjet multifunction printer (MFP) handles different sorts of yield, with generally high caliber for photographs and illustrations, however shoddy quality for content in our tests.


Essential MFP highlights for the 4520 are constrained to printing, replicating, and examining. Paper taking care of is likewise constrained, with a 100-sheet input plate and an implicit duplexer as an appreciated extra. That is adequate for most home use, yet to switch between plain paper and photograph paper, you need to swap out the paper in the plate without fail. For examining and duplicating, the flatbed can hold up to letter-size paper.

The printer doesn't offer Ethernet, however on the off chance that you interface with your system by means of Wi-Fi, and accepting your system is associated with the Internet, you can utilize the 2.2-inch front-board contact screen to print from a combination of sites utilizing HP's print applications, with crossword confounds, Disney shading book pages, and a 7-day menu organizer being among the most mainstream, as indicated by HP.

Versatile printing with a system association incorporates printing through the cloud. Likewise, you can print through a Wi-Fi passageway on your system from iOS, Android, Windows, Google Chrome, Amazon Kindle, and Blackberry cell phones and tablets. On the off chance that you associate with a solitary PC by means of USB link rather, you won't most likely print through the cloud or utilize the Web applications, however you can in any case interface legitimately with Wi-Fi Direct to print from a cell phone, and you can print a grouping of layouts put away in the printer itself. Decisions incorporate chart paper, music paper, and—unexpectedly for a MFP that comes up short on a fax capacity—fax spread sheets.


The 4520 estimates 5 by 17.5 by 14.5 inches (HWD) and gauges 11 pounds 15 ounces, making it little enough to effortlessly discover space for and light enough for one individual to move into spot. For my tests, I associated it to a Windows Vista framework by means of USB link.

Speed and Quality 

The 4520's speed for business applications is baffling, best case scenario. I timed it on our business applications suite (utilizing QualityLogic's equipment and programming for timing), at a prominently moderate 1.4 pages every moment (ppm).

Fortunately the 4520 improves in respect to the challenge for photographs, averaging 1 minute 1 second for a 4 by 6. That is basically tied with the Brother MFC-J470DW and over a moment quicker than the Epson XP-420

Yield quality is a diverse assortment. Content quality is a stage beneath the range that incorporates most inkjet MFPs, making it eminently inferior. For whatever length of time that you once in a while use textual styles littler than 8, in any case, it shouldn't be an issue.

Designs and photograph quality are both much better with respect to the challenge. The designs yield falls at the low part of the bargain, it at base of a tight range that incorporates most by far of inkjet MFPs. It's effectively adequate for most easygoing home use, and a great many people would think of it as sufficient for PowerPoint introductions and so forth. Photographs are a counterpart for regular drugstore prints, which makes them a counterpart for most inkjet MFPs also.

About HP Instant Ink 

One final thought that requests notice is running expense. Likewise with the HP 5540, the 4520 can exploit HP's Instant Ink program, which works similar to a mobile phone plan. It gives you a chance to print some number of pages every month for a fixed expense, charges extra for extra pages, and confines the quantity of pages you can move over in the event that you don't utilize them.

In the event that you pursue one of the Instant Ink plans—at $2.99 to $9.99 every month—instead of purchase cartridges as required, HP asserts that you can slice your running expense down the middle. In any case, that expect that you print precisely the quantity of pages you pay for. Pursue the $2.99 plan and print the 50 pages you're qualified for, and you've spent around 6 pennies for every page. Print two pages, and you've burned through $1.50 per page.

You have the alternative to go off an arrangement and back on, or switch plans, whenever—in case you're getting away for instance. In any case, on the off chance that you neglect to quit when you don't hope to print much, despite everything you'll be paying the full arrangement cost.

Muddling matters further, and making running cost correlations with different printers practically outlandish, is that pages under the Instant Ink program are unique in relation to pages that organizations quote as cartridge yields. Whenever HP, or some other organization, says that a given cartridge will print, say, 100 pages, it's putting together the yield with respect to a particular picture characterized in an ISO/IEC determination. In any case, when HP says that you can print 50 pages for each month on the Instant Ink program, it's discussing truly 50 pages. Printing a solitary period on the page considers a page. So does covering it edge to edge in ink, with two-sided pages considering two. This makes it difficult to contrast running expenses and the Instant Ink intend to running expenses without it. Remember that, and consider the expense cautiously before you sign on.

One of HP's selling focuses for Instant Ink is that the printer screens ink levels and naturally arranges more ink before you run out, so the new cartridges touch base before you need them. In any case, if your printing needs vary, so you go some time without printing and after that print significantly over multi day or two, you can undoubtedly come up short on ink in one rock solid print day and still end up out of ink.

One extra issue is that HP makes a decent attempt to get you pursue Instant Ink both when you introduce the printer and each time you change ink cartridges, giving your updates on the printer's front-board LCD. On the off chance that you don't pursue one of the Instant Ink designs, the updates on the LCD can turn into a rehashing irritation, in spite of the fact that an as a matter of fact minor one.


On the off chance that you need a printer for your home office, just as increasingly broad home use, or you basically need one with better content quality and quicker print speed for business applications than the HP Envy 4520 All-in-One Printer conveys, consider the Brother MFC-J470DW. In the event that you needn't bother with office-driven highlights like an ADF, in any case, aren't worried about content quality or print speed for reports, and can utilize interfacing utilizing Wi-Fi Direct, or you locate HP's Instant Ink program alluring for its guarantee of a generally unsurprising running expense every month, the 4520 is a sensible pick, however not a convincing one.
