The HP Envy 4500 has a very appropriate name (Envy). Other printer manufacturers should be envious of this printer.

We particularly like the printer's copying ability, which produced accurate colours in our tests when copying photos.

The specs around this model are strong and it’s wi-fi/air-play which, for the price, won me over.

Faxing doesn't work, neither does the scanner, really
Well, it's inexpensive. Good for very casual printing... maybe for your high school kids. The fax capability has not worked properly since I bought this printer. Also the scanning app that comes with this printer doesn't always work consistently. So I have to resort to using my computer's native scanning tool. So yeah, it's cheap. But for another hundred bucks, you can get something that's far more reliable. I say pass on this one.
