Editors’ Rating: good
On the lower end of HP’s Envy line of inkjets, the Envy 5055 All-in-One Printer ($129.99) is an entry-level all-in-one (AIO) built with families and home offices in mind. Like our consumer multifunction Editors’ Choice, Epson’s Expression Premium XP-7100 Small-in-One, the Envy 5055 prints well (especially photos), but unlike the somewhat pricier XP-7100, this HP AIO is a little short on features. Most notably, it lacks an automatic document feeder (ADF) for sending multipage documents to the scanner. What the Envy does have over the XP-7100 and some other competitors is an option for reducing running costs via HP’s Instant Ink program. If you don’t do a lot of multipage copy or scan jobs, the Envy 5055, paired with Instant Ink, is a sensible pick for a home office with light needs.
