HP Envy Pro 6455 All-in-One review at PCMagPROS

  • Reasonable purchase price
  • Low running costs with Instant Ink
  • Good overall print quality
  • Strong feature set for price

CONS

  • Wasteful two-cartridge design holds all four inks
  • Cost per page exceptionally high without Instant Ink subscription
  • Sluggish to print
  • Lacks flash-memory-device port

THE BOTTOM LINE

The HP Envy Pro 6455 prints well and, if you sign up for HP’s Instant Ink subscription program, inexpensively, making it a good value for families and home offices.

MSRP $149.99

HP’s Envy Pro 6455 All-in-One ($149.99) is an entry-level multifunction printer designed for family and home-office use. Like the Editors’ Choice Canon Pixma TR8520 Wireless Home Office All-in-One, the Envy Pro 6455 prints well, if rather slowly, and it comes with a strong basic feature set, including an automatic document feeder (ADF) for scanning and copying multipage documents. Also like the Pixma, the Envy prints good-looking photos. Where the HP AIO tops the Canon, though, is that—when you opt for HP’s Instant Ink monthly ink subscription service—the Envy Pro costs much less to use, especially when printing in color. Good print quality, a decent feature set for the price, and low running costs make the Envy Pro 6455 an excellent alternative to our current favorite among entry-level color AIOs for the home and home-office set.
