HP Envy Pro 6452 All-in-One Review at PCMag

THE BOTTOM LINE

The HP Envy Pro 6452 All-in-One 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 $109.99


 

PROS

    • Low running costs with Instant Ink, with two months free
    • Reasonable purchase price
    • Good overall print quality
    • Strong feature set, including ADF
    • High-tech and modern-looking

CONS

    • Wasteful two-cartridge ink set holds all four inks
    • Cost per page exceptionally high without Instant Ink
    • No flash drive port or SD card slot
    • Sluggish

HP’s Envy Pro 6452 All-in-One ($109.99) is an entry-level multifunction inkjet printer aimed at families and micro offices. Where most all-in-ones (AIOs) of its kind lose points for their high operating costs, in this case, subscribing to HP’s Instant Ink service makes using this printer a relative bargain. This Envy sells for about $30 less than our current low-end Editors’ Choice, the Brother MFC-J491DW; however, that printer’s running costs are sky-high versus the 6452 paired with Instant Ink. This little Envy’s low price and running costs make it solid for home offices, family rooms, and dorms. It’s good for 200 to 300 pages a month—just enough to edge it into our slot for favorite starter AIO for homes and home offices.
