HP Envy 6455e All-in-One Printer Review at PCMagTHE BOTTOM LINE

The HP Envy 6455e All-In-One prints well and, if you sign up for HP’s Instant Ink subscription program, inexpensively, making it a decent value for light duty in homes and home offices.

MSRP $179.99

PROS

    • Low running costs with HP Instant Ink
    • Good overall print quality
    • Decent feature set for price

CONS

    • Cost per page exceptionally high without Instant Ink
    • Two-cartridge design wastes ink
    • Slow performance
    • No flash memory device slot

Take the HP Envy Pro 6455 reviewed here in June 2020, drop the “Pro,” and add an “e,” and you have the HP Envy 6455e, an entry-level all-in-one printer priced at $179.99. As we saw with the larger and more robust HP OfficeJet Pro 9015e (one of PCMag’s Best of the Year for 2021), that lowercase letter at the end of the model number means the 6455e comes with a free six-month subscription to HP’s Instant Ink cartridge-replacement program. Like its predecessor, the Envy 6455e prints well, if slowly, and is inexpensive to buy and use, making it a sensible solution for families and home offices with relatively low print and copy needs—say, 100 to 200 pages per month.
