HP Envy Inspire 7255e All-in-One Review at PCMag


HP’s Envy Inspire 7255e prints well and gives you a free six months of ink if you sign up for HP+, making it a good but not class-leading family or home-office value.

MSRP $229.99

    • Low running costs with Instant Ink and HP+
    • One-year extension on warranty with HP+
    • Decent overall print quality
    • No automatic document feeder
    • Wasteful two-cartridge design
    • Very high costs per page if you don’t use Instant Ink
    • Sluggish print speed
    • No USB or flash card port

HP Envy Inspire 7255e All-in-One Review – William Harrel – January 30, 2023

HP’s Envy Inspire 7255e ($229.99, on sale when we published this for $179.99) is a multifunction inkjet printer that replaces the company’s Envy Photo 6255. Rather than look up that 2018 model, however, you’d do better to check out our review of the Envy Inspire 7955e from a year ago—this new all-in-one is nearly identical to that printer, with an automatic document feeder (ADF), Ethernet, and a few other features taken out. Overall, the Inspire 7255e is a sound machine for home offices or families, or for use as a personal AIO printer. Compared to photo-centric consumer machines from Canon and Epson, though, its print quality leaves a little to be desired in some situations. It does, however, come with six months of free ink via HP’s Instant Ink and HP+ services, making it more than adequate for low-volume use, and assuming you don’t copy or scan multipage documents all that often.
