REVIEWS

FOR HP ENVY 6455

HP Envy 6455 is an all-in-one printer that is designed for small home printing, scanning, copying, and faxing needs. This inkjet printer’s color accuracy is great, but at the same time, its page yield and print speed are not satisfactory. The photo print quality is excellent, and so, it’s an ideal choice for photo printing.

Even if this printer comes with a flatbed scanner and an ADF, it doesn’t support duplex scanning and printing off a USB thumb drive.

FOR HP ENVY 6458

Like HP Envy 6455, Envy 6458 is also an all-in-one wireless inkjet printer that comes with a six months free ink through HP Plus. The print speed, copy/print resolutions are great, but it doesn’t support duplex scanning and Ethernet connectivity. The printer comes with a touchscreen.

This HP printer is an ideal choice for small home and office printing needs.
