HP Envy 100 All-In-One Printer - Designer Multitasker
3 July 2011
Excerpt: Right out of the box, it's clear that the ePrint-capable HP Envy 100 is one sleek-looking printer. What remains is to find out how it actually performs and how functional is its design. And that's where we come in. So dig in for the detailed review.
Pros: Refreshing design, Able to print content from the Internet without a computer, Supports HP ePrint and Apple AirPrint functions
Cons: Single 80-sheet paper input tray, Mediocre print speeds
Summary: Boasting a touch-screen display, an app store, and ePrint (a remote printing service), the HP Envy 100 features loads of innovation in a slickly designed chassis. We wouldn't buy this printer for its image quality, but the convenience of ePrint and the potential of the ePrintCenter app store earn the HP Envy 100 our recommendation.
Pros: New ePrint feature enables wireless printing by e-mail; Web-based ePrintCenter offers expanded functionality via downloadable apps; ePrintCenter with free app store offers versatile functionality; enclosed cartridge bay for quiet printing; slick design with low-profile footprint.
Cons: Slow print speed; tricky wireless setup; two-ink-cartridge bay produces mediocre photo quality; low-volume paper input tray can only hold 80 sheets at a time.
Excerpt: HP's Envy sub-brand is applied to its premium models, which are distinguished by their slick styling. This inkjet multifunction peripheral (MFP) is a striking mix of glossy black plastic and brushed metal alloy. Like several Epson MFPs including the Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD , the Envy 100 looks like a high-end VHS recorder from the early 90s.
Excerpt: With iOS 4.2’s release last week, we thought it a perfect time to try out one of HP’s new ePrint enabled printers (that’s HP’s fancy marketing term) which means you can print directly to them using AirPrint (Apple’s fancy marketing term) via Wi-Fi on an iPhone or iPad.
Pros: Easy setup; nice design; AirPrint support; some interesting apps
Cons: Quite big; slow printing; touchscreen is difficult to use
Summary: HP wants to bring some glamour to the all-in-one printer market with this sleek little number. HP's Envy brand is mainly known for its sleek, aluminium-clad premium laptops, but now it's branching out. With the Envy 100, HP wants to inject an unlikely shot of glamour into the world of printing, scanning and copying. It's rare for a multifunction device to stir our loins, but this squat block of patterned glass, gloss black and smooth contours gives it a good go.
