HP Envy 5530 e-All-in-One review: Home printer has print quality and cheaper inks in its favor
10 December 2013
Summary: Low-cost home printers tend to be unexciting, but this one stands out for having better-than-usual print quality and a new, cloud-controlled Instant Ink program that is cheaper per page than its regular cartridges are.
Pros: Impressive output quality, Very easy to use, Instant Ink program offers some savings over regular inks, Automatic duplexing
Cons: Very slow performance, Regular inks are very pricey
Excerpt: Clearly aimed primarily at home—rather than office—needs, the HP Envy 5530 e-All-in-One offers better than par photo quality plus par quality for graphics and text. It also throws in some home-printer features like built-in templates for graph paper and lined notebook paper. As with virtually any letter-size printer, it can also serve for light-duty home office use.
