Conclusion: Built around an ink jet printer and sheet-fed scanner, the HP Officejet 4215 all-in-one is aimed at those who want basic fax, copy, and scan features but don't need to scan photos or pages from bulky sources like magazines. Print speed is on the slow slide.
Pros: Output quality is very good or just short of very good across the board. Sheet-fed scanner allows scanning, faxing, and copying. Small footprint.
Cons: Sheet-fed scanner limits usefulness for photos and thick originals. Performance is relatively slow.
Conclusion: As a 600 by 1,200-dpi, 36-bit color scanner and copier, the 4215 is limited by its fax-machine-style sheet feeder, which can't handle magazines, books, or large maps or illustrations, but competently scans normal business documents and handles black-and-white or color copying.
