HP Envy 7640 review

 

Affordable all-in-one packs in the features but loses points for style and print quality

Easy to setup ; Packs in loads of features ; Photo and plain paper trays

Average print quality ; Occasional paper jams

A capable home or small office printer with plenty of features that's let down by its middling print quality and bland design.

HP Envy 7640

 

HP's Envy all-in-ones started life as small-format lifestyle printers, designed for living rooms. They've since developed into more conventional home or home-office devices, and the Envy 7640 is a bigger, more technically-sophisticated multi-function...

The HP Envy 7640 is a well-designed and easy-to-use MFP, with useful features such as front-panel USB and SD card slots and twin paper trays. However, these may not be enough to steer you away from rivals that offer better speed and value for money.

HP Envy 7640 review

 

HP's all-in-one looks like it's destined for the home office, but it serves up enviable photo prints, too

What about the cost of consumables? Please when reviewing printers give some idea of cartridge capacity and costs (costs per page B&W and full page colour photo or mixed content).

HP Envy 7640

 

This is a four in one unit as it has the ability to send and receive faxes. So not only a rather nice printer and a good unit for the occasional copy but also useful for scanning both to a PC and it also has the ability to scan to a card or USB stick.

Thed HP Envy 7640 measures 44x45x20cm and weighs less than 8Kg, the second figure, the depth, includes the power lead which protrudes beyond the official measurements. Even in its small height there are two inbuilt paper trays an A4 one at the base...

HP Envy 7640 e-All-in-One Printer Review and Ratings

 

This inexpensive inkjet can benefit from the low cost per page of HP's Instant Ink service, but we found photo output on this ostensibly photo-centric AIO lacking.

Low street price ; Easy to set up and use ; Low cost per page with Instant Ink ; Small, light ; Supports both USB thumb drives and SD cards ; Only Envy with an ADF

Subpar photo print quality ; ADF doesn’t auto-duplex ; Sluggish to print ; Uses two-cartridge ink system ; Small input and output trays, with latter somewhat flimsy

The only Envy with an ADF, the Envy 7640 has many of the advantages as its Envy brethren, many of the same disadvantages, and a couple of its own. As mentioned, like with several other late-model HP inkjets, the Instant Ink service allows you to print...

Delighted with this printer. Easy to set up and easy to use. Prbably the best overall printer I have had; though photographic printing could be improved.

Very good buy

 

It was easy to set up and prints from iPhones and PC without difficulty. It's ability to copy, print and PDF are just what I was looking for. A really good buy.

Really Efficient Printer

 

This is a great printer - really easy to setup and use. It has a good touchscreen display and nice features. It can be used with HP Instant Ink so we always have a supply of ink on hand - brilliant!

Consumer review by: Shadoroba (johnlewis.com)

Cheap but good

 

This printer replaced my large, heavy Officejet Pro 8500A which I had for 5 years. I thought the print quality on the 8500 pretty good but the Envy was even better. Bright and crisp. My only gripes are: No USB cable included, Original cartridges only...
