HP Envy 5640 Wireless Printer - Excellent!

I really like this printer. It was so simple to set it up, including connecting the computers and Ipads to the printers' wireless system. I have tested the various jobs it can do - print (black & white, and colour), scanned different sizes, and straight copying. Everything worked very well. I totally recommend this for a home office. Price was great and Best Buy customer service is excellent. Thanks!

Great for home use!

As advertised. Takes up a small space. Has everything I need. Was easy to set up. Printing quality seems very good. I'm happy. 5 stars (your review page is not pulling up stars for me.)

Every new printer means tossing old ink

Product took 10 minutes to set up and did an acceptable b/w print job. It goes into (unwanted) sleep mode far too quickly and there is no way to turn that "feature" off. It's one reason I've made this a 3 Star review The other is I am sick and tired of throwing out recently opened ink because the previous HP model stopped working and the new one uses a different cartridge.

Great Printer!

I bought this printer on a one-day flash sale. What a deal! The printer arrived as scheduled and it was very easy to set up. The photo quality is great. It's very handy to be able to print from my IPhone and IPad. I recommend this product.

Hp ENVY 5640

printer is great, seems to work fast, it took me a couple of days of getting to work. l had to bring in a know it all, it still does not work wifi with my computer but because l could link it usb it now works and my tablet and phone are on wifi. Still have not figured out how to print pictures from my computer, somehow it does access the 4 X 6 format and always to go to the full page. l must simply do not know how to do it, so don't use it except when printing from my tablet. Not impressed with the help desk.

Easy to set-up

I've only had this printer for a week so my evaluation can only speak to set-up and initial quality and functionality. The set-up was very straight forward and simple. I used the supplied CD but you can also download the drivers online. The photo and copy quality is excellent for the price I paid. I really like the dedicated photo paper tray and automatic pop out support for your copies. Time will tell whether ink usage, durability and scan quality and facility are also up to my initial evaluations.

Disappointed...

After reading many positive reviews, we decided to purchase this printer. It has given us trouble since day one, unfortunately... We had trouble setting it up (took many attempts/several hours), then, once connected, it would not print from any Microsoft Office software (which is apparently a common problem, if you research the topic further on the internet - you have to do all sorts of troubleshooting to 'possibly' make it print from Word, Excel, etc...), it has printed documents several days (!) after initially being sent the printer and now has a mysterious error that keeps appearing, asking us to turn the printer on and off, to try to correct (but it doesn't correct it). We tried it out for two weeks and are returning it, unfortunately, as we don't have hours and hours to waste on troubleshooting/getting the printer to print normal, everyday documents.

Great but on sale post xmas

Got this from an email notice of one day sale. Half price deal. shipped fast and was easy to set up following HP instructions. I have had several HP printers before and only HP. This one has double sided printing feature. Uses HP62 version ink while my 3510e uses HP61. I wish there wern't so many different cartridge types. They have been different in every one of my four HPs. I was worried for the touch LCD control panel but it seems ok since after setup I rarely need to touch it. I hope this one is as good as all me previous HPs.

Great deal, great printer

Purchased this printer for a great price on the black Friday sale. So worth it, it's so easy to print from all of my devices, and the print quality is great. It even comes with some photo paper. I also signed up for the HP ink program, and so far that has gone really well. Cannot say enough about this printer, it's really great and really easy to use.

Great product

This product set up easily, and worked right away (with Mac laptop). Printing quality isn't quite as crisp as I would like, but just may be the case with the inkjet type of printer. It was really affordable and meets all my needs. A bit bulky due to being a scanner - but overall, can't complain!

Versatile and very good printer

Bought on sale at excellent price. It is very versatile and when used wireless can print from smart phone, tablet, computer. Easy load tray for paper and photo paper with a very good end product. An extra feature that seems to be neat is the ink deal, Even on the 50 copy deal it should be cheaper. If not cancel it. So far would buy again.

Excellent Choice

My last HP printer was over 10 years old. Time for a change. Having seen the reviews after a friend bought one, I purchased the HP ENVY 5640. It was very easy to install, and now serves me well as a printer, copier, scanner and FAX machine. It's completely wireless, all you have to do is plug it in to the power. The print results are crisp and clear, just like a laser printer. Whether you purchase at the full price - or wait for it to go on sale - it's worth every penny.

Returned twice

Not sure if I just got a bad production line or not, but I replaced this printer twice. Had it for a couple of days and it started printing a entire black page of smuge. Replaced with a second one and after about a week the printer stoped printing colour. Unit said change cartridge bad head and it still did not work. So I returned that one as well. Took credit till I can find another model number I want. However BestBuy was excellent. No problem with returning printers.

If you are really looking for good value & awesome quality printing look no further

we were lucky and picked up this printer for (price) , but don't be fooled, it's worth every penny at ( price! I have always gone high end on computer printers thinking they will print better, last longer, etc. This printer works perfect, fast, all the features you use most (wi-fi, scanner, photo copier, etc.) It doesn't take up a lot of space and it's easy to load paper, change print cartridges, etc. and on top of all that, the ink cartridge replacements are very reasonably priced. Now I know you don't have to put out big bucks to get a good printer. Look no further, this printer is awesome at a GREAT PRICE.

What a deal!

I've owned more expensive printers who haven't worked as well as the Envy 5640 does! I give it five stars. I love the idea that it's wireless. It is placed at the other end of my office and works like a charm. Bravo and kudos!

Great Price

I got this printer on sale for a great price. The first time I tried to print in colour the photos all came out green. After doing a test I found out that the magenta was not working. I took the print out to the store and they decided to replace not just the cartridge but the whole machine. No hassles. It now works very well. I have tried printing both documents and pictures, scanning and copying. Remember the easy exchange is only for 30 days so try all the functions to make sure the unit works.

I got the lemon

ordered this printer online and when I received it, it just didn't work. It kept on saying there was a paper jam even before I inserted paper, then it kept saying that the ink cartridges were stuck .. Had to bring back the printer to the store but they didn't have anymore in stock so they couldn't do anything for me besides give me a refund.

Was okay :)

I bought this one on a sales price and paid around [price] but the next week a 5660 was on sales for [price]. So I had to return it and get the latest model. Nice Printer for the price though, but whoever is planning to buy this should be aware that it's an inkjet so they will have to buy ink every now and then.

nice printer

bought this printer on sale, online and had it delivered even though i live 2 k's from the store so the value was excellent. very easy to set up and like the fact that i can easily print from my phone or tablet. however i went to print some name badges and the printer would not recognize paper size. I tried to do a custom set size but again would not recognize these changes. to make a long story short I contact HP on line and they fixed the problem by installing another driver in about 45 minutes the service from BB and HP was excellent and enjoy dealing with companies that provide great customer service

Good bang for the buck!

I've had it for nearly a month, mind you I bought it during Black Friday - Very user friendly setup. - You can't run into a problem setting this up and if you do, it's your COMPUTER the problem (probably own an outdated one). - Wireless, which is great these days! Cons: - The black ink cartridge failed after 3 weeks, therefore I had to get a new black ink cartridge [price]. It could have been a defected one to begin with. Although, even with that extra purchase, I was far away from the regular price of the printer. Overall, it is great, it sets up easily and if some people took the time to read the description, it does not fax, something that people will cease to use... but if you MUST have the fax, get the model up: 7640. And please don't compare this printer to a laser printer, especially if you paid [price] for this.

Good bang for buck

Bought this today. Set up was a breeze. Not necessary to connect a usb printer cable, long as you have a home network router it connects wirelessly for set up. Also downloaded the hp app for my phone and laptop to print wireless. Pretty good so far. Great price i picked up at.

Decent enough

The printer was quick and easy to set up, however, it took two tries to set up the ink actually calibrated and there are horizontal lines through everything I print. They aren't a huge deal but I would never print a picture on photo paper with this printer even though they include it, it would be a waste of ink.

HP Wireless Printer

This is our 1st wireless printer and we love it. It prints quickly and quietly and with good quality. The cartridges are also very reasonable as we found out with other wireless printers--you can spend a lot of money replacing them. We would buy this product again.

Great printer

This is a really nice inkjet printer! The first one I bought unfortunately the printer head was gone, but Best Buy replaced it when I bought it in. The replaced printer I set mine up wirelessly and there were a few issues with it occasionally not working and I had to reconnect it. However, this is an amazing printer, as you can download the tool doctor and assistance for support and using that, so far fixes the wifi wireless issues whenever it happens. I really recommend this inkjet. This printer is so awesome and I just love it! I'm looking for a wireless laser black and white too and hope I find one that works just as amazing and hassle free!

Works perfect with Macbook, iPhone and iPad

The best printer I've ever used. It works perfect with the Macbok, iPhone and iPad, though I spend nearly an hour to configure it cause the guidance is somehow confused(probably it needs less steps than the guidance provided to configure). Printing, Scanning and Copying quality is high, but the speed are not that fast compared to the old HP printer I used before.

Amazing printer with amazing price!

I bought this printer for school while it was on sale, and it proves to be amazing! (Makes me wonder why it was on sale!) The printing quality is really good. It can also print photos which is pretty amazing! The photo quality is acceptable considering it's only printed from a home printer. (It comes with a couple photo paper for you to try it out!) Printing speed is a little slow. It is also a bit loud while it prints. It took a while to set up as for some reason it wouldnt connect to my wifi at first. But once it's set up it's good to go! Overall, absolutely an amazing printer for it's price!

Amazing

Got this on the flash sale and I just gotta say AMAZING the set up was a breeze, I am not a tech person so I just have to say that in itself was a great selling feature for me! I did have to fight with my new router. It was in 5G and this can only go over 2.4ghz..... so a few adult words and a glance at the manual and it was golden. Get it, if you need a professional printer buy it but if you want a printer that makes you look like the professional.... get this. Now! :)

Too slow at Printing Documents

My review is based on my comparison with an canon inkjet printer we as a set of friends owned together. I have noticed the this printer has a considerably slow speed of printing simple PDF documents, black and white, no graphics. If time is not a consideration for you, the printer has a very nice interface and is easy to setup, something which was a big problem with the canon printer.

Does Not Work

I spent about 4 hours trying to get this to work with my MacBook Pro. It is configured on HP Utility in my computer and the printer itself is connected to the same wireless network as my computer. It will not print, scan, NOR photocopy. I do not recommend this printer unless you have lots of spare time to try to get it to actually function.
