Featuring a unique design, the HP Envy line of multifunction printers targets families looking for a handy, everyday, and photo-savvy model. The black plastics used are of decent quality and the finishes are of a good standard. The HP ENVY 4522 is no exception to the rule, although it must be admitted that with the efforts made by the main manufacturers in recent months to reduce the size of their printers, the models designed on this mold are starting to seem a little bulky to us. In the latter area, all settings are made directly via the small monochrome touch screen on the front. With a diagonal of 5.5 cm, it deserves to be a little more responsive and a little bigger to improve the comfort of use. Whether you are used to the HP menus or not, it only takes a few minutes to make the main settings before you are ready to start your first impressions. Scanning, copying, and printing – this makes the all-in-one photo printer fit for the home office or private user. The inkjet printer prints documents or photos in high resolution, not only via a USB connection but also wirelessly from mobile devices. Nevertheless, the device does not require a lot of space and is therefore also suitable for users who do not have a separate study. The HP ENVY 4522 printer has only one input paper tray, which capacity is limited to 100 sheets of 80g / m², which is however consistent with the recommended monthly print volume for this model (up to 400 pages). Small adjustable plastic rulers and marks in the tray ensure that each type of paper is correctly placed before printing. The receptacle where the printed sheets are stacked is a simple articulated arm that automatically comes out when printing is initiated. It’s simple and efficient, even if the system shows its limits when the quantity of printed pages becomes significant. The scanner is a flatbed model that works at a maximum resolution of 1200 dpi in 24 bits. This scanner is pretty fast, knowing that it only takes 13 seconds to scan a document at 100 dpi and 14 seconds for a 10 x 15 photo at 300 dpi. A good speed that we find on the side of the copy function, since photocopying an A4 document in black and white takes only 10 seconds, while it takes 23 seconds to perform the same operation in color. The quality of these photocopies is correct, even if we perceive a slightly degraded quality on the texts and that the graphic of our test page appears visibly less defined. The network connection of the HP ENVY 4522 is excellent. The connection is possible via cable or WLAN and it can also be addressed directly via the smartphone via app or AirPrint. Direct printing options via USB or memory card are sorely missed. The WLAN connection is stable, but there are problems with the detection of 5 GHz networks.
