HP Envy 5660
- Auto duplexing
- Wi-Fi connectivity
- Prints through the cloud
- Very slow
- No Ethernet
- No Fax
With everything going wireless, its only natural for HP to try this possibility on one of their printers. Whether this has paid off remains to be seen and that's what I'm gonna be tackling today. Here is the HP Envy 5660 for you.
Made for home use, this neatly built small all-in-one (with no faxing mind you) has print, scan, and copy capabilities. It is small and lightweight at 6.3 by 17.9 by 16.1 inches (HWD) and 15 pounds that makes it easy to fit in. Setting up was odd because instead of looking automatically for updated drivers, it takes you to a URL that will have you look for it manually.
Very surprisingly and daring on HP's part the only connection options are USB and Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi Direct. You can print through the cloud. If you have a Wi-Fi access point on the network, you can also connect through from iOS, Android, Windows, Google Chrome, Kindle, and Blackberry smartphones and tablets. The problem here is that most printing projects need to be made in a pinch and you can imagine hurrying up to fiddle around with your phone, or wait for the slow USB to connect this is an absolute chore. You can connect to a single PC via USB cable instead of Ethernet making it unbearably slow. Paper handling is a mixed bag at best, with a 125 sheet input tray but duplexing makes up for it. There is no ADF so you need to feed the scanned pages manually in the flatbed. Its scan, copy, and print speeds are borderline painfully slow and low quality, probably because of its exclusively wireless and USB connectivity that simply isn't ready just yet. Image output is obviously sub-par as well and is honestly disappointing.
If the print speed and connectivity was made easier by an Ethernet port, this could have been a fair purchase. At a $70-$90 price tag the HP Envy 5660 is a cheap all-in-one indeed but the basic features, crippling connection options, poor print quality and the odd setup will turn people away from this. There are much better offerings in this price range that's for sure. I sincerely hope HP has learned its lesson with this one. Look before you leap next time, we still need that Ethernet port, mkay?Read full review Hide full review
