HP Envy 5530 e-All-in-One Series Computer Printer
|Available on Amazon - Click to Purchase|
I recently upgraded the operating system on my home desktop computer. As a result, my old printer could no longer 'talk' to my computer, so I needed to purchase a new printer. I wasn't surprised, as my old printer was 8 years old and was made for operating systems 4 upgrades ago!
After getting my newly revised computer back, I went shopping for a compatible printer, first doing some research online. I knew I wanted a printer that would do more than print, as I often need to make copies of documents and I do a lot of scanning. The computer tech who upgraded my computer advised me to first look at the prices of ink cartridges and find a model that was inexpensive, since the ink is the biggest ongoing expense you will have with a printer.

HP Envy Printer Model 5530
Needless to say, I am VERY pleased with my new HP Envy 5530 e-All-in-One (print-copy-scan) computer printer! It has a color control panel on the front you can activate with the touch of a finger (or use the printer controls from the computer). The ink cartridges and paper are both easy to load. You can print from your smartphone or your tablet, and from an Internet-connected PC. And it has wireless capabilities so it can be located anywhere you need it to be.
This HP Envy printer has so many more features than my old printer did. For instance, it is able to do two-sided printing, and you can view and print photos from the color touchscreen and produce borderless, lab-quality photos. And the best part, when I was ready to buy, I found that this HP printer was on Sale!
So now my home office is all set for awhile – a completely revamped desktop computer with a new OS and additional RAM…. And, a brand new spiffy-looking printer.
