Review: HP Envy 100 Multifunction Printer

Wired: Review – HP Envy 100 Multifunction Printer

Color output on glossy photo paper is good, but the printer is slow and leaves marks on some paper, the reviewer says. It’s also slow, and many of the Web-based applications accessible from the built-in 3.5-inch LCD (eg. printing tic-tac-toe boards) are pointless.

“The HP Envy 100 box is daring me to open it, but I am afraid. Four words: Print Scan Copy Web, hover over an ominous printer on the box front. I gently slip open the top, anticipating the terror of endless plastic wrap and cardboard. What’s this? A tote bag? Sweet, I didn’t even have to donate to PBS! Yes, even mere mortals like yourself, and not just obscenely “rich” and “handsome” tech writers like me, will have your HP Envy 100 wrapped in a delicious free tote bag.

But seriously, the Envy’s packaging is a welcome change from the usual mess of plastic and parts. And while there is the requisite foam and some baggies, at least HP put a bit more effort into presentation while minimizing unnecessary bad-for-mother-earth clutter. Plus, a free tote bag never hurt anyone.”
