HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 4535 Review

April 25, 2016

An efficient all-in-one.

Printers used to be an expensive accessory not because of the main unit but because of the replacement cartridges that you would have to use during the lifespan of the printer. But HP somehow managed to offer low cost cartridges with no compromise in quality – a term they call Ink Advantage. These line of printers offer a low cost of ownership making it a suitable choice for any home or small office.

Let’s take a look at the HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 4535: it’s a budget all-in-one printer that can print, scan and copy – all without the need of wires. Just hook up the printer to your local network and you print your documents and images wirelessly.

Moving away from the straight-line design, the 4535 features a curved design along with a front panel with a 2.2-inch touchscreen where you can control most of the printer’s functions.

Setting up the 4535 is easy, and the since it only connects through Wi-Fi, it saves you the hassle of plugging in cables. That being said, it would have been great if the 4535 offered an Ethernet connection.

The 4535 also supports HP’s ePrint technology that lets you setup an email address for the printer where you can send any email, document and image and the printer will print it right away – no matter where you are as long as the printer is connected to the internet.

Print quality is definitely above average – fonts were smooth and colors were excellent. Print speed was decent, especially on draft mode. Printing a full color page at high resolution also yielded great results, taking about a minute to complete.

What I liked is that the 4535 also included a quiet mode that lets the printer work quietly than the usual but will take longer to print. The 4535 also supports auto duplex printing – meaning that you won’t have to turn the page if you would want to print on two sides of a paper.

Overall, while the HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 4535 performed decently – it’s the overall cost of ownership that makes this printer worth having.
