The front control panel consists of a small monochrome LCD (4.5 x 3 cm) and eight buttons a little hard to the touch. It allows to navigate easily in the menus, but not to display the photos, damage. The HP Envy MFP 4507 has a USB port, but also a Wi-Fi interface to print wirelessly from your laptop, smartphone or tablet. It works either within a Wi-Fi network, or in direct connection with the mobile device. You can even send him documents by mail! To print on Android, HP offers free ePrint and Printer Control applications. More complete, the latter also makes it possible to scan and to know the state of the cartridges. Too bad it is not possible to activate the duplex mode to save paper.

Apple devices do not even need apps because the printer uses AirPrint technology. The printing of office documents (Web, internship report, etc.) is quite fast. Thus, in standard mode, we measured speeds of 6.6 pages per minute (ppm) in monochrome and 3.3 ppm in color. The quality is then average, because there is a slight lack of precision in the characters of the text. Moving to draft mode allows you to go about twice as fast. The prints are in this case more pale, but remains legible. In photo mode, count approximately 75 s for a 10 x 15 print (67 s on average). The quality is still fairly average, due to a slight lack of detail and the appearance - sometimes - of some parasitic white lines. This problem occurs especially if you print from the Windows Photo Viewer.
The cost of use remains quite high in office automation: 8.1 cents on the page in black and 25.4 cents in color. However, this price is for standard cartridges purchased from HP's official website. You can find them cheaper at other online merchants. For example, the respective costs fall to 6.4 and 20 cents for a purchase at LDLC. Finally, the flat color scanner offers a very good quality of scanning, but the operation is a little slow: 73 s for an A4 color photo in 600 p / p against 50 s on average. On the other hand, an A4 color photocopy takes only 38 s for a satisfactory quality (29 s on average). For a low price - 80 euros - this multifunction fulfills its office properly. We regret that the print quality is just average. Its high page cost reserves it for occasional use. However, the device is easy to use, especially for Wi-Fi functions.
