    The HP ENVY Photo 7855 All-in-One Printer is the new Top-Of-The Line home office / small office printing / scanning / faxing solution provider. I have owned numerous HP printers, as well as several All-in-One machines from various manufacturers. I find HP offers the lowest cost ink (HP quotes less than 5 cents / printed page) & the most reliable hardware. LIKES: 1- Perfect Size & Weight: At approximately 18" X 16" X 8", it does not have a huge footprint for a home office, and is heavy enough (about 17#) not to move around or tilt when you raise the flatbed scanner. 2- HP proven reliability (HP printers are consistently at the top or near the top in reliability surveys). 3- USB jack on the front panel is super convenient for loading documents or photos to print, without having to reach around the back of the machine. 4- Amazing quality black & white printing; very good quality color photos. 5- Wireless Printing: 2.4 Ghz WiFi connects effortlessly to both Mac (I use Mac Sierra 10.12.6 OS) & Windows. I did not encounter any connection issues printing from several devices located on 3 separate floors by WiFi. 6- Beautiful Color Touchscreen on the front panel makes selecting & adjusting photos foolproof before printing. 7- SD Card Slot accepts the media from your digital camera & makes printing photos directly from camera a breeze. 8- "HP Smart" App (free) offers the easiest way to share photos to social media, print directly from your phone or tablet, as well as select the function you want. It is unquestionably the very best printing app available today! It is rated 5 / 5 stars in the Apple App Store with 31,248 reviews! 9- This is the latest "Instant Ink" printer. I have not tried this subscription service yet, but it is very interesting! I particularly like the larger cartridge size & the low monthly charge. No more worries about which color is running low in the ink cartridge, either. All colors are replaced monthly with new black & color cartridges. The printer alerts HP to send you the ink automatically. 10- Large 125 sheet source paper tray + 15 sheet photo tray + 25 sheet Automatic Document Feeder. The Document Feeder does not jamb on bent paper - it really works. 11- I "fired" my home phone, so I no longer Fax. Therefore I could not try this feature. The manual describes how the built-in Fax operates at 9.6 Kbps, 14.4 Kbps and 33.6 Kbps speeds & can color fax to and from color fax machines. 12- Apple AirPrint & HP ePrint are built-in. This enables direct printing from most phones & tablets. DISLIKES: None so far. SUMMARY: The HP ENVY Photo 7855 prints high quality photos, scans in amazing detail, and is a huge time saver because it is so easy and fast to use, especially with the "HP Smart" App. It is a tool that can boost home office productivity & it earns my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!

    A fantastic upgrade from my first Envy.

    The HP ENVY Photo 7855 serves it's purpose as a general, everyday printer for most home/personal tasks. I previously owned an ENVY 4504 that I purchased on Black Friday a few years ago, since all I needed was really basic printing for school. The thing that surprised me the most about this new model is that it prints both B/W and color pages a lot faster than my old Envy did. It also holds a lot more paper so I don't need to be loading the tray as often, and in terms of build quality it seems a lot sturdier and more "well made" than my older one. I can definitely say that HP has been spending a lot of their resources on improving their printers over the last several years. Taking the printer out of the box and setting it up wasn't as much of a breeze, particularly because I have HP Instant Ink and had everything set up on my old Envy, so I had to spend a bit more time moving everything over and at one point contacting HP Connected support to get my subscription moved over to my new printer. After jumping through that brief hurdle, everything else was smooth sailing. I'm impressed with the print quality of the ENVY Photo 7855 for it being an inkjet printer. I recently purchased higher quality 32 lb copy paper that's generally meant for laser printers, but was really shocked to see just how amazing my B/W documents came out of this printer, and these were with default print quality settings in Windows! Printing color documents with text also looked fascinating, but of course with any photo printing on non-photo paper, the images looked "okay" although not as high-quality as they would be on actual photo paper. I wish HP included a trial set of photo paper to use but they did not include any. Overall, the HP ENVY Photo 4855 meets all of my general everyday printing needs and I'm sure it will for you too. If you fairly do a lot of printing, I recommend signing up for HP's Instant Ink service which saves me trips to the store and doesn't cost me as much money. For business and enterprise users, I'd recommend looking for a laser printer.

    We love this HP Envy 7855 injet all in one

    I've used HP products for printing and scanning since around 1986. So I've a lot of experience with HP products. My first scanner was a B&W HP scanner which cost me $1500 back then. That was when scanners first appeared for people to buy (a little history). This HP Envy 7855 all in one printer is a winner in all aspects. We like to print 4 by 6 photos of our grandchildren, which this printer does perfectly. It scans documents perfectly (whether B&W or color), and copies them perfectly as well. Now, I'll get to the most significant point I can make for inkjet printing. Our old HP 7520 ink cost us a lot and had issues utilizing all the ink in various cartridges. So for me any new inkjet printer had to be less expensive to operate. This HP 7855 inkjet wins that battle hands down. We signed up for the automatic ink replacement from HP and already received our first set of 2 cartridges (1 black, 1 tri-color). And they arrived slightly before the tri-color needed to be replaced first. I'm impressed! We signed up for 100 pages a month with ink mailed to us automatically (which HP monitors online). It cost us $5 a month. Translated to 4 by 6 color photo printing that makes each print cost 5 cents for the ink alone. AND, this HP printer, like those in the past, will print to any brand of photo paper (unlike another printer that shall go nameless). I'm thankfully amazed at the $$ we'll save on ink alone. HP has hit a home run with this printer and with the special ink replacement program. They do require you to mail back old empty cartridges. They included a postage free plastic envelope that you mail back the empties when the envelope is full. Life is good and my frustration with costly inkjet printing is FINALLY history. Thank-you HP!!!

    Good printer for home personal use

    For me this has been a good printer for my home office/personal use. It has a lot of usable features and I like the two sided copying feature the most. for not much money it does a good job. I printed a couple of photo's and while I do not expect to use the photo printing very often, the pictures looked very good. The convenience of sending photos to print from my mobil phone worked very well and really wasn't complicated. While not needed, adding the HP app to my phone allowed an additional feature or two for printing options from the phone. I considered some of the other HP printers in the same class or series as this one and I'm glad I spent the few extra dollars for the additional features such as the the document feeder. No complaints about printing speed or noise when compared to printers I have had in the past. I like the front loading paper tray. it is rare that I will have a large print job (20 pages or more) but if I did I'm sure it could handle it occasionally. If I printed more on a daily basis I would have looked at printers cable of higher volumes of print work and printing speed which were much more expensive, but for my needs this works very well. Setting up wasn't too bad but I did spend extra time reading about and trying out the features. The LED touch pad screen is easy to figure out when printing directly from the printer or looking up information about the printer. Life expectancy for the ink cartridges are similar to what I had before with an HP printer and this seems to be consistent with printed information from the manufacturer. Happy with my purchase.

    The long story short is that I like it. I did 4 stars because for the money I have had cheaper that were equal to this one. That said, this All-in-One is everything you would need for light personal (or small personal business) use. Printing is fast and quite whether printing in black and white and or color. I probably would not recommend for any heavy use activity because HP ink is not cheap and if you are using color, this thing Non-Laser printer eats cartridges. This is a good thing when printing picture on actual photo paper because they come out beautiful. But for someone whose wife has a thousand printed photos; I do notice that the picture needs to be of very high resolution to come out pristine. I really enjoyed the scanning feature and printing from your mobile device (I highly recommend downloading the HP print app for your phone -very cool). All around in my opinion this is a very solid luxury printer that will do everything you want and more. Again, the amount of use will (imo) dictate your overall opinion.

    Good printer, troubleshooting directions needed

    HP Envy7855- nice printer so far for the price. However, minimal directions, and impossible to find good online help. Several false sites that my computer would not let me open for security reasons, a LONG process online with useless virtual chat to get a phone number for personal assistance. Once I was able to work with someone over the phone the problem of printer not printing in color from my computer was solved in about twenty minutes. According to info/issues posted online this is a common problem with this printer, has to do with setting up the right drive connection. I didn't like having to give access to my computer to a stranger over the phone but hopefully no problems there. He was very professional and solved the problem in record time, was a pleasure to work with.

    Easy setup

    I rarely offer up reviews of products I've purchased as I seem to leave this task for others to perform. But in this case I changed my mind after having this printer now for a month. The setup was extremely easy and downloading and getting the HP app to work was per the instructions. A thumbs-up to both. The printing has been exceptional for the price point on this printer. I can save on paper by printing double-sided or choose single-sided to keep the lumber companies in business. All images, whether black & white or color seem to come out looking very sharp. I've not done a lot of photo printing yet and will update this review later if necessary but I expect good results there as well using HP photo paper. That's my story for now and I'm sticking to it.

    I bought this printer on sale about a month ago to replace another HP printer that I had for about 15 years. The print quality is OK but I do have problems printing PDF files which I haven't figured out the problem yet. I haven't tried printing any pictures yet because the majority of my printing is strictly documents. The printer does hesitate a bit but once it gets going it is OK. Also just a bit noisy compared to my previous printer. Since I only paid half price due to it being on sale I feel I got my moneys worth. I also enrolled in the instant ink program and received my first set of full cartridges within the first 10 days of owning it. Good deal if you print a lot.

    I am very happy with all the features on my new printer. It is very fast for making multiple copies and very clear. This is my first Envy printer and I am extremely pleased with it's operation and the high quality of printed photos. This printer has all of the features to meet my home printing/scanning/copying needs. Great printer for the money. So far I have used it only for printing documents from the computer and making copies, but it prints photos and scans and faxes as well. The quality of the copies has been good. It was not easy to set up however, that took some time. There was no manual or CD. I had to try and find install instructions on line. But over all this is a good printer.

    I bought this a month ago and liking it at an overall level , however there are some shortfalls, but this doesn't takes away the good part, as cost addresses those concerns. Pros: - Cost effective - All in one feature - Print/Copy/Photo - God quality photo printing (dual size option: 4*6, 5*7) - Separate trays to select paper source, as not always we want to print on regular paper or photo paper - Decent in size, not to heavy not too small - HP Ink Program is awesome and really make it very cheap to print Cons: - Printing speed is very slow, as its a inkjet printer Just one I could think of for now Overall this is a good printer for personal use.

    Very Good Printer for the price

    Purchased this printer because I had it's "Big Brother" which was fantastic but now no longer is sold. The"Sr" had a few more options, mostly in the settings, and had a doc feeder. After using this one I realize that you truly do get what you pay for, but sales can make this a good deal. This is a very good printer, prints very good (not excellent) pictures and effortlessly hooks up to your computer (software and hardware). It prints a little slower than my old one, but 5-10 seconds extra per page waiting on a color photograph is no big deal. This is a great computer for the money and they do go on sale so wait a week or two.

    I like this printer overall. The print speed is good for my needs (faster than my old Cannon MX) and color images come out fine. I don't typically print photos so I can't comment on photo quality. The software allows you to print from your phone, although I haven't tried this. My two main issues are: (1) Initial set-up with Mac High Sierra was a hassle. I was never sure that everything was eventually loaded, but it seems to work well now; (2) Scanning multiple pages to a single pdf is also a hassle. You need to call up the software in order to do this. I did it once, but now forget how I got it to work. Would I purchase this again? Sure.

    First and foremost I hate printers but decided to give it another shot. Setup was extremely simple. I have it set to my WiFi network. I also print from my smart phone and iPad. Again very easy setup. Print quality is excellent. I'm a light user so I haven't had time to experience anything bad. I like the touch screen lcd panel allows you to see ink levels, make copies, and minor editing of photos. Inexpensive ink and if you sign up for hp instant ink it's even less. Overall satisfied with the purchase.

    This is a great all-in-one printer/scanner/photocopier as well as having fax capability and designed to print photos with a special photo paper compartment in addition to the regular paper compartment. It can photocopy with paper tray feeder on top or top also flips up and you can copy on glass. You can also print remotely when you are away from home or you can create an online account to send to your own print email address. So far it has been an economical easy-to-use printer that has been working well.

    I have had a number of HP, Edson and Canon photo printers over the last 15 years. They have all done the job but none were perfect, so we continued to go professional processing for most of out photos. We are now we are grandparents and we are taking and getting any more pictures than we have in the past so I started looking at new printers. I tested at least 2 in each of the brands an I landed on the 7855. I have been amazed at the quality and sharpness of the photos I am now producing at home. Setup and printing from all my computers and mobile devices were easy and flawless! I highly recommend this printer.

    I ranked it good rather than excellent because it seems less solidly built than the one it replaced, & it takes up more space, & the screen (for setup, etc) is very small. It's predecessor, the 7510 was a workhorse for many years. Printhead finally went out & rather than replace parts piece by piece, decided on a new one with the same-plus capabilities. The ENVY 7855 does everything the old one did & more & it has wireless capability. Does a nice job on photos. Scanner/copier/printer work great. Price was reasonable. I'm very pleased with it. If you have the space for it, it's a good buy.

    I use printer basically for only printing with occasional copying needs. This printer has options to add fax capability and it does do multiple page copying which has been a good add on compared to my prior unit. Was relatively easy to install, did have assist from Geek Squad on-line to properly add to my computer - operation has been good, wish touch screen was a bit more sensitive but overall am very satisfied with the unit - Best Buy assocate, Lindsey, was EXCELLENT in helping me determine what model I needed. She is my go to person every time I go to my local Best Buy store.

    IF you want an all-in-one printer that is decent and reasonably price, it's hard to beat HP. This is not a high-end printer but it's a solid mid-range versatile printer. The networking leaves much to be desired. I recommend hard wring it to the router and connect your PC and other peripherals to the wireless network. Ink is pretty efficient but if you are planning on doing 100s of color prints, go to Kinkos. You will run through ink quicker that a fat kid goes through cake. Scanner is ok but can get jammed up with larger loads. Send 5-8 sheets through at a time and you should be fine.

    I'm sure I will enjoy this printer even more as I get used to it. Had a kind of rocky start as I found a lot of computer issues when setting it up. Computer tech guys fixed everything. Looking forward to using all the great things especially the photo resources. I'm so happy to have a quality printer. This is really a step up. Now I know why I didn't like my last 2 printers! It paid to shop around & ask questions. The knowledge level of Best Buy staff made the difference-not the price! I even came back & asked more questions! Always super helpful & knowledgeable.

    Bought this to replace my Officejet 6310 which was still in working order. Thought new printer might print pictures better than my 10 year old model. This printer prints, scans and faxes and has easy to operate software. Price was very reasonable for this printer (70 dollars off). Also you can sign up for instant ink program and pay for printing by page instead of buying ink cartridges. I signed up and got the first 3 months printing free. After that I pay 2.99 a month for printing and Hp automatically sends me ink when I run low.
