HP Envy 110 multifunction inkjet printer
The HP Envy 110 is stylish and competent, but it's also pricy
- Excellent photo output
- Cloud-ready with ePrint, AirPrint, and HP Web apps
- Sleek, attractive design
- Very expensive ink
If a good-looking product is paramount to you, then the elegant Envy 110 MFP may be just what you seek--but this model is expensive.
Price$ 249.95 (AUD)
HP was in the vanguard of cloud printing. Web-based printing apps have been available for select HP models for over a year, and the company's ePrint remote-printing feature launched in early 2011. The Envy 110 e-All-in-One offers all of that functionality, as well as support for Apple's AirPrint.
In our tests the Envy 110 e-All-in-One printed very nicely. Images we printed on HP Advanced Photo Paper looked rich. Text was dark and sharp at both the default and best settings. We did notice some slight banding in images printed on plain paper (Hammermill Laserprint); this effect became more pronounced in draft mode, especially with monochrome graphics. Scans and copies were good overall.
The nice-looking output arrives somewhat slowly, however. Our text pages with scattered monochrome graphics printed at only 5.2 pages per minute on the PC and 5 ppm on the Mac — poky compared with the speeds of other inkjet MFPs we've tested. Printing a snapshot-size photo at default settings on plain paper took 22 seconds, or about 2.7 ppm; but it slowed to 56 seconds, or a little better than 1 ppm, when we switched to HP Advanced Photo Paper and better settings. On the Mac, a full-page, high-resolution color photo took a slower-than-average 3 minutes and change to print.
The Envy 110 e-All-in-One's major unattractive feature is its ink costs. Although anyone who buys an MFP for looks and wow-factor probably won't care, the costs for this model are exorbitant if you use the standard supplies. The HP 60 black cartridge lasts 200 pages and costs $15, or 7.5 cents per page, while the HP 60 unified color cartridge last 160 pages and costs $20, or 12.5 cents per page. That's a whopping 20 cents for a four-color page. The 600-page, $35 black and 430-page, $41 unified color XL 60 cartridges reduce that to 5.8 cents per black page and 15.3 cents per four-color page.
HP intends the Envy 110 e-All-in-One to sit in a living room or private office as an objet d'art, seeing only occasional use and producing nice output upon request. For that purpose, it's an excellent product. If you have a budget in mind, however, this MFP will break it quickly. The Canon Pixma MG6220 is just as cool-looking but not nearly as expensive to operate.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
