Product Overview

HP Envy 5640 e-All-In-One in More Detail

The HP ENVY 5640 wireless all in one printer from HP is a great value, versatile machine, perfect for the home or small office. With its multi-function capabilities allowing you to print in regular or photorealistic formats, as well as copying and scanning and its easy connection to your wireless network or cloud server, it fits a lot of power into a compact design.

Mobile connection

The HP ENVY 5640 wireless all in one printer allows you to print documents and photos from any mobile device with minimum effort - you don’t even need a local wireless network or a router to get the most out of your tablet, smartphone, internet connected PC or Mac computer.

Simply connect the printer to your local network and your internet server, and use its in-built wireless connectivity hardware detection software to link up all your other devices. It’s very easy to set up a connection between your devices and the printer, whether you favour an iPhone, iPad, Kindle, Android mobile or something different.

Photorealistic printing

When using the right photo paper, the HP ENVY 5640 wireless all in one printer produces photographs of such high quality they could have come straight from a photo-processing lab. Coming with HP black and colour inks in the box, laser-quality text and high resolution images are possible with the touch of a button. You can send your photos to the machine straight from your phone and edit them there and then on the built-in touch screen. Separate feeds for photo paper and regular paper mean you no longer need to swap paper around for your different tasks.

Energy efficient

The HP ENVY 5640 wireless all in one printer doesn’t just save time and deliver great results, it saves you money, too - its automatic two-sided printing process will save you up to 50% of your paper usage. The supplied HP ink cartridges are easily recyclable, and the printer comes with energy-saving features, including automatic switch-off, if left idle for too long.

  • What is thermal inkjet? It's not in your glossary of terms.

    Thermal Inkjet printers are a low-cost choice for high speed printing. Thermal Inkjet printers use thermal energy, or electricity to increase the temperature of the ink before applying it to a medium.

    Happy with my purchase though not had it very long yet. Seems to be a good quality household printer, good quality printing and colour. Reasonably priced for the quality.

What is AirPrint?

Apple AirPrint allows full colour, top-quality printing from iOS devices such as iPhones and iPads directly from within many Apps available from the Apple App Store.

To take advantage of AirPrint, your compatible printer must be connected to the same wireless network as your iOS device or Mac computer.

AirPrint enables users to print wirelessly from within applications on Apple devices to AirPrint Compatible Printers connected to a wireless network. You can use your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to easily print via Airprint without the need to install drivers or configure the printer queue. Just tap 'print' and select your AirPrint compatible printer, and print!....It's that simple.

What You See is What You Print

If you can open it on your apple device, chances are you can print it with AirPrint and an AirPrint compatible printer. Airprint works with Safari, Mail, Photos, iWork, PDF's in iBooks and many third-party AirPrint compatible apps available from the app store.

Third-Party Apps

There are also a wide variety of third-party apps available to enable wireless printing through Apple devices, even to machines that are not natively AirPrint compatible printers. By sharing a printer installed on an Apple Mac or Windows Pc over a wireless network any printer may be able to take advantage of the AirPrint features. (An additional third-party app may be required to be installed on the local machine)

*For full AirPrint support, a printer firmware upgrade may be required which is available directly from the relevant manufacturer website.
