HP Envy 5660 Wireless All-in-One Photo Printer with Mobile Printing, Instant Ink ready (F8B04A).
Easily connect this e-all-in-one to your local network and the Internet, wirelessly right from your PC
Print high-quality documents and photos in black-and-white and color – all for the same low price, Walk up, edit, and print photos right from the 2.65-inch (6.75 cm) touchscreen
Fairly easy & seamless setup
Wireless – it can literally sit anywhere and I don’t have to worry about having a long enough USB cable.
Printer had no trouble connecting to my WiFi.
The touch screen makes it really easy to enter the WiFi password. (I have another printer that isn’t touch, & it’s very difficult.)
Sleek design with one button (power), and everything else takes place through the touch screen LCD.
Prints VERY fast – fastest of any inkjet I have had over the last 10 years, and I’ve had a bunch.
Scanning gives you the option of saving it as a PDF to any of the computers you have attached,
Once completed, a window pops up with the scan PDF highlighted in the documents directory, so you don’t need to look for it.
You can also scan directly to an e-mail and it will send directly from the printer – very cool.
Love using the HP remote windows app to control the product remotely for scanning, etc.
Love that I can crop my scan through the remote app before e-mailing or saving.
Cons (or slightly negative elements):
The scanner lid only allows for thin documents/books before the lid has trouble closing.
The documentation is a bit strange – there could be more info on the single sheet of instructions.
During the setup, when you get the message to visit the URL to set up the HP connected account, the message disappears after a minute or two. I had no idea what the URL was until I rediscovered it on the single sheet that has no written instructions.
The user had better have nimble, thin fingers, because the keypad for entering things like e-mail addresses, etc., on the touchscreen LCD has pretty small letters, and it is easy to hit the wrong letter.
Could definitely do a better job here letting people know which cartridge goes where. Admittedly there are only two, but bigger graphics inside the printer will probably eliminate unnecessary communications to the technical support resources.
Once HP Connect is set up, I discovered that the online services includes a print history, where everything you have printed for the last 30 days is kept. I assume this is online somewhere. There very well could have been something about that in the terms and conditions, etc., somewhere – I do not recall – but that seems more invasive than helpful in the real world.
Pleased With This HP ENVY 5660 All -In-One Inkjet Printer

By Debbie A. Jett
I read LOTS of reviews of other printers before purchasing this one. I have an HP computer and wanted an HP printer to avoid any compatibility issues. I’ve owned 2 HP printers previously and wore both of them out. During my search, the most frequent complaint I found was that most of the newer printers take separate color ink cartridges and will not print, even in black and white, unless all the cartridges are full, forcing users to have to change cartridges which are not empty. In my opinion, this is a rotten way for printer manufacturers to treat their customers, as the cost of ink is already ridiculous and having to remove cartridges that are not empty is pretty outrageous. Who wants a bunch of half-filled cartridges lying around? Also, the initial cash outlay for separate color cartridges is much higher than for the tri-color ones. Evidently, HP listened to those complaints, as THIS PRINTER TAKES ONE black cartridge and ONE tri-color cartridge, (#62) which runs about $32 for a combo pack. The combo pack also includes free 5 X7 photo papers and envelopes, a feature that I use a lot. If it runs out of one or more colors, it will still print.
*This Printer is Compatible with Windows 10

Printer arrived July 21, 2017. Let’s get to business…I’m running full (Windows 10) on my (ASUS) laptop. Uninstalled previous HP printer properties or whatever previous printer properties you were using …uninstall them. Then reinstall new Printer properties from Disk provided or you can (google) the downloadable applications for this printer…just google (HP Envy 5660/5640 desktop set-up application) or go to the HP website.
Love the printer. Love the HP Instant Ink replacement service that comes with it.

This is a really nice printer. The printing speed is fast for a inkjet printer and the colors are nice and bright, so it prints really nice photos. I use a lot of printer ink because I print out a lot of knitting and sewing patterns and I had never heard of the HP Instant Ink replacement service. I am really excited about that.
Not great or even good

Not great or even good, when printing more than 3 pages at a time.
What a wonderful Wifi, Duplex printer that’s FAST user FRIENDLY and works with my IPad too.
on November 4, 2016
SOOOOO much user friendly and light years FASTER than my Canon duplex printer. Color items comes out much nicer and more true as well. I bought this one to replace a Canon for my Mom and was so impressed, I bought one for myself and one for my Husband. Has everything I need and nothing I don’t. Scanner is a breeze to use. So uncomplicated. Love the wifi. Only thing I have to get used to us where to place the originals if copying or scanning. Instead of putting it in the upper left corner……….it goes in the lower right. Other than that, for the price…this is a really, really great printer…… I even got my IPad Pro and IPad Air 2 to print. Just have to settings and log onto your wifi “Network” login and you’re ready to print from your IPad. When you’re done, go back to settings…. wifi and log back into your home usual connection.
Good enough for my use

I ordered this printer to replace my HP C5280, which I loved, but it quit on me after 9+ years of service. I received this today and immediately set it up for wireless printing. HP made me download 2 apps on my phone. I have had no connectivity issues so far. I will update if I have any.
Would not accept ink cartridges

,The product arrived and I followed the instructions to start the printer, When I came to the section to insert the ink cartridges, the message came that the cartridges were not inserted properly. I repeated the act with the same result. I bought more cartridges and the same result. When I queried the website for advice I was refereed to a tech firm which did not solve the problem but “cleaned” up the computer for a price. I was assured by them the problem was in the computer and not in the printer. I repacked the printer and am returning it to you. After $99 for an unnecessary tech consultation and a non functioning AIO printer, I have bought an Epson at a local store and it works wonderfully.
Won’t usually do negative reviews…..but this printer is a buyer beware in my book…..

I only wish I could put zero stars. I’m so irritated at this point. This thing hasn’t worked correctly from day one. It’s always printed lines through everything when it would actually put any black ink on a piece of paper. Today it won’t even recognize the new HP ink cartridges I bought for it as a last resort to see if I could get it to work properly. Nope, Notta, Ain’t gonna happen!!!!!! I finally had to print a document in blue so I could at least get it signed and taken care of. I’m going to see if I can find a place that takes electronics and likes to fiddle with them and resell them because I’m done!!!! Oh and before anyone thinks of the obvious questions. Yes…..I’ve done the software, firmware and network updates. I’ve ran through every possible diagnostic scenario as far as getting the printer head to work right. I’ve tried everything….all to no avail! It’s probably just a lemon. Oh well….. Next……

Super nice printer and I gave it 4 stars because of a few minor things that would make a difference in my mind. If I could, I’d give it a 4.5 star review.
So far so good…..

I have had “fair to OK” luck with previous HP printers, but HP seems to have ditched it’s line of Photo Smart printers and focused on making a smaller line of printers better. I don’t know how long it will last, but so far I am very happy with the responsive color screen, the fast / quiet printing, and the double sided printing works like butter. I goes to sleep when not using it…a big plus, and wakes itself up when needed. The scanner is quick, quiet, and not blinding bright like the old ones. I may update this review in the future if needed, but as I said…so far so good. I am more than happy with this printer (in fact now that I think about it, it is probably the first printer I’ve have that it a joy to use. jan. 2015
