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.

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.
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.

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.

I was having problems with my old printer and thought it may have something to do with the refilled ink cartridges I was buying so I went to purchase brand new ones. It was going to cost me $100 just for the ink cartridges and that may not have even been the problem. I decided to just get a brand new printer with ink cartridges that were affordable. I came across this and thought I would try it. I use this at home to print whatever on regular paper. I do not print out photos, but I think this would do just fine. The installation was extremely easy and I am not really that tech savvy. I could not get it to sync with my laptop on-line, I had to use the CD, but that was fine. I went to the HP website and I picked my printer, but when I clicked on the “begin” button on the site, but nothing happened. Not sure, but I got it to work. The color and black ink work great with no smearing or anything like that. I have used the scan function a couple of times and it is super easy to use too. It holds a good amount of paper for me. We really do not print a lot here so even the starter ink that it came with is still in there. The replacement ink cartridges are reasonably priced as well as this printer. I love the touch screen. It registers my light touch just fine. I cannot say enough good things about this printer. It really has worked for what I need it for.
Works pretty well, needs ink constantly

I’ve owned my HP 5660 for a year now & have mixed feelings.
Canon printers are better but HP is cheaper……..

So like many, I have a printer for mostly photo printing of the family. My last two printers were canon pixma photo printers. And I loved the prints, 8x10s are beauiful, but the cost of ink was ridiculous. And since I didn’t print often that ink would dry up. So I’d have to do those deep cleanings of the print head, or it would print with missing colors or bars in the photo. This ate the ink. I tried off brand ink, but after breaking two printers, I realized that wasn’t a good option either. OK so I felt that summary was needed to understand why I would ditch the quality of canon for HP if all I care about was photos.

So far, this has been the best at-home printer I’ve ever owned! The set-up was a breeze, and while there was one small hiccup with a step in the connectivity, the HP chat support was so easy to connect to and helped me get the problem resolved quickly. My favorite features are the HP printer app which allows me to print from any of my wireless devices, the seamless 2-sided printing option, and the HP Instant Ink program which saves so much time and money. Thrilled with my purchase!
Works great! So happy to have this one!

I bought this to replace my Cannon pixma printer. I can’t believe how the technology has improved over the past few years! It felt like Christmas to me once I got this all plugged in! The design is attractive; bigger than I thought it would be, but still looks nice. The touchscreen is really neat, and I LOVE the app you can download on your phone/tablet/etc. to print wirelessly from anywhere! The print quality is great, and it prints quickly and relatively quietly. The scan function also works fast and well. I’m excited to use the double sided printing feature, but haven’t needed to yet. I was also so excited to see how cheap the ink cartridges are, and there’s a monthly service you can subscribe to as well that provides you ink based on your usage plan. I am so glad my old printer broke so I could get this one!
