Good HP Envy 5055 Low Cost Printer, but NOT for PHOTO IMAGES
I have always bought more expensive Canon printers. Since my last two Canons broke down within a year, I decided to buy this HP Envy 5055 printer as a backup. It's so easy to use and fast. I leave my replacement Canon Pixma in the box. This printer works really well and is very easy to use. Scanning has always been difficult with the Canon, the Envy makes it so easy to use and the ink does not cost $ 50 ... It's also pretty and compact. The only disappointment was that when I was printing photos on photo paper, the quality was horrible.

HP offers excellent support for connecting this printer for wireless configuration
HP gives a very good support for connecting this printer for wireless set up. You will need to establish a Wi-Fi protected configuration for the printer to work. If you already have some, everything will be fine. I did not have a WPS before, but HP helped me do it. It was very easy and I'm happy to have done it. As for the printer, it works perfectly and prints clearly, I am very happy with the decision to buy this HP print product.

Wireless and Inexpensive - I like you can print out from your smartphone
I have not had a printer for many years because I do so little printing and the problem of ink replacement/cartridge disposal was really frustrating for me. But as it has been a real hindrance without help lately, I finally gave up and shopped for one HP printer. Wireless and Inexpensive - I love the fact that you can print out from your smartphone. They have this incredible ink replacement plan that starts with a very reasonable free plan, especially for people who do not print a lot. The set up is child's play, it is silent and prints perfectly. I have not printed anything in color, but I do not foresee any problem.

Scans of many pages can be frustrating
The installation was not too bad. I did not know that I needed a desktop software to be installed before trying to scan. Prompt printing and good interface.
The only problem I have had so far is scanning multiple pages. The interface gives a question if you want to scan another document, but if you are not careful, the time expires and you have to start scanning multiple pages again. You do not know why they have a timeout feature. I suppose they assume that many scans will only have one page and users will be frustrated to answer Y / N each time. Basically, I think multi-page scans are normal for a lot of users. Why they did not allow us to set up an option for choosing timeout?

HP Printer is fine, but online support is not so good
I recently purchased HP Envy 5055 printer and, while the printer is excellent, I had a terrible experience with their so-called help desk.
The Envy 5055 is a wireless printer and I had trouble printing on my laptop. During troubleshooting, I made an online contact with the HP Support Center and I soon connected to the phone with someone who I thought was a helpdesk representative. He asked to take control of my laptop remotely and I let him do it. In minutes, the laptop printed without problems via the wireless network. Super ... end of the problem ... or so I thought.
I did not need to print for about a week and, when I tried, I soon found the same problem. The laptop did not “talk” to the printer, I wanted to use their support again because I had success with the HP Help Center last time.
Here is what happened. At 4 pm, they said they would change me to another, more competent person. I was on the phone with Solution Mart LLC, a group supposedly dedicated to HP printer support. But they are actually not.
From 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, they were on my laptop and the verdict was that I had "corrupt files" and they had to download the drivers, that I watched them doing at least three times. And then he told me that I need new software so that it does not happen again and it will cost me to install it and finish it. The "PC Max Privacy Shield" was going to cost me $ 199.99 for two years.
At this point, I must admit that I was confused and a bit overwhelmed, but he had the printer printed and I broke for the contract. After another half hour of installation, they finished and they had my credit card and my driver's license.
As soon as I got out of the phone, I restarted my laptop and the problem was back. I called back and I was pissed off in front of them and I was transferred to 5 different technicians. Each of them with a less understandable accent. They went to work again.
I read the online reviews of Solutions Mart and they were not good. Many had written about the same problems I encountered and called them crooks. After a Google Earth search of their address showed a residential home on Long Island, I was convinced that I was fooled.
At 9 pm ... five hours after I started working with these bozos, he says it's my McAfee Firewall that prevented the laptop from printing. But he could not find a way to disable it. Of course, he can not because he does not sell it.
So here's what I thought happened.
** When I had HP support so that it worked properly, I was talking to Mart Solutions.
** I think they turned off McAfee while they were supposed to fix the printer problem. (I later found out how easy it was to do.) Knowing that the next time I had to print, I would have a problem and they would be there to "help".
** After 5 hours of nonsense and double talk, I took them out of the laptop, canceled the credit card and knew there was never a real problem. It's easy to use McAfee to allow the laptop to see the printer.
In summary, Solutions Mart LLC is not to help you and HP must be responsible for its actions. Think twice about any online help for any HP product.

Did not clarify HP Instant Ink member status
The HP Envy 5055 wireless printer works well, but I certainly did a workout to connect it to my Wi-Fi network. Note that I am a former computer trainer and I can certainly read and follow instructions. What I finally discovered, after so much frustration, is that HP designed the installation process to allow you to subscribe to HP instant ink. I did the setup about 10 times and every time I tried to refuse instant ink, the Wi-Fi network in my home became disconnected. I don’t use my HP Envy 5055 too much, so I finally subscribed to 1-15 pages a month, which was free. After putting my credit card information, I received the email message that they send me new cartridges in about 10 days. I did not need new cartridges so quickly, so I called the ink number and the representative told me I would NOT have to pay for the cartridges. He said they had to send me the new cartridges in order to detect the lack of ink. So, there must be an electronic chip in the new cartridges. If they had made it clearer on the site, I would have registered at the start. I thought the 1 to 15 free pages meant membership was free. I'm still a little skeptical about getting free ink for life if you only print 1 to 15 pages a month. I will come back and edit this later.

Easy installation, good impressions
I just installed HP Envy 5055 and I give it five provisional stars for ease of installation, quality of prints and the price of $ 69. I could review this with criticism if problems arise later. But the installation was incredibly easy and I was printing wirelessly from my iMac and iPhone in less than an hour. In fact, if I had not moved away while downloading the drivers, it could have been faster.
This installation was performed on a late 2009 iMac running High Sierra. Basically, just plug in the printer and turn it on. Remove the adhesive tape from the paper tray and a small piece of protective cardboard inside the printer. Then, go to the HP installation site at the hp website. (You can also do some of it directly from the printer if you want, but I think it's easier on the computer).
The installer will explain how to correctly install ink and paper. There are some useful videos. The only thing that made me stumble is when it's time to generate a print test for the scanner. The installation prompt indicated to click "ok" on the small touchscreen of the printer. But all I could see on the screen were guests for my country and my language. However, even if you have already responded to those on the website, answer them again on the touch screen of your printer, then you will get the message "ok".
Once you're done, you'll still have to tell your iMac - and I guess PC - that you have a new printer. It was easy.
On my iPhone, I got a little lost when I started to print emails. He said he would send me a pin to complete the process and never did. Yet when I checked my iPhone, he saw the printer and printed an email. Go understand. Maybe these instructions were for an old model.
Two other things: you will come to one of these privacy agreements at the end of the setup. Be sure to read them. I decided not to let them monitor my printer or send me updates. Plus, I did not sign up for HP's Instant Ink program. It did not seem like it would save me so much money, given the privacy and flexibility I would give up. The cheapest package costs $ 3 per month - $ 36 per year - and allows you to have 100 pages per month. My printing needs are light, but there are times when I can go over 100 times a month. And the replacement cartridges cost $ 27 on Amazon. It was nonsensical and allowed a backdoor in some of your most confidential documents. HP might not care, but a hacker could.
I hope it helps you!
