HP ENVY 6055 Wireless All-in-One Printer review

The HP ENVY 6055 is fine for home use, but not very versatile. This all-in-one printer has excellent color accuracy and good print quality for photos. However, your page yield is extremely low whether you print in color or only in black. For this reason, printing is not profitable over time as you have to regularly buy new cartridges. In addition, it only has a flatbed scanner and does not support double-sided scanning, which can be problematic for offices that need to process long double-sided documents. That said, it has a decent build quality and the compact size shouldn’t take up much space. It has been replaced by the HP ENVY 6055e, which is nearly identical but comes with a free six-month subscription to HP Instant Ink.

Our Verdict

The HP ENVY 6055 is fine for family use. It has good photo print quality and excellent color accuracy, ideal for printing family photos. Unfortunately, it has a very low page yield, so you may need to replace the cartridges regularly if you print frequently. It has a high-resolution flatbed scanner, but it doesn’t have a sheet-fed scanner.

PROS

  • Very good photographic print quality.
  • Excellent color accuracy.

CONS

  • Really low page yield.
  • It does not have a sheet scanner.
  • High cost per print.

Test Results

Build & Design Quality

This HP ENVY 6055 has a reasonable build quality. The plastic housing feels solid and the power cord can be removed in case you need to replace it. The inbox has a slider to adjust the width of the photos; however, it is not suitable for legal size paper and there is no dedicated photo tray. The cartridges are easy to remove and you just have to unhook them. Paper jams can be reached by lifting the flatbed scanner, which can fall quickly and hard if you do not lower it slowly. Unfortunately, the scanner lid cannot be lifted high enough for thicker items such as books. Finally, the printer provides audio feedback when a job is completed, which is a nice feature.

Instead, there are five touch buttons that light up in different colors and allow you to perform different tasks, such as starting a copy session or canceling a print job.

The printer has multiple indicator lights to notify you if there is a printing error or paper and ink out, and there is a Wi-Fi status light.
