The HP DeskJet Plus 4155 is an okay all-in-one printer, and despite its compact size, it has both a sheetfed and flatbed scanner. However, its overall performance doesn't stand out much and it's what you would expect from an inexpensive printer. It has a really low color and black page yield, so you need to regularly replace the cartridges if you print a lot. Although the cartridges are cheap, the costs could add up quickly over time. It doesn't print double-sided pages and it prints slowly whether you're printing in black and white or in color. Even though it has a sheetfed scanner, it doesn't support duplex scanning. That said, it has excellent color accuracy, okay photo printing quality, and the plastic body feels solid.
The HP DeskJet Plus 4155 is alright for home use. It has a sheetfed and flatbed scanner, but it doesn't support duplex printing or scanning. It has excellent color accuracy and its photo printing quality is okay. Unfortunately, its cartridges have a really low page yield, so you need to replace them often.

The HP DeskJet Plus 4155 is poor for students. It has a low page yield, so even though the replacement cartridges are cheap, printing still isn't cost-effective over time. It has a sheetfed and flatbed scanner, and you can connect to this printer via Wi-Fi. Sadly, it doesn't have any external device support, so you can't print directly from a USB drive or SD card.
Bad for black and white printing. The HP DeskJet Plus 4155 prints black and white pages very slowly, and its low page yield means you have to replace the cartridge often if you print a lot of pages. It has a sheetfed scanner, which doesn't support duplex scanning. If you want to print double-sided pages, you have to flip each sheet of paper manually.
The HP DeskJet Plus 4155 is decent for printing photos. It has excellent color accuracy and its photo printing quality is okay, but the overall tone looks flat. It has a low color page yield, so if you print a lot of photos, you need to change the cartridges often.
The HP DeskJet Plus 4155 has poor build quality. Even though the plastic body feels solid, its overall design isn't good. It doesn't have a paper tray, but instead has a rear feeder that holds up to 60 pages, which feels flimsy to pull out and put back in. You need to make sure the output tray is pulled out all the way when printing, otherwise your paper may get crumbled. You can only access paper jams from the print head compartment, which can be somewhat tight for larger hands. Also, the scan lid doesn't raise high enough to place thicker items like books. Lastly, the power cable is removable in case it gets damaged and you have to replace it.
The HP DeskJet 4155 isn't as compact as the HP DeskJet 3755, but it's still a fairly small printer and won't take up too much space.
This printer has a bad display screen. It's an LCD with a few icons and symbols on it, but it's easy to see whether you're standing or sitting down in front of it. There are seven physical buttons on the printer to control different actions, such as copy, resume, and cancel, to name a few.
Update 02/08/21: We had incorrectly listed the color cartridge as the HP 65 Tri-Color, when it really uses the HP 67 Tri-Color. We updated the review to correct this error.
Terrible cartridge system. The HP DeskJet Plus 4155 uses the same HP 67 cartridges as the HP ENVY 6055 and has a fairly similar page yield. Whether you're printing in black and white or in color, the cartridges don't last long, and you have to replace them quickly. There are high-yield cartridges you can buy if you want a higher page yield.
The printer accepts third-party cartridges, but using them may void the warranty.
The HP 4155 has good scanning features. It has a sheetfed scanner, and unlike the HP DeskJet 3755, it also has a flatbed scanner. Sadly, the sheetfed scanner doesn't support duplex scanning, so you need to flip double-sided documents manually. The automatic document feeder holds up to 35 pages.
The HP DeskJet Plus 4155 all-in-one printer has a disappointing cost-per-print. The cartridges are cheap, but because of the printer's low page yield, you'll often need to buy new cartridges if you print regularly. If you sign up for HP's Instant Ink subscription, you receive new cartridges when you run out of ink.
Keep in mind that even if you print only in black, most inkjet printers continue using the color cartridges for servicing tasks, so you'll likely still need to replace them eventually.
The HP DeskJet 4155 has a very slow printing speed. Whether you're printing color or black and white documents, it takes a while to print each page. It prints photos faster than the HP DeskJet 3755, but it's still not fast. Unfortunately, it doesn't print double-sided pages. The output tray holds up to 25 pages.
The HP DeskJet 4155 has excellent color accuracy, and it's better than the HP ENVY Photo 6255. It's good enough for printing presentations or projects, but may not be good for work that requires perfect color accuracy.

The HP DeskJet Plus 4155 we tested is available in the United States and Canada and it's only available in white. It's known as the HP DeskJet Plus 4158 at Costco. There's a variant called the HP DeskJet Plus 4152 which seems to be identical to the 4155, but it doesn't offer the HP Instant Ink Light Printing Plan that lets you print up to 15 pages per month for free. Also, there are two other variants, the HP DeskJet Plus 4122 and the HP DeskJet Plus 4120, which are available in North America and other regions.
