The HP ENVY Pro 6475 is an okay all-in-one inkjet printer designed for home use. It's a variant of the HP ENVY Pro 6455, and it comes as a bundle that includes a two-year subscription to HP's Instant Ink delivery service. It has a scanner with an automatic document feeder, but it can't perform duplex scanning, so it can be pretty time-consuming if you need to scan double-sided documents. It has excellent color accuracy, though, and it prints good quality photos. Like its sibling, it has a terrible cartridge system that yields very few pages, leading to more frequent cartridge replacements and higher costs over time. It's also quite slow at printing black and color documents, and its input tray can only hold up to 100 sheets of paper, making it less ideal for big print jobs. Connectivity options are decent, and it's compatible with HP's Smart mobile app.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475 is okay for family use. It has good photo printing quality, excellent color accuracy, and a scanner that includes an automatic document feeder to process long multi-page documents. However, it has a very low page yield, so you have to replace the ink cartridges quite often, making it very expensive to print in the long run.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475 is bad for small or home offices. It has a very low page yield, slow printing speed, and a small input tray. The lack of an Ethernet port might be an issue for some offices, and even though it has an automatic document feeder, it can't perform duplex scanning.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475 is inadequate for student use. It has a low page yield, which means that you have to replace the cartridges frequently if you print a lot, making it very expensive to maintain over time. It doesn't support USB thumb drives, and the mobile app can't print Microsoft Office files. On the bright side, it has Wi-Fi connectivity and good scanner features.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475 is bad for printing black and white documents. Due to its low page yield, you have to replace the cartridges often, which ends up being significantly more expensive in the long run if you print a lot. Also, it has sub-par printing speed and a small input tray capacity.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475 is good for printing photos. It has excellent color accuracy, and it prints good quality, detailed photos. However, you have to replace the ink cartridges often if you print a lot, which gets costly over time. It prints photos reasonably fast, and it supports most photo paper sizes.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475 has an okay build and design. It's made entirely out of solid plastic and feels well-built overall. The power cord is removable and replaceable should it get damaged. Paper jams and ink cartridges are easy to access, but the printer needs to be on to change the cartridges. The input tray is on the smaller side and isn't removable, and the scanner's lid can't extend for scanning thicker items. Lastly, the cartridge bay's lid can slam down hard if you don't lower it gently.
The HP ENVY 6475 is relatively compact, almost identical in size to the HP ENVY Pro 6455.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475 doesn't have a display screen. Instead, there are touch-sensitive icons that light up to show the various functions, and it also indicates the number of copies during a print job. Also, there's a light above the output tray that changes color to show the printer's status.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475 has a terrible cartridge system. It yields a small number of black and color pages, making it more suitable for those who only print occasionally. However, there are higher-yield ink cartridges available if you want to increase the yield.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475 has good scanning features. It has a flatbed for scanning more fragile items, but the lid's hinges don't extend to accommodate thicker items like books. The automatic document feeder can't perform double-sided scans, so you have to manually flip over the pages to scan both sides of a document, which can be time-consuming.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475's cost-per-print is disappointing. While the ink cartridges are relatively cheap, you have to replace them often due to their low yield, making both black and color printing significantly more expensive over time if you print a lot. That said, this printer is sold as a bundle that includes a two-year subscription to HP's Instant Ink, a service that delivers ink to you when you run low. It might be a good deal if you can make full use of the service, as it keeps added expenses minimal during the first two years of ownership.
Even if you print only in black, most inkjet models continue using the color cartridge for servicing tasks, so you'll likely still need to replace it eventually.
The printing speed is sub-par. It takes a while to get the first page of a document out, and it doesn't really get much faster for subsequent pages. It takes even longer to print color pages, but photo printing speed is okay, similar to the HP ENVY Pro 6455. It only has one input tray with a 100-sheet capacity or 10 envelopes, and the feeder can hold up to 35 sheets of paper. The output tray can hold up to 25 sheets.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475 has excellent color accuracy; however, most colors are somewhat inaccurate, especially greens and blues. It should be fine if you want to add some colors to a document or chart, but it might not be good enough for professionals that require perfect accuracy.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475 has good photo printing quality. Printed photos are reasonably detailed, and colors look good overall. However, there's some banding in the grayscale.
These results are based on the actual physical photo, not the scanned image provided for reference above, which may not represent the printer's photo print quality.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475 supports paper sizes up to the standard letter size.
The HP ENVY Pro 6475 has decent connectivity options. It supports both wired and wireless connections, including direct printing through AirPrint and Mopria. Unfortunately, it lacks an Ethernet port and support for external storage devices like USB drives.
The HP Smart mobile app is decent. It lets you print, make copies, and scan using your smartphone's camera. You can also perform maintenance tasks like check ink levels, cleaning and aligning printheads, as well as order replacement ink and other supplies.
