Build & Design Quality
Overall, the ENVY Pro 6455 has a good build quality with a plastic body that feels quite solid. The cartridges are easy to remove because all you need to do is remove them, but the printer should be on when you replace cartridges.
The input tray has a slider you can adjust for photos instead of a dedicated tray, so you only need to remove large sizes of paper if you want to print photos. But unfortunately, the slider can’t be expanded to legal-sized paper.

The printer has audible feedback and an LED light to notify you of its status, such as when something is finished printing or something has gone wrong.

These LEDs indicate how many pages you need to copy during a copy job and there are also lights that can change color based on the status of your printer, such as if there are errors or when they are connected to Wi-Fi.
This HP ENVY 6455 has a bad cartridge system and is similar to the HP ENVY 6055. This cartridge system does not print many pages with either black or tri-color ink cartridges, so you will need to replace them often if you print regularly. They will continue to print multiple blank pages even after the ink runs out.
These types of HP printers can accept third-party cartridges, but using them may invalidate your product warranty.
It has both flatbed and sheetfed scanners, these are good scanning options, but the ENVY Pro 6455 does not support duplex scanning, so you will need to manually flip pages if you need to scan two-sided documents. But unfortunately, the scanner lid is not too high for larger items like books.

Cost Per Print
This ENVY Pro 6455 has a disappointing cost per print. Because of their very low page yield, you will have to buy new cartridges regularly if they print a lot, and while they are cheap, costs can add up quickly over time.
You can sign up for a subscription to HP’s Instant Ink, which automatically sends you a new cartridge when it runs out. If you want a printer that can afford a two-year subscription to HP Instant Ink and has a lower cost per print, see HP ENVY 6075.
Even if you print in black only, most inkjets still use color cartridges for service tasks, so you may still have to replace them eventually.
