HP ENVY 5540 Driver & Wireless Setup - Manual & Software

- May 20, 2019

HP ENVY 5540 Driver & Wireless Setup - Manual & Software  - Plainly implied for home use, the HP Envy 5540 All-in-One Printer ($129.99) doesn't offer the workplace arranged highlights you'd need in even in a home office multifunction printer (MFP), like fax ability or a programmed report feeder (ADF) for filtering. In any case, it goes past the nuts and bolts for an inkjet MFP for the home, with versatile printing, Web-associated highlights, and availability choices that incorporate Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct. In our tests, it was somewhat moderate for printing from business applications, however it was quick for photographs, making it appropriate for home use. 

Obviously, for all intents and purposes any inkjet, including the 5540 can be utilized in a home office if your print needs are adequately light. In any case, you can get printers at a similar cost or less that are vastly improved fit to the assignment. The Brother MFC-J470DW, for instance, is our Editors' Choice for decently estimated inkjet MFPs and incorporates faxing and an ADF. The one unarguable favorable position the 5540 has over the Brother model is that it's somewhat quicker for printing photographs. 


Essential MFP highlights for the HP ENVY 5540 are constrained to printing, duplicating, and checking. Moreover, the 2.2-inch front-board contact screen LCD offers a menu that gives you a chance to print a grouping of formats put away in the printer, including diagram paper and music paper. 

The association alternatives for the HP ENVY 5540 are USB, Wi-Fi, and Wi-Fi Direct. On the off chance that you associate by means of Wi-Fi to a system that is associated with the Internet, you can utilize the touch-screen menus for HP's print applications, which let you print from a combination of Web locales. Among the most prominent, as per HP, are the decisions for printing crossword astounds, Disney shading book pages, and a seven-day menu organizer. 

Interfacing with a system likewise gives you a chance to print through the cloud (accepting the system is associated with the Internet), just as print to and check from a cell phone through a passage on the system, utilizing an iOS, Android, Windows, or Blackberry cell phone or tablet. 

In the event that you utilize a USB association with a solitary PC rather, you'll lose the capacity to print however the cloud and the capacity to utilize HP's print applications, yet you can at present exploit the printer's Wi-Fi Direct to interface legitimately to the printer from a cell phone to print and output. 

Paper taking care of for the HP ENVY 5540 is a blended pack, however an authoritative a stage up from the more affordable HP Envy 4520 e-All-in-One that I as of late explored. Both incorporate a duplexer, however the HP ENVY 5540's 125-sheet input plate offers a lift in limit from the HP 4520's 100 sheets. Far and away superior is the 15-sheet, 4-by-6-inch photograph plate that the more affordable model needs, so you can switch between imprinting on plain paper and photograph paper without swapping out paper in the fundamental plate each time. Paper dealing with for examining—with the two models—is restricted to physically putting pages each one in turn on the letter-estimate flatbed. 

At 6.1 by 17.9 by 16.1 inches (HWD) and just 15 pounds, the HP ENVY 5540 is little and light enough for one individual to effortlessly move into spot. For my tests, I associated it by USB link to a framework running Windows Vista. 

Physical setup is standard. Introducing the drivers and other programming is somewhat strange for printers when all is said in done, however it's the methodology HP hopes to use for inkjets for a long time to come. The Start Here booklet instructs you to go to the HP site where "HP will manage you through...your printer setup." Unfortunately, the page is a general establishment page, as opposed to one that is explicit for the printer, and when I took a stab at scanning for the HP Envy 5540, the site didn't react. HP says this was simply because the printer was not yet accessible when I tried it, and the site ought to be prepared for it when you read this. To really introduce the product, I took the backup course of action of introducing from the circulation plate that accompanies the printer.

Speed and Quality 
The HP ENVY 5540's speed is languid, best case scenario for business applications, however quick for photographs. On our business applications suite (planned with QualityLogic's equipment and programming), it oversaw just 2.1 pages every moment (ppm). That makes it quicker than the HP 4520, which turned in a surprisingly moderate 1.4ppm, yet not by any means half as quick as the Brother MFC-J470DW, which I planned at 4.9ppm. 

Then again, photograph speed is significantly quicker in respect to the challenge, with the HP ENVY 5540 averaging 53 seconds for a 4-by-6-inch print in my tests. That makes it a touch quicker than the Brother MFC-J470DW and the HP 4520, which both came in at around 60 seconds, and much quicker than some different contenders, including the Epson Expression Home XP-420 Small-in-One, which arrived at the midpoint of 2 minutes 13 seconds for each photograph. 

Yield quality is run of the mill for an inkjet MFP in all cases. Content quality falls amidst the range that incorporates by far most of inkjets, making it adequate for most home needs, as long as you don't require abnormally little textual styles. 

Illustrations yield is at the base of an a lot more tightly go that likewise incorporates most by far of inkjet MFPs. It's effectively reasonable for most easygoing home use, and even adequate so the vast majority would likewise think of it as worthy for business PowerPoint introductions and so forth. Likewise with most inkjets today, photographs are a counterpart for run of the mill drugstore prints. 

Like the HP Envy 4520, the HP ENVY 5540 can exploit HP's Instant Ink program. At $2.99 to $9.99 every month, the Instant Ink plans work similar to a phone plan, in that they let you print some number of pages every month for a fixed expense, charge additional for extra pages, and point of confinement the quantity of pages you can move over on the off chance that you don't utilize them. 

You can avoid the Instant Ink plan and purchase cartridges as required. Be that as it may, HP guarantees that being on the arrangement can slice your running expense down the middle. The catch is that the case expect you print precisely the quantity of pages you pay for. On the off chance that you agree to accept, say, the $2.99 every month plan and print the 50 pages you're qualified for, you'll burn through 6 pennies for each page. Print three pages, and you'll burn through $1.00 per page. Print 51 pages, and you'll burn through 6 pennies each for the initial 50, or more another $1 for the fifty-first. 

You have the alternative to go off and back on the Instant Ink plan, just as switch between plans, whenever. Be that as it may, in the event that you neglect to quit when you don't hope to print much in case you're getting away, for instance despite everything you'll be paying the full charge. 

Muddling matters further is the way that pages under the Instant Ink program are characterized uniquely in contrast to the pages organizations have as a main priority when they quote cartridge yields. Whenever HP and most different organizations today state that a given cartridge will print 100 pages, for instance, it's putting together the yield with respect to a particular picture characterized in an ISO/IEC detail. At the point when HP says that you can print 50 pages for every month on the Instant Ink program, nonetheless, it's discussing an exacting 50 pages. 

Regardless of whether you print a solitary period on the page or spread it edge to edge in ink, it considers a page (with two-sided pages considering two). This makes it difficult to contrast running expenses and the Instant Ink intend to running expenses without it, significantly less make a correlation with the running expenses for contending printers. All the better you can do is remember the distinctions and consider the expense cautiously before you sign on. 

One of the selling focuses for the Instant Ink plan is that the printer screens ink levels and naturally arranges more ink before you run out, so the new cartridges touch base before you need them. Yet, in the event that your printing needs change with the goal that you print nothing for a large portion of a month, and pack a great deal of pages into only a couple of days, you can without much of a stretch run the cartridges dry in one hard core print day, and still end up out of ink. 

A related issue is that HP makes a decent attempt to get you agree to accept Instant Ink both when you introduce the printer and each time you change ink cartridges, with updates on the printer's front board LCD. On the off chance that you have no enthusiasm for agreeing to accept one of the Instant Ink designs, the updates can transform into an unequivocally minor, however rehashing, inconvenience.
