The assembly and materials are of high quality, the design remains elegant and the layout compact. The paper tray holds 125 A4 sheets, which is the right amount for this type of printer.

There is also a special tray for 10 x 15 photo paper, which is quite practical for not having to fiddle with the guides of the main tray.

The HP ENVY 5642 achieves decent throughput at 16 pages per minute (ppm) in black and white and 12 ppm in color.

Black drying time is always an issue with duplex printing, where throughput drops to 8 ppm. The print quality seems to improve slightly, with respect for detailed images and color transitions.

The scan can be performed on a memory card, a computer or an email. The quality of the scanned files is quite good for a material of this range.

Scanning an A4 document and a 10 x 15 photo is fast (16 and 20 seconds respectively at 300 dpi).

The copy function is very often a source of output quality degradation. Here the HP ENVY 5642 does justice to the original of the document, with a certain respect for faded and legible images in both color and black and white. A very good point.

With 19 seconds to perform a black and white copy and 26 seconds for color, the copy mode speeds are correct. The connection is provided by a USB connection and Wi-Fi.

Tradition at HP, ergonomics and ease of use come together. The 6.75 cm touchscreen fulfills its role, the menus are clear and you quickly get to the point.

An SD card reader makes it easy to print photos, even if one dreams of a slightly larger screen for better viewing. The USB port for external devices (USB key for example) is unfortunately still not there.

The touchscreen menu has a simple structure and responds quickly to the data entered. The HP ENVY 5642 is equipped with HP’s signature ePrint function, so it can also work wirelessly with associated ultra-mobile devices.
