f late, all-in-one print­ers are pre­ferred at homes and small of­fices over the sin­gle-func­tion printer. The HP Ink Ad­van­tage 4515 is the top-of-the-line printer in the Ink Ad­van­tage se­ries priced at Rs 9,700. It looks good and doesn’t oc­cupy much space. The top is neat with the HP brand­ing on the side. There is a 2.65-inch coloured touch dis­play that comes handy while fol­low­ing in­struc­tions. There is also a light in­di­ca­tor for Wi-Fi con­nec­tiv­ity on the panel. The paper han­dling tray can hold up to 100 sheets at a time.

The printer of­fers three modes for print­ing – draft, nor­mal and best. The draft mode is just about okay to print documents for daily use. The nor­mal mode is good for documents for a re­port but I pre­ferred the best mode for im­age print­ing. Photo print­ing is this printer’s forte.

Un­like other print­ers that take a lot of time to print the first doc­u­ment, it man­aged to print the first doc­u­ment in 20 sec­onds. On the draft mode I got close to 20 black prints in a minute and 15 coloured prints. It also sup­ports wire­less print­ing. The scan­ner is also good. The big­gest ben­e­fit is the run­ning cost, as car­tridges are not as ex­pen­sive as they used to be in the past. Both the black and colour car­tridges cost less than Rs 1,000 and each car­tridge can print up to 500 pages.
