The Officejet 4500 All-in-One at a glance
Reliable and easy-to-use, the HP Officejet 4500 All-in-One is ideal for users who need to produce professional results at work or the home office. The all-in-one offers impressive print quality and productivity features at an affordable price. Plus, you get an energy-efficient all-in-one that conserves resources.
Professional colour at low cost
Bring professional-quality colour to your small business or home office. This all-in-one produces fast-drying, fade-resistant documents and offers a high-capacity black cartridge option.
Get professional quality at an affordable price
Make an impact for a low cost per page. HP’s ink-delivery system features black and tri-colour cartridges, as well as specially designed printheads. These deliver consistent high-quality prints, fast colour printing, exceptional value, and ease of use.
Print three times more black pages (up to 700) before replacing your ink cartridge, with high-capacity black HP Original 901XL ink cartridges.1
See optimum results with dual-drop-volume technology
HP’s dual-drop-volume technology, integrated in the HP Original 901 Ink Cartridges, ensures finely detailed images and graphics, up to 4800 x 1200-optimized dpi,2 without the lighter, photo dye-load inks used in six-ink printing. An improved halftoning process enables smooth gradations and outstanding colour accuracy.
In dual-drop-volume printing, the tri-colour ink cartridge contains specially formulated full-dye load colour inks that are fired onto the page in two different ink droplet volumes. These ink droplets can be as small as 1.3 picoliters (pl) and as large as 5 pl. (About 3.8 billion of these 1.3 pl droplets would fit in a teaspoon.) The all-in-one can fire any combination of small or large ink droplets at a given print position and determines the combination of ink droplets to provide the optimum print quality and speed.
Produce fast-drying documents using papers with the ColourLok logo
HP Officejet Inks for business are specifically developed for use with HP printheads. A new black pigmented ink enables fast black printing with improved handling ability. New dye-based colour inks enable quick throughput and provide extended fade resistance over previous office printer platforms. Unique ink formulations help extend the life of the printheads and enhance reliability.
Archive documents and photos with confidence
Documents degrade over time. As a document ages and is exposed to elements like light, heat, moisture, pollution, and acids in the paper, the chemicals in the ink break down. HP has designed its HP Officejet Inks so that all your archived documents will retain black text and colour quality for decades without fading.3
Simple installation, networking and more
Wired (Fast Ethernet) networking
Designed to be easy to share, the HP Officejet 4500 All-in-One offers embedded wired networking capabilities that allow you to connect the all-in-one directly to a 10/100 Base-T Fast Ethernet network. With the all-in-one turned on, simply connect an Ethernet cable from the all-in-one’s RJ-45 port to the network hub, switch, or router, and then run the installation software on each of the computers on the network.
