The Basics

The first thing I noticed about the C4599 was how little room it took up on my desk – even inside the box.  When I get compact printers in for review, they usually come in huge boxes with 2 lbs of Styrofoam.






The C4599 dimensions are approx. 17” x 11” x 6” and it weighs in at 11.16 lbs; small and light for an all-in-one machine.

I like the look of the C4599 as well.  It is mostly black with silver accents on the scanner lid and the paper tray door.  

The scanner flatbed is approx. 12” x 9”, I rounded up a bit.  It has labels for different media sizes around the outside of the glass.







Below the scanner, there is another panel that pulls down; access paper and the inside of the machine here.

There isn’t an actual removable paper tray on the C4599 because of its compact size.  To load paper, pull out the tray extender and then slide the paper directly in to the printer.  Adjust the paper clasp on the left to fit the media size.







If you need to load new ink cartridges, there is a panel that opens above the paper area.

The control panel is located on the left side of the machine.  The power button, WiFi button, and printer controls are all found here, as well as the 1.5” LCD.













Below the control panel is the built-in memory card reader.  It supports Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo, Secure Digital card, MultiMediaCard, Secure Digital High Capacity card and xD-Picture card.

On the back of the machine, there is a USB port and the AC jack.

So far, I’m loving the size and style of the limited edition HP Photosmart C4599 All-in-One printer.  Read our full review to get the scoop on its performance.
