The HP Officejet Wireless 4630 is an all-in-one printer with good color resolution and mediocre print speed. Its versatility makes it a good printer for a small business or home office.
The Officejet 4630 is a four-in-one printer, which means it can print, copy, scan and fax. It can print 8.8 black-and-white pages per minute and 5.2 color pages per minute. Both of these numbers are significantly below the speeds of some competitors. These speeds are sufficient for home office use, but they may prove frustrating if you have long print jobs or multiple employees.
One of the strengths of this printer is its high color print resolution. It produces color prints at a resolution of 4,800 x 1,200 dots per inch, which is sufficient for creating bright, detailed photos, especially if you use photo paper.
The Officejet 4630 has an automatic document feeder, which is exceptional in a multifunction printer at this price point. The automatic document feeder sends multi-page documents into the scanner, so you don't have to manually feed in a long fax or memo.
One feature that this printer is missing is automatic duplexing. The best all-in-one printers automatically flip a page and print on both sides if you select double-sided printing. With the Officejet 4630, you have to manually turn the page over and feed it back into the printer if you want to print on both sides of a page.
You can send documents wirelessly to this printer in a variety of ways. This printer supports AirPrint, so you can easily send documents to it from any Apple device. Once you connect the printer to your Wi-Fi network, you can see the printer as an available printing device in the menu of a Windows computer. You can also download HP's free app to print from your Android phone or tablet.

This is one of the smallest all-in-one printers we reviewed, weighing less than 14 pounds and measuring just 13 inches deep. It's rated for a maximum use of 1,000 pages per month, so you'll want to make sure your office doesn't exceed that number of pages per month.
The HP Officejet 4630 is a good printer for a small office with minimal printing needs. But a lack of automatic duplexing means you'll go through a lot of paper, which can be tough on the environment and your wallet.
