HP DeskJet 3070A review


HP's DeskJet 3070A multifunction printer doesn't make a great initial impression. Its grey plastic breadbin shape and greyscale LCD display are reminiscent of designs from the 1990s.

The DeskJet 3070A isn’t a high-volume printer, but its combination of speed, quality and price makes it a good choice for home users who need an efficient printer for daily use, with the additional option of good photo prints when required.

HP Deskjet 3070A Printer


This printer convinced the jury with its coherent design and the generous, smooth surfaces. The easily accessible control panel is form-fitted between housing and cover.

Review: HP Deskjet 3070A


A good entry-level printer/scanner combo, not ideal for photo printing.

HP Deskjet 3070A


The HP Deskjet 3070A is an attractive device that offers ease of use along with excellent colour reproduction.

Excellent colour rendition, Wireless scanning and printing worked very well, Feature menu is simple and accessible

Device cover is inflexible, Inkjet cartridges can become expensive depending on printing load

Worst purchasing decision I have ever made


It's okay as a scanner, but from day one I have had constant problems with paper jams. It chews up, rips, and jams about 8 out of every 10 pages it tries to feed. When it does manage to print a page, it ends up on the floor because there is not...

Scanning is fine

Just does not work.

HP Deskjet 3070A


Easy to set up, great value for money, works with tnon hp cartridges, speedy, easy. Features are good. Printing been fine for my use.

Not found any other than printing from my note 2 phone and other wireless printing. Think that's my issue rather than the printer though.

HP Deskjet 3070A


When this does print, the quality is good, however these times are few.

This printer does not reliably connect to a wireless network and has caused me hours of headaches. Stay well away from this printer, both my iPad and laptop cannot see it on the network.
