Great home printer

 

My mom rec'vd this printer with the computer she bought. Since she already had a printer she gave it to me. I love the small design, it fits great on my home desk. I don't really do a ton of printing but for the amount I do it's great. A little slow...

It was free, great for home (non-business) printing, quiet, design

Slow printing on photo quality, a small amount of photo prints are grainy

Printer packed with all the features that a home user needs

 

I bought this printer a week ago and so far IT IS GREAT. The print quality of black and colour text is excelent, and the photographs are EXCELENT even on plain paper ( I normaly use photo paper but at this moment I just haven't any). This printer prints a

The ink cartridges are very small and contain only about 10 ml. (black) and 8 ml. (colour) ink. Also with the package a USB cable isn't included so you will have to buy one (but don't worry about this becouse almost all new printers are without a USB cabl

Crazy photos

 

Nice prints with and without photo cartridge

I purchased the Deskjet 3845 because it had the option of 6 colour printing with the optional HP 58 cartridge. While it certainly produces excellent photos, unless you are prepared to buy the vastly overpriced HP 4 x 6 paper with tab, it cuts the feet off

Consumer review by:

A very good basic printer

 

Fairly small, unintrusive footprint. Easy-connect USB port. Very simple to use. Very good text printing, even when printing very small fonts. Paper trays fold out of the way for transport

Ink cartridges are small. I wonder how long they will last. Doesn't hold much blank paper. Feels slightly fragile. But for the price, can't really complain

Consumer review by:

Well worth the $50 I paid!

 

Just got is but so far, no problems at all...even with the install problems i've read. I'm running Windows XP-Pro. Prints text and photos just fine

None so far

Consumer review by:

very fast for home printing

 

very quick printing, reliable, cheap but not a pile of ass. Overall it is a very easy and effective printer to use

the installation for the printer was a bit strange. I couldn't install it about 20 times, then it just worked all of a sudden. Eats up system memory and goes very slow for doing ultra-fine printing... but that's expected anyways from a $75 printer
