Expert review by : Simon Williams (

HP DeskJet 3720


The HP DeskJet 3720 is a return to the world of ultra-budget multi-function photo printers. A decade ago, most of the major printer manufacturers made photo printers – small-format devices whose sole task was to print photos, usually from PCs or Macs...

Brownie points to HP for trying a new take on the home all-in-one printer, but there are much better printers to be had for similar money.

HP Deskjet 3720 review

  (Rating Hidden)

HP claims that the HP Deskjet 3720 is the world's smallest all-in-one. Putting the marketing hype aside, however, it's certainly a compact little printer, and the bright blue accents should brighten up a small home office or study. Can it match good...

HP Deskjet 3720


This is said to be the world’s smallest A4 All In One unit, being small you lose the option to have a flatbed scanner as that would increase the size but the sheet fed scanner works well and the unit is ideal to use remotely with a mobile phone.

Small and compact - like me (*_*)


Doesn't take up much space - easy to install - Instant Ink easy to set up. Definitely worth it if you don't print that much.

fits in tight spaces


It's pretty small is this and works pretty well. This wasn't for myself but my mum who has told me other than using the ink pretty quick (which is cheap to buy) it's a great all round printer for a tight space as its pretty small. Best for occasional use.
