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...

It's the best thing I bought. It can be slow but I think my internet was a bit so it affected the speed of printing. I o my use my phone to print stuff from this printer. It's small and it just does eveything it needs to do. It's just so convenient.
