HP OfficeJet 3830 All-in-One Printer

 

The low-price, entry-level HP OfficeJet 3830 prints well and at reasonable running costs—when you sign up for HP's Instant Ink subscription program—but you give up some features and functionality for the savings.

Very low price. Light and compact. Impressive print quality. Low running costs with Instant Ink. Good-looking photos on HP photo paper. 35-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF). Touch screen is an unexpected amenity.

Running costs are exorbitant without Instant Ink. No auto-duplexing. Two-cartridge ink setup is potentially wasteful. Lacks flash memory support and Ethernet.

Bottom Line: The low-price, entry-level HP OfficeJet 3830 prints well and at reasonable running costs—when you sign up for HP's Instant Ink subscription program—but you give up some features and functionality for the savings.

HP Officejet 3830

 

There's a kind of law in working out the costs of owning a printer, which says that the less you pay for the machine, the more you pay for ink cartridges. This would be true of HP's low-end Officejet 3830 if it wasn't for the company's Instant Ink...

This is a good, basic all-in-one with many of the features you'd be looking for in a home office. If you don’t like the idea of buying ink on subscription, then running costs are relatively high. If Instant Ink makes sense to you, though, this is one...

HP OfficeJet 3830 review

 

Print from Android, iOS, Windows and Amazon devices

The initial purchase price of the OfficeJet 3830 is obviously very attractive, and will appeal to many home users and smaller offices. Its running costs are also quite good when printing in colour, so it will be a good option for printing photos, or...

HP Officejet 3830 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The HP Officejet 3830 is a wi-fi all-in-one printer with a fairly sleek look and appealing price tag. It can print, copy, scan and fax and turns out fairly quick text prints. But how does it measure up for printing costs and quality? We've tested this...

HP OfficeJet 3830

 

This is a multi-function device which means it not only prints, scans and copies but for those who still use or need it the unit also has fax. It is quite small and light and runs with two cartridges, it is black but here that's OK as this is an office...

The HP OfficeJet 3830 measures 43x48x30cm the figures I have given are with the paper output shelf extended and paper in the rear upright paper tray. At the back left of the unit is where Ethernet or USB leads are inserted and the centre of the back is...

So far, I love this printer.

 

I love the all in one feature and love the copier. Mostly, it is a really great wireless printer. Much better than any other brands I've tried!! Very happy.

HP all in one wireless printer

Great product! Printer runs smoothly.

 

I love the HP office jet 3830! The print quality is excellent and the price was fair! The only thing I don't not like is that the feed does scan both the front and back of pages.
