HP Officejet Pro 8720 Review


Great value if you frequently print in color and need an all-in-one

Nice interface, good graphics quality

Poor text quality, large

The Officejet Pro 8720 is a great choice for someone that needs the full functionality of an all-in-one, often prints color graphics, and has a good amount of desk space to spare. However, if any one of these descriptors doesn't apply to you there are...

The Best All-in-One Printer


After 35 hours of new research and testing, we found that the HP OfficeJet Pro 8720 is the least-bad all-in-one printer for your home.

  (Rating Hidden)

Although not cheap for an inkjet, the HP Officejet Pro 8720 has all the features and functions you'd expect from a modern all-in-one. It's certainly not the quietest printer we've ever tested, but that can be forgiven if the prints it produces look...

Great product. Use online HP installation support.


Printer was an upgrade to previous HP printer. Impressive improvements. Instillation performed by HP on-line. Probably key to successful launch.

HP Officejet Pro 8720


I have been using HP Printers for many years and I am glad to report this printer lives up to your high standards. I replaced my 8620 because I was unable to print when Windows 10 upgraded my system. The driver for the printer was unavailable. After...

An excellent all in one color printer


The HP 8720 produces excellent results at a reasonable cost per page. It may not be quite as fast as a laser printer but one doesn't have to wait long for high quality output.

Great design & features/excellent print quality


I decided to upgrade from the 6978 Office Pro for my home/home office needs. Yes, this is a big printer and for home use make sure it fits your environment, but if it does it can be a superior home solution for either a family or home office. I am...
