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.Full Review
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 InkFull Review

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 anFull Review
A:AnswerGood question. Yes, this printer has single cartridge mode where you can use just one cartridge to print if one cartridge is out of ink. You have to remove the empty cartridge in order for single cartridge mode to work. This printer has 1 black cartridge and 1 tricolor cartridge.
I hope this helps.
A:AnswerThis printer has a couple of options for scanning. It does have a flatbed scanner. You can also load a sheet of paper on the collapsible top tray and it will feed in once you choose to scan from the top tray. Also, to make your life a whole lot simpler, when you download the drivers from the HP website, be sure and download the software for this printer. You can scan multiple documents and compile them into one PDF file. It makes everything so much simpler.
A:AnswerIf you elect to turn the wireless feature on, you can connect to the printer both via USB cable and wireless. Your best option, although somewhat technical, is to set up your printer as a network printer and then you can connect via all your devices. Additionally, with this option, when your friends or family come over, they will be able to connect and print a lot easier with your permission.
