    Great for my purpose

    I bought this rather inexpensive printer for one purpose - to print out my and my daughters' Christmas card envelopes. The printer design allows for direct feed of paper or envelopes rather than like most other printers which move the paper or envelope around a roller. The rollers of other printers are not kind to foil lined envelopes and they jam up. Would have given it 5 stars, but some of the screen and button motions are tedious and not always intuitive.

    I was in need of a new printer that allowed wireless printing. Found this one and couldn’t be happier. The price was great and the set up was easy. I read the starter ink did not last long, but that hasn’t been my experience. I bought a new ink cartridge but still have not used it as the starter pack is still going after several prints. If you do basic at home printing, I would highly recommend. It is easy to set up and works well.

    The Hp office jet 3830 is a great all around printer. Got it at a wonderful sale price around Christmas time. Set up was simple and the WiFi feature lets me print easily from my iPhone or iPad. The only thing I am disappointed in is the fact that this printer is not compatible with windows xp that I have on my desktop computer, so I can’t print from that. I know, I need an updated “windows”.

    Out of all the HP printers I have owned and HP is all I have bought since my last memory. 1st it came with a a full tank of both ink wells. The printing is excellent. The price was also too good to pass up. My other HP was having issues and $40 was a good enuf price to give my printer to a friend who refurbish old printers and 2nd this printer setup in 20 minutes. Buy for a backup printer ... the ink iseconomical. Well worth the price..

    Overall I’m satisfied with this printer. The print quality is decent for my personal purposes. The only complaint I have is that the paper tray is so small. It would be better if there was a larger feed tray and a better catcher. Do not be fooled into thinking you need to install the software. You can easily connect it to the WiFi manually on the printer itself without downloading the software with the annoying prompts to sign up for their ink service.

    First off you can’t beat the price. This is the third HP insta ink printer I have purchased in two years. (One for me two for my adult kids). Second having ink sent to the house when you subscribe to the very cheap Instaink delivery service is amazing. The subscription is well below buying one ink cartridge. The printers print great never have a problem and are very easy to set up. Well worth the $$$$

    I read some reviews that this is very hard to set up. For me it was very easy. Took me about 15 min(could have been faster if I decided to go on youtube right away) Just go on youtube & there are ppl there that show u how to set it up. I got this for my 12 yr old daughter for school. She rarely needs to print but it did a great job when she used it. I'm happy with this purchase

    I have a black and white laser printer I use for most things, but needed color for my resumes. This was on sale for 40, so I decided to buy one rather than go to Staples and print there. Also, I never buy the extended warranty, but for 5, if the nozzles clog or cartridge leaks from not being used, I can take it in and get another printer. Also, since it's wifi, I've actually used it more than I normally would, because of mobile printing.

    I needed a printer but didn't want to spend a lot because I do t use it often. This printer is great because it connects to the wifi and allows you to print from phone rather than have to print from computer. So far really happy with my purchase. Quality is good however if you are looking for rich photo realistic quality this isn't the printer for you. Again, this is a great little machine for those that print a doc. Once in a while not meant for heavy use.

    Okay printer, you get what you pay for

    I bought this printer because it was on sale, but had trouble setting it up. Once I got it set up, it prints okay but can jam with a stack of printer paper in the tray, so I have to use one piece of paper at a time, which gets a little annoying. Overall, I would rather it was easier to set up and use but if you just need a cheap all in one printer, it's okay. I haven't used the scanner or copy functions, just the printer function.

    Took a whole day to connect my mac to this printer. The problem was with the firewall and after contacting hp customer service they were olmy able to help me but making it work while turning the firewall off. Luckily, i did research on my own and figured out how to surpass this issue and have my firewall on while printing. Long story short they should make this much easier to install especially for mac books and att macafee firewalls.

    When our old printer started acting up I looked to go with an all in one to add to our home's capabilities. Not looking to spend a lot I found this gem that handles all my needs without breaking the bank. I have used the fax, copier and printer and have been pleased with all. I did choose to stay away from the ink plan as it did not seem beneficial to me. Great device for home use.

    I love the fact that i was able to link it to my Surface RT. at first i had purchased an LG exterior hard drive to be able to install the HP 3830 printer on to my Surfac RT, but the LG driver was no compatable with my Sureface RT,,, got my money back from Best Buy, and went with the On Line Printers "3830 all in one series" Down Loads from the HP website, It took about 20 Minuets,,, at the end i got what i wanted with out havig to spend any extra money,, and I was happy.. Thanks

    This is the first printer I've ever purchased that came with full size ink cartridges, that alone made it a great deal. Print quality is fantastic for a mid sized printer, and I love that I can print from my phone, tablet, or laptop without using any wires. Download the app and you can keep track of how much ink you have. I purchased this one specifically because it has a scanner, which I've only used for documents so far, but so far it works well.

    This printer is in the category where you know that the manufacturer is always going to make money from the supplies and not necessarily from the printer. Speaking of supplies, HP Instant Ink is an interesting proposition and I have run the numbers for several instances and it does look like it could save money in the long run. Time will tell if this printer will hold up as well as some of the older units.

    Needed something more practical for everyday home use and this did the job! The plus side of it is that when its low on ink, it will order ink on its own (as long as your enrolled in the hp ink program which has a small cost depending on your printing habits). The small down side of it is that the LCD touch screen is b/w. That really is very small in comparison to that fact you get a quality printer for a great deal. I've always had an hp printer and loved how user friendly they've been.

    I needed something simple that could print, fax, scan copy at a great price. This printer was perfect for this task and works great. My wife and I had a little problem connecting the HP Scan software at first, but that all changed when my wife started a chat with HP Customer Service. They gave step by step direction on how the get the scanner up and running. They even sent a follow email to make sure everything was working fine.

    The convenience of printing on the go is awesome. I just email the docs or the info embedded in the body of the email and it prints. Simple as that. It even printed my Excel worksheets. It makes a crazy Transformers sound when it powers on. It's not a bad thing. Has a touch screen. Prints great. Scans great. Not sure how much ink costs yet. But it's been printing quite a bit and I'm enrolled in the HP replenish program.

    Very good printing with reasonable speed. wifi connectivity works well. The weak side is scanning. Not good for scanning a batch of, for example, old photos. The software setting is very awkward that it takes so much before you can go from current scan of four photos (with auto crop by the full version software) to the next four. Scanner speed is slow. The simple version of the software (HP Smart) only scan at a maximum of 300 dpi and doesn't do auto crop.
