    It's a little slower than what I would have liked, but the price, on sale, was right.

    Does everything you need, and get free ink for life with instant ink. Only downside I can think of is that it could be a little faster at printing

    For the price this is a great value. I kind of wished I spent a little more to buy a faster printer

    Regular HP econoline scanner/printer/copier/fax. Previous models had print speed issue IMHO, but this one is little faster.

    This printer isn't the fastest I have ever used but is is adequate for my needs. It is cost effective and inexpensive. The printing seems to be no better or no worse than other printers that cost about the same. In short, this printer is about average for a printer in this price range.

    Bought the printer based on price, but salespeople kept pushing ink program; did not emphasize printer. Got it home and found ink cost double what my old hp did and four times what competitors do! No wonder they pushed the ink program. Brought it back and bought a competitive model. It prints slower, but has better print and 1/4 the per page price.

    nice little home office printer, checks all the boxes: print:copy:scan and fax. what more do u need? not really suited for buisness use, its not the fastest printer u can buy but it is quieter than most. all in all a good printer for the kids homework and copying receipts and such. only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is the cheapness of the paper tray, it does the job but seems sort of flimsy to me.

    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

    Easy to set up, quiet and produces excellent quality prints both in documents as well as color prints. Draw back relatively speaking, is volume output is slower than many office designed printers, but the quality of print is far better by design. Besides many letters, documents from 3-30 pages, I've been getting back into photography and have been most pleased with the color print quality. Compare the print quality data across printers, even within the HP stock and you'll readily see the 3830 is far higher than most. Besides photos, I want my professional and personal correspondences to look outstanding and this printer provides just that. Not having high volume print needs in the briefest time possible, this printer is excellent in itself and outstanding for the price range.

    I picked this printer up as a quick backup to use until I could replace my primary printer. Setup was ridiculously easy, and we were printing from my laptop, surface, and iPad in about 15 minutes. I have yet to use the duplex or scan function, but I have little doubt it works as advertised. It is not the fastest printer in the world (I knew that going in), and it is pretty loud. For the price, that is no big deal. I read a few negative reviews online about setup difficulty and print quality, but I have no issues like this. I also signed up for the HP ink replenish program, which is super easy as well, and very flexible.

    I purchased this printer so my kids would leave my office printer alone. I have 1 kid in high school and the others in middle school, they all need to print school essays and reports etc. So I decided to purchase this specifically for them. So far it works GREAT for their needs. It can print in black and in color. It isn't the fastest printer but it isn't the slowest either. It doesn't take up too much space which is GREAT.
