Dual cartridge for easy maintenance
Printer users often worry that the less you pay for a printer, the more the running cost of printing. However, this is not so for this HP Officejet 3832 all-in-one printer. The product is designed to maintain a low price for printing without any compromise on quality. This design makes it very easy to maintain and cheaper to run.
The twin cartridge carriers slide into the mid carriage. More so, this technique makes it smooth to push in and out the cartridges, and at the sound of a click, the cartridge fits in rightly. There are no worries in printing either monochrome or color. Both are equally cheaper due to the device’s ink saving technology.
The HP Officejet 3830 printer is a moderate speed printer as the rate for monochrome is 8.5 ppm. The colored pages print at the speed rate of 6.0 pages per minute (ppm). Practical tests from our users even established that it was better in use than in theory. This speed becomes advantageous in having to do a lot of work in little time.
The printer has a USB port at the rear end of it for cables. However, there are a means of wireless connection which is also very fast to link up. The wireless connection does not have Near Field Connection though. This connection permits virtually all kinds of devices to connect. These include smartphones such as Android, iPhones (AirPrint), and tablets.
These connections are more comfortable with the HP ePrint app which works well with Android and AirPrint of iOS. Other available software includes HP Photo Creations and Update. The drivers are readily available for download. The connectivity, therefore, consists of a Wi-Fi connection and a USB 2.0.
The Officejet 3830 is highly compatible with a wide range of operating systems. For example, MS Windows 7, Vista, 8, 8.1, and 10. Apple devices with MacOS 10.8, 10.9 and 10.10 are also easy to connect.
Instant Ink technology
HP Officejet 3832 all-in-one printer has a very impressive draft mode that enables ink saving. When eventually the colored pages are produced, the graphics are in bright, dense and sharp colors. As a result, the HP Instant Ink Service scheme can reduce the cost of printing effectively.
1. No duplex printing
2. Tri-color cartridge can be wasteful
3. Some paper notifications can be annoying
4. Low capacity input tray with just 60 sheets
5. A very narrow frontal output tray
6. Output tray of just 25-sheet capacity
7. No Near-Field-Connection (NFC) technology for wireless connection
The functional features of this printer make it suitable for office use. So, if that is what you are looking for, it fits perfectly. But if you don’t like regularly buying ink on subscription, you may have to spend more on printing costs. The printer scores high on features, speed, value, print quality, specifications, scanning, and printing. Therefore, for durable and long-lasting use, I recommend this HP Officejet 3832 all-in-one printer.
