The HP Deskjet 3512 is one of the most affordable all-in-one inkjet printers on the market to support mobile printing with ePrint and AirPrint, and offers decent print speeds of up to 16 pages per minute for color and 20 pages per minute for black. Its capacities are somewhat limited, but HP 3512 printer ink is cost-effective, and it offers a good blend of features for its low price.
The 3512 can print, scan, and copy, but doesn't include any faxing capabilities. Its design is compact enough for desktop use, with dimensions of 6.1x16.8x12 inches. Unpacking is easy, as it weighs just less than 8 pounds before the Deskjet 3512 printer ink is installed. The 2-inch LCD on the control panel doesn't offer full-color previews of images, but does offer simple control over the different functions. The paper capacity is only 80 sheets, which could be a problem for those who do a lot of printing.
With such a low retail price, the sharing and mobile printing features of the 3512 are even more impressive. It supports 802.11b/g/n protocols, and includes HP's ePrint technology for printing from the cloud, or from virtually any device that can send email. Apple's AirPrint technology is included as well, but the unit does lack a wired ethernet port. Many home users already have a wireless network in the house, however, and setting it up is quite simple.
User reviews generally praise the 3512, with a few mentioning high prices for HP 3512 ink cartridges. There are high-capacity Deskjet 3512 ink cartridges available which can help reduce the cost per page, however, and remanufactured HP 3512 ink is available from many third-party sellers.
With a small paper capacity and fewer features than more expensive models, some buyers might find the Deskjet 3512 a bit limited. Overall, though, it is a great offering for such a low price, and extras like mobile printing are unexpected bonuses.

HP Deskjet 3512 Instructional Video Transcript
The Deskjet 3512 takes the same printing, scanning, and copying features of other models in its lineup, but adds wireless support as well. HP’s ePrint platform can help users print from almost anywhere, and support for Apple AirPrint makes it easy to print from Apple devices like the iPhone and iPad.
Although the model shown differs in appearance, the process is the same.
With the printer powered on, raise the main cover from below the scanning lid. Notice that the cartridges move toward the center automatically.
You will find the black cartridge on the right and the color cartridge on the left. Raise the cover for the HP 3512 ink cartridge you need to replace, then lift it out of the machine.
Start preparing the replacement Deskjet 3512 cartridge by taking it out of its box, then opening and removing the plastic bag. Find the handles on the plastic protector and squeeze them together as you pry it off of the cartridge. Pull the protective tape strip away from the cartridge right before you install it.
Slide the new 3512 cartridge into the opening, letting it settle loosely, then close the small cover to hold it firmly in place. Slowly lower the printer’s main cover to finish the installation process.
You are now ready to resume printing with your HP Deskjet 3512 printer.
