The HP Deskjet 3558 inkjet printer sports a compact and rounded design that is perfect for tight spaces, and it has a budget price to go with it. Its speeds are adequate, at a maximum of 14 pages per minute, though HP 3558 printer ink is fairly expensive. Its print quality is fairly good, which could help it appeal to some bargain shoppers who value quality.
The 3558 sports an extremely simple design, with a curved top and a very small footprint. It measures 5.6x16.6x7.2 inches and weighs only 4.5 pounds without the Deskjet 3558 printer ink installed. The front tray slides into the machine, making it practically portable, and a good fit for college students and other transient individuals.
The input tray can hold up to 100 sheets of plain paper, and multiple media types are supported, including envelopes, greeting cards, transparencies, labels, and more. The unit includes only a single power button, relying on the software for most functionality, though it does double-duty to eject or reload paper when held. A single USB port is the only connection option, though a cable is included in the box, which is sometimes rare for such a low price.
The biggest downside to the unit is the cost of HP 3558 ink cartridges. Not only are the prices a bit high, but capacities are small. The tricolor Deskjet 3558 ink cartridge provides only 190 pages, while the black supply provides only 220 pages. Even using remanufactured HP 3558 ink prices are higher than those of some competing models.
Overall, the HP Deskjet 3558 inkjet printer offers impressive quality and unexpected speed for its low purchase price. Unfortunately, the initial savings will get eaten up by high operating costs over the long term, making other models a better value.
