The HP Deskjet 3645 takes the concept of a compact personal inkjet to the extreme, with a very small profile that is perfect for home users, and a small price tag that won't break the bank. Print speeds max out at 17 pages per minute for black and 12 pages per minute for color, but expensive HP 3645 printer ink makes it less cost-effective than many competing models.
Although quite a few compromises were made in the design of the 3645, print quality doesn't seem to have been one of them. Using PhotoREt III technology, the unit can produce 1200x1200 dpi prints with sharp text, and photos are resistant to fading, thanks to the advanced Deskjet 3645 printer ink. Users can choose the priority of quality or speed with multiple print modes.
The small frame of the 3645 might be its most impressive feature, however. It measures only 5.7 inches tall with a footprint of 16.9x8.1 inches. It is easily moved around, with a weight of just 5.1 pounds without the HP 3645 ink installed, and with the front tray pushed in, it is practically portable. The machine connects via USB port, and is compatible with both Windows and Mac computers.
Besides the two standard HP 3645 ink cartridges, users have the option of adding a special "photo" cartridge. This extra Deskjet 3645 ink cartridge replaces the black supply, and upgrades from 4 colors to 6, for better photo quality. Unfortunately, prices for replacements tend to run a little high.
The compact design of the Deskjet 3645 inkjet will no doubt be very appealing for space-challenged buyers, and its low purchase price will appeal to those on a tight budget. Its limited speeds and high operating costs will probably limit its appeal for the average user, however, and spending just a little more upfront for a more cost-effective model could save a lot in the long run.
