Buyers probably wouldn't expect great quality from an inkjet printer as compact as the HP Deskjet 3647, but they would be wrong. It provides surprisingly good output for its size and price, and it is even fairly quick, at up to 17 pages per minute in black and 12 pages per minute in color. The savings on the upfront price may get eaten up by the high prices for HP 3647 printer ink, however.
The 3647 is one of HP's most compact models, and is ideally suited for home users, college students, and others in tight spaces. With a footprint of only 16.9x8.1 inches and a height of 5.7 inches, it occupies very little space, and it weighs only 5.1 pounds without the HP 3647 ink supplies. The front tray slides back into the unit when not in use, and can hold up to 100 sheets of plain paper, as well as supporting different media types such as envelopes, labels, transparencies, and more.
There is really not control panel to speak of, with only a few buttons available. As a result, most of the features are controlled through the included software, where users can choose from one of five different print modes depending on whether they wish to prioritize speed (and use less Deskjet 3647 printer ink) or quality. The unit has an optimized resolution of up to 4800 dpi and HP's PhotoREt III technology that produces better quality than expected for such an inexpensive model.
Generally, the machine operates with one black HP 3647 ink cartridge and one combined tricolor supply. Replacing the black Deskjet 3647 ink cartridge with an optional "photo" supply allows for 6-color printing for better results and color accuracy.
Buyers will certainly get a lot of value from the HP 3647 inkjet printer, considering its low price and excellent output quality. Its main drawback is expensive operating costs, however, so users who do a lot of printing may need to find a more cost-effective solution.
