The HP Deskjet 3840 is a color inkjet designed for the home or small office, and will particularly appeal to buyers who want high-quality photo output provided by the 6-color HP 3840 ink system. Print speeds are quite fast, at up to 18 pages per minute, and printer ink is very affordable, saving users money over time.
The 3840 has a serious focus on photo printing, with the ability to print borderless 4x6 prints all the way up to 8.5x11, though the larger sizes do include borders. The 1200 dpi resolution creates very sharp prints with excellent detail, and users can choose from a wide variety of media types to get the exact look they want. The software is very easy to use and set up, but also offers a lot of control when desired.
The printer ink system for the 3840 incorporates 4 HP 3840 ink cartridges, three colors and one black. For those who want higher-quality photos, however, they can install 2 special HP 3840 ink cartridges for deeper blacks and more contrast.
Compared to similar models in its price range, the 3840 has some advantages that may appeal to certain buyers. The 6-ink system gives it the edge over the average inkjet model when it comes to photo quality. The compact design and affordable price of the 3840 beats out much of its competition, however.
Overall, buyers who want a solid everyday printer will like the 3840's ease of use and excellent software. The 6-ink system provides sharp quality output right out of the box, and keeps costs to a minimal with decent-sized page yields. The machine's ability to work with PC and Mac platforms is a nice bonus, and its combination of a low upfront price and fast speeds makes it a good fit for almost any need.
