HP OfficeJet 3830 All-In-One Printer Review
Before buying an HP OfficeJet 3830, you should first read our review. We’ll take a look at Print speed, Paper tray, and Ink cartridges. We’ll also discuss the Price.
Hopefully, we’ve given you enough information to make an informed decision. After all, we’re all looking for the best printer for our needs! But how can you make sure that you’re making the best purchase?
Print speed HP OfficeJet 3830
The HP OfficeJet 3830 is rated to print 8.5 pages per minute in monochrome and six pages per minute in color. We tested it using an Intel Core i5 PC running Windows 10 Home OS.
The printer printed a 13-page Microsoft Word document in 9.6 seconds – over a page per minute faster than the listed speed. It has no Ethernet connection, and the only other AIO without this connection does not have Wi-Fi.
The OfficeJet 3830 is capable of printing clear photos with decent color tones. However, it is one of the slowest printers we’ve tested. It can only print three pages per minute on average, and it is best used for the occasional printing of short documents and photographs.
It will take longer to print term papers. The HP OfficeJet 3830 does not include a scanning feature. It does, however, come with an ADF, which makes it a useful addition to your office.
Paper tray HP OfficeJet 3830
The HP OfficeJet 3830 uses a single 60-sheet paper tray at the rear of the printer. This is not much, considering that the output tray only holds 25 sheets. Compare this to the Canon TR8520, which holds up to 200 sheets from two 100-sheet sources.
The Brother MFC-J985DW, on the other hand, allows for 250 sheets in a single paper drawer. But there are some differences between these two printers, so you should be aware of those first.
After unplugging the printer and connecting it to the wireless network, open the software for the HP OfficeJet 3830 All-in-One printer. Then, open the downloaded software from the HP website by clicking on the download bar of your web browser.
Be sure to accept the terms of service or ask Windows User Account Control for permission to make changes to your computer. Next, follow the instructions that come with the software drivers.
To keep costs low, you can buy replacement ink cartridges for your HP OfficeJet 3830 printer. This printer uses the HP 63 ink cartridges, which are available in black and tricolor.
HP offers both black and tricolor 63XL cartridges as well as compatible replacements. The standard size ink cartridge is HP 63 and the high yield HP 63XL ink cartridges are compatible with the printer.
Original HP Ink cartridges are the most expensive type, but you can find high-quality compatible ink for this printer for much cheaper prices. You can also opt for HP Instant Ink to save up to 50% on ink. HP Original high-yield ink cartridges allow you to print twice as many pages as standard HP ink cartridges.
These printers are affordable and reliable. With the help of a remanufactured HP ink cartridge, you can print more than twice as much as the original HP ink.
The HP OfficeJet 3830 is an all-in-one inkjet printer with print, scan, and fax capabilities. It does not offer duplex printing. You should use compatible ink cartridges to extend the life of your printer. Using aftermarket ink cartridges will not void your printer’s warranty.
All aftermarket cartridges carry a lifetime warranty. OEM cartridges come with a standard manufacturer warranty.
Using this AIO can get expensive. The cost of printing a monochrome page costs nine cents, while color pages cost twenty-one cents. This high cost is exacerbated by the fact that you will need XL-size ink cartridges.
This means that you must monitor your ink consumption and order new cartridges regularly. HP OfficeJet 3830 is not a cheap printer, but you can easily print 300 pages per month for about $40-$50.
