The HP Deskjet 3755 Versatile Printer is the world’s smallest versatile home printer (AIO).
It is certainly small and has a unique style. Unlike the commercially intended HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile All-in-One, 3755 Editors Portable AIO for consumers, especially millennials, is looking to print photos from mobile devices.
The 3755’s low speed and scatter feature limit it to lightweight use, but it should perform well in its intended role.
Dimensions The HP DeskJet 3755 measures 15.86 by 6.97 by 5.55 inches, which is very small with desktop printers. You will have no problem installing this small printer in the desktop layout next to your home computer.
It weighs only 5.13 pounds, so it’s light enough to move around the house if you need it in another room, although it’s heavier than other compact printers we’ve reviewed, such as the HP OfficeJet Mobile 200.
But when you consider that most regular home printers weigh between 15 and 40 pounds, the HP DeskJet 3755 is relatively light.
So if you need to move the printer a lot between rooms (maybe share a printer with several students in the dormitory), this printer will be great for you.
The HP Deskjet 3755 input tray can hold up to 60 pages at a time and has a folding output tray that can hold up to 25 printed pages, which can be used to print a long report or article. A useful page. Go this is almost compatible with other small printers like the Epson WF-110.
The HP DeskJet 3755 has a built-in scanner that is great for quickly digitizing printed documents and transferring them to a computer or laptop.
Print quality is good but not perfect. Ordinary documents we printed were marked with several dots of finger-sized ink, and color printing suffered from significant stripes. Black and white documents print at a reasonable speed of 7.89 pages per minute, but color documents print at a much slower speed of 3.75 pages per minute. This is predictable, as color documents usually take longer, no matter what printer you use.
The DeskJet 3755 has a built-in scanner and built-in copier, but the small size of the device requires a scrolling scanner that scans because it feeds separate pages instead of a flatbed scanner.
The scan and copy quality was good, but strangely at 75% the original copy size is the default. You can change this in the settings though.
The price of HP ink is usually not bad, but the cost of printing per page is high for an inkjet printer, and two standard size ink cartridges (black and three colors) sell for about $ 16 to $ 17. HP offers larger high-capacity XL cartridges that further reduce costs.
HP also offers a cheaper alternative through its Instant Ink subscription service, which delivers discounted ink to you by mail if needed. For most users, the subscription price is much cheaper than buying the same ink cartridges without it.
The HP DeskJet 3755 connects to your PC or laptop via USB cable or WiFi connection and is compatible with both Windows and Mac devices.
Printing from your smartphone is also possible thanks to the compatibility of Apple AirPlay and Google Cloud Print, as well as HP’s proprietary ePrint app that works with a range of smartphones and tablets.
Unfortunately, there is no extra USB port or SD media card slot, so you can not print directly from those storage devices. Given the small size and low cost of this printer, it is difficult to expect such features.
The 3755 measures 5.6 by 15.9 by 7 inches (HWD) when closed, 10.4 by 15.9 by 17.8 inches with stretched trays and weighs 5.1 pounds. This is the ideal ratio for the Epson Expression Home XP-430 Small-in-One, which measures 5.4 by 15.4 by 11.8 inches – more than 4 inches deeper than the 3755.
3755 is available in seven colors, each of which is a combination of two colors and white. Our test unit is Electric Electric. Other colors available in North America include seaweed, dragonfly blue, sporty purple, cardinal red, stone and poppy pink.
An Atypical All-in-One
An unusual feature is what HP calls a scanning beam, which is a bent piece of plastic that sits horizontally on top of the printer. You scan a page by sliding under the beam. It feeds and appears on the other side.
3755 does not have a bed and automatic document feeder. Plates must be fed at one time.
The right end of the beam has a control panel with a small monochrome screen and control buttons to enable color or monochrome scanning, enable/disable Wi-Fi or Wireless Direct, cancel or resume printing, or enable HP Becomes. Web Services.
The connection is via USB or 802.11b / g / n Wi-Fi. It also supports direct, peer-to-peer connectivity with a compatible PC or mobile device via Wireless Direct.
3755 Compatible with Apple AirPrint and HP ePrint. Works well with the HP Smart mobile app.
Good for photos
Since the 3755 is primarily designed for photo printing, and photos are one of HP’s strengths, it is not surprising that the image quality is above average, despite the fact that it has only two ink tanks – one for black and one for ink. Another for turquoise, magenta and yellow – while most printers have a separate tank for each color.
Most of our test prints were at least as good as we expected from a pharmacy print, and a few prints were better. The details in the bright areas were lost in a little print, and our monochrome image was a little faded.
Small and affordable, but not fast
The HP Deskjet 3755 All-in-One is an unusual AIO printer. Small size, reasonable price, and beautiful design put it in its class. Against these strengths, high print speed and lack of common versatile features, including ADF (or a flatbed), automatic duplexer, touch screen, SD card reader, one-finger USB drive port, fax capability, touch screen And photo tray.
These omissions, along with an input tray of only 60 sheets, make the 3755 lightweights for use. Obviously not for everyone. But if you are looking for a small, elegant, and inexpensive printer that primarily uses mobile devices to print photos, it can be an ideal choice.
- Good mobile-printing capabilities.
- Very good photo quality.
- Low paper capacity.
- Lacks auto-duplexer.
- Scanner has neither ADF nor flatbed.
- Sub-par graphics quality.
The HP DeskJet 3755 is used as a family printer. While it has good photo printing quality and impressive color accuracy, it has important drawbacks in terms of performance.
The very low performance of the screen means that you may have to change the cartridges often and it costs a lot for each print. It also lacks a flatbed scanner, so you may not be able to scan delicate documents or bulky items.
