Printers don't come much cheaper than this. The HP Deskjet 3630 has an RRP of £40 including VAT and Amazon's currently doing it for £35.We know what you're thinking: cheap printers mean expensive ink. Does that apply here? The answer is yes, but al...
It's really cheap
Decent quality and speed
Instant Ink offers genuine savings
Looks and feels flimsy
Shop, bought cartridges are expensive
Basic paper handling
Deduct 2 stars if you don't go for Instant Ink: normal cartridges have high per-page costs......

The new HP, the one called HP Development Company, hasn't been shy when it comes to trying new things. Between the world's thinnest laptop (the HP Spectre), a 3-in-1 smartphone (the HP Elite x3) and the world's fastest desktop printers (the Officejet...
Very compact
Not expensive for the functionality you're getting
Ink cartridges represent reasonable value
Not particularly quick at printing and scanning
Print quality isn't great
Scanner lacks edge detection
This HP all-in-one is impressively light and compact, but it sacrifices too much in the way of quality to achieve this and keep the price down......

The up-front cost of the DeskJet 3630 is genuinely good value for money. The colour ink cartridges aren't too expensive either, so you can certainly use the printer for the occasional photo print, or for school reports or presentations that use colou...

A few years ago Epson launched a range of compact ?small-in-one' printers that were specifically designed for people who were a bit tight for space at home. It's taken HP a while to come up with something similar, but the company now claims that its ...
We like the compact design of the DeskJet 3720, and its print quality and performance are good for a printer that costs just £55.00. However, its running costs are pretty high even if you commit to HP's Instant Ink scheme, so the DeskJet 3720 will o...
