How it performs in case of Family/ Office/ and Student Use

Family use

The HP DeskJet 3755 All-in-One printer is an excellent choice for families. The cost-per-print is high because of the need to change cartridges frequently. The print quality is clear, legible, and free from blurring. The printer does not come with a flatbed scanner, so it cannot scan delicate documents or bulky items. Although it lacks an ADF scanner, it has excellent photo printing and good color accuracy.

Small business

The HP DeskJet 3755 printer is good for home offices where there are not a lot of employees. Because it is very slow to print black or color documents and they need to wait. The black ink cartridges bring out a low number of pages. With the sheetfed scanner, you can scan only one page at a time, which takes a long time.

The printer can print, scan, copy and do wireless printing including Apple AirPrint. You can also connect it to the HPs Instant Ink program. This program will send you automatic ink cartridges just before the ink runs out. For this, you need to pay a small fee monthly.
