Printer Review

Hey Guys!

I recently had to purchase a new printer, as my old one stopped working. I thought i’d share my thoughts on my new printer (and my old one) just in case someone is looking to purchase a new printer.

For my new printer i went with the HP Officejet 3830. Some of the reasons i choose this printer were:

  • Price (under $100)
  • Cost of ink (under $30 each)
  • Size (small)

My old printer (HP Officejet Pro 8610) was a great printer. I bought it back in 2016 and loved it very much. What i didn’t like about it was the cost of ink. Color ink cost over $60 and black ink was over $30. It was also very big, it took up a lot of space. One day it just started to display a message that my print head wasn’t installed (when it was) and it never worked again.

Back to my new printer, i really like how fast it prints/copies. I have no complaints there. However, i hate how little paper it holds, so you have to constantly add paper. It also gets quite a few paper jams. Also, when it is low on ink it will tell you, but once it runs out completely it won’t tell you, so you could be in the middle of printing something and it will just keep printing with no ink, so you are wasting paper because you will then have to reprint whatever it is you are printing.

I hope you enjoyed my thoughts on my printers. Do you have a printer you love? If so, let me know.
