What customers say about "Key Specs"
HP Deskjet 3630 All-in-One Printer
  • Print quality and speed satisfactory using cable connection.
  • Good printing speed and sharp images. Ideal remote for my iPad.
  • Hard to say how much ink it is taking, I realised I don't print too often - maybe 5 pages per week. So I am still very good with the ink that came with it.
  • Easy to install, yeah, but that's about it - setting aside all the great and cooool features it's a printer first and foremost so you'd expect the printing speed to be at least average.
  • One problem with this printer is the wireless printing speed, it took 1min 50sec to print 1 page. If you want a fast printer, I would look elsewhere!
HP Envy 4520 All-in-One Color Photo Printer with Wireless
  • The machine is also much quieter and faster than the 2 previous printers that I have had.
  • Delivered 4 days ago,have already tried printing a photo on photo paper and on plain paper and both look great.
  • The item was very easy to set up both to the computer and wireless. Printing quality is also very good and the addition of a paper draw rather than the paper standing up at the back is great.
  • My new HP is everything the old printer wasnt! Very easy to set up and use.
  • After less than 6 months and not particularly heavy usage, this is poor quality. Would not recommend.

What customers say about "Printing / Scanning"
HP Deskjet 3630 All-in-One Printer
  • Printing speed is a little slow but quality is very high.
  • Scans look very good so I will buy some better paper.
  • Prints look quite good on the cheap recycled paper I was using.
  • Scanner not of great quality, quite disappointed compared to other cheap inkjet scanner combos I've used.
  • No control panel. If you need to scan you must command from your computer.
HP Envy 4520 All-in-One Color Photo Printer with Wireless
  • Scan and print quality is fine, and, interestingly, print speeds are faster via my wi-fi than via USB cable.
  • The tray holds a wodge of paper - enough for me - and feeds itself.
  • The scanner works perfectly with good clear copies and the photocopier is as good too.
  • I have sent an email print job to the printer and each task was completed flawlessly.
  • Had this printer for a couple of months now,I mainly wanted this for the photos,Which print out excellent as long as you use the good photo paper.

What customers say about "Cartridges"
HP Deskjet 3630 All-in-One Printer
  • This is a very good printer! It comes with a Black and Tri-colour Ink Cartridge so you can start using it straight away.
  • Bought this printer a few months ago, I chose it because the ink cartridges are pretty low cost, which will work out better long term.
  • Printing of pictures is only ok and the cartridges don't seem to last too long, but good enough, if you only print every so often!
  • No magenta colour in the ink despite several attempts at cleaning cartridge.
  • The print is so faint it's barely legible. All software up to date. Run diagnostics test which says cartridges are full. Really fed up with it.
HP Envy 4520 All-in-One Color Photo Printer with Wireless
  • I use the HP ink system and find it very useful. The printer tells HP when to send new ink, I don't have to worry about it.
  • Pleased with this printer. Does everything, and the automatic ink replacement service is awesome.
  • The cartridges last longer than xl cartridges from the shop. Really good, convenient, easy to use compact printer.
  • My only gripe is it runs out of black ink very suddenly with no warning.
  • Photos ok. Ink cartridges provided with the printer won't last very long!

What customers say about "Features"
HP Deskjet 3630 All-in-One Printer
  • For the money the printer is fantastic, it looks GREAT with some very pleasing fold away options.
  • Wireless feature is nice to have. Saves plugging in every time, and means it can sit in a corner away from everything except a socket.
  • My mobile phones and tablet have no problem printing to it via Wi-Fi, so handy.
  • The installation and set up under Windows 10 using the supplied CD very easy, and connection to my Wi-Fi was particulary hassle free.
  • The printer itself is pretty quiet, and prints fairly quickly, but the main annoyance is the WiFi connectivity is very poor, and I often have to resort to connecting via USB.
HP Envy 4520 All-in-One Color Photo Printer with Wireless
  • The touch-screen is very easy to use (easier than manual buttons).
  • Double-sided printing is magic - I don't know how it works, but you don't have to print one side and then reload the paper to print the reverse side - it prints both sides without reloading!
  • It does duplex printing (both sides), booklets (you fold yourself after printing) and has colour of course.
  • It does double sided printing, prints pretty quick and has an easy to use touch interface.
  • Very disappointed in this printer. I never had a problem with my last two printers but this one really struggles to connect and my laptop can never seem to "find " it!
