The plastic of the HP deskjet 3630 is very fragile, especially the output tray. But you can forgive the look and feel, because HP has 40 massive features for you. Deskjet can print, copy and scan. In addition to the ubiquitous USB connection, it supports HP eprint, Wi Fi network and Wi Fi direct. The latter option means that even if you don’t have a wireless router, you can print wirelessly from devices such as smartphones and tablets. The 3630 comes with entry cartridges, so you need to replace them after about 100 pages.
The lack of touch on the HP deskjet 3630 panel means that you have to configure Wi Fi through HP’s own application (on the supplied CD or free from 123. HP. Com), which is simple: just tell the application which network printer to use. The application works for Mac and windows, and once the connection is established, it downloads the necessary drivers and utility software.
There is a 60 page input tray and a 25 page output tray, supporting plain paper (up to 90gsm), HP card and HP photo paper (300gsm); if you print on photo paper, the print is borderless, while on A4, the margin is 3mm. Print quality can be up to 1200 x 1200, or up to 1200 x 1200 if you print on a specific HP photo paper. The scanner is 1200 DPI and the copy speed is 600 x 300 dpi. Deskjet 3630 is designed for people or businesses who need moderate printing needs: 250 pieces per month is recommended.
As for performance and operating costs, deskjet is not the fastest inkjet printer, as you would expect for a low-cost printer. The official ISO speed is 8.5ppm and 6ppm black, but the speed of sketch mode can reach 20ppm black. You can see the first page in about 14 seconds. There is a quiet mode that makes the printer slower and quieter, but we don’t find the normal mode particularly noisy.
If you order HP’s instant ink service, it’s cheap, easy to install, easy to use, and quite cheap to run. While it doesn’t meet the specifications of more expensive models like HP’s own envy, it perfectly covers the basics. Mobile and tablet are supported. But it feels very vulnerable. There is no instant ink operation due to the relatively expensive and low production ink cartridge. The cost is relatively high. It is clearly designed for home and very small office use. If you plan to print hundreds of pages a month, don’t think about it.
Deskjet 3630 is an excellent printer with low price. It’s quite quiet, quite fast, provides good print quality, connects to mobile phones and tablets, and has a pretty good scanner and copier. If you buy ink cartridges in the store, it costs a lot to run, but if you choose instant ink, the cost of pages will drop dramatically, especially for color printing. This is an attractive option for buyers who don’t need to print too much often.
