 My take
I have been using the HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 3835 All-in-one printer for the last month.
 
Till now I have printed around 50 pages and have not experienced any loop holes with the print quality.
 

Although the build quality of the printer seems a bit heavy but the 2.2 inch touch mono display more than makes up for that.

 

After all looks does matter doesn’t it?
The highlight of HP Deskjet ink advantage 3835 all in one printer is its silent printing feature
 
Through this we can print loads of pages without making any noise

Now coming to its all in one features:

1) Copy
This feature looks quite smooth in functionality with print quality quite true to the original print as you can notice below
 

 

Colored Copy
Colored Copy
Black & White Copy
Black & White Copy
2) Scan

It comes with a flatbed & automatic document feeder that has ADF capacity of 35 sheets.

 

This feature also looks quite good for a printer at this price range.
3) Print

The print quality also comes out to be real nice keeping in mind the price segment of the printer.

 

The Border-less printing feature is a match winner and comes in handy while printing colored documents.

 

Print
4) Fax
I have still not used this feature but based on company claims it has a fax memory of upto 99 pages for B&W document.
The maximum Fax resolution supported by it is 300×300 dpi
 
The printer offers a good wireless functionality through the help of an HP smart mobile app.
This app is very useful as it not only helps in giving print commands to the printer remotely but also shows the amount of ink left in cartridges
 

Limitations:

 

Although HP Deskjet ink advantage 3835 all in one printer is quite feature loaded for a cost of under Rs.6000
But there are some limitations along with it which I could figure out after a month of usage like:
 
1) Cost per page is a bit expensive
 
2) It takes a slight longer time for colored printout
 
3) Ink usage is a bit high
 

Although HP Deskjet ink advantage 3835 all in one printer has some limitations but there is nothing to worry about considering the fact that it has some mind blowing features.

 

At a price of under Rs.6000 it can give some high end printers a run for their money.
 

So, for all those looking for a good multi function printer at an affordable price this is the printer for you.

 

The HP Deskjet ink advantage 3835 all in one printer is definitely a good buy for both home and small offices and is definitely worth all the hype it gets.
