The HP Deskjet 3740 color inkjet printer is designed for simplicity and value. Its ultra compact design features an 80-sheet paper tray that can be folded up for storage. The printer produces vibrant photo quality—up to 4800-optimized dpi color*—from a single color cartridge (*Up to 4800 x 1200-optimized dpi color and 1200-input dpi). It’s suited for basic printing needs with up to 10 pages per minute in black and color.
