Summary: A very good printer that takes little space. At $49 I thought it was good way to get started in color printing, since I'd been using a B&W lasterjet for so many years. My husband is so impressed that he told me I could upgrade to another printer and he's take the HP 3745 for his own office.
Summary: I purchased this printer for my office at work. Once in a while I need to print a single page or two and don't want to bother walking to the other side of the building to pick it up from the shared printer. The printer is small and fits into my desk space well.
Summary: I have to tell you that this little printer is totally impressive for such a low price. Only minor complaint is no USB cable, but I happen to have a spare. Minor bugs to sort out at first and one call to HP tech help and they answered the phone on the first ring everything has been really perfect.
Summary: i am disappointed in this printer for the way it handles feeding the paper. It jams, or puts through many blank pages, or refuses to work at all if the paper tray has too much (seemingly a normal amount) of paper in it.
Summary: This is a good quality printer but there's still a few problems. First, ink only lasts about 100 to 120 pages so it's not good for constant printing, and second the description says "quiet and smooth", this printer does run fairly smooth but isn' that quiet.
Summary: I purchased this printer in Fall 2004. I used it for household printing needs from that time until November 2011 when it was having some errors and quit working. I think that the 7 years of printing could be some sort of testament to how I feel about this printer.
Summary: I'll be honest. I'm not a fan of HP. I worked in the IT field for a number of years, and they always caused me headaches. I bought this printer solely because it was cheap. I guess I owe HP an apology now, because this little printer has been nearly perfect for me.
Summary: I bought this printer in replacement of another HP Deskjet printer (I wore it out after 4 years). It is super quiet and fast! It was easy to install as well. Like most printers, it did not come with a USB cable - but it is easy to find a cable for it (2.0 or 1.1 USB Cable will work).
Summary: Even though it didn't include the usb cable it is a very good printer.It's b&w prints are of high quality.It prints 14ppm in b&w,which is quite fast.It just spits it out.It also is very quiet and small.Keep in mind the usb cable it needs is the Belkin Pro Series USB 2.0 Device Cable (USB A/USB B]...
Mechanically sound, but installation software a problem

Summary: First, for a low-end printer, the HP 3745 is pretty good, once you get it working. It is fairly quiet, and prints with little streaking. It is a bit slow, but high speed is not something I was expecting from a low priced printer. I did have considerable problems with the installation software.
