Summary: Needed this for a key box system at work due to the firmware, this is the only printer that it will use. Found this from a seller ordered it and took it out of the box installed ink and it works great. Got a good deal and no problems.
Summary: This was a terrible printer. It never worked properly once, it always a paper jam and the ink carriage was not working correctly. I would never recommend this printer. Only good thing i got out of paying for a bad printer was when I got a full refund back for it.
Summary: The seller tried to ship it as media mail. When it arrived at my house, I had to pay additional shipping and there was a sticker placed on it by USPS that they had inspected the package contents. They placed an instruction sheet explaining what qualifies for Media Mail.
Summary: Printer arrived in good condition, and was like new. The box had never even been opened. I have an OLD computer running Windows Works (which I love), and it won't drive new printers on today's market. Many thanks, to whomever saved this Deskjet 3820 --- for me.
Summary: I needed a replacement for my old printer, as I am still working with my Windows 95 computer. The HP3820 that I purchased from Amazon.com exactly replaces the HP 3820 that stopped working after 12 years.
Summary: HP Deskjet 3820 Printer The HP3820 inkjet printer is designed for the average user at home or office. It comes in a two_tone beige and grayish_blue case like other HP printers. It connects to a computer with either an IEEE 1284 parallel cable (Windows 95) or a USB cable (Windows 98, Me, 2000, XP).
Summary: I got this new 8 years ago. It served me as a student teacher and then a teacher. It only encountered problems when I tried to use recycled cartridges and then ultimately I had given up on anything half decent coming out of it when I bought a new pc that was not on Windows 2000.
