The American company HP presents a new multifunction printer, the HP DeskJet 3720 , a device with a characteristic peculiarity: the company defines it as the smallest multifunction printer in the world . With measures of 141 x 403 x 177 millimeters, it could go through a sound station before a printer, and this HP saves a lot of space by using a scroll scanner for the copy function, instead of an A4 size glass horizontal as we are used to. In addition, it allows Wi-Fi connection and connection via mobile, compatibility with the main mobile operating systemsand desktop and a print resolution of 1200 dpi. All this 70 euros .
As we mentioned before, this HP Deskjet 3720 is characterized by its small dimensions . The key to achieve this is in the elimination of the scanning tray , then using a scroll scanner , as if it were a fax. The screen has also been reduced, which is not touch , and in it we only visualize the ink levels , connection and possible errors . Actions are carried out through a panel of eight buttons : Cancel, Resume, Information, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Web Services, Color Copy and Black Copy. The printer weighs 2.33 kg and reduces approximately 1 kgrelative to other multifunction printers, which is also a highlight. As for the design purely, in the HP Deskjet 3720 we find a continuous style with the general lines of the brand, which are the white and light blue colors, the curved lines and a matte finish with a smooth texture.
The HP Deskjet 3720 has functions of printing, copying and scanning , in addition to remote printing with both computer and mobile phones or tablets. When carrying out the latter, we can use applications such as HP ePrint, HP Instant Ink, Apple AirPrint, HP All-in-One Printer Remote app or HP Print Service Plugin, among other programs. The software recognizes current Apple and Microsoft operating systems and can recognize older systems up to Mountain Lion in the case of Apple, or Windows Vista in the case of Microsoft. In mobile formats , in addition to iOS and Android, it is compatible with Blackberry, Symbian and all Windows mobile systems.
As for scanning, the software used is the HP Photosmart, which allows scanning in the following formats: bmp, JPG, JPEG, PNG, PDF, txt, rtf and TIFF.

Its monthly printing capacity is 1000 pages , and it does not allow automatic two-sided printing, but must be manual . Allows a maximum resolution of 1200 x 1200 pixels in print in black and 4800 x 1200 pixels in the case of color prints. This last level of resolution can only be achieved, yes, in printing from a computer.
