The HP DeskJet 2755 is an unremarkable printer. It's best suited for family use, as photos are passable enough for a scrapbook, while color accuracy is excellent. However, it's a disappointing choice for students and a bad choice for office use. It has a poor page yield, whether you're printing in black or color, which means you'll have to replace the cartridges often. On the upside, the cartridges are quite affordable. The build quality is disappointing, and those with large hands might struggle to change the ink cartridges. Printing speed is also very slow, regardless of what you're printing. There's a flatbed scanner, which is great if you need to copy old fragile photos, but it lacks an automatic document feeder.
