In the absence of other colleagues, when I work from home, the HP Officejet Pro 8035 is the best work wife I could hope for: helpful, beautiful and good at its job.
The Officejet Pro 8035 is an inkjet printer that can produce black and white documents at a print speed of 20 ppm (pages-per-minute). When printing color content, it churns out pages at 10 ppm. It’s a breeze to set up and print using a Mac, iPhone, Windows PC or Android device, thanks to how easy the HP Smart app is to use.
This printer produces solid quality monochrome and color prints on regular paper and heavy stock paper. Of all the printers in this guide, the Officejet Pro 8035 printed the best color photos on glossy photo paper, making it useful as a photo printer for business or school. The photos it printed were clear, had excellent color fidelity, and weren’t too light or too dark.
For scanning, it can hold up to 35-sheets of paper in its auto document feeder and can scan up to legal (8.5×14) size documents and photos from the feeder. If you don’t want to print your scans, they can be saved as files on your computer or sent to a USB flash drive. As for the latter, whatever media you’re scanning will be saved as a photo by default Changing the settings of the Officejet Pro 8035 so that text documents are saved in a more reader-friendly format is a simple process.
If a printer’s ink cartridges are misaligned, images and text may print at an angle. A misalignment can occur after completing a large print job or if your ink cartridge head is dirty. The Officejet Pro 8035 uses a scanner to check the printer cartridge alignment to ensure that its cartridges are straight and narrow. When the printer alignment page prints out, you simply place it in the scanner and press Continue.
The Officejet Pro 8035 then scans the alignment page and checks the alignment on your behalf. What’s more, I found it relatively quiet (for a printer) and liked how easy it was to install and move. Ink cartridge.
Despite all the things to love about this printer, it’s not without its flaws. It’s annoying that the HP Smart app keeps nagging me to set up an HP account, especially since an account isn’t required to use the app or the printer. Additionally, the paper tray is a little on the flimsy side.
