Alright, now let's go into details.
10 differences we consider important:
  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 supports double-side printing, but HP OfficeJet 3830 does not.
    Automatic duplex printing (also known as two-sided printing) refers to a printer's ability to print on both sides of the paper, without having to manually flip it.
  • HP OfficeJet 3830 has a 2.2'' Monochrome Touch LCD Display, HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 has a 2.6'' Color Touch LCD Display.
    LCD status displays are very useful. Your printer can tell you if ink is low or paper is jammed.Touchscreen displays give you significant control over your printer, often allowing you to send emails or create PDFs from scanned files.
  • HP OfficeJet 3830 is quieter.
    When printing, HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 has a loudness of 63 dB (decibels), while HP OfficeJet 3830 measures at 55 dB.
    How loud is that? We made a decibel chart for you to reference.
  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 prints faster in black-and-white (22 vs 8 PPM)
    In black-and-white, HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 prints at 22 pages per minute (PPM). HP OfficeJet 3830 measures at 8 PPM.
    HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 would take about 04:33 to print 100 pages, HP OfficeJet 3830 would take 12:30.
  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 prints faster in color (18 vs 6 PPM)
    In color, HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 prints at 18 pages per minute (PPM). HP OfficeJet 3830 measures at 6 PPM.
    HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 would take about 05:33 to print 100 pages, HP OfficeJet 3830 would take 16:40.
  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 takes less time to print the first page in black (9s vs 14s)
    This initialization is period is called 'First page out' time; it's 14 seconds for HP OfficeJet 3830 and 9 seconds for HP OfficeJet Pro 8710. This makes HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 5 seconds faster at printing first page in black than HP OfficeJet 3830.
  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 takes less time to print the first page in color (10s vs 17s)
    First page out time is 10 seconds for HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 and 17 seconds for HP OfficeJet 3830 (in color). This makes HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 7 seconds faster at printing first page in color than HP OfficeJet 3830.
  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 can scan/copy a stack of up to 50 pages, while HP OfficeJet 3830 can only go up to 35.
    This feature is known as 'ADF Capacity' - and is literally a physical limitaion of the ADF paper input tray.
  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 can send scans to email, while HP OfficeJet 3830 can't.
    This refers to the printer's ability to send a scan directly to an email recepient without having to use a computer.
  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 can combine scans into searchable PDFs, HP OfficeJet 3830 can only combine scans to non-searchable PDFs.
    This is a very important feature for those who plan to scan a lot of multi-page documents. A printer will combine the pages into a single PDF file. So instead of receiving a dozen pictures, you get one PDF. Going a step further, certain printers use embedded OCR Software (convert image to text) to create searchable PDFs. This way allows you to do computer wizardry with the resulting scan file, such as copy, paste, search, edit, etc.
9 similarities we think are important to mention:
  • Both printers can print over Wi-Fi
    Printing over Wi-Fi is a very common feature, available even in most budget models.
  • Both printers can print from mobile
    In most cases, if a printer supports wireless printing, it also supports Wi-Fi printing.
  • Both printers have a built-in scanner & copier
    Scan and copy technology have a large hardware overlap. If a printer supports scanning, it will will likely support copying.
  • Both printers can scan/copy custom-sized documents (built-in flatbed scanner).
    Flatbed scanners allow scanning documents one by one. Unlike ADF scanners, you can only scan one page at a time. However, flatbed scanners allow you to scan custom-sized documents, like passports, drivers licenses, etc. Flatbed scanners also tend to produce higher quality images.
  • Both printers can scan/copy stacks of documents (built-in ADF).
    ADF, or Automatic Document Feeder allows a printer to scan or copy a stack of pages. This feature is so important that even the cheapest printers try to include it. Technically speaking, ADF is not a feature of the printer - it is a feature of the scanner or copier.
  • Both printers support two-sided scanning (duplex ADF scanner).
    A two-sided (duplex) ADF scanner allows scanning a stack of documents on both sides.
  • Both printers produce the same quality black prints (1200 x 1200 DPI)
    Both printers have a maximum black DPI of 1200 x 1200. What is DPI? In short: the number of dots a printer "draws" per inch. Higher DPI means a higher quality print. It's not the easiest thing to understand, so if print quality is very important to you, we suggest reading an article on DPI.
    • 600 x 600 is more than enough DPI to print any kind of documents.
    • Higher DPI takes more ink to print, draining your cartridge/toner faster.
    • Whenever you see 'DPI', it's actually referring to the 'maximum DPI'. Your printer will often choose to lower the DPI where possible to conserve ink.
  • Both printers produce the same quality color prints (4800 x 1200 DPI)
    Both printers have a maximum color DPI of 4800 x 1200.
    • Unless you are a professional photographer, 1200 x 600 DPI will be fine for printing photos.
  • Both printers are energy star qualified.
    Energy Star is a set of standards that aims to reduce energy consumption of various devices. An Energy Star Qualified printer consumes less electricity to operate and is more environmentally friendly.

Scan, Fax, and Photocopy

The four main functions of printers are: printing, scanning, photocopying, and faxing. Either your device will be print only, print/scan/copy, or an all-in-one printer that does printing, scanning, copying, and faxing. Note that scanning and copying almost always come together, since the hardware for these features overlaps significantly. Generally speaking, all-in-one printers are larger, so those with space constraints may find this to be an inconvenience. Additionally, printers with a fax feature are typically more expensive. It would be wise to only consider this feature if you plan to fax often. If not, you’ll be satisfied with a print/scan/copy device.
