I’ve been meaning to publish this review several weeks ago but was only able to finish writing it recently. We received this HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 3776 Printer a few weeks before the last school year ended and it actually came at the perfect time.
You see, we homeschool our six-year-old son, Ziggy, and he was in kindergarten this past school year. Because we homeschool, we do a lot of printing at home. I print worksheets for our son to work on, as well as resources I will need in teaching him. Aside from that though, we are also required by our homeschool provider to submit a portfolio of his work during the entire year and that involves a lot of printing.
That said, this printer was very helpful to us in making sure our son excels in his schoolwork especially since our old HP printer, which we’ve had for several years already was already dying on us.

What We Love About the HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 3776 Printer
Now let me tell you the features we love most about the HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 3776 Printer:
Size and Weight
The HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 3776 printer is the world’s smallest all-in-one printer (#WorldsSmallestPrinter). I can’t even tell you how happy I am that this printer is so compact. Our old printer occupies so much space on my work desk. This one occupies significantly less space as it only measures 403 x 451 x 264 mm (W x D x H). Now I have more desk space to actually work in. Yay!
It’s also super lightweight at only 2.33 kg. It’s so lightweight that even Ziggy can carry it on his own.
This petite and powerful inkjet printer provides affordable print, scan, and copy functions to help your child shine in school. It boggles my mind how it can fit all those functions in such a small machine. Our old printer was an all-in-one too but it was so bulky. This all-in-one function was really helpful to me when I was completing my son’s homeschool portfolio because I can easily print photos and worksheets any time, even at the last minute.
I guess the only thing I’m not too keen about this printer is the scan function. While it can help you easily handle scanning using a variety of papers, this one uses a single-page document feeder which will not allow you to scan other things such as I.D. cards, for example. But there’s a work around for that. I just take a photo of the I.D. I need to scan or print, then just print directly from my phone.
I hate wires! Seeing lots of wires connecting from my laptop to my printer to the power outlets drives me nuts. So, I am super happy that the HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 3776 has wireless capability. It’s so convenient because it makes it easier for us moms to print from any mobile device to help our child in their school projects.
The HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 3776 has an accompanying app that you can download on your phone or tablet, making it easy for you to print pictures or documents straight from your gadget. We’ve tried doing this from our phone and it really works great! Take note though that you’ll need to familiarize yourself first with the app so that you can print properly.
We all know that the print quality of all HP printers is really above par. This printer also doesn’t disappoint. We’ve tried printing both in black & white and in color and loved the outcome.
For our Ziggy’s homeschool portfolio, I even had to print 68 pages (on bond paper) full of photos and the print quality was really good.
On a side note, I’ve also tried printing photos on photo paper, as well as on parchment paper, for my crafting needs and I was really satisfied with the outcome as well.
As for the ink, this one uses one black & white cartridge and one colored ink. We’ve had this printer for 4 months now and we haven’t had to replace the black & white ink yet. We’ve only had to replace the colored one once and that is because I did a LOT of colored printing for my son’s homeschool portfolio and for my crafting needs as well.
I love that this printer is so affordable too at only approximately Php 4,000. Not bad for an all-in-one printer, right?
Also, with its low-cost cartridges (Php 420 each only!), the HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 3776 printer is ideal for parents who are looking for a convenient, quality and affordable home printing solution to help their children shine in school. #AffordablePrintScanCopy
Now that a new school year is about to start for most kids in the country, you might need an all-in-one printer to #HelpYourChildShine in school. I recommend checking this one out because it truly helped us end the past school year in flying colors. I have no doubt that the HP DeskJet Ink Advantage 3776 will again help our Ziggy shine this coming school year.
