HP DeskJet All-in-One Printers: Affordable Printers for UK Small Businesses

Harry Stewart
Chock full of nifty features, HP DeskJet All-in-One Printers offer an affordable, hassle-free printing solution ideal for small British businesses. And thanks to its in-built scanner, this compact, streamlined device can also handle all your scanning and copying needs.
Whether you need something for the office or your ever-expanding work-from-home setup, the HP Deskjet All-in-One is among the most cost-efficient printers for business use.
In this post, we’ll cover the benefits of an all-in-one/inkjet, introduce this popular entry-level printer series, and outline why it’s perfect for small UK businesses. Next, we’ll provide a brief HP DeskJet All-in-One Printer review of the top three options in the UK Store.

What is an all-in-one printer?

It’s worth understanding the lingo before we get stuck into the specifics. An all-in-one printer, as the name suggests, is a device with multiple components bundled up into one box.
In most cases, that means you get a printer, scanner, and photocopier. Some all-in-ones throw a fax machine into the mix. However, the fax add-on is becoming rarer as businesses move away from this antiquated telephonic transmission technology.
So why combine these three common components into one device?
  • An all-in-one saves space as you don’t need a separate printer, photocopier and scanner.
  • An all-in-one is cheaper than purchasing all three devices individually.
  • An all-in-one is more convenient as you can perform multiple functions without switching between devices.

What is an inkjet printer?

inkjet printer
An inkjet printer uses a mini jet to propel tiny ink droplets onto a page. These days, most inkjet printers offer both black and colour functionality by incorporating separate black and colour cartridges. The latter cartridge combines cyan, magenta, and yellow to create a broad gamut of vibrant, true-to-life colours.
Inkjet printers are by far the most popular printer types worldwide, both in office and home-use environments. This widespread popularity stems from their low price point. Inkjet printers, such as the DeskJet series, are affordable small business printers, making them a viable investment for companies with modest tech budgets.
The other prevalent printer type is the laser printer, which beams data onto a tiny drum to create static electricity. That static charge allows dry toner to stick onto the desired parts of the page, which is then fused into place by a hot roller.
Sound fancy? It really is. And all this high-tech wizardry makes the laser printer more expensive to purchase. However, compared to an inkjet printer, laser technology offers faster printing speeds and uses far less ink per page (AKA, a higher yield). That enhanced efficiency offers heavy business users better bang for their buck in the long term.

Introducing the HP DeskJet All-in-One Printer

The HP DeskJet is an affordable yet highly functional inkjet printer series aimed at budget-conscious consumers. These days, the vast majority of HP DeskJets feature all-in-one functionality. So what can you expect with an entry-level inkjet printer like the HP DeskJet?
This budget-friendly printer is designed for light use - anywhere up to 100 pages per month. While HP DeskJets are perfect for workers with low printing requirements, they’re not ideal for heavy users.
If you’re churning out large documents daily, you’re better off investing in an extra-efficient, high-yield device. The OfficeJet Pro series, for example, has higher printer speeds, a higher yield, and additional features like an automatic document feeder (ADF) and duplex printing.
Creatives, on the other hand, will prefer a premium printer series with better resolution and colour accuracy, such as the ENVY printer range. Alternatively, if you plan to print large volumes or have multiple workers using one printer, a fast and efficient laser printer, like the LaserJet Pro or LaserJet Enterprise series, would be the smart choice.

The benefits of the HP DeskJet All-in-One Printer for small British businesses

benefits of deskjet printers
The DeskJet All-in-One Printer boasts a broad range of nifty benefits for small businesses in the UK.
Perhaps the most significant selling point is the price. For a minimal investment, you get a reliable all-in-one that gets the job done. Lightweight and compact, the series is designed to slide into cramped spaces. You don’t need a lot of available desk real estate to accommodate an HP DeskJet All-in-One.
While you won’t get the colour accuracy of a premium printer, the HP DeskJet All-in-One offers sufficient quality for everyday use. Expect black and white print resolutions of up to 1200 x 1200 and a maximum of 4800 x 1200 for optimised colour printing. That’s more than enough for printing standard documents, including those with photos.
The HP DeskJet All-in-One Printer is also super user-friendly. A simple-to-follow setup wizard takes mere minutes to get the device going. Intuitive controls make navigating advanced features a breeze, and the HP Smart app lets you print, scan, and copy documents from your tablet or phone.
Moreover, the series incorporates Bluetooth and WiFi to create an easy-to-use, fully wireless solution. No need to hook up your laptop every time you print something. A wireless network also cuts down on cord clutter.
Stocking up on ink is super convenient with HP+. With this paid subscription, the printer automatically detects when you’re running low on ink and orders a replacement cartridge for delivery straight to your door. Most HP DeskJet All-in-One Printers include a no-obligation, six to nine-month trial to HP+. The subscription provides replacement cartridge savings of up to 70%.
The HP DeskJet All-in-One Printer puts sustainability at the forefront. The physical device is partly comprised of recycled components, including salvaged plastics and electronics. And with HP+, users join HP’s Forest Positive initiative, which sees money from every cartridge donated towards reforestation programs. HP has teamed up with WWF to calculate its customers’ collective paper consumption and aims to replenish the world’s forests in equal measure by 2030.

The best HP DeskJets for small businesses

We’re up to speed on inkjets, all-in-ones, and the key HP DeskJet benefits. Now let’s take a quick look at the top three options on the HP UK Store.

HP DeskJet 2720e All-in-One

As an excellent entry-level device, the HP DeskJet 2720e All-in-One offers a high degree of functionality for a rock-bottom price.
DeskJet 2720e
The printer is suitable for everyday office use, with black and white print speeds of 7.5 pages per minute (ppm) and a 1200 x 1200 dots per inch (DPI) resolution. WiFi, Bluetooth and USB connectivity work seamlessly with your tablet, laptop or phone. And with a free six-month subscription to HP+, we’ve got your ink covered.
Whether sending invoices or producing paper documents for in-person meetings, this cost-effective DeskJet delivers.
  • Print speed: up to 7.5 ppm (black) and 5.5 ppm (colour)
  • Two-sided printing: Yes
  • DPI: Black up to 1200 x 1200, colour up to 4800 x 1200
  • HP+: 6 months
  • Works with phone/tablet: Yes
  • Connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth, USB
  • Recommended monthly page volume: 50 to 100 pages

HP DeskJet 2710e All-in-One

There’s not a massive difference between the aforementioned 2720e model and this HP DeskJet 2710e All-in-One. Both offer identical resolutions, printing speeds, all-in-one functionality, and page yields. Much like our previous recommendation, you also get a six-month subscription to HP+ for automated ink deliveries.
DeskJet 2710e
This model doesn’t have Bluetooth connectivity - you’ll need to use WiFi or the USB cable instead. It also comes with a white lid (as opposed to grey), which may better complement your existing workspace.
Whichever model you choose, expect excellent performance for light-use printing at a very reasonable price.
  • Print speed: up to 7.5 ppm (black) and 5.5 ppm (colour)
  • Two-sided printing: Yes
  • DPI: Black up to 1200 x 1200, colour up to 4800 x 1200
  • HP+: 6 months
  • Works with phone/tablet: Yes
  • Connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth, USB
  • Recommended monthly page volume: 50 to 100 pages

HP DeskJet 4130e All-in-One

Spend a few quid more, and you can get the HP DeskJet 4130e All-in-One, a professional-standard printer with a better duty cycle. This model has a recommended monthly page volume of 100 to 300, letting you print more often with a lower risk of errors or jams.
DeskJet 4130e
Another nifty feature is the 35-page auto-feeder, which lets you load a big batch of pages to print in one go. You also get a generous 9-month subscription to HP+ for hassle-free ink refills.
The bottom line? If you expect to print more than 100 pages monthly, grab this printer instead of the previously-mentioned 2700 series.
  • Print speed: 8 ppm (black) and 5.5 ppm (colour)
  • Two-sided printing: Yes
  • DPI: Black up to 1200 x 1200, colour up to 4800 x 1200
  • HP+: 9 months
  • Works with phone/tablet: Yes
  • Connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth, USB
  • Recommended monthly page volume: 100 to 300


The HP DeskJet All-in-One Printer is a cost-effective solution for small British businesses with low printing needs. While it’s unsuitable for pumping out massive documents or heavy daily use, the budget-friendly device is excellent for companies with intermittent paper-use requirements.
And with a fully-functional scanner built into the box, this space-saving design lets you copy documents with ease. USB, wireless and Bluetooth connectivity allows you to hit print without plugging anything in. Plus, as small businesses don’t have the resources to monitor office supplies, the automated HP+ Instant Ink program helps streamline operations.
If your business needs a reliable, budget-friendly printer for light use, revisit our recommendations to identify the most appropriate option. Can’t find what you want? More all-in-one printers are available in the HP UK Store.
