What experts liked
Has an impressive feature set, including color printing and WiFi and ethernet connectivity.
- BestReviews
HP’s OfficeJet Pro 8720 is one of the least annoying printers we’ve ever used, thanks to its straightforward setup, reliable Wi-Fi, smooth touchscreen interface, and well-designed software.

Copying performance was Excellent, producing copies very close to the original.
- Consumer Reports
Otherwise, the OfficeJet 8730 is fast, prints well, is better-constructed than most of its competitors, and it comes with a slew of attractive features.

It performs well in most areas, and its large touchscreen control panel was a favorite amongst our testers.

Assisted by the 50-sheet automatic feeder, photocopying was quick and simple, taking 14 seconds to produce a single page, just over a minute for 10 black and white pages and a minute and a half for color.
- Top New Review
What experts didn't like
It's on the higher end of the price spectrum and its design is a bit heavy and bulky.
- BestReviews
The 8720 is also not the most versatile machine when it comes to handling nonstandard printing media.
- New York Times Wirecutter

This machine is noisier than most when printing, and it uses a lot of extra ink in maintenance.
- Consumer Reports
I couldn't get it to print borderless snapshots, though, (according to the specs, it prints edge-to-edge, or borderless, only on A4 and letter-size paper), but I timed the bordered snapshots at 37 seconds, which is close to average among these machines.

Text quality is the Officejet Pro 8720's weak point.
