Most printers conform to one of a few basic overall shapes. The OfficeJet Pro 7720 falls into the “generally rectangular” camp, though there’s nothing wrong with that; it’s a functional design for sure. The printer is roughly 22 ½ inches long, 12 ½ inches wide, and 12 inches tall. The printer has a somewhat sandwiched color scheme going on, with a dark grey middle sandwiched between the lighter colored top tray and bottom. The paper tray sticks out by a few inches in the center of the front of the printer, and the lid has raised sections for the copy/scan paper feed, but the remaining printer body is a relatively large rectangle.
The large area to the right of the touchscreen opens up allowing access to the ink cartridges. Each cartridge is color coded and the area where it should be installed has a corresponding colored mark to make installation easy. The top tray includes the paper-feed and return trays for scanning, faxing, and copying. The tray opens to reveal the scanner surface glass below.
The back of the printer has a large covering that opens to allow access to the paper feed. Several of the rollers are easily removed which should allow for most paper jams to be cleared out quickly and easily. The front paper tray can be easily removed, and holds up to 250 sheets of paper. I mentioned that this is a wide-format printer, so it can support paper sizes up to A3. The top paper feed can hold up to 35 sheets of paper.
Printed or copied paper is pulled from the tray and printed materials will exit into the output tray just above the paper tray. A built in output tray extension can be extended to prevent printed paper from flinging out of the printer onto the floor (which it will happily do when the extension is retracted). The extension can be stowed when not in use, but based on how the output tray is positioned and depending on where you’re putting the OfficeJet Pro 7720 I’d likely recommend using the output tray extension when the printer is in use.
