Summary: I have bought 2 all in one hp printers from Walmart over the last 2 years. Each costed around 30 dollars and have lasted me about a year. Compared to paying twice the price for cartridges for the dell printer, I guess they really did pay for themselves in that respect. However, I would just as soon pay more and have a printer last for 5 or more years, maybe it's too much too ask?
Summary: I bought my 1050 from Target on clearance for $35, I can see why, since January I've gone through two. Like everyone else said, They just stop feeding paper correctly. The scanner is crap too. It leaves dark spots around the top corners, Even if you weight down the lid it only lightens them a little.
Summary: I bought this for $20 during 2010 Black Friday sale. I had been without a printer for months and couldn't pass this up. It felt and acted cheaply, but since I rarely print and just needed a home printer/scanner for personal use when I needed it, this would do. Worked fine for about a year, tho I don't recommend installing the software, I didn't and got no hassles. I will say I got at least a year and change out of it, but you have to be VERY CAREFUL with paper.
Summary: This printer seems to work alright but after installing it I see that HP has fixed it so that you cannot custom control the darkness/lightness of the ink -- and their "draft" setting is pretty much of a joke -- it is very nearly as dark as the regular setting. If you print a lot - esp if you sell on the internet and print a lot of postage this is probably not the printer for you.
Summary: We bought this printer 6 months ago and within the first three weeks of light printing the ink ran out. We replaced the cartridge with one that is about half the cost of the printer and the same thing happened. We tried 'refilling' the cartrage but it did not work that great. The printer may seem cheap, but it will cost allot to run (+/- £15 per month on ink).
Summary: I couldn't decide between this model or the one up from it but think I chose right. The printer is easy to set up and install and is perfect for a home printer and scanner. The paper tray folds up so it looks tidy when not in use. Please remember to order the USB lead if you need one as there is not one in the box!
Summary: Ordered this printer to replace a photosmart printer which served me well for years. I needed to print 80gsm A4 paper and 120gsm A5 card, so figured if it managed that then £30 wasn't too bad. Unfortunately, printing performance is poor. It randomly appears to create a smudged line on some prints, regardless of cleaning - this was on the very first sheet I printed.
HP Deskjet 1050 All-in-One - rápida pero "antieconómica"
23 February 2014
Excerpt: En mi calidad de usuario y como servicio tecnico de pcs e impresoras, he tenido ciertos problemas con esta impresora; pero primero hablemos de sus bondades: imprime rápido, es muy cómoda y por su clase (multifuncional) facilita las tareas en casa, además de imprimir en una muy buena calidad.
Pros: Muy buena calidad de impresion, rápida y cómoda por ser multifuncional facilita las tareas .
Cons: Los cartuchos no duran mucho y son costosos no trabajan en climas calurosos, chorea la tinta .
Summary: Habe den Drucker als Sonderangebot für 40Euro gekauft und bin mit der Leistung nicht zufrieden. 1. Kein Kabel in der Bestellung enthalten 2. langsames drucken 3. hoher Tintenverbrauch 4. teure Patronen 5. Einstellungen kompliziert (mal druckt er bei mehreren Seiten die letzten zu erst, mal fängt er vorne an) Fazit: Nichts für Studenten oder Leute die aus anderen Gründen viel drucken müssen, für Gelegenheitsdrucker okay
