Summary: I've had this for about a year and I use it everyday to print invoices and shipping labels for my small business. Overall I probably print about 150 documents each month. Still prints great, only had about 2 or 3 paper jams in over 12 months and they cleared very easily. My only complaint is that the ink can be a bit expensive if you use a lot of it. It usually runs between $15 and $19 for each cartridge (there are 2) and lasts about a month and a half.
Summary: Really good printer for my basic use. I am a student and print about 10 pages a week. A cartridge of ink (15 dollars for standard capacity or 30 for XL) lasts a semester. I don't have any jamming or paper feeding problems. I've scanned 1 or 2 sheets and they went nicely into my computer and saved them into my notes for class. Can't say enough good things about this printer. I bought it used for 20 dollars and haven't even thought about getting a different printer.
Summary: I bought this item back on Black Friday of 2011 for only $20. I figured for that low amount of money, this would be a good deal. Fortunately, it turned out to be just that. Before buying this, I was looking for a decent 3-in-1 printer that didn't cost too much. The previous 3-in-1 I had was such a piece of junk (constant paper jams, system telling me it was out of ink when I had just inserted a new ink cartridge, etc) that I had to get rid of it.
Summary: Recently purchased online at Walmart for $24, cuz significantly cheaper than buying new ink cartridges. Performs as advertised, no problems so far. Careful to install correctly. Assume it's not intended for heavy use, and don't see how you can beat it for the price for general home needs.
Summary: This printer works every time and doesn't give me any trouble. My only complaint is how just touching the top button makes a copy. I have to turn this off whenever I am not using it because my cat is constantly walking over it and copying absolutely nothing and setting it off. Not much of a complaint though. I would definitely recommend this printer.
Summary: I've got the reviewer below me beat: I bought this printer last Black Friday at WM for $20 (less than the price of one ink cartridge for my old printer!). Out of the box, there is no USB cable included (you need a USB 2.0 cable - the one with a flat head on one side and a square one on the other) so I had to go out and buy one especially for it. That didn't inspire confidence, but Amazon does have the cables for less than five bucks.
Excerpt: Introduction:- The Hewlett Packard 1050A J410G printer that I am reviewing here was actually an emergency purchase after our old Epson printer give up the ghost and I needed to print off a CV for a job application. It just so happened that I spotted this HP printer for sale in our local supermarket for just £30 on my way to trawl around the shops for a reasonably priced basic printer.
Summary: Just bought this HP 1050 printer/scanner because it was cheap and I was wanting a replacement our worn out and bulky HP 7410. We now use it for home and our son uses it for his education needs, we can copy & scan & print, good value for money.
Excerpt: My last printer broke and I exchanged it in Argos for this HP 1050 All In one. Before I got this particular one I investigated the price of ink cartridges and being around £18 for the black and tri colour pack in Argos they seemed cheap enough, cheaper still on Amazon. The price of the printer in Argos last year was £29 a quick look on Amazon has them at a rather expensive £75 it's definitely not worth that price.
