Does the job, but nothing special and far better printers out there

Summary: This printer is probably ideal for someone who prints mostly documents on an occasional basis. If you do a lot of printing, the ink costs will soon mount up as the supplied black and colour ink cartridges will run out pretty quickly.
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.
Pros: A Relaible Home Printer
Cons: Combined coloured inks, no data cable supplied .
Summary: For the price of this printer it works very well. Easy to install. Had a bit of trouble getting it delivered as the parcel did not have my house number on it so it went back to the factory and I had to chase so took several weeks.
Summary: This is an acceptable basic printer that is suitable for simple school and study printing. However, colour printing is quite slow in comparison with acceptable black & white printing speed, but it is a basic pinter suitable for basic tasks.
Excerpt: . I paid just £17 for mine direct from the Hewlett Packard website, considering the ink alone is worth that I didn't hesitate as I had no printer at the time and my Dad's had just broken, nothing to do with me mind lol.
