Buy stock in hp if you buy it. The dividends will help cover the cost of ink.

Nevadafighter1971, Amazon

  • Summary: Avoid unless you have a large budget for ink. It will not let you do draft printing like the older hp printers to save on ink. It has a setting for fast draft, but that does not use less ink. The worst part is that it will not use refilled cartridges.

Complete Rip-off!

Thomas Andreasson, Amazon
14 May 2014
  • Summary: According to specs for the ink an XL cartridge should last 330 pages. I would be lucky if i get 30... This printer has been a humiliating experience. I have been screwed by HP. Will not use it again. Regret I bought it even if I can use it for sketchy scans. DON`T BUY IT!!

Never, ever buy an HP printer

Henry E. Scott "A fan...", Amazon
21 March 2014
  • Summary: They are designed to rip you off. You can't insert a new cartridge without a tedious alignment process that requires lots of ink and paper (they make their real money from ink). If you only intend to use your printer for B&W printing, you still must install a color cartridge (they make their real...

JUST DON'T

  • Summary: When you make your first color print you'll be elated. it really does make nice prints. Problem is, what you save in the hardware you spend a whole lot more in INK!!! Seriously, I don't know what is wrong with it but the black runs out after just a few copies.

Scanner only comments

NeedVacation, Amazon
29 December 2013
  • Summary: Got this as a hand me down. Scanner is slow and noisy. Had to download other software to create pdf files of a decent size. HP driver generated files are over 10x as large. Have not tried the printer yet.

Piece of junk

David Cockrum "Audiophile", Amazon
19 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this printer because it was cheap. The old saying that you get what you pay for has never had a better application that this HP Deskjet 2050. This thing is the most sorry piece of junk ever.

This printer will make you pull your hair out and want to kill someone

00ToothPick, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: If you saw the rating on this printer and read the reviews then there's not really much else to say, I bought this printer about 2 years ago for about $50 from Wal-Mart and have had nothing but problems ever since, I rarely ever print stuff usually only like a few pages every couple of months and I...

It's Designed To Fail

KennyScot, Amazon
16 August 2013
  • Summary: This printer uses MASSIVE amounts of ink and the cartridges cost a fortune! DO NOT BUY! Also, it seems that if you try and re-fill the ink cartridge, it instantly rejects the re-filled cartridge.
