Summary: I bought this printer for college and it does well for printing papers. Sometimes it's a little slow, especially when printing pictures, but the quality is good. The only thing I really dislike about it is that it can't do borderless printing- my photos never fill the whole sheet so I can't frame them because of the white borders. If you plan on printing photos to frame, this probably isn't the printer for you. However, it's perfect for printing basic documents and such.
This printer did fine - but I had to get a different model.

Summary: I purchased this printer in summer of 2012. Hookup was easy. Printing was fine. The main complaint I have about it is it will NOT accept a thicker paper; especially the nice colored cardstock paper used for making cards & such. It had a hard time feeding it through and if it did feed through, it only went part way and printed all words jumbled together & smeared.
Summary: I'm a little surprised by the negative reviews. I've had one of these HP 2050 all-in-ones for about 2 years now and it's been perfect. There haven't been any problems with its operation. Everything works fine. It has a number of choices for resolution from 75 dpi all the way up to 1200 dpi and also a number of choices for format of the output file (jpeg, pdf, tiff). I just haven't had problems I've seen in other reviews (paper feed, ink usage, etc.).
Summary: The printer works really well. There was ink included which is always nice. But I had to buy a printer cord which was an extra $20, would of been nice to know if I was getting the cord or not.
Summary: i found the printer easy to use. i purchase the 3 in one, for copy,scanning and fax. This printer works well on single printing jobs but multiple printing is slow and must be done individualy.
Summary: I bought this printer yesterday at walmart, despite all the bad reviews i read in different sites. Actually i was terrified, praying to God for this not to be a piece of crap. First of all i rated it 4 stars because its my first printer. Second i bought it because of an emergency. But before making up my mind, i compared all the prices of all kinds of inks of different brands and the cheapest was this one.
