This printer did fine - but I had to get a different model.
16 March 2013
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.
