Save your time and money

James S., Newegg
22 September 2015
  • Summary: Why does HP force the alignment process? It uses a lot of ink and never occurs at a convenient time. Why doesn't HP provide a way to turn it off? HP continues to place icons for bloatware all over the desktop.
  • Pros: Worked for a while. Now prints with gaps in every other or third line. This sits at my 87 year old mother's computer - so it is not getting overly used.
  • Cons: Print heads need cleaning. Supposed to be pretty straight forward. However the machine is stuck in a print alignment loop. Everytime you turn it on or try to print it prints another alignment page. Alignment page is so bad that the scanner does not even see it - so it starts all over again. Follo...

Suits my needs very well..!

M. Millard, Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this printer from an Amazon approved vendor-partner. They shipped it on time as promised. It was a simple no-brainer installation. This printer is not particularly speedy, but my need was for reliablility and low cost. This HP unit afforded me exactly what I wanted. Jim M. Maineville, Ohio

Owned well over 2 years and still going strong.

DJ TOM66, Amazon
1 March 2013
  • Summary: Just wanted to chime in on this HP deskjet 3050. I have owned many printers (and most of them HP) but this little printer, copier, fax machine has surpassed my expectations. I got it new in 2010 at Wal Mart for about $60.00 thinking if it last a year I've got my monies worth so I am still getting my...

Great Printer

Dominic S., Newegg
18 February 2013
  • Summary: I have had the printer for almost a year and it's still going strong. i have the same ink cartridges in it. I do mild printing and a lot of scanning. Over all the printer is worth it.
  • Pros: I connected my computer, cell phone, and kindle to this printer and it work every time. I love the fact that it is wireless
  • Cons: The wireless set up was a pain at first, but after I got it all set up is was much easier the second time around for my other devices.

  • Summary: this printer would be great if it worked. WHen I called HP to get it to work because new egg would not help 2 months later when I finally realized it would not work, HP is still giving me run around. "manager" never called me back.

got no satisfaction

Richard M., Newegg
11 August 2012
  • Summary: set it up as wireless so computer upstairs could print to it but it was so slow on wireless that I could actually could go down and boot up computer and print to USB before wireless was finished, by stopwatch.
  • Pros: works well for the cost of the item, looks nice, does well on ink, no jams so far, color copy looks like original
  • Cons: wireless was really slow, researched problems through HP but got no satisfaction from their tips

Good printer

Anonymous, Newegg
13 July 2012
  • Summary: Even came with the USB cable. HP has come a long way with their printers and printer drivers. I just installed the driver, no software, and was easy, fast and stable. I remember back in the day when HP drivers were terrible and riddled with problems at installation. Not anymore.
  • Pros: Can't go wrong with this all in one printer. Was a bit more expensive when I bought it, but the quality is good, easy to use, wireless is what I wanted to network all my PCs in the house to the printer. Ink is relatively cheap, especially if you buy the refurbished ones. Print quality is good.
  • Cons: none

Gets the job done but clunky and slow

Matthew B., Newegg
2 July 2012
  • Summary: If the price is more than 35 bucks at the time of buying, it's not worth it
  • Pros: It was cheap and it works
  • Cons: * It sounds like an industrial plant processing metal when you attempt to print anything. * Loading in too much paper(20+ sheets) makes the sheets get a crease on the corners. * Opening it up it feels flimsy *WiFi is not the most reliable

Anonymous, Newegg
19 May 2012
  • Summary: Dont bother with the cheap ones.. get a good quality printer. I have a 2nd hand 10 year old laserjet 3100 which is still kicking b.u.t.t..
  • Pros: cheap
  • Cons: The black cartridge was not compatible. Low color quality. after a month of use it started to print one hour after sending the print command. I didn't even bother to trouble shoot.
