Pros: - Has lots of features. - wifi enabled, so no need for messy usb cables. Also supports usb cable if you need. - Can print directly from android or iphone without needing a PC. - Works very well under linux. - scans, cloud printing, copy
Cons: - Ink is costly and they have some kind of protection mechanism where it detects refilled ink (through expiry period of the ink cartridge) and non genuine ink. They do all this via chip embedded on ink cartridge.
Summary: Excellent inexpensive printer if your main interest is in printing documents. Ink life is very good, functionality is great.... utilizing on a Wi-Fi network and it performs much better than my more expensive HP and Canon printers using WiFi.
Awesome Printer great value for the money and WiFi if you can use it, AAA+

Summary: This is a great office type or text printer, it does use ink fast. Picture quality is acceptable for general printing but not for high quality prints which I need. Overall however if you find the ink refurbished you can get both cartridges for under $30 with free shipping so I have to say this is a great printer which I would expect from HP products and which is why I decided on this printer.
Summary: Printer works great. Light weight, user friendly. I purchased because ink price on my previous printer was very expensive. I trust the HP label. Actually prints better than my previous printer.
Summary: Beware..you may get a different model. It may be 3050 but not the model that takes hp #61 ink as advertised with the printer. I got stuck with one that takes hp122 ink..very difficult to find. Response from Micromania...didn't you read the "product information" Well yes I did as I wanted a replacement printer with #61 cartridges. Yes I can return it--for $$ postage at my expense.
