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.
Summary: Short version: Don't buy an HP printer. There are many other better options with at least some semblance of technical support. Even their own in-home support technician told me "I wouldn't buy a Deskjet 3520". Long version: I bought a Deskjet 3050A in March 2012. It worked right out of the box.....for about one day. I called HP's "tech support", whose first suggestion was to unplug the "printer" for 30 seconds, plug it back in, then it should work. And it did....
Summary: Honestly, words cannot express how much I HATE this product. I had an HP printer that was a workhorse before and somehow believed that this product would live up. This thing errors our ALL the time and refuses to print. It tells you to align -- you align, it prints ONE page and then goes into the same thing all over again. The ink cartridges dry up faster than puddle in the Sahara.
Summary: I was excited to get a wireless printer for all the computers in our home but found this to be a terrible choice. 1) The wireless is constantly dropping. We have nothing that is causing interference (that we can find) and a typical wireless network configuration 2) After 6 months it is already having issues feeding paper 3) When printing envelopes I get maybe 1/3 to print properly and the others are mis-aligned and have to be thrown out.
Poor service from vendor.Promised to correct problem,but he hasn't.

Summary: Never have been to use the printer.Bought it as a "wireless" model for my IPad .Wouldn't interface with my IPad . Talked to Mark,the vendor.He said I had the wrong model for my IPad,but that he would have the correct one for my use in a week.He said he would send me the correct one for $20 and that I didn't need to return the original one.Sounded too good to be true.
Summary: Every time I go to print, I get the "Waiting for printer to become available" message. Every day I have to turn my printer off and on again in order to get it to print. If I need to print more than once that day, I can usually get it to work by "waking" the printer up by touching one of the buttons, but this doesn't work if it's been asleep for more than a couple hours. In fact, I can't even turn it off using the power button - I have to pull the power cord in the back.
Summary: My printer is the HP Deskjet 3050 610 Series.When I went to Windows 7 I had to get a new printer. I purchased this one and find that everytime I want to print, I have to turn the printer off and then turn it on again. I cannot scan because the scanner refuses to be activated. I finally get the scanner to work and then it just doesn't anymore. I haven't been able to activate the printer anymore so I don't scan.
Summary: I bought this from Walmart for $50 - a great price if it worked. I got it so my daughter could print her school stuff to my printer from her bedroom without having to email it to me in my office. But I have to stand there and feed one sheet at a time otherwise there's approximately a 75% chance that the paper will misfeed and jam. Even so there's still about a 20% chance of it jamming. I just went through 8 pages to print a 3 page report. Unbelievable.
Summary: I'll just keep this short. I've had a lot of issues with this printer. I kept losing my internet signal on it almost everyday, which means you have to keep putting the install disc back in and hooking the USB back up to it over and over again. The ink doesn't last long at all, maybe a month?
