Summary: I had to grade on a curve here or else it would be lower. HP forces you to take the <explicative>-ware to load the drivers but so does everybody else pretty much. There is a workaround though if you have the driver CD: put it in and load the driver through your device manager search function.

Summary: It is not really that good. The quality of the print looks cheap and it makes a LOT of noise. In fact, a desk printer at my office that is about 7 years old prints work sheets in much better quality. I do not recommend this product.
Summary: Good printer but dont get it if you use your printer regularly. The ink costs will kill you. And NO, you cannot refill the cartridges. They have a chip that senses when the cartridge is empty and will not reset upon refill.
Summary: I bought this printer at a Black Friday sale in 2011 for $25. It worked ok, although it always seems to jam or not work at first signal to the printer wireless. Usually I would have to go and turn the printer off, then let it recycle back on, then it would print wirelessly fine. However, the fact that I had to get up often to go turn it off completely defeated the purpose of having a wireless printer.
Summary: Hewlett Packard 3050A Wireless All-in-One Color Photo Printer This was a good printer for one year. One month after the warranty has expired, I am unable to use it because I have a false "paper jam." Over the phone assistance will cost me $25. So, I am going to replace it with another brand.
Summary: Like most inkjet printers, it gobbles up ink, and the cartridges cost a fortune. It has the colors all in one cartridge, so if one goes out the whole thing needs to be replaced. The rollers always leave scuff marks on heavier card-stock (such as greeting card paper), which really makes for an unprofessional appearance. But, the most annoying thing about this printer is that it will not print on the whole page!
Summary: I have had this printer for a while, it is not a bad printer for home use, after all I was not expecting much but I certainly expected to have the ability to set my printer paper size. It just boggles my mind that in 2010 HP will put out a printer and not offer this simple feature and till today refuse to provide any solution to it. I have kept the printer because I like the size and profile and I am too lazy to pack the darn thing back into its box and send it back.
Summary: I was excited to have found a printer at this price, and even expected it to be less then perfect because it was "used" but it came with a broken paper tray, directions for a different HP printer and while it says its an all in one printer, the scanner couldn't scan a full page at one time. This thing is small. Wish I had done more research and shopped around more.
Summary: I liked the printer/scanner/copier while it worked for me. Less than a year after purchasing it, the power went out, and I couldn't fix it. The adaptor is still good but I need a printer. HP is pretty aggressive with updates & software they want to load up on your computer. And whenever you put some ink in it wants to recalibrate. You must go along with this program or you'll never get to do what you want to do.
Summary: This printer is cheap, and you can tell. It does not print duplex (okay) has a paper feed which holds about fifty pages at a time and registers as empty when it's half full, and a paper output tray that spills paper all over the floor. The scanner works well. Would not recommend if you are looking primarily for a printer, rather than a scanner.
