An OK inexpensive all in one

HerkyJerky, Amazon
16 February 2012
  • Summary: Its a basic no frills all in one thats has OK speed, OK print quality. Its a bit noisy (not the actual printing but more the feeding) which does give a bit of a "cheap" feel but thats alright. I've had no issues with wifi connection and haven't tried USB.

Doesn't print to custom paper sizes

Jon, Amazon
20 January 2012
  • Summary: My star-rating is neutral because I didn't really give this printer much chance. I ordered it to print to a non-standard paper size, and much to my chagrin, it does not support custom paper sizes.

Caddy COST

THANKS A LOT !, Amazon
5 January 2012
  • Summary: You charged me as much to ship the printer (I HAVE PRIME) as the printer COST !!!!!! You did this without giving me a chance to cancel and make another choice--This is not normal--Normally I have a CHOICE to avoid getting ripped off !! I'll never buy anything of serious value from AMAZON again !

Can be a bargin

Mt A., Newegg
2 December 2011
  • Summary: Black Friday. $25 @ BB. That's the only reason I bought another HP. The two (included) ink cartridges are worth more than I paid for the whole machine. Since this is a back-up printer for the infrequently used secondary PCs in the house, the minuscule ink cartridges will probably last until next...
  • Pros: Beautiful piano black finish that might be a perfect match to many PCs made in the last few years. Very quiet operation. Extremely simple Win7 set-up on old 'g' wireless network (d-link DI-624) without any security (rural area). Covers all computers in a 1500ft house. Print quality on plain paper...
  • Cons: Included software disc is loaded with (insert profane word). The most minimal install still requires 15 minutes of deleting and restarting to remove HP advertising and Bing browser search (WT F, I thought I bought a printer but there seams to be enough spamware for a whole PC. Typical HP). The pr...

First Impression

Naomi D., Newegg
1 December 2011
  • Summary: Cartridges are kind of small, naturally somehow HP needs to recover the low price for the printer. Sounds like the ink heads are cleaned each time the printer is switched on, even if just used to scan images, using up ink unnecessarily.
  • Pros: Beautiful piece of hardware for the money, prints very clearly and works as a scanner too. Setup using the included LCD screen is easy. USB cable included (did not use wireless)
  • Cons: On arrival, plastic slider to adjust width on input paper tray was broken, found loose in the box. Not big enough an issue to send the printer back considering its low price, but annoying for a new device (subtracted 2 eggs)

Lisette Baxter, Amazon

Good printer for the price

D. Kaiser, Amazon
28 June 2011
  • Summary: I have had two of these, one I tried out first, which worked fine, and a second one for my wife's home office. This model replaced my HP 850, which stopped working every time a cartridge ran out of ink. Needing four ink cartridges, the 850 was very expensive to use.

You get what you pay for

drebbles, Amazon
28 June 2011
  • Summary: The HP Desk Jet 3050 all-in-one is not only a printer but it scans and makes copies (black and white or color). It has wireless printing so you can print from any room in your house without using cables. You can make up to 10 copies at a time.

A Functional Budget Printer

Garrett Denney, Amazon
28 June 2011
  • Summary: The Deskjet 3050 copies, prints, and scans as advertised - but don't expect the speed or quality of higher priced printers. I bought this printer primarily because of the affordable price point.

All Things to All People

Winter, Amazon
27 June 2011
  • Summary: The printer industry is in a tough position these days: if you're the average consumer, most of us has several things we want out of a printer--photos, wi-fi, smart media--and each of us has our own specific needs.
