Designjet 1050c Plus

 

From pen plotters to laser and inkjet printers, Hewlett-Packard has consistently set the bar, and it continues to serve the design and engineering communities well with superior large-format printers.

For printing line drawings and photorealistic renderings, handling one sheet at a time or running all night unattended, the Designjet 1050c Plus is a versatile and capable performer.

HP Deskjet 1050A

 

HP's Deskjet 1050A is a basic all-in-one at an entry-level price.

Not black, Cartridge recycling program, Quick power-up

Mediocre speed, External power supply, Tri-colour cartridge can be wasteful

HP Deskjet 1050A review

 

It's difficult to believe that you can create an all-in-one model with printing, scanning and copying features for just £30, but that's exactly what HP has managed with the supremely cheap Deskjet 1050A. So just how well does it perform and does it...

Rock bottom price tag; Affordable running costs; Sleek design; Great graphics print quality.

Text print quality could be better; Single colour ink cartridge.

HP's Deskjet 1050A 1050A is a cheap and cheerful multifunction printer that's ideal for those who don’t have heavy printing demands.

HP Deskjet 1050

 

Can you really get a functional all-in-one printer for £30? It's sitting here on our test bench, so the answer appears to be 'yes'.

It's quite exceptional to get an all-in-one printer for £30 and equally out of the ordinary to have one that produces very acceptable print quality at a fair speed and without emptying your pocket through exorbitant ink costs. There's very little on...
