HP Deskjet 3000


One step up from HP's entry-level inkjet, the LCD screen and wireless connection increases this single-function printer's overall usefulness.

Simple wireless setup, Well used soft keys, Good speed for class

Low paper capacity, Large footprint when printing, No photo card sockets

HP Deskjet 3000 review


Retailing at around £55, the HP Deskjet 3000 is one of the cheapest inkjet photo printers around. As befits that low price, you don't get anything besides printing facilities (no scanning or copying).

The HP Deskjet 3000 has a number of nice features that would appear to put it ahead of other single-function photo printers. However, despite the low price, wireless connectivity and versatile user interface, the HP Deskjet 3000 does fall down on speed...

love it


The value of this printer is the cost of the Cartridges - they are very reasonable and if you are a occasional printer then they will last a bit..

its a basic printer that works well

Just Absolute garbage.


You get what you pay for. I suppose if you wanted to use this as a WIRED printer it may be just the ticket for you. But why bother buying if you want wireless.

Are you kidding me

Worked well for several months ; By well I mean, it worked sporadically. It needed to be uninstalled and re-installed frequently in order for the printer to recognize the network. Then, it would work just dandy. However, don't use it for a few days?...

HP Deskjet 3000 Printer


This is the worst printer I've ever owned, and I've owned quite a few. Something as simple as loading paper is a frustrating struggle, paper jams happen as often as not, and the quality is far from "quality." I would not recommend this product - not...

HP Deskjet 3000 Printer


I always owned nothing but HP printers and have had great luck with them. I've always felt that I received more than my money's worh out of them. I'd recommend this to anyone that would like a wireless printer.
