HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One

 

Although its print quality is limited by a dual-ink cartridge bay, the $80 HP Deskjet 3050A is built for productivity with wireless connectivity and mobile printing by way of HP smartphone apps and the company's ePrint remote printing service that lets...

The HP Deskjet 3050A features a refreshing design and its wireless Web connectivity lets you print in the cloud with HP ePrint technology.

The printer lacks an Ethernet port for wired networking and its dual ink cartridge bay is a money sink if you print a high volume of photos and color documents.

The HP Deskjet 3050A All-in-One printer marries an attractive design with the latest cloud printing technology in a multifunction device that works for small offices that don't need to print a lot of full-color photos.

HP Deskjet 3050

 

The HP Deskjet 3050 is an entry-level printer with a slightly better than entry-level performance.

Decent color performance.; Can scan and copy

CMY cartridges are wasteful.; Somewhat low detail performance

If you’re looking for an affordable pickup of a printer that can perform the basic office functions and isn’t terrible at printing photos, the Deskjet 3050 is certainly worth a look. With good color accuracy, and the ability to fulfill several office...

HP Deskjet 3050A

 

HP's £30 Deskjet 3050A is a real bargain of an all-in-one.

Fast copies ; Easy wireless setup ; High quality draft print saves ink

Awkward cartridge loading ; High consumable costs ; External power supply

Expert review by:

HP Deskjet 3050

 

A budget all-in-one inkjet with a mono LCD for menu display and a cheap and cheerful print engine, which is only adequate.

Straightforward WPS wireless setup support ; Easy, two-cartridge maintenance ; Fast colour copies

Below average plain paper print quality ; Tri-colour cartridge can be wasteful ; External power supply

The two cartridges, black and tri-colour, slide in and clip up into their respective holders and software for Windows or OS X installs from the supplied CD. There's a copy of HP's Photo Creations available for download, too, which gives you basic photo...

HP Deskjet 3050A review

 

At this price, HP's Deskjet 3050A is one of the cheapest MFPs we've ever seen. Despite its budget leanings, it has integrated Wi-Fi, a square 5cm mono LCD screen, automatic print head alignment and support for HP's ePrint, which means you can send...

HP's little Deskjet is cheap and cheerful - great for occasional home document printing, but not up to regular and intensive scanning or printing

HP - Deskjet 3050

 

The Deskjet 3050 is a small-format, entry-level all-in-one intended for the home market. One step up from the cheaper DeskJet 1050, it includes a mono LCD display with three soft buttons beside it that are used ...

This is a useful little all-in-one with a good feature set. It ticks most of the boxes, except arguably the most important one. Print quality, particularly of black text on plain paper, is below what HP printers normally produce - and even below that...

"A very good printer."

 

I had a canon pixma printer before i bought this. Canon pixma printer had very bad linux support. Especially color prints under linux are horrible. This one works awesome in linux. It works in linux as good as it works in windows. Canon one was only a...

- Has lots of features.

- Ink is costly and they have some kind of protection mechanism where it detects refilled ink (through expiry period of the ink cartridge) and non genuine ink. They do all this via chip embedded on ink cartridge.

"Don't waste your money like I did"

 

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".

Cheap printer
