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 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

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...

I don't get all the complaints?

 

Purchased 01/2012

Easy setup (you have to know what you are doing). Prints great with crisp clear color. Wireless works on my iMac 2012, all four of my windows laptops and all 3 of my windows desktops. Ink cartridges are abundant and you only need one color and one...

None.

Save your time and money

 

Why does HP force the alignment process? It uses a lot of ink and never occurs at a convenient time. Why doesn't HP provide a way to turn it off? HP continues to place icons for bloatware all over the desktop. HP continues to force you to use up ink...

Worked for a while. Now prints with gaps in every other or third line. This sits at my 87 year old mother's computer - so it is not getting overly used.

Print heads need cleaning. Supposed to be pretty straight forward. However the machine is stuck in a print alignment loop. Everytime you turn it on or try to print it prints another alignment page. Alignment page is so bad that the scanner does not...

Decent Printer/Scanner

 

Unless your looking to print HD pictures youll probably be happy with it

Got it on sale, prints, scans, has all the normal printer features.

May have just been the paper but photos dont come out very high quality.

Don't buy this printer!

good scanner

Each time you change the cartridge it will automatically print an alignment page, than must be scanned to “align the print head”. The alignment will fail. You will then get an error message that you must clear prior to printing. You will spend to much...

Great Printer

 

I have had the printer for almost a year and it's still going strong. i have the same ink cartridges in it. I do mild printing and a lot of scanning. Over all the printer is worth it.

I connected my computer, cell phone, and kindle to this printer and it work every time. I love the fact that it is wireless

The wireless set up was a pain at first, but after I got it all set up is was much easier the second time around for my other devices.

New egg would not help with return item defective

 

this printer would be great if it worked. WHen I called HP to get it to work because new egg would not help 2 months later when I finally realized it would not work, HP is still giving me run around. "manager" never called me back.
