I needed a wireless printer to make life a tad easier and I bought an HP Deskjet 3050. It’s RRP is £100 but I paid half price at £55. The one thing I did not take into account was that although I thought I wanted a basic printer, I didn’t!

So let me start with the Pros:-

  • Prints Fast
  • You can make copies
  • You can scan
  • It has wireless
  • It is easy to set up
  • You can get 2 sizes of inks – Black 190 or 480 / Colour 165 or 330 pages per cartridge
  • You only need 2 sets of ink – a black and a colour cartridge
  • Inks are cheap costing between £10-£15 each
  • You can get compatible inks for HP
  • Printing from pc to printer is decent quality

Cons

  • It does not do borderless printing, which I think is important for photos
  • You cannot properly centre the photos so the border is uneven
  • The quality of a copied photo is miserable
  • There is no preview pane
  • You do not have quality choices for scanning or copying

Summary

If you want cheap and good prints except for “photo” copies and are ok with bordered photos, then it is a good printer… otherwise sorry you need to spend a tad more!
