Verified Purchase
I have been a Cannon Inkjet printer user for the last 10 years. For my light duty needs they performed fine until the last two purchases. The last two printers failed a couple of months after the warranty expired. That was the last straw with Cannon.

I have not looked into the line of HP DeskJet printers for more than a decade. I was very pleasantly surprised by the selection and prices. After reading as many reviews from every online source I could fine, it appeared that the recently discontinued HP DeskJet 3050 had good reviews and the new HP DeskJet 3050A model was starting to get good reviews also. After using my new printer for a while, I love it.

I was a little worried about setting up the wireless access part but the process could not have been any easier. In fact, the directions to set everything up was so short and simple, I thought HP forgot to include the full directions. But I followed the steps and Bingo; the printer was online and was working.

The printer has a small footprint, is quiet and it prints fast and with very good quality. The scanner works well but is a little slow scanning at higher DPI.

I do have one instillation note I wish to pass on...

My system is a HP notebook, Windows 7 64-bit, AMD processor, ATI discreet graphics, 4 GB RAM and it is wirelessly connected to my DSL modem. Even though the printer will start to work after you follow the steps to set it up, I had to restart my notebook after all of the drivers and software was installed to get full functionality. The restart step was not covered in the directions and not suggested during the installation of the software. However, since completing the installation, the printer has always connected to the network and has never dropped the connection.

I was looking for a reasonably priced printer that could also scan & copy but one that was NOT a L*xmark because I had given up on that brand. I've always been a fan of HP so I decided to give this one a shot.

Right out of the box, it looked great. Not too big/bulky but big enough to handle a standard sized sheet of paper for both printing and scanning.

The set up: Simple. I gave the box to my 13 year old and said "Ok, take this, install it on our network and make sure everyone in the house can print to it" It took him about 15 minutes to install the printer to our home network through our router and then fix it so seven of us with varying types of computers (Dell, HP, Toshiba, Acer, Asus) were connected and able to send and complete a print job from our various machines. In the past, we've not had a lot of luck getting wireless printers to work in our house so this was a huge bonus.

I was also able to download an app to my android phone and print documents from my phone wirelessly, which is a neat feature as well.

The lid works the same as any home copier/scanner so it was no problem to scan in a magazine, page from a book or a photo. The entire process was very simple which is a nice change from my previous experience with scanning. The images came out exactly as I had hope and look great online and I was able to save them in several different formats and it comes with a software that has basic editing features which is simple to use as well.

The cartridges are about the same price as competitors refills, maybe a little cheaper but seem to last longer (this is from my previous experience with an HP printer).

Bought it at Walmart because I needed it today (sorry, Amazon). Setup on a MacBook Pro is brain-dead simple. Insert the CD, start the install and plug in the enclosed USB cable, all according to the instructions. Went through the setup routine, which included wireless. Disconnected the USB cable and voila, I'm printing wirelessly. Changed the IP configuration from DHCP to static to prevent later problems, simple using the web management app. Scans JPG or PDF, also through a web app. Text isn't as black as I would like, but it's a $50.00 printer (at Walmart...) and I can live with that. The perfect printer for any student. Print, scan or copy. Since it's new, I have no experience with the ink cartridge life, which other reviewers have complained about. I was apprehensive on buying it based on what I read in other reviews, but I thought that HP makes tens of thousands of this printer and my experience has been that HP is alalogous with printers. I still use a HP 990C that I have had for years and have no complaints about it. While your experience may vary, I do not think you will go wrong with this printer.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The early version of this printer was not AirPrint enabled. To print from your iOS device (iPhone, iPad, IPod Touch) you needed an app like Print n Share. I suppose the "A" in 3050 means AirPrint because it makes all the difference.

With AirPrint you do not need to load something into iTunes. If your printer is on the same network, you just press the "print" button and out comes your document. We have put it in our office which lets two iPad using attorneys produced documents edited on iPads with ease.

As to the printer itself, it is called an "All In One" but it has no fax capability. Anyway that is not a major concern of mine since we use an Internet fax server, and if one wanted to fax, the flatbed scanner produces PDFs which can be used to send to the fax server.

For a low priced printer scanner copier there is a lot to like. It sets up easily. Print quality is excellent. It is quiet. AirPrint seals the deal however.
