Was easy to setup - used the WPS feature on my router and the printer was on the network in seconds. I downloaded and installed the latest software from the HP website installed it on our laptop (XP) and desktop (W7) and both are now printing straight to the printer without one having to print 'through' the other. Excellent.

The quality is okay, not a lot of recent experience with inkjets to allow me to make comparisons but I'm pleased with the quality and speed for the money. Paid £15 for a replacement black and colour ink carts (from Amazon), which seems not too bad. One of each comes in the box and they seem to be full size carts.

So I've dragged my Mum kicking ans screaming into the 21st century by buying her an Android Tablet (A Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to be exact). Now all the official blurb says that you can only print to a Samsung printer and these are few and far between. But with a little £7.50 utility called PrinterShare by a company called Mobile Dynamix your Android device can print on other types of printers. So I flicked through the list of printers supported by PrinterShare and there was the HP DeskJet 3000. Fast forward to today and I went to my Mum's house to do the install:

So I followed most of the instructions - the bit about removing the packaging and fitting the print cartridges, but at the bit where connecting to a PC with a USB cable was called for, I went a bit "off-piste" - but this works... Press the WPS wireless pairing button on the Wireless router sent out by PlusNet and press the wireless pairing button on this printer. Wait a few seconds and then the printer whirrs into life and prints three pages in quick succession showing that it has used DHCP and got itself an IP address and is advertising itself as a shared printer in the workgroup "WORKGROUP" on the network. No need at all for a PC or a Mac or a server! Now fire up PrinterShare on the Samsung tablet, select print on a network printer by Wi-Fi, another quick 4MB download of a printer driver (all automatic - just say "OK" in the dialogue box) and you have wireless full colour printing from a cheap tablet direct to a colour inkjet printer.

Astonishing that this just works straight out of the box. Very impressed with the print quality on HP's own "home and office" A4 paper. I just know trhat my Mum will be chewing through paper and ink at an astonishing rate.

Well done HP for making wireless printing hassle free.

Printer itself is cheap and cheerful. Print quality somewhat dubious - characters can be a bit fluffy - and obviously its an ink jet so will smudge, but you get what you pay for. But far less forgivable is the outrageous cost of the tiny ink cartridges. I had heard that this is HP's business model - they make a loss on the printers and sting you on the ink - and now I truly believe that - I'm effectively paying for a new printer every few dozen pages. Even 3rd party cartridges are pricey. Never will I buy HP again. And just to add insult to injury, the HP printer driver installation stuffed my firewall/router settings, which took hours on the phone to HP, the router manufacturer and BT to resolve - BT worked round it in the end but at the cost of lowering the security level of my Wifi encryption.

very light weight in comparison to my old epson 760, but prints really quick. Noisy and wobbly but prints fine.

works well but rather "fragile" plastic construction; ink cartridges expensive but I am sticking with HP originals 'cos of bad experiences with the cheap substitutes for my old Epson 880 ... so much ink was expended head cleaning that there was no savings in the end and the print quality was inferior to boot !
