My parents needed a basic, cheap and uncomplicated printer for occasional use. After reading many reviews and weighing up the ink costs, I decided to order the HP Deskjet 1010 from Amazon. I ordered an additional XL black cartridge too so we were prepared for when the "starter cartridges" run out. After printing off quite a few documents, the starter ink is still going strong. I imagine the XL black ink will last ages. Setting up the printer was fairly easy and it runs fine on Windows XP with a service pack 3 installed. The print quality is top notch and I have no problems with recommending this printer to anyone with basic printing needs.

Arrived , well packed on day promised.

Set up as instructed - did not start up but while checking set up in manual started it ran perfectly.

Limited use to date but quality of output very acceptable. Not as robust a machine as my old HP 895cxi but faster.

All in all value for money assuming ink costs not too high.

I needed a second printer for a specific job which my beast of an all in one Epsom couldn't do, printing on transparency sheets.
I purchased this as a light weight basic printer and couldn't be happier. It folds up very neatly so I can put it away in the cupboard when not in use. It doesn't have any networking capabilities, but for the price frankly I couldn't care less.
Cartridges last reasonably well and are not too expensive to replace (compared to the beast anyway), and also come in XL sizes which last even longer and are even cheaper. Oh and unlike the beast, they are also recyclable, so I can also do my bit.
It does just the job for the transparencies I need and I've also used it for printing letters and flyers with photos and am really happy with the results.

I CHOSE THIS PRINTER BECAUSE IT WAS RELATIVELY CHEAP. MY LAST PRINTER CONKED OUT AND I NEEDED ONE TO REPLACE IT. MY SISTER INSTALLED THE PRINTER AND THERE HAS BEEN NO PROBLEMS WITH IT AT ALL.. GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY.

I like the fact the HP printer is a lot quicker than my old Epson, but I am disappointed with it's printing of scanned documents. I have to scan my Radio Times Crossword amongst others, to enable me to enlarge and read the clues, but I find whereas the Epson printout was nice and sharp, the HP printer 'ghosts', i.e. is will print a 3 with another 3 a little below. making it even more difficult to read. Such a pity, otherwise I love it and the easy access to replacing ink cartridges.
I did not find it easy to set up and after two days trying had to have professional help in the end, some of it had to be done on-line. Why can't they stick to the simple way of just providing a disc that will do the job with no complications.

in it's own right it is perfect - annoyingly you don't get a cable from the printer to the PC - I misread thinking it would be a scanner, copier as well - but all in all - it prints.

I bought this printer for I was looking for a small printer that is basic but also good quality printing this printer ticks all the boxes. It is quite quick printing in seconds, it looks good, the inks are easy to insert. Anyone looking for just a printer would do no better than to buy this printer, It has no quirkiness to it it does only print but that is what I wanted and if you want the same then I suggest you consider buying this. Easy to install

Wanted a cheap no frills printer for occasional use and Which? reckons this uses very little ink when used infrequently. Only time will tell but it was easy enough to set up. Didn't use the CD driver because my AppleMac automatically downloads drivers for a range of modern printers. Just had to set the default printer in Tools. So up and running very quickly and if it still works in a year I'll give it an extra star and that will be a good result for me. I've got three old printers in the garage waiting to be thrown away.

This printer worked exactly as expected and does its job. I would have given it a 5* rating if it had also included a USB cable (luckily I had read other reviews beforehand so knew that this had to be purchased separately)

I purchased this for my mother who only needs it for occasional printing. I was looking for something that would be compact and easy for her to use as she is not very tech savvy.

It was quick to set up and actually looks nicer than I had anticipated!

It comes with a black ink cartridge and a colour ink cartridge which is great, but no USB which was a pain!

Thus far she is happy with it and not experienced any problems. I would recommend this printer for all those who are looking for a low priced printer that is easy to use.
