Count on affordable photo and everyday printing

Original HP supplies

Ink is much more than just coloured water; the unique, hi-tech formula for HP ink is designed to work with all the mechanical parts of the print cartridge, and the printer itself, to deliver high quality results across a wide range of papers, in a variety of environmental conditions.

Why Original HP Inks?

It takes up to three years to develop new inks, so a huge amount of work goes into producing Original HP Inks, from the selection of superior ingredients to precision engineering of both the chemical formula of the ink and the high-performance ink cartridge components.

The print cartridge itself is the product of years of research and development and is much more than just an ink tank. The integrated print head on an HP cartridge includes an intelligent circuit that controls the hundreds of nozzles, each finer than a human hair, which deliver the ink onto the page. Each drop of ink is fired onto the page on the back of a tiny vapour blast of heat 7 times the intensity of the sun that lasts for just two millionths of a second; this energy blast exposes the ink drop to forces up to one million G’s. Some of the latest Original HP ink cartridges can deliver in excess of 29 million drops per second.

In many of HP’s home printers, over 50% of the printing technology is contained within the cartridge itself; which means every time you replace your Original HP Ink Cartridge you are installing a brand new print engine. Original HP Inks are developed in conjunction with HP papers to ensure maximum compatibility and performance. The result is the perfect balance of colour, permanence and reliability.

Standard Value Packs/XL packs

HP offers a range of ink cartridges tailored to the way you print. To help you make smart choices about printing and costs, HP has created a portfolio of cartridge offerings with various price tags for you to choose from.

Wow what a great little HP printer and loving the fact it comes with ink so you can try it out straight away! So easy to set up on the wireless network that my daughter linked her own laptop in under 5 mins. Its a case of put in the disk and keep clinking next! Comes with easy to follow instructions for those of us with less confidence in these matters. Its quite quick and not that loud, Ive set it up in the dinning room and cant hear it at all. Cant believe the features in this printer for the price I paid. It might not be the best printer if you want it for photos (dont know as I havent tried it) but for use for homework, it's perfect.
Also I know this isnt really about the product but alot of us have had problems with delivery with HDNL, but I would just like to say that with this product I went for the free p&p as it was just for me and not a gift and it arrived in 2 days. Just wanted to say they dont ALWAYS get it wrong!

This printer does the job really well, whether you are scanning and sending wirelessly as a pdf file to the laptop, wirelessly printing in black or colour ink, or even simply photocopying, this printer delivers high quality results each time. The cost of replacing the ink is not bad either (£11 for replacement black ink). If you require a printer to use on a casual basis then I strongly recommend this. This is definitely the best printer I've owned so far. In the past I would purchase top of the range models for £250+ but this HP printer leaves a smile on my face for less than £35!

I needed a cheap scanner / printer, I purchased this printer (not from Amazon as I was in a rush).

The printer produces good quality prints (have not tried photos), and the scanner produces good quality scans. The scanner will not win any races in the speed it scans but it is not a commercial scanner, is quick enough for me.

The wireless setup was simple, anyone who has connected a computer to their wireless network should have no problems.

Overall very happy with the printer/scanner.

I purchased this product thinking its gonna be a useless because of the cheap price. Even though it had everything going for it value wise. The ink needed is one of the cheapest on the market, so ideal for the kids to use aswell.
when the printer arrived I was quite pleasently suprised. It looks good, its wireless!,compact and the print quality is very good. So an all round happy purchase!!!

When I bought this printer it was easy to set up and the wireless setup was easy. I managed to get the printer on the home network with no problems and when printing colour and black and white documents I was pleased with the results.

I bought this printer mainly to print my daughters School homework. With regards to this she designed a poster on Microsoft Publisher 2010 using Windows 7 and when I went to page review I noticed that the preview showed the bottom line (Margin) missing. When I printed the document it printed as per screen with bottom of about 1.5 cm missing. I changed my printer to my Samsung Laser printer and the preview was all correct and when printed on Samsung all the document printed out.

I looked at the HP Deskjet 3050 properties and could not adjust the printer settings to make the whole document print.

I contacted HP who after making attempts to fix the problem decided that the printer was faulty and are now sending me a new one from Germany. At this stage I am not convinced that the problem lies with the actual printer but the software/drivers have a problem thus missing the bottom margin.

I have tried other document software however it still does not print the bottom of the page.

The new printer arrived and I have discovered the same problem. Again I contacted HP technical support and after one hour on the phone speaking to the technician and trying different drivers and solutions he gave up and I have emailed a computer Log file to HP for the technical support/driver manufacturer to come up with a solution to this problem. They told me this could take some time and will get back to me.

I have been given promises by HP after speaking to them on the phone in Capetown that this problem will be fixed.

Dont print excessively, but this little wireless has been easy to install, set up with network very easy and printer not very noisy. Little bulky to hide away but then again dont have a home office. Havent run out of ink yet so dont know what the costs of replacements are going to be like. Price vs Quality is definitely a plus - well worth the price.
Scanner works well too.

Well I can confirm that this printer is Mac friendly for all you Mac users out there like myself. I set the printer up on my Windows 7 laptop with the installation cd that came with it and got it connected to my wi-fi router then within 5 minutes i was printing wirelessly. Also setting it up on my iMac was very simple, i just went into system preferences then print and fax and then clicked add printer and then the printer showed up. The printer is also packaged well and the copying and scanning facilities are brilliant, having a photocopier in the house now is very useful. Great buy and would definitely recommend it.
