HP Deskjet 1050 All-in-One Printer Review

November 25th, 2010 15 comments

HP Deskjet 1050 All-in-One Printer can be used as scanner and photocopier in addition to printing. Deskjet Printers are generally less expensive than the Laser Printers, but, the cost of the ink and cartridge can turn out to be more in long run. This is also true with the HP Deskjet 1050 printer. In some peculiar circumstance this printer can be good, as, it is available at Walmart for just $34 (at the time of writing). On 2010 black Friday this printer sold for $20. The price at amazon is slightly more expensive.

In general we do not recommend this printer as there has been some issues reported with this printer by the customers. The most important of these issues is the expensive ink cartridge replacement and printer getting stuck at some point of time. Here are some of the conditions and circumstances under which this printer can be a good buy for you

– Your printing needs are rare. Like 10 or 20 copies a month. The only time you need taking a print out is, when you need to print a map, you income tax returns etc. If you regularly need, like 5 copies a day, we suggest that you invest in laser printer.

– You also plan to use this printer for your scanning needs.

A must read …..

Did you know that a Laser Printer can turn out to be better investment in long term ? Read about Laser Printer Vs Deskjet Printer

The print speed of Deskjet 1050 is decent at 16 pages per minute for Grey scale content and 12 pages per minute for color. The resolution is relatively decent at 600 dots per inch for black and 4800×1200 dpi for color content.

The cartridges that are supported by HP Deskjet 1050 All-in-One Printer are HP 61XL Tri-color Ink Cartridges, HP 61 and HP61XL Black Ink Cartridges.

As a copier, it can make 4.5 copies per minute with black and while copies 2.5 copies per minute with color ones.

As a scanner HP Deskjet 1050 can scan at 1200 dpi, though you may want to use smaller resolution for faster scanning in many circumstances.

The software CD that comes with HP Deskjet 1050 All-in-One Printer ontains the driver for the printer and the user starter guide. There is one year technical support provided by the company via the telephone and one year coverage for the hardware. Make sure you keep the receipts properly. You MAY NEED to return the printer.

Taking the cost spent for buying the printer is simply equal to what we pay to get a printer or a scanner or a photocopier but we get all three capabilities for the same price of a single item. This simply cost effective solutions to many needs.

HP Deskjet 1050 is Energy Star Certified, consuming less energy and helping keep environment green. However, if you end up throwing this printer ( as its cartridge turned out to be expensive), it will eventually lead to more waste.
