Ease of Use

We use this All-In-One every day at Overall the system is fast and relatively easy to use. The user menus could use some improvement though as a few of our employees had some trouble with the settings. One feature that would have been nice would be to have a flatbed scanner for the copy function. The way the system is currently you have to use the automatic feeder that only accepts flat sheets so if you have something not flat you would have to get another all-in-one that has a flatbed scanner. This was a deficiency we were not aware of at the time of purchase because the description wasn't clear that there was a limit to what can be coppied.

-John Kwan quote

I've been using the Samsung CLP-500 as my main printer for quite some time, so when I off-loaded my monochrome printing load to my new HP LJ 3050 I was pleasantly surprised when my 3-page print job finished in less than ten seconds after I clicked on the 'Print' icon in Microsoft Word. Not only that, but the print job was great quality, too. I upped the resolution from the 'Quick Print' setting the printer defaulted to and though it did print noticably slower, the quality was about the same. The speed that it scans and copies is also very quick. And while I use the standalone fax feature more often than not, using the fax through the computer is oh-so-nice (since you print to the fax just like the printer). The OCR included with the scanner is also a low-cost (free) alternative to OmniPage Pro (which I do own) that is included with the scanner and has excellent learning features. All-in-all, I'm very impressed with yet another awesome printer from HP.

It will take a little time to grow into this, but so far I am very pleased. While I am still somewhat in love with my old Brother HL-1040, this is every bit as good without the power drain the Brother was. It's fast and relatively quiet. This is also my first scanner so that's a nice bonus, and the free OCR software--well, I feel like I have a James Bond gadget. I have not faxed and copied so far, but expect that will go without a hitch. I hope it will be as resilient as the Brother, which lasted 8 years and was trouble free. I have not been able to use the scan button on the actual unit. The documentation slightly falls short, but I am not completely lost.

Great All In One

by Mike on 3/17/2007

Bought the HP3050 when HP had 50% rebates, and I love the unit so the value is off the charts. I use it mostly to print and fax, but the scanner and specifically the scan to PDF work flawlessly. I just finished scanning all of my letter sized tax documents. I used my flatbed for the smaller receipts and canceled checks, but could have used the HP3050 (after I finished scanning, I scanned a single check to test it and it fed and scanned perfectly). The document feeder hasn't jammed on me yet. I've also found that it scans straighter than the HP3055 in our office (a flatbed with an ADF which always turns the scan 5 or so degrees). The only con is that the printer and computer lose communications with each other periodically and I get a "Document Failed to Print Error". The fix is simple.. Power the HP3050 off then back on again. It gets annoying, but I can't really pin it on the all-in-one. It may also be a conflict or configuration issue on my PC. I highly recommend this unit. Especially when on sale or with rebates.
