The HP Deskjet 1050 is a popular color inkjet unit among household users. This isn't your standard printer, because it can scan and copy too. With speeds of up to 16 pages per minute using black HP 1050 ink, it certainly isn't the fastest machine on the market, but for most home users speed isn't much of a problem. For those with patience, the color speeds of 12 pages per minute won't be a problem either. Able to print on brochure paper, inkjet paper, plain paper, envelopes, labels, greeting cards, photo paper and transparencies, users will find a great deal of versatility in the 1050. It is Mac and Windows compatible, and connection is offered via USB. When using the Deskjet 1050 ink cartridges, resolutions as high as 4800x1200 dpi can be reached. The only downside is that HP ePrint isn't offered like it is with newer HP models.
All around there are more positive reviews than negative ones. Buyers generally find that it is a great deal for a low upfront price, and most have said that setting it up is simple too. Most find that it is just as easy to use as it is to install too. The quality of printed documents is always great, according to reviews, and the model doesn't make a lot of noise either. The one complaint with the 1050 seems to be the same as most machines—people complain about the price tag on the HP 1050 ink cartridges.
What a lot of the population doesn't know is that remanufactured printer ink can be purchased from third party vendors, like Deskjet 1050 ink. The remanufactured tanks of HP 1050 ink will work just as well as the OEM version, but they will cost dramatically less. For anyone wanting to save money on inkjet tanks, remanufactured replacements are the best way to go.

The Deskjet 1050 may be the most basic of its lineup, but it is also the most affordable. It can still print up to 16 pages per minute, and includes basic scanning and copying functions. Its light weight and compact design make it very easy to set up, and ink costs are fairly reasonable as well.
Although the model shown differs in appearance, the process is the same.
Turn the printer on if it isn’t already, then lift from underneath the scanner lid to raise the access cover. After a moment, the carrier holding the cartridges will move into view on its own.
Locate the HP 1050 ink cartridge that is empty, and lift up its lid. You can then grab the cartridge and pull it out of the opening.
Open the box for the replacement Deskjet 1050 cartridge and remove it. Cut or open the plastic bag and remove that as well, then pinch the handles of the protective plastic so you can pry it from the cartridge carefully. Find the packing tape at the bottom and pull to remove it.
Place the new 1050 ink cartridge into the opening loosely, then close the lid gently, making sure it closes completely. Lower the access cover of the printer carefully to finish the job.
You are now ready to resume printing with your HP Deskjet 1050 printer.
