The HP Deskjet 1051 is a compact and affordable all-in-one color inkjet printer designed for the budget-conscious home user. It offers basic functionality at a very low price, though its print speeds are a bit on the slow side, at 16 pages per minute for black and 12 pages per minute for color. Printer ink costs are fairly reasonable, but HP 1051 ink supplies could be larger.
You won't find many bells and whistles with the 1051, but you will find straightforward printing, scanning, and copying features that are simple and easy to use. The included software is intuitive, and helps guide users through the major functions, and setting the printer up is a quick and painless process. The unit's compact design will be appealing to those with limited space, but a few sacrifices were made for its compact design and low price. For example, the input tray holds only 60 sheets, and the output tray holds only 25.
When it comes to printer ink, this inkjet model incorporates two Deskjet 1051 ink cartridges. The first of the HP 1051 ink cartridges is black, and the second is a tri-color cartridge, which handles color output. There are high-capacity versions of Deskjet 1051 ink, which are necessary, as the standard versions are small and must be replaced often. Using compatible HP 1051 ink will help save even more on operating costs.
User reviews of the HP 1051 are mixed- with some praising its affordable price and others mentioning problems with reliability. Some users report issues with paper jams and other feeding errors.
Overall, the main advantages of the HP 1051 are its low price and its compact design. Buyers who need more advanced functionality or who value faster speeds may want to consider paying a bit more for other models.
