With copying, scanning, and printing in a compact package, the HP Deskjet 3052a All-in-One not only handles a lot of tasks, but it is available for a remarkably low price. Users won't get the fastest speeds in its class, at only 20 pages per minute for black and 16 for color, but it does come with wireless networking and support for ePrint. Even the high-capacity Deskjet 3052a printer ink supplies are fairly affordable, as well.
The 3052a sports a sleek, modern look, and it measures just 6.14x16.81x12.05 inches, with a weight of just less than 8 pounds, even with its HP 3052a printer ink in place. A small 60-sheet input paper tray folds out from the top, but it can be folded down for easier storage, and the front output tray folds up as well.
The 2-inch display is monochrome, so users won't get full-color photo previews, but it does a good job of helping users navigate menus and control the different functions. With the ePrint functionality, users can send a document to a unique email address from almost any device and have it print, even remotely. The downside is that a wireless network is required for this feature, as it doesn't include an ethernet port.
The standard Deskjet 3052a ink cartridges have capacities of 165 pages for the tricolor supply and 190 pages for black. Upgraded to the high-capacity HP 3052a ink cartridges will net up to 330 pages for the tricolor supply and 480 for black, keeping the cost per page lower. With remanufactured HP 3052a ink available, it is very easy to reduce operating costs even more.
The Deskjet 3052a certainly seems appealing at such a low price, while still providing great functionality. Buyers should be aware of its limitations, such as slower speeds and lack of ethernet networking, but for simple low-volume home use, it is an excellent value.
