At such a low purchase price, buyers might expect the HP Deskjet 3056a e-All-in-One inkjet printer to come with a lot of compromises, but there are very few. It can print at up to 20 pages per minute in black and 16 pages per minute in color, and it can scan and copy. Deskjet 3056a printer ink can be expensive, but alternatives are available.
The design of the 3056a has a glossy black appearance that is appealing, and it can be made quite compact when the trays are folded inward for storage. It measures 6.14x16.81x12.05 inches in storage, and weighs only 7.94 pounds, even with the HP 3056a printer ink installed. The LCD screen pops up for easier viewing, but can also lay flat for a slimmer profile.
Users have the option of a USB 2.0 port or Wi-Fi sharing, though an ethernet port is not included. Users who want duplex printing won't find it here, either. Buyers will find support for a variety of mobile printing options, though. iOS devices can use Apple AirPrint for easy printing with virtually no setup, and HP provides the ePrint protocol for printing remotely from any device that can send email. Best of all, ePrint apps are cross-platform and available for many popular devices.
The use of tricolor HP 3056a ink cartridges makes them easier to replace, but could mean additional waste. The prices for OEM versions of Deskjet 3056a ink cartridges can be a little expensive, so users might want to seek out remanufactured HP 3056a ink for the extra savings, turning it into a very cost-effective device.
For the low price, the HP 3056a inkjet printer exceeds expectations. Not only can it handle printing, scanning, and copying quite well, its mobile printing features and compact design will appeal to users with a lot of devices in the house.
