HP Deskjet 3050A Wireless Printer

 hp deskjet 3052

We have a lot of issues with printers in our house. We research them and end up with duds, or they don’t work for long, go through ink quickly, or, in recent years, promise to be wireless but really aren’t.  It’s frustrating- and expensive.  When we had the chance to check out the HP Deskjet 3050A Wireless Printer, I jumped at the chance, because this is a brand we have not yet experienced, and the idea that I can print from my tablet or my PHONE had me excited….

excited…and now I’m hooked.  I actually woke my husband up a few nights last week because I found things I just had to print in the middle of the night when I couldn’t sleep…you know, important things, to plan for our upcoming vacation, or gift ideas for the kids.  I haven’t been able to print reliably in well over a year and now that I can, well, I’m hooked.  I might even just print this blog post, just for fun.

I’m in love with my  HP Deskjet 3052A Wireless e-All-In-One Printer w/ ePrint Mobile Printing and Airprint and I can’t even believe the pricing on it.  It’s $40.00 off right now- 37% off normal retail of $109.00.  And it works.  Really well. I can print from my iPad, or use the app on my phone and voila! A few moments later, it’s printed.  For about $70.00.

With HP XL ink cartridges – there are only 2 cartridges you will need for your printer.  Period.  They hold more ink, and still fit your printer just like regular cartridges.  It’s just more ink for your money. You can save up to 40%! I hate spending money on printer ink.  Maybe you don’t, but it’s one of those “things” that irritates me to purchase. I like being able to save on it.


I received the printer and XL ink as part of a promotional program with MomSelect.

  • Can you believe I haven't had a printer in about 6 years? I'm going to get in trouble at work soon if I don't get one for home :) Thanks for the kick in the pants...I'll have to check this one out and see if it works with everything I have.
  • THANK YOU THANK YOU for this review and info! I am in desperate need of a new printer!!!!! I have been driving to Office Depot to print everything and I am sick of it - my printer died.
  • That's exactly what I need! I have pics on my phone that I'd really like to have printed! My mom was asking me the other day if I could do it for her and nope...no wireless printer at my house! Thanks for the review! And I'm with you, I hate spending $ on ink.
