HP 3050A All in One Wi-Fi Printer down to £20

Another printer deal from Argos, this time, it is an all in one inkjet printer, the HP Deskjet 3050A, which costs only £20 and is being cleared out - meaning you can only reserve it for collection rather than getting it posted.

Other than the fact that it is a wireless printer (with a USB port but no network ones), this entry level MFP has a print speed of around 5.5ppm in black and 4ppm in colour. It can reach a print resolution of up to 4,800 x 1,200dpi, has a paper capacity of 100 sheet and uses two ink cartridges.

Its scanner has an optical resolution of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi and surprising at this price range, it comes with a 5in colour display and unlike more expensive rivals, includes a USB cable too.

The Deskjet 3050A can be used as a stand-alone copier, is compatible with Linux, can print from a mobile device, and its genuine cartridges are surprisingly cheap at less than a £10 each.

Given that an inkjet printer costs around that price, and a scanner on its own often costs more than twice that price, this nifty little printer offers great value for money bargain.
