    Excellent No Frills Printer

    While wireless printing is great (and this can be used for wirless printing if hooked up to a router that supports it, of course), many of us just want a simple and inexpensive printer for that occasional document. This excels here. HP printers are built to last, it's highly affordable, and it's ink is cheap to replace as well. It's a good old inkjet like what used to dominate the market. No computer screen or WiFi setup, etc. All those are great, of course, but if you want a simple inkjet for that occasional document you print from your computer and don't need phone/tablet printing etc - this is for you. The money you will save can be used towards cooler tech anyways - because no matter what printer you have, if you print from across the house you still need to go collect the printed pages ;-).

    PERFECT Basic Printer!

    I didn’t want a printer with a fax line, a scanner, and/or a copier, and it didn’t have to have WiFi capabilities. Just a simple basic printer that will print out my family photos, and the occasional sheets of paper. This printer is wonderful. The pictures are high quality, and the printer itself is sleek and semi-portable. Though I wouldn’t label it as a “portable printer”, it is VERY lightweight and doesn’t take up very much space. It doesn’t print very fast, but for my personal usage speed isn’t necessary. If I were a student or using it for work purposes and had to printer multiple sheets of papers very often then this would probably have to go back, lol. It’s also quite quiet. :) FYI: it ONLY comes with a power cord - the cable is NOT INCLUDED and MUST be purchased separately.

    Overall, the HP - DeskJet 1112 Printer in white is well worth the money. This printer is compact in size and fits in smaller spaces on your desk which is a positive feature if you are looking for space saving equipment. This HP Deskjet printer also prints extremely high-quality images and the ink in this printer is very affordable. Another positive feature about the HP Deskjet printer is that it is overall light-weight and very user-friendly to install and the installation process is quick and easy. This HP Deskjet printer prints papers fairly quickly and prints a diverse assortment of prints such as photographs and spreadsheets which look very professional. I would highly recommend this HP - DeskJet 1112 Printer to others who are looking to purchase an easy-to-use and reliable printer.

    Nice Simple Printer

    For simple printing this is the cheapest deal to be had if you don't need wireless printing. You do need a printer cable (purchased separately for about $25) it has a USB 2.0 end and then a 'square-ish' end that will connect to the printer. It comes both with a black and color ink cartridges and make sure to 'push hard till it clicks in' the ink cartridges into the proper slot. As of April 2016 there is at least one software update for the printer and can be done with 'internet connection.' If you connect to the internet for the registration and software update there is no need to use the supplied install disc. The install disc will be needed only if you have no 'internet connection'. For advanced users, beware of HP bloatware.

    Not a photo printer

    I bought this printer specifically to print photos at home and was sadly disappointed. The quality was very poor, even on high grade photo paper and it doesn't' do borderless printing (a must for photos). Considering my 12 year old HP printer that just died could do borderless, there is no excuse for a printer being sold in 2016 not to print borderless. Even worse, every print came out smudged from the rollers. It also over applied ink to everyday color prints, resulting in paper that looked damp. In addition, there is no paper tray, so sheets must be loaded from the top. This means that the height requirement nearly doubles, in regards to the space needed. If you need to put it on a shelf, keep this in mind. If you need a very economical printer for kids to print out school projects in color, then go ahead and get this. It is good enough for that. If you would like to be able to print nice photos, then skip it. About the only positive I found was that it easily printed on 110 lb card stock. That wasn't enough for me , so I returned it.

    Top Quality for a Great Low Price.

    If you only need to print a page or pages or just use it to copy a document. This is the one printer that is value priced. It looks and feels solid. Nice and compact.Easy to install and run. Will work with Vista and on up. The Black ink is inexpensive and the color ink ,if needed, is just a little more. The Color Photo Quality is Excellent,very impressed. Will not do any scaning. Does not accept usb sticks or mem cards. Just load those to your computer and print from there. Very Satisfied with this printer. Only strange thing was it does not come with the usb computer to printer cord. I already had that card. Most do. 5 Stars. No issues at all.

    This printer is reliable and low cost. I have only used it for basic printing needs and am quite happy with it. I chose this printer because a more expensive printer from Canon gave me problems when not used for long periods of time and had 5 ink cartridges that were expensive and ran out of ink quickly. This printer has only 2 cartridges (color and black) and the cartridges are relatively affordable. I also like that the HP will continue to print in black even if the color cartridge is empty (unlike the Canon that would fail to print if even one of the cartridges was empty). Set up was simple and after 2 months of light use, I have not encountered any problems.

    Ink jet printer use is very expensive because of the price of ink cartridges. That's why buying an inkjet printer shouldn't cost an arm and a leg. With that said, this HP Deskjet Printer is fairly priced and works fairly well. I'm glad to see that there are still printers that are not wireless. The printer has worked very well, without paper jams. Moreover, I'm also satisfied with the print quality. Very crisp. My only complaint is that these ink jet cartridges seem to be much smaller than the ones I use to get in the previous HP DeskJet printer I had. I remember I could print using almost 1 ream of paper on one black cartridge those days. Now to do that I have to buy a higher-priced cartridge. But as for the function of the machine, it's satisfactory. Only wish it came in black.

    This printer does NOT include USB cable

    Posted
    Gene

    Be aware of that the USB cable is not included. This printer does not offer wireless printing, which means you must connect it to your computer by a USB cable. Considering extra cost of the cable, $5~20, this price might not be cheap as much as you expected unless you already have one at home. I'm not sure how many figure out this fact before purchasing, but I thought it should be included. Right, this is not a fault of anyone, maybe a fault of my negligence, because I realized later that "What's Included" never listed it and Q&A revealed this fact. But, I wish it could be notified on the specification or somewhere customers can more easily figure out.

    Excellent printer: small & compact, attractive, prints well, takes the same ink cartridges as my HP ENVY printer which is convenient. It's a plug-N-play unit with Windows 10: connect it up and the driver & software automatically load. It comes with a CD so you can do this manually if you so desire. HP Smart is an app that installs automatically and allows you to monitor ink levels, make adjustments, change printing preferences, and perform maintenance on the printer. HP Smart automatically incorporated this printer in the app along with my HP ENVY printer. Neat! Surprisingly, this printer comes with no USB cable! ?????

    Basic Featureless Printer

    I have a terrible history with printers. It seems like no matter how much I pay and regardless of he brand, I simply cannot manage to make a printer last more than one year; usually just after the warranty expires, so does the printer.This time, I was shopping price first and foremost. This little HP does what it is supposed to do ... print! It doesn't copy, scan, fax, or wash dishes. If you want something to just print, this is it. It was easy to set-up and use. It's NOT wireless, so be aware before you buy. The ink cartridges are reasonable. If this goes down in one year, I'll still be money ahead.

    Has color printing problems

    Price is great. Size is great...compact. If you're happy with printing only in black, it's fine. The color printing has problems. Bought one, returned it. Got another one, same problem. According to a tech, it has a reputation for color printing problems. I'm sure it's not all of the printers, but I didn't get one of the lucky ones. Bought an Epson, a little bigger, but we could still pack it and travel with it, which is what we'd hoped with the HP. That being said, every other HP product we've ever had, and still have...excellent.

    I was attracted to this printer because of the price. We will at times travel and stay in a hotel/motel, so I decided I couldn't go wrong by buying this one and taking it with us on trips if something needed to be printed. Alas, after following exactly all the instructions to connect it to my Windows 10 laptop, it just would not shake hands. The laptop recognized it was there, but the printer would not print. Apparently HP driver downloads would not recognize the latest Win 10 OS. Buy this only if your OS is Win 7 or earlier.

      Hello Billy,

      I am upset that this happened to you. Win10 is a little tricky but, will usually work if you download the full-featured software to use with it.

      However, you might be more pleased with one of HP's mobile printers. They are quite cute: bestbuy.com/site/hp-officejet-250-mobile-wireless-all-in-one-printer-black/5375401.p

    I bought this printer to be delivered and it came on time. The set up was fairly easy, and it printed a few documents I needed the first week of use. However, come the second week, it stopped working all together. Documents I try to print don't even show up in the queue! Maybe I should have expected this for such a low price. DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER!!!! Invest in one of higher quality and you will most likely get better results.

    I am very happy with this printer. I have fallen victim to the expensive wireless printers that either use more ink and any one person can afford or the ink dries up before you use the printer again. I bought this little printer because I needed something to get my by and I have to say it is by far the best printer I have ever owned. I have been using it over a year now and I have only had to change the ink once. If you are someone who only prints a few pages here or there, this is perfect for you.

    Great basic printer for the price

    Have always been satisfied with HP printers and (especially) their print cartridges. This one has a couple of minor flaws. It doesn't come with a USB cable, but most people have one around, I would think. My main gripe is with the power cable-- the printer connection is loose and comes off easily. Finally, there is a popup telling you to collect your reward every time you print-- there's probably an easy way to disable it permanently, but I haven't found it yet. Still, a great printer for the price.

    It performs OK for a 30.00 printer but I was hoping for just a bit more and no I do not expect miracles. I have a Motorola Maxx droid operated Verizon phone and I was hoping I could print directly from the phone to your printer. Your instructions said it would but it won't. I downloaded the HP printer app, the cloud printer app, and the Hammermill printer app and none of them will work. Yes, I followed the instructions to set up wireless and HP is on the network.

    I wanted a color printer but didn’t want or need an all-in-one printer/scanner/copier or the large footprint that comes with it. This printer hooked up quickly, installed quickly, and printed its first job quickly with good color. I like that it came with some starter cartridges though I hear they don’t last long. It looks sleek and takes up little space. Can’t beat it for the price!

    Needed a simple/affordable printer (to print documents in black ink) ...and this HP is perfect. I was amaze that the set up was VERY simple, I just plug in the power, connect usb cables and click PRINT !!!!!! PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PURCHASE DOES NOT INCLUDE THE USB CABLE ( USB 2.0 Cable - A-Male to B-Male) ..had to buy one from Amazon for $5.50, thus I only gave 3 stars instead of 5 stars (does not make any sense why HP co. not include cable)

    I was pretty sure this cheap little printer was not going to handle the labels an business cards I print on it. But at the price I got it for. It was worth the risk. I am Thrilled with this printer! My labels look professional my cards look great!!! Some times a big surprise comes with a small price tag. Love this little printer
