HP Deskjet 1010 Printer (CX015B)
An affordable, simple inkjet device suited for value for money printing.
The HP 1010 Deskjet printer is made to suit the needs of the home or small office user. Using hardware is sometimes daunting to some, and printers can be particularly frustrating to try and work with, but the 1010 Deskjet is simple, and completely hassle-free.
Even better still, the affordable compatible HP ink supplies for the HP 1010 Deskjet support the overall life cycle of the printer and the print quality. Ensuring you use the genuine HP 301 black, 301 colour, 301XL black and 301XL colour inks. You can see the full benefits of using original HP ink as discussed later in this feature review.
Featuring a high speed USB 2.0, this HP 1010 printer is a one-button, straight-forward budget printing device that does simply what any home or small office user would expect; quick print speeds, simple set-up and operation for everyone, plus economical printing being just a few of the benefits.
If you need an intelligent compact device that you can use regularly for home printing, the space-saving 1010 Deskjet is certainly a viable solution. At only 254 x 423 x 509mm it will sit happily tucked to the corner of your desk to perform everyday printing and connects promptly to a computer device, able to process print data fast. Hewlett-Packard have realised how desk space can often be at a premium, so the HP 1010 has been made to fit almost anywhere.
Able to print from DL envelope up to A4 size, the paper tray can be loaded with around 60 sheets of standard printing paper, and when not in use, the rear tray can be folded (without paper) to a flush fit on the top of the printer, allowing you to store it where desired. It only weighs 2.00 kg, making it easy to transport in an effortless instant.
Compatible with all of the latest computer operating systems, this budget HP 1010 flexible printer really has no hidden costs and it does exactly what it says on the box. Compatible operating systems are as follows: Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP (SP3), Mac OS, Lion and Mountain Lion.
With fast black and white colour speeds of up to 7 black and white pages per minute and 4 colour pages per minute, the Hewlett-Packard 1010 printer gives the more expensive multifunctional printers a real run for their money. Not only that, but the HP 1010 has ‘draft print’ settings which can distribute rough ink at up to 20 pages per minute! This economical device promises no hidden consumable costs for end users and the 301 inks will definitely not stretch your budget.
Unlike many inkjet printers, the HP 1010 delivers laser-quality prints at 600 x 600dpi, which for a small, simple inkjet printer is impressive making it a valid machine for any shortlist. The superb print quality is complemented by the fantastic 301 series ink cartridges which deliver consistently outstanding results.
Designed to produce waterproof, smudge free and fade-resistant prints, the 301 ink cartridge range contains HP Thermal Inkjet technology making them suitable to use with a variety of paper varieties whilst still providing outstanding results.
The HP tri-colour 301 cartridge consumer reviews pay particular attention to the quality of this ink, describing it as ‘true colour match’ ink for photograph printing. The HP 301 Tri-colour cartridge has a respectable print yield of around 165 pages based on 5% coverage. The HP 301 Black has an average print yield of 190 pages, ideal for the home or small business user.
Instead of having to buy separate cyan, magenta and yellow cartridges, you only have to purchase the tri-pack inks, which for little money provide excellent value. And what’s more-you can also purchase the competitively priced HP 301 Black and 301 Tri-colour 2-pack which works out cheaper than buying them both separately.
In fact you can save around 47% cost per page by buying XL cartridges. The HP 301XL Tri-colour and the HP 301XL Black cartridges provide far more ink capacity than the normal 301 cartridges. With an estimated print yield of up to 480 pages (HP Black 301XL) and 330 pages (HP Tri-colour 301XL), these cartridges are a prudent investment if you are using your HP 1010 Deskjet frequently.
