For the birds
Strengths: Unfortunately, none
Weakness: Cannot Copy, Cannot Fax
Gets paper jams when copying, gets paper james when faxing, communications errors galore, sends half pages when faxing, detects no dial tone when there is a dialtone

How much toner is left?
Strengths: As a basic FAX it does well - I'd buy it again except for one problem.
Weakness: There is no way to tell from the control panel or the toolbox application when the toner is running low. I couldn't believe this but HP support confirmed it. You need to check the page count & guess.
We use this in an office that gets faxes over the weekend - our office manager was not happy when she had to call a bunch of folks back because the toner cartridge ran out. We can only guesstimate based on average page count since last change. Too bad - it's a good machine otherwise.

Works with my Linux
Strengths: Both printing and scanning works well with my Linux OS. But note that the MS and Mac software that came with it will not work with Linux.
Weakness: None to note so far other than what seems to me to be relatively expensive consumables. Unlike some you cannot just buy a new toner cartridge. It is a unit with the drum I believe
I have not yet tried the fax function. Whether or not that would work well with my Linux software I do not know. I will probably buy another one to go with another computer I have.

Cant beat it for the price
Strengths: Fast, will do everything that you would need in a small office. Laser vs the price of ink. Very good all around printer.
Weakness: none yet
Impressive little printer. The printer was bought to replace a fax and a business ink jet. Ink was costing way to much. The printer is very quick and fax function works very well. The copy function works great for a quick copy. No waiting for the copier to be free if you need a copy. We use it in a office for a person who needs access to a fax and make limited copies. For the money, you cant beat...

Hp Laser Jet 3050 support
Weakness: Fax formatter board goes bad quickly. Copies are blurry.
Faxes are received as bar codes. HP knows there is a problem with the formatter board but it took several calls to customer support for the problem to be acknowledged. To fix this under warranty, HP wants to charge $50 for a refurbished copier sent overnight. I want the copier repaired at no cost at the local repair center but HP will not send the part. The part is backordered with a delivery...
