Saw this advertised last night on telly and collected this morning. It's perfect for me as I'm off to uni at the end of the summer and it is really small so won't take up tons of space and it looks nicer than normal printers too. But the main reason I picked it is because it gives you 15 free prints every month which will be great for me and save me a fortune on ink cartridges.

Anyone know if this can be used with a Chromebook? I'm also a bit suspicious about the "instant ink" contract with 15 free pages per month, it all seems a bit too good to be true and I'm wondering what the catch is.

catch is, it is a subscription plan requiring credit card details so the moment you print more than 15 in a month you will get charged.

I use instant ink from a deal i bought a few months ago and it asks you before it charges you anything so you don't ever pay for something you don't agree to if that makes sense? You can use this with a chromebook too as I use it with mine but it's a little bit complicated. Basically you have to download the HP Print for Chrome app and then register your printer on google cloud print

Thanks for the info. I'm thinking of getting this for my non-techy parents - how good is it at automatically reconnecting to the wireless network after having been powered off for a couple of weeks? Anything less than faultless would be a dealbuster for them!

this is a great deal

Would this be part of a subscription deal where you have to order a month's print and you get 15 free prints on top of that .
I dunno , I'm looking for the catch as well :)

Just bought one. Its a voucher for 1 year "free" trial of HP Ink. Will only be charged IF you go over the 15 pages.

TBH, I've not seen this business model in the home market before and even the entry level £1.99 per month seems a good deal for people who don't print much.

My mother prints a few photos of the grandkids every month and so the nozzle heads require cleaning fairly regularly (and that's very wasteful on ink). I have gone through the T&C's and there aren't any gotchas. Was expecting to see something like 15 free pages based on 5% coverage etc, nothing

Unused pages are NOT rolled over in the free plan (they are on the paid plans)
HP will charge Participant overage fees in the amount of £1.00 (“Excess Fees”) for each additional set of 10 pages (“Overage Pages”).

No you don't have to buy anything upfront but you do have to put in your payment details so that if you go over 15 prints then you will be charged but it doesn't do that without your confirmation. It says you have to keep the printer connected to your wifi though so HP makes sure you don't run out of ink.

I can see it says 'Free Printing for the Lifetime' in Currys page. Someone has commented above it has only 1 year free printing.
Does it say anywhere else, it is Free for Life?

I'm a bit confused about the £1.99 a month thing. Do you need to pay this every month with this printer if you print fewer than 15 sheets?

When you set up the printer it tells you it is free every month as long as you don't go over the 15 prints. I think the year of printing is on the white version which is £59

I got the option for the £1.99 plan when I set up the printer but that gives you 50 pages every month. If you go for the 15 then you don't pay anything

I recently bought a HP printer with the instant ink offer and I am very pleased with it so far, the first lot of inks were sent out a day after registering and another set 2 weeks later.
When signing up to the instant ink you can get an extra month free by using the code FREEINK during setup and then another free month by using a referral code from an existing instant ink subscriber, which is what I did.
Two other people then used my referral code to get a free month for themselves and it also gave me 2 extra free months.

Thanks , I missed that one, just tried it with 10 prints

No - clearly several other people voted cold between you opening the thread and voting hot.

A mate of mine said he's got HP Instant ink, HP64 are the cartridges, but it won't accept them if you don't use them in the month or something like that. I'll have to ask him to clarify, but it sounded to me that the ink cart has a limited lifespan and the printer will reject it so you can't give it to some one else.
#24
Cold as only 15 prints and expensive on any more. One print will be aligning heads, so a maximum of 14 in the first month. Must be connected to the Internet as well.

I am on the 7.99 package for 300 pages, much better value. Look for printers with a long trial on this. Saves money in the long run and you can downgrade to lower plans at any time.

From the website seems the printing rolls over month to month
Your HP printer will automatically make an order for replacement ink when it is needed. Any unused pages roll over to the next month so you're never losing out on ink. If you're a demanding user who needs more ink, then you can top up the service for additional ink usage.

HP's Instant Ink cartridges hold more ink than standard cartridges, so you can print photos and more without needing to replace as often. The service is based on how many pages you print and not the amount of ink. You can choose packages which give you 50, 100 or 300 pages per month. The ink, shipping and cartridge recycling are all included in the price at no extra cost.
____________________________________________________ Save up to 70% on Ink costs with HP Instant. Ink is automatically ordered by your printer when you are running low and delivered to your door. Plans start from £1.99 per month for 50 pages.

My HP WiFi printer gets switched off regularly sometimes even for several weeks and it just reconnects itself.

Depends on how many people you're blackmailing.

this is a brilliant idea. I print almost everything at work, but there would be the occasional document I need to print, so I’d never go over 15 pages. Heat from me

People are truly suckers these days. I have no idea why anyone would think that paying for printing monthly might be a good idea. There was nothing wrong with buying ink or toner as and when you needed it. This is just a way to squeeze more money out of bone idle consumers.

Horses for courses. I have an hp 8610 and my cartridges were all nearly empty. It has 3 colours plus black so 4 carts all for £15-20 each. I have tried compatibles and they all fail or have been poor quality.

So I signed up for the £1.99 a month plan. For the same price as buying 4 cartridges for a minimum of £60, I get 30 months of printing, 50 pages each month. And I don't have to shell out £60-80 upfront.

If I change my printer in the meantime I just cancel the subscription. Or if the printer breaks I don't lose the remaining ink in the cartridges.

Nonsense. I'm on instant ink £3.49 a month as I print a fair bit for my home business, and my ink costs have more than halved.

Plus the convinince of not having to go out to buy ink last minute when you've failed to realize you're running low... plus the fact all your documents can be reprinted as the server keeps copies of them...

It's great.

Correct ! 15 pages is very little... although I never managed to use up all 300 (I guess my usage would be around 100-150 if I print all crap)

But I got 5 month free trial + 1 month referral ... so live long trial

Just saw your comment and wondered whether your mum would make use of something like the Freeprints app on android/iOS - depending on whether she's printing huge pics or if 6x4 is enough but they do 45 prints per month for free at 6x4 and you're only paying postage. I did 40 the first month and have struggled to find anything I want prints of. Although to be fair I don't have grandkids X)

Does this have to be set-up/registered straight away to get the free printing? Bought a new place but won't be moving in for a few months. Wondering if the offer will still work then?

I would use a cable to ensure it stays usable for your folks. I bought one of these a couple months ago with free instant ink and it kept losing the connection. Once I used a cable it was fine and could still communicate with HP

That's good that the server keeps copies of them. But in my businesd I wouldn't trust a third party to keep copies of sensitive documents. And my laser printer gives me plenty of warning if toner is running low allowing me plenty of time to.order a replacement.

I think it tells you that the offer is only available during set up so I guess as long as you don't set it up straight away you will be fine to still get the offer x

I second that, I got a Dell one for £40-£50 last year, I don't do a lot of printing, just the odd document, and I was sick and tired of deskjet printers that never work when you want them unless you use them frequently with official ink. The dell laser sits dormant covered in dust, but when I need to print it prints flawlessly first time.

What's the difference between this and 3720 model number?
Also, can you carry over unused pages, month after month, so if I didn't print for 3 months would I have stored 45 pages?
And do you have the option to upgrade to the £1.99 plan? If so when cancelling the plan. Do you still have the lifetime 15 pages per month?
