Just spotted this great deal on this printer, so I've just ordered it myself.

This is normally around £250 and even ebuyer has this for £280 so this is a bargain for anyone looking for a A3+ sized photo printer.

It's currently on offer for £129.99 with free delivery
Enter CHRISTMAS10 code for 10% off = £116.99
Quido is 9% on NET VAT price, for today (not sure for how long) = -£9 = £107.99



The only negative I can see is that it has a Tri-Colour catridge instead of individual cartridges as in the much more expensive printers. This means when one colour runs out you have to replace the entire cartridge.

I have not voted either way, but a set of cartridges cost more than the printer. Even compatibles are expensive. I once made the mistake of purchasing a photosmart printer but got shut of it when I went to buy ink!:gift:

ink is expensive, its where they make their margins. Now places like PCW and so on will be expensive for this ink, 343 probably £20, 344 about £32, however shop online and you will find these much cheaper. Even through HP direct.

Also remember, your getting a tri colour cartridge. With all colour in. So you don't need to go buying, Cyan, Megenta, Yellow individually, which could cost you £7 each etc.

So its not too bad, just ink, in general is expensive.

HP 343 for £13 & HP 344 for £18 here

I've seen them cheaper if you really shop around on the net so not as bad as some might think.

Edit: Another place for HP 344 for £16

Certainly cheaper than the cost of the printer ;-)

It is very bad for photos, because it uses an additional photo cartridge, this works out REALLY expensive.

Not bad for printing normal stuff on A3 though, but photos WILL be expensive.

And just fwiw, separate cmy is ALWAYS cheaper, because the individual cartridges have more ink together than one colour one, and you don't have to chuck away the whole lot when you've just been printing in blue (which happens a lot).

You are right to say it's more expensive to run than others.

The Epson 1400 costs more than double of this printer and has 6 individual 11ml cartridges @ £9 per cartridge which works out at £0.82 per ml where as this printer uses 1 14ml Tri colour cartridge @ £17 which works out @ £1.21 per ml.

Like I said earlier, it suits me as I will only print occasionally and from reading owner comments of some of the other brands, particularly Epson, are more prone to clogging heads with infrequent use where as the HP printer incorporates a new head with each cartridge.


Just checked my order and it seems to be on back order when I track my order even though it says it's in stock for home delivery!?

One thing to bear in mind is how much ink your print actually USES. Its all well and good having a cartridge with 20ml of ink say, however if it wastes half of this, and a HP cartridge uses 95% of its cartridge then its much more efficient. And trust me, from independent tests Epson waste up to 50% of their cartridge doing clean cycles etc. If you have an old epson, dab your finger in the bottom (sponge bit) at the bottom of the printer.

Also yes, heads are inbuilt to HP cartridges, which is very important.

Photo cartridge combined with 343 cartridge (the smaller colour) will give you about 100 - 120 6x4 prints, so A3 probably talking about 20... something like that. however buy the 344 cartridge and you get twice as much ink for a little more in price.

I have read that HP's own Premium Plus paper is not the best for this printer and read some owner comments stating that Fuji Premium paper gives better results on this printer.

I'm also not too concerned with print speed either as it's only for personal low volume use.

I think at this price point, my expectations are firmly on the ground and after reading many owner comments, it certainly produces excellent pictures.

Just got a mail to say mines been dispatched. The proof is in the pudding I guess.

Received the printer last Thursday and did my first A3 photo print last night and all I can say is WOW!

It also included free HP Premium Plus A3 photo paper samples (2xGloss and 2xSatin)

The picture is equal to a lab print in my opinion and is now framed on the wall. I'm very happy! :thumbsup:

Deal is still on for anyone interested :-D
