Just seen this on Currys & PC World websites -best price in the market from what I can see on this printer. It was £49.99 now £35 which is quite a good save for a printer of this value. Plus it has 5 months free trial of HP Instant Ink which you can cancel when the trial is up (think Netflix). Basically if you opted for the 300 pages per month plan then you would be getting £40 worth of ink so this is a BARGAIN! Reckon this will sell fast so if you are looking for a printer, this looks to be a cracker!

£3.50 cashback available via QUIDCO until Sunday too

The printer has to be connected to WiFi and sends a notification to HP to send more ink out. I've only had one set of cartridges in a few months but not a heavy user. You don't get new ink each month unless your current cartridges are running low

Remember!
These come with a set of regular ink cartridges in the box IN ADDITION to the 5 month Instant Ink trial.
I'm not sure if you can defer the start date of the trial, but I'd recommend using up the initial ink cartridges before starting the trial to get the best value.
In response to the question above, when you're using Instant Ink (either on a trial or paid), the printer tells HP when you're going to need cartridges and HP then sends them out before the Instant Ink cartridges have run out, so you aren't left without ink.
With Instant Ink, the pages you print can be absolutely anything - it can be just a few lines of text printed on an A4 piece of paper, or perhaps even a full resolution A4 photo printed on quality photo paper. The amount of ink you use doesn't matter at all, it only counts the pages used. This is why when using the trial it's best to opt for the plan with the highest pages per month, then downgrade shortly before it ends.
if it goes on pages and not ink used, surely you could select lowest number of pages, print out a full stop on the bottom edge of each page then stockpile the ink they send you? or am i missing something?
You're misinterpreting it..
You can print 500 pages per month, but HP only. Send cartridges when they physically run out. So all they'd send you is a black cart when yours ran out to sustain your dot printing.
I still dont understand.

You get an allowance of 500 pages per month - this isn't equated to a certain number of cartridges, it's purely pages.

Month 1: Print 500 pages with just a "." - Black cart @ 90% left
Month 2: Print 500 pages with just a "." - Black cart @ 80% left
Month 3: Print 500 pages with just a "." - Black cart @ 70% left
Month 4: Print 500 pages with just a "." - Black cart @ 60% left
Month 5: Print 500 pages with just a "." - Black cart @ 50% left

You'll never be sent a new cart, because you haven't run out.

Now, in this example, 500 colour photos uses 40% of the black cartridge, and 60% of the colour:

Month 1: print 500 colour photos: Black 60%, Colours 40% left
Month 2: print 500 colour photos, Black 20%, Colours 80% left (they will have sent a new colour cart when your colour one was getting low)
Month 3: print 500 colour photos, Black 80%, colours 20% left (they will have sent a new black cart when your colour one was getting low)

etc etc etc.

Does this printer come with Bluetooth, fax machine and photocopier as I need a 3-1 printer which will save me the space
Can I print photos from my iPhone through wifi i need small pictures not big A4 paper.
What happens after the 5 month ink and cartridge supply stops do we buy ourselves or they still supply.
How much are the cartridges and inks is it cheaper to buy it myself as I don't do too much printing so won't be using it that much just print photos

Would you like us to cook you some tea as well?

sorry if I sound dense but I just want to double check I have this right. they send you out enough ink every month so you can print out 300 items? until you cancel? you get it free for 5 months? so essentially 1500 free prints?

Yes you just register when you set up your printer and then manage your subscription from your PC. So you can drop down if you are receiving too much ink. They do it on pages so it means you can print as much colour or photos as you like :)

My current printer is an Epson and its the worst printer Ive ever had. If you run out of one colour, you can't do any printing, not even in black and white. Are all printers like this now? My old HP printers rarely had working colour in them but I could still print in black and white.

You can still print black and white without colour - I have an instant ink printer though now so it sends me more ink before i run out :)

It comes with two cartridges in the box AND the Instant Ink trial card which has a code for five months' worth of ink. They don't refill cartridges but send out replacement cartridges when your current Instant Ink ones run low.

I have an Epson with large ink reservoirs that I bought in far east. I can top up each colour with about 200mls of ink. Two years now without a top up. I read that printer ink is one of the most expensive substances on earth. Nothing short of scandalous.

It doesn't work like that. Once the ink cartridge in the printer reaches a certain level, they'll send out a new cartridge (either black or colour, or both if both are running low). You'll never get to accumulate a 'stockpile', as HP knows how much ink is left in the existing cartridges.

Plus I'm pretty sure that if you cease to subscribe to HP Instant Ink, the Instant Ink cartridges will refuse to print any more pages until you subscribe again. These cartridges are different to regular ones you find in the shops.

You pay for 50 pages, so you if you use this up printing full stops, you then have to pay for extra prints.
For example on the £1.99 a month plan, each additional 15 pages costs £1.
They won't send out new ink until you have nearly run out.
You are paying for a quantity of prints, not ink, in effect.

As moneybag and I have stated above...

You get two regular ink cartridges in the box. These are not Instant Ink cartridges. You can either use them straight away or keep them for emergencies.

You also get a card with a 5 month Instant Ink code. This code can be used on any Instant Ink plan, even the most expensive one which allows for 300 pages to be printed per month.

When you subscribe to Instant Ink (either using the 5 month trial or paying for a subscription), HP sends you special Instant Ink cartridges which you install into your printer. These are different to regular cartridges.

Every month you are allowed to print up to the maximum amount of pages as detailed in your plan. If you opted for the 300 pages plan, you can only print 300 pages per month as part of the plan, and you'll have to pay extra if you wish to print more.

You can print anything you want, be it a simple letter or a high quality photo.

The printer communicates automatically with HP when the ink is about to run low. HP then posts you more Instant Ink to use when the Instank Ink cartridges in the printer run out.

The Instant Ink cartridges are sent out at no cost to you - it's all part of the service.

Exactly - just think of a subscription service. Cheaper cost of ink because you are subscribed and saves you having to go to the shops to buy more as HP will send it to you. Obviously this won't suit everyone as not everyone likes signing up to stuff or doesn't print enough but for me it's great. Nothing more annoying than having to go the shop because you've run out of ink mid-work!
