anyone know if the ink HP ink cartridges are refillable? or you have to buy a new cartridge?

I'm not sure if they are refillable. I just buy the generic ones for it.
It's a pretty handy printer, in my house we have 5 computers/laptops. If you get it make sure you download and install the lastest drivers as fixes a couple of bugs.

Doesn't make coffee. Voted cold.

What is this like compared to the Epson that came up the other day?

Is Ink supplied as part of the bundle ??

How much is ink? Probably dearer than the printer lol

Yes they are usually refillable. As it happens I have a business which does just that. Most refilling shops charge about £9 and £11 for black and colour respectively.

Bought this in Comet a couple of weeks ago for £44.99 so great deal.

Is great printer in my opinion and easy to set up. Ink doesn't seem too pricey either.

The amount of ink supplied in new printers is normally in smaller sizes. Look out for the larger cartridges available for the model. I tend to stick with HP replacements I have found some compatible brands give poor coverage and need lots of cleaning. Some printer companies may also void the warranty if you use other manufacturers inkjet cartridges.
Refilled cartridges are ok if the supplier resets the chip on the cartridge. Otherwise the printer still thinks the cartridge is empty!

Voted Hot!

Same price @ ]PC World and ]Dixons.

If you don;t want to wait for delivery, you can reserve and collect from PC World. Also, Quidco lovers won't go for Amazon. You can also R+C from Currys (currently @ £49.99 but I am sure they will price match with PCWorld)

Nice Find.

I also bought this printer when on offer at comet, A great allrounder in use in our house serving 3 laptops and 1 desktop. easy to set up and the inks are quite reasonable to buy too, Heat added.

For a Millionaire they are dead reasonable! :whistling:

28 quid for Colour and 24 quid for Black is NOT my idea of reasonable. Cheaper carts are just the low fill ones that come with the printer, about 5ml capacity ( a teaspoon of ink doesn't go far!)

I have an HP printer too, with similar priced carts, for the simple reason if they clog (and they do with intermittent use, like mine) change the cart and you are up and running straight-away, unlike printers such as Epson and Brother with fixed heads and FAR cheaper ink, but "reasonable" they are NOT! :-(

I bought this printer but paid 50 for it. Hot deal for a great printer.

Protip: it takes the "300" code cartridges (black and colour) which i beleive to be full carts in the box. The two carts new will cost about 32 quid together from most places BUT (assuming they are fully filled carts) the F2480 also takes the same carts and can be bought for less than 32 including them. Go Figure.

I assume those prices are for the 300XL carts?

Based on the fact that PC World are doing this for the same price and you can get Quidco I vote cold. I am in the market for a wireless printer but the ink for this thing is too expensive and I can't be doing with refilling the carts myself. I stick to Epson, never had any problems with them and the ink is dirt cheap.

Coffee making facility available as part of downloadable patch from HP website :whistling:

I bought this printer for £29.99 just after Christmas, PC World advertised them on their tv advert. Ended up getting it from Currys as PC World were out of stock. They had loads there.
I noticed a pile of them in Tesco's the other day for about £60 so I guess mine was a bargain.

Print quality is excellent.

Was on the point of buying, credit card in hand, until I found out the cost of the ink and this £29.99! Nah!:thinking::w00t:

i'm also looking for a half decent printer around the £40-50 mark and have been waiting for a deal to come up

wireless would be a big bonus and this seems like an ok deal but worried about ink prices

is the epson that much cheaper on inks???

whats the best price people have seen the sx515 epson for? that might be my answer rather than this one

Black 300XL £18.39

Colour 300XL £18.94
euroffice.co.uk/i/Y…008

These are the XL ones which have -3 times more ink than the cheaper ones (I think).

Also, everyone might already know this but I didnt until I started using my wireless one but the wireless works by going through your router so does not directly connect wirelessly to your pc or laptop. No big deal as probably a lot of people have wireless routers in their homes but just in case you haven't worth knowing.

HP Ink is quite expensive. Last year alone it increased by about 70% in cost. Saying that, I've used lexmark, epson and HP, and of the three, the HP lasted the longest with good quality IMO

Yep they do.

ink2u.co.uk/ is pretty good - although do a search on Amazon, and sometimes with postage you can get good deals from marketplace sellers

so £36 for the balck and colour inks seem alot compared to the £6.99 for 10 inks on epson on fleabay!

maybe i might go for the epson sx215 or maybe wait for a deal for the sx515 (wireless)

the cost of ink for hp is putting me off what looks like a decent printer however

hotukdeals.com/ite…eli

Shame it is expired now as it was the cheapest yet. Otherwise Comet have it at £69.99 but you can get 10% discount with code 10ALLPRINT and 3% quidco too. I think that is the best price atm.

Capacities as follows:

HP300 Black = 5ml
HP300XL Black = 12ml

HP300 Colour = 6ml
HP300XL Colour = 11ml

thanks for the adivce all

think i'm gonna hold out for epson

have to admit i own an hp at the moment and they are great printers but thier ink prices are now reminding me off my lexmark nightmares!!!

I bought this last week and it DOES come with the ink cartridges

Wish there was an offer on a one that prints on CDs, like the 5280!

Just ordered mine from Dixons - same price as Amazon, but 3% cashback on Quidco.

Search their site for F4580

Was looking at the HP in PC World where they have the Kodak models that show how much of a rip off HP/Epson/Canon inks are. IMO it's definitely worth spending a bit more on a Kodak printer to get inks for £6.99 and £7.99

But how do you know how much they cost per page, rather than per cartridge?

I have had 3 epson printers in 3 years, all provided so many problems. If I were you, I wouldn't go anywhere near them. Don't let the cheap generic cartridges fool you, 99% of the time, they don't work and just end up ruining the printer.

Blimey what a sweeping statement! Laughable.

HP f4580 ink cartridges seem to be a lot more expensive than say the Epson SX515

Yes. all ink is a bit of a rip-off, but Epson carts are just plastic boxes of ink, HP ones have the printer heads incorporated, and that's the difference.

All ink jets can and DO block up - those printers with fixed heads then need the heads replacing (not viable, stick it in the bin, buy a new one); those with the heads in the carts mean you replace the carts and the printer is back to working, quick and easy, but boy, you pay for the privilege in the price of the carts.

Using printers on a daily basis, it tends to be no problem, but if you use printers intermittently, fixed heads are a BIND as they may well let you down (as mine did not long back) you MIGHT be lucky and unblock them, it has worked for me in the past, but last time it didn't, the heads are carefully located to make access to soak them nigh on impossible, and it is a matter of buying a new working printer, not always convenient either. In this recent case, it caused me a big problem, so this time I bought an HP, knowing I was going to be stuck with high running costs - like everything else, it's a trade off :-(

thanks for the info nihcaj, very informative.

i had my Epson SX515 order cancelled by very.co.uk - i will be ordering this instead.
