Seems a great price, but anyone know how cheap are the replacement inks? Have always used Epson in the past, primarily for the cheap inks.

not worth it! l
ooking for a new printer at moment but will not go with hp again... ours is less than 2 years old but has a nasty habit of telling me 'cartridge is missing or not inserted properly' when it's a brand new (branded hp) cartridge. only way to fix the problem is to buy a new cartridge ... has cost us a fortune!

Great price ordered thank you

ordered the HP CN216B wednesday through Amazon prime. Came Thursday and I'm pretty happy with it!

Anyone knows about the longevity of the ink? Looks like it requires 4 separate cartridges.

"The integrated print head on an HP cartridge includes an intelligent circuit"
"50% of the printing technology is contained within the cartridge itself"

So like the Lexmark, the cartridges are complex and hence costly. You probably can't get compatibles (and they would also have to be more be expensive anyway) and refilling with third party ink will give poor or unusable results.

ordered. thanks

What a bargain £69.99 at argos and that is in half price sale THANKS

Got one of the HP Photosmarts. Black cartridges are circa £6 each from amazon, but I've got great results from refilling a genuine cartridge thus far..very happy

after many hp photosmart printers, the officejet ive recently bought is much much much better than any photosmart printers. its like a different company, the difference is huge when looking at cost per page, print speeds, scan speeds, pretty much everything. The printer seems much sturdier and longer lasting and feels and looks great, even the software is great with no bloat or background processes whatsoever. Its essentially a webpage and thats not even an exaggeration, install time is barely 2 minutes. (and the printers networked and wireless), I think the only thing that gets installed is the most basic drivers and the printer icon for windows 7 a desktop icon and thats it!
id very much recommend looking at officejet printers, the prices are competetive too, i got mine around £45 after cashback deals. the absolute minimal software sells it every time for me, miles ahead of previous photosmart bloat.

(oh and they have all the fancy touchscreen, networking, faxing, two page printing and all the other stuff that these photosmarts come with...but do it better!)

I have one of the HP All in One Wireless e-Printers which can print directly from iPhone and iPad, the ink is not outrageously expensive, i picked up all 3 colour cartridges and some paper for £15.99 from play.com

Also the black ink is fairly inexpensive too, however small gripe the cartridges do not last that long, moderate amount of printing and the black goes in 2 months max, colour around 4 months.

I wouldn't bother. Reason it's so cheap... is that they can earn back the money far too easily with very expensive inks.

You really need to think about how much printing you'll do and look at the cost of printers + ink - quite often spending twice as much on the printer will easily save you a fortune over a year in replacement ink!

For anyone doing any sort of volumes (that aren't holiday snaps / photos), a cheap laser printer would be worth a look. I got one five years ago, saved a fortune since.

I echo the problems above. Expensive cartridges to replace vs cheap aftermarket ones you can get for Epson etc. Indeed, the next printer I buy will be a cheap Colour Laser, because they only use ink when you print them, not when you turn them on! Thing I hate about inkjets is they clean themselves all the time, esp. when you turn them on, and that just squirts ink away either into a little sponge or on paper depending what model you have. Lasers just heat up and print ... and none of that computer guesswork at how much toner you have left either. Shake the toner, and you've got another 100 pages.

Cold from me sorry.

I shook a five year old 6000 page third party toner only to find the toner coming out of the sides. It had only done about 500 pages and I don't know why it was not getting the toner on the paper anymore.

Went back to the old Brother 6000 page toner (which had been erroneously replaced) and started printing like new again.

Still thinking about getting a back up but I bet the ink will evaporate quicker than pound land CD-Marker pens.


------edit----------

Thinking based on £39.99 - £30. Seeing as the deal is for £39.99 after discount, thinking over, feet up, deal off.

Heat added, went for the HP CQ521B model, seems decent and if ink is an issue it was only 65 quid, can't be worst than the brother I had a few years ago.

I swapped my brother for a HP a few years back too. Crap playing football with him now

Again I would like to stress... it doesn't matter how much the printer costs it the cost of replacement ink you need to worry about.

could any one tell me if any of these printers will do duplex printing?

Thanks.

I'm sure its a good deal so I won't vote cold - but, as has been said, the cost of the ink is probably prohibitive. I had an HP before and the cartridges cost £13 a shot at their cheapest. After lots of research I went for an Epson this time. I'd advise that you research the cost of ink first or you could end up paying just as much for the ink in the first year as for the printer itself!

Ordered the Lexmark S305 5mins before this deal came up, send email to Amazon to cancel, then bought this one (CN216B) hope i made the right choice?
I also hope that Amazon refund for the Lexmark or it could be an expensive night...........

Hahaha

Inks is what they will get you on which makes this deal cold, I know cos I have one

I've ordered the HP CN216B. Been after a wireless printer for a while.

Having read reviews of the Canon Pixma MP495 and EPSON SX425W which are in the £40-50 price bracket I was looking at, I'm happy to get the HP.

Cost of ink cartridges is NOT the only consideration here - you also have to look at print quality, print speed and so on. And the HP has separate colour cartridges which is more efficient than a tri-colour cartridge.

It's only £12 for a replacement genuine black cartridge that'll do 550 pages anyway, which isn't too bad.

Just buy the none official ones. Thats what I do with my old HP printer. Got a set of 4 for around £8.99. They were not chipped mind so I had to take the chips off my official ink cartridges which came with my printer and put them into a chip extenders then put them in the printer which allowed the none official cartridges to be recognised by the printer.

You can get ones which are chipped though which saves doing this.

Its a nice printer and all but ive printed like 10-20 documents with colour ink (and only 10% of the page) and no photos and yet my ink levels indicates low oO

I've had this printer for about a year and it is good quality. One thing to be mindful of is the toner costs and that they don't last very long. HP ones cost about £60 for an XL set (which last a bit longer than standard ones). You can get generic ones from Ebay for about £8 a set but HP chip their toner cartridges and the generic ones come without chips. The answer is to prize the HP chip off and stick it on the generic one. It's a bit fiddly but it works.

Personally, I wish i'd paid the extra for a Canon with their generic toner being cheap and hassle free.

You can also get a full standard set of original HP cartridges for £20 at the moment...

amazon.co.uk/364…-21

I haven't tried them yet, but placed an order.....(assuming these printers use 364 cartridges).

My inks have lasted ages & i print loads, lots of photos etc (childminder) It does show as ink low when there is still loads left though!

Have been toying with buying the HP Premium for a few days now.
had a look at it in Staples & sales guy said that as we all know HP photo is best in HP printers but the photo paper has a barcode on the back so knows X amount of ink to use when printing.
can on still use non branded photo paper in it?

I have an HP photosmart C5180 which uses compatables but magenta/light magenta are not working at all so the Premium which uses individual inks appeals.

too late for CN216B - it's gone :-(

cant get code to work
