Someone has to remind people - so as I'm first here I'll do it : the true cost of these printers is in the cost of the INK - which as a HP printer will require Hewlett Packard cartridges at HP prices (ie for us oldies who remember the teminology, you almost need to take out a HP agreement to pay for!).

AND just in case people don't realise a USB cable SHOULD cost 50p-£1.50 and NOT £5-£15.

What MIGHT be interesting to people is what HP CARTRIDGES are included with the printer - as they may well be worth more by themselves - ie making this a good buy for people who throw away the actual printer - but do be wary even on that score as many printer makers include 'starter' cartridges rather than 'normal' cartridges - eg I had a £300 laser printer "bargain" ten years back that had a 1000 page cartridge with it, rather than the "normal" 2500 page one.

I usually buy a new printer whenever my ink runs out! Looks like I may be buying this now. :thumbsup:

What are you on about MK? HP is no different from Epsom etc. you can pick up cone or cheap originals off eBay.

Really ? Well I buy Epson compatible new inks from major Internet retailers for between £0.99-£2.49 delivered - have never ever noticed a HP cartridge at anything like that price, or indeed any HP compatibles at all, only HP refilled ones.

This HP Deskjet D1460 takes HP 21 and HP 22 cartridges. Doing a search on eBay for a HP 21 cartridge buy it now reveals £3.99 + £4.99 P&P as the cheapest, with £5.75 being the more realistic lowest price cartridge "re-manufactured".

Could be interested in one of these myself.
Has anyone bought one, and can they confirm if it has 'proper'cartridges ( ie full) or does it come with 'starter' (ie partly filled) ones?
thanks

There is a positive review on the Comet website (where you can reserve online before spending time going to store) saying they are "part filled starter cartridges". (The other review is a negative one moaning it came without a USB cable, which is 100% clear from the website, and hopefully from the box too - and please DONT be suckered into giving them £9.99, reduced from £14.99 for a USB cable!)

:thumbsup:
thanks for that.
No chance of me getting ripped off on the usb cables tho - recently got 3 good quality ones form Home Bargains fopr 99p.

I can confirm they come with starter cartridges as I have the printer myself.

However, a little warning - official standard HP 21 cartridges only come with approx. 5ml of ink, whereby, third party compatibles come with around 20ml.

Thanks. I've reserved one for my Sons bedroom. Takes HP 21 and HP 22 ink I believe.

HP Cartrages include the print head, Epson are only inc cartrages and the print head stays in the pinter. So when ever you buy a HP cartrage is you replace the print head too.

Good price just for the carts.

Loving the whole environmentally friendly approach to ink replacements :shock:!

I buy genuine carts for my old Epson at about £3 a pop, I find that to be good value so you won't see me rushing to buy a new printer any time soon.

i have this printer which i bought from amazon for £18 as you can usually get it for around £20. The cartridges it comes with are 5ml ones which are small but that it the standard size for this printer if you buy the official hp cartridges. I STRONGLY reccommend getting remanufactured cartridges as these have a 20ml capacity and you can get them for £6 to £8 delivered for the black. So four times the ink. Having said that it is a fantastic little printer. Good quality and fast printing. Great deal. just don't be ripped off by tiny capacity cartridges.:thumbsup:

It's shocking that printers have become a disposable item, something needs to be done to stop so many perfectly good printers going to landfill.

Here is a good website that sells the ink for this printer:thumbsup:

What, like the manufatcturers reducing the cost of the ink cartridges? :oops:

Try replacing a print head on an Epson, costs less to simply replace the whole thing with a new bit of kit (dump the old one) even though the print head itself is very small relative to the whole unit.

Madness.

Exactly my point in raising for the less aware that INK to feed these printers is the real cost - at that site a pair of remanufactured would be £15.90 = more than the initial 'bargain' printer, with its pair of (apparently) starter cartridges.

I was/am not criticising the bargain nature of the printer - just that purchasers SHOULD be aware that feeding it with ink is not going to be 'cheap', nor as cheap as feeding some other printers with ink.

Are you guys sure it comes with 2 cartridges in the box. I know a lot of cheap HP come with colour, and make black from mixing. I'm sure it has slots for two carts but are both supplied??

Wow - the plot gets thicker and thicker.
Yes the D1460 details on the HP website do say for setup:
" NOTE: The black ink cartridge might not be included with the product. It is not required to operate the product. "
though the one user review on the Comet website does say "carts":
"Even better, three months after my purchase I'm still using the part-filled starter ink carts that came with the machine"

First time post, as said before get some great deals on printer but you do have to be careful, Lexmark fantastically cheap but cartridge dead expensive, can be same with some HP. I work for a refill company call Cartridge World so we hear lots from people looking at headline price not on-going printing. If you want a really good value printer look for Brother DCP 135, recently on sale at Rymans for £39.99

theres this one as well if you want a all in one hotukdeals.com/ite…r-/
uses the same ink as this one as well.

just bought a 1870 (yesterday) that came with a starter cart (positive it's the same as the 1460), it lasted approx 200-220 pages

bought a re-filler kit from tesco's for about £5 a few months ago, and just refill the starter cartridge on to my 3rd refill - heavy printing

Used the cheapo Tesco refill kit in my epson and my dads HP1460 printer. Does the job no probs and makes this printer economical. So voting this hot.

We have one of these and it does the job ok for my kids, paid £20 for mine so tis is a bargain, only place I could find cheaper replacement ink is Tesco own brand compatable at about £10.
Voted hot

Hi could I ask where do you get your ink from please? Its a lot cheaper than where I buy from.
thanks

i always find samsung mono lasers (their colours ones arent so good) are best value...their starters cartridges last ages......

i bought my samsung ml-3051n network laser last year for a bargain £50...print quality is excellent for the price and the cart that came with it has been good for at laest 5000 pages so far and is still about 1/3 full (id id have a samsung ml1520 - great printer but carts are only good for about 2000-3000 pages) !!

I also have an HP officejet 7210 inkjet all-in-one which gets reasonable use for photocopying and colour prints but the samsung is the workhorse as its much cheaper to run....if you have the space get a mono laser printer...compared to an inkjet (and if you dont mind mono prints) the printer will pay for itself in no time...generally inkjet carts last an average 400 pages, lasers carts last an average 5000....laser carts costs vary but for monos are at worst double the cost of inkjets, colour lasers are very very exp to run though (carts can be £500+ per set)

Seems a good price for a printer, heat added x

Tesco value ink refill kit does the job. Just inject the ink into the cartridge (comes with instructions and syringe). Think colour is around about £6 and black about £4, but you'll get 3-4 refills with that. :thumbsup:

A cable is just over £2 in Argos.

Ok someone has to say it...... Some of the non branded inks do not last on the paper very long, they fade. So if doing photographs or important things that you will be keeping for a long time please beware of the "cheaper" inks

Personally I think if your mainly writing letters and text generally than a mono laser is the best option. Reliable and dirt cheap to run. The best thing about HP printers is they are about the most reliable because they have the printhead in the cartridge. Other printers tend to have problems later on especially if using cheap compatibles without the additional printhead lubricant oil in the ink. They end up blocking printheads and then the printer is only good for landfill unless you want to have a grand session trying to unblock it with neat alcohol etc.
