Never buy a printer for less than 100 bones.

Wasn't this the printer that was £4.99 from HP

I purchased this a few weeks ago... Currys said it doesn't have any ink cartridges so I have to buy some... I got home, the printer comes with ink cartridges already.

None in stock nearby

Bought this model a while back - impulse buy as similar price.
Constantly disconnects from wifi.
Printer reports the ink cartridges (which are the original HP that it came) as counterfeit. HP software on my mac can no longer find scanner despite reinstalls.
More trouble than its worth despite tempting price.

Printer is fine for the money. I bought mine a month or so ago from Tesco for 39 quid and it's done it's job when required, wifi printing works perfectly.

How much are cartridges? I bet they cost a lot and last all of 5 minutes.

Great deal, but I fell for a similar one not long ago. I've had nothing but trouble with the damn thing despite being quite savvy with printers generally. It tends to behave via USB but has never been reliable on Wi-Fi. Sometimes it will connect when turned on, sometimes not, seems very flaky. If I could go back in time via a portal to 2012 in a similar method to Nicholas Lyndhurst in Goodnight Sweetheart I would spend a little more on a different printer.

Good price for the printer but the software from HP is a system hog, intrusive (you are low on ink, buy it here from HP direct) and I have found it to be unreliable (same flaky wifi issues here).
I don't think I will be buying HP again, unless you can use different drivers/software with them

Got 15 of these last year from hp a tenner a pop :-)

Inks worked out too expensive to be economical. Difficult to find generic inks

Congratulations. Here's a cookie.

My personal Opinion, I just had the officejet 4500 and it is a nightmare to install the software and drivers, you'll get all sorts of errors, I think out of 20 installation only, 2 went smooth.

Refilling: if you can afford to buy new cartridges every time yours run out, hat off, you must be pretty wealthy.But refilling with HP Cartridges is a mess, if you want to print black, you get blue, if you want to print red, you get yellow etc. And when you are so fed up that you actually get a new cartridge, it still wouldn't work.

Maintenance is also really hard as you can't get your hands in there.


Other than that, all HP printers look big and bulky, giving the impression you are paying for quality but sometimes you shouldn't believe what you see

Had this about 4 months - been fine and for the price it's very good.

HP not for you then;)

Both my two HP printers died just outside their warranties. Both had very little use. As they were premium, (expensive) models, I decided to contact HP for repair. They were not interested. Of course printers cost so little now they're not worth repairing but my experience has put me off purchasing anything from HP.

Their cartridges are expensive too!

I bought this a few months ago when it was £29.99 in Tesco. Basically, it's rubbish. The ink lasted no more than 10 large colour photographs, and the quality of the photographs I did print was too poor to display in a frame. The Wifi connectivity doesn't work and disconnects intermittently, often mid print. Avoid and just print your photos in Boots.
