I suspect the cost of replacement HP cartridges will certainly make it a disposable item... :w00t:

do you not have to spend £50 or more to get the voucher code to work....I take it this is the voucher code for the new catalogue...

is that not reasonable for 300 pages?

When compared to other manufacturers' models having cartridge sets easily available for under £10, definitely not.
Most HP, Lexmark, Olivetti and similar models tend to have difficult to find cheap printer food compared to Epson or Canon models. Depends if users absolutely must have original carts or much better value compatibles.
Not attempting to draw any direct compaison to this HP al-in-one, but an example of an Epson all-in-one with easily available cheap carts under £10 / set (especially from that well-known auction site) would be Epson SX200 under £40 from many outlets including ]Argos.
Simple maths says the Epson ownership costs would be one third of the HP ownership costs.
Don't want to be drawn into any extended debate about original carts compared to compaitble options and cost per page etc - it's been debated to death on this site many times before.
Suggest great price for the HP printer, but poor overall value for most users when compared to other manufacturers' models.

The cartridges that come with printers are more empty than full....

Not checked any specs for this particular model, but carts supplied with inkjet models are frequently standard capacity.
Reduced-capacity or "starter" options tend to be applicable to laser models' toner only.

could these cartridges be refilled at your local ink center?

this webpage suggests refills are possible, although refill by post would mean the printer would be unavailable for a few days so maybe only practical for local refill:

Actual cart capacity or use of "introductory" carts is almost always stated on exterior packaging of HP items, as mentioned burried in ]this HP webpage.
Also from same page:
"Some HP inkjet printers use ink from the first cartridges installed for printer start up"
which suggests that some of the ink in the first installed carts may be used to "charge" the system, hence giving the impression of lower capacity for that first set. This seems reasonable rather than any suggestion of sharp practice.

I bought this printer about a year ago in comet for £30 :thumbsup: its a good printer the cartridges you get with it last quite long too , its only now i might have to consider getting new colour ones .

CISS System or Jet Tec 3rd party cartridges. Been using the Jet Tec cartridges in my canon ip4200. A full set for £30 if I remember correctly.

my brother bought this yesterday from Tesco and I almost broke it putting the cartridges in! Thought it was faulty but it was me ...... definitely different to my HP all in one printer.

Dont forget that printers need to be kept at their ambient temperature, therefore you can also help speed up the global warming situation:thumbsup:

Disposable printers were the Dell £9.99 ones a while back, I am still working my way through them and I have not needed to buy ink for years!

This printer or the Epson SX200?

I'd go for the Epson one. Computable cartridges from ukdvdr are 90p each. It's a no brainer IMO.
