I've been searching...a lot....was toying with JLs HP2540 at £35 with free Waitrose local shop delivery when this one came on my radar...the duplex (double sided) swayed me.
Daughter is re-starting Uni so there will be a lot of printing going on soon!
2 years warranty...works out at £17.50 a year for peace of mind.
Some say that HP are devious in that compatible inks don't work? Not sure if this is the case but the HP301 inks are competitively priced, thankfully!

kind of a re-post here, it was mentioned in the other thread concerning the printer but still a great deal.

i hardly ever print anything so not sure if i should bite on this and the instant ink plan which seems great value.

currently have a deskjet 2480 so i guess this would be a fairly good upgrade? ( might actually make me print some photos too )

I'm not sure about the instant ink plan...don't like to be forced into a "contract"...as for the value of it, i can't comment as I haven't researched that aspect.

Ok. just had a look at the "instant ink" plan. I guess that if you are printing off a lot of 8 x 10 photos then it is well worth enrolling as they seem to register "one page" the same as a letter/text etc. but they will obviously use a lot more colour ink and your cartridge will use up quickly. The details are here for those interested:

It isn't a contract, you can stop it any time.

I'm on the 50 pages a month Instank Ink for £1.99 with this very same printer bought from JL 2 months ago. For less than £48 I can print (if I wanted) 1200 full colour A4 photos over 2 years with peace of mind I wont have to spend any more on ink and I know I'm always using genuine quality ink.

Brilliant deal, I paid £80 for the 5200 which looks identical the other week and think the ink plan is good value. Wish I'd have waited now!

Brilliant! And with 2 yrs guarantee.

A quick reminder - anyone who bought this from John Lewis for a higher price in the last 28 days, they will refund the difference if you call or email them. It has been £60 and £50 in the last 28 days.

thnx

Thanks - finally ordered a printer. Was umming and ahhing about getting the Dell laserjet for £89 on ebuyer, or the HP5520 for £49 on Tesco (which is OOS) - but I've ordered this, £35 and two year guarantee is a bargain.

Drat just bought this last week at £49.99 for John Lewis! Any ideas if I have a chance of getting the difference refunded?

Thanks

Does this come with ink, or does that need to be bought in addition to the printer?

Oops - just retread description and see they are included. Great deal. Thanks OP

I added a £16 tshirt to get free delivery which I'll return for free, so I could get the free standard delivery on orders over £50

Hi there, my one came with 2 ink carts, black and colour, but not sure if they are full ones or not.

Phone them and ask them to do a price match, they do it with their own prices too, I saved £30 on a camera a couple of months back doing this

How much are the cheapest inks for these? (either branded or generic)

What's the difference between this and the HP2540 model the OP mentioned? thanks

so you would recommend the plan? i was skeptical but it seems a really good deal to me for a none laser printer ink usage.

it feels like a lot of jargon reading through it about how many pages per month and cost and delivering new carts when there empty.

is it really as simple as it seems?

Totally wireless? So no need for a power cable?

The description states that it uses 301 inks, and in this thread: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hp-deskjet-1510-one-colour-printer-scanner-copier-24-99-argos-1973094#post22519585

some prices for 301 inks are stated: "black cartridge at GBP9.68 and Combo pack (one black one colour) at GBP17.10"

The inks seem quite expensive to be honest

Does anyone know if it does duplex scanning? I am trying to find a solution instead of filing all the post and bills I get for organisations that insist on sending me letters..

Excellent deal. Got the currys slightly enhanced silver fascia version at that was around £80 at Christmas. Plus the inks don't dry out like in Epson printers

Try Tesco for inks - not sure if they are under clubcard boost promotion?

Re the inks drying out - how does the "plan" work if the cartridge isn't empty, but doesn't print properly? That normally the problem I have with HP Inkjets.

Sorry matey, I don't buy them for the ink plan. I bought the 301 XL inks from Tesco and printer at Christmas. Used a £20 off £100 voucher and recieved 2000 points for each ink. The sales assistant said don't buy Epson because the physical inks can dry out over time and leave the printer useless.

It's the issue of clogged nozzles within Epson printers due to low usage. With the HP printers, even with low usage you don't suffer same problems. However, the HP inks are higher but you maybe able to get a cheap deal

Hope that helps :-)

My experience with Epson printers did involve lots of situations where the printer wouldnt work due to drying out, but it was normally in the printhead.

Most HP printers have the printhead built into the cartridge, but epsons were part of the actual printer. However I think HP have started to move to the Epson way for cost reasons.

One year warranty buying direct from HP, two year guarantee from John Lewis - probably worth it for the extra few quid.

Thanks OP, one ordered for collection. Great deal as far as I am concerned.

Just assumed, as there was no delivery charges stated. May be I should have worded the question, "How much is delivery of the monthly inks?"

decent printer, paid around £50 about 2 months ago

all inclusive, as the printer is connected to the wifi the ink automatically arrives just before you need it.

It's really simple, I pay £1.99 a month by direct debit, I can cancel anytime, I can print 50 'pages' a month, doesnt matter if its a borderless A4 full colour print or a simple line of text, each sheet is counted. I'm still on my first set of cartridges (on month 2) but new ones are supposed to arrive just before the old ones run out, postage included in the £1.99, if you dont use the full allowance of prints you can roll them over to the next month (to a maximum of 50)

Any more questions just ask.

Just wanted to ask Is the 1.99 a month fixed every month even if you don’t use the printer for say 3 months

Ordered - Thank you
