Great deal especially the instant ink trial well worth it
Voted hot

I got this with Tesco, same price & the ink deal is great!

Ordered thanks

nice find op, heat added

Is this worth it without the ink trial?

Is this worth it without the ink trial?



Good printer prints on various materials labels envelopes different weights of paper. So I'd say yes

At the end of the free trial can I simply start buying my own cartridges?

You can cancel the subscription at anytime and buy your own cartridges if you wish.

Depending on your ink levels when your subscription is about to end it might be worth paying a couple of more months so that you get sent new cartridges, then you cancel.

How much is monthly subscription?

Three easy plans to choose from.
Occasional printing: £1.99/month
Moderate printing: £3.49/month
Frequent printing: £7.99/month
Shipping, ink and recycling included

Good printer with Instat Ink. Search around interwebs for referral codes to get an extra month on your trial (referral codes can't be posted here) plus theres another code for another month - HP support can add it in after I believe if you contact them via web chat.

Once you've configured your printer, you'll need to setup the trial within 7 days of 'activation'.

Sign up for the 300 pages per month till the end of your trial, go print mad during this time and then roll back to a tarrif that will reflect your typical usage - you'll be slightly stung for going over.

The cartridges you get in the box won't last too long (so I'm told, I've still got ink after a fair amount of prints), they're not completely full (there are two types of each of the colour and black cartrides - big & small). Since the printer will call home to HP (it's wireless), you shouldn't ever run out unless you do a massive batch of printing. Some others have reported that it didn't fit their letterbox, like myself, so be warned if you don't have a good postie or live in a dodgy neighbourhood with a standard sized letterbox.

The system won't let you stockpile the cartridges as its tracking your usage.

And finally, it's pages (A4, 6x4 photos, envelopes etc) that count towards your usage. ie printing a single word on a single A4 paper page is the same count as a full high quality colour photo on glossy pape (at any size - max being A4).

So whats the difference between this and the 4520 from Currys that was posted a couple of days back?

This sounds a duplicate deal for me, the Currys one was posted 3 days ago with same price, same model, and in comments was added already the argos option.

Set mine up today but was confused about this instant ink trial... can I activate it at any time or is it a onetime setup thing?

Thanks again for the hot deal

are the photos of OK quality when u print them ?

Photos are good as you expect from a printer of this price range.

So could you (if you were a bit naughty...) print lots of pages with just one word on, triggering quite a lot of ink being sent to you, then cancel at the end of the trial period?

Edited by: "phil001" 16th Feb

HP aren't dumb. The paper count is to check against your subscription. Actual ink levels reported by the printer is used for replacement. Each ink cartridge is tagged and tracked by the printer software.

No, ink levels in the cartridges are monitored, when they get low they automatically call home and HP send more.

Also the instant ink cartridges cannot be used once your subscription has lapsed even though there may be ink left in them as the printer will come up with an error message saying "No ink cartridge found"

Within 7 days of setting it up IIRC. Search net for 'HP Instant Ink referral - free month' for extra month for referal and another code for an exrta month

You can activate it anytime but you may want to do it before the starter cartridges run out. I believe you can get around 100 pages with the starters

After reading this I realised you have to return the cartridges to HP if you cancel your subscription:

======
HP Instant Ink cartridges do not work after the end of your current billing period, and you are required to return them to HP. To continue printing after your billing cycle ends, make sure you have standard replacement ink cartridges ready to use in your printer.
======
http://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c03767641
======

I don't think they enforce the return but the printer is clever enough to recognise what cartridge is inserted. Anyone not wishing to continue after the free trial period should utilise the full quota by printing photos for their albums etc.

Already got this while looking at alternatives to a recent HP Envy deal posted here. Beware that Argos might try to offload the 4520 on you upon collection. Whilst they take the same cartridge, they are in fact two separate SKU codes.

Depending on your ink levels when your subscription is about to end it might be worth paying a couple of more months so that you get sent new cartridges, then you cancel.



Cancelling after you receive a new set of cartridges makes no difference...
When using 'instant ink' cartridges your printer must be connected to the internet.
(1) If your printer is not connected to the internet they will not print.
(2) The very second you cancel your subscription to instant ink, the cartridges will stop working. (Or they will stop working at the end of your billing period depending on if you cancel it instantly or at the end of the billing cycle)

Of course, this only affects cartridges that are sent as part of the 'instant ink' subscription.
If using normal cartridges you don;t have to be connected to the internet etc.

Same here, which should come with 5 months worth of Free ink I believe.

Not opened it yet but I'm guessing there is a promo voucher inside?

In my case the free trial was just part of setting up the printer. I did not need to add a promo voucher. Other people have reported that the printer will print a code to use, but in my case this did not happen. Using a referral code would give you one month extra for the free trial.

​I don't know what to expect from a printer this priced lol - kinda why I asked ....

Photo quality is good but not amazing but it mainly depends on quality of paper
I had some photo paper where the ink would not dry and some where it came off and some where it caused rippling
Buy quality and it's perfect
It also does duplex
Bad news-
Do be aware the printer is slow and the shipping of replacement inks is about 7-10 days from when it tells you levels are low and you would be mad not to continue with a basic ink supply at the end of the trial

​According to Hp, the 4520, 4523, 4524 and 4527 are all the same and the functionality is identical.

Big difference for me is that I have never ever been able to actually find stock near me of any of the currys printer offers, so this deal is appreciated 'cause all my local Argos have stock.

Bought and had delivered yesterday. Nice printer. Tempted by Instant Ink - could make use of the 300 page plan as a photographer, could be a great deal. Thanks OP.

It's the same printer. Just a way to give some retailers 'exclusive' models, to avoid price matching etc.

Thanks OP

Bought this today and it came with the 4 months free + used codes so ended up with 6 months free ink.
