Hi, I am the OP that bought this printer and now slightly annoyed by it. See my youtube video of my experience with the printer.

Nice Printer...Have been using it since 6 months and no issues..Instant ink cartridges last long...

Amazon are dropping to match the Very deal posted here yesterday. That went to -52 cold (wrongly in my opinion). Hope this does better this time, as it is a good printer for the price and qualifies for Instant Ink deal.

That £1.99 a month idea for ink looks decent enough

Is the ink

Black
or Colour?

If you don't use the 50 pages, do they roll over to 150 pages by month 3?

These Instant Ink plans sound kind of interesting.

Thanks

Expensive inks or I'd totally buy this. Heat for price though

​That is why you subscribe to instant ink. £1.99 for 50 pages per month. You can roll up to 50 pages each month as well.
We pay for 100 pages at £3.49 per month.

​I forgot to mention, when you get low on ink (actually before the printer even mentions it), HP send you a new set.

Is it one a4 classed as a page?
Seems a little unfair that you can print a full colour quality photo and It's classed the same as 2 lines of black text.

It's a fab printer and the ink subscribe is brill

If you don't use the 50 pages for 3 months do they roll over to 150 pages by month 3?

So a batch of new inks is just £1.99 a month? This includes colour?

The overview does say that, see last point in FAQ at the bottom.

Not necessary that the new ink comes every month... new ink will only be delivered when your ink is about to finish... depending on the usage it could be months before you get new cartridges. what mattes is # papers printed and the plan is around that.

You pay £1.99 per month.

You can print up to 50 pages per month. If you print even just a full stop or a full colour A4 picture, that is classed as 1 page.

A single 6x4, 7x5 or A4 are all classed as 1 page.

You can roll over a maximum of 50 pages per month. If you don't print this for 3 months, the maximum roll over is 50 pages.

You do not buy cartridges as that is what your £1.99 per month covers.

HP email you if you are get near you limit.

Go over your limit and you pay a set amount for each 10 or 20 pages (I can't remember the amount)

Other, higher usage plans are available. I pay £3.49 for 100 pages per month. You can roll up to 100 pages per month on this plan.

HP sent you new colour and black cartridges before you run out.

I think you need to look at it more like it's 4p a page , as you can only print 50 pages for £1.99 regardless of how much ink they send.

That seems to be the biggest downside. If you don't use the printer much, you're paying £X a month for nothing.

That said, you could also print 50 full colour pages for £1.99 which isn't bad at 4p a page! X)

If I remember correctly, it rolls over for 1 month only. So month 2 will be 100 pages, if you still haven't printed, month 3 will be 100 pages still.

I only print once in a blue moon but when I do print it's either one page or a 150 page document. Not sure this is value for money for me. Extra pages priced at a premium.

That said, I guess this would make me stop hating printers. The ink in my hp seems to dry up in no time, like the ink is designed to dry up quick as possible after the first use of a cartridge. When you really need to print urgently, you could avoid a lot of stress with this.

Hoping for hp competitors to undercut in the near future, printing is just too expensive.

can anyone advice whats the best printer to get i dont care about colored all i can is cheap printer to use cheap replacement inks..inkjet printers or laser printers..thanks anyone

​That's the thing, I'm in uni and I print more than 100 pages a month. Paid £30 for a new Epson and an extra £6 for 15 ink cartridges.

This was in January last year, I still haven't run out of the inks that I purchased a year and a half (almost) ago.

I'm probably a different case, compared to what the typical user normally prints.

Heat for the deal but HP software is pants...

Epson the best photo printers out there. But you say you bought extra ink , no wonder it is still going.

£2 for 50 pages is terrible. why would you not just get a laser printer

Moreover instant ink cartridges works only when the subscription is active

Not a bad printer and can't complain for the money. Google cloud print works flawlessly. one thing I found is that it doesn't like very thick photo paper so be mindful of that if you were thinking of going above day 150gsm. The need to register the paper with the printer when you change toes or sizes is also a bit of a pain. I use compatible cartridges and they are very cheap and work fine.

Actually looking at the picture I think it is slightly differently designed but the functionality etc is probably the same

​Yup, indeed. HP printers have the print head built into the cartridge so replacements are very expensive. One cartridge (remanufactured) is ~£10. Without the ink deal printing cost will shoot through the roof.

My mum has a 4520 with ink subscription for light use, it's wonderfully easy to set-up and use, if you scan often it's be better to get one with a card slot or usb so the computer doesn't have to be on but this looks really good.

Once u click Get Deal it takes you to Amazon but the price there is £58 something so pls check ????

Sorry Correction.. it's £59.82+ £8.16 Postage

When you go to Amazon the price is showing as higher BUT look into other buying options just below and you will see the deal there under other buying options :-)
