How much is the ink on one of these?
The ink is around £22 for a pack - one black and one tricolour.

How much is the ink on one of these?


You can get instant ink which is amazing. It is basically a contract where you pay £2 a month and can print 50 pages (for people who don’t do loads of printing, and you can pay more for more pages. Ink cartridges are sent to your door when your printer is running low and you don’t even need to do anything because when the printer is low on ink it automatically sends a request out for new cartridges. You can also control everything through the app. As you can see can’t recommend HP printers enough

I agree. I'm on the £7.99 a month plan. 300 pages,plus rollovers. I print a lot and have never run out of inks. Always arrive way ahead of needing them.
Okay. Been meaning to post this for a while now, hopefully I get some insight into this.

Two options. Option 1: Epson printer for £50, 20x (5 sets) of replacement inks for £10, and in total, £60 would get me printing ~4000 pages.
Option 2: HP printer for £20ish, Instant ink free plan gets 15 pages/month, next step up £2-50pages.

Considering a medium print load of around 100 pages a month, 1200 pages/year, wouldn't the Epson choice be more economical?

Just threw out a 4 year old Epson printer and replacing it with another because I forgot to maintain it while away, or it would've lasted way longer. So I'm looking to see what you guys think about this.

EDIT: been doing the number crunching but still unsure whether my hunches are correct. Thinking of buying a £20 HP printer and subscribing to the free plan for the lols. Also, noone's mentioned what you'd do if the printer clogs on the HP... at least it is easily resolved on an Epson.

Need to buy a printer for my daughter for university next month. Any ideas if this is better than the HP Desktop 2630 posted the other day? The 2630 looks a little more compact but maybe not so well regarded - any thoughts appreciated. Thanks
I've had a hp photosmart b210a for years now, really good printer. It uses the old hp 364 cartridges, I get the non OEM inks from eBay which are really cheap 3 sets for around £10 with 2 extra XL black ink last forever

I think Espon printer is the way to go if you can find one which you can get cheap non OEM inks for it

It is a deal for somebody who use a printer, no me as my ink try up after a while

It is more worth it for me to go to a print shop

Yes it would, if you're confident that the cheap inks will keep working; the advantage of HP's Instant Ink is reliability of printing as it uses HP ink.

I see. Thanks!
Is it possible to change plans as frequently as I want? I.e. can I start on the free ink plan and then change to occasional or moderate for a month, then switch back to free at a later date... Then repeat?!

Think so. Sounds complicated. support.hp.com/us-…29/
PS. this printer has a "35-page automatic document feeder." which could be useful if you want to scan multiple pages to a single pdf (for example.)
Cool, thanks!
And I'm guessing there is an app / site to track how many pages you've printed each month?

Yep exactly what I did. Started on the 50 page plan then changed to the 100/200(can’t remember) on my phone pretty much instantly
I'm really happy with my Instant Ink and my HP printer in general. You can get extra free Instant Ink months if you use a code from an existing user + some promotional codes that are available "out there". I don't think I can post them here though.
