Good price, especially with the Instant Ink trial. As someone who bought an HP Envy with trial a little while back though, if you'll mostly use it for documents and aren't set on having a scanner, I'd definitely splash out £20 more on the Brother laser model that was posted yesterday, which is a bargain. You'll save money and time in the long run. That said, if you'll make full use of the free ink trial (I've maxed mine out at 700 pages per month, but heard the most some models allow is 500), and want to scan and print photos (Boots' regular 99p offer probably still works out cheaper for that) this is a great deal.

Here's what Which? have to say about it if anyone's interested:

PROS: Good quality copies, wi-fi, AirPrint, Cloud Print, affordable running costs
CONS:Slow graphics and photo prints, no automatic double-sided printing
Print quality is generally good, as are printing costs, but it's very slow to print graphics pages and lacks automatic double-sided printing, which is useful to have.


What is it?
It's an all-in-one inkjet printer with wi-fi that can print, copy, scan and fax. It's the same as the HP Officejet 3830 but only available at a few selected retailers and comes with a five-month free trial to HP's Instant Ink service.

What's it great at?
For a low-cost printer it turns out prints in reasonable quality without costing a fortune in ink.

How much will it cost to print?
Some printers clean their print heads if you only print occasionally. This uses ink that never reaches the paper. This one used only 23% more ink when printing occasionally, turning the printer off between uses, compared with printing the same number of pages in one go. This means ink use is fairly frugal compared with most inkjet printers we've tested, and black text and colour prints work out cheaper than average as a result.

It's also compatible with HP's Instant Ink service, which starts from £1.99 a month for 50 pages. If you print a lot of colour pages, this may work out cheaper.

How well does it print?
Text prints look a little soft but still respectable. The best-looking prints from this machine are colour prints of text with images, and photos. As is often true with cheap-to-buy printers, printing speed is a little lacking. Text pages come through at a rate of 8.6 pages a minute, which is average. Colour images are very slow to print however - a single page takes longer than four minutes and A4 photo prints are similarly slow.

How well does it scan and copy?
The copy function is particularly impressive - colour copies look fantastic and mono copies are sharp, too. The scan function captures scanned magazine pages well, but doesn't do quite as good a job of scanned photos - they look dark and have more of a greenish tinge than the originals.

Is there anything I should watch out for?
It's a bit tricky getting into the machine to remove paper if there's a paper jam. There's also no automatic double-sided printing, so you'll need to manually flip the pages if you want to save paper.

Is there anything else I should know?
If one of the ink cartridges runs out you can keep printing using the others until you've had time to get a replacement cartridge. The printer has wi-fi, meaning you can use a range of wireless printing features. This includes Apple AirPrint for more straightforward printing from Apple devices, and Google Cloud Print for printing directly from Google programs.

Should I buy it?
For the price, this printer turns out decent-quality prints. It has a few flaws that hold it back from being a Best Buy, but it's still worth a look as a back-up option.

Hope this helps. Entering the code FREEINK during sign-up should add another month to your trial. And if anyone who does buy this wants yet ANOTHER month of free printing on top of that, they only need ask someone who's already signed up to Instant Ink for instructions.

You use it for cooking?
Remember if you are printing less than 15 pages a month you can sign up to HP instant ink program and get ink cartridges for free. If you print more than that other plans are available for a monthly fee. Depending on what you print I found it very good value for money.

This is an awesome printer.....cloud and wireless printing alone is worth the money spent on it. Just send your prints from your phone and it’s done...replacement inks are very consistent as well
Good price but it isn't a great printer. Will always have problem feeding paper, the printer will struggle to fetch them.
The quality of print goes down as you use it.
Terrible. Mine always had wireless problems..
For anyone on the fence about this one. It has a little mentioned feeder tray. You can stack multiple pages to scan or copy and they will keep feeding through. Its a function that doesnt appear to be common within this price range.

Does yours work fine? Mine pulls the paper through seemingly perfectly straight, but the scans/copies that I get out of that come out wonky at a pretty significant angle every time. I have to put the paper in the scanner against the glass manually and do it page by page to get anything that looks half decent out of it.
Ordered thanks!
I have this one. Print quality 4/5 which is good. Its good for low usage doesn’t print both side automatically. Also sign up for instant ink its very convenient and free for low usage.
Great printer, mine looked like new when I binned it, approximately 8 months later, Paper feed issues error. Word to the wise, keep your recipe.
Thinking of getting one as I still habe have my printer I got when I started in 2011! Would be good to have a wireless one. With the free ink, does this roll over if I don't use it? We don't do a huge amount of printing, maximum 10 pages a month (mostly forms etc)

There was a mono laser printer yesterday for £49.97 hotukdeals.com/dea…540 or a colour laser printer for £89 on the 17th. Which of these are you referring to? The mono is still available. There doesn't appear to be a colour laser printer that has expired? Love to see the link so I can watch for it to come up again next rotation.

Thanks in advance.

Yup



No, it actually doesn’t. Only the paid plans allow you to roll over the unused pages, with the free plan, any unused pages are lost.
What is the HP free trial about?
Don't bother with cheap inkjets. Just get a £100 laser and the toner is £15 and lasts ages.
Got this printer last year with instant ink... great printer, can print stuff straight from phone or iPad
Can you buy ink separately instead of paying monthly?
5 months free Instant Ink plus bonus month with code as others have stated, then change your plan to the Free Printing Plan if you can cope with less than 15 pages per month... sounds like a good deal to me!

Which brother printer any links


It was the £49,97 one from Amazon, now expired sadly. Next best deal on a mono laser at the moment might be this Samsung at John Lewis, with £20 cashback till the end of the month (same price elsewhere but JL give you 2 years' guarantee.) Unlike the Brother it doesn't do automatic double-sided though. This inkjet is still a great deal with the potentially 7 months' free printing though, if you'll make full use of it.

What is the HP free trial about?


It comes with a 5-month free subscription to HP Instant Ink. Instead of going out and buying cartridges when you run out, the printer tells HP when it's running low and they send you new ones by first class post. You choose a plan based on how many pages you want to print a month - like a mobile phone contract with minutes (except you can cancel any time.) The cheapest plan you can switch to after the trial is £1.99 a month, which gives you 50 pages a month. If you don't use all your allowance you can roll over up to twice your monthly allowance to the next month (so up to 100 pages on the £1.99 plan.) That's the jist of it, more details here: instantink.hpconnected.com/uk/…/l/ During the free trial you can use the 500 or 700 page plan, print to your heart's content, and then downgrade when it ends. You can also get an extra two months free - happy to give more information on that via message!

You won't be charged anything on the free 15-page plan unless you go over your allowance. For that number of pages though, it would surely be more economical to get them done at a local print shop!
Would this work on a Chromebook wirelessly?
Awesome, bought this! First time hp printer user. Those cartridges, are they cheap? Or cheaper than Canon?
