Pagewide is HP's top of the range Inkjet models so you can assume they're decent in most respects. They do have large catridges though, so I'd be cautious about buying one if you're printing less than a few hundred pages a month.

Or could try the 'instant ink' programme?
Any ideas on 3rd party cartridges?
Does it do duplex?
Also can you run just on black and white?

Don't really understand the cashback. At the top of the voucher it's says £30, and yet at the bottom it says £40?
Is this £40 back from Box and £30 from HP? If so this is a stonking deal.

Not sure what "decent in most respects." means. For example what is the photo quality? Can you print on 6X4. Does it scan and if so what is the quality etc etc.
Just get a laser printer and be done with all this ink drying nonsense!

This is the printer-only version, the 377dw is the multifunction version with a scanner.

The photo quality compared with what? Other office machines? Dedicated photo printers? Lasers?

Which? gave the 377dw the full 5* for photo quality, so I'd expect this version to be good too.

Supported media sizes from HP's website:
Tray 1: 76 x 127 to 216 x 356 mm
Tray 2: 102 x 210 to 216 x 297 mm

So it does do 150x100 or 6"x4".

Then try looking for independent reviews
I'd steer clear of HP printers after they blocked the use of 3rd party inks. They fixed it for some models, but not others, with no apology
I have one of these and looked into third party inks. It is possible to buy bulk ink and refill the starter cartridges, which is then very economical, although a bit of a faff. Bearing in mind how many pages you can print from the starter cartridges, without even doing that, this is an exceptionally economical printer if you need to print a reasonable number of colour pages each month.

What a xxxx. Do you think for a second I wouldn't have already done that given my previous comments.

I believe hp cartridges have chips on them that communicate with the printer.
The actual amount of ink in the cartridge has no bearing on the cartridge telling the printer it's done. And conveniently rendering refilling yourself impossible.

From the Inkowl website:

NOTE about refilling original HP 970/971/980 series ink cartridges:
Although the printer will not display the ink level of an original HP cartridge that has been refilled, the printer will not refuse to print unless there is physically no ink remaining in the cartridge. However, if ever a cartridge does become physically completely empty, the printer will display an "Ink Cartridge Depleted" error and refuse to print, even once you refill that cartridge. If this occurs, the only way to reuse that first cartridge is to install a different one, close the cartridge cover, and then reinstall the first. The second cartridge can be a brand-new original cartridge or a refilled cartridge. On the other hand, if you're using our Refillable Cartridges, there is no problem, since you will have your original HP set to use as a second. However, if you do plan on refilling your originals, and you only have access to one set of ink cartridges, it will be essential to carefully monitor the amount of ink in the cartridges to prevent them from ever running dry.

NOTE about refilling HP 972/973/974/975/976/981 series ink cartridges:
In order to successfully refill these printers, it is absolutely essential to own two sets of cartridges. The printer will not accept the use of a single cartridge for longer than its intended life. Once a cartridge becomes "Depleted", remove it and install the second cartridge. The second cartridge can be a brand-new original cartridge or a different refilled cartridge. Once that second cartridge becomes "Depleted", you can reinstall the first cartridge. Note that you can only refill these models once they have run completely dry, and the "Cartridge Depleted" message has appeared onscreen.


As I said, it's a faff, but apparently it can be done.

The alternative is to do what I did, namely buy a spare one of these for £60 and sell it on ebay, minus the ink cartridges. That gets you a complete set of starter cartridges for about £30, whcih works out at about 1p per colour page.
These cartridges are marked 913, by the way, but Inkowl say the above procedure works.
