I think it might be the same printer, but it confusingly has two product ID's for some reason.

I bought this when it dropped down to £100 and so far it's been a decent printer, conveniently you can get away with just installing the driver and using shares for the scanner to avoid the HP shovelware. The XL cartridges are reasonably priced at a tenner for the individual colours and 15 for the XL black (which is bigger) plus the LCD display is useful for showing any errors and how to reload cartridges.


ordered one...fingers crossed I've made a good choice.

It is a good printer. The only thing to perhaps be aware of is that the HP ink cartridges are chipped, which makes it difficult to use unbranded generic ones. You can get them on ebay but you need to remove the original chip and stick it on the new generic one. I haven't tried it myself but it sounds quite easy, although there then might be problems with ink level detection. Otherwise you're looking at about £30 - £40 for replacement HP ink.

The other printer I was considering getting instead of this was the Canon Pixma MP640, which is currently £142.45 at Amazon, but has been in the £120's there before. It's more than the HP but as far as i'm aware Canon cartridges aren't chipped, so it's easier to get cheap generic ink for them.
