I just checked it again and it is oos :/
It looks like compatible inks for this are £25 a set on ebay
It's expensive but the 70ml colour bottles the ecotank takes are supposed to last for 8000 pages and the 135ml black is supposed to last for 6000, according to cartridgepeople, so may be worth it
seems expensive for an inkjet. How many pages would you ahve to get through before savings on ink justify the cost?
What does "up to 3 years of ink included" mean? Can't see it mentioned in the description.

Based on the included ink which HP claims does up to 12,000 black pages or up to 8000 colour pages.

They suggest the included ink will last up to 3 years of use.

Assuming their estimate of "12000 black pages" is correct for the included ink, for the price of this printer you get something like 1.2p per page.
For comparison, the printer in this deal can print something like 580 black pages according to its item description, which works out at roughly 5.4p per page, that's just over 4 times more expensive per page.

The difference in cost between the two is about £120. At 5p per page, you would have to print something like 2000 pages on the PIXMA before it reached the initial cost of this printer, so for low print quantities the PIXMA fares better.

For higher quantities though this one wins by a mile. If you print 12000 pages on both, this would cost, well, the current price of £150. The PIXMA would set you back about £600.
Shame no auto duplex

unlikely to find any offering that at this price point think for that feature they start at about £300
Pretty sweet price for the printer if you’re printing as much as we are at home during lockdown. I’ve an Epson equivalent and the ink tank printers are very cost effective if you print a lot.

The Epson ET-2650 is actually the only ink tank printer that Which? list as a Don't Buy as it scored very poorly when testing and had Underwhelming black-text printing & a Mediocre scanner and copier.

That's nonsense. It's not that difficult to build in auto-duplex, my last <£100 Canon Pixma had it. Even this one at £39 has it.

For this HP 'Smart Tank' not to have it, is absolutely ridiculous. The whole point of the printers economy is based on doing a LOT of printing, yet they expect you to manually feed back in printed sheets to do double-sided. Anyone who's tried doing this for anything over >5 pages will know its a flippin' nightmare, as soon as one jams or two sheets are taken as one, you'll be throwing it out the window.

I'm referring to inktank machines. You only get that feature once you enter the £300 price bracket

Thanks for this - seems a great mix of good printer with cheap ink (which I've found really difficult to find over hours of research the past few days). Its out of stock everywhere though, which is a shame!

Managed to find one ink tank machine that does duplex the canon megatank G5050 currently £199 at Argos maybe worth keeping an eye on as normally £250-£300.

I suppose non ink tank machines have greater subsidies as they make money on the inks. Here, there is less incentive /need to buy ink frequently.

Yes this is the point im trying to make with these ink tank machines they aren't made at a loss as their is very little incentive for the manufacturer in doing that, where as your standard inkjet they will practically give away to you so they can make money from the catridge sales.
