Decent printer but it chews through ink like a kid with sweets.
Add the fact that it doesn't like remanufactured cartridges and the TCO is quite high.

It's a good deal for occasional use but look elsewhere if you're planning on using it frequently.

Parent's had one of these, ink carts are extortionate, and the printer will rarely work with anything but OEM carts.

The oem colour cart is £15 (occasionally you can get them for £10) and does around 150 pages - 10p per page! It only contains 3ml of ink according to store.hp.com/UKS…SUP - making it £5,000 per litre! Insane that they can get away with this.

Avoid.

Know HP can be expensive for ink, but the printers which are cheaper for ink tend to be more expensive, i won't be printing loads and i will just keep an eye out for ink deals. thanks for the heads up though.

.. and if you don't use it often you can expect the cartridge to clog up with dried ink.

This takes 301 Inks, so you have to change the CMY cartridge even if one colour is low, not separate inks for colour. Just thought I would let anyone know this before deciding on this model.

yes it does, we bought it last week from Amazon for £40 and I was annoyed you have to put 2 cartridges in, but there was an offer on here earlier for 2 x cartridges (one colour, one black) for around £15 I think, whatever it was I ordered 2!

Bad experience with all types of HP. Self made rule - never HP

Looks like a slightly upgraded version of the 3050, which was going for £20 everywhere 2 years ago.
That one also used 301 ink.

better off getting a brother 135c theres a shop in airdrie called the ink station part of lazer toner solutions
you can get the compatible cartridges for the printer with 35ml of ink lasts for ever

great deal thank u for sharing x

They updated the firmware and now it only works with 'new generation' cartridges. So effectively you are stuck buying OEM cartridges for a long time until these new ones start to trickle into the refill market, and the 'refillers' recognise the difference and make it clear which you are buying.
I always bought HP in the past but this is the last straw for me. Never again.

Anyone know what is a good cheap printer to run then for occasional use? Was thinking about getting one of these but open to suggestions. Thanks.

Same! I would like a printer that isn't too bulky that might only be used every few weeks without drying it all up , grrrr.

hp are well known to reduce the price of their printers in order to screw you over the ink cartridges making this ice cold.

Happy its helped someone i think its a great deal and bought it today! I know ink isnt as cheap as epson etc but its just for personal use and i dont print alot, ive had an HP before and if hadnt of been for my daughter using it as a seat and breaking it i wudnt of needed to replace it, so im quite happy with this deal

If it is 1510 then it is not WiFi...

Laser is king, end of.

torchboy

If it is 1510 then it is not WiFi...


This one is HP deskjet 2542.

HP Deskjet 1510 is cheaper on amazon and very @ £30

good price ink overpriced heated

Can anyone recommend a good printer with cheap ink to run?
Ideal for black white print out with the odd colour photo

I would recommend the brother printer

Good deal, Thanks!

Can anyone tell me if this is indeed wifi, does it allow AdHoc (peer-to-peer - Without a router) printing?

Epson's all the way with inkjets. You just cant beat their cheap compatibles. Been using my sx515 all in one bought from comet a few years back for £45 and its been flawless with the £1 cartridges on ebay. My mind boggles at the cost of the likes of hp and lexmark inkjets cartridges. Surely paying a bit more initially saves a lot more in the long run?

I have this one but it seems that the ink has dried out in the heads and blcked them beyond any 'cleaning' - anyone got a solution for this or is it throw it away time?

Ive heard epsons are great but i wanted a wifi one and a printer today and unfortunately my budget was only £35 though ive had an HP in the past and was more than happy with it until my daughter broke it but for £35 thought this was pretty good

Thanks for this! Thats two deals on HP ink now, turns out it isnt as expensive as everyone thinks so thanks :-)

Im confused about the compatibility to Apple, it doesn't mention it compatible with iphone 5s only models up to iphone 4s?

I have one of these and so far I'm very impressed. Prints wirelessly from phone and tablet (and of course computer). I previously had a similar model from HP which lasted over 2 years and I've had epsons last about 18 months to 2 years. I don't think any of these sub £50 printers are built to last longer than this so I think better off paying this price and expect to get new version in 2 years time.

From the which reviews the cheapest to run printers are the brother ones below:
Brother DCP-J4110DW 61%
10 pages of graphics and 20 pages of text printed over a period of weeks cost £1.64 in ink, compared to the average inkjet printer which costs £4.69 for the same number of prints

other ones are:
Brother DCP-J752DW 69%
Brother DCP-J552DW 69%
Brother MFC-J470DW 67%
Brother MFC-J870DW 70%

Epson's all the way with inkjets. ...

+1 for epson SX600FW (old printer) with carts from Amazon merchant "Triangle MMA". Just got 12carts for less than £10. Bit of a gamble though in general with cheap inks.

Smart consumer would go for refurb cannon mg series ...23 quid ,with ink

I agree. Abysmal service from HP, and cheaply made stuff. #fail
