HP instant ink, is it worth it?

Posted 29th Oct 2020
I used to have an office as part of my previous job, and I used to print a lot. So I had a colour laser printer and a black and white laser.

The colour laser constantly had issues and at £100 for a set of toners, eventually became uneconomical to continue with. I stick with the old hp4100 black and white laser though and that has lasted years with no problems and cheap toner.

However the hp4100 seems to have died, for the past few weeks it has been blurry and then suddenly it stopped switching on and stops on the ram test.

We print up to 100 sheets per month now as a family so I'm tempted by the hp instant ink and the £3.49 / month package.

Any thoughts on it cost wise? And any thoughts on a decent compatible printer? I don't really want a scanner but most come with it. I would ideally like a proper paper tray and would like automatic duplex. I'd prefer a smaller printer with less features over a big multi function printer though.
