Are you required to get the subscription for the ink or can you buy your own?
You are forced to use HP Instant Ink if you use the ink cartridges included with the printer. If you choose to opt out of HP Ink program, you must remove the cartridges and buy non-HP Instant Ink cartridges.

If you try to print while not a part of the program, the printer will halt and stop printing.

Really sickens me that HP uses this tactic so people can't use third party (printer identifies them as counterfeits) and have to buy their ink on initial purchase of the printer itself. They make most of their money from ink rather printers.

So, you can just get non-hp cartridges from the get go? Also, that is super shady. I use my inket all-in-one for scanning and occasional copying. All other printing goes to my laserjet.

You can just buy retail ink and never use the Instant Ink cartridges. They don't "force" it on you.

Printer-as-a-Service is not a good idea.

This doesn't have automatic double-sided printing. Frown

It's actually awesome, just depends on how you see it. You don't print that much and you buy this printer. You keep printing but don't have to refill or be concerned about the ink ... just think about it.

Anyone know how the free ink program works? If I print 15 pages or less a month I will never have to buy ink again?

I would avoid the hp printers like the plague if I were you guys. Replacement ink, even when remanufactured are pretty expensive compared to others. Wait on a similar deal for a brother printer. I had to learn this the hard way and my hp printer (not sure if it's the same exact model, but looked very similar) stopped working with a manually refilled cartridge shortly after purchase brand new from amazon.....and even the remanufactured cartridges were nearly 10$ minimum on eBay so I didn't even bother try. Correct me if I'm wrong but fairly certain they're facing a lawsuit right now about unethical business practices related to such an issue with many of their models. At least I remember reading as much. That being said, my current brother printer was purchased for the same price via a post on here, doesn't have a touchscreen like the hp did, but ink is dirt cheap in comparison, at only as little as a dollar per cartridge.

I bought a HP 2624 last year and had nothing but problems. I sucessfully used it for a few prints and then every time after that(sometimes not for a month or two) I would get half a page printed if I was lucky. This was if there was not a paper feeding problem before that(basically, I had to push each page into the printer). I had signed up for the Instant Ink service. Thinking the cartridges might be dried out, installed the "fresh cartridges" with the same issue. After spending hours hours playing with it, uninstalling, reinstalling, trying generic print drivers without their software, etc., I gave up and threw the thing in the trash.

I had used HP inkjets and all in ones for years and always had issues with the paper feeding properly. Now it seems there is something wrong with the software too. Since the print heads are part of the cartridge and I had the same issue with multiple new cartridges, I am guessing it is some kind of software issue.

I bought a cheap Samsung laser printer and it is a thousand times better in every way. I rarely printed photos, so will farm that out in I need it.

And yes, I am aware of the irony that Samsung's printing division is now part of HP.

Technically that is correct. But it's still shady. They back you into a corner. You either purchase ink with the printer thereby increasing the initial cost of the printer or you use the ink that they provide and be forced into a subscription model. I get why they do it, but they should just give you the choice without requiring that you be shoehorned into a subscription. Allow me to use the ink that comes with the printer and then give me the option to try out the service. If I decide it's not for me, then we leave it at that and I'll just purchase ink when the one that came with it runs out.
