Consider the price for HP ink before buying its printers. I stick with cannon printers which usually sells the least costly ink.

It's just a standard inkjet printer. Technically, most consumer inkjet printers are thermal inkjet because they have a resistor that heats up inside the cartridge.

This is a great deal especially on the free 15 plan. I bought one of the 4500 series HP printers last year (akin to the 5000 series now) for about $40 and put it on the free 15 plan to pair with a cheap Brother BW laser. This combo works out great if you have the space for two printers. Obviously we do the bulk of the printing on the laser and only the necessary color on the HP. What's interesting is that we used to print more in color on our old Epson inkjet (RIP) but when you have to switch printers for color you just use it less. In fact, I keep the HP off most of the time so no one prints to it by mistake.

We print less than 10 color pages a month and I set a calendar reminder for when our cycle changes over so we can fit in any full pages photos or other color stuff needed for school or crafts. You can also print calibration or head cleaning pages on scrap paper to 'exercise' the ink cartridges and they don't seem to count towards the free 15.

Hmmm I've been looking for a color inkjet printer for doing some print and cut vinyl or heat transfer stuff, this is tempting. The ink stuff has me questioning but it is worth looking at. ty

I have this printer with instant link's free plan, we love it. We don't print much, and no photo printing, and never need to worry about ink running out or drying up when needed, I might have paid $1 a couple times for running over monthly print quota, much much cheaper than buying expensive HP new cartridges or messing with 3rd party low quality cartridges, i would recommend it just for the instant ink.

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.
You're forced to use an HP cartridge but you can refill those and use them indefinitely (or as long as you can still refill them). I got an Amazon refill kit which will last me a lifetime in ink. If I have to buy a new cartridge every so many years and refill that again, it's not bad. A little while back, manufacturers like HP were sued and forced to remove lockout from the printer software if it detects you may be refilling or not using an HP cartridge. Again, I have been using the same cartridge since the day I popped it in over a year ago and have been refilling without any issues on this exact printer.

Beware of overage fees., HP monitors your usage, Printer has to be online at all time, Cartridges may take 10 days to arrive.

I know an old couple who thought they would print very little but ended up paying about $1,000 in HP ink over a few year period, not all on the HP Instant Ink program but all with HP inkjet supplies.
Please elaborate, that doesn't even seem possible

Dont even buy a inkjet. If you use sparingly, then the ink dries us fast. Cartridges are $40 or so, unless you buy a cheap one. This one will be $20 during thanks giving.

Buy a laser printer.

Each HP cartridge lasts about 350 pages - go look up their average usage. Each cartridge can cost up to $69 at local retail. They printed or copied a total of 5,444 pages in a few years. Do the math.

They are not poor, just not well informed about the economics of inkjet printers.

I need to refill my Canon with 280 cartridges which are $40-50 - think I'm going to buy this instead because it has the auto document feeder for the scanner

I have an hp printer, and my hp ink is free for life. When I first enrolled in the program, extra ink cartridges were mailed to me at no cost. When I need more, they will be sent to me free of charge as well. Only one month I exceeded 15 pages and that is because I accidentally printed an owner's manual in all languages. I paid $1.07 for the extra pages. I only plug the printer in when I am going to use it. I use it for receipts, menus, mailing labels, etc. It's great to have. Prints from phone and kindle without hiccups.
