I have this printer and get the 15 pages free per month.

Good deal, if you want a basic printer just in case you need to print something.

I use this at work and the ink runs out pretty fast with medium use. I would rather pay a bit more for a laserjet.

In my vast experience with printers, STAY AWAY from ALL hp products!
The internet is FLOODED with questions on how to fix the many, many problems with hp printers (way more than all others by far). Even new ones are problematic. AND why does it take an hour to load the software unless its writing into the very core of your OS?

I promise, Get ANY OTHER BRAND, you will not be sorry!

I actually bought a two pack of these for 60 dollars just over two years ago, use it all the time, wireless, prints from my phone as well as all my other devices, and I still have one in the box waiting its turn, which will never happen, since it is so far, ten times better than any HP printer i have ever used!

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.
I call B.S. on this. There is no way in heck someone racked up $1k in Instant Ink costs. The printers its compatible with are not even meant to print high volume. I had Instant Ink on the same printer for 3 years and have NEVER paid more than the $5/month I've signed up for and I print work docs all the time.

This printer is not meant for "medium" work use. It's meant for very light home use. Laser printers end up costing much more with far less features for home use. People just think that Laser printers are better because they cost 2-3 times as much and the toners appear to last longer, but in the end ink is the way to go for home use, especially with the Instant ink program.

HP sells 3 times as many printers as every other manufacture combined and they specialize in the low end consumer market but also sell a ton of commercial printers as well that is why the internet is "FLOODED" with repair questions. They own the print market. Just like how the internet in flooded with Samsung or Apple repair questions and its not Motorola or LG. If your drivers are taking an hour to load then you have a PC issue not a printer issue. There are basic drivers available.

ANY OTHER BRAND will be exactly the same, you get what you pay for, the technology between manufactures is practically identical from one another.

I sure hope you at the very least recycle the printer once you are done with it and not just toss it in the trash.

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.
It sickens you? So a company is not supposed to make money to run, turn a profit and pay employees so what, you can have free prints at home? Should they just sell the printer at cost and give away the ability for them to make money? Or would you rather all printer manufactures start to sell very low end printers at 10 times the cost and give away the ink so they can make a profit. There are already printers out there like that now and the reviews are horrible on them because they are not meant for high volume printing. You have a choice of buying a cheap printer and then choosing how much you want to print or not print, this way everyone wins.

You can just buy retail ink and never use the Instant Ink cartridges. They don't "force" it on you.
You are correct. You can buy and use other HP ink cartridges with this printer. Instant ink is a great program too with a free option of 15 pages/month.

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?
Correct. You keep printing with the same cartridges until the ink runs out and then they ship you new cartridges. If you do go over 15 pages in a month its $ for every 10 pages but you can always upgrade your plan. If you print very little this is a great option as if the inks for whatever reason fail, they will send you new ones at no cost.

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. (Separate color
So you blame the printer because you stuck something in it that wasn't engineered for it. Your right about the lawsuit, but if you do your homework you will see that EVERY printer manufacture gets and has gotten sued for the exact same reason. This is America, people sue all major companies all the time, but nothing really comes from these lawsuits but the Law Firms making millions. It's common practice for Law Firms to file bogus class action claims against large companies because they just settle and the firms make money. Its not unethical for HP to try and get customers to buy only their product, they sell the printers at or below cost. They have to make money somehow.
