Below from the HP website on the printer. Sounds pretty skeevy. So the printer can phone home and block using 3rd party ink?

"Dynamic security enabled printer. Only intended to be used with cartridges using an HP original chip. Cartridges using a non-HP chip may not work, and those that work today may not work in the future."

heh - I -literally- just got back from setting up a new pc for a family member that has this printer....

....Easiest printer I've ever setup.

Went to windows printer options and added new printer. The printer showed up as wireless, I pressed connect and bam... EFFING done. Test print completed it was flawless.

If you just need prints, I can vouch this just works. As for other types of media like photos, I don't know, but as a printer for basic needs - perfect.

Looks like its eligible for Instant Ink, free if you print under 15 pages a month.

Edit: I stand corrected, as others mentioned this doesn't qualify for the free 15 pages/month. $2.99/month for 50 pgs/month is the cheapest plan available for this printer

Only 3.5 stars out of 5 on amazon over 2000 reviews. Since all printers suck, Im gonna at least vote for starting with one with good reviews.

Got this one last year for $100 and it's been working in perfect condition.

Thanks OP, just bought.... I needed scanner and I looked into their subscription service and it should fit my needs since its based on pages and not photos. I should get four, 4x6 for every 8x14 legal sheet I have which is CHEAP considering on demand printing.

3 bucks for fifty 8x10s is damn good.

Go all the way to checkout and be logged in as a rewards member. Also.. I really mean all the way...like right before you press "order" to see the final price. I got it for $72 total with tax and make sure you are picking up - NOT delivery.

These are chipped ink cartridges like the Epson ones - evil way for them to try and prevent cheap ink refilling at home using a bottle of ink and syringe kit sold on ebay etc.

Doesn't need internet access - logic is built into the printer itself to check and reject non hp cartridges.

If important, get the $20 wireless Canon aio in the other thread with easy to refill cartridges.

If you don't want to go the oem ink route, is it possible to buy 3rd party carts? I only see ppl talking about refilling, which I'd really rather not do.

I actually bought different inks from two third party sellers on Amazon and it worked just fine. Didn't have any issues thus far.
