Count on affordable photo and everyday printing

Original HP supplies

Ink is much more than just coloured water; the unique, hi-tech formula for HP ink is designed to work with all the mechanical parts of the print cartridge, and the printer itself, to deliver high quality results across a wide range of papers, in a variety of environmental conditions.

Why Original HP Inks?

It takes up to three years to develop new inks, so a huge amount of work goes into producing Original HP Inks, from the selection of superior ingredients to precision engineering of both the chemical formula of the ink and the high-performance ink cartridge components.

The print cartridge itself is the product of years of research and development and is much more than just an ink tank. The integrated print head on an HP cartridge includes an intelligent circuit that controls the hundreds of nozzles, each finer than a human hair, which deliver the ink onto the page. Each drop of ink is fired onto the page on the back of a tiny vapour blast of heat 7 times the intensity of the sun that lasts for just two millionths of a second; this energy blast exposes the ink drop to forces up to one million G’s. Some of the latest Original HP ink cartridges can deliver in excess of 29 million drops per second.

In many of HP’s home printers, over 50% of the printing technology is contained within the cartridge itself; which means every time you replace your Original HP Ink Cartridge you are installing a brand new print engine. Original HP Inks are developed in conjunction with HP papers to ensure maximum compatibility and performance. The result is the perfect balance of colour, permanence and reliability.

Standard Value Packs/XL packs

HP offers a range of ink cartridges tailored to the way you print. To help you make smart choices about printing and costs, HP has created a portfolio of cartridge offerings with various price tags for you to choose from.

Wow what a great little HP printer and loving the fact it comes with ink so you can try it out straight away! So easy to set up on the wireless network that my daughter linked her own laptop in under 5 mins. Its a case of put in the disk and keep clinking next! Comes with easy to follow instructions for those of us with less confidence in these matters. Its quite quick and not that loud, Ive set it up in the dinning room and cant hear it at all. Cant believe the features in this printer for the price I paid. It might not be the best printer if you want it for photos (dont know as I havent tried it) but for use for homework, it's perfect.
Also I know this isnt really about the product but alot of us have had problems with delivery with HDNL, but I would just like to say that with this product I went for the free p&p as it was just for me and not a gift and it arrived in 2 days. Just wanted to say they dont ALWAYS get it wrong!

We were after a replacement for our old printer which we had for about 5 years or so and was becoming less and less reliable. Quality suffers after a few years work with these cheap printers.

Our new printer arrived today and it took only about half an hour to unpack it and install the driver on our windows 7 machine and, as it is an HP, was a breeze to pick up the printer on our wireless network. So far we have tested printing which was fine enough for us except that it does not automatically allow you to print duplex and instead prompts you to put the printed sheet back in the feeder again for the second side. This is manual duplexing and is no great pain to us as yet.

Scanning was also tested, which is fun to do as you have to scan from the printer back to your PC. There is a little wizard that sets up the connection for you and shows your pc name on the printer when ready, then after the scanning is complete, you are shown a jpg file in your 'my documents' folder and the quality again appears to be good.

The photocopying function is very straight forward and is done entirely on the printer itself (as you may expect) and is quite quick and the quality is also very good. You can copy in either black and white or colour.

We also managed to add the printer to a wireless laptop, again in Windows 7 it was very straight forward and only required the driver CD again to complete the process. Test print was quick and of course the same quality as from the desktop PC. Surpisingly, I thought, it also came with a USB cable which is usualy an extra!..

This printer does the job really well, whether you are scanning and sending wirelessly as a pdf file to the laptop, wirelessly printing in black or colour ink, or even simply photocopying, this printer delivers high quality results each time. The cost of replacing the ink is not bad either (£11 for replacement black ink). If you require a printer to use on a casual basis then I strongly recommend this. This is definitely the best printer I've owned so far. In the past I would purchase top of the range models for £250+ but this HP printer leaves a smile on my face for less than £35!

I bought this to replace an older HP 720c and I have to say I really like this printer so far. There seems to be some bad reviews mainly surrounding borderless printing (which this printer doesn't do nor was it designed to) so it's kind of like buying a Ford Escort then complaining that it doesn't fly.I don't print photos so I'm not concerned with borderless printing.

The printer is very light, much lighter compared to the old 720c (which was built like a tank) so I don't know if this is a reflection of advancement in technology or they are just making these things cheaper, in any case it's a good thing so far.

Comes with a USB cable (could be a bit longer but at least it come with one), the outboard PSU is very light so I suspect it's a switchmode PSU which again is no bad thing. The cable running to the printer does seem a bit flimsy much like what you would find on a run of the mill 9 volt adapter so not sure how durable it will be but then again once it's plugged in and left alone it won't see and stress or strain. This feature could be better in my opinion but so far hasn't posed a problem.

The set up using the supplied software and a USB cable was fairly straight forward but the wireless set up is another matter. I use WEP encription on my netgear router along with the mac address form any wireless device so I needed to find the mac address from the printer which took me awhile to work out. You have to print out the info direct from the printer (this option became apparent when trying to set up the printer wireless) on the paper print out was the printers mac address so I managed to get past that hurdle.
