About Instant Ink:
Instant Ink is a subscription service from HP that will deliver new ink to your door as the current cartridge runs out. Instant Ink eligible printers that are connected to the internet send a message to HP when you need new cartridges and they'll be shipped directly to you. Designed to ensure that you're paying for the number of pages you print as opposed to the ink itself, it'll help you get the most out of your printer.

For a monthly fee, you can subscribe to receive ink for up to 50, 100 or 300 pages per month, regardless of whether the prints are high quality colour photos or black and white documents. Unused pages also roll over to the next month up to the maximum number of pages per month in your chosen plan (for example, in the 50 page plan, up to 50 unused pages can roll into the next month, giving you a maximum of 100 pages for that month). You can also cancel your plan at any time, or changing to match your printing needs. For more information on the Instant Ink packages available, please click here.

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 94 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Difficult to connect to WiFi I purchased 2 of these, both had difficulty finding my WiFi (BT Infinity.) I continued using one with WiFi Direct as this one is married to a single laptop. Returned the second one. Replacement had the same problem. I have never had this problem with any other device (including Kodak and Brother printers, chromecast, mobiles, PCs etc) Returned for refund and purchased a Canon Pixma 4250. Connected without a problem in 2 minutes, Also, the user interface is far more intuitive. Top marks to John Lewis customer support for helping identify the problems and organising quick replacements. 26 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Really easy to install Found it very easy to install and wireless function works perfectly from my iphone and imac - a great product for the price. 18 February 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Works okay when wired up. Worked fine initially, and still does via the USB cable. Does not work with wifi from the laptop or airprint form the I pad now. Tried help file from HP without any improvement. 18 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Printer My daughter set it up on my laptop and I downloaded the AirPrint HP app on my iPad. Printing quality is fabulous and it is so easy to print from my iPad which is what was important to me. 17 February 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Useful and uncomplicated I have found this straightforward to set up and use so far. That is all I want from technology so I am satisfied. 17 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by RIDDLED WITH BUGS Do not buy this printer! After vowing many years ago never to have another HP printer, I made the mistake of believing the hype (and other reviews), and bought this. Since day 1 it has caused problems, mainly because of its incompatibility with Windows 8.0/8.1. Numerous downloads, fixes and 'off/on' frustrations have not solved the many problems, which include its inability to print more than one page at a time. The HP 'support' website is less than useless - blank pages where download fixes should be, etc. Not fit for purpose. 17 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great printer! After spending hours this past weekend trying to get my Samsung wireless printer to connect to the network, I gave up and ordered the HP Envy. It arrived this evening and, within 15 minutes of unpacking it, I was printing over the wireless network. I am super pleased with this printer and recommend it to anyone looking for a great printer at a great price. 16 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really simple to set up We had been looking for a new printer for some time, and had read the previous reviews on this printer. We found this printer really simple to set up and had found a video on you tube which showed how to unpack it etc. With the previous printer we had never managed to get the wireless setup correctly, but the set up for this one was simple (it really did it itself). Very pleased with this, although we have not used it extensively yet. 14 February 2015
