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

HP Envy 4500 All-in-One Wireless Printer, Instant Ink Compatible 4.3 5 77 77
Appalling experience We have had nothing but problems with this printer. Scanning strops half way and freezes, copying does the same. Worst of all it can't cope with being a wireless printer and constantly drops connectivity with our iMac. If I could give it less than one star I would. We have already taken it back once and had it 'repaired' but that seems to have made matters worse. We are so utterly frustrated and infuriated by this printer. 18 December 2014
Really like this printer This is my very first wireless printer so was a bit apprehensive in its selection. It was so easy to set up with both my iPad and laptop. This has turned out to be a great product very compact and quiet in use. The print quality is excellent and auto double sided printing a saving on paper. Will be interested to see how printing ink lasts. I have not signed up to auto ink replacement. Overall delighted so far after approx two months 17 December 2014
Good low volume domestic printer This item was easy to set up and works perfectly with all devices in the house via wireless configuration. 16 December 2014
Easy when you know how! This was my first wireless printer so slightly apprehensive about setting up. Getting the printer connected wirelessly was very easy, following the instructions. However - then spent about 3 hours on a Saturday afternoon trying to get it to print from my ipad2 using airprint and Windows 8.1 laptop. Two phone calls to JL technical support only resulted in directing me to HP technical support which was only open Mondays- Fridays. Over the weekend I did eventually get it to print from ipad after downloading HP ePrint app but no luck with airprint. I gave up with the laptop and connected via USB and it worked fine. I spoke to HP technical support on Monday and both problems resolved so quickly and easily. To print using airprint it was as simple as switching off my router for 5 seconds - after switching back on, prints using airprint!!! The laptops problem was so simple - open up control panel and saw there were 2 icons for the printer, slightly different names. The technician explained that once you use usb connection the laptop remembers that and uses it as default printer. The other icon was the wireless option of the same printer - set it as default printer and problem solved!!!! So now if I want to use printer with usb I just need to remember to change the default printer. Thank goodness for technical support! I spent more time on the phone giving personal details and holding for a short time to speak to a technician than it did to fix my problems. One very happy customer. 10 December 2014
HP Envy 4500 Printer Excellent print quality, relatively easy to set up. JL pleasure to deal with. 09 December 2014
Reliable friend All functions of this machine are easy to use. I particularly relish info. re ink levels and paper turning facility. The ability to print from various sources is a great bonus. Having previously used a much simpler machine I am absolutely delighted with the service provided by this printer and the ease with which I can use it. 09 December 2014
JUST THE JOB This is all that I need in a printer. The price was great, the 2 year guarantee with John Lewis and its quiet to operate. Good prints as well. With my previous printer when I printed of my Tesco vouchers the checkout lady had to manually input the numbers, this time with my new printer they were read automatically, thus saving causing a queue. 09 December 2014
Excellent - once you get it set up Got this to replace an old HP printer and a separate Epsom scanner - mostly as they no longer have drivers for the newer Windows. Scanner is good with this. Setting up to Wi-Fi really easy if you follow the instructions - and works from phone and other computers in the building. My only concern was that there seems to be an issue with images from Office documents not printing as they are on the document. Looking online it seems that this is an issue that's been around for a while, and neither Windows nor HP are willing to accept responsibility and sort out a patch. I've managed to work out how to sort this on my documents (meaning I had to edit a lot of my docs) I think that the issue is with this printer driver as it works with my old printer and other printers. Hopefully HP will sort out a patch soon. Printing quality is good and does double sided very easily once you get the hang of it. 30 November 2014
