About HP Instant Ink:
HP Instant Ink is a replacement ink service that saves you time and money ensuring that you always have ink before you need it. HP 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 enrol on the page plan of your choice (50, 100 or 300 pages per month) and, regardless of what you print, including colour photos, HP will send you the ink you need all included in your monthly price plan. Unused pages can be rolled over to the next month up to the limit of 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 upgrade your plan at any time if you want more pages or cancel your plan online without penalty if you need to stop your subscription.

Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 118 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good everyday printer I've had this about three weeks now and am pleased with the quality of prints produced. Its fine with basic printer paper but I had problems with feeding through heavy weight (320 gsm) A4 photo paper . I ended up with half a photo printed. You need to ensure you have a stack of photo paper in the feeder, not a single sheet. I have joined the instant ink scheme as it would seem to offer savings over purchasing cartridges separately. 01 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use Product scans and copies very clearly. Easy to use even for those not technically minded. 01 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by HP Envy 4500 Bought this to use with my HP laptop. So far so good. It was easy to set up, and printing and scanning better than expected, especially the duplex printing.Have signed up for instant ink - not too happy that ideally this requires me to keep the printer internet connected at all times, but I shall give this a try for a couple of months and then cancel if not satisfied.I also downloaded the HP eprint app to my kindle fire hd tablet hoping that printing from my tablet would be as easy. Alas, this was not so. Having followed all the instructions and spent extra time and effort, was only able to print one and a half pages of a four page document. Decided this was not worth the effort, and will simply print from laptop. Overall, a good printer for the price. 10 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great wireless printer Looked at reviews for this printer, and am not disappointed. Great printer for the price. Easy to set up - it virtually did it itself. Prints both sides of paper, and the HP instant ink is a great service. The John Lewis guarantee of two years is a nice bonus. Totally recommend. 29 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Wi Fi Printer Delivered on time, unpacked, and online without fuss or any hassle. Very good service from J L again, very pleased with the printing quality. 29 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Pleased. Very simple to set up , , Great product for a basic printer . 19 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Finally happy Took awhile to get familiar with how the printer worked but eventually cracked it. Now happy. 12 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Really disappointing - going back tomorrow Bought this in October and initially it was great. Went away on holiday, came back and the printer is now offline. The only way I can get it back online is to uninstall if from every appliance (including removing the software from the laptop), disconnect the wifi and then reinstall it on every appliance and reinstall the wifi ...clearly not a 5 minute job and is taking up so much time. JL technical help have never heard of the problem and gave the advise to disconnect it from everything. Fingers crossed the JL at least replace the appliance is it clearly is not working well. Interesting that the last few reviews are poor, clearly this printer is now lasting more then a few months. Really disappointed. 09 May 2015
