Luckily HP came to the rescue and offered us the HP Envy 5530 Printer. How awesome is that! IOS compatible, it prints, copies, scans, prints lab quality photos and is web compatible and wireless!
Print wirelessly—from virtually anywhere you roam—from your smartphone, tablet, and Internet-connected PC.
Always have your printer on hand. Scan directly to your mobile device with HP Printer Control.
There's no need to wait—set up quickly out of the box and connect to your wireless network automatically.
Happy to accept and try the new instant ink service I was delighted to save some hard earned money not having to replace the old printer ourselves.
The printer was very easy indeed to set up. It has a small but easy to read colour touch screen. The set up and operation instructions were straightforward. The print quality is great and the ink cartridges very easy to install.
The HP instant ink service saves you up to 70% on replacement ink. It's HP original ink and is ordered by your printer, delivered to your door! How cool is that!
Currently available in the UK only get the ink before you need it. There are three plans based on the number of pages printed per month and they will be sent before the printer runs out of ink!
Occasional printing plan costs £1.99 per month for 50 pages per month.
Moderate printing plan costs £3.49 per month for 100 pages per month.
Frequent printing plan costs £7.99 per month for 300 pages per month.
Once again this was so easy to set up! Just buy an eligible printer, connect your printer to the internet, and then enrol. It's simple! Once you've registered you'll get sent your first ink cartridge. Just install it and the printer does the rest. It will automatically let HP know when it's running low and another cartridge will be sent. Genius!
Please note we've only had the initial ink cartridge installed for less than a month so cannot yet comment on how effective and efficient the replacement service is but I'm confident all will be good. I'll add to this post or do another a bit further along the line!
With the ink HP will provide pre-paid envelopes to return used cartridges. HP planet partners will recycle them as part of the service.
We have been gifted the moderate printing plan and HP Envy 5530 for the purpose of this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
