    does it still let you play music once one of your ink cartridges is empty or does it just refuse to do anything like most other printers?

      I hate printers. Still remember a brother printer I had, that I never wanted to print color, but refused to print black until I replaced the cyan cartridge…

      I legit wouldn't be surprised if this would so playing music and just tell you it needs ink

    Cheap! Good value even if you only use the included ink and then use as a speaker (or sell it on Gumtree), reviews say sound quality is good.

    Are you able to use generic inks with these, or are they hard wired to take only proprietary HP inks? Can anyone advise on this.

      But out probably cost me about $2 a year at officeworks, and only if officeworks is closer than my work place.

    •  

      Not very relevant, as you will still need ink - it only comes with a setup cartridge some people report it does 20-40 pages… approx $1 / page if you bought it just for ink is not a bargain.

      • +4 votes

        I believe those people are incorrect.

        Description says:

        HP 803 Setup Black Cartridge (~110 pages)
        HP 803 Setup Tri-color Cartridge (tri-color composite yield ~100 pages)

        My previous $19 HP printer did over 100 pages both black and colour. So, from personal experience, description is almost spot on! I purchased 2 at the time, and that one is still going lol, so more than 100 pages from memory.

        •  

          I don't think its that simple. I believe HP used to state their page estimates are based on 5% page coverage… i.e. light amount of text… i'm guessing you printed a lot of documents not images to achieve the result you got.

          Divide the number of pages by as much as 20 if you are printing full page brochures / images etc and it could be as low as 5-6 pages (i.e. of each ink remembering black is separate etc) from a setup cartridge before one of the inks starts complaining.

          Moral of the story, it varies widely based on what is printed.

          If a setup cartridge is about 1/3 full… i still think a lot of heavy ink users printing a mix of images etc would be lucky to get 40 pages.

          •  

            @MrFrugalSpend: You're right, mostly documents, not full page brochures at all. I don't think I ever have.

            I'll monitor my usage with this, but I'll get my monies worth for sure.

      No, the idea as stated on the page is to use your phone as a document scanner and print wirelessly.

        Yep, thank you. Only saw that after posting. Didn't realise HP 65 was its actual name

        Might just buy 2 then, cheaper than buying ink lol

        •  

          Might just buy 2 then, cheaper than buying ink lol

          That's not how it works. The ink supplied with printers is not a full cartridge but a 'trial' smaller size one with much less ink.

        •  

          not really. The printer only comes with starter ink. Print 110 pages max. The retail ink can print way more for around $20

          •  

            @runamuck: New ink non XL cartridge says can print up to 120 pages, cost $25
            So if the ones included can print 110 pages then thats not too bad?

            •  

              @OCD Completionist: In this case, its better to buy 2 printers

              HP 803 Setup Black Cartridge (~110 pages)
              HP 803 Setup Tri-color Cartridge (tri-color composite yield ~100 pages.

              A standard (black) cartridge is like 29$, and prints up to 160 pages.
              U also need to spend on tri-colour cartridge

            •  

              @OCD Completionist: i don't get it.

              is this printer using HP 65 cartridge or 803 ?

              •  

                @phunkydude: The spec says 803 but the other may also be compatible ??

              •  

                @phunkydude: HP 803 is only the startup setup cartidge model. That's specially made as the starter cartridge.

                The full cartridge for it you buy from the likes of Officeworks, JB, Harvey Norman etc is either HP 65 or HP65XL. It's the one you will use when you chuck out the starter cartidge.

                But in my opinion $45 for the HP 65XL (300 pages max) is not economical with 15c per page for black at least. That's a rip off compared to what you can get on a laser printer.

                •  

                  @hollykryten: Just wondering if I can refill in the 803, or I need to buy a HP65 for refill?

                  •  

                    @xxau: You would probably need a new ink cartridge chip as it probably keeps a record of the pages printed and won't print again even if the cartidge is refilled.

                    •  

                      @hollykryten: That's really a rip off, $24+$45 cartridge, the price is almost tripled.
                      I was considering buying it if I can directly refill the setup cartridge.

                      •

    It may be a bargain but the printer cartridge only lasts 120 pages max.

        Oh well even the high yield HP65XL black cartridge (around $45 retail) for it only does up to 300 pages max. That's not plenty. About 15c per page. That's not economical at all.

    Speaker quality… lets just say $24 printer that makes 'sound'.
