Introduction

HP Instant Ink is a service launched a few years ago with connected inkjet printers. I had to renew my cartridges and I asked myself the question of the purchase or the subscription, either I bought XL cartridges at 104.- CHF (about 97 €), or I took the subscription HP Instant Ink for 50 pages at 3.95 CHF (2.99 € / 2.99 $) per month, for the Swiss, hey yes as usual we "like to be plucked" by the exchange rate, after various calculations, I would need a little more 26 months to arrive at the subscription price, compared to the purchase of the 4 XL cartridges. Not to mention that within 26 months I will surely have already bought a 2nd batch ...

According to HP one could save up to 70% of these costs in ink cartridge. The cartridges that I received are special, they are filled much more than the XL ones, we can say that they are XXXL ;-).
For printing there are no page fill limits, a page can be text or a full page photo, it will be counted in the same way.

My opinion

I use the service with great satisfaction for a few months, we will say that it is forgotten, except for the invoice which arrives automatically by email once the package is debited 😉

The fact of being able to adapt your plan at any time, that a certain number of unused copies be carried over to the following month is a welcome bonus. Black and white, full color, 10% coverage or 100% printing is billed as one page, so if you print a lot of photos or a well loaded presentation you are a winner 😉
