Costly print- 11 Rs/pg (b/w) & 21 Rs/pg (Clr)
on 24 January 2017
HP All-In-One Printer price is very attractive but running cost of ink cartridges is very high.
Scanning is good quality but can scan only one page at a time & you need a separate file binder software to merge all files in single document.
Now coming to cost- (discounts can be available occasionally)
Printer HP 2131 costs close to Rs 2,300 (under discount offers)
It uses HP 803 Ink cartridge.
B/w cartridge costs Rs 702 & colour cartridge costs Rs 836
B/w cartridge can print around 60 pages for Rs 702 & colour cartridge can print max 40 pages for Rs 836
thus cost of single print is Rs 11 Rs/page (B/W) & 21Rs/Page (Clr)
HP's claims for number of pages are under economy mode & under lab test conditions - actual user will get above stated numbers
refill kits are available at half prices of original cartridges but quality of colour prints will be compromised.
Thus recommended to purchase only for occasional users with low usage.
Not cost effective for regular & heavy users.
