I can't tell you about long term cost and reliability, but the 8720 is crazy fast, like almost laser fast. The legal-sized scanner and ADF is useful but the included Readiris software is subpar for scans/OCR/deskew.
Can u use cheap inks in it like from 123 ink

Some models have drm, the 8710,8720 line has always been exempt from the drm firmware. My Feb firmware had no drm either.
how many weeks on 3rd party ink so far?

would you say this printer sucks at photos? Just curious. This is just a fun $12 toy for me, with my bw laser being the workhorse im not even sure if i'll pay another $100 for cartridges when I do minimal color printing

They told me that after my free 2 months of instant ink included ends, I can downgrade my 700 page plan to the free plan.
She told me the same thing.

Firmware Version 1910AR - Mar 2019 updated last night
Cartridge Protection Off
Cartridge Policy Off

Highly recommend updating the firmware version it will resolve many issues, I spent few hours trying to scan to network share drive Windows 10 and Windows 7 no problem with 7 but couldn’t do it with Windows 10 until I update the firmware, Also it fixed the problem scan to usb and IOS apple air print.

If you cannot print from your iphone, iPad with cogeco ARRIS router (error no air print etc…) because ARRIS does not support “bonjour” my solution for that is to connect your printer using ethernet as well as WIFI at the same time bingo lol now IOS can print now unplug ethernet cable. Overall this an excellent printer many options like the scan to any PC in your house no HP software required all from the printer touch screen and EWS

100% the agent Yvonne i spoke to said once I start the trial I cannot go to the free plan. I recorded everything and I asked her twice about this.

I wont upload the recording because I did give personal info in the recording. You guys should call back and record what your agent says that way force them to give you the free month plan after the trial if they say differently.

Everyone seems to get getting different information for the calls, in regards to the free plan, and whether your starter kit can be reused after 3 month trial. I don't know if the agents are giving different answers or not.

Can someone elaborate? I presume by free month plan, are you guys talking about 15 pages free / month? If so, why risk going to the trial versus just asking to go straight into the free month plan?

hmm 300 or was it 350 pages free for 2-3 months is significant.

Does anyone's printer keep running all day irregularly?

It keeps making noise and its annoying. Like cleaning the catridges or whatever its doing. The screen will be off but it will be doing its thing.

I have updated the printer

no, it doesn't do that. It sits there with wifi on and stone dead silent. I haven't seen it run a cleaning cycle yet but it hasn't been a week.

Either they are giving different answers to different people, or one of them made a mistake.

There are two different free plans.
1. Trial plan, print up to 300pages for first 2-3months
2. First 15pages/month for the rest
