HP Deskjet D1560 printer, old printers

The UK is now in another Lockdown due to Covid19 which means home schooling for my daughter again. Everyday I visit Microsoft Teams to download school work and print it ready for the next day.

Our main printer at home is an HP B210 all-in-one printer. Even though the work only needs to be printed in Draft Greyscale, my wife is also working from home and requiring use of the printer everyday, so we are starting go through the ink cartridges again.

Looking to save some money on cartridges, I decided to dig out my old HP Deskjet D1560 printer from the garage. The printer had not been used for about 12 months, but to my surprise the black cartridge was still OK. The colour cartridge was finished.

I'm reminded why I like this printer so much, even though the colour cartridge was finished, it can still function and it isn't fussy about using non branded cartridges either.

If your not fussy about print quality, latest features and just want a simple everyday printer the HP Deskjet D1560 is still a good printer. I have seen the printers on Ebay from about £20.00

The cartridges are also reasonably cheap. HP Colour (22) XL and Black (21) XL unbranded cartridges cost around £22.00.
