" ...  This is a basic laser printer. ... I had previously gotten another HP Laser printer (HP LaserJet Pro M29w Wireless All-in-One Laser Printer) and ended up returning it because I had to manually feed each label on to the printer, and would get stuck otherwise. ... I am not quite sure I can review the HP+Ink Program because I haven't had it enough time, but I will come back if it ends up being a scam and let you guys know!  ...  "
