Difference between officeJet 5255 and 5260

HP Recommended
OfficeJet 5260

Hi, what's the difference between HP officeJet 5255 and 5260 printer? I compared both specs and they're exactly the same (even for weight and size). However 5260 sells 100 bucks more than 5255, I'm curious about the reason. One service difference I notice is 5260 has $120 prepaid instant ink while 5255 has only $5 prepaid instant ink.

@daido, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

I am not sure about which place you're comparing the prices for the printers. But the price comparison itself says that you are paying the 100 bucks extra for the prepaid card that will be shipped with the printer. 

 

And the advantage of a prepaid card is that you are adding prepaid balance to your Instant Ink account.

 

I hope that answers your concern adequately. Let me know!
