    Canon Slams Inkjet Competitors
    August
    2006,A senior executive of Canon Australia has claimed that both Epson
    and HP Inkjet printers do not print accurate colours but Canons new
    Inkjet printers do.During a press briefing to journalist the executive
    KC Lu Product Manager of Inkjet Printing at Canon showed 3 examples of
    a file printed to normal A4 paper. The documents from the HP and Epson
    printers were significantly different from the printout from a new
    Canon MP510 printer that is among several new printers to be launched
    this week by Canon. The printouts from the HP and Epson printers
    appeared to be washed out with a map in the bottom left hand corner of
    the page appearing as green in the Canon printout as opposed to yellow
    from the other printers. When questioned how the tests had been done he
    said “We purchased the Epson and HP printers off the shelf at a retail
    store, powered them up set all the settings to default and pressed
    print. We used the same paper in all three machines”.When asked whether
    he was claiming that both the HP and Epson printers printed inferior
    quality to the Canon printer he said “yes the new Canon printer
    delivers much better quality” He also admitted that Canon consaumables
    such as paper and ink were significantly more expensive in Australia
    than in Countries like the UK and the USA.He later said” It is not our
    policy to knock our competition but we do have a powerful new product”.
    When questioned as to why Canon had not conducted the tests via an
    independent testing lab he said” We simply wanted to demonstrate the
    capabilities of our printers”A spokesperson for Epson said “This is
    certainly unusual. There are so many variables from the printers to the
    computer to the settings. We would like to see the tests and the
    printers before we comment” A spokesperson for HP said “This is very
    unusual we would like to know the printer models and how the tests were
    done”.The new range of Canon printers are under embargo untill later
    this week. Canon has said that they will supply SmartHouse with all 3
    printers for testing.
