    HP Original Toners Better Than Remanufactured Toners
    2008 Manila, Philippines — Following the release of a study on HP
    InkJet ink cartridges conducted by TÜV SÜD PSB last year,
    Hewlett-Packard announces the findings of yet another successful
    comparative cartridge testing for Asia Pacific—this time for toners.

    by technical test organization QualityLogic, the findings show that
    Original HP LaserJet Toner Cartridges can produce an average of 25.7%
    more pages, categorized as acceptable for all uses, as compared to Asia
    Pacific brands of remanufactured toner cartridges that were tested.

    regards to reliability, the findings revealed that one in every four
    remanufactured cartridges in Asia Pacific were found dead on arrival
    (DOA) or failed prematurely (FP), compared to Original HP Cartridges
    that had no such reliability issues during testing.

    toner cartridges were found to have reliability and print quality
    issues, which were found to have an extremely high failure rate. Almost
    one in ten or 9.7% were either dead on arrival or failed prematurely,
    and 15.3% of the samples tested had half of total printed pages limited
    or without use.

    Key Findings
    • Reliability – Problem Cartridges
    When combining all problem categories, HP LaserJet toner cartridges
    exhibited no reliability failures in the study, compared to an average
    of 25.0% for all remanufactured brands in the study.
    • Print Quality Page Distribution
    HP LaserJet toner cartridges printed an average of 96.1% of sample
    pages categorized as acceptable for all uses, compared to 70.4% for the
    average of remanufactured brands tested.

    Details about the study
    commissioned QualityLogic to conduct a study to evaluate the print
    quality page distribution and reliability of HP branded LaserJet toner
    cartridges versus 3 brands of remanufactured toner cartridges from the
    Asia Pacific region. The study was completed in June 2008.  For
    testing, HP 10a and HP 42a black toner cartridges were used on HP
    LaserJet 2300 and HP LaserJet 4350 printers.

    A total of 24
    cartridges (HP10A and HP42A) were tested for each brand in the study
    (12 each for the LaserJet 2300 and 4350 platforms). Printing was
    performed in a continuous mode with the following test pages: Page 1 –
    Business Letter, Page 2 – Spreadsheet, Page 3 – Presentation Slide, and
    Page 4 – Flyer. All test pages were printed using standard 8 ½ x 11
    office paper.Cartridge print quality page distribution was
    determined by inspecting a sample of approximately 170 pages taken at
    periodic intervals over the lifespan of each cartridge. The scale used
    for grading sampled pages was created using data from a psychometric
    research study of business laser printing users.QualityLogic
    page inspectors categorized each of the sampled pages based on overall
    print quality, using the scale created from the psychometric study
    data. The inspectors were trained using the 40 page psychometric page
    set. The consistency of grades across inspectors was monitored on a
    daily basis and retraining against the psychometric page set, with
    known scale values, was repeated as necessary.
