    Original inks can print 2.4 times, HP study says
    you believe that you actually save more using HP Original Inks than
    remanufactured inks being sold in ink refill stores? At first thought,
    you might have the impression that you can save more with refilled
    inks. But actually, you don’t.

    Latest findings of the ink
    cartridge yield and reliability study for Asia-Pacific conducted by
    leading technical test organization TÜV SÜD PSB revealed that original
    HP inkjet print cartridges can print an average of 2.4 times more
    prints or 146.7 percent more than remanufactured and refilled ink
    brands in the Asia-Pacific region.

    With regard to reliability,
    the study revealed that more than one in four or 25.7 percent of the
    cartridges from Asia-Pacific brands of remanufactured and refilled
    cartridges tested were found “dead on arrival” (or DOA—failed to print
    on installation, with substantial ink leakage, less than 50 pages
    printed, or color mix on 10 consecutive pages) or failed prematurely
    (less than 75 percent of average yield per cartridge type and brand),
    compared with original HP ink cartridges that had no such reliability
    issues during testing.

    The study found that on the average,
    original HP print cartridges produced 59.8 percent, or more than one
    and a half times the number of prints than all branded remanufactured
    cartridges tested. These also produced 106.6 percent, or more than
    twice the number of prints than all remanufactured and refilled
    cartridges tested.

    HP commissioned TÜV SÜD PSB to conduct the
    study to evaluate the page yield and reliability of HP branded inkjet
    cartridges versus 14 brands of remanufactured or refilled cartridges
    from the Asia-Pacific region. The 14 brands of cartridges were selected
    based on sales and usage in the region and sourced from Australia,
    China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea and the Philippines.

    testing, HP 45a and HP 56a black ink cartridges and HP 78a and HP 57a
    tri-color cartridges were used on 17 HP DeskJet 5650 and 24 HP DeskJet
    930C inkjet printers. HP Everyday Paper (A4) was used for all printing
    in this study.

    HP said while there are visible costs like
    acquisition cost and cost of prints per page, customers should also
    consider the hidden costs in the printing process, including increase
    in labor time over fixing unreliable inks, loss of productivity due to
    downtime, supplies wastage from reprints, frustrations brought about by
    poor prints, and the impact on business image.
