    SURVEY SAYS ….UK BLOWS  $MILLION$ ON OEM TONER & INK !

    Branded printer cartridges, the new old enemy
    British consumers are wasting £440m a year on branded printer cartridges rather than cheaper white label replacements.A survey from YouGov found half of all households always buy brand name cartridges, which are typically a third more expensive than equivalents from the likes of WH Smith. Switching would save an average of £44 a year.Researchers spoke to 2,000 households. The average UK home gets through 4.85 cartridges a year. Cartridges from HP, Canon or Lexmark cost an average of £30 each – so the annual bill is £145.50 – the same as a TV licence.

    Only 18 per cent of respondents stick exclusively to cheaper cartridges.
    The survey was carried out on behalf of Environmental Business Products, which also noted that non-branded cartridges are usually better for the environment because empty cartridges are collected, cleaned and refilled.Printer ink is of course infamously expensive – remember the old survey which compared HP’s cartridges with Dom Perignon vintage champagne?
