    QualityLogic Completes Worldwide Reliability Comparison Studies for Inkjet and Color Toner Cartridges
    Study Compares OEM Supplies to Refilled/Remanufactured Brands From North America, Europe, and Asia
    MOORPARK,
    CA — 04/2006 — QualityLogic (www.qualitylogic.com), a leading
    provider of QA and QC test tools and services for the imaging and
    telecommunications industries, today announced the completion of two
    studies comparing the reliability and quality of original HP print
    cartridges to refilled/remanufactured ink and color toner cartridges.
    These studies were commissioned by HP and executed by QualityLogic in
    its test labs.
    The results of the inkjet study showed that nearly
    one out of six refilled cartridges were either dead on arrival or
    failed prematurely. Seventy percent of refilled cartridges exhibited
    reliability problems compared to only 2% of HP cartridges. Common
    problems were leaking cartridges, cross contaminated colors, and
    cartridges that printed no pages. In addition, the tested refilled
    cartridges averaged more than three times the number of low-quality
    pages than the HP cartridges, when looking at the percent of
    low-quality pages printed for each brand.
    The results of the color
    toner study showed that when combining all problem categories, an
    average of 80% of all tested remanufactured color toner cartridges
    exhibited reliability problems, compared to less than 2% of the tested
    HP cartridges. HP’s original cartridges also printed more than four
    times the number of high-quality pages than the average of all tested
    remanufactured cartridges, based on pages randomly sampled.
    “This
    QualityLogic study reveals the striking difference between original HP
    supplies and alternative brands — using data based on a thorough,
    independent analysis of inkjet and color laser print cartridges,” said
    James Mater, QualityLogic president and CEO. “The QualityLogic team
    conducted extensive testing, and meticulously analyzed and compiled
    results using more than 800 ink and toner cartridges and printing more
    than 700,000 pages.”

    Testing Methodology
    QualityLogic
    procured all printers, paper, and HP print cartridges through standard
    retail channels. Refilled/remanufactured print cartridges were obtained
    through multiple retail channels where possible or directly from the
    manufacturer.
    Test pages were designed by QualityLogic using popular
    application packages from Adobe, Corel, and Microsoft to achieve a
    balanced representation of printing samples.
    Cartridge print quality
    and reliability for each brand were determined by inspecting printed
    pages to determine the print quality (PQ) of the page. Each page
    inspected was rated on a scale of 1 to 5 (with 5 being “best”) to
    determine the PQ level of that page. Pages classified with a PQ level
    of 4 or 5 were considered “high quality” and pages classified with a PQ
    level of 1, 2, or 3 were considered “low quality.”
    HP color toner
    cartridges were compared to 12 brands of remanufactured color toner
    cartridges for the HP Color LaserJet 4650 (Q3668A) printer. A total of
    376 remanufactured cartridges and 52 HP cartridges were tested. Brands
    tested were from North America (6 brands), Europe (5 brands), and Asia
    Pacific (1 brand).
    HP inkjet print cartridges were compared to 13
    brands of refilled inkjet print cartridges for the HP DeskJet 6122
    (C8954A) and HP PSC 1350 (Q3501A) printers. A total of 390 refilled
    print cartridges and 50 HP print cartridges were tested. Brands tested
    were from North America (8 brands), Europe (4 brands), and Asia Pacific
    (1 brand).
