    Original HP isThe Best Choice for Printing
    June 07- European Research Firm Innovationstechnik Proves Original HP
    Inkjet Cartridges Print More and are More Reliable Than AlternativesHP
    today announced the findings of a third party report it commissioned to
    look into the efficacy of Original HP ink cartridges as compared with
    alternative, so-called ‘store/refill brand’ and ‘refill station’
    European offerings.Leading European research firm Innovationstechnik
    tested more than 1,000 inkjet cartridges from 16 well-known European
    store/refill brands and refill station offerings against their Original
    HP counterparts during late 2006 and early 2007. The findings were very
    - Original HP inkjet cartridges print 34% more pages than compatible alternatives(2)
    - Original HP inkjet cartridges print 69% more pages than cartridges refilled at refill stations(3)
    well as looking at the relative yields afforded by the different inkjet
    cartridge alternatives, Innovationstechnik also tested their relative
    reliability. The results were equally clear-cut:
    - On average, more than one in five (24%) compatible alternatives were dead on arrival(4) or failed prematurely(5)
    - On average, one in three (33.6%) inkjet cartridges refilled at shops or kiosks were dead on arrival or failed prematurely

    yet another test, Original HP Supplies prove that they offer not only
    better reliability and better quality results than alternative options,
    but they give far superior value for money,” said Vincent Vanderpoel,
    vice president and general manager Supplies Business, Imaging and
    Printing Group, Europe, Middle East and Africa. “Considering HP’s
    unrivalled commitment to environmental responsibility in printing
    supplies and choice of supplies to suit every printing project
    requirement, the reasons to buy anything but originals are becoming
    less and less convincing.”Innovationstechnik tested a minimum of 17
    cartridges per cartridge type and brand to ensure statistical validity,
    though in some case more cartridges were tested as necessary to adhere
    to ISO/IEC 24711, which states that a minimum of nine cartridges must
    be successfully tested. Page yield was then calculated based on all
    cartridges tested, including defective units.Similarly, the testing of
    a minimum of 17 cartridges tested per cartridge type and brand ensured
    statistical validity for the reliability tests performed by
    Innovationstechnik. Reliability problems were expressed as the
    percentage sum of dead on arrival cartridges and those that resulted in
    premature failures.For more information on test results, methodology

    Innovationstechnik report at http://www.hp.com/cc/inktest for details.
    Confronted with different comparative advertisement rules within the
    EMEA region, the percentage HP communicates across EMEA is based on
    German comparative advertisement legal rules that bound HP to
    communicate the result compared to the best German tested brand with
    34.6%, instead of the average test result of 79.5%

    (4) ‘Dead
    on arrival’ cartridges were defined as those exhibiting substantial ink
    leakage, fewer than 50 pages printed, or colour mix on 10 consecutive
    (5) ‘Premature failure’ cartridges were defined as those that
    afforded less than 75% of the average yield excluding DOAs for that
    cartridge type and brand.
