    HP original inkjet print cartridges have edge over refillables, survey shows
    LUMPUR MALAYSIA: IT giant Hewlett-Packard’s (HP) original inkjet print
    cartridges produce over twice as many pages compared to Asia-Pacific
    brands of manufacturers and refilled ink cartridges, a survey
    showed.More than one in four cartridges from Asia-Pacific brands of
    remanufactured and refilled cartridges, tested by a technical test
    organisation TUV SUD PSB, could not be used or failed prematurely, HP
    said yesterday.

    According to the survey on cartridge yield and
    reliability study for Asia Pacific, HP said the findings showed that
    its original cartridges had no reliability issues during
    testing.Refilled ink cartridges were found to be lacking in reliability
    and yield. In the tests on average original HP print cartridges, they
    produced almost 2.5 times as many pages more than refilled cartridges
    which were also found to have an extremely high failure rate.From left:

    The details of the
    survey were revealed by its country general manger, imaging and
    printing group of Hewlett-Packard (M) Sdn Bhd, Yan Yoke Ping.“HP has
    long being concerned that ink cartridge users across Asia Pacific are
    not aware of the reliability issues when using remanufactured and
    refilled cartridges,” she said, explaining that the survey was to
    reveal the hidden costs involved to help consumers make a more informed
    choice,” she said.TUV SUD assistant vice president of testing services
    Tan Lee Heng said the test findings showed that original HP inkjet
    cartridges, on average produced 106.6% more pages compared to refill
    brands tested, and 59.8% more pages compared to branded remanufactured
    cartridges.The page yield and reliability of HP branded inkjet
    cartridges were evaluated against 14 brands of remanufactured or
    refillable cartridges, which were selected from six Asia-Pacific
    countries based on sales and usage.

    Page yield findings show
    that on average, HP original cartridges produce twice as many pages
    than remanufactured and refillable cartridge brands.Cartridge
    reliability results prove that one in four remanufactured and
    refillable brands had experienced substantial ink leakage, colour
    mixing and failure in print-on installation.HP imaging and printing
    group regional market manager for Japan and Asia Pacific Neel Pillai
    said that a refillable cartridge would cost the consumer RM30 compared
    to an original HP cartridge priced at RM80.However, HP cartridges
    produce 2.4 times more page yield, which means a refillable that
    produces the same amount of pages would cost RM75, he said.
