Print 2.4 Times More Prints with Original HP Inks

Would you believe that you actually save more using Original HP Inks than remanufactured inks being sold in ink refill stores? At a 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% more than remanufactured and refilled ink brands in Asia Pacific.

With regards to reliability, the study revealed that more than one in four or 25.7% of the cartridges from Asia Pacific brands of remanufactured and refilled cartridges tested were found dead on arrival (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% of average yield per cartridge type and brand), compared to Original HP Ink Cartridges that had no such reliability issues during testing.
