New HP Printers Save On Ink & Energy

Monday, March 16th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Printing Help

Anyone who has ever had to purchase ink cartridges, especially for laser printers, can tell you they are expensive. Now HP says they have a new toner formulation for their new line of printers that will help deliver 33% more pages per cartridge.

They say the secret is in the way the cartridges are made, the new toner forulation requires far less heat to melt and produce ink. Not, only do you save ink, but HP promises you could use 50% less energy to make those prints.


The LaserJet printer has been around for 30 years and HP says it has redesigned its products from the inside out to be “leaner, faster and smarter than ever before to help meet the demands of the modern office.”  

These new printers also feature security features. They’ve  included technology that identifies counterfeit ink cartridges as well as a system called Private Print that helps keep private print jobs confidential.  Each job is kept queued in the cloud until the user verifies the job and claims it from the printer.

Additionally, there are mobile apps that will allow users to manage print jobs and print from tablets and phones.

If you’ve ever had the misfortune of getting toner all over yourself while trying to swap out a cartridge, you’ll probably appreciate the new auto seal removal that promised to make cartridge installation just a little bit easier.

The three new printers that feature the new and improves cartridge are the HP Color LaserJet Pro M252, Color LaserJet Pro MFP M277 and LasterJet Enterprise M552 and M553. The M252 is the smallest of three and would probably appeal most to smaller businesses and individuals. No price information is available yet.

    Hi…I have a query about inkjet cartridges. I wonder why genuine replacements are so dear. I am a pensioner & I buy generic cartridges to save money. I am told this voids the warranty. But you can buy a new printer for the cost of genuine replacements. If generic cartridges use ink that is not dear, why can’t genuine ones use the same ink, what is the difference?
    Thank you for a great newsletter

    Yours is a very good question, and while Cynthia may give you the best response, I think that your message hits the nail on the head. I personally believe that the printer manufactures, HP and Canon, in particular, are mainly interested in getting the consumer hooked on their lower priced printers so they can gouge us on the cartridges. Personally, I look first at the price of the manufactures cartridges before I consider buying any of their products. If more people objected to the exhortation cost of their printer cartridges, then their prices would have to come down. So goes the monopolies. Interesting that Cynthia indicated that the new HP’s will detect and reject the generic cartridges us poor folks have to buy and use. Tells us a lot about the greed of HP.
