Xerox Offers HP Customers Lower Cost, Higher Yield with New Compatible Printing Cartridge


ROCHESTER, N.Y., Dec. 08, 2005 -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) is offering Hewlett-Packard customers a way to save money and be more productive with a new printing cartridge that delivers a 36 percent lower cost-per-print than existing HP cartridges and prints 10 percent more pages.

The latest addition to Xerox’s “It’s Compatible” line of toner cartridges can be used in HP’s newest black-and-white products, the HP LaserJet 4250 and 4350 printers, which are targeted to office workgroups and entry-level production printing environments.

The Xerox cartridge contains a microchip that supports HP “smart print” functions, enabling the printer to automatically recognize the cartridge and indicate when toner is low. It also indicates how many prints remain before the cartridge needs to be replaced.

“The printing consumables industry is competitive, and Xerox’s ability to keep pace with new product introductions is a testament to the company’s continued innovation and commitment to the ’It’s Compatible’ line,” said John Shane, director, Communication Supplies Consulting Service, at InfoTrends/CAP Ventures, a market research and strategic consulting firm.

All Xerox “It’s Compatible” products have a one-year, 100 percent performance guarantee or the price of the cartridge will be refunded. Consistent with Xerox’s commitment to responsible and environmental business practices, each product box contains a pre-paid postage label that allows customers to send used cartridges back to Xerox to be recycled.

Xerox offers compatible cartridges for approximately 95 percent of HP’s LaserJet black-and-white printers. The Xerox replacement cartridge for the HP LaserJet 4250 and 4350 series is available Dec. 15 in the United States and will be available in January in Canada and Europe. The online price is $156.79, and the cartridge is available for purchase at, as well as through Xerox direct sales representatives, authorized sales agents, resellers, dealers and concessionaires.
