Hewlett-Packards unfriendly packaging
I have a Hewlett-Packard C5180 printer/scanner/copier/kitchen sink. It’s It’s pretty darn good, as usual with HP printers, and the Windows software is pretty darn sucky, as usual with HP. Yes, this is a consistent problem with HP’s printer drivers and software. But that’s a completely different topic. The topic of this post is HP’s packaging of ink cartridges. This printer uses the 363 system, which have separate cartridges for each color, one of the reasons I chose this printer. So lets take one cartridge in it’s package, and apply a computer programmer and a pair of scissors to this packaging.
HP are welcome to explain to me why their packaging looks like this. As far as I can figure out, this package within another package is to make the packaging in French, as the inner package is not in French. Amazing. Why on earth they do not just slap a French sticker on the inner package I don’t understand, if it for some reason is impossible to produce that inner package in French. Is this customer friendly, HP? Is this environmentally friendly? No, it’s a waste of resources and energy on both HPs and my side. And… I hate bubble packages! In fact, I think almost all customers does. Get rid of the outer bubble package! It’s useless, annoying and bad for the environment.
