HP clarifies printer warranty wording

The Hungarian unit of IT equipment maker Hewlett Packard (HP) has agreed to change the text of warranties for its printers which imply that buyers must use only HP equipment in order for the service guarantee to remain valid, Hungary's Competition Office (GVH) said yesterday. HP will also publish announcements that compatible products, such as ink cartridges, made by other companies may be used with the printers without affecting the warranty. As a result of the measures, GVH decided to suspend procedures against HP. (Econews)
