HP Smart Tank 6001 All-in-One

I just purchased an HP Smart Tank 6001 printer.  The box the printer came in and the online marketing I've found for this printer (and motivated me to chose it) says the following:

 

  • "FULLY LOADED WITH SAVINGS – Perfect for low-cost, high-volume printing—up to 2 years of Original HP Ink Bottles included; get up to 8,000 color pages or 6,000 black pages right out of the box"

My question: does HP believe that the bottles they shipped with the printer will last "up to 2 years"?  Or is there some offer that was supposed to be available through a printed flyer in the box or through registration that would have provided for "up to 2 years of Original HP Ink Bottles"?

Hi @noinkinus,

 

Welcome to HP Support Community.  
 

Thank you for posting your query, I will be glad to help you. 

 

Ink is used in a number of ways throughout the printing process. In general, ink in an ink cartridge is used for printing documents, photographs, and other such materials. Some ink, however, must be used to maintain the health of the print head; some ink is residual; and some ink evaporates. These uses of ink are common, in varying degrees, to printers from all inkjet printer manufacturers.

 

The methodologies used to measure page and photo yield do not account for all the uses of ink described above and therefore your actual yield may vary considerably from the published yield (see Inkjet page yields and Inkjet photo yields). HP designs its inkjet printer systems to deliver outstanding value in printing customer documents while using enough ink to maintain a reliable printing system that delivers outstanding print quality over the life of the printer.

I hope this helps. 
Take care and have a good day.
