The popularity of 3D printing is growing over the last couple of years and so as the 3D printing stocks. printing companies like 3D Systems, Stratasys, ExOne, and Voxeljet are priced to its operational perfection in the stock market. Now that HP had entered, many wonders if investors should start worrying.
Reasons HP’s entrance is a bad news for 3D investors:
- Has more resources
- Has the largest distribution network
- Lower product prices
- HP has a greater chance of spending a certain amount of money that its competitor cannot without harming HP’s business.
- Stock prices get lower when HP will not acquire any of the companies noted
- HP’s acquisition in the private market can make acquisitions slower.
- HP is cheaper
I am supposed to print some documents tonight, however, the first three pages of my outputs were looking very pale that each writings on the papers are hard to read. I just didn’t noticed then that my printer inks are empty already. The worst thing then, it’s almost midnight here already and I can’t go out to buy for new printer ink cartridges or even to look for printer inks refilling stations.
Simply saying, I am out of stocks of printer inks.
I really didn’t expect this to happen today because I just newly bought my printer, perhaps, a few weeks ago. I was printing a number of documents for school in the past weeks, though, but I still confident enough that this ain’t empty yet.
But since it is showing tonight obvious almost-transparent printed documents, the cartridges are really empty which I need to replace as soon as possible.
After almost two years that I haven’t been using my hp printer, it finally waved me goodbye.
Actually, I wasn’t grieving that much for my hp’s loss. It’s because I already have a new printer now, my canon printer.
Why did this happen so fast? I have classmates and close friends as well who used to use canon printers for a long time. Before I bought a new printer, I, of course, asked their suggestions. Majority of them shared positivity in using canon printers. Aside from the fact that it has a very affordable and cheap ink cartridges, the printer itself is also very cheap.
The canon printer that I bought last Monday, Sept. 12, 2011, is the 3 n’ 1 canon printer. It has a photo copier, a scanner and a printer in one whole thing. It, actually, was the cheapest 3 n’ 1 printer we have compared according to prices and quality when I was yet to buy one.
Up until now, I still have no problems on printing what I want to print with my new canon printer.
It has been almost two years that I didn’t use my hp laserjet printer. I just remember this because this morning, while I was looking for some medical notes from my previous year’s notes in medical school, two of my old hp laserjet ink cartridges are inside the box where I kept my old lecture notes. Haha!
The image above was from one of my old posts regarding about my hp laserjet printer and the hp laserjet ink cartridges also.
By seeing those two cartridges, aside from my old hp laserjet printer that I missed using, I also remember what my mom used to tease me before and until today. She said I am like my grandmother, dad’s mother, who used to keep things until being forgotten and only see those kept things only accidentally. Haha!
