    Time limitation of 363 ink cartridges is a catastrophy for HP

    HP engineers go to great lengths to protect the customers from bad experiences. The reason for the expiration date is unknown. It may be that quality of the print would be poor. Soda stored in plastic bottles goes flat after time. . It may be that the ink after a long storage would damage the part that sprays the ink. Antifreeze loses its corrosion protection after time. It may be that the cartridge could develop a leak when put in a printer after long storage time damaging the printer Faucets drip after time. If the engineers design the product for the very, very few, the cost must be borne by all the customers. They will be forced to pay features that they never use.

    Sentiment: Hold
