$100 GC for HP Beta Test

Hewlett-Packard (HP) would like to invite you to participate in an upcoming beta program for a new wireless deskjet printer! A beta program is an opportunity for you to evaluate and provide feedback on your experience with a new pre-release product. The printer you would receive allows printing of documents and photos and also provides wireless printing capabilities when connected to your wireless network. If you are selected to participate in this test you will receive, at no cost to you, everything you will need to completely evaluate the product.

We are primarily looking for someone who is also interested in printing photos at home and is willing to install the printer wirelessly. The evaluation period will last for four weeks beginning in late March 2009 and will run for 4 weeks.

During the four-week evaluation period, you will be asked to complete a series of tasks using your Deskjet printer. Completion of the tasks should not take more than a couple of hours per week but we hope that you'll spend even more time using the product for personal projects. Upon completion of the tasks, you'll be asked to provide your feedback through an online survey.

** To participate, you must be available to test the printer from late March 2009 through late April 2009.** (Web registration required, see below.) If selected, you will be notified of acceptance into this program within the next few weeks. If you are not selected, we will keep your information on file for future programs.

We are looking for evaluators who:

Have an interest in printing photos at documents at home
Willing to install and use a printer wirelessly
Can spend two-three hours per week evaluating a product
Willing to provide feedback both in person and through an online survey about your experience

The HP printer you will be evaluating in this program is not currently available for purchase. A beta program is a unique opportunity for you to evaluate and provide feedback on your experience with a new product concept. We have learned that HP customers may use their products in unanticipated ways so by placing early units in the homes/offices of users, HP is able to learn more about our customers and make a better final product.

The delivery/set-up of your unit would involve two or three HP employees/representatives coming to your home/office for up to three hours to observe your experience in setting up the printer and evaluating basic functionality.

During the evaluation period we request and encourage you to report any and all problems, issues, suggestions, comments, ideas and/or questions regarding the product to HP. You will be able to easily communicate with HP through your personal VOConline Feedback Center.

There are specific areas of interest where your feedback will be particularly valuable. These include:

Product setup issues
Error messages/defects
Product ease of use
Customer satisfaction
If you are selected for this program, our intention is to leave the product at your home/office for the entire evaluation period. In certain situations; however, it may be necessary to remove the unit early. If this is the case, a prepaid FedEx airbill will be supplied. After the evaluation period, everyone who completes all applicable To Dos and Surveys and returns the beta unit within 2 weeks of the end of the program will receive a $100 HPShopping.com electronic gift card as a thank you for your time.
