    Deskjet 07: New HP Beta Test

    We are excited to present you with an opportunity to
    evaluate a next generation Hewlett-Packard Deskjet
    printer. This device will allow you to scan, copy and
    print documents and images. In addition, it will allow
    you to preview your photos and perform basic photo
    editing using the Photosmart Essentials software.

    We are looking for a wide range of participants from
    computer novices to experienced users. The evaluation
    period will last approximately four weeks beginning mid
    November 2006 and ending mid-December 2006.

    If selected to participate, you will be asked to spend
    a few hours per week using the HP supplied Deskjet to
    complete a series of tasks using some of the printer’s
    functionalities (e.g., scan, print, etc). You will also
    be asked to provide feedback on your experience via
    online evaluation forms. All the materials required to
    complete the tasks will be supplied as needed.

    Depending on your location, the printer will either be
    shipped or delivered to your home or office. When
    feasible, HP representatives will visit your
    home/office to observe the setup and installation of
    the Deskjet printer.

    We hope you enjoy using the Deskjet printer and look
    forward to hearing about your experience. Your feedback
    helps HP make better products.

    ** To participate, you must be available to evaluate
    the product from mid November 2006 through mid December
    2006.** (Web registration required, see below.) You
    will be notified of your acceptance into this program
    within the next few weeks.

    ======================================
    PROGRAM INFORMATION
    ======================================
    The HP Deskjet printer you will be evaluating is not on
    the market today. The term “beta” is used to refer to
    a pre-release product still under development. As a
    result, this product has not completed HP’s full
    quality assurance program and may have errors or
    defects. A beta test helps us discover unknown errors
    or defects and fix them before releasing the product.
    We have learned that HP customers may use their
    products in unanticipated ways; by placing beta
    printers in the homes/offices of users, HP is able to
    learn more about our customers.

    The delivery/setup 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 hardware, installing
    product software, and testing basic functionality. We
    ask that you please factor in this timeframe to
    complete this task.

    During the testing period we request and encourage you
    to report to HP any and all problems, issues,
    suggestions, comments, ideas and/or questions regarding
    the product. 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 installation issues
    * Error messages/defects
    * Product ease of use
    * Customer satisfaction levels

    It is our intention to leave the product at your home
    or office for the duration of the test, but in the
    event that there are unexpected difficulties with the
    product or software, we could remove the product to
    determine the cause of the issue.

    Hewlett-Packard will compensate those participants that
    complete all required To Do Items and Surveys and
    return the beta unit within 2-weeks of the end of the
    program, with a comparable production version of the
    unit approximately 6 months after the program ends.

    Well I'm sorry but..

    I am not letting some perfect stranger come into my house...

    There is something not kosher about this.

    I hope no one gets hurt, this is just not for me...

    Is the website a legitimate one? The original website is www.voc-online.com but in the link given, it's ~.voconline.com. I'm gonna verify the legitimacy of this site with VOC-Online.
