本研究以大台北地區企業現職員工為調查對象，選擇個人數位助理(PDA) 、數位影音光碟機(DVD player) 、多媒體筆記型電腦、行動電話、MP3 隨身聽與數位相機等六種創新資訊產品，探討消費者期望與新產品特性對顧客購買意願的關係。經實證結果發現:消費者期望對六種新產品的購買意願多有顯著影響;在新產品特性方面，研究發現六種新產品的功能導向、享樂導向與新穎性三種特性對消費者的購買意願多有顯著影響。研究結果建議資訊廠商要想提高消費者新產品的購買意願，應針對不同消費者的產品屬性期望，配合新產品特性擬定對應的新產品行銷策略。 A field study was conducted to examine if purchase behavior was systematically related with consumer expectations and new products characteristics.
