Shop for Toner by Selecting Your Printer Brand:
Almost everyone knows and understands what toner cartridges are, but beyond just ink and toner cartridges, there are different types of toner cartridges. Some may ask, what do you mean by different types of toner cartridges? I am not referring to different sizes, shapes or materials; I am referring to the distinction between genuine toner cartridges, compatible toner cartridges and refilled toner cartridges. If you are not aware of compatible toner cartridges, you may be overpaying for your toner and printer supplies. We will dive into the pros and cons of genuine toner cartridges, compatible toner cartridges and refillable toner cartridges.
Genuine toner cartridges are by far the more expensive choice for printer consumables. Genuine toner cartridges are toner cartridges in which are manufactured by the same manufacturer in which built the printer. Many printer manufacturers make little to no profit on the printers themselves, so to make up for the R&D, production and administrative costs for those printers, they mark up their toner cartridges by an astronomical expense. Due to the threat that using alternative cartridges will void their factory warranty these manufacturers end up selling a large number of toner cartridges to people who buy their printers. Overall these toner cartridges as all other toner cartridges have their defects, but tend to be a bit more reliable due to the fact that they not only manufactured the toner, they created the printer in which the toner is used.
Compatible toner cartridges are a great alternative over genuine toner cartridges. Not only are compatible toner cartridges up to 70% less than genuine toner cartridges, they are brand new cartridges. Compatible toner cartridges are brand new cartridges manufactured by a third party. These cartridges, depending on the retailer/manufacturer may or may not be backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Compatible toner cartridges sold by a reputable retailer, such as The Supplies Guys, are backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee which matches, in some cases surpasses, the same warranties in which genuine toner manufacturers offer their customers. Compatible toner cartridges are not remanufactured, refilled or refurbished cartridges, they are brand new cartridges produced by a different manufacturer.
Refilled toner cartridges may be the cheapest versions of the toner cartridges available. But the old saying really comes to life here; you pay for what you get. With refilled toner cartridges, when a genuine toner cartridge runs out of toner companies purchase these toner cartridges. These companies then proceed to fill these toner cartridges with their own toner. After they completely fill the toner they will repackage them and sell them to consumers. Many problems arise with this methodology of toner refilling, not only is it hard to get the exact match for coloring of the toner, it is intrusive and can cause damage to the cartridge while trying to refill the cartridge. Although refilled cartridges may be the cheapest option, they are not the way to go.
With more options than ever being available when you purchase your toner cartridges, which do you think you will buy next time you need to make a purchase? Will it be the overpriced genuine toner cartridge, the reliable third party compatible toner cartridge or the poorly thought out refilled toner cartridge? With compatible toner cartridges, not only are they half the price, they offer the same warranty as the genuine toner cartridges, which to me makes it a no brainer.
