OEM vs. Compatible Ink and Toner at Supplys Guy


Supplys Guy Defines OEM Toner

Many printer users are confused about compatible ink and toner products and how they differ from OEM (original equipment manufacturer) consumables, both of which are sold at Supplys Guy. The first step in understanding the differences between the two types of products is properly defining them, and we at Supplys Guy are here to help. OEM ink and toner products are manufactured by the same company that produced the correlating printer, and are specifically designed to work in that printer only. For instance if a customer purchased a Xerox Phaser 8560DN printer and OEM ink sticks from Supplys Guy, they would be getting two products that are both manufactured by Xerox. While some customers prefer the name brand OEM consumables sold at Supplys Guy, many complain that they're too expensive.

The Supplys Guy Defines Compatible Toner

Compatible ink and toner products sold at The Supplys Guy are manufactured by a third party that is not affiliated with the printer manufacturer. These ink and toner products are designed to precisely fit in each specific printer, but may have slight differences to the OEM products. An example would be the Xerox Phaser 8560 solid ink sticks sold at The Supplys Guy that have a slightly different shape than the Xerox OEM ink sticks. The Supplys Guy warrants that their compatible produce will always work in their specific printer with no abnormal wear or reduced machine life.

OEM / Compatible Quality Differences at Supplysguy

Also, Supplysguy offers a money-back guarantee for all customers who do not see the results they desire from compatible consumable products we sell at Supplysguy.

Can Compatible Toner Save You Money?
