How many time times do you hear people say, “Don’t buy compatible or remanufactured toner cartridges because they damage your printer”? You may have even said it yourself.
Due to the amount of low quality toner cartridges that are manufactured without stringent quality control and by clone manufacturers with no industry accreditations, I can understand why non OEM toners are perceived this way. The truth is that not all non OEM toners are poor quality.
In today’s printer consumable market, there is an abundance of cheap low quality products, but the old saying goes “You get what you pay for”. If you buy compatible cartridge based on the fact that they are much cheaper than other compatible cartridges, then you will end up with a poor quality product that is likely to damage your machine and give poor quality prints.
What you should look for is a lower cost alternative to the OEM cartridge. By this I mean, it’s not the cheapest cartridge you can find, but it will make you a cost saving from buying the OEM. You can also check for the manufacturer accreditations, this will also give you an idea of how good the product is.
Good manufacturers will also give a guarantee to cover costs in the event of a damaged printer or copier.
To get back to my point, always look for a lower cost alternative to the OEM from a reputable manufacturer and you can save money and if you are a reseller, a good quality manufacturer will protect the reputation of your business.
I hope this helps explain a few things – we would love to hear your comments.
