ORIGINALS OR COMPATIBLES............Your choice

With global recession biting hard and prices increasing rapidly, businesses and consumers are looking for more ways to save money. As a result, the sale of compatible printer consumables is increasing but many people are still confused about the implications of using non-branded inks, toners and drums in their machines.

What are compatibles?

Compatible cartridges are non-branded consumables produced by third parties, as opposed to the printer manufacturer.

How are compatible toner cartridges made?

Refurbished cartridges are completely stripped down and rebuilt from scratch, using reconditioned components, or brand new ones where necessary. The cartridges are reassembled to the original manufacturer’s specifications and given a full load of toner; as a result, cartridges produced in this way can be at least equal in build quality to the originals.
Some compatible cartridges are simply refilled.

What are the advantages of using compatible toner cartridges?

The obvious advantage is cost - compatible toner cartridges are now available for a wide range of printers and can save you up to 40% compared with original, branded cartridges.

What about print quality?

Since the majority of office printing is Word documents, e-mails, invoices etc., there will be no discernible difference in quality between compatible and original cartridges. However, if you are printing high coverage images where quality is paramount, you will obtain better results from using original inks and toners.

How reliable are they?

Most remanufactured cartridges that are made in a controlled environment should be as reliable as original cartridges and will come with their own warranty.
TonerCart compatible toners have a 3 year warranty on every product.

Will using remanufactured or compatibles invalidate my warranty?

The short answer is NO - using compatible toner cartridges does not invalidate your printer warranty.

As you might expect all printer manufacturers would like you to use their brand of toners in their printers. They might give the impression that to use anything other than their own products will invalidate your printer's warranty. But that is not the case, and the extract below from the market leader HP's warranty statement provides clear evidence of that.

"The use of non-HP print cartridges does not affect either the warranty or any maintenance contract purchased from Hewlett-Packard."

To Sum Things Up...

In conclusion, compatible toners are a sensible option for everyday use. We use compatibles in our own “general” printers but they are best avoided when colours need to be accurate and quality is paramount. The decision on whether to save money by purchasing compatible consumables is entirely yours; TonerCart sells both original and compatible cartridges. All the compatibles we sell are manufactured to the highest standards and our cartridges are built in an ISO 9001 certified factory, designed to at least meet the manufacturer’s specifications.

So if you want to:
Save Money
Help the environment
Reduce profits for the big printer companies
Increase YOUR profits
Then make sure you order Compatible Toner.

When buying laser toner one should carefully choose the correct model, as with so many toner cartridge models it can get rather confusing. Also, you should make up your mind whether you wish to use original or compatible / recycled toner cartridges. If you purchase Grade A quality compatible or remanufactured toner cartridges from us for example, the quality difference between them and the originals will be very minimal. Page yields in our cartridges are NEVER less than those of original toners. However, be aware that some other companies are selling lower grades of stock. So if you have had a bad experience with remanufactured and recycled toners, it doesn't mean that everybody sells poor quality printer cartridges. From TonerCart you can purchase in confidence as all our printer cartridges come with a full 3 year warranty.

If you can't find your printer, cartridge or the brand that you're looking for, please contact us and we'll try to help you.
