Early last year I was talking to a friend who was in charge of a chartered accountancy business. It was a successful business which he had built up over a long period of time, and it used five printers altogether. I suggested that he  might avail himself of our compatible &/or remanufactured cartridges and save costs.

He replied that yes, he would dramatically save costs by purchasing them, but that he was not prepared to compromise the quality of his printing, nor risk downtime by using non-genuine cartridges. I did not pursue the discussion any further with him, applying the well known adage, ‘You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink ‘!

To my surprise and delight, I recently received an email from the accountant, asking if we had compatible cartridges for his printer models. He placed an order, and has since reordered. He had seen the light.

Many print cartridge consumers believe the quality and quantity of print will not be of the same standard as genuine ones. However compatible toner cartridges are manufactured to the exact OEM standards of your laser printer. They are guaranteed to be as good or better than the original cartridge. They will print the same number of pages with the same quality.

Did you know many major printer companies are selling you compatible and remanufactured toner cartridges? The problem is, you're paying full price for their brand name toner cartridge. Look at your package label. You will see in most cases the notation, "manufactured from new and recycled parts". There lies your answer.
There has been considerable improvement in time with the manufacturing standards of compatible cartridges, both in toners and ink jets. The technology used to produce compatible toner cartridges is now as good as the technology used to create OEM toner cartridges. The days of drill and fill are over. Reputable toner companies use many of the same components as outlined in OEM specifications, i.e., toner, new drums, rollers, etc.
If after reading this, you still prefer genuine cartridges, then you will have peace of mind, at a price.
