January 11, 2008, Newsletter Issue #97: Options in Copier Toner Cartridges

Tip of the Week

There are four main options when it comes to copier toner cartridges. Below is some information on each. OEM Copier Toner Cartridges - OEM means “Original Equipment Manufacturer” meaning that these types of cartridges come direct from the manufacturer that made your copier. These are the most reliable but also the most expensive to purchase. Generic Copier Toner Cartridges - Generic cartridges are made by after-market manufacturers who have the ability to make compatible cartridges for your printer type. The design and make of these cartridges are the same as the OEM cartridges, but are far less expensive. Remanufactured Copier Toner Cartridges – Remanufacturing of copier toner cartridges consists of taking the unit apart, cleaning it, and refilling it. These cartridges are well tested for quality and will usually give you similar printing results as either OEM or generic cartridges. Toner Refill Kits - Refill kits for copier toner are beneficial because they are refillable with bottled toner. This will save you the cost of purchasing a new cartridge each time you run out.

However, these are less easy to use and can have varying results in terms of quality.
