Although you do save on the bottom line when it comes to using toner refill as opposed to an original manufacturer toner, it does pay to choose your source wisely. Going with the cheapest source doesn't save you money in the short-term or long run when you end up with a toner refill that causes you problems. Here are four reasons why you should choose a reputable toner refill.
1. If the toner refill is defective, you could ruin the control board on your laser printer.
2. You could end up with a jammed cartridge with repair costs that are more than the price of getting a new printer if you don't use a reputable toner refill.
3. You may start to have faulty fuser problems with your laser printer if you use a poor quality toner refill.
4. You could end up spending more anyway because the toner refill doesn't give you satisfactory prints and you need to replace the toner with a better product.
