REMANUFACTURED TONER CARTRIDGES – A MISUNDERSTOOD ALTERNATIVE
We all know someone who is
loyal to a brand, who will not use an alternative product because what they use
works well and anything that is cheaper or labelled an alternative just wouldn’t
be good enough, right? Wrong!
There are alternative products
out there that are cheaper to buy, don’t need to be replaced as often, and work
just as well - if not better – than the ‘original’ product.
A good example of this is
remanufactured toner cartridges, so why do consumers still have their doubts?
Perhaps they have had a bad experience with buying a cheaper alternative and
the phrase ‘you get what you pay for’ is now permanently etched in their mind.

then refilled and tested before being sold.
They are environmentally
friendly because of the way in which they are produced, and in some cases, can
be up to 70% cheaper than most originals without quality or performance as the
Compatible cartridges are
created as copies of an OEM (original equipment manufacturer). Companies will
create a mould that mirrors the original cartridge. Often, they can be made
from inferior materials and is this is one of the main reasons they are priced
There can be other issues with
compatible cartridges however, such as copyright infringement and poor print
quality as well as a lack of information or support for the products once they
In summary, it really does
come down to doing your research; if you have any doubts about remanufactured
toner cartridges then ask questions, and ultimately don’t be afraid to try
something different because ‘new’ can be good, for your pocket, for the environment,
for your printer. To purchase remanufactured toner cartridges, visit the redbuscartridgecompany.com or call 0800 091 9090
