Did you know that there are great resources online for helping you decide which printer is best for you? There are even great resources for helping you find the best deals of cartridges, which are known to be quite costly. A toner cartridge article that I recently read recommended buying remanufactured cartridges or compatible cartridges. I did and I saved a lot of money on my toner and my ink ? just from reading this toner cartridge article! I was amazed by the amount of money I spent and now I will not buy anything for my computer or printer without reading these consumer blogs and articles first.
The remanufactured cartridge that I got was quality, but the toner cartridge article warned that not all remanufactured cartridges and compatible cartridges are of equal quality. It all depends on the quality of the ink formula that the third party company filled the cartridge with. Ideally, the formula should be as close to the brand name? formula as possible. There are also dishonest companies out there that don’t fill up the cartridge to its maximum amount. In fact, when you purchase a printer that comes with an ink cartridge, that ink cartridge is often less than half way filled so that you are obligated to go back and purchase a cartridge in a small amount of time after receiving the printer.
The article also taught me that it is important to recycle my used cartridges when their depleted. That is important because, as it turns out, it is very easy to recycle these used cartridges into completely new cartridges. So, now when I am done with my cartridges, I save them instead of throwing them in the garbage. When I save about five or so, I send them into a third party company. That third party company then takes my cartridges, cleans the off and the refills them with their own formula of ink or toner. Then those cartridges are resold online at much cheaper values than the brand name cartridges. In fact, it is often less than half the cost of those cartridges.
