O.E.M Vs. Remanufactured Cartridges

Differences Between OEM & Compatible Toner Cartridges

Looking at the many cartridges and supplies available for your specific printer, you might feel a little overwhelmed. Besides finding just the right cartridge for your particular printer model, you also have to choose between many different type sof cartridges. OEM? Re manufactured? Sometimes it's hard to know what makes one cartridge different from another. Here is a basic guide to the different types and kinds of printer cartridges, outlining the differences and benefits of OEM, re manufactured compatible printer toner cartridges.

New OEM Cartridges: What is OEM toner?

You may have heard the term "OEM" used before, but what does OEM mean or stand for? OEM refers to "original equipmentmanufacturer.” In other words, if Brother made your printer, they've also made a cartridge to go with it. No doubt about it, these high quality cartridges were designed for great durability and undeniable precision. Naturally, that translates into good print quality, but all of that comes at a much higher price.

The obvious downside is the cost. Did you know that printers are often sold with small profit margins because companies know that they will make their largest profit from selling OEM cartridges? For that reason alone, the name brand company that made your printer will claim that you may shorten the life of your printer by using generic cartridges. This is simply not true! OEMs charge exorbitant prices for their cartridges. One of the biggest controversies surrounding OEM cartridges is how much toner is left over in the cartridge when printer models shut down due to "low toner." Some cases have shown that40% of the expensive toner you paid for is left overin that 'dead cartridge' you are about to replace! After all, it's common knowledge that brands such as Brother, HP, Canon, Epson etc. don't make their money on their printer sales, but make huge profits on new and overpriced OEM cartridges instead.

Compatible Printer Toner

What are compatible cartridges? Compatible Toner is like buying a generic car part. A separate company simply creates their own version of the cartridge to work in your printer just like the OEM cartridge. As you might expect, some compatibles are of an inferior quality, but there are plenty of compatible printer cartridges out there that hold their ground next to their OEM counterpart. That's why it's so important to find a time tested provider like Boundybiz.com that offers only high quality Compatible Laser Cartridges at great savings to you.
