Finding the Best Remanufactured Toner
Posted by Ink Oasis on 11/30/2011 to Laser Printer Toner
If you own a laser printer, then you will most likely find yourself often looking for bargains on remanufactured toner. No matter whether you own a business, or simply use a laser printer for home use, the cost of a brand new toner cartridge can easily be double, or even triple what you would pay for remanufactured toner. That said, if you truly want to get the best deal on remanufactured toner, you will need to think about more than the sale price of the cartridge.

What is Remanufactured Toner?

Unfortunately, many people looking for remanufactured toner do not fully understand what it is.  Among other things there is an enormous difference between brand new toner cartridges made by a generic company and ones from the manufacturer that have been refilled. Some issues that may come up with remanufactured toner, but not generic cartridges include:

    Incorrect  toner refill amount which may cause a significant reduction in page numbers printed
    Failure to clean or refurbish various elements of the cartridge to produce the cleanest and crispest quality

Finding a Reliable Remanufactured Toner Supplier

There is no question that you should be able to find reliable remanufactured toner suppliers-- both online and offline. Unfortunately, finding the best ones can easily be a game of trial and error.  Therefore, you should buy remanufactured toner in one or two units at a time before placing any kind of bulk order. In addition, if you are going to buy in bulk, you should make sure that the warranty will extend far enough after purchase so that you can return defective units as they are discovered.

Saving Money on Remanufactured Toner

When it comes to saving the most money on remanufactured toner, you will most often be best served by looking for refills of generic units. It may also be of some help to see if you can take part in a program where you can return used toner cartridges in exchange for a discount. In some cases, you may also be able to take advantage of prepayment or automated delivery of remanufactured toner in order to save even more money. Even if you can only save a few dollars on each toner cartridge, it is sure to add up to a good bit if are planning to do a lot of printing.

As you may be aware, the toner in a laser printer gets burned onto the page in order to create letters and images.  Typically, you will find that laser toner is far more expensive, even though it may last longer than conventional printer ink. Even though you cannot refill toner cartridges on your own, you can still make use of remanufactured toner to save money. That said, before you let price be the only factor when buying remanufactured toner cartridges, you should give serious thought to how many pages the cartridge will print as well as any problems that may occur while it is in use.
