What to Know
Ink Quality – Most remanufactured or compatible ink cartridge companies maintain the same high quality standards of your OEM. This means all of the product specs run parallel to the original manufacture of your printer.
Is my printer in danger? – The answer is no. It is a myth that remanufactured ink will harm your printer. Of course, we cannot guarantee this, but the likelihood of this occurring is very rare; especially if you use a well known third-party supplier.
What of my warranty? – Again, there is no truth to this assumption. The use of third-party ink cannot legally jeopardize your warranty. Despite there being cases regarding such matters, courts have decided manufacturers do not have the authority to require exclusive purchases of their replacement products to avoid voiding their warranty.
Am I just getting a refilled cartridge? – Opposite to popular belief remanufactured cartridges are not just old containers refilled with new ink. Each old cartridge is inspected, repaired, and if needed, deteriorated parts are replaced. Even the microchips are replaced and tested to ensure customers receive the highest printing quality.
What about the Page Yield? – No worries. Often times you will find that remanufactured cartridges page yields are much higher. Most original manufactures hold back on filling their cartridges to the brim thus leaving the consumer with a lower page yield.
In the end, by purchasing compatible or remanufactured ink cartridge, you can save yourself money without the risk of low quality printing.
