Compatible vs Genuine

Will compatible Toner & Ink cartridges work as well as the genuine?

Yes…. Compatible Toner & Ink manufacturers have developed their own solutions that work just as well as genuine product – ie: Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).

They have had the opportunity to reverse engineer the OEM product allowing them to develop outstanding ink and toner solutions to ensure the quality of the finished printed page is of the same quality you are familiar with.

People have embraced non genuine ink & toner cartridges.

Why? Because they come with a guarantee to deliver the same quality as the OEM products, but at a fraction of the price.

Don’t be bullied by OEM printer manufacturers

If you do you will lose the opportunity to make significant savings. In today’s competitive marketplace, printer manufacturers often use scare tactics to maintain their unrealistic profit margins, such as claiming the use of non genuine toner and inkjet cartridges will void manufacturers warranty.

This is simply not true, just like vehicle manufacturers cannot cancel your warranty because your chose a competitor to service your vehicle, you have the right of choice for your home or office equipment.

Schedule 2 Part 3-2 of the Competition & Consumer Act 2010

“If a part is ‘non- genuine’ but is interchangeable with a ‘genuine-part’ then the non-genuine part would still be seen as fit for purpose, and therefore would therefore not void any manufacturers guarantee/warranty. Such warranty can only be voided when the cartridge itself is faulty and causes damage to the printer.”

With the latest technology and a superior quality of print solutions, colour and mono copier toners have been tried and proven worldwide.

Why do compatibles sometimes look different, yet work the same?

Patents protect most OEM printers and cartridges, so manufacturers of compatible cartridges may be required to redesign their products to avoid intellectual property infringement.

This allows the compatible manufacturers to make any improvements necessary to the original design in order to deliver optimal cartridge performance. So, although compatibles may look different to the original product the quality and suitability is assured.

These cartridges are brand new and not re-manufactured.

If a cartridge shell cannot be redesigned, due to patent restrictions, the original cartridge may be refilled, with any used component replaced.

In summary

The choice is yours – if you are looking for toner or ink that is considerably more affordable than the Original equipment manufacturer – then give the compatibles a try
