A Guide to Choosing the Right Toner CartridgeApril 21, 2011 1 Comment
Sometimes, it can be difficult to actually choose your printer and even its supplies. You might feel confused especially when you are faced with the choice of going for an inkjet printer cartridge or a toner cartridge. Aside from that, you also have to consider a lot about laser toners.
So how can you be sure that you are purchasing the right one? Well, if you already decided to go for laser toner cartridges and laser printers, then here’s a quick guide to help you out in purchasing.
First of all, you need to know that a laser toner cartridge is filled with toner powder. You must also have the right drum cartridge so that you could create your prints since this is the printer part which transfers the powder to the paper.
You must also be familiar with toner cartridge terms like the yield which refers to amount of pages a toner could make, the density that shows how dark a text print would be, and the standardized testing method basically followed by printer stores who want to provide the best supplies.
There are also three types of laser toners known as the OEMs, compatibles, and remanufactured. The OEMs or original equipment manufacturer cartridges are those made by the printer makers themselves. These are usually the expensive type of printer supply. The compatible laser toners are considered as the generic form of OEM. These are produced by third party printer supply stores who wish to provide high quality printing at a lower price. The remanufactured cartridges are made up of recycled laser toners that have been carefully inspected, cleaned, refilled, and tested to ensure the quality. These are also affordable since the manufacturing process is somehow simple.
When it comes to the printer supply store, you should always check if there are other offers that cover your privacy and security as a customer. There should be money-back guarantee and return policy just in case you are dissatisfied with the item. Also, a warranty of at least one year should be given.
If you follow the quick guide here, then you won’t have a problem in getting your laser toner cartridges. Just be sure that you take time in choosing before finally purchasing that supply.
