Compatible Ink Cartridges Over Original Brands.

Purchasing new OEM brand ink cartridges for your inkjet colour printer becomes very expensive in a very short time, but there are alternative ways to get the same quality standard for a lower price. Your primary options are brand name (OEM) cartridges, compatible cartridges or re-manufactured cartridges.

What does a compatible ink mean?

Compatible ink (or compatible toner) is manufactured by third party manufacturers and is designed to work in designated printers without infringing on patents of printer manufacturers.

In inkjet printing, a compatible cartridge refers to an ink cartridge that is not manufactured by the original manufacturer of your printer (called an OEM cartridge) but will function and work in the same way that an OEM cartridge would.

When you consider buying an ink cartridge for your printer, the primary factor that you need to think about is how much you want to spend. Buying a new inkjet cartridge will depend upon how much you want to pay. You can purchase a new brand name ink cartridge, or you can buy a new compatible ink cartridge.

Both types of inkjet cartridges will give you the same quality, quantity and performance.
The difference is in price of a brand name cartridge can cost about twice or trice is many cases compared to the price you would pay for a compatible ink cartridge.

How does it enlarge your savings?

Most compatible ink cartridges are not only cheaper but also contain more ink than the original branded printer inks. This makes the savings even bigger for the consumer. Once you try out a good compatible brand of ink cartridge you will never go back to getting the original branded ink.

This is a good way to go when you want to save money. Compatible cartridges are popular with consumers because of the lower cost to purchase compared to an OEM cartridge.

How does it increase the quantity of prints?

Compatible ink cartridge will print as many or more pages than your original OEM cartridge. This mainly happens because some original OEM ink cartridges were not filled. The original brand inks are not filled to the top, but the compatibles are. In this case a compatible inkjet cartridge may give you double advantage.  It can reduce your cost per cartridge and reduce your cost per page by printing more pages.

How is high quality achieved?

Compatible ink and toner are now manufactured to the highest quality matching the ISO standards set by the original brand manufacturers. Many suppliers of compatibles have a failure rate of less than 1%.

As part of the quality control, the cartridges are tested regularly by supplier in their own printers to ensure compatibility and the investigation of any issues that might arise with particular brands.

Compatible ink cartridges are specially manufactured to meet OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) specifications. They usually set very high standards of quality and reliability and offer high quality printing results, often exceeding the quality specification set by the OEM.

These cartridges are manufactured with brand new components and are an economical alternative to expensive brand name cartridges.

What about warranty?

It is a common belief that consumers are obligated to purchase expensive brand name ink cartridges from the manufacturer, or the printer’s warranty will be voided. Many printer manufacturers will state that using any compatible cartridge in your printer will void the warranty. This is not true by law; the use of compatible replacement cartridges does not void the printer’s warranty.

There is an option to buy less expensive compatible ink cartridges often realizing a savings of between 50% and 75%. All major inkjet cartridge brands have compatible versions, including Canon, Hewlett Packard, Lexmark, Brother, Epson, IBM and Xerox.
