What’s the Difference Between Remanufactured Toner and Compatibles?
Have you ever wondered about the difference between remanufactured toner and compatible toner cartridges?
Trying to make the best buying decision for your company?
While there’s no distinction in print quality based on manufacturing type (compatible vs. remanufactured vs. original equipment manufacturer (OEM), there are differences across various brands and manufacturers owing to the manufacturing conditions as well as the post-manufacturing evaluation process.
- Compatible toner is built from scratch to fit into your printer just like the OEM product would. Compatibles are usually made with single use plastics, so keep in mind that while they’re usually the cheaper option, they’re terrible for the environment.
- Remanufactured cartridges use existing cartridges that have been made by OEM manufacturers (HP, Brother, Canon, etc.) and the guts are replaced – things like springs and rollers in the cartridge. The cartridges are also inspected for quality and refilled with ink or toner.
