Since their inception, OEM’s have been considered the industry standard. OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, meaning that the OEM toner has been produced directly from the company and not a third-party source. However, there are a number of other things that can be better and perform at the same capacity as OEM’s. Compatible toners are the perfect toner to compliment a budget friendly option. They perform as well if not better than OEM toners and, better yet, are environmentally friendly due to their ability to be recycled after use. The only other noticeable difference is that OEM’s are made from the manufacturer and third-party distributors sell compatible cartridges in addition to OEM cartridges.
What am I Getting out of Compatible Cartridges?
To get a better picture of compatible toner’s capabilities, let’s look at the value you get from buying a compatible toner:
- You get the full benefits of an OEM’s printing capabilities including but not limited to: reliable ink production, crisp image quality, and immaculate vibrancy. Compatible materials are no less than their OEM counterparts and can produce amazing results.
- Reduced cost. Compatible toners and cartridges are considerably cheaper than their OEM counterparts. While you may think their quality in turn would suffer, compatible toners are preferred by many in the industry to reduce their costs on cartridges.
- Better transparency. The benefits of using third party manufacturers is an easier customer service experience. Manufacturers usually have a more robust customer service team backing them awaiting any and all of your questions, but can be held up by call volume. For example, AllStuff’s customer service team is on hand at all times to get you in the know about what buying compatible can offer you at any time during business hours.
If you’re looking for a cost-effective, environmentally friendly toner cartridge that produces more copies per cartridge, compatible toners are your best bet. You pay less for more on virtually every aspect comparted to their OEM counterparts and, best of all, you can recycle most of their larger components after use.
