Pros & Cons Of Toners- Brother Compatible Printer Toner Vs. OEM

Let’s first discuss Brother Compatible printer toner. The biggest advantage of using Brother compatible toner cartridges is they are a lower cost consumable. Compatible and Remanufactured toner cartridges are available for laser printers and give good quality printing at a lower cost – sometimes even half the cost of the branded cartridge.

These recycled cartridges are much more ecofriendly which means that we can recycle the biodegradable cartridge. They are now easy to find and buy.

There are compatible toner cartridges for most brands of laser printers and give good value for money. The print quality of both compatible and remanufactured toner cartridges is almost as good as the OEM brand toners.

One of the major disadvantages of compatible and re-manufactured toner cartridges is quality control during their manufacturing processes. When buying them online from an auction site or a less than reputable dealer, you never really know what quality and functionality you are going to get. Was the cartridge completely re-manufactured, or did they just “drill and fill” it? This disadvantage can be overcome buying from Ecofrank, who provides a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Now let’s discuss the OEMs.

OEM Toners are manufactured to the highest quality and level of precision. These toners are ideal for providing the best print quality. They have a much lower fail rate and have a lower probability of leaking toner into your printer. This is why the printer manufacturers recommend that you use their toner cartridges as they claim that the printer functions will be affected by other toner cartridges. They also suggest that the life of the laser printer is shortened by usage of unbranded toner cartridges.

If your work and printing demands the absolute highest quality prints you bite the bullet and pay for the OEM brand toner cartridges.

The main disadvantage of buying OEM branded toner cartridges is the relatively high cost. While they are economical because the cost per page is low, purchasing an OEM toner might cost you anywhere from £40 to £100. The initial cost of laser printers has come down but printer makers make up their low initial profit by in the cost of consumables. Another problem with OEM toner cartridges is the fact that we live in an Eco-conscious world and discarding toner cartridges which are not biodegradable is an environmental hazard. Buying a remanufactured toner is more environmentally friendly.
