Remanufactured toner cartridges are a viable and cost-saving alternative to new toner cartridges from the original manufacturer because they are thoroughly tested and contain new, high-quality printer toner. Even better, remanufactured toner cartridges are an ecologically responsible way to reduce the impact a company or individual has on the environment.  The truth about remanufactured toner is that print quality and page yields are equivalent to genuine name brand cartridges, however the defect rate out of the box is slightly higher than the genuine cartridges. 

The most important thing to remember about remanufactured cartridges is that the toner itself is brand new, and it is made to standards that often exceed the manufacturer’s requirements. New toner cartridges are made of sturdy plastics and other materials that have lots of life left in them once the toner supply is exhausted. These well-made and hard-wearing materials can easily be used again, so smart and innovative companies have learned how to refurbish these shells and fill them with new toner.  Highly trained technicians carefully open empty cartridges, clean them thoroughly and if necessary, replace parts that are too worn to reuse. Then, the cartridges are filled with new toner, placed in packages that helps prevent drying and decaying of the toner and offered for sale to consumers who like to save money and who find value in reusing things that are still in good condition.

Cartridges that have been remanufactured in this way, like our HP toner products, meet or exceed the original manufacturer’s specifications, and because they have been professionally examined and tested for quality both in the original manufacturing process and again by the remanufacturing company, they have been through more testing and quality assurance processes than an original-equipment cartridge.

Customers can be sure that the new toner placed inside remanufactured cartridges is of the highest quality because the company that rebuilds the cartridges stakes its reputation on each one. Its leaders know that skeptical consumers are ready to judge the company’s products harshly if they don’t perform as well original replacement parts, so these respected companies take extra care to make sure their toner is of the highest possible quality.

Remanufactured toner cartridges often cost much less than new cartridges, but because they perform the same as new cartridges, there is no negative impact to the daily operations of the company or individual that buys them. With remanufactured cartridges, it is possible to shave a bit off the bottom line with no reduction in service.

Add in the positive environmental impact from reusing good parts rather than sending them to a landfill, and switching to remanufactured toner cartridges from is an easy, intelligent and obvious decision.
