Anyone that uses a computer seldom goes through life without ever having to use a printer. This ubiquitous gadget on ones desktop has a vast, multi-billion dollar industry behind it, led by notable names such as HP, Canon, Lexmark, Brother, Dell, Epson, Samsung and more.
Has it ever occurred to you how these companies can manage to offer fancy printers with cutting edge technologies at such low prices? By buying one of these printers, you are hooked for life, your printer’s life that is, for you will need to keep buying printer inkjet cartridges every time you run out of one. And the cartridges aren’t so reasonably priced!
Should you then resign yourself to the fact that you will be made to bleed as long as you need to use printers or is there a way out? Fortunately, there is a way out. The answer lies in using compatible or remanufactured printer cartridges from third parties, which offer savings of as much as 50% over buying original cartridges. In doing so, you are of course drawing a line between quality and cost, since you can’t expect original quality when you enjoy almost 50% cost savings.
How this saving is achieved? There are several ways. You can buy compatible cartridges from third parties. Since each printer brand and model has its own design and features, you need to buy an exact compatible. For repeated usage of the same cartridge, third parties offer something called as remanufactured cartridge, which is essentially a re-filled cartridge, cartridge which you previously used. There are numerous third parties, who offer these services, each with their own unique selling propositions and warranties. While you enjoy cost benefit, on the flip side, you are dependent on third party for delivery. There are many a time when you need to print something very urgently and the cartridge has run out of ink.
Toner refill kits or cartridge refill kits come to the rescue. All you need to do is buy ink in bulk and refill the cartridges yourself with the help of this kit. Though it is relatively a simple process, it can be a messy affair for the inexperienced. Bulk inks are available in pints, quarts and gallons. A pint of ink can easily refill about 15 large capacity cartridges. Toner refill kits differ for different brands and models and one would need to use an appropriate kit for best results. Though the process to refill varies from cartridge to cartridge, essentially the process involves opening the cartridge ink inlet, filling the ink and plugging the inlet. Some printer manufacturers employ a built-in counter chip, such as Epson and Lexmark. However, it is possible to reset the chip using a chip resetter.
