Bargain-brand toner cartridges: what are the risks?
When you next buy toner it’s worth stopping and thinking before you ‘add to cart’ if you’re considering buying from a non-branded supplier – toner that isn’t made by the manufacturer who built your printer. There are questions you should ask. For example: do all cartridges work in the same way, as reliably, and will they all work for the same amount of time? Will the print quality be as sharp? What about the color quality and will they print the same amount of pages?
But beyond those, it’s also important to think about these questions:
Is the toner safe?
Not all toner cartridges are made to international standards that keep people safe. Find out if the toner is made in state-of-the-art factories, and not in non-regulated workshops in developing countries. You want to be sure everyone who encounter the cartridges is safe with no irritants or toxins that could harm you, your co-workers or family members.
Will my printer work correctly?
Be sure that a bargain-basement cartridge won’t leak or cause your printer to break down. A poor choice could lead to service calls or parts and labor costs to repair printer damage.
Remember, using non-genuine toner could even invalidate your printer warranty.
What about my reputation?
Could a poor purchase impact on your business? Failed cartridges can lead to downtime, colleagues waiting to print, missed deadlines and poor document quality that will leave clients unimpressed. These annoying, frustrating and expensive results could impact on your reputation.
Go the trusted route
So, when thinking about performance, results, reliability, health, safety and risk, the savings you hoped you would make buying compatible supplies could amount to much less than you thought.
