What Is A Compatible Toner Cartridge?

CTEC toner cartridges
We stock a wide range of premium compatible toner cartridges

Compatible Toner Cartridges are printer cartridges that are made to work in a laser printer. They are made from all new parts, although it may not be the same brand as that of your laser printer or multi-function device. The parts in compatible cartridges are very similar to those produced in the original brand. The major advantage of this type of printer cartridge is that it is usually much cheaper than the original brand cartridge. The reason for this is that the original brand name company has to spend a huge amount of money on research and development. If you can find a reputable company to buy your compatible toner cartridges from this may be a great option and a chance to save money.

In the article the author explains that a manufacturer is legally required to give a 1-year guarantee on electrical products. They cannot have anti-competitive terms. The supplier has to prove that the third party cartridges caused the fault with the printer. They cannot just state “you used a compatible, we’re not helping”. Read your warranty and bring their attention to the details, likely in the form of “warranty does not apply if damage is caused by non-original products”.

Will Compatible Toner Cartridges from CTEC damage my printer?

To be honest there is very little that can go wrong with compatible printer cartridges that cannot also go wrong with OEM printer cartridges. Compatible Toner cartridges are manufactured according the same standards and specifications as the original or genuine toner cartridges. Therefore the same precautions need to be taken when installing, storing or replacing the cartridge as the two are technically the same. The chances that any properly manufactured toner cartridge will break a machine are slim to none. Printer cartridges usually break machines, because of human error. In his 18 years of working in the printer industry the owner of CTEC, Dillwyen Jones only found one printer cartridge that was directly responsible for breaking a client’s machine. ” In that particular case we replaced the clients machine anyway” said Dillwyen. ” If somebody can prove that our compatible toner cartridges broke their machine we are prepared to pay for his loss. No questions asked, but as I said it only happened to me once in 18 years and I have sold thousands of our compatible cartridges to many happy returning customers over and over again”
