Types of Toner Cartridges

Toner CartridgesToner Cartridges

Kinds of Toner Cartridges include the following:

Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) toner cartridges

OEM toner cartridges are made by printer manufacturers to be used only in their printer models. They are the most expensive toner cartridges, but also the most reliable.

Compatible toner cartridges

Compatible toner cartridges are made by third-party manufacturers using brand-new cartridge parts. They are designed to match OEM quality standards, but at a much lower price. They are also made for specific printer brands.

Remanufactured toner cartridges

Remanufactured toner cartridges are made from recycled cartridge parts that have been cleaned and reconditioned, and refilled with toner powder. They are the least expensive among all toner cartridges, but are not very reliable.

Choosing Toner Cartridges (Buying tips)

Compatibility: When buying a generic toner cartridge, make sure it is compatible with your printer brand and model. Also check the warranty terms of your printer or copier if they cover the use of non-OEM cartridges.
