InkMart Canada – Why Choose Us?
New OEM (Original Equipment Manufactured) vs. Remanufactured
Do you purchase replacement at the nearest electronics store or big-box chain store? Most people don’t give it too much thought, and thats why companies like HP are selling billions of dollars worth of these products. The thing is you don’t have to buy a replacement ink jet cartridge or a replacement toner only from the manufacturer or from the big mainstream electronics depot. You could beat the system by buying online.
For less than what the big-box chain stores like Staples or Office Depot charge for a remanufactured cartridge product, more often than not you can have an ‘OEM’ original part. Instead of purchasing retail, consider ordering from an established online vendor like InkMart, an independent source that carries replacement ink cartridges and replacement toners at a much more affordable price.
So how do you distinguish between all of the different options?
Generally there are three types of ink cartridges and toners. There are OEM cartridges, remanufactured cartridges refilled with ink, and compatible cartridges, which are new ink cartridges with replacement toners. When you purchase OEM, you’re getting a replacement part supplied from the manufacturer in its original condition. A remanufactured ink cartridge or replacement toner is a used cartridge that has undergone repackaging and refilled with ink. Companies known as remanufacturers will often take a used, empty ink cartridge, open the top or drill a hole through, fill it with ink, seal it and return it to the customer for use. It’s a process that can take 15 minutes to do but once remanufactured, the results will vary because these “drill and fill” remanufacturers do not then test the cartridges to be certain that the moving parts of the cartridges are performing up to OEM standards to assure good printing quality. There are some kits available on the market that allow you to convert your old cartridges into remanufactured ink cartridges yourself, but you won’t be able to test the cartridges for quality either. Handling toner can be dangerous to your health as well, if you don’t have the proper training. Inevitably it’s up to you to decide what your printing priorities are – quality or not.
A new compatible ink cartridge or new compatible toner is created of entirely new parts and is very similar to the originally manufactured product. The remanufactured ink cartridge is not quite the same as a compatible cartridge because it has undergone some wear. The ink heaters can become set out of range so that they work at a level that is either to hot or not hot enough. A remanufactured cartridge is also more likely to have a clogged jet. An aftermarket solution generally used for its money saving potential. If you’ll be doing a lot of picture printing on photo paper, you may want to go with a new original cartridge. There are people in the photography industry who feel that refill ink does not measure up to their needs. Are they right? Possibly, but it’s guaranteed that a refilled ink cartridge is a cheaper alternative to purchasing brand new OEM ink cartridges. Either way, InkMart can save you substantial money on either new OEM cartridges or remanufactured cartridges, compared to other suppliers.
Is refill ink worth the savings? The answer depends on what your needs will be. If you’re printing documents regularly without graphics or photos, refill ink may the perfect thing for you. No matter what your focus is — quality with beauty or black and white masses of volume of documents, you are now empowered to make the right decision.
