01Myth No 1: Remanufactured cartridges are inferior to new ones
Government, major corporations and independent testing laboratories certify that properly remanufactured toner cartridges perform as well or better than cartridges made and sold as new by major printer and cartridge makers. “TRY USING remanufactured toner cartridges which now have the same quality of new ones at much lower cost” - M.I.T. News. “Remanufactured toner and ink cartridges will perform as well as or better than new ones” - Solid Waste Management Coordinating Board MN. “Remanufactured toner cartridges compare favourably to new ones in terms of print quality and product life, but cost less money” - NYC Wastele$$
02Myth No 2: Remanufactured toner/cartridges damage printers
Toner Cartridges are largely self-contained and make limited contact with printers parts. Properly remanufactured cartridges do not damage printers or create more wear than cartridges that are assembled by or for printer makers.
03Myth No 3: Use of remanufactured cartridges will void your printer warranty.
Fair trade laws absolutely forbid making use of a specific product a condition of a warranty unless the product is provided at no cost to the User.
04Myth No 4: Remanufacturers just replace the toner in cartridges.
Professional remanufacturers replace every worn or damaged component in their cartridges. Expensive imaging drums must be cleaned, tested and usually replaced. Charge rollers and other major parts are similarly treated. Microchips must be replaced to restore full functioning. Every part must be cleaned, examined and eventually replaced.
05Myth No 5: Remanufacturers reuse toner in their cartridges.
If they did, none of the cartridges would work. Toner becomes contaminated during the printing process by paper dust and electrical charges rendering it unusable. Every cartridge model requires a different toner formulation.
