ALL ABOUT PRINTER INK CARTRIDIGES
Printer ink cartridge is a tough budget line for any office to swallow. For top of the line printers, a replacement ink cartridge can cost hundreds of ringgit. Why are those things so expensive? And is there any way around these outrageous costs?
At OfisKita, we have worked very hard to find a manufacturer of compatible ink and toner cartridges that can save your cost. This blog will explain the two different types of ink cartridge alternatives that exist and how OfisKita ensures the quality is equivalent to or better than the name brand at a much cheaper price.
A. TYPES OF PRINTER INK CARTRIDGES
Original ink cartridges are manufactured by the printer brand manufacturer. Printer manufacturers put a lot of research into these cartridges and they are more expensive because of it. If your printer is brand spanking new and has just arrived on the market, it is possible that their branded cartridges are the only ones that will initially be compatible. The cost of original cartridges is always higher than remanufactured or new build cartridges because these are the name brand cartridges and the printer manufacturer’s business model demands it.
Compatible cartridges, are totally brand new printer cartridges that work and function just as—or better—than an original cartridge. The only difference is they are produced by a third party other than the manufacturer that made your printer. These cartridges function the same but are built in a different way, which differentiates them from the name brand. New builds are the cheapest option of the three. OfisKita believes compatible ink cartridges combine the best specifications of both the Original and remanufactured cartridges. Ink cartridges are cheaper than the Original and they are a brand new design, so they do not have the wear and tear and durability risk that remanufactured cartridges have.
B. THE DIFFERENCES
Most original ink cartridges are either patented or copyrighted to work with a particular machine. Due to this copyright, the compatible inks must use a slightly different design – one which may not be ideal for your printer. This can cause issues down the road, such as unnecessary wear on your printer, a higher rate of failure and lower quality print outs.
THE COMPATIBLE ADVANTAGE
The main benefit of choosing a compatible ink is that it's cheaper. However, there can be a difference between price and value. A compatible ink may be inconsistent and have a shorter lifespan. This means that while you pay less initially, you may end up buying more cartridges because they don't last as long.
THE ORIGINAL DISADVANTAGE
The only downside to original ink is that it comes with a higher price tag – though it may be offset by the lifespan of the toner itself. An original ink will generally provide you with more consistent results, last longer and is covered by manufacturer’s warranty.
C. WHY CHOOSE COMPATIBLE OVER ORIGINAL ?
1. COMPATIBLES ARE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
Using compatible cartridges reduces pollution associated with landfilling, incineration and the manufacturing of new cartridges. On average, each compatible cartridge can be sold prevents as much as 3 pounds of waste from going into landfills.
2. SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE
High quality compatible cartridges have been tested and verified by independent third-party organizations to print more pages at a darker density level than equivalent Original cartridges.
3. COST EFFECTIVE
Original ink cartridges are more expensive and there is not a big difference in quality between the Original and compatible ink cartridge. According to analysts, Original has margins of 60% or more on their imaging supplies. Compatible ink cartridges can save consumers from 10%-30% off by using a higher percentage of recycled components.
Last but not least, the various green benefits of using compatible cartridges range from saving energy, avoiding landfills, to decreasing greenhouse gases. Get your CRE8 compatible ink cartridges from https://www.ofiskita.my/ink-toner/ciss
