What is the difference between a Zinetic compatible printer toner cartridge and the Brother OEM Toner?
A cartridge that is ‘Original Equipment Manufacture’ or OEM has been created by your printer’s brand, whereas a ‘compatible cartridge’ has been made by a third-party to fit the model you have. You may also come across the term ‘remanufactured cartridges’ which means that the toner has previously been used but has been cleaned and refilled for reuse.
Why use a Zinetic compatible printer toner cartridge instead of the OEM?
It can be easy to assume that OEM, as they’re made by the same brand as your printer, offers the best-value purchase – this isn’t always the case. Using Zinetic compatible printer toner cartridges instead will allow you to:
- Save money with your printer toner – As big brands have larger overheads, their products will be more expensive. Manufacturers who create compatible cartridges won’t incur the same R&D costs, so they’re able to offer their products for much less. This is especially helpful if you’re required to print constantly – you’ll even be able to purchase more toner with the same budget as what you assigned to OEM toner.
- Print with comparable quality to OEM cartridges – The quality of your printing should not have to decrease with the price; brand perception sees people view a brand’s own products as being of a better quality which isn’t always true. Most compatible printer toner cartridges will have the same quality as genuine cartridges, with the bonus of being much cheaper.
- Reusable printer toner is better for the environment – With remanufactured cartridges being recycled, they automatically cut down on the waste that is sent to landfill. Printer cartridges aren’t just plastic containers, they are made from several different materials including metal, foam, paper and toxic toner. So it stands to sense that anyone looking to decrease their impact on the environment should consider remanufactured products.
