Remanufactured ink cartridge is a printer ink cartridge that has been previously used, cleaned out and then refilled with new ink. The quality of the ink is not of the same quality and reliability to that of the branded ink produced by Brother, Canon, Epson, Fuji-Xerox and Hewlett Packard etc.
Buying remanufactured printer ink may appear to be a cheap ink alternative but there are other factors involved in the decision on whether to buy non-branded or branded printer ink. Here are 5 reasons to avoid remanufactured inks.
SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED QUALITY:
Remanufactured ink cartridges provide lower quality ink with poorer quality results whereas original branded inks will provide vivid colour, sharp text, instant dry, fade resistant, reliable and hassle free results.
COMMON INCOMPATIBILTY AND SMART CHIP PROBLEMS.
Printer smart chips are designed to measure the amount of ink left in a cartridge, meaning users don’t have to wait until their printouts look bad to know they need to be replaced.
The chips will detect the ink is from a original manufacturer. The smart chip is designed for single usage, it is common for them to fail in many remanufactured cartridges.
LESS SUPPORT AND WARRANTY PROTECTION:
OEM printer cartridges come with warranty protection. This means the manufacturer will offer replacements and assistance if you ever run into problems with your cartridge. When you purchase a remanufactured cartridge, you can’t expect the same level of support and companies ignore you all together.
HIGHER FAILURE RATE:
Owing to the fact that the cartridges have been used, and they are not made to the same high standards as OEMs, you should expect repurpose cartridges to be a greater risk of failing and may cause damage to your printer.
FAKE REVIEWS AND EXAGGERATED EXPECTATIONS.
There is a large on-line market for selling cheap cartridges without taking customer care seriously and tricking consumers into purchasing low-quality goods that simply do not serve their needs.
These companies will often amplify sales and establish some credibility with customers through fake reviews. By paying people to leave good reviews for their company it is possible to trick consumers into believing they offer a superior product with their cheap ink cartridges and provide a good customer service.
