What is the difference between a color laser and a color ink jet printer?

Both are good quality printers. Ink jet printers are less expensive to purchase. They require the purchase of color cartridges, which can be expensive. Ink cartridges may be able to print about 200 pages before requiring replacement.

What is a compatible cartridge?

A compatible cartridge is compatible with OEM, and is manufactured by a third party. Usually there is no difference in quality.

Do you really need a fast printer?

Faster printers tend to be more expensive. A black-and-white laser jet that prints 40 pages per minute (ppm) is about the fastest you can get for a reasonable price. The fastest standard color laser printer runs about 26 ppm

How long is the typical lifespan of a printer-photocopier?

Printers and photocopiers are generally robust pieces of office machinery, with high end models being designed for very large volumes of printing. With frequent servicing and the use of manufacturer approved ink, paper and other consumables, there is no reason why a printer or photocopier won’t have a considerable lifespan, even up to 10 to 15 years. Some parts, such as drums, rollers, belts and print heads may need cleaning or even replacing (which may be included in your maintenance contract) but this is cheap when compared to buying a new machine

What is an original or oem cartridge?

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. OEMs, such as HP, Canon, Samsung, Brother, Epson, Xerox, OKI and Lexmark are the companies that manufacture your printers. OEM cartridges are cartridges that are branded under your OEM’s brand. We offer both OEM and less expensive generic products. All our products are fully compatible with OEM standards.

What is a re-manufactured cartridge?

This is a recycled cartridge that is disassembled by third parties (other than OEMs). To guarantee print quality, remanufactured cartridges are tested, cleaned internally, worn parts replaced, refilled, tested under stringent conditions and repackaged

What is the printing capacity of a typical printer tonercartridge?

Printing capacityThe amount of pages you can print or copy on one toner or ink cartridge varies greatly between makes and models, so there is no hard and fast guideline. As a general rule, manufacturer approved toners and ink cartridges last longer and are more cost effective, despite the higher initial outlay. You will also achieve a greater yield of printing by switching to a draft or lower resolution output where possible, as this uses less ink. However, for most printers and copiers you are looking at a few thousand pages per toner. An estimate of yield is usually given with new toners to help you purchase.

If I purchase a compatable cartridge and it doesn't work in my printer, can i return it?
