Compatible inkjet cartridges warrant a look

By Anne Mary Subscribe to RSS | December 15th 2011 | Views:

There is a widely held misconception that by using remanufactured or compatible inkjet cartridges the warranty issued on the original purchase of the actual printer will, in some way, become invalid. This is something that is an understandable assumption, but nevertheless, a completely false one. Initially, this was a route the OEM's (Original Equipment Manufacturer) did look to go down, but after some considerable pressure from the European Union and American Fair Trade laws, they relented and accepted that such a course of action was indeed not only unfair, but potentially unlawful.

This is because remanufactured or compatible inkjet cartridges are manufactured in accordance with all the original specifications, meaning that there could never be a case to answer. Naturally, should any of the recycled cartridges fail to meet such specs, then that naturally would create a different set of circumstances entirely. This is why it is important to stick with the known professionals of the industry, as they guarantee that identical build specs will be used on their recycled cartridges, and thus avoid any potential warranty issues. There is a long established belief that if something seems too good to be true, or in other words, too cheap to be genuine, then it most probably is not what it appears to be, therefore it is best to steer clear of the apparent bargains.

That’s not, of course, to suggest that either remanufactured or compatible inkjet cartridges are in any way expensive. On the contrary, their appeal is the significant savings that they offer. Should the price appear exceptionally low, then it would be advisable to check the finer details, as these are likely to be the cartridges that would induce an action to void the printer warranty. All the leading manufacturers have details on their websites that clarify the warranty situation, and they all are compelled to give assurances regarding the use of either of the recycled options, provided that they are built to original specifications.

In addition, these alternative cartridges will, in most cases, be produced with their own separate warranty ticket, giving a second piece of reassurance. They also do their bit for the environment, as many consumable items, which would otherwise be discarded and simply be part of the planet's growing waste problem, are actually put to good use and re-entered into the system. The constituent parts and base materials are subjected to stringent testing and if anything, they are very often able to produce a greater number of prints than the original.

Compatible inkjet cartridges have made massive strides in recent years, so much that it is practically impossible to tell the difference now between this and the OEM version. The quality is of a high standard in both the color and greyscale options. It is always advisable to check that the printer can actually accommodate the recycled models, although, as they are chiefly self contained units, they are never going to have any great contact with, or impact on the rest of the printer. The days of coughing up a small fortune to replace the simple printer cartridge are well and truly over, now that the compatible or remanufactured versions offer a greater value for money.
