More About Dell Ink Cartridges

Opting for a remanufactured printer cartridge or an OEM printer ink cartridge is a great way to save money and save the environment. However, there is a difference between the two alternatives. OEM is more commonly used, but the benefits of using the remanufactured counterpart is more cost effective and beneficial overall.

It is important to understand what it means for a product to be OEM, or remanufactured, to make an informed decision on which to use. To begin, OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. This means that a company makes products for others to repackage and sell. The reseller will buy OEM products in bulk, but without the retail packaging that is so costly in individually sold units. While the product is essentially the same as the retail packaged counterpart, OEM products are much more cost effective. The other option is to purchase a remanufactured Dell printer ink cartridge. This method utilizes a properly recycled Dell printer ink cartridge that is refilled with printer ink. Usually a company not associated with the original manufacturer is responsible for the refill. Remanufactured cartridges, sometimes called compatible cartridges, are considered the economical alternative. If it is done so in accordance with OEM specification, the remanufactured product will produce equal quality and page yield. To ensure these specifications regarding printer ink cartridges are met, the remanufacturing plant will inspect each used cartridge, replacing any parts that no longer function properly, and test the printing quality.

There are many advantages concerning both the economy and the environment associated with remanufactured cartridges that are not applicable to OEM products. The first is that they save money. Because the cartridge is recycled and only new ink is being added, they cost on average 50% less than buying new. Second, with the popularity of remanufactured ink cartridges on the rise, more jobs are being created to meet this demand. Third, by not having to continuously produce new ink cartridges, a substantial amount of energy is conserved. Finally, overall waste is minimized by taking advantage of this remanufacturing method. Less plastic, steel, rubber, and aluminum will be sent to landfills when the printer ink cartridge is recycled, as opposed to thrown away.

Dell is one of the many printer ink cartridge manufacturers that are committed to recycling for the sake of the environment. They have their own individual program that collects their unwanted products, and even has consumer incentives for all who take part. As the digital age progresses, it is important that it does not do so at the risk of the environment. So, to ensure that you get the best quality print, while at the same time be Eco-friendly, remanufactured cartridges are the way to go.
