More About Sharp Ink Cartridges

Most printer manufacturers, like Sharp, make the majority of their money by selling supplies such as printer ink. As a result, many printer users are shocked when they find that a replacement cartridge from the manufacturer is so costly. Thankfully, there is a way to avoid the expense of new cartridges while still maintaining print quality - buying remanufactured printer ink cartridges is a workable solution.

Remanufactured cartridges are a reasonably priced alternative to OEM cartridges. An OEM printer cartridge, one from the original equipment manufacturer, is designed to be used specifically with the manufacturer's printer. For example, a Sharp printer ink cartridge is intended for use with a Sharp printer. A remanufactured (or refurbished) cartridge, on the other hand, are made of used parts from empty printer cartridges and typically cost less than a new printer ink cartridge. Remanufacturers collect empty printer ink cartridges, test them for usability, clean them, and refill them. The cartridges are then quality control tested one final time before they are repackaged and sold to consumers.

So why are remanufactured cartridges becoming more and more popular? For one, their prices are lower. An OEM printer cartridge can be as much as 60% more costly than a refurbished one. Also, thanks to advancements in technology, the print quality of remanufactured cartridges has been shown to be comparable to that of new cartridges. Another worry that some people have, is that using a remanufactured cartridge will void their printer's warranty, but that is not the case; doing so would violate rules established by the Federal Trade Commission. Page yield is something else that comes into consideration when comparing OEM and refurbished ink cartridges. Some remanufacturers claim a higher page yield than OEM cartridges, and an article in PC World confirmed that their cartridges most often yield more printouts than those of the original manufacturer. Many remanufacturers fill their cartridges with more ink volume than the OEMs, enabling the cartridge to print more pages. Perhaps most importantly, the majority of remanufactured cartridges come with a warranty and money back guarantee, so there is protection for the consumer. Additionally, most remanufactured ink cartridges come with ISO certification, making them a standardized, high quality product. Finally, from an environmental point of view, remanufactured ink cartridges are an excellent choice. The fact they are repurposed, previously used cartridges, means that less energy is expended, non-renewable resources are conserved, and more plastic is diverted from landfills.

Printer ink can be costly, but remanufactured cartridges are an efficient alternative to OEM cartridges. Not only do they perform comparably to manufacturer cartridges, but they save money as well. They are also the environmentally better choice. Try them out and see for yourself.
