The differences between Remanufactured Compatible and New Compatible Ink and Toner Cartridges

Posted by

At Sam’s Toner our goal is to provide the best quality toner and ink cartridges at the lowest prices. We sell both laser printer toner cartridges and inkjet printer cartridges. To offer these cartridges at lower prices we offer them in Remanufactured Compatible and New Compatible form that we select based on quality and cost to you.

Remanufactured Cartridges

We at Sam’s Toner have trained technicians, with over 25 years of experience, who specialize in producing professionally remanufactured cartridges.

Remanufactured cartridges begin with recycled OEM cartridges, making remanufactured cartridges very environmentally friendly. Some companies only refill the recycled cartridges without any testing. This is cheaper, but often results in poor print quality. At Sam’s Toner we examine the recycled cartridges for worn out parts, which are then fixed or replaced. Then we make sure that the remanufactured cartridges produce the same print quality as OEM cartridges from beginning to end.

Some of the changes we make when remanufacturing cartridges include:

  • Installing a new PCR (primary charge roller) to prevent double images
  • Installing a new magroller retaining blade to prevent toner from dripping
  • Installing a new OPC (organic photoconductor) drum with improved durable coating to ensure no lines or streaks

In addition we test our toner cartridges to ensure they print perfectly.

One of our best sellers, the Dell NX994-14 toner is a remanufactured toner cartridge.

New Compatible Cartridges

These cartridges are created by 3 rd party manufacturers. The 3rd party organization designs and manufactures the toner to be used for your printer. The quality of compatible ink and toner is dependent on the 3 rd party manufacturer, many factors such as the quality of the materials they use and their own quality assurance practices play a role. The components are new (hence the term "New Compatible"), but the quality of these cartridges varies based on what store you shop from.

At Sam’s Toner we try to find the best 3 rd party manufacturers. We work closely with our suppliers to make sure the quality of their new compatible ink and toner is the same or better than OEM quality. We inspect and test our new compatible cartridges as well.

Our current best seller, the Brother TN-450-14 toner is a new compatible toner cartridge.
