OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. In the case of ink cartridges and laser toner cartridges, OEM refers to the product made by the manufacturer of the printer. Examples would be companies such as HP, Epson, Canon and Lexmark.
Generic or Compatible inkjet cartridges or laser toner cartridges are manufactured by a company other than the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of that specific printer. There should be no difference in the quality or performance. In fact, if an OEM manufacturer produces cartridges that are compatible with printers other than its own, it is also considered a "Generic" or "Compatible." Ecotoner sell generic and compatible cartridges using inks and toners that are manufactured in the USA. Our cartridges are assembled in ISO 9001 production facilities.
Replacement ink cartridges and toner cartridges are manufactured by a company other than the original manufacturer of the printer. The replacement cartridges should be of the same quality and performance as the OEM version.
The warranty on your printer cannot be voided by the manufacturer because you use non-OEM inkjet cartridges or toner cartridges. A consumer has the right to purchase less-expensive cartridges without intimidation from printer manufacturers. If your printer manufacturer threatens to void the printer warranty for this reason, it is subject to legal action by you, the consumer, by the replacement cartridge manufacturer.
Ecotoner use superior quality inks made in the USA. Our inks are all printer specific and are thoroughly tested at the factory with brand name printers to insure vibrant color output.
Brand name companies generate very little profit from the sale of their printers. In order to make up for the small profits on printer sales, these companies establish high pricing for inkjet cartridges and laser toner cartridges. Most brand name printer companies generate most of their profits from the sale of printer consumables such as ink cartridges and toner cartridges.
Exactly what it sounds like - drilling a hole in a toner cartridge and refilling it with toner. A similar process is used to refill ink cartridges with “do it yourself” ink refill kits. Ecotoner does not sell "drill and fill" cartridges. Our toner cartridges are produced by professional engineers and technicians who test cores and components for structural integrity, clean empties to OEM standard, replace major components (such as drums and blades), refill with toner and test again before packaging to ensure a product which meets quality standards.
