Do you use the manufacturer's original toners or cheaper ones?

When it was my decision, I always went with manufacturer ones.

manufacturer's.

1) They just work better. We have tested several aftermarket cart's and
no matter the claims, there were always problems.

2) We carry printer maintenance. Its cheap and worth it (in our eyes) to
be able to make a service call and have a dude show up with parts. The
maintenance company prefers manufacture cartridges. They also claim
there is less trouble with OE then aftermarket/refills.

Manufacturer's - we some time ago tried others, but they never
delivered what they claimed. Further on ower higher volume printers we
have maintenance contracts, which require OEM toners - but overall they
are the cheapest if you calcuate costs per page.

Only at home with some older HP inkjets I use alternate products, but
only new cartridges from other brands, never refilled.

Guess I'm the lone dissenter.

I use a mix of remanufactured and OEM.
As far as remanufactured goes, there are proportionately
more problems BUT all of them are guranteed to work so if
it doesn't, back it goes. We keep three for each printer in
stock. It has happened once that all three on the shelf were bad!
That remanufacturer got fired.

Anywho, as the price we get is almost half of OEM, we deal with
the issues they cause. Maybe you don't have the time for it, but
maybe you do. Definitely all remanufacturers are NOT created equal.

When the CPA firm I worked for purchased the original HP LaserJet in the
1980s, they bought new HP cartridges and had them refilled twice. At the
time, that was the recommendation due to limitations on the drum.

I noticed that by the time you were using the twice-refilled cartridge, the
characters and lines drawn by the printer were "fatter" than with a new
cartridge.

Today, the better remanufacturers replace the drum when they become worn,
and refilled cartridges can be very good.

Having said that, I buy new OEM cartridges on eBay. I search for them well
ahead of when I will actually need them, and look for really good prices.
Although the prices are usually pretty good, even bargain purchases of OEM
cartridges cost more than remanufactured.

Have been down the refill and OEM route previously, but would always
choose the manufacturers cartridges these days due the high failure rate
we saw via several alternative suppliers.

Us too. We have been testing remanufactured cartridges from different
sources for a few years now and found all but one were no good. The
source we are working with now has never had a failure.

cheapies for me defenitely
just a cheapo 100 buck laser printer, the manufacturer carts cost
almost as much as a whole new printer compared to 30 bucks on evilbay
for a cheapo one
for what I use it at home for I can't tell the difference

For home use it is definitely a no-brainer. Problems show up more readily
with higher volume page counts.

I use the manufacturer brand - in both of my printers: Minolta 2530DL
Color Laser and Cannon Pixma color inkjet printer
The Minolta have a 4 cartridge system (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and 1
Black drum) system, the Cannon has only 2 cartridge system (1 black and
1 tri-color) – I’ve seen with other “cheapies” that I have to clean the
interior of the printer more often because of leakage from the
remanufactured cartridges and drums for the Minolta.
