Of the many supplies that a printer needs, toners are the most expensive. Toner costs over the lifetime of a printer are often many times the amount of the initial cost of the machine. This is why it is often more important to choose a printer based on its ongoing toner costs than on its upfront cost.
While inkjet printers are often very inexpensive, their ink costs are much more expensive than laser printers. For this reason, users who do a high volume of printing generally prefer laser printers. When shopping for toners, it is important to find the correct cartridge for your specific model. Use an ink and toner finder, like the one at InkTechnologies.com to search by your printer model to ensure the cartridge you buy is the correct one for your printer.
When looking at printer toners, it is easy to get confused, as manufacturers often try to show the specifications and numbers that make their product look the best. When it comes to toner costs, however, the best way to compare models is by cost per page. Calculating the cost per page is quite simple. Take the cost of the toner cartridge or cartridges, and divide by the number of pages that cartridge is estimated to print before running out. This number is often referred to as the cartridge's "capacity" or its "yield". For example, if a black toner cartridge costs $80 and has a capacity of 5,000 pages, you simply divide $80 by 5,000, and get a cost per page of around 1.6 cents. However, if a different model of printer uses a cartridge that costs $80 and has a capacity of 10,000 pages, it will have a cost per page of .8 cents. This is why higher capacity is not always better, and why lower cost per cartridge is not always better. InkTechnologies.com offers page capacity information for every toner cartridge we sell, helping buyers make informed decisions about toner costs, so you can calculate whether it really is discount toner
The last thing to consider when comparing one model against another is whether the printer model has compatible or remanufactured toners available. Compatible toners are made to the same designs and specifications as those from the manufacturer, but at a much lower cost, whereas remanufactured toner
is a cartridge that has been inspected, cleaned and refilled with toner. This can mean a dramatic savings in toner costs, and save a lot of money over the lifetime of a printer. Back to the previous example, if the first cartridge costs $80 and has a capacity of 5,000 pages, a compatible cartridge might costs $40, reducing the cost per page to around .8 cents. Of course, not all compatible cartridges are the same. To ensure quality, it is important to buy compatible cartridges from a reputable seller.
