Xerox genuine toner vs. bargain brand toner – Why does it matter? Toner is the lifeblood of your Xerox printer or multifunction printer. Without toner, you have a large scanner or paperweight. Obviously, we recommend that you use genuine Xerox toner in your machines. You might be tempted to use a bargain toner but I would like to caution you against trying the bargain brands. In the case of toner, you really do get what you pay for. In the long run bargain toner can end up costing you more by causing problems with the printer and causing you large replacement or repair bills. The quality of your prints may be effected and you could lose valuable business because of poor quality output.
Take a look at the following video that explains a test done by the Buyers Laboratory Incorporated (BLI) comparing Xerox genuine toner cartridges vs bargain toner cartridges.
The video gives you information on the test run and results found by BLI. Buyers Laboratory found that despite the higher price Xerox genuine toner cartridges turned out to be the economical option. The bargain toner cartridges were found to not yield the amount of prints advertised, fail more often and cause expensive damage to the printer itself. So the question becomes what is the true cost of those bargain toners? Potentially much more than just the list price. Consider this before you are dazzled by a low list price.
