For those who aren’t familiar with printer options, their first question when considering a printer might be: What is the difference between printing with ink cartridges and using a toner?
The answer is fairly simple. Printing with ink is similar to writing with pen and paper; the printer applies ink to the paper and with further application of pressure, the ink transfers and sticks to the paper.
With the use of a toner to print, there is no pressure being applied. Rather, the printer applies a fine powder – the toner – to the paper and a laser fixes – or ‘burns’ it.
Once you have weighed up the pros and cons of both inkjet and laser printers, considered which one would best suit your needs and finally purchased the right printer, you will then need to buy the accessories to get yourself set up and ready to print.
If you decide to go for a HP laser printer, then HP toners will complement your laser printer perfectly, giving all the benefits that you would expect from the HP laser printing system. HP toner cartridges have been designed to work alongside the HP laser printing system with all other HP printing accessories in order to give the best possible results.
HP printer toners give the ultimate in accuracy when printing. If you are printing rich-colour documents such as graphs or photos, then you will find that your HP printer toners will give you unparalleled image clarity.
If you have previously used inkjet printers you may be surprised by how much faster you find your laser printer, and at how much cheaper your printing works out at cost-per-page. Your HP toner cartridges will contribute to this cost effectiveness. How? HP printer toners are larger in size than regular inkjet printer cartridges; hence your HP toners will last you longer and offer you better value for money.
No matter how durable your HP toners, there will come a time when you run out and need to buy new HP toner cartridges. Computers and printers are part of our lives at home and at work, and running out of HP printer toners at either place can be stressful and frustrating.
This is why you need to locate a good and reliable supplier of HP toners as soon as you can – as soon as you install your printer probably! Why wait until your HP toner cartridges have run out in the middle of an important printing job at work, or while you are at home printing out holiday photographs to send to family?
It’s not hard to separate a good supplier of HP printer toners from a poor one. These are a few things to look out for when you research suppliers of HP toners: secure ordering is a must, as is fast, free delivery. Experience of HP toner cartridges is essential, as, through no fault of your own, you may require support fitting your new HP printer toners or perhaps some aftercare. For example, you may have failed to check which HP toners your printer takes, and accidentally ordered the incorrect HP toner cartridges for your model. We’ve all done it! The important thing is that your supplier of HP printer toners accepts the returns and replaces the incorrectly ordered HP toners for you as quickly as possible.
In an attempt to save costs, people are trying alternatives to genuine HP toner cartridges. The market is rapidly offering different alternatives to real HP toners – some of them producing less then desirable results.
The biggest problem with these poor quality alternatives revolves around their reliability. Problems with buying toners that are not HP toners or a good quality substitute include having to reprint pages that are unacceptable, having to purchase paper for reprints, having to purchase replacement cartridges due to cartridge failure and wasting staff time replacing cartridges and dealing with toner leaks and spills. Tests have proven that these are real outcomes that result from using toners other than genuine HP toners. The same tests prove that these frustrations do not occur when genuine HP toner cartridges are used.
It’s not only time that is wasted due to poorly made remanufactured toners. Money is also wasted on purchasing replacement paper and cartridges – avoidable had genuine HP printer toners been used in the first instance.
It’s worth thinking about what to do with your old HP toners once they have run out – did you know you shouldn’t throw away your old HP toner cartridges because you can recycle them? Perhaps you weren’t aware that it IS possible to recycle old HP printer toners.
Check packaging for pre-paid and pre-addressed materials that you can put your old HP toner cartridges into and return to HP where they will be re-used as car parts, piggy banks and even parts of new HP products. Recycling old HP printer toners is easy, free, good for the environment and good for you too!
