Laser printer Toner Refills

  AlanHo 10:27 17 Jul 2009

I have an OKI C5650 colour laser printer which has proved to be an excellent buy. It is fast and produces good quality prints.

To date I have always bought genuine replacement toner cartridges - but the credit crunch has hit home and I looked for economies.

A couple of months ago I decided to try a toner refill kit and it has proved to be the equal of the genuine thing - in the case of the OKI printer - requiring the minimum of DIY skills to implement.

The cost of one colour toner replacement averages :-
Genuine OKI colour cartridges £60.
Compatible cartridges £36
A bottle of toner plus replacement electronic chip £15.75

I imagine similar savings are possible with other printers.

To avoid being accused of posting spam I will not post a link to my supplier - but Google for toner refills and you have a choice.

During the warranty for our printer i had to buy Epson.
Now it's out of warrany we buy staples own brand & save about 25%.

OKI are well made & we have a few of them at work.
