Toner cartridges for laser printer

  Hoseman 14:28 08 Jan 2004

I know these are quite expensive so I was wondering if anyone knows of any reliable and cheap suppliers offering original and the non original alternatives.

Thanks in advance

Last Autumn I did an extensive search for an original cartridge for my Samsung ML-4500. I found that this was the cheapest source:

You would need to check if they still offer the best prices.

What is the printer you are using????? How can we offer alternatives if we don't know the printer you already have?

Its a HP printer, a Laseerjet 6P. Cheers.

ennuye: thats the price for a compatible cartridge. From Tonik a compatible is £31.95; free delivery from both suppliers. An original HP costs an incredible £59.95.

The compatible cartridges actually print less copies if I remember correctly but not half the amount or less so it makes it worth your while in the end. Thanks for the tips so far and if anyone can better those prices my wallet would be very pleased. :)

Epson cartridges can be refilled from bottles. A bottle of toner is about £10. Originals are a similar price, about £60. I usually manage to one refill out of a cartridge, sometimes more. Manx Print Care provide the bottles of toner. Have a look at the cartridge and see if there is a plastic plug to take out.

When we ran tests at work on recycled cartridges for laser and inkjet, many of the compatibles lasted longer than the originals. It depends on who does the recycling. Some of the suppliers replace the drum every fill, unfortunately others don't, so as in all things buyer beware.

This is what I use for my refills: click here £35.90 inc for three bottles of 150g, that is more than three full cartridges, but you also have to buy some new orignal cartridges at £88 a time, you cannot keep refilling them.
