Should I use compatible / recycled toner cartridges in my color laser printer?
Compatible toner cartridges are sometimes known as recycled toner cartridges. As of this writing we at Laser Printer Resource do not recommend using compatible color laser toners. We do not believe the quality is equal to the OEM brands like HP, Lexmark, Canon, Etc. It is very tempting to use the compatible toner cartridges because of the huge difference in price compared to the OEM brands. At this time, we believe the risk to damaging your printer outweighs the cost savings. At Laser Printer Resource when we sell compatible black toner, we back it up with our technicians and they are 100% guaranteed. We constantly monitor the technology for the manufacture of compatible color toner cartridges and when we feel comfortable enough to recommend to our clients we will do so.
