Buying the correct ink cartridges for your printer can already be a confusing task without even looking at re manufactured cartridges or cheap imitations. The question posed here is does it make a difference what type of ink cartridges we put in our printer as long as they do the job?! – And that is print.
Re manufactured cartridge are those that have been cleaned and checked for damage before being recycled and refilled with a new batch of ink. The main benefits of these types of ink cartridges is that they work out cheaper, but also they are environmentally friendly as recycling cartridges prevents them being sent to landfill after one use. Re manufactured products entered the market a few years ago and are perfectly fine to use in most types of printers providing that the cartridges have been cleaned, checked and refilled properly. However problems can arise when companies do not take much care in cleaning and refilling cartridges which can result in unreliable cartridges that may break and at the same time damage your printer.
Cloned cartridges usually manufactured in Asia are copies of original manufacturers ink cartridges and have become attractive to ink consumers because of their cheap price tags. Even though the ink cartridges are made from scratch compared to re-manufactured cartridges they are still the cheapest type of cartridges on the market. However the low price tags has got to make you question their reliability – you will find with these types of cartridges that they do not print consistently well and the print quality is nowhere near as good as original ink cartridges. It is also believed that these cheap cartridges can damage your printer thus the cost of having to replace your printer will outweigh the benefits of purchasing these clone cartridges.
