If the laser printer is used for business, toner cartridge reliability problems take up a substantial amount of employee and technical support work hours that could affect workplace productivity and raise operating costs as well.
Cartridge reliability problems can be thought of as a deal breaker as these not only imply wasted personnel hours but also results to additional printing expense in line with the reprinting of poorly printed copies and several wasted media. A faulty cartridge can spike up operating costs to overrun its potential benefits. Therefore, it becomes mandatory for businesses to raise the office cartridge reliability quotient in order to reduce printing expenditures and maximize profitability.
What are the factors that embody cartridge reliability quotient? Certainly, these would not just involve cost factors!
- Cartridge design technology ensures that it can deliver the desired print quality and reliability performance. All devices in the cartridge (including toner powder) are programmed for optimal and dependable performance. This way, the cartridge works seamlessly with printer hardware and paper.
- The cartridge manufacturing process observes stringent laboratory standards to assure that vital imaging components – the cartridge reliability, PCR, Doctor and wiper blades, and seals will function properly over long periods of printing.
- Cartridge testing is conducted based on ISO guidelines that meet or exceed design specifications. HP for instance performs comprehensive sample tests on a cartridge to the tune of 100,000 pages per week.
An example of a reliable cartridge is the HP Color LaserJet CC532A, the yellow toner cartridge that loads the HP LaserJet CP2025 CM2320. While the cartridge unit exhibits total dependability, its price tag is one big downside. Imagine paying as much as $140 for an OEM toner cartridge rated 2,800 pages at 5% coverage? Said pricing is expensive not only for homebased businesses but also for small enterprises with larger printing budget. Even though the cartridge comes with a high yield rating, getting a replacement cartridge each time the OEM dries up its toner supply can be somewhat of a financial burden.
Many users nowadays turn to compatible toner cartridges from the aftermarket to replace the exhausted OEM toner cartridge. The HP Color LaserJet CC532A CP2025 Yellow Compatible Cartridge retails for less than $62. Despite its low pricing, prints delivered are crisp, clear and professional looking just like what the OEM toner can generate. Note that supplied compatible toner powder and cartridge housing was manufactured based on the specifications of the OEM toner and build quality of the OEM cartridge respectively. Moreover, yield rating of 2,800 standard pages (or even more) based on 5% page coverage is still achievable
Quality toner powder plus dependable cartridge construction delivers unparalleled printouts that maintain substantially a high toner cartridge degree of reliability.”
