Remanufactured vs Original - Whats the difference?

Great question!

Unlike most 'compatible' products, that are made in bulk using generic parts and have limited, if any testing procedures; 'remanufactured' cartridges are recycled 'original (OEM)' cartridges that have been taken back to a manufacturer, stripped down by hand and had the internal components replaced for new. 

As such, the outside plastic casing of the product is exactly same as the 'Original', so there are no compatibility issues. The internal components and toner are then specific to the make of the printer, rather than being generic parts which may or may not be suitable for the machine and type of printing being done. As a result, failure and returns rates on 'remanufactured' products are significantly lower..............which leads me to our promise:

All of our'remanufactured' products are fully guaranteed for 2 years from the date of purchase!

So, In the event that the print quality of any of our products wavers from what you expect, or you don’t feel that the cartridge has lasted as long as it should then we'll replace it completely free of charge. In the extremely unlikely event there was any damage to any machine using our products, the cost of repair or replacement is fully covered by us and our manufacturers.  Total peace of mind.
