Remanufactured CartridgesRemanufactured cartridges have been recycled and reprocessed from an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) cartridge. Therefore, a
A remanufactured cartridge, as opposed to a new compatible, is made from a combination of new and recycled components.  It is created by using an original empty cartridge and taking it through a process of cleaning, examining, replacing worn out parts, filling it with toner and post testing the cartridge. In most cases, the body of the cartridge is the original body actually made by the same manufacturer that made your printer. Many of the parts inside the cartridge are reused original components that may have been cleaned and left for a second cycle.  

A remanufactured compatible printer cartridge is most frequently a better choice than a new compatible cartridge.

We offer cartridges are built from the original (recycled) OEM cores. There should be NO difference in print quality or page yield with a properly remanufactured cartridge. You get the same performance, with quality parts, at a better price. All of our products have a 100% guarantee.
