Editors Note - This article is written by HP and does have a singular point of view. We at The Computing Center work closely with our clients to provide the best toners and inks available. Unlike others, we don't sell the cheapest "Toner of the Week". Substantial consumable savings can be had by selecting high-capacity and multi-pak toners over standard toners and by properly setting up printers to use the right amount of toner per page. Our goal is create long-term value for all our printer clients by providing and installing the right printers, setting them up properly, and using the most cost effective consumables.
If you use remanufactured ink or find yourself tempted by the cost savings, you may want to rethink your stance. Consider this: HP invests hundreds of millions of dollars in research and development in imaging and printing. It takes 3-5 years and up to 1,000 prototype formulas to perfect each new ink. The bottom line is that Original HP ink is not just colored water—it is scientifically formulated with very specific ingredients, proportions, and quality expectations that carelessly refilled and remanufactured ink just can’t compete with.
