The Myth: OEM Cartridges are Superior to Remanufactured

By   October 16, 2015

Two CartridgesA common myth is that remanufactured products are always inferior in quality to new OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) products. According to Canon’s co-inventor of both inkjet and laser printers, “Remanufacturing means refurbishing used products to make them equal in quality to new products”. In 1997, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stated that “Remanufactured products are as good as new”, in its publication, Waste Wise. In 2009 annual expenditures for both businesses and consumers on printers and printer consumables were estimated at $24.5 billion, with double figure increases each year. More than $10 billion is spent on ink in the US annually. If a penny saved is truly a penny earned then Ben Franklin would have loved Inkway USA and been a great customer and probably a successful reseller as well!

Another myth is that using a remanufactured or any cartridge other than that of the OEM will void the printer equipment (read “The Big Lie: Remanufactured Cartridges Void Warranties”).
