The busier the home user or small office gets the more unaffordable the inkjet cartridge may seem to become. Although, with the trend changing towards using the compatible non-genuine version of the inkjet cartridge where the prices are a lot less than the original brand, for the busy office, the inkjet printers are simply not quick enough.
However, a good quality toner cartridge such as the HP CF280A will print up to 2700 pages @ 5% coverage (this means 5% coverage of the page and that normally means just text and not images). This black and white toner cartridge works with approximately nine HP Laserjet printers and will print 2700 pages at a rough cost of 3 cents per page when using an original brand HP toner. If you switch to a compatible version of the CF280A toner the cost will drop to around 1 cent a page!
This high-performance laser toner is also available as a high capacity cartridge CF280X. It has a page print volume of 6900 pages. The cost per page can vary but with the original brand it will cost around 1.8 cents. If you choose to buy the compatible version of the toner cartridge it should average out at around 0.5 cents per page! These savings are too great to ignore and with no problems being encountered, when it comes to compatibility with the HP printers there is really no reason to make the switch to compatibles. The quality of the print using compatible CF280A or CF280X is excellent as the toner is manufactured to the same ISO standards as the original brand.
With more and more businesses making the switch to non-genuine laser toners, the savings to be made on an ink and toner budget for a year is certainly significant. If a busy office in a solicitors’ office, school or college decides to switch to using compatible ones they will certainly see the difference at year-end with regard to how much they would have spent in previous years to what they are spending now. Laser toner printing is not just for the office, a small business operating from home or a house with several children attending school may find it useful to have a laser printer as the speed by far passes that of an inkjet one.
The added advantage of the laser toner is that it will not clog the print heads of the printer that can sometimes happen with an inkjet. The whole process of laser toner printing is completely different and seen as some as quicker and more convenient way of producing your prints.
