You might be surprised to know that using NON genuine toners in your printer can void its warranty.
Kyocera recently ran a comparative test against its own toners with 9 other Non-Genuine toner cartridges.
Here’s what they found:
- 3 of the third-party toners caused damage to the fusers of three test devices.
- 11 of the 15 toner cartridges tested from one supplier expired much earlier than expected.
- 84% of the printed documents produced by compatible toner devices had minor defects limiting them to internal use only.
- 8% of the printed documents produced by compatible toner devices had severe defects rendering them unusable.
- 100% of the genuine Kyocera cartridges worked reliably, with no out-of-box failures, no early-end-of-life failures or other defects.
- 100% of genuine Kyocera toner cartridges reached their full rated page yield. On average the page yield of the compatible colour toner cartridges (Cyan, Magenta and Yellow) was 17.6% lower than the genuine Kyocera colour toners.
Kyocera have spent decades developing technologies that consistently deliver lower running costs than their competitors.
Toner is not a “one size fits all” consumable, and only genuine toner can deliver the quality, economy and reliability you expect when you purchase a Kyocera device.
Don’t waste your time searching online for a third party comparative toner for your Kyocera printer.
You may save a little on the toner cartridge, but it will cost you more in the long run, with voiding the warranty, changing the toner more frequently and producing poor print quality.
