Agreed. Otherwise he will meet angry Little-Miss. *pulls angry face*...ok, still needs work...
whenever I get prices for toners I get a "remanufactured" and an original price. So far I have got the refill everyime. These are all HPlaser toner cartridges and I have only had one problem in the course of two years where the "compatible" (IE fake, as opposed to refilled) toner has the wrong sort of attachment so the printer was unable to spin the drum and hence wouldn't print.
Pointed it out to our supplier who replaced them with working models.
We now use both colour and black remanufactured toners and I wouldn't hesitate to order more. They work out around 30-40% cheaper for us.
Had exactly the same as @Little-Miss with all of our compatible colour brother toners.
Now we buy all original manufacturer toners for all our colour printers, and use compatible for the mono printers only. We found compatible colour toners to be a false economy.
Just for the sake of closure.
I was right.
It now says on our record never to send remanufactured toners to our school.
All is forgiven.
Truth is some refills work others don't !
Unlike other printers the Kyocera can actually operate without a chip at all .( you just lose the toner level gauge )
The print quality issues are solely down to toner quality.
We run these colour printers reliably and very cheaply !!
