Like i have said i use a dell colour laser with non genuine as a workhorse printer but for anything i need to send to customers i use maxify with proper ink. The quality between genuine and non is def noticeable. Try printing on photo paper with real vs copy and you will see the difference. I may look at the ecotank or similar refillable next time.
I hear you but as I only use recon/refilled ink cartridges now & I have never had issue with print quality or machine damage I can only comment on my experiences. I even refilled my own for a while but it was too time consuming & messy for my liking... lol Prices for originals are shocking for what they cost to produce but it’s a necessary item so we are captive users 🤪😫
not true at all. Every one who uses copy inks know and accept the print quality is lower and in a lot of cases don't work and in the extreme like my canon maxify if you use copy inks the machine shuts down and needs an engineer reset. I'm not a fan of genuine inks either btw, i think they are an absolute rip off, but they are not like for like. Always lower quality. I know i use both and i also know this machine as i have one. (not used, failed long ago)
Only difference between the cartridges is literally the packaging & the price. The ink is exactly the same 🤪 (y) Ink factory reuse genuine cartridge cases & repackage them with their own labels. You used to be able to get a discount on your next purchase if you sent them your old cartridges. Trainers can be a different kettle of fish but if you research them you will probably find they are all made in the same tiny sweat shop, in a 3rd world country, where they are made for pennies & they can pay staff a pittance while charging people a fortune for a ‘branded’ item. My Adidas trainers gave up the ghost long before my cheaper ‘unbranded’ ones & the ‘unbranded’ ones were worn more :o
Mine arrived already too, speedy delivery!
