Remanufactured vs Refilled Toner

With so many alternative printer cartridges on the market it can be confusing to see the differences between them all. BIGFISH cartridges are remanufacturer, not refilled, but what’s the difference?

What’s wrong with refilled cartridges?

The first thing about refilled printer cartridges is that they tend to be very cheap to buy. While price is an important factor for all of us, there is a reason why they’re so cheap. Unlike BIGFISH remanufactured printer cartridges, refills literally take an end of life cartridge and top them up with toner power. So what’s wrong with that?

A toner cartridge is so much more than just toner! There are many components that influence the print quality, such as: magnetic rollers, wiper blades, photoconductor units or drums, and many other parts and gears that have their own lifespan. If these parts aren’t renewed along with the toner the failure rates increase and print quality suffers. It’s no wonder that many people have lost faith with so called recycled toner cartridges.

Believe it or not, each cartridge from BIGFISH is individually refurbished by one pair of skilled hands and tested by the same person.
