Help Center - Replacement Cost
If you're in the market for a new printer, cartridge replacement cost is going to be a crucial factor to consider. Printer cartridges vary in price, but, in general, toner cartridges are more expensive. Inkjet cartridges are less expensive but tend to need replacing more often. Of the two, toner is a better long-term choice in terms of cost-effectiveness, mainly due to a single cartridges longevity. Ink replacements seem more affordable initially, but after considering how often you'll need to replace them, the cost adds up. While it is possible to find toner refills and ink refill kits, they can be a bit of a hassle.
Remember that cost shouldn't be the only factor when choosing a printer. While the two cartridges differ in cost, they also have different strengths. It's best to research these differences to have a full understanding of what type of printer, and therefore, what type of cartridge, will best fit your needs.
