A compatible toner cartridge is a replacement for the original cartridge in your laser printer. It is made by a third-party manufacturer, not the printer’s original manufacturer.

Compatible toner cartridges are generally less expensive than original cartridges. However, don’t base your decision to buy compatible cartridges entirely on price. You could end up with a lower-quality cartridge that could damage your printer.

We recommend purchasing compatible toner cartridges from companies that offer printer repair services. Printer repair companies typically stand behind the products they sell and can repair the printer if the toner causes a problem.

If you’re looking for ways to reduce costs, compatible toner cartridges may be right for you.
