Cartridge World Murfreesboro discusses the benefits of refilled cartridges, including price and green credentials.
Cartridge World Murfreesboro, Tennessee, has discussed the advantages of opting for refilled cartridges in response to a question from a local newspaper reader, reports DNJ.com.
In response to the question of whether “[refilled cartridges are] any better than buying new ones over and over”, Kyle McCarthy of Cartridge World Murfreesboro was keen to combat the negative reception aftermarket cartridges sometimes receive: “A lot of people are wary about a refurbished cartridge, but they shouldn’t be. They usually work just fine.”
Office Max’s Nicky Frost also spoke on the testing done on cartridges to ensure they print correctly: “We always test them. Some brands will recognise that a cartridge has been used, so we have to check them first.”
Refilled cartridges are also almost invariably cheaper than OEM cartridges. McCarthy encourages customers to perform price comparison, noting: “Typically the refills are about 30 percent cheaper than getting a new cartridge”.
Frost also provided figures to the comparison: “The black ink costs $10 (€8) to refill and the colour one is $15 (€12). That is a lot less expensive than purchasing a new one from some of the retailers. We also do free delivery for refilled cartridges to businesses for orders over $50 (€40).”
