When you purchase a Ricoh toner cartridge online, you can have confidence in knowing that it is the genuine article and not a generic toner cartridge. Although generic and remanufactured toner cartridges may work perfectly well, there are a few things about them that you should know. Firstly, in terms of how much ink or toner is in the cartridge, the Ricoh printer / copier / fax will probably never read a remanufactured toner cartridge correctly. Although the cartridge is full, it is likely that the Ricoh printer / copier / fax will read that the cartridge is empty. If this is not a problem, then purchase a remanufactured or generic toner cartridge rather than a genuine Ricoh cartridge. Another concern is that remanufactured toner cartridges have a failure rate of 3 percent of all sold. Whilst this percentage may be small, it should assist you in your decision as to whether you want to invest in remanufactured toner cartridges rather than the genuine Ricoh item. Will the next toner cartridge you put in your Ricoh machine actually work you should ask yourself. Can you run the risk?
