Original vs Third-Party
Quality is the key driver for millennials preferring to buy products from renowned brands. The same ethos can be applied to print consumables. In the same way that a pair of counterfeit Levi’s jeans won’t provide the same quality, durability or longevity as the genuine article, a third-party print consumable such as an ink or toner cartridge will not provide the same quality, performance of output as the genuine item that has been developed alongside the intended device and manufactured by the same supplier.
OKI’s Original Consumables are designed and crafted alongside OKI devices to deliver the best possible performance. The harmonious compatibility between OKI devices and consumables cannot be replicated by third-party consumables introduced to printing operations, no matter what promises are made by the third-party supplier.
This has been proven in tests by industry-leading independent research analyst and testing firm KeyPoint Intelligence Buyers Lab who compared the performance, image quality, reliability and yield of genuine OKI Original Consumables versus three third-party compatible cartridges. The testing concluded that devices using OKI Original toner cartridges performed flawlessly while devices using toner cartridges from a third-party supplier did not perform so well in comparison.
