The supplier you choose to get your ink cartridges from can make a big difference in price, quality, available models of ink cartridges and laser toner cartridges, and whether or not their warranty is any good. These things will make all the difference in which supplier you choose. Reputable dealers will have a long track record to judge them by, and there will be no confusion about their warranty language. Also, keep an eye on shipping costs as some resellers pad their profit by overcharging for shipping.
These days, it is easy to get a website - it is a bit harder to turn that site into a place that attracts shopping customers. For the site to be truly successful, it must offer three or four simple things. Ease of navigation and the ability to find the right product through multiple channels is extremely good, and a simple, easy to understand warranty - and with ink cartridges or laser toner cartridges, the longer the warranty the better - some people just do not print very much material, and a one month warranty is very short in terms of printer and laser toner cartridges.
A good sign that you're dealing with a professional company is how fast they ship and how good their customer service is - when you call them are they helpful at finding exactly the right product that you need? Do they answer all your questions about the product?
Also, make sure to read the fine print on how their products are manufactured. There are two types of cartridges that will meet your price requirements; remanufactured and compatible cartridges. A reputable supplier will take great care with each product type, and in the case of remanufactured will completely disassembled, inspect, clean and rebuild the old cartridge back to factory OEM standards, and refill it with high quality ink or toner which meets or exceeds the OEM standards; compatible cartridges like the Konica-Minolta 1710580-004 Laser Toner Cartridge will get just as much attention to detail, but they are made from scratch instead of being remade. They will, however, be made to the same exacting standards as the OEM equipment.
Follow the tips and hints above to make sure you are dealing with a reputable company, and it will be possible to save a large amount of money on your ink and toner needs.
