Top 3 Ways to Know if You’re Buying a Compatible Ink or Toner Cartridge

Printer ink and toner cartridges come in a variety of different formats. Many people believe that the only option available to them are branded or OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) ink and toner cartridges. And although the branded cartridges give you the printing quality you desire, you might find that they run out fairly quickly and you’re shelling out a lot of money month after month for them.
