Definition of New Compatible Toner

New compatible toner is a blanket term used to describe any new toner cartridge that is made by a third-party manufacturer and not by the manufacturer of your printing device.  New compatible cartridges are built from parts that are all expected to be compatible with your printer or MFD.

New compatible toner is generally more inexpensive than OEM toner although it’s quality can vary between manufacturers.  Occasionally, new compatible cartridge’s capacity will exceed that of an OEM cartridge but these vary significantly by brand and using new compatible toner can potentially void your device’s warranty.
