Lexmark printers, and nearly every other brand, are priced unbelievably low because the manufacturer knows most people will continue to buy their brand of ink cartridges rather than seek cheaper compatible ones.
While there are websites offering cheap prices on replacements for Lexmark ink cartridges, the consumer must use great caution because most of these are of an inferior quality. However, there are ways to determine if the ink cartridge you are considering for your Lexmark printer is of sufficient quality.
First of all, the potential buyer should thoroughly read through the website looking for how the ink cartridge is manufactured, or re-manufactured. If the company offers cartridges made in ISO-9001 certified factories, one can be sure of the quality. This certification indicates the cartridges carry the same standards of quality as found in the Lexmark brand. If there is nothing about where or how the cartridges are made, move on to another site.
The websites offering cartridges of this quality will stand 100 percent behind their Lexmark compatible ink cartridges, so check on the warranty the site offers. The best ones will offer a full one-year warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. The better ones will also offer to repair or replace any Lexmark printer damaged by a defective ink cartridge.
Another way to determine if the ink cartridge offered for your Lexmark printer is of the highest quality and at the best price is to look at the shipping charges. Many companies offering inferior products will charge high shipping costs because they know you won’t be back.
However, the companies offering the highest quality, best priced compatible Lexmark ink cartridges will charge a flat rate for any order regardless of how many cartridges are ordered. These companies know that you will be satisfied with their products and come back to them when it is time to reorder. Always buy from these companies and bookmark the site.
