the cost saving you will make both in pounds and as a percentage
if you switch to TonerTopUp refills.
Because of the large amount of data (still
incomplete) we present the figures on separate sheets according
to the manufacturer.

Prices are taken off OEM websites at 27th
April 2003 and from the current Viking catalogue valid on the
same date (or for remanufactured cartridges off the R & R
Supplies website). Clearly pricing is a very fluid matter and
you may be buying at some different rate. These prices and the
calculated savings should be taken as indicative only, providing
a snapshot in April 2003 that is hopefully useful but not definitive.
This major study was undertaken to provide visible evidence of
savings. Although the detailed data is now out of date, the current
overall position will be similar.
Where only a low capacity cartridge is offered
and where appropriate, the price has been scaled up by the rated
number of sheets to compare with a high volume cartridge.
Where our product covers several different
cartridges, the lowest priced one has generally been used in the
comparison. For example, we provide the same high quality toner
for the HP5000, HP4100 and the earlier HP4000. We have used the
HP4000 and 4100 cartridge OEM price of £109.31 instead of
the price for the HP5000 of £139.64 in our comparison. The
savings are therefore even higher for the HP5000.
There is finally only ONE cost saving
that matters to YOU..... and that is how much YOU save! For all
our efforts to tie down these comparable prices, finally you should
look at how much buying TonerTopUp toner will save YOU. We hope
that you, like us, will save a substantial sum!
80 to 90% of all cartridges bought in the
UK are made by the OEM. This is a much higher percentage than
in the USA or Germany for instance where there is more pressure
for both cost and environmental reasons to use remanufactured
or refilled cartridges.
In many cases the same engine is used by many
different manufacturers with different prices for their brand
of consumables. The OEM prices below have been taken from Hewlett
Packard, Lexmark, Brother, Epson, OKI, Panasonic, NEC, Star, Apple
Xerox, Tektronix and Sharp. There is considerable overlap where
a single price has been taken. These cover the major manufacturers
and can be considered broadly representative.
