It's Canon first quality, and it costs a bit more for a reason.
I've compared print quality side by side using the same printed document on the same printer. Compared original Canon, versus two "compatible" cartridges from other companies (one a major office supply company) and a "remanufactured" canon cartridge which a company refurbishes the worn parts and rebuilds and refills a canon cartridge shell.
I didn't think there would be a difference. A cartridge is a cartridge and toner is toner. But they absolutely do differ. The way the toner sticks to the paper is better from an OEM Canon brand new cartridge. A cheaper roller (which fuses the toner powder to the paper) does not provide the same quality. There are lesser ways to manufacture these. And replacements or compatibles are cheaper. Canon charges more for their name, yes, but they also put in better quality components, to protect that name.Read full review
