Maybe it's just me, but I don't wake up in the morning exclaiming, "Woohoo! I get to buy toner today!" It's not exactly on the top of my list of fun things to do. I don't buy toner because it's fun. I need it to get stuff done, but some things can make the experience more annoying then it needs to be. And these, in my opinion, win the award for being most annoying.

1. It's too darn expensive!

I shouldn't have to sell my firstborn child to buy another 36,000 pages worth of toner. I have a Lexmark T654 laser printer. A replacement cartridge costs $529.99 from Lexmark. Really? At that point, I might as well keep buying a new printer every time the toner runs out.

2. Finding the right part.

I ran the numbers myself. There are approximately 9 Bajilion printer models and part numbers. And none of the naming conventions make any sense (I'm looking at you, Dell). At least Lexmark has part of the printer model number in the supply part number. SOMETIMES.

3. Takes too long to get it.

Running out if toner always happens at the worst possible time, and you can't just run down to the local office supply store to pick it up. You know why? Because they don't have it in stock. You have to order it, and sometimes it takes a week to ship, or cost double to ship it overnight.

Shameless Plug

Time for the shameless plug. Buying toner doesn't have to be annoying. Print.Save.Repeat. toner cartridges cost up to 75% less than Lexmark or Dell and are guaranteed to perform the same or better than the originals. We always try to include the part number and compatible printer model numbers in the title to make it easy to find what you're looking for. Plus, we offer cheep expedited shipping options so you can get toner fast when you need it.

Don't let buying toner be annoying.
