Protect yourself from The Incompatibles

Inside every non-genuine ink or toner cartridge lurks a gang of monsters who love playing havoc with printers. Recent independent testing by Buyers Lab has shown the damage The Incompatibles could do if you use non-genuine supplies.

The Blur

The Blur likes nothing better than ruining your printouts. His streaky, smudgy footprints make documents look seriously unprofessional. He showed up for 90% of the non-genuine toner brands tested, delivering low-quality colour prints that weren’t deemed good enough to share externally.

The Fader

He makes the most of poor toner adhesion to make details disappear. That leaves you open to tampering, as it’s easier to change printed documents by removing or changing numbers and text.

The Destructor

This little demon turns leaking cartridges into printer damage, causing premature wear of components. He was found in 100% of non-genuine toners tested by Buyers Lab, causing costly replacements and void warranties.

Mucky Pup

Mucky Pup causes a mess wherever he goes, leaking all over your hands, clothes and printouts and exposing them to potentially harmful chemicals. 80% of one non-genuine brand’s toners were leaking on arrival, rendering them unusable.

Mr Inconsistent

He loves to cause cartridge breakdowns and ruin page yields, resulting in you spending more on toners. In testing he caused one non-genuine brand to print 40,000 fewer pages than the Brother Genuine equivalent.
