Do You Understand the “A” and “X” of Cartridges?
The main difference is the volume of output of the cartridge. The A cartridge handles half as much pages as the X cartridge does. For instance, if the A cartridge prints 5,000 pages, a compatible X cartridge prints 10,000 pages.
The Cost Point of Printing
The cost of printing between the two differs by as much as $0.005, with the A cartridge being more costly. Let’s illustrate this point and see its impact on your overall printing costs.
Let’s imagine you handle 10,000 pages a month, the savings when you use the X cartridge are as follows:
10,000 x $0.005 = $50
This is for one copier for one month. Let’s assume that you have five copiers, working for one year:
(5x12x50) = $3,000
This is what you save on copier cartridge alone in a single year! Now you know where your copier savings lie.
