Depends on the printer. Printer ink supplied by the printer manufacturer is much more expensive. Sometimes the printer will reject cartridges NOT made by the printer manufacturer. I had this issue with my Canon Pixma. I was able to bypass the error and get the printer to work with the cheaper replacement cartridge. I did not notice a difference in quality.
It will work fine, you likely won't get as many print jobs from the aftermarket but with that big of a price gap it shouldn't be a problem.
If you have a ton of printing I mean several thousand pages a month look into leasing a printer where toner is included.
Advised one of my customers to go that router and they went from spending 1200$ a month on toner to under $400 a month on printer leasing and they get the toner included plus same day maintenance free of cost.
I should mention they were also able to get color laser printers.
Sometimes the ink level feature doesn't work with aftermarket toners and cartridges. Which can be a pain if you're printing a bunch of stuff and you don't catch that the ink is about to run out... BTDT. :shutup:
