Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.

I bought a 3-color HP #57 remanufactured replacement ink cartridge to print digital photos - price about half retail . . The first 3 photos printed the first day were pretty OK . . 2 days later all photos printed had a strong red hue to them . . I tried to wipe the cartridge print strip clean with a tissue, but it didn't help . . I printed 4 photo pages with 4 pictures on each page, but it never got any better. . This particular cartridge will not give true color photos, and certainly not acceptible for framing or gifts . . Hence, why even buy it? The $19 price risk on another one isn't worth it at that price.

The cartridge decides to work when it wants to, leaving you with wasted paper and frustration. It also has faded colors even on the best setting. I installed a genuine HP cartridge from a local store and it works great consistently.

I put it in my printer and got an error, so I took it out and put it back in and it was accepted. I've only been using it a couple of days but it seems to be working properly and the price was was great compared to the HP brand. If it continues to work as well I will definitely be ordering more.

My past experience with this product was excellent, and the cost is much less than other retailers. It is getting difficult to find some of the cartridges for the older printers. I like that I can count on you to have these in stock and ready to ship out!

Comments about Remanufactured Tri-Color Ink Cartridge for HP 57:

The print is not as clear if using the setting fast draft or fast normal in black or color but it is clearly better in the normal setting. I would like to use the fast draft or fast normal to conserve on ink but to have it print clearly I have to use the normal setting. I feel it could be the cartridge or a combination of cartridge or printer. I use the black 95% of the time.

Comments about Remanufactured Tri-Color Ink Cartridge for HP 57:

I ordered this cartridge because the last one I got from you stopped working when it was still 3/4 full. I could not get it working again. It was approximately a year old so I guess it lasted through your warranty period. But I do not know why it stopped working.
