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 really wanted this ink to work for me since it would save a lot of money. But for certain graphics it printed an uneven coloration. For everyday use this would be perfect. I sell invitations, so I need a higher quality ink for my printing. I guess I will stick to using the expensive genuine ink.

Excellent toner cartridges

By Berto

Verified Buyer

Comments about Bulk Set of Compatible Replacement Toners for HP 305A:

I've tried several generic toner cartridges over the last 4 years or so, but LD cartridges perform as well as the original HP cartridges that cost 3 times as much. Color and print quality is outstanding. I've probably purchased about 100 cartridges from them and only one malfunctioned, and they replaced it within a couple days.

305 Magenta replacement cartridge

By Mark

from Kewaskum, WI

Verified Buyer

Comments about Compatible Magenta Toner for HP 305A:

After about 400 copies the paper began showing magenta margins. When you ran more than one page at a time the latter pages became shaded with magenta overall. Cartridge had to be replaced. This has happened before with magenta. Last year I had a cartridge that left a magenta tick mark on both sides of the paper consistently until the cartridge was replaced.

"I would buy this product again and again"

By Gordon

Verified Buyer

Comments about Compatible Black Toner for HP 305A:

I use this product for my personal communications as well as my church.

Always know I can get my order in a couple days at most.

I have had a few cartridges that were not up to snuff. Recently I had to get a replacement and it was worse than the original one. Then I asked for a second replacement and I was ignored. It was as though you thought I didn't know what I was doing. Check your records - I have been using your product for some time now and will only ask for a replacement if indeed the cartridge is bad.
