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 want to love these cartridges and still may as time goes on, BUT, last night when installing, even though I was following the directions exactly by removing the tape, holding the cartridge upright, not squeezing the cartridge... the ink leaked on all thee colors I ordered. Not just a drop, but ink pouring out of the hole that the tape covers so that I lost a good amount of ink and had a huge mess to clean up and still trying to get cyan and red ink off my fingers before my job interview today! We will see how they preform after being cleaned up and installed, but really? They will have to be pretty awesome performers for me to go through that again.

I would buy this again if the other cassettes do well

Comments about Compatible Brother LC205M Super HY Magenta Ink Cartridges:

Very good contact person we explained our problem to ----knowledgeable and helpful. I had ordered the wrong size at first and installed one replacement. It didn't fit in at first and we had to wiggle it around to seat it properly. The Brother it replaced was very easy to install and never had a problem.

LD ink refill

By Cher

from Michigan

Verified Buyer

Comments about Compatible Brother LC205Y Super HY Yellow Ink Cartridge:

I have always used LD ink and have been very happy with it but this last ink for my new printer does not fit correctly. So, this is about this particular ink refill. After trying two ink refills I realized that it just wasn't the correct size. I, however love the company and how fair they have been. They completely reimbursed me for the product and the shipping with a shipping label given to return the products. Thank you for your honesty in your company. So please understand, I recommend the company but not the LD ink for a brother printer 5620.

Watch out for leaky cartridges

By Raiderbob

Comments about Brother Compatible LC205C Super HY Cyan Ink Cartridge:

Within the 10 pack shipment were two Cyan cartridges. When I removed the yellow seal the ink started spewing out. Same thing happened to the other Cyan cartridge. Replacement Cyan cartridges did the same thing. Do you really want to buy from a company that sells defective products?
