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.

Our shipment was fast and exactly what we ordered. There wasn't the confusion about which ink cartridge was compatible with our Brother printer (and we got the cone we needed) unlike a couple of other sites our there.

The only problem we encountered was installing the cart for the first time. We are at 7500' above sea level, and when we took the yellow tape strip off, it kinda bled all over the place. I think I lost about 10% of the total volume of ink.

Is it possible to manufacture some cartridges for high altitude use?

Received package on time as promised. In package received 3-black, 2-cyan, 2-yellow, 1-magenta. This bundle is supposed to have 3-black and 2 of everything else. So I am 1-magenta short. Another thing to note is the 2-cyan and 3-blacks are in different packaging, and not the LD brand as pictured, Magenta and Yellow were the LD brand as pictured. Replaced 1-yellow and 1-magenta in my Brother printer and printer accepted and acknowledged the cartridge and also printed with no problems (which were the LD brand as pictured). Replaced cyan and the printer would not recognize cartridge, kept getting error message stating 'reinstall ink cartridge'. Which I took and redid about 20+ times. So I tried the second new cyan cartridge with the same result. Put old/original cyan cartridge back in and it recognized no problem. Based on google research this is most likely due to chip error. I have yet to try my black as original one is almost full at the moment, but am reluctant to try as the other non-LD brand cartridges did not work properly. I am attempting to return/exchange the cyan cartridges with ones that will hopefully work. I will update my review at that point.

Comments about Compatible LC209 & LC205 4 Piece Set of Ink Cartridges for Brother:

My printer did not recognize the cyan or magenta cartridges. Received a second set, and still not recognizing magenta cartridge. At this point I have not been able to print for many days hoping that the replacement cartridges would work and I would be able to same money by not buying OEM Brother brand. I plan to send all back and request refund. I don't want to keep the ones that were recognized and risk having issues later. Very frustrating.

BTW....I did call your tech support and we did do trouble shooting.

Comments about Compatible 9 Pack for Brother LC209 & LC205:

I had a bit of a problem getting the printer to recognize the blue cartridge since these are not factory originals. I had to remove and reinstall it more than 7 times before it finally accepted the cartridge as being changed. But it all works fine, so I'd buy these again.

Product & Price Combination

Comments about Compatible 9 Pack for Brother LC209 & LC205:

Excellent product for general printing and occasional photo printing.

AT there prices I'll do more photo printing at home.

The large size cartridges allow so much more printing before needing changed

AND

The combination of magnum sized products at small container prices allows anyone to print as much as they desire.
