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've been buying from 4inkjet for years. Experience with different printer inks has mostly been good. In this latest example, first of three of black ink I bought for Epson XP-800 leaked more than others have in the past. Fortunately, it all leaked onto desk instead of carpet. Obviously, I'll be more attentive and careful next time; I'm just saying this one cartridge leaked more than any other I've ever bought in past from 4inkjets. Will, of course, remain a customer. Thanks again for delivering GREAT value.

Unlike previous cartridge orders of this kind, I had difficulties with my recent order. Right after installing, printing black text came out streaky. A head test showed the black cartridge not performing correctly. After trying another cartridge and seeing the same result, I did numerous head cleaning cycles that used up a lot of ink from all the cartridges (5). Eventually it began to operate properly, but I never had problems like this until my latest order.

Comments about Remanufactured 273XL Cyan Ink Cartridge for Epson:

When I first installed this new cartridge the printer gave a warning about the cartridge not being a genuine product. I wasn't certain about pressing the "OK" button but I am glad now that I did. I saved money and the print quality is as good as the "genuine" product.

replacement 273 XL black Inc. for Epson didn't work

By Stephen

Comments about Remanufactured Epson T273XL020 HY Black Inkjet Cartridge:

I ran out of black ink . when I installed my last LD remanufactured cartridge the contact card came loose. I glued it back on; but when I then use it in the machine, the black ink was skipping. I went through cleaning the nozzles and aligning, but to no success. So I ordered a replacement for the damaged one. unfortunately when I installed the replacement LD cartridge the problem was the same. So before I called Epson I bought an Epson 273 XL. And to my surprise it worked. maybe the 2nd LD remanufactured cartridge was also defective or maybe Epson has done something to block remanufactured cartridges. What should I do?

Comments about Remanufactured 273XL 11 Piece Set of Ink for Epson:

I have been using LD printer ink for at least 6 or 7 years. I heard LD ink advertised on 640 KFI radio. I tried it and I am very happy with the color and especially the price. I can not tell the difference between LD ink and real Epson ink. I will keep using them and save money.

Thanks for a prompt response.
The cartridge which was being replaced seemed to be dry to print legiably.

Comments about Remanufactured Epson T273XL020 HY Black Inkjet Cartridge:

Epson is determined that only Epson ink will work in their printers and our printer seems to be rigged so that it is true. The copy we get using our new ink is not readable, very light and not consistant.

Comments about Remanufactured 5 Pack for Epson 273XL:

I have used their ink for multiple inkjet printers and I have yet to find a reason to buy overpriced ink from a store. Some cartridges may seem to not initially work, but read their FAQ on why this occurs. It is usually easily fixed.

I wish they would have a way of recycling the old cartridges and subsequently giving a slight discount for new ones.
