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.

Quality for a good price.

This product was about half the cost of the Pitney Bowes cartridge. They work just as good.

I purchased 3 cartridges for a PB postage machine at significantly lower price versus the PB price. It was quickly obvious why the price difference. None of the three would print, even though the ink was obviously flowing. I called LD support who walked me through a possible print head cleaning procedure, but that was not the problem. Nothing would print after at least 20 attempts with each cartridge, just in case the machine needed to be primed. I had to pay the PB price and ship overnight so I could use the machine. The PB cartridge worked immediately. I used LD ink for another PB machine and had similar problems, but for the price, I just tossed the bad ones.

Comments about Compatible Replacement for 793-5 Fluorescent Red Ink for Pitney Bowes:

Unfortunately, these do not work in my pitney-bowes DM100i model P700 postage unit.

Now I am forced to purchase the PB branded $100.00 cartridge.

PB must have a software lock to only work with their cartridges.

As soon as my contract is up with PB I am getting rid of my postage meter unit.

The price is fantastic!! But once we put the cartridge in the machine it only works part of the time and even then it only gives up a partial print of the meter.

The Pitney Bowes postage meter requiring PB Ink 793-5 will only work properly with PB 793-5 OEM Ink. I will be attempting to return all ink cartridges recently purchased.

Leaky Cartridge

By Pete

from Utah

Verified Buyer

Comments about Compatible Replacement for 793-5 Fluorescent Red Ink for Pitney Bowes:

I have used these cartridges in my Pitney Bowes meter without major problems. I have only opened one of the cartridges so far but the ink squirted out like it was under pressure. Besides the mess, I had to purge the cartridge a number of times to make it work. It now works but the impression is very light and almost pink in color.
