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.

  • PGI-255XXL & CLI-251XL Set of 11 Cartridges for Canon- Great Deal!

    Q:

    I noticed one of your answers to a query stated that the black ink was pigment based but no mention of pigment or dye based ink for the color cartridge's, i.e., CLI-251XL HY Yellow Ink,CLI-251XL HY Magenta Ink, etc. Also, will these cartridges' in anyway affect the cleanliness of my Cannon Pixma MX922 printer head and ink head cleaner. I ask this because I used another aftermarket brand on my previous MX822 and the unit was a mess when I tore it apart.

    • A:

      The color cartridges in this set are filled with a Dye based ink, these cartridges are guaranteed to perform well with your printer and fully inspected for any problem areas such as possible leakage, thoroughly cleaned including print head nozzles.

    Am I reading the cost per page correctly, "cost per page for the PGI-255XL is $.87 and CLI-251XL is $.91"? Is that .87cents and .91cents?, or less that a penny per page? It surely wouldn't be 87 cents and 91 cents per page. Please advise. Thanks.

  • Compatible PGI-255XXL Extra HY Black Ink for Canon

    Q:

    Is this a Pigment based ink like the original Cannon cartridges or is this Dye based ink? I ask because you don't get as dark and crisp text with dye inks which is one of the reasons I bought the Cannon MX922 printer.

    I noticed your PGI-250XL state that they are pigment in the title but I don't see it mentioned anywhere for this extra extra capacity model.

    Thanks.

    Q:

    Grey ink

    I have recently purchased a Pixma MG7520. I am searching for a set of replacemet cartridges, and when I put in the model number this is the set of inks that comes up. But I am confused because it does not include the grey cartridge. Why not? Isn't it customary to include all the colors involved in a given model number?
    Asked on 10/5/2014 by Krispikins from Home

    1 answer

    • A:

      We don't include the Gray cartridge in the bundle set, simply because not all of the compatible Canon printers that use this same series of cartridges, use Gray ink. Only a few select Canon printers actually have slots inside the printer for Gray, therefore it's only offered as a single cartridge.

    Q:

    Package doesn't contain advertised cartridges.

    Received 11 pack and it contained 3 large black (LD PGI-255XXL) but instead of the LD CLI-251XL cartridges for the rest of them, I received C&G NP-C-0251XL cartridges. They work OK in my PIXMA MX922 except they don't light up. Instruction state that it won't light up when installed, so, will it light up or blink when it's empty?

    • A:

      Thank you for contacting us! I am sorry for any confusion our labeling caused. Those are the CLI-251XL cartridges, our supplier just has a different item number. These do have working ink chips on them, the printer will notify you when they need to be replaced.

    Canon 11-sent ink cartridges - two blck ink types?

    What is the difference between pigment black (PGI-255XXL) and black (CLI-251XL) for Canon MX922?
    Asked on 8/11/2014 by Keijiroh from Media, PA

    1 answer

    • A:

      The Canon MX922 requires two black cartridges in order to print. The PGI-255XXL cartridge is the larger black cartridge that you do most of your black copy printing from, the CLI-251XL cartridge is the small black cartridge that is an addition to the color cartridges providing better quality printouts.

I have been purchasing this and many other products from LD Products for at least 8 years now and the failure rate is far less than 1%. We use in excess of 30 cartridges a month so I have a fairly large sampling from which to make these remarks. In fact, I have recommended LD Products to many associates on many occasions based upon this fact. I don't purchase inkjet supplies from anyone other than LD Products so long as the price remains low and the quality remains high. I highly recommend using LD products.

I ordered one of these cartridges for my Canon Pixma MX922 based upon the good reviews. I'd already had it for several months before it was needed. I put it into the printer and the printer registered it as an empty cartridge. I put the old cartridge, a PGI-250XL which only was low on ink, back and will continue to use it for awhile.

I doubt that I'll be buying any more of the extra high yield cartridges for this printer.
