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 have a canon multipass c5500. The cartridge did not fit right in my printer. After calling support, I was able to squeeze the cartridge into the cartridge holder, but it would not print anything. There was plenty of ink, however, because on pulling (very hard) to get the cartridge back out, it went flying and so did the black ink. Upon support recommendations, performed head cleaning and then tried a 2nd cartridge. Still did not print anything. I even broke the tab at the top trying to get this one back out of the cartridge holder. I do not recommend these cartridges as they are not made to the same dimensions as the original cannon cartridges.

Comments about Compatible BCI21Bk Black Ink for Canon:

When I typed in the Canon 2120 the ink I ordered is what popped up so I assumed it was compatible. It was not even close. I have never had any complaints until this order.

Comments about Compatible BCI21Bk Black Ink for Canon:

I ordered the wrong part. Does not fit my printer. Found correct part and ordered. Not sure how I could have ordered this wrong and got the correct part for the same printer in the same order when ordering a second cartridge in a different color. But my fault so I will learn from the mistake.
Product was shipped very promptly and will continue to do bix in the future.

BJC-2100 Ink Cartridges

By Jerry

Verified Buyer

Comments about BCI21 Set of 12 ink cartidges for Canon:

Delivery was prompt. All arrived intact. The first black cartridge I installed was a very tight fit and I had difficulty getting it positioned correctly. My printer had not been used in several years so it took several pages before it began to print correctly, but it works splendidly now. I will use the printer with my notebook PC while traveling in my motorhome. I'm very pleased with the service, the quality and the end result. Thanks.
