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.

      No, the HP 83X is not compatible your HP LaserJet Pro MFP M127fw. Your printer will only accept the HP 83A (standard yield) toner cartridge. The high yield (HP 83X) will not fit nor work.

    • A:

      I've used this toner cartridge on my HP laserjet pro M127fn, with no problems.

      LD rep Ray confirmed today that this cartridge is compatible with the M127fn, she said it is universal.

      The LD item number is UNIVCF283XCTA, and the LD description is "Comp HP 283A/0883A". The box you receive from LD is different than the one shown in the ad. The box you get indicates compatibility with M127fn.

    • A:

      The HP 83X high yield toner is not compatible with the HP LaserJet Pro M127fn. This printer can only accept the HP 83A standard yield cartridge.

I think the only struggle you will have is printing on different textures of papers or glossy paper. But if you're going to use it on every day standard printing paper, then this is a great deal.

Purchased this product for my HP laser printer thinking that it would work just as the original HP cartridge did. Wrong... I wish I had known...
Yes the cartridge fit into the printer and was able to print, but when I started the printer, there was a message stating "non HP printer cartridge"
When I went to print, it would take up to 2-3 minutes for the printer to actually print, which was not the case with the genuine HP product. Once it printed, it was of good quality, but the waiting was torture!
Also, the HP utility program does not communicate with the cartridge to display toner levels, etc. Not the end of the world, but...
HP has apparently figured out a way to keep me from purchasing a non-HP cartridge by making printing mind-numbingly slow. I used this cartridge for about 4 pages before I purchased an HP 83X cartridge.
I was hopeful, but did not have good luck with this product.

Comments about LD Compatible HY Black Toner Cartridge for HP 83X:

I have been purchasing toner cartridges for my computer printing for years now. I have never had a cartridge that didn't meet the standards that I expect and I do a lot of printing. They are always easy to prepare and put into the printer. I am ready to print in a matter of just a few minutes. The best part is the shipping - from the west coast to the east coast (literally) in just about three days and delivered to my door. They are super!
