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.

  • 2 Pack LD Compatible Black Toner Cartridges for HP 85A

    Q:

    I purchased two of your cartridges based on their advertised compatibility with HP 85A, for my HP LaserJet P1102w printer running on a wireless network; my PCs are running Windows 10. However, while I was (somehow) able to get a couple of pages to print (the printing itself looks fine)--suggesting it's not an installation error--I continue to get "printer needs user intervention" messages, and am unable to print consistently, or at all at this point. When I view the status of the printer via the control panel I see the notification "attention required." Windows troubleshooter is no help at all. When I replace my original HP 85A cartridge the printer works again without a problem. Please let me know if you have any suggestions I can try before returning these cartridges to the distributor. Thank you.

The package arrived in horrible shape. The cardboard outer box was somewhat crushed as were the 3 boxes of of cartridges. Each of the cartridge boxes were were in poor shape. It looked as if the cartridges themselves were Ok but I showed the package to UPS manager and he suggested that I should refuse delivery as I should not chance using the cartridges.
The outer box was taped together with tape as it had broken open when being damaged. The taping job looked like a young child had attempted to do the taping. There was one deflated plastic bubble protector but not enough to protect the inner contents from floating about.
I have ordered in the past and was always very satisfied.

We have had problems with the replacements for the Cannon 240 and 241. The ones with the Penguins in the front. I think 5 so far.
You sent replacements. It came at a bad time as we need to print important papers. Had to go to Office Mas and buy one.
