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.

Color Cartridges Poor Quality


I already wrote to you about your color cartridges. Quality is poor and they clogged my Canon Pixma ip110 printer. Yellow and red fade quickly and no matter how many times I cleaned the printer sprinklers, it didn't work. I tried with a Canon original cartridge (which cost me dearly) and had no problem,. I threw away 3 of your color cartridges almost full or half-full... I still have one more that will try again, but honestly I'm not very optimistic about the result. You black cartridges work without a problem. Most likely I will have to change supplier when I'll re-order color cartridges



As Good as Canon but . . .


Both the PGI35 and the CLI36 cartridges were no charge replacements because the original cartridges I had ordered a year previously had expired and wouldn't work by the time I needed them. Customer support sent replacements without any hassle. But even the new cartridges have rather short expiration dates; as I recall the CLI36 was less than a year. I don't do a lot of printing, so this could potentially be an ongoing problem for me, a problem I've never had with Canon cartridges. That being said the CLI36 seems to be as good as the Canon at a fraction of the price. I had already installed my last Canon black cartridge so that I could print while waiting for the replacements, so I have not tried the PGi35 yet. Price is great. Performance is great. But limited shelf life is a concern for me. I am wondering if I dare purchase backups as I have always done with Canon cartridges.



Works well. Good price


Works well. Good price





LD Cartridges work much better than the G&G brand in my printer. (You normally always send me LD but this time I received G&G)



I will not purchase anymore remanufactured cartridges.


Until recently, I have been very happy with the LD remanufactured cartridges. However, of late the quality of the cartridges have been inferior to any I have received over the years. The printer works well with Canon cartridges but not at all with the LD remanufactured cartridges.



I would buy again


All good



Poor quality this purchase


Very poor ink application

On the move



Poor results


Good price but not printing smooth as times prior, cleaned rollers, other in printer so appears to be poor ink quality
