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.

can these cartridges be refilled?

george

The remanufactured cartridges are only intended to be a one time use cartridges. They can be refilled but it is not recommended as the quality can't be guaranteed. It's best to use OEM original branded cartridges for refilling.

No never buy your re manufactured ink from you.

1

I have tried to contact you many times about your product I purchased from you. Both the black and color Re manufactured cartridges work very poorly the print from them is very faded and not bright in print like all other cartridges I have purchased in the past from other company's I had originally thought it might be my printer and a friend of mine took my 3 year old empty cartridges and refilled them for me at his home and there as bright as the manufactures cartridges bought new. Maybe your ink is old I do not know but I want better ones and yours are not acceptable. I will purchase tne ones from you but I want at least credit for the ones sent and I also deserve a break in price for the inconvenience of this problem. I hope this time your at least decent enough to respond to this problem.

YOU HAVE LOST A CUSTOMER

1

I am very Dissatisfied with my ink purchase. My first purchase of ink was a package of three #36XL. One of the three did not work in my printer. On my second purchase of ink #36XL, none of the three worked in my printer. I called to complain, Your response I had opened the packages of ink. I said, of course, that is how I know they did not work. I have purchased a new printer and therefore do not need #36XL ink. Your office said you would replace the #36XL ink with more #36XL ink. They would not refund my money. You have lost a customer. I am now getting my ink from a different supplier.

I use the printer for a few sheets daily and am more than satisfied with the prints and the price. My printer wants to perform an alignment check each time I turn it on. It performs the check then requests another alignment check. I ignore this and go on with my printing.
