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.

  • LD Compatible Q5949X / 49X HY Black Toner for HP

    Q:

    I've purchased a lot of the 49x's for my printer, but the photo you have now is different and there seems to be some sort of hood attachment at the top that is not on any of my other cartridges and would not fit into my printer. Is the wrong picture up?

Having always replaced with original HP toner I decided to take a chance with a re-manufactured replacement. It turns out that I had nothing to fear because the product I received from 4inkjets has done the job for almost a year now. Yes, I know I just purchased "this one" but the product that "this one" will be replacing is the re-manufactured replacement I purchased from 4inkjets almost a year ago. (I am so pleased with it that I wanted to be sure to have a back-up once my current toner ran out so I didn't have to be without my printer or "heaven forbid" have to pay full price through a local office supply store.)

Wrong Size Cartridge

The cartridge was the wrong size and didn't fit my printer. I sent it back. Waiting for a response when LD receives it. Thanks.

Shipped like they just don't care!

Comments about LD Compatible Q5949X / 49X HY Black Toner for HP:

They shipped this delicate toner cartridge without any packaging. You know the thin, light duty boxes these cartridges come in are meant for store display, not shipping! They slap a label on it and when it goes through ups, the box looks more like a bag when you get it. Open it up as soon as you get it and look for broken parts! Lazy, poor quality shipping, but it is one of the the cheapest cartridges out there and only one out of every 3 will be broken when you receive it... And they will send a replacement.

What can I do with my old cartridge. HP used to take back the old cartridge - but there is nothing in your package that suggests that I do the same thing.
