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.

  • Remanufactured 78 13 Piece Set of Ink for Epson

    Q:

    How do I get my Epson RX 680 to recognize an LD cartridge when I get the error message.
    Asked on 7/17/2017 by Dave from Ligonier, PA

    1 answer

    • A:

      It is normal for non-genuine cartridges to read error messages, since the manufacturer can block third-party technology for that feature. However, resetting the printer should bypass the error message. If issue persist, please contact us through email, livechat or call us at 888-321-2552 for immediate assistance and we'll take care of you!

I have a Epson printer. I have always used Epson ink. I loaded your black cartridge first. Everything went great. After a few weeks I loaded your Yellow cartridge. Printer would not charge cartridge. I tried a few thinks and finally got it to charge. The Epson status monitor did show the yellow cartridge was full of ink. So I printed a 8x10 picture of wild flowers. The print came out very blue. I used the nozzle check it shower no yellow in the pattern. I took your yellow cartridge out & replaced it with the empty Epson cartridge & it showed the red X that is empty. So I put your yellow back in and no yellow came out. I checked the status monitor & it said I have faulty black & yellow cartridges. So I removed your two cartridges replaced with Epson.

Comments about Remanufactured 6 Pack for Epson T078:

Only used one cartridge so far, but it worked flawlessly. Thanks, InkCartridges, that you allow a cost effective way to keep our printer working when we ONLY use black ink yet the printer won't work without ink in the color cartridges.

Comments about Remanufactured 78 Light Magenta Ink for Epson:

I purchased all 6 colors for my Epson Artisan 50. All of the cartridges I used worked flawlessly.
No printer complaints that the cartridge is not original & not from Epson as past cartridge purchases have been. These remanufactured cartridges worked well. I just wish there was a little more ink in every cartridge. I sure go thru them very quickly.
Thanks LD. You make good ink cartridges.

Comments about Remanufactured Epson T078120 Black Inkjet Cartridge:

I purchased 3 extra black along with a 6 piece set which includes black as well. so far both of the blacks that i have put in do not work. My printer is still telling me that i need black ink and yes I removed the yellow sticker. Not happy at all especially when i read the reviews and this is supposed to be satisfactory ink.

Comments about Remanufactured Epson T078120 Black Inkjet Cartridge:

No where have I found a store or website that can even come close to matching the low, low, low price that LD charges for replacement printer ink cartridges. I tried several other stores, but some of them were not recognized by my printer so that I could not use them. Thank You LD for making printing affordable for people who can't afford the ridiculously high prices that most stores charges. Consumers end up paying triple and quadruple the price that we paid for the printer itself after just a couple of purchases of replacement printer ink cartridges at other stores. I HIGHLY recommend your website for the purchase of ink cartridges. I will continue to use your products in the future.
