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.

  • Brother Compatible TN221BK Black Toner

    Q:

    Why does printer not recognize new toner cartridge as being full?
    Asked on 4/1/2017 by Robert from FL

    1 answer

    • A:

      We truly sorry for any trouble and inconvenience! It is normal for non-genuine cartridges to read with empty or low ink levels since the manufacturer can block third-party technology for that feature. You can usually bypass ink status error messages by holding down the "OK" or "Resume" button for 5 seconds on your machine. If that does not work, try a quick hard reset. If the steps was not successful please let us know so we can assist you efficiently. Feel free to reach us through email, live chat or call us at 888-321-2552 for immediate assistance. We'll be happy to help you!

I bought a Brother Color laser printer just about a year ago. A few weeks later, I bought compatible replacement cartridges. This is my first time not buying OEM cartridges on any laser. I've been skeptical about service, and quality, not that you can't run into problems with OEMs. I ran out of black toner at just one year and replaced the cartridge from my previously bought LD Cartridges. The printer would not clear the "out of toner" message. So I got online, and "chatted" with an service person. After a very short review, they sent me to their tech's via phone. This was an easy transition and they already knew my problem when I spoke to them. It was determined the new cartridge was defective - this can happen to any cartridge. They told me a new one would be shipped out that day and asked me to send back the old one, in the same box, and included a prepaid label. Frankly I was skeptical but I did what they asked. The new cartridge came within a couple of days and I installed it without a hitch. And, in fact I had to replace the other three colors within a couple of days also and they were all fine. I loved the personal service and the fact they did what they said they would. I'll buy from LD CARTRIDGES again, in a heartbeat.

I was am sadly disappointed with 4InkJets' TN 221 toner cartridge. I purchased this for my Brother laser printer after I ran out of toner in the middle of printing an important wedding invitation order. Despite every possible adjustment to get the best possible print (paper thickness for slower input speed and longer heat time, resetting the drums) I had consistent problems with shadowing, toner dust, and flaking. Even for casual printing this is unacceptable. I am shipping the toner back for a refund.

Comments about Brother Compatible TN221BK Black Toner:

This toner did not work in my printer which is a Brother MFC9130CW. It left gray bands across the pages even after printing 20 pages in succession. This toner was purchased as an extra to go along with the color cartridge toner set that I purchased at the same time. As soon as I put my old cartridge back in and printed a page, the gray bands were gone. The company did send me another black cartridge with a different "batch/run" number just in case the problem was occurring to just the one batch....that toner also left gray bands across the pages.
