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.

I first ordered black cartridges for a Brother MFC 9130CW multipurpoe copier. Then, of course, needed the color cartridges. The black cartridge fit and worked fine, so I ordered the color package of cartridges. Delivered in 3 days, work perfectly and a great saving over other refill. The colors are working as well as I had hoped, and hoped for perfection. I don't know if there wil be a difference in the number of prints yet. I rely on reviews for my decisions and wanted to be sure to respond with honest input.

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 TN225M HY Magenta Toner:

I use the replacement cartridges (Yellow and Magenta) in my Brother HL-3170CDW. The installation was a snap. I did notice that the color tabs are on the LEFT side of the cartridge as opposed to the RIGHT side of the cartridge with the OEM cartridge.

Comments about Compatible Brother TN221BK Black Toner:

Their ink, toner and drums are as good or better than brand OEM typically at 1/3 the price. I was the North American purchasing manager for a for Fortune 50 company and saved thousands of dollars on these products. In all this time I have only had to replace one set of non-working inkjet cartridges. That replacement was simple and fast at no cost to me.

Poor results in Brother MFC-9340CDW

By Jim

from Santa Rosa, CA

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Compatible Brother TN221BK Black Toner:

Every page has a dim grey background. Searching the internet, I found several articles saying that this symptom may result from recycled components which had not been completely cleaned (mixing some old toner with new). I tried a second LD cartridge in case one was a fluke; same problem. Changed the drum unit, still had same problem. Put back the original Brother OEM toner cartridge and the problem went away.

I emailed ldproducts asking for advice, got no response.

Maybe this works in some other Brother printers, but in my experience it is unusable in a MFC-9340CDW
