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.

It is very important that the LD inks perform as well as the genuine Canon inks, as I use them in my Canon Pro-100 photo printer. Color depth, clarity and durability are critical in producing fine prints. I believe LD inks provide the same quality as the originals. LD inks are well sealed to stay fresh for months before being used. They do emit a slight antiseptic odor for a few seconds until the ink on the paper dries. This is more just a comment and not an issue with me.

I was hoping to use this ink to create fine art prints. The only good thing I can say is that it was much cheaper than cannon ink. The color pigments were inconsistent, and lacked vividness. All the prints I attempted to make were off in color, and had lines and spots through them. My printer is not longer working the same since trying these cartridges... No one should use this product, I want my money back!

Be careful handling

By Jeff

Comments about CLI-42 Set of 8 Cartridges for Canon:

I replaced 2 cartridges and I have not noticed any change in quality compared with the original Canon inks. However, I noticed that the Canon cartridges have some sort of a sponge to hold the liquid while these have just liquid ink. When changing the cartridges I got ink on my hands. I recommend caution and perhaps using rubber gloves when changing the cartridges.

CLI-42 Light Gray was missing from the set of eight

By Charles

from Taos NM

Verified Buyer

Comments about CLI-42 Set of 8 Cartridges for Canon:

It was not a set of eight but only seven loose boxes. The cardboard boxes were of different types & logos. Perhaps some were very old. Not as professional as I have come to expect.

The rollerball pens & Sharpie boxes appeared to have damage.

The xerox paper s in excellent condition.
