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 have been using LD ink for many years without any problems or unresolved issues. The ink quality is excellent. Over the years there have been some problems with cartridges not being recognized by my printer. LD made good on every issue, especially the last. Three inks were not recognized. I called LD and they shipped three replacements via USPS. USPS destroyed the shipment en route. I again called LD, advised them of the problem, and they reshipped a new order, all without any charge to me. Now, that is what I call customer service!!

This is the 3rd review I've tried to post here to warn people against the purchase of these ink cartridges for the their Canon Pro-10.

They leak, the ink is thin and cheap, it runs in big blots out of the print head and IT HAS DAMAGED MY PRINTER TO THE POINT I HAD TO TAKE IT IN FOR CLEAING AN SERVICE.

All that within 3 days of installing these cartridges.

Apparently LD Products does not allow NEGATIVE REVIEWS since they have not posted the previous 2.

I have even replied to their "Certified Purchaser" email.

Bottom Line: DO NOT BUY THESE CARTRIDGES. They are CHEAP in EVERY sense of the word and WILL damage your printer

Comments about Canon PGI-72 Compatible Ink Set of 10:

I have been using ink from LD for many years in Epson, Brother and Canon photo inkjet printers. The ink has always performed equal to OEM ink in color and appearance. The one time I had a problem with a cartridge, I returned it and LD quickly replaced it with a new one. No questions, no problems.

      This is a follow-up to my initial review.

      D O N O T B U Y !!!!!

      They leak all over the place, printing is a matter of cleaning up the BLOTS!

      They have damaged my printer and I will have to take it to be cleaned and serviced.

      Wish I had never been attracted to the low price.

      BUY THE EXPENSIVE OEM from Canon. They end up being WAY CHEAPER to use.

      D O N O T B U Y !!!

      I am a certified purchaser.
