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.

This product is completely compatible with the Canon cartridges.
The only difference that I noticed is that the light to indicate that
it is operational, illuminates at the front-bottom instead of the top.
In other words....a non issue. My printer requires 6 cartridges. At
Costco, I found the that cartriges recommended for my printer (however, absent the gray cartridge) sold for $80, for the set of
five. That's $16 per cartridge! At LD Products, I bought the pack-
aged deal, which included 2 each of the 4 colors and the regular
size black and 3 of the extra large black cartridges for $68.90.
That's $5.30 per cartridge.....amazing. Of course, I need to be
fair and point out that I got, what I think, was a $5 holiday coupon from LD Products. I don't normally take the time to write
reviews, but I'm very happy with this purchase.

I live in CO at 5200 feet elevation. I have purchased many Canon ink refills and based on the favorable reviews on this website I ordered this product thinking I would have a comparable product at a more reasonable cost. The product came 2 days ago and I opened the small blue ink cartridge which needed to be replaced in my Canon printer.

To my surprise when I opened it ink was dripping out of the cartridge onto my light tan carpet. Three larger drops and a few smaller drops were clearly visible. I have spent an enormous amount of time and scrubbing effort trying to get the blue spots out of my carpet. THERE STILL IS SOME BLUE VISIBLE ON MY CARPET!

I never had a problem like this with the Canon Cartridges. I do not recommend this product. If you buy it be careful where you open the package.
