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.

  • Canon Compatible PFI-706 Photo Magenta Ink


    How does this ink compare to Canon OEM ink in terms of color gamut and UV-resistance (fading)?
    Asked on 3/7/2016 by RonSTL

    1 answer

    • A:

      We use the same quality ink that is used in the OEM. The ink in this compatible cartridge will provide the same standards as the OEM in terms of color saturation as well as UV-resistance in regards to fighting fading over time. The only difference with this compatible version is the physical design of the cartridge.

    compatible pfi-706

    do you have any reviews of the canon compatible inks? I am interested in the pfi-706 compatible but would like to know if there has been any experience with using the OEM inks

    • A:

      We currently do not have any customer reviews on the PFI-706 compatible cartridges, however we do have reviews on the standard yield PFI-704 compatible cartridges. The PFI-706 contains more ink for this model and will give you the same quality output as the original Canon cartridges. We do have a 1 year warranty on our cartridges and a 100% satisfaction guarantee. You can see the reviews for the standard PFI-704 (with a 5 star rating) and buy with confidence the PFI-706 cartridges.

Comments about Canon Compatible PFI-706 Black Ink:

I bought the full set of colors for both of my printers. I see no difference with the ink we currently have and the Ink we purchased with LD.

It's been almost 3 weeks with no problems, with constant print jobs going all day long.

This compatible cartridge is not compatible

By Dave

from Denver

Verified Buyer

Comments about Canon Compatible PFI-706 Green Ink:

This is suppose to replace the PFI706G. The product picture is correct, but the shipped box says PFI706 (no G) and externally it says "GR" not "G". I think the manufacturer "G&G" is telling you it is compatible and that is a mistake. It is not. The slots which guide the cartridge will not even allow me to put it in either of my Canon IPF 8400's. I ordered one with another vendor, same thing happened. I think G&G is giving you wrong compatibility information.
