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 haven't used the color cartridges I bought yet because they were in bad shape when they arrived. I contacted the company and they were as gracious as could be and immediately sent replacements and postage to return the defective ones. I have used the black ink in the past and it was great. This company has won a long-term customer by their great customer service.

Both of the color cartridges I ordered had expiration dates of June 2013. This mean when I received them they were already 3 months past due, while the black has a date of April 2015.

So far the color cartridge has not given me any problem, but I feel no product with a past due expiration should be shipped. My need was immediate, so I did not have the time to return, which is what I should have done.

Every time I print, I'm worried about a color faliure and i should not feel that with a new purchase.

Comments about Remanufactured T008201 Color Ink Cartridge for Epson:

cartridges arrived quickly but it was hard to get them to print a clear message. I had to run the head cleaning program 10 to 15 times to get a clear print. Once it started working the print is clear and clean.

A problem with pulling off the sealing tape on the cartridges. I had to use a razor blade to clean the cartridge and even then didn't get all of the tape off.

Comments about Remanufactured T008201 Color Ink Cartridge for Epson:

The first cartridge I opened was manufactured without a covering, so I got ink all over me.

The second did not produce any red printing, only blue/green.

Doesn't work for me

Comments about Remanufactured T008201 Color Ink Cartridge for Epson:

I'm disappointed that the colors are not true on my printer. Apparently my printer doesn't read or apply the colors correctly I've used remanufactured replacements before, from another company and it worked well. However, the last replacements from even that company didn't work correctly either. I'm OK with just putting up with it so hat I can use the printer. Prints that need 'correct colors' will have to come from another printer.
