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've been buying from 4inkjet for years. Experience with different printer inks has mostly been good. In this latest example, first of three of black ink I bought for Epson XP-800 leaked more than others have in the past. Fortunately, it all leaked onto desk instead of carpet. Obviously, I'll be more attentive and careful next time; I'm just saying this one cartridge leaked more than any other I've ever bought in past from 4inkjets. Will, of course, remain a customer. Thanks again for delivering GREAT value.

Unlike previous cartridge orders of this kind, I had difficulties with my recent order. Right after installing, printing black text came out streaky. A head test showed the black cartridge not performing correctly. After trying another cartridge and seeing the same result, I did numerous head cleaning cycles that used up a lot of ink from all the cartridges (5). Eventually it began to operate properly, but I never had problems like this until my latest order.

Comments about Remanufactured Epson T273XL020 HY Black Inkjet Cartridge:

A few years ago I had trouble with your refills on Epson printers. I took a break from buying LD. I have since tried LD again. The first batch of black seemed to work ok, but I have since replaced the colored cartridges yellow, cyan, magenta, black and photo black and the new cartridges appear to be almost empty. I replaced 4 and three of the four say they need to be replaced already in one day. Initially they did show full after installation but now say they need to be replaced. Confused and disappointed..

Be aware! Don't buy this product!

Comments about Remanufactured Epson T273XL020 HY Black Inkjet Cartridge:

I bought the black ink and also the color ink set as well. They simply don't work. You can't print out anything meaningful. Half of the lines are missing. I go ahead to clean the printer head. Not helpful at all. After head cleaning for a few of times (about 4), I got a message saying the cartridge is empty now and I need a new replacement. :-(

Please be aware and avoid this product.

I use the ink for personal photography and use a lot of it. It's readily available and easy to use. Over the years I can only recall one problem and it was taken care of immediately. The price is also good and there are no apparent down sides.

Worst ink ever

Comments about Remanufactured Epson T273XL020 HY Black Inkjet Cartridge:

I usually bought remanufactured ink from another website and never had problem. This time I accidentally bought ink from this website. The new black ink blocked my printer head and caused lots of missing dots. After washed the head several times and wasted half of the cartridge, the problem is still bad. I've just bought a new genuine EPSON ink and will never buy an ink from this website again.

Comments about Remanufactured Epson T273XL220 HY Cyan Inkjet Cartridge:

This is my second time I have ordered these cartridges from you and still have ink in the first ones. I don't do a lot of printing so it may be awhile before I use the ones I just got. The only problem is Epson sends me messages that I have the wrong cartridge in the printer and it will not work until I open the printer and remove and reinstall the cartridge. I guess they want you to use there ink, but I'll stick with these. Not sure if there is a solution to this problem and I'm hoping that the printer does not reject them, that would be a problem.

Comments about Remanufactured Epson T273XL020 HY Black Inkjet Cartridge:

I'm normally hesitant to buy generic stuff. It's always been perfect quality, 1000 times cheaper than buying new and brand name and I feel like the cartridges are fuller. I'll be a lifelong customer! They're super amazing too in the customer service area. I ordered the wrong cartridge and they happily found and fixed the issue. I love this company!
