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.

I ordered 3 photo black and 3 black replacement cartridges. So far 2 out of 6 of these have been bad. One is being misread(?) by the printer as empty even though it appears to be full, I had to use one of your other cartridges in my printer in order for the printer to operate. It would not operate with the erroneous cartridge messages being signaled to my printer. Another replacement cartridge is being accepted by the printer even though the printer is indicating what appear to be erroneous and nonsensical diagnostic messages.

Your Black Ink came fast and "in the pink"!

Comments about Remanufactured Epson T273XL020 HY Black Inkjet Cartridge:

I've finally learned how to load the inks on a newish printer, and once I did it correctly, I tested it, and it printed beautifully! I still don't know where to dispose of the old one, and it seems to me that somehow more black ink should be contained in the cartridge, because black ink is used more often in busy peoples' lives! Maybe a total redesign of all printers on the market? I wish...

Comments about Remanufactured Epson T273XL020 HY Black Inkjet Cartridge:

I had to clean the nozzles 3 or 4 times just to get the black to start working properly which in turn made the other colors run out! Will not be buying again!
