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 is the best remanufactured black ink I've had the opportunity to get my hands on. With their sticker slapped cleanly over an empty Epson ink cartridge, they refill these and re prep them for another life as an ink cartridge. In my opinion buying remanufactured cartridges is much greener and will save you lots of money in the end. Yes the ink isn't the ultrabrite brandname Epson ink but you get what you pay for. If you need basic ink that will get your printing jobs done, then look no further. InkCartridges is where I'll be buying my ink from now on.

I am returning four 288XL Black cartridges. I had one in my "old" Epson XP- 430 printer, and it failed to print, whilst all the other three C, M, Y posed no problem. The on-line chat CSR was trying her best to remedy my printing issue. Alas to no avail, with seemingly the only option was to ship me four more black XL 288 cartridges.

Because I tried to do a "Head Cleaning"/ "Nozzle Check " at least a half a dozen times with no successful results on the old and the new printer. I purchased a new printer from my local Best Buy store. This was the Epson XP-440 because it was the only one that I found with a little research that used the SAME cartridges. I did not want to purchase another "round" of cartridges.

I put one of the unused "new" remanufactured 288XL cartridges in the new printer (XP-440) and you will never guess…… it failed to print too! I put in another "new" remanufactured 288XL cartridge and it too failed to print.

My conclusion: these things are drying out. It is your practice to ship more black than the other three colors, very practical because most printing for personal use in my household or others (an assumption) is letters such as this one. If you will view my last two orders from your company, (attached copy) please note the dates. I must say, I had previously thrown defective ones away, but that became cost prohibitive, as I am retired and on a strict budget for discretionary spending.

I do not pretend to know the ins or outs of your business, however, from a QC standpoint, your manufacturing steps should be analyzed. Is your product the best it can be
