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.

    Software compatibility of the cartridge

    Will these cartridges cause the HP Laserjet Pro to complain about non OEM unit all the time? Any problem in software setup?

      You may get a warning when first installed but after you print your first page they should print the life of the cartridge with no other warnings. We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee so you can purchase with confidence.

  • LD Remanufactured CE410A / 305A Black Laser Toner for HP

    Q:

    Do I replace one cartridge at a time as needed?

    My HP color 400 Laserjet Pro came with starter cartridges. It's telling me the black has only 50 copies left. I have four LD (HP305a) cartridges on hand. I assume I only need to replace the black now and the other color as they empty. It also appears that black may be the big user and maybe I should order some spares in black?
    Asked on 11/14/2014 by Jazzadvocate from Dayton, OH, USA

    1 answer

    • A:

      You are correct! You would only need to replace one cartridge at a time depending on which one runs out. If you black needs to be replaced, then you only need to replace that one. It is true that most customers go through black toner faster as they do not print often in color. If you are a heavy printer of black/white documents then it could be beneficial to stock black on hand. If you do this please keep in mind we have a one year warranty and it is better to only purchase what you will use within one year.

I really wanted this ink to work for me since it would save a lot of money. But for certain graphics it printed an uneven coloration. For everyday use this would be perfect. I sell invitations, so I need a higher quality ink for my printing. I guess I will stick to using the expensive genuine ink.
