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 use this product is used for business needs. I have yet to actually test the cartridge out yet, but if it does not meet expectations I will surely let everyone know. However, I am thrilled with their delivery. I received the cartridge in two days.

We bought this as a spare, and haven't had to use it yet. I assume it will function perfectly, just as all our other LD purchases have in the past.

Terrible

Comments about LD Remanufactured Q5942X / 42X HY Black Laser Toner for HP:

This toner worked for about two weeks and then started printing black all over. The papers had huge lines, smudges, ink splashes, etc. The inside of the machine had toner all over, we cleaned, and cleaned again, but still a terrible print quality.

The best value all around

Comments about LD Remanufactured Q5942X / 42X HY Black Laser Toner for HP:

The value I get from this toner and LD Products is simply unmatchable. Before, I used to buy the manufacturer's toner at $200 or more above LD Product prices. Once I discovered LD Products my savings have been incredible. Last year, I switched to another toner provider after I succumbed to their relentless phone calls and offers they made to match LD Product prices. Unfortunately, printing was uneven and after a few dozen of pages printed, pages started coming out dirty and with faded areas. Happily, I returned to LD Products for LD Products has proven to me to be the best.

Defective

Comments about LD Remanufactured Q5942X / 42X HY Black Laser Toner for HP:

The product received was defective: Ink being put out is so much it is soiling the printing, personnel, and paper.

Not the first time for defective product from 4inkjets.com.

4inkjets.com offers no recycling program option. At a business, there is no viable option for personal recycling of used product.

Not real good overall.

Comments about LD Remanufactured Q5942A / 42A Black Laser Toner for HP:

Was estatic when LD Products finally got Q5942A in their product line. First toner averaged print cost of 0.00798 cents a page versus (the two years I had my HP4240n and LD did not offer Q5942A) around 0.017 to 0.19 cents a page! Thank you, LD!
