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.

If you have an HP ink-jet printer and aren't refilling your own ink cartridges, you're wasting a lot of money and TIME. OEM HP cartridges have a "lifetime" clock in them, plus the ink in them turns into sludge in less than 3 weeks in my experience (with 6 HP printers).Re-manufactured cartridges have longer life ink, but the print quality isn't always best. Re-filling your own keeps the ink fresh (with normal use), keeps the print heads cleaner and make better photo quality prints with far less waste. It takes a little time to clean and re-fill a cartridge, and it can be a little messy. A drop of ink is like a drop of blood...it doesn't just wipe-off. If you use an XL cartridge a month, or a standard one in more than a couple of months, get a pair of re-manufactured cartridges so you always have one full on-hand, and start "rolling your own". The time we wasted with OEM cartridge issues (call HP, yadda, yadda), the co$t, and the print quality will make you a believer.

I followed the instructions to fill OEM cartridge, used enough ink, but didn't fill the tanks as printer showed low ink level. The ink came out of the bottom and messed up the pages later. I must have done something wrong. There should be an instructional video with Do's and Don'ts. Be careful, if you are old like me who needs detailed instructions!

Comments about LD Inkjet Refill Kit for HP 61/61XL Color:

I got my kit and followed all the steps as instructed. Im glad I left the cartridge on a napkin because when I came back to install after a few hours, the cartridge had bleed out all of the ink I had just injected into it. The bleeding would have destroyed my printer had I installed it right away.

    I followed the directions exactly and even after cleaning printer heads multiple times pages were streaky and faded. Went and bought cartridges and they work perfectly, the first time.
