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.

    Q:

    The last cartridge I purchased at Staples was Kodak 30XL Black I - 041771550530 - should I order the Kodak 1550532 from you?

    The last colored ink cartridge was 30C Color In -041771022853. Which one should I order from you?

      Thank you so much for checking with us! Our Kodak 30XL Black cartridge number is 1550532 and the Kodak 30XL Color cartridge number is 1341080. Those would be the two numbers for the series 30XL.

I had previously commented on this ink , but somehow it must not have made it to the post? Anyway at first I was okay with it , but the picture details were not the best quality -( a little blurry around edges)! However after a few days of the ink setting in my printer , the quality has really became very good! I had only originally printed two photos at first! Maybe the ink had to set in my copier a day or two? Anyway I will be buying more! It's very nice to be able to buy ink and not have to rob myself of a meal or not having gas in my car , taking out a second mortgage on my home all for the fat cat's overly priced name brand ink! Lol! I have not used my black ink yet as I haven't needed it , but if the quality is as good as the colored ink , I will be a 100% dedicated and content customer, making this my ink buying site from now on! You cannot go wrong with this! Really nothing to think about!

Compatibility

The cartridges are supposed to be compatible with Kodak cartridges for my Kodak printer.
They are not and now I have 3 cartridges that won't work.

Dated Products need lead time.

By Janet

Verified Buyer

Comments about Compatible Kodak 1550532 Black Ink:

These last cartridges I purchased to have available when needed. However, I believe that when they are needed, the date on them will be long past as the cartridges sent have an expiration date or "Best When Used By" date only a month or so away. I like this company and in general I like the products I have received and used from past orders. Only this time, the dates on the packages indicates the product may no longer work well when installed.

Comments about Kodak #30XL Set of 8 Inkjet Cartridges:

I USE THE KODAK #30XL INK CARTRIDGES IN MY ESP OFFICE 2170 PRINTER. THEY ALWAYS PERFORM AS GOOD AS ADVERTISED! I WOULD NOT CONSIDER BUYING INK CARTRIDGES FROM ANY COMPANY OTHER THAN LD PRODUCTS.COM. I'VE TRIED SEVERAL OTHER SUPPLIERS THAT DID NOT OFFER THE QUALITY AND SERVICE I GET FROM LD PRODUCTS. TRY THEM, YOU WILL BE GREATLY SATISIFIED!
