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'm slightly less than halfway to the 175 page count and the cartridge has performed flawlessly. I did have to send back the first cartridge but I immediately received a replacement that works great. I will update this review when I get closer to the end of the cartridge's life.

The best part of this purchase for me was dealing with the people at Ink Cartridge. They didn't beat around the bush, try to sneak anything by me or do anything other than being most helpful. There was never a question on their part and they replied immediately to my concern and sent my replacement cartridge before I even sent back the defective one. Not many companies would be that trusting.

All I can say is thank you Ink Cartridge for a superior product, superb customer service, and the ability to perform to the highest standards.

This was my first purchase From INK cartridges. I bought 4 black &
2 color lexmark re manufactured cartridges. I replaced my empty
cartridges with an original factory lexmark and your black cartridge.
I noticed a drastic difference between the fill levels of the two cartridges and after just three days the black cartridge is indicating the need for replacement very soon. I hope this was an anomoly but I guess I will have to wait to see if the other 3 exhibit the same flaw.

Comments about Remanufactured Lexmark 4 Black Ink:

Ink supply was already less than 1/2 upon insertion of cartridge. I thought I was purchasing a fully loaded cartridge. I would never purchase another one from you.

Comments about Remanufactured Lexmark 4 Black Ink:

I find this product does the job - and is saving me some money at the same time. It is ridiculous that a normal ink cartridge costs almost as much as a new printer. So when I found this product thru this company I was more than happy to give it a try.
