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.

When I order a product I expect it to do the job for which it was intended. This product satisfies that part and with the price you can't beat it. This similar product at a local office store was $33 for one! I was able to buy 3 of them for less than that and get the same number of prints. I would recommend it. If I had just one issue, make sure you clean the printer nozzle on the PB machine after every 50 uses.

I put in a new cartridge that I had purchased a while back and it didn't print. I tried cleaning the printer head and still not a drop came out. I assumed that the cartridge was too old and had dried out or something and ordered 2 more from LD. Neither of these cartridges made a mark on the envelope either. So then I figured that the postage meter was the problem and I called Pitney Bowes. After trying a bunch of other fixes with their customer service rep, they agreed to send me a new printer head. I installed the new printer head and had the same problem. I then put in the pitney bowes ink that they sent with the printer head and everything worked fine.

I had used this ink in the past successfully, but it seems like they changed something because it does not work anymore.

First cartridge printed on 10 envelopes, only 10. Second one dripped all over my floor, my hands, the machines. Didn't even bother with the third. Returning for a full refund.

      About 1/6 the price of an original, but lasts about 1/3 as long. So overall still cheaper than buying an original.

      We ordered several of these because of the great price compared to what pitney bowes charges. However, we used 2 of them and each time they ruined my print head on my machine.

      ... I've cleaned the Pitney Bowes machine manually and with the inkjet clean function for hours and still can't get this ink to print an even label or even an even test print. Don't waste money on this!
