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.

Needed to print about 500 4x6 pictures quickly so used the Xerox Phaser. The original cartridges were nearing empty and ordered these to get the job finished cheaply, prints were for a kids party. Quality was not critical but was pleasantly surprised when the prints looked exactly like the ones printed from the Xerox cartridges.

Just got my Xerox Phaser 6500n and soon ran low on toner (they say starter toner good for 1k pages - more like 300 if you have photos). I was printing 150 funeral booklets for a deceased friend. His photo was large on front of ltr size folded. Also had a light screened image on back that faded to 0%. Photo and screen looked great with OEMs... ran out of Magenta, replaced with LD compatible and photo looked terrible and banding on screen. After a lot of fooling with settings and modifying photo in Photoshop, finally got photo to look pretty good. Screen still banded so I removed that photo. Bottom line: first results not as good as OEM. If OEM rated 10, LD would be 5 or 6. But I am not going to pay $115 for a cartridge. $19 vs $115 = I'll settle for less and try and compensate with fiddling with settings. For normal use this is a great deal. If you need true color for images, be forewarned, you may be disappointed.

Excellent Service and Product

Comments about Compatible Xerox Phaser 6500/WorkCentre 6505 HY Black Toner:

The printer would not print in black, only gray. We had done all the trouble shooting we could and I called LD. The individual I spoke wth believed that it was a bad toner cartridge. LD sent me a new cartridge. It also failed to print in black. Finally, my son brought the fuser and imager from his printer over to our house. He put the fuser in and still no black printing. He swapped the imager out and it printed perfectly. We found a new printer cheaper than a new imager, so we purchased the printer. Still have both prior black cartridges for the future. The cartridges have worked perfectly. I will continue to use them in the future.

This K toner works in my Xerox Phaser 6500dn printer. Had to print roughly 25 pages before the new K toner was worked into full black color.

Good job LD. I'll be back.

This product is Awesome!!

Comments about Compatible Xerox Phaser 6500/WorkCentre 6505 HY Black Toner:

Don't pay attention to others claim that it prints grey. It does not print "greyish"!! They must have a printer problem that is not related to the toner. It prints "BLACK", just like it is suppose to print. It's a great Black Toner for my Xerox Phaser 6500. Yes, it's hard to believe that it is $100 cheaper than buying the original from Xerox. But, it works perfectly!!
