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 don't often open email from people I don't know, but this is one time I'm very glad that I did. I do a lot of printing with my genealogy and this ink is much more affordable. It prints just as good as any name brand. I have recommended the company to everyone.

I did order this ink cartridge for a Canon i9100 printer but it did not fit. It did not stay in the ink carrier no matter what I had tried. I call Inkcartriges and they told me this was an universal cartridge that should have fitted my printer. As you can see in the pictures, the bottom of the cartridge is completly different. The correct one has a small pin sticking out; the corners of both cartridges looks different, even the text in the box it came is wrong. I imaging this is what makes the Inkcartridges sample incompatible with my printer.

Comments about BCI6 Set of 18 ink Cartridges for Canon i9900, iP8500- BEST DEAL!:

The old printer still works great, no need to replace an edge to edge, 11 X 17 capacity printer just because the company no longer caries the ink. Happy so far, waiting to see if heads get gummed up, or if the cartridges last. If things continue to go well, I'll be back.

Comments about i860, iP4000 Set of 11 Ink cartridges for Canon:

Cartridges shipped quickly and fit nicely into the ink carriage.

One suggestion, though. The manufacturer should put a mesh pad of non-ink absorbing material to help slow down the burn rate of the ink. It flows to easily.

Comments about BCI6 Set of 18 ink Cartridges for Canon i9900, iP8500- BEST DEAL!:

Haven't used it much yet, but what I have printed has been fine, it's nice that the cartridges hold much more ink than the Canon ones do, (the Canon ink cartridges are ridiculously small. The biggest problem was one cartridge spilled a bunch of ink out when pulling the seal off of it, all over my hands and my chair, that sucked. Unknown concert is the Canon ink openings are round and these are oval they fit in just fine I am just concerned about ink leakage over time but will have to wait and see.
