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.

    Thanks

    • A:

      There really is no difference besides the great price you get on the Compatible PGI-225BK cartridge! These are 100% new cartridges that we have manufactured. They contain the same amount of ink, sometimes a bit more, than the OEM cartridges you purchase from Canon. All of our cartridges come with a two year guarantee!

    Can we refill ink into these cartridges

    are these ink cartridges refillable ?.
    Will the chip reset itself if we refill ink ?
    Does LD offer ink refill kits for canon Pixma Mg5320 ( CLI 226 M, c, Y BK and PGI 225 BK)
    Asked on 12/11/2014 by ara from NJ

    1 answer

    • A:

      You can refill certain cartridges, unfortunately the CLI226 and PGI225 series cannot be refilled and we do not have a refill kit for these cartridges. The problem for this particular item is the chip, once it reads empty it can no longer be used. However, if you purchase our compatible cartridges for this model, the chips are set to show the correct ink levels!

I use this product for every day use and it seems to print as well as does the Canon brand. I only know this because I had previously ordered this ink from 4INKJETS. That said, because of the TWO WEEK delay on receiving said ink, I have yet to use the ink from 4INKJETS, as I had to buy ink from another store while awaiting delivery from 4INKJETS.

It will be awhile before I am able to use this product from 4INKJETS because I have to use up the ink that I had to BUY AGAIN so...I am unable to comment on whether or not my new order from 4INKJETS will work as it had in the past. I am hoping it will but if for some reason it does not, I guess I will be stuck with the ink as it will be too late to return it.

Disappointing

Comments about PGI225 & CLI226 Set of 12 Ink cartridges for Canon:

I've tried different software in printing my photos to confirm the print quality I'm getting is from the cartridges themselves. My full-color photos turn out ORANGE no matter what I do. I've replaced the cartridges but get the same results. What a waste!!! I like printing my photos at home but definitely can't rely on these. I'll stick to Canon genuine brand because these generic ones are no longer cost effective.....disappointing.
