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.

Did not work in our Dell Photo 944

First let me say that in the past two years that I have been purchasing from 4inkjets, I have always been very happy with the quality of their Canon printer cartridges, their customer service and their shipping. I will continue to use them. However, I recently purchased some remanufactured Dell black and color cartridges for my Mothers Dell Photo 944. Now this may be an isolated case but, both cartridges triggered a pop up window indicating they where empty even though they clearly where not. It was not a printer issue as the OEM cartridges still worked. I called customer service and they emailed me a return shipping label and issued me a refund. Again, I am very happy with 4inkjets and will continue purchasing from them however I would be reluctant to purchase the Dell.

My drafting program is on a windowsXP computer which means I can not get online to get a new printer. The drafting program people refused to let me transfer their program to a new computer which meant I was stuck with my old printert for which there was no ink available until you. Thankyou

Comments about Remanufactured M4640 Black (Series 5) HY Ink for Dell Photo All-in-One:

I've purchased 9 of these ink cartridges in the past year; only 3 have worked with my printer - doesn't recognize the cartridge or is not compatible. Those cartridges that do work creates a warning that ink level is low and now in "reserve tank". I usually get a ream of printing from a cartridge, but haven't with any of these remanufactured. Cost-wise - nearly $40 per order with one useable cartridge. Not impressed.

Comments about Remanufactured M4640 Black (Series 5) HY Ink for Dell Photo All-in-One:

Cartridge works well--have had 3 of the last 4 from you not work in my printer--this is not a good record. I have been buying from you for many years and your guarantee has covered the bad units. That is good news but the time lost is not very good news. I hope things will improve or I will seek other suppliers for my needs. I hope someone reads this as I think you should know what is going on with your product.

Comments about Remanufactured M4640 Black (Series 5) HY Ink for Dell Photo All-in-One:

I received my ink jets very quickly and was surprised at the quick delivery.
The only problem I see is that my printer does not see this as a ink jet for my printer and tells me that I am low on black ink I still have color ink jets for Dell so I won't have a problem for some time in the future.. Nothing has happened to stop the usage so I don't think I will have a problem we will see in a few days.

The price stated in regular price does not reflect Dell OEM pricing. It is a reflection of general industry-wide pricing for alternative remanufactured products to replace Dell OEM products.
