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.

  • LD Remanufactured Black Toner Cartridge for HP 03A

    Q:

    On the front of the cartridge, there is a label with an arrow that states "remove before use". The question is: what does that refer to, in other words remove what?

    On the HP mfr Cartridge, there is a seal tape that you pull from the replacement cartridge before using it. Does the LD Product have one of these? I do not see one.

    Respectfully,

Comments about LD Remanufactured Black Toner Cartridge for HP 03A:

Received my order for the HP 03A and put it on the shelf to be ready for the next tax filing season. On my previous order I had one bad cartridge and LD sent a replacement which is now in use. I recommend LD to all of my clients and friends as these remanufactured toner cartridges last a much longer time then the originals and give great printing which satisfies my needs especially during a busy tax filing season.

Comments about LD Remanufactured Black Toner Cartridge for HP 03A:

I was thrilled to find a replacement ink cartridge for my hp laserjet printer. This printer is around 20 years old but it is workhorse. My other "new" printer requires expensive ink and often has problems. I'm guessing I'll get another 20 years out of my old printer now that I have a new ink cartridge. The copies are perfect!

Comments about LD Remanufactured Black Toner Cartridge for HP 03A:

We have an old HP LaserJet 5P that just keeps going...So, its nice to find toner cartridges that fit it AND are reasonably priced. The print quality of this toner cartridge is as good as the OEM cartridge that came with the printer.

Comments about LD Remanufactured Black Toner Cartridge for HP 03A:

For my HP 5p. Though it works, there is a black line running the length of the left side of each sheet. Also, a faint gray "palor" covers the entire sheet. "Shadow words" cover the page.

Comments about LD Remanufactured Black Toner Cartridge for HP 03A:

I have ordered various brands of cartridges for my laser printer over the years. Some were skimpy on ink, some leaked powder. These are the best non-OEM carts I've ever ordered, will definitely buy it again through this company.
