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.

Great product, just as good as the manufacturer's product.



Very disappointed


This product was terrible, as was the customer service! I installed the cartridge and immediately began getting black smudges all over my printed pages. The first page was generally fine, but the toner continued to build up with each additional page getting progressively worse with more and more smudges. I attempted to call your customer service number and after going through the phone tree, was left with only a voice mail option. I was so disgusted with the lack of human help (and this was during your posted customer service hours) that I threw your cartridge in the trash and ordered from another company.



I would buy this product again.


I really appreciated the quick shipping time.



I will continue to use these products


I have been cautious about purchasing inks and toners that are not provided by the equipment manufacturer. However, the ridiculously high prices of these products from the manufacturers caused me to consider other sources. After purchasing and using an LD remanufactured toner product I was very pleased with the result and I will be continuing my future purchases from that source.



Great savings for good product


Works fine in my HP printer and so much cheaper.



Excellent customer service


I had an issue with one of the cartridges and they replaced with no issue. I used Supply Guys before and they did not honor their product. Highly recommend. Ink is high quality. I am a real estate broker so the quality is very important.

works as good as HP


We always buy from LD Products in lieu of making the ridiculous prices charged for authentic HP. Works just as good. LD, Thanks for providing your service.

Black toner not as dark, poor quality printing


We are disappointed with the most recent black cartridge. It is printing fainter than we are accustomed to with using your products.

Very Happy


I was skeptical when the product description said reconditioned or something like that. The price was great and the person on the phone seemed professional so I ordered it and crossed my fingers. It arrived the day they said it would. It was packaged beautifully. The cartridge/drum fit perfectly and me printer was up and running in no time. The print quality was every bit as good as HP new product but 1/3 the price. I will buy this over and over again now!
