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 Q6470A / 501A Black Laser Toner for HP

    Q:

    I purchased one of these new and sealed. I installed it into my HP Color LaserJet CP3505dn and it printed about 850 copies just fine. Then horizontal black lines began appearing in all documents. I went through HP Print Quality Troubleshooting procedure and proved the problem was with this black cartridge which is supposed to have over 5000 pages left. I put it back in the factory box with all of the test pages. I can send it to you for your inspection. I would like you to send me a replacement as soon as possible.

      Hi, this toner is actually magenta. However due to its dark coloring, it is most often mistaken for red.

We have been buying refurbished replacement black and color ink cartridges from this vendor for five or so years. New cartridges are expensive to replace & so the fall back is to buy refurbished that 4INKJets sells. The cartridges are fairly complex and the black will go first, then the yellow. I date the cartridge when it is first installed so I have some idea as to how well it is performing. So far all have performed well. I usually get 14-18+ months out of a cartridge. I use laser paper, as this is a laser printer - rather than buy the cheaper "all purpose" paper as I think that helps the print quality as well as keeps the printer happy, which is 7+ years old. I wouldn't say this is the best printer HP has put out, but I dread the day when either it bites the dust or the cartridges are no longer available. I am an Amazon buy freak in regards to returns and service - so buying off the "Amazon grid" is nerve racking to say the least. This vendor has been great as far as shipping & returns. Cartridges are packed well - in bubble wrap. We have only had to contact customer service one time through the years and must say their customer service was right on top of the problem. Sent an email & got a response the next day; with a note that replacement cartridge on its way in 2-4 days vs 2-4 weeks! We will keep buying as long as cartridges are available & the printer keeps on putting out quality printing.

Comments about LD Remanufactured Q6470A / 501A Black Laser Toner for HP:

The Black replacement couldn't be recognized by our printer. Called the 800 number and the rep said he would get a replacement out immediately, no need to return the bad one. Installed the replacement, it prints very faintly. If I remove it and tilt it back and forth, it will print normally, but starts printing faintly again. Have to repeat the tilting process........very frustrating. Will be calling the 800 number again tomorrow. We have purchased replacements several times over the years and this is the first time we have experienced this problem.
