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.

Nice kit but major issue with instructions

Comments about LD Refill Kit for HP 94 Black Ink:

The items in the refill kit (ink container, cartridge holder, plunger, syringe) seem to be of very high quality. However, I did not actually get a chance to test the product as I ended up damaging the print cartridge despite carefully following the instructions. On step #6, the instructions say to "insert the needle into the fixing base". I followed this instruction and ended up both bending the needle and damaging the print head so that the print cartridge will no longer work (as the needle scratched the print head when it was inserted into the base). I realized afterwards that the syringe tip *without the needle* should have been inserted. I sent a couple emails to LD support to let them know of this issue but never heard back. This is unfortunate as the OEM HP print cartridge was ruined and the refill ink was wasted. Hopefully this can serve as a warning to others purchasing this refill kit.

Comments about LD Inkjet Refill Kit for HP 56 Black:

The product arrived within 2 days of ordering and worked as advertised. However, I take issue with the instructions which states to only fill with 10 ml of ink (no more). The cartridge holds 20 ml ink and to add only 10 ml is not completely filling it. I would suggest a better way is to fill by weight. In the case of the HP56 cartridge, that is to fill to 50 mg by weight. Also the supply container is filled to 20 mg whereas the container is made to hold 30 ml of ink. By filling the supply container to its full capacity, and charging more for the kit, there would be less non-recyclable waste when the contents of the kit are depleted and then thrown away. Your comments.
