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.

I would recommend this company and products I will buy again


I had checked the price of the cartridge at the chain where I bought the printer. One price was about $78, plus tax and another was $81, plus tax. Got it for about $17 from these guys, which included free shipping in about 3 days. Works fine, can't tell the difference. :-)



Great Company; great product.


Perfect product - love this company.

Your My Source for Replacement Cartridges!


Ordering process was really easy, free shipping and I received the new cartridge in just a couple of days. Perfect!



I will buy again


My other cartridge started running out. That would be the last one I ordered from LD over a year ago. So I ordered another one, but during the time I ordered the new one I took the old one out ande gave it a good shake and put it back in. As of right now I have not used the new one yet. I am happy to say when I do need it, I will have it. I have never been disappointed with LD other than one time. I ordered ink for my HP printer like I alwas do, put in the model number and the ink supply shows up. Well I ordered four cartridges. When they arrive I discovered the black would not fit my printer. I called customer support and told them it would not fit. When I gave them the cartridge number I was told I ordered the photo cartridge which does not fit my model printer. I explained how I come about ordering this cartridge and was told I would have to send it back for a refund or exchange. I tried to explain it wasn't my fault they had the cartridge in the wrong place. No help there. It would cost as much as another cartridge to ship it back. I was very disappointed with LD. I order a lot of ink and toner from them and am always sending others to their web site. Other than that I am pleased with their products and will order again but look very close to what they have on their line up for my product.





Great product, great price, fast shipping
