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.

  • Remanufactured Black Ink Cartridge for HP 56

    Q:

    I have an HP Photosmart 2610 All-in-One printer. I have been very pleased with the quality of the LD cartridges ordered to date. However, When I replaced the black cartridge with one from my last order, it would not align. I tried another LD cartridge received in the same order and that worked fine. Does that mean the LD cartridge that would not align is defective? Is there a guarantee on the cartridges?

    Q:

    I have a hp office jet 6600 that quit printing and I get a message telling me to turn the printer off and then restart it

    HP Photo Smart printers. I had a few minor problems

    It will not restart. Can you help me? I refuse to cave to HP by buying their ridiculous prices for replacement ink cartridges. It is almost as cheap to just buy a new printer when the ink is exhausted.

    • A:

      HP can be tricky to work with! If you haven’t already, I would try unplugging the printer from the power source for 1 minute and then plug it back in to start over. If this does not help, please give our customer service a call at 888-321-2552

    Q:

    Since I do not use my printer a lot, if I bought 3 cardridges, would the shelf life be too long and dry out before using?
    Asked on 10/13/2014 by Whip from Deer Park, TX, USA

    1 answer

    • A:

      The shelf life for these cartridges is 12-18 months; however, we recommend that you purchase cartridges that you will use within one year, as this is the extent of our warranty.

The only reason I am rating this product so low is because the cartridge I received in November, 2012 had a use by date of April, 2012. The cartridge works and the ink seems fine, just poor quality control.

Comments about Remanufactured Black Ink Cartridge for HP 56:

It seems well made. I like the package, it looks like a new product, not remanufactured. I had problems about four days after I installed. The printer didn't identify the cartridge and refused to print. I called technical support at your office and the ship me a new one and it has been printing w/o any problem. I am happy with the product and it seems to me that it is the best re manufactured cartridges that I have bought.
