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.

The first time I opened the inks, they would not work or no print was coming out. I thought I got ripped off! I tried the second one and then the third. The third one worked great so I assumed it was faulty others, and called customer service. They were helpful and when I got the replacements, they were fine. On my second shipment, the same thing happened, BUT I kind of shook the cartridge down (like you would an old thermometer) - BE CAREFUL!!! I got red ink SPLATTERED everywhere! It cleaned up nice, but that was the issue. So when you get them, if they don't print at first, tap the ink down...gently!!!!

The ink sent does not work, I called after the last 2 we had did not work. I told the sales rep that the past cartridge we have says all the letters on it which is the ink that does not work. That was sent to us again and again does not work. We need an ink cartridge for the Pitney Bowes Mailstation2 K7M0

      These cartridges work just as well and for just as long as the Pitney Bowes brand, but at a fraction of the cost. I highly recommend them.

      Great alternative to the OEM cartridge

      Comments about Compatible Replacement for Pitney Bowes 797-Q Fluorescent Red Ink for the MailStation 2:

      This is the second cartridge I've bought from LD Products and they have both worked perfectly in my Mail Station 2 and they are way cheaper here than the OEM one from PB. I'd get this one!

      I've found that my MS 2 tells me that the ink cartridge is empty before it actually is. When it does that I just take the cartridge out and put it back in and let the machine go through it's routine. The last time I did this the cartridge lasted for another month or so.

      The "compatibale ink cartridge for the Mailstation 2, didn not work in my machine. I had to return. I do have to say that i have tried 3 other compatible brands and none worked. I had to pay the $55.00 for the Pitney Bowes official ink cartridge.
