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.

At first it seemed they weren't the right replacement since I couldn't easily slide them in. I called the help number and the secret is you have to push fairly hard to insert them. The person explained that to avoid patent infringement their generic has to differ in design from the Brother brand.

Also the black high capacity is not "fat" like the original but it fits in the slot with a firm push and the help line person says it has the same amount of ink.

Had much difficulty for these to operate in my Brother MFC-J885. It took 2 hours to get these to work. I only needed to install the black cartridge because the original Brother color cartridges still to had ink in them. Would not recognize the black cartridge. Then I started to swap out all cartridges. Only one would work. Went back to installing the 3 original color cartridges and then the machine did not recognize 2 out of the 3. Finally after re-installing your cartridges and original cartridges, the machine did recognize all your cartridges. I just may have tricked the memory of the machine. However I needed to open both black cartridges to get one to work. This leaves me with one open black cartridge that does not work. Hence the 2 star rating. I have purchased with you in the past for my Epson machine but since retired it due to incompatibility. I will think twice before I place an order for new cartridges.

Comments about Bulk Set of 9 Ink Cartridges for Brother LC203:

So it took a few tries to get my printer to recognize the ink, but the reason I give 3 stars is actually because when it first arrived and I opened my magenta it exploded all over and I lost half the product. I didn't do anything to instigate it either. I followed instructions to pull the tab off, and it just sprayed. I am not sure if it may have been because it was in a hot delivery truck and expanded? But in any case I sent an email to the company, no one ever got back to me.
