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.

Thank you for inviting me to write a review.
After placing my order on November 28th, you advised me two days later that my order had been shipped and gave me a tracking number. The tracking indicated a delivery of 3 December.
December 3rd came as did December 4th. At that time, I notified your company that my order had not been received. Your reply was to "check around with neighbors" which was a dumb response or I should "doublecheck with USPS" an even dumber response.
If your sales representative had any initiative, he/she would have looked at the tracking information. It said then and it still says today that the package is in Los Angeles and apparently it has been since November 30. It has obviously been lost by the post office and a little investigation on your part would have made this perfectly clear.
At this point we have two alternatives:
1. Ship my order with overnight delivery (at your expense)
OR
2. Credit my Mastercard for the full amount that I have been billed and cancel my order.
Please advise immediately what you decide. If option 2 is your choice, I will enter my order with another company.
Yours truly,

Comments about Compatible CLI-251XL HY Magenta Ink for Canon:

I have been buying compatible inkjet cartridges from 123inkjets for my Canon printers for about 15 years. I have had absolutely no problem with them. When my printer fails and I buy a new one with a different cartridge, 123inkjets has accepted my old unused cartridges and exchanged them for the cartridges fitting the new printer. I am extremely happy with this company and their practices and recommend them to everyone.

I will not waste money on OEM printer cartridges again.

Comments about Compatible CLI-251XL HY Black Ink for Canon:

This is my fifth purchase of Canon compatible ink from 123inkjets. I have had nothing but good experiences with these off-label products. Documents and photographs are indistinguishable from those produced with Canon branded products, and my printer continues to function flawlessly. I cannot imagine switching to the outrageously over priced OEM ink cartridges when these reasonably priced versions give me exactly the same results.

The ink leaked everywhere

By Chaunce

from Reno, NV

Verified Buyer

Comments about PGI-250XL & CLI-251XL Set of 11 Cartridges for Canon:

I read a review that this ink leaked when it was opened, but I thought that was an isolated incident. Unfortunately it was not and when my mother went to install the ink it leaked all over her and the floor. Once in the printer it was fine, but the fact that we can't get it out of its packaging without making a mess influenced my low review.
