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.

In the few years since first ordering from you, I've only had a couple of problems. These have to do with leaking tanks. Approximately four years ago I had a problem with a couple of the colors leaking. You were very prompt about sending replacements. For this I thank you very much. This is why I've stayed with you.
Just recently I had another leaking problem with one black tank. No problem. I figure with the amazing savings ordering from you, and as long as it didn't cause irreversable problems, I'd just eat the loss. Thanks for the prompt shipments and good quality products for the most part. As usual, this last order arrived in short time from the date of order. You are all great.

Happy Thanksgiving and be safe and at peace.

I've now got a problem with my printer head. I've been told it is because I'm not useing the factory ink. Printer is inop and I have a lot of ink I'm not able to use. Can I return the unused ink for replacement on ink I can use? Is it possible that your ink damaged my printer? If so are you able to help me replace my printer? It's a i9100 Canon, it needs a print head now. Can you help?

Ink Cartridges for Canon Pixma iP5000

Comments about i860, iP4000 Set of 5 Ink cartridges for Canon - Great Deal!:

These cartridges did not fit properly into the printer and leaked ink after installation. I put them side by side with an original Canon cartridge and you could see that they are smaller in size and the ink port is oval instead of round, which is probably the reason for the leakage.

Comments about BCI6 Set of 18 ink Cartridges for Canon i9900, iP8500- BEST DEAL!:

Having been a previous customer, years ago there was a change in the cartridge design, and these i9900 inks did not set properly into the printer. Now the cartridges have improved greatly and am having no problems. Also, the inks arrived right on schedule.

I use two printers everyday. One is a cannon i9900, a photo printer and the other is a brother MFP for everyday use. I buy ink for both of the printers from 123inkjets.com and highly recommend them to my friends. You cant beat the price, delivery is fast and the service is awesome.

Comments about i860, iP4000 Set of 11 Ink cartridges for Canon:

I've been using 123inkjets for a few years now, and always come back for more because they work! If they didn't work like original Canon inkjet cartridges, I'd go elsewhere, but I don't have to. 123inkjets is the BEST, at very good prices!

Comments about i860, iP4000 Set of 11 Ink cartridges for Canon:

I installed two inks upon arrival. Print quality - color rendering and density is indistinguishable from OEM cartridges at a fraction of the cost. I will buy again.

Pretty good cartridges, not photo quality on gloss

Comments about Compatible BCI6C Cyan Ink for Canon:

I regularly buy from Simplyink for my Canon i9900. A much cheaper alternative to Canon carts for regular printing on regular letter size paper stock. However, for photo quality on glossy paper, my experience has been that you need real Canon cartridges.
