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.

Second one we have purchased, both worked well

Comments about Refurbished Alternative for 330-1199 HY Cyan Toner for Dell 3130cn:

I have been buying multiple cartridges for several Dell color printers from SimplyInk for over a year and so far all have been good/no DOA or excessively leaky cartridges. Print totals tend to match the quantity as advertised pretty closely. Generally the price is lower than other refill vendors. Not quite Dell original quality but they seem to work pretty well.

Comments about Refurbished Alternative for 330-1198 HY Black Toner for Dell 3130cn:

I just installed this cartridge and that was seamless.

Initial print quality is good.

All I am waiting for now is to wait and see if the estimated page counts match the advertised high yield, if so the value mark might go up to excellent - just too soon to tell but based on other carts I have purchased from simplyink I am hopeful it will indeed be a good one.

Initial Installation went perfectly

Comments about Refurbished Alternative for 330-1200 HY Magenta Toner for Dell 3130cn:

I just installed this in a printer at a grade school so not much volume on it yet and too early to tell how it will be long term but encouraged so far.

The cartridge was a simple drop in replacement and the printer recognized it and went though the initial calibration. The initial prints from it looked as good as before using the OEM cart. Am very curious to see how ti performs over 5-9k pages but if like the initial installation it would be an excellent/less expensive alternative. If so, I'll be buying these from here on since the cost savings is significant.

The first toner made horrible squeaking sound when printing, called the number and they sent me another one the next day. No problem ever since. Great price, good quality, good customer service. A+

Minor quality issue

Comments about Refurbished Alternative for 330-1199 HY Cyan Toner for Dell 3130cn:

Good product, but minor quality issue for this new item. Toner does not have sealing tape on the inside of the cartridge which results in a significant amount of toner being spilled during transit. For this reason, toner cartridge almost always runs out of ink before the printer chip indicates a low amount. It's a minor issue I hope will be addressed but overall great product for your cost.
