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.

Image, Image, Image.... I have been a customer of yours for many years as my part time position, Accurate Tax & Acctg. Svc.. I have always been very satisfied with your product. Recently I loaned one of your recently received T078120 Black cartridges to a business associate of mine - Supreme Auto Body. The cartridge which I loaned him was in a very attractive LD box, clearly reflecting color and number of cartridge. What was delivered to him was a box containing little pink plastic poaches, unable to clearly read the color of the ink inside. Very unprofessional!! You spent many years in developing your product and reputation, now totally cheapening it with this very low image presentation!! I doubt very much if you get a reorder from him! Can't blame him as I can't even readily see the color of ink thru this pink container. Being a retired cost acccountant, I can't believe the savings is worth the effort!! Respectfully, Ron Gaulke

Works with Epson Artisan 50

By Jay

Comments about Bulk Set of 6 Remanufactured Ink Cartridges for Epson T078: 1 Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, Light Magenta:

Fast shipping and ink worked right out of the box in my Epson Artisan 50. I read reviews about the labels being so think that the cartridges don't fit if you use more than one. I am using 5 of the 6 colors and it's a little more snug than normal, but a non-issue in my printer. This was my first time using 123inkjets and I will use them again.

Good as New

Comments about Remanufactured Epson T078120 (T0781) Black Ink Cartridge:

I do a lot of black on white printing, so I use up the black ink pretty quickly. I find it very cost effective to use the 123InkJets cartridges. The ink does not smudge or run; you cannot tell from the printed sheet whether it is new or recycled. I have been buying ink from them for a lot of years and would recommend their product to anyone.

This ink is made in China. All the other color cartridge I ordered were remanufactured in the USA. This fact was not specified in the website. However, I have not had a chance to test the quality yet.

product too thick

By Easystreet

from Ligonier, PA

Site Member

Comments about Remanufactured Epson T078120 (T0781) Black Ink Cartridge:

The remanufactured cartridge had a thick label that makes installation and recognition by a six ink printer difficult. If I install six of these cartridges in my Epson Rx 680, frequently it is a force fit and often the cartridges are not recognized but the printer.

Is 123inkjet a division of LD Products? That appears to be the case. I had stopped buying from LD because of the above mentioned issue. This will make me think twice about 123Inkjets.

Comments about Bulk Set of 6 Remanufactured Ink Cartridges for Epson T078: 1 Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, Light Magenta:

It remains to be seen whether the cartridges will have the longevity to warrant spending $41 a pop for them. That's the problem with printers today. They are designed to be thrown away because the cartridges cost more over time than the printer.
