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.

I've been buying my ink from databazaar.com for years. They've really gone down hill, product and customer service. So I searched for a new company to buy from. My ink had expired. There is NO expiration date on the ink from databazaar.com. When I put it in my printer about 11 months after buying it (bought 2 sets) it wouldn't work. Expired. No expiration date on packaging or the cart. it's self. Customer service ordeal was a nightmare that lasted over a month. No more!
I haven't had a need to use the new ink from 123ink but seeing no expiration date, I called their tech support to inquire. There is a ONE YEAR WARRANTY on the cartridges. He said if it doesn't work, they'll exchange it. Works for me! I can't give the product a 5 since I haven't used it yet except for a test print page.

I used to love these ink cartridges and didn't have any issues with them. Over time it seems that the print quality as well as the number of pages I get out of each cartridge has reduced dramatically. Out of the 4 ink cartridges I purchased last time, I got around 30-40 pages out of them before I got the low ink warning and they will no longer print. The ink also started streaking to the point where you could barely make out what was printed after the first 5 pages for each color. It was a total waste to print anything because there were so many streaks and white lines throughout the page. I am very disappointed with the recent quality of these inks. I primarily use my printer to print coupons to feed my family of 5 and it was a waste of time to use my printer with this ink because over half of my coupons were illegible as half the coupon couldn't be seen through the streaks.

Comments about Bulk Set of 4 Remanufactured Ink Cartridges for HP 940XL: 1 Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow:

HP detects that it is not their's but otherwise it is OK.
It took a while for the printer to set itself up and a few other actions to get it to print satisfactorily.
Not the fault of the new ink but of the printer quality.

        The cyan cartridge didn't work. Then, they shipped me a new one and required me to return the bad one or they would charge me for it! And the included form was quite complicated. Shouldn't you be organized enough to just include a packing slip rather than waste my time filling out a form then having to go to a post office? I will not be using 123inkjets ever again.
