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 now gone through several black and color remanufactured HP cartridges for my all-in-one 1210 printer...with NO sacrifice in print quality.

These puppies work great and are about 1/2 the price of Walmart or Staples.

Yeah, and no more hassles and botched jobs trying to refill my own.

Finally I can stock up and afford to have an extra laying around for when I run out.

My only regret is that I did not find you guys 5 years ago.

The bottom line: If you are paying full retail or are frustrated trying to refill on your own cartridges... stop wasting your time and money and just buy this product.

You'll be glad you did. Plus you'll get a little smile every time you walk down the printer supplies isle in Walmart knowing that you are no longer paying $40 for an ink cartridge.

This did not work with my HP 5510v although that printer uses an HP 57 cartridge. This replacement caused such major problems that I had to unload the printer & software from my computer & reinstall everything. 123inkjets sent me a replacement cartridge that did the same thing. I bought a brand name HP 57 cartridge at Walmart ($43 - ouch!) & it works fine. 1123inkjets stood by their guarantee & refunded my money. After the headache with the color cartridge I returned the black cartridge too. Other replacement cartridges have worked with my printer. I just don't recommend this brand.

Very pleased with all the products I have received and this one is no different. Very excellent print quality -- if anything it works better than an factory original cartridge. Have had excellent success and except the same with this cartridge.

Comments about Remanufactured Replacement for Hewlett Packard C6657AN (HP 57) Tri-Color Ink Cartridge:

I had been putting off buying colored ink for some time because of the price, found this & for half the cost (was concerned of it being "refurbished", but am pleasantly surprised at the quality) I can't tell the difference between this & "new"

Remanufactured Replacement for HP-Color

By LindaRthatsme

Comments about Remanufactured Replacement for Hewlett Packard C6657AN (HP 57) Tri-Color Ink Cartridge:

This item arrived quickly, but when I took the cartridge from the box there was green ink (about 1/4 teaspoon) inside the see-through plastic bag. I noticed that the protective plastic covering on the end of the cartridge was not affixed tightly and there was no tape covering the end that is normally removed like there was on the black cartridge. I cleaned the cartridge up and tried it out. It works perfectly. I personally didn't think it was a big deal and am still happy with the product.

I chose the 2 day shipping. The product arrive on time and well packaged. It functioned as described so far without any issues not already outlined by the company such as it not being recognized by the printer as full, however after a few days it was and now it appears to be just like new. I personally will do business with this service again.
