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 replcement ink cartridges from Simply Ink" for years and have never had a compatibilty problem. I've owned 3 different printers, (Brother, Lexmark, HP). Why buy OEM when you can purchase these at 1/3 the price? Save even more and buy in bundles!

This was my first time purchasing from this company. It was also my first time purchasing ink cartridges that were not the Brother brand. All of my ink cartridges needed replaced at the same time so I ordered the black & colored ink package. The colored ink is printing fine. At first, the blank ink printed, but it was kind of streaked and faded. Now I can't get the black ink to print at all. I'm not sure what the problem is. If the cartridges all worked then this would be a good value; however, if the black ink is not going to work at all, then it is a waste of money. My printer is the kind that won't print at all if one color is out so since I can get colored ink to print, it is recognizing that all cartridges contain ink in them. Are there any suggestions on things to try to fix this problem?

Part of the units was ok, but the magenta and black had major problems. My unit is in excellent condition and it tried to make these units work properly, but was unable to do so.

Comments about Compatible LC61M Magenta Ink for Brother:

I use the product in an MFC type fax machine. I expected to get a usable product, however the opposite is true. The black unit was not good, so I had a new unit sent. The second unit was also faulty. It does not show as full on the unit and causes the color to print more green than red. It is my fault, because I was trying to save money on re-manufactured ink units. It did not work for me. Maybe others will have a different experience. I need to use "Original Equipment Manufactured" product to get the quality that I expect.
