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 used to buy my ink at a local place that refilled ink cartridges at a much cheaper price than buying them new. My problem was that I was often having to clean my print head and often my printer would think I was out of ink when I just put in a new full cartridge. Since I switched to buying my ink at Simplyink.com I have not had to clean my print head and I've never had any other issues at all. The ink looks great when printing anything, including photos and it isn't more expensive than the other place. It is just better quality.

These ink cartridges have worked well for me in the past. On the latest order however, both the cyan and magenta cartridges that I ordered arrived with their boxes crushed. This occurred because the package the two ink cartridges were shipped in was not padded to protect them. I have not used them yet but when I do, I hope they will work!

This is my second set of these. I used to get enraged when I had to buy ink for my printer because of the price and lack of quality. I think these last just as long, and cost way less, so, at last, I have peace. You can't go wrong.

Comments about Compatible PGI-225 & CLI-226: 1 Pigment Bk PGI-225 & 1 Each of CLI-226 (Bk, C, M, Y, G) Ink for Canon:

I made a mistake and purchased the wrong set. Recieved the ink and ooened one of them to fit it in my printer. Thats when i figured out it was the wrong compatibility. 123inkjets will only refund me for the unopened cartridge. Thats bad customer service. Pure greed. So i sent them back and got a refumd for the unopened one but will never buy from this company again.

Comments about Compatible PGI-225 & CLI-226: 1 Pigment Bk PGI-225 & 1 Each of CLI-226 (Bk, C, M, Y) Ink for Canon:

These cartridges print just as nicely as the more expensive name brand cartridges. I do a lot of everyday printing of recipes, articles, and document files and it saves me a lot of money versus the $60 cartridge packs at the warehouse club. I cant speak for the longevity of the ink or printing on acid free paper, but they work for me for everyday tasks. I do worry about the protective orange caps pulling off part of the rest of the cartridge like a previous bad (and messy) experience with another brand, but these pull up and off instead of twist and I haven't had an issue with them so far. I will say that it bugs me that the plastic tabs to insert the cartridges are a bit thin and do not always snap down into the cartridge slots as tightly as the name brand cartridges. I had one break off slightly from a previous order but it was still usable. I would recommend making the plastic on them a little stronger.
