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.

Despite the instructions to press and hold down the "stop/reset" button, the printer only printed an additional page and a half after holding the button down before it totally locked up and put up a message to power cycle the printer. Holding the "stop/reset" button did nothing at that point. I tried three times and it did the same thing each time. I'm sending it back. I can get a genuine Canon cartridge #CL-241XL# for four dollars more at Walmart. I made this try with remanufactured cartridges but I wasted more time than it was worth.

Comments about Remanufactured CLI-241XL HY Color Ink for Canon:

These two cartridges as well as the cartridges I purchased for my HP were useless...a waste of money as I've had to replace them with brand name cartridges...but I guess you get what you pay for.

Comments about Remanufactured CLI-241XL HY Color Ink for Canon:

Does not work with the Cannon 3600 series as it is suppose to now that they have out sourced to China! Cannon software does not recognize any these cartridges I purchased; thus I just wasted my money on them. There is no customer service to fix this issue!

Comments about Remanufactured CLI-241XL HY Color Ink for Canon:

Worked for a while, then stopped. Printer stopped recognizing it. Had to buy OEM Canon cartridges to work. Called customer service, but they wanted me to jump through hoops, so I just took the loss. Live and learn.

Product didn't work, customer service didn't respond.

Comments about Remanufactured CLI-241XL HY Color Ink for Canon:

Product did not work in my printer. I kept getting an error message that I was out of ink. I tried repeatedly to reset the printer according to manufacturer's instructions, but it never worked. Eventually, I just had to buy new ink from Canon and it immediately began working just fine. I contacted 123inkjets and asked them about a refund but instead, they asked me to write a review of the product, so where we are.
