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.

This is my second...or perhaps my third?....purchase and I have yet to be disappointed. The cartridge(s) seem to last just as long, if not longer, than the high priced name brands and the quality is darn near just as good too. The ONLY downside to buying these rather than buying from Dell is that MY Dell Photo 924 printer does not acknowledge their existence once they are installed....so keeping tabs on the amount of ink left in the cartridge is more or less a guessing game....until ya completely run outta ink, that is :-)

The cartridges work just fine in the Dell 946 printer that I originally purchased them to be used in. However, another Dell printer I have - a 964 model - supposedly would use these same size cartridges and I have problems with this second printer recognizing both the black and color cartridges that I just purchased. Not sure if it is a problem with the printer that makes only Dell-manufactured cartridges work; unfortunately that is a pricey test to have to do, so since this second printer was a gift, I'll probably just free-cycle it, but I wish these cartridges would work in this Dell 964 printer, too - your website says they should work in this model as well.

It was a great value but it printed just a few pages and now it looks like it is running out of ink. The letters are really light. I maybe printed 3 or 4 pages before it went light.

I always do my shopping at the local Wal-Mart and they do have pretty reasonable prices but, I discovered Simply Ink online and Ink cartridges there are cheaper than Wal-Mart. Thanks Simply Ink you have another customer.

I would normally in the past ordered the ink from dell. I found out about your company and have never ordered ink from dell since then. I think your overall value is good and as long as it continues to be that way i will order from your company. THANKYOU
