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.

came quickly, worked perfectly


Have had bad luck with "compatible" Epson PictureMate cartridges in the past. They did not fit well and the printer refuses to recognize the cartridges. Did not want to go to OEM because of cost and I did not need the included paper. Couldn't find remanufactured. This compatible cartridge not only fit perfectly, but it worked perfectly. I called before order to check that it could be returned if it didn't work satisfactorily. No problem.




poor print quality


some pictures all green, some un-true color reproduction

Not recommended for use for party!


I ordered this for a Bar MItzvah using my own photo printer. I thought that I could save a few bucks buying a generic cartridge for the event, but alot of the pictures came out very streaky and discolored. I usually an get about 100 pictures from the real Epson cartridge but did not get anywhere close. I am am big fan of generic cartridges for my regular everyday printer, but for a special event that I need to rely on getting perfect pictures, I would not recommend generic.




great price


Looking forward to using it. I didn't have to buy the picture paper along with it because the ink would always run out before the paper. I have 2 packs of paper to use before I need more. I'm glad I found a place to buy ink without buying the paper




Didn't work.


I purchased 2 of these cartridges and unfortunately niether worked. Both had one or two colors that didn't print at all, even after cleaning the print heads muliple times and printing test pages. :-(.




it does not work in my picturemate.


The picturemate will not recognize this ink cartridge. I would send it back but I only paid 10.00 for the product , not worth the postage. Disappointed.




Great bang for the buck!


I bought the OEM versions for my EPSON picturemate printer and they always send you another box of picture paper. Well I had plenty left over and really did not want to buy a cartridge with another box of paper, (paper overload). I got the cartridge and installed it and it took a few cleanings of the head and got it to produce a good picture print. Great value and no paper overload.

BAD Choice--go with the Real Thing!!


I used the compatible product for my Epson Personal Photo Printer Deluxe for many times, but then started having trouble with the ink cartridges. The colors weren't as vibrant and the ink ports would clog and I had to run the clean system multiple times and often still could not get a good photo. I have gone back to the REAL Epson product and it is worth the money.

Great price


I gave a 5 star rating even though I had to use the first cartridge to thoroughly clean the heads on the Epson Picture Printer. After that the quality of the pictures is very good and I am pleased so far with your ink.
