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.

Alternative Items



Works great. Hated how Epson made me buy paper with the ink.



defective for use in this machine


red is not working at all, despite multiple cleanings.





Most of them worked fine, however one of the cartridges was unable to be read by my printer. Not sure why, the rest of them worked fine.



I will buy again


Great fast service. Works as expected.





The service is fast. And I'm please with the ink. But every once in awhile I get one that doesn't seem to last very long.

Don't have one





The pictures I print turn out very nice. But it sometimes like I don't get as many as I did from another cartridge. I do Not buy ink from anyone but you. The price us right and so are the results. Susan Ogle

Don't have one



I will buy this again.


I have purchased several of the Epson kits that come with paper for my Picturemate Charm, but couldn't get more than 20-30 prints before the cartridge would stop working. Since I had plenty of paper but no ink, I bought these to try before just giving up on this printer all together. I've printed over 100 photos using the 123inkjets cartridge with no problems.


Louisville, KY


Excellent pproduct, very good service


This cartridge revived my printer which was printing far off color. Online ordering was very easy and I received the item 3 days after placing the order.


Tucson, AZ.


Cannot use the ink.


I purchased two of these refills for the Epson PictureMate 240 printers. I put one in the printer and, after cleaning the head, got only black and yellow on the test print. After cleaning the head a half dozen times, I still only get the yellow and black test print. I'm hesitant to try, and waste, the second printer ink package. I'm considering returning the shipment. I have satisfactorily used other products from 123 Inkjet in the past.


Northeastern New Mexico


Can't tell the difference.


Everywhere I looked, Epson forced a more expensive purchase because it includes paper, which I don't need. Haven't used the 123 cartridge very much but my first impression is that it's just as good as the Epson.
