OEM (brand name) cartridges are provided by the manufacturer of the printer, such as HP, Dell or Brother. Pricing for brand name cartridges is frequently much higher than for non-brand cartridges, typically ranging from 2–5 times higher.
Compatible cartridges are made from brand new components, provided by a non-OEM manufacturer.
Remanufactured cartridges are refurbished OEM cartridges that have been inspected, repaired, cleaned and refilled. These cartridges may also have new replacement components added in order to ensure the quality of the product, and they are provided by a non-OEM manufacturer.
Compatible and remanufactured cartridges both have color and page yield comparable to the brand name product at typically much lower cost, and are backed by our 6-month quality guarantee and 1 year defect warranty.
