									  Ink Cartridges - What Are the Differences
      Between OEM and Compatible?

                                 OEM cartridge stands for original equipment manufacturer
                                 cartridge. An OEM cartridges are original cartridges
                                 manufactured by the original brand manufacturer. An OEM
                                 cartridge comes in almost all the brands like HP, Dell,
                                 Canon, Lexmark, Epson, Brother, etc. The printing quality of
                                 these cartridges is the best as they are the original ones
                                 manufactured under their brand names.

                                  A compatible cartridge, on the other hand, is the one which is
                                  not manufactured by the original manufacturer. These
                                  cartridges may be remanufactured ones or new cartridge.
They work the same way as original cartridges. Their quality of print is the same or even
better than the original cartridge. The special feature of these cartridges is that they are priced
at relatively lower prices and that the reason these cartridges have become popular among
consumers. Buying compatible cartridge can be very much advantageous than buying
Original Equipment Manufacturer cartridge.

OEM ink & toner cartridges are priced normally. On the other hand, compatible ink & toner
cartridges are priced at almost one-third of half the price of the original cartridge. Purchasing
compatible cartridge is much cheaper than purchasing an OEM cartridge. This makes you
save money which you can spend on buying an additional compatible ink cartridge.

The cartridges that we buy should be well compatible with the printer you have. Almost all
the printers are compatible to these cartridges. There are very few printers which are not
compatible with these cartridges. If the cartridge is not compatible to the printer, then you
may run into loss as the cartridge you purchased will not work with your printer and will go
into waste. While, on the other hand, OEM cartridge is also
compatible to all the printers.

As it is said, recycle and remanufacture in order to make the
environment safe. Compatible cartridges are remanufactured
cartridges which does not let the used cartridges go into waste
and re-uses it thereby, adding to the healthy environment. By
purchasing compatible ink or toner cartridge, we help reduce
the amount of solid waste getting disposed off into landfills.

Compatible ink and toner cartridges print an equal or even
more number of pages than OEM cartridges. This happens
because most of the time, OEM cartridge is not filled to capacity. Compatible cartridges,
therefore, offers the customer a two-fold advantage, both reducing the cost per page and per
cartridge.
Compatible cartridges do not void the warranty of your printer. Most of the consumers are
under the impression that using compatible cartridges would void the warranty of the
computer. Although this is not true..... Using compatible cartridges never voids the warranty
of your printer.

Many of the retailers or superstores offer various discounts and discount coupons on
compatible toner & ink cartridges. As this compatible toner & ink cartridges are not
manufactured by the original manufacturer, it is offered on a range of discounts by the
retailers and other superstores. The original OEM cartridges do not necessarily be on sale for
discounts. The Original cartridges are manufactured by the original brand name which is
expensive. So, OEM toner & ink cartridges may or may not be with discounts.

Original cartridges are manufactured by their original manufacturers. So they would be
available readily with their brand manufacturers while compatible cartridges are
manufactured by other manufacturers, so they would be available with other retailers and
superstores.
