What’s the difference between OEM, Compatible, and Remanufactured?
OEM is an abbreviation for “Original Equipment Manufacturer”. When you see a product described as OEM it is a new “name-brand” cartridge from Canon, Epson, Hewlett Packard, etc. Compatible Cartridge – This is a brand new cartridge made with new plastics and parts. It is designed to meet or exceed the OEM specifications and high standards of quality. It is 100% brand new and economically priced compared to expensive name-brand cartridges. Using compatible generic replacement cartridges will not void your printer warranty. We carry many 100% new compatible imaging supplies: Brother laser/fax cartridges, thermal fax rolls, Media Sciences solid ink and color cartridges for many of the popular color printers. We also have Pitney Bowes, Canon and Brother inkjet cartridges, copier toner, and ribbons. Remanufactured Cartridge – A cartridge that has been recycled to meet or exceed OEM specifications. Most cartridges use a “virgin OEM core” (an OEM cartridge that has not been remanufactured) and
