The Differences between OEM to Compatible Cartridges
This type of ink or toner cartridges are made by the original manufacture company, so let’s say if you are using the Brother printer, your ink or toner cartridges will be made by same company, sometimes we refer it to genuine cartridges, usually the price is much more expensive, however the performance is more stable, good for professional printing usage.
Remanufacture Ink/Toner Cartridges
A Remanufaccture toner or ink cartridges is usually a recycle version from the OEM by using the original cartridges case, or the damaged cartridges fixed by the OEM company and disassemble it and refill with the cartridges, sometimes, the original manufacture company just replace the worn or bad-designed part and called it compatible cartridgeds, sometimes the orginal manufacture often drill a hole from the cartridges in order to defficiate the genuine to the remanufacture one so make sure you find the reputable dealer in order to make sure the quality and performance will be okay.
Compatible Toner cartridges:
A compatible toner cartridges, as the same as it named, is often product by a third party manufacture with new design to make it perfectly compatible, it share the similar quality to the OEM ink or toner cartridges, since the price is much cheaper, these type of cartridges is often popular in the market, thus, the genuine usually do recommend their customer only to purchase their own ink/toner cartridges in order to avoid troubles.
The battle between both the OEM ink toner cartridges to the compatible cartridges are still a hot topic in which both stands on its Pro and Con, to my opinion there is nothing better, nothing superior and nothing perfect, there are always exception, people often say it OEM cartridges are much better and less trouble, but in my opinion I have heard and received many cases which due by the OEM cartridges, cartridges is a fragile thing and it can be damaged by many different reason if not handling well, weather, humidity, method of shipping…etc, personally I would go for compatible cartridges, because I don’t like the concept of big brand and I found myself perfectly suitable by spending a $6 bucks ink cartridges rather than the $26.99 one, hopefully this article will be helpful to you, and let me know what you think in our comment.
