Remanufactured Cartridges vs. Compatible Cartridges

Mainly there are 3 types of printer cartridges – OEM, Compatible and Remanufactured. One of the 1st cartridges to hit the market bearing brand names was the OEM ones. They are costly and standardized. But many customers want cartridges which are specially manufactured to meet certain requirements and exceed beyond the OEM ones.

These are the compatible ones. They are customized to meet specific client needs and hence are not branded like Exxon, Canon etc. they are manufactured by third parties and not the actual manufacturers. They can either be 100% compatible or less. If the cartridge is 100% compatible, it will be able to function with any kind of printer. This means that 100% compatible cartridge is recognized by any printer and hence will function smoothly.

But if the cartridge is not 100% compatible cartridge, then some printers may not be able to recognize it and functioning might be hampered. That is the main problem with compatible cartridges and faced by many customers. Hence, they are not really the first choice by most people. Compatible cartridges are usually more expensive than either OEM or remanufactured ones.

The main difference between compatible and remanufactured is that compatible is made by assembling new parts where as re manufactured is made by using the already serviced parts. Remanufactured cartridges uses already serviced parts but go through a battery of tests which ensures supreme quality!

Remanufactured cartridges have a fantastic combination of price and quality. Just because it is cheaper, that does not mean they compromise on quality. Quality is supreme but at affordable prices – which is what is most attractive for all customers!
