    Q:

    Are these refurbished?

    I'm not sure what the difference is between OEM and Compatible cartridges is so I'm asking are the compatible cartiridges refurbished and the OEM new? Do they both contain the same amount of ink?

    Thanks
    Asked on 1/31/2015 by TOK from Houston

    1 answer

    • A:

      There really is no difference besides the great price you get on the Compatible PGI-225BK cartridge! These are 100% new cartridges that we have manufactured. They contain the same amount of ink, sometimes a bit more, than the OEM cartridges you purchase from Canon. All of our cartridges come with a two year guarantee!

    Q:

    Can we refill ink into these cartridges

    are these ink cartridges refillable ?.
    Will the chip reset itself if we refill ink ?
    Does LD offer ink refill kits for canon Pixma Mg5320 ( CLI 226 M, c, Y BK and PGI 225 BK)
    Asked on 12/11/2014 by ara from NJ

    1 answer

    • A:

      You can refill certain cartridges, unfortunately the CLI226 and PGI225 series cannot be refilled and we do not have a refill kit for these cartridges. The problem for this particular item is the chip, once it reads empty it can no longer be used. However, if you purchase our compatible cartridges for this model, the chips are set to show the correct ink levels!

      We have not tested the cartridges in that low of a temperature before, but it sounds like a great experiment! They should be just fine; if you are willing to try then we would be happy to set this order up for you. Please call in at 888-321-2552 and you can ask for me, Shoshana. We would guarantee this cartridges if this does not work out and would love to track the progress!

      The bulk set is bundled packaged so there is no way for us to change what is inside. There are quantity discounts available when you buy cartridges individually however, depending on how many you're needing of each.

I run a small business from home and go through a lot of ink printing greeting cards. Canon's ink is expensive so I tried this ink because it was easier on my budget and I read good reviews on it. I thought it was a great deal. I was wrong. There was a problem with every single card I printed. The blue cartridge was clogged after 4 prints and the whole cartridge went to waste. I wasted 10 sheets of cardstock because the black ink kept leaking all over the place. Now I have to take the cartridge out, blot it with a tissue, then put it back in before I print something so that it prints without leaking. I know it's not my printer because I never had a problem when using Canon's ink. These printing problems only occured when I started using this cheap ink. You really do get what you pay for. I prefer quality over quantity and would rather spend more money for Canon's ink. I'll never use this ink again! I absolutely do not recommend.

Comments about PGI225 & CLI226 Set of 14 Ink cartridges for Canon:

I love using this product. The ink is in see-through cartridges so I don't have to replace them as soon as my computer tells me that the ink is running low. Not only are these cartridges priced low, I get to use the ink until it is completely used up, which saves me even more money.

Comments about Compatible Canon PGI-225 & CLI-226: 1 Pigment Bk PGI-225 & 1 Each of CLI-226 (Bk, C, M, Y) Ink:

Ours is a seldom used home printer. Until now I have only purchased Canon brand cartridges but they are so expensive and the ink often dries up before it is used up. I have only printed 2-3 times with these cartridges and the ink quality looks fine. I also like the fact that I haven't gotten a message that they aren't brand name cartridges. I have experienced that at work, and tried these in part based on other customers' reviews saying this won't happen.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
