What Brother printers use LC203 ink?

This non-OEM LC203 4-cartridge set works with the Brother MFC-J460DW, MFC-J4620DW, MFC-J480DW, MFC-J485DW, MFC-J680DW, MFC-J880DW, and MFC-J885DW inkjet printer.

It installs and fits just like an original LC203 cartridge.

Can you print with just black ink and no other color ink?

No, all colors need to be installed at all times. Running on just the black cartridge may result in expensive damages to your printer. Inkjet printers are designed to still use some color ink even when printing black and white documents. Forcing your printer to print with empty cartridges can result in overheating and irreversible damages to your printer.

Are these genuine Brother LC203 ink cartridges or a generic ink cartridge?

No, these are non-Brother ink cartridges that are engineered and tested to work with the same printers as LC203 ink. Using aftermarket LC203 cartridges will NOT void your printer warranty. You can also expect to get the same print results and same amount of pages from aftermarket LC203 cartridges.

What kind of ink does a Brother printer use?

The type of ink a Brother printer uses depends on what kind of printer it is. Brother printers are either inkjet or laser. Inkjet printers use ink cartridges which contain either a dye-based or pigment-based formulation. Laser printers use toner cartridges which contain dry toner powder. The LC203 is an ink cartridge series that works on specific Brother inkjet printers.

Can you use LC201BK in place of LC203BK?

Yes, you can use the LC201BK in place of the LC203BK cartridge. LC201 cartridges are standard-sized ink cartridges while the LC203 is its high yield counterpart. High yield cartridges aren't necessarily bigger, they just contain more ink.

That being said, the LC201BK prints 260 pages while the high yield LC203BK prints 500 pages. Same can be said of the other colors in the LC203 series.

High yield cartridges most often than not fit and install in the same slot as the standard cartridge.

Is this ink dye or pigment based?

The Brother LC203 is a part of the Brother Innobella ink cartridge series where the blacks contain pigment-based ink and the color ink cartridges contain dye-based ink. Pigment-based ink is best for long-lasting, fade- and water-resistant prints. Dye-based ink is great for printing vividly colored photos.

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.
