If I print a page and then the page gets wet, will the ink stay in place or smudge to the point of making it unreadable?


We recommend allowing some dry time so the ink will not smudge. Dye based cartridges are likely to smudge or smear if on a wet surface.


I just purchased a Brother MFC-J885DW. What do you recommend for best economical ink replacement.


For the MFC-J885DW, you will need the LC203 ink cartridges.


What are the shipping dimensions and weight of the package?


The shipping dimensions of this bulk set are 4.25" W x 5.75" L X 3.5" H and the weight is .87lbs.


Hello. Just want to make sure these cartridges are compatible with my new Brother MFC-J450DW made the last half of this year. I know there have been issues with reset chips for later 2015 model printers. Also the OEM Brother black ink cartridges use "pigment" based ink and NOT "dye" based ink. I have yet to find a compatible cartridge maker that does not fill the black cartridges with "dye" based ink. Do you use "pigment" black ink in this cartridge?? Thank you!


Yes, these compatible LC103 ink cartridges will fit and work with your MFC-J450DW. It contains a smart chip that will work with the recent firmware update. The Black cartridge is pigment based and the Color cartridges are dye based.


What is the ink capacity for the LC103M High Yield cartridge?

no nickname

The ink content is 10 ml.


Do I just press in the new cartridge and the seal breaks? There is no tab on the cartridge like my old printer used. Thanks


The printer will puncture the nozzle upon installation. If you encounter a problem, please contact our customer service team at (888) 321-2552 for assistance. You are backed 100% by our two year warranty.


I just purchased a Brother MFC-J4410DW. The sticker on the front shows it will take LC103 but you do not list this printer in the compatible section. Will these work with this printer?


Yes, these units will work. For the MFC-J4410DW, you may use the LC103 B/C/M/Y, LC105 B/C/M/Y, and LC107 Black ink cartridges.


I purchased this for my MFC-J650DW but the black ink cartridge does not fit. Any suggestions?


The compatible LC103 ink cartridges should fit and work with your MFC-J650DW. If it is not fitting, please check inside the printer for any obstruction. Also verify that the pull tape or any protective covers has been removed prior to installing. If you continue to experience issues, please contact our customer care team at (888) 321-2552.

can i use this with the J280W brother


We have the items you need but these are not the correct ones. If you search for your printer model MFC-J280W you will find the LC75 options. Please call if you have questions 888-321-2552


Dear LD - You list this as compatible with Brother MFC-J780DW but it is not I ordered these because you stated your chips were updated to address the recent Brother firmware updates making it difficult to use after market cartridges. I order a 9 pack set and put the cartridge in and printer will not recognize it. Tried 2 of the 9 and same result. I have to remove the chip from a genuine Brother cartridge and remove the LD chip from the aftermarket and replace it with the Brother chip to get it to work (tape it or glue it). What a hassle. What is actually going on here. Are your chips actually updated at all? Why are mine not working if you state your chips are updated to address this issue?


Brother, as of Jan 2015, began shipping new printers with a new firmware version that our updated chips are not compatible with. We are working very closely with our supplier on manufacturing a new chip that will work with the most recent firmware update from Brother, so we should have the working compatible cartridges very soon. Please call us at (888)321-2552 and one of our friendly agents will be happy to assist you with the cartridges you currently have that are not working.


Are these compatible with all models and firmware for the mfc j870dw? I was previously informed that the new firmware does not work with these cartridges.


Yes, our cartridges are compatible! The chips have been updated to work with the new firmware.


Can you use this ink cartridges for MFC-J870DW?


Yes! The MFC-J870DW uses the LC103 series cartridge.


What is the page yield for your LC103BK compatible Brother ink cartridge?


That's a great question! This cartridge has a page yield of 600, however this is based on a 5% page coverage rate. If you are printing full page documents you will get about half of this yield, if you are printing a paragraph a page you will get closer to 600 pages.

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.
