Inkjet cartridges contain liquid ink and spray them onto paper from inkjet printers. They consist of one or more ink cartridges and a set of tiny nozzles, which eject ink in uniform droplets. A basic inkjet printer has one black and one colored ink cartridge. The black cartridge contains only one reservoir for the black ink, while the colored one has three reservoirs holding cyan, magenta, and yellow ink. Most ink cartridges can be refilled, although manufacturers usually recommend replacing the cartridge to prevent damage to the printer.
OEM inkjet cartridges are produced by printer manufacturers to be used only with their printer brands and models. They usually come with brand new inkjet printers.
Remanufactured inkjet cartridges
Remanufactured inkjet cartridges are made by professional third-party manufacturers. They are made from recycled inkjet cartridge parts and filled with ink after reconstruction.
Choosing Inkjet Cartridges (Buying tips)
Print quality: If you want the best printing quality your printer can offer, choose an OEM inkjet cartridge. If you are on a budget, choose a remanufactured inkjet cartridge, but make sure it is well made with no holes or cracks.
