Kinds of Laser Toner Cartridges include the following:

OEM (original equipment manufacturer) laser toner cartridges

OEM laser toner cartridges are made by printer manufacturers and designed to work only with specific brands and models. They are usually provided with brand new laser printers.

Compatible laser toner cartridges

Compatible laser toner cartridges are made by third-party manufacturers using brand new OEM parts. They are designed to meet quality standards for OEM cartridges while maintaining a lower cost. They are specifically made for certain laser printer brands.

Remanufactured laser toner cartridges

Remanufactured laser toner cartridges are made from recycled cartridge parts, which are professionally cleaned and assembled. They are filled with new laser toner ink after reconstruction. They are cheaper than OEM and compatible cartridges, but are less reliable.

Choosing Laser Toner Cartridges (Buying tips)

Physical condition: If you are buying a remanufactured cartridge, make sure it is sealed well and all the parts are intact. It should not have cracks or dents, as these are signs of poor assembly.

Quality: If you want superior printing quality regardless of the price, choose an OEM laser toner cartridge.
