OEM and Compatible Toner Cartridges



OEM means Original Equipment manufacturer. The OEM Cartridges manufactured by the original company which is called Original Equipment Manufacturer  who manufactured the printer and same company manufactured the toner cartridges. Example: if HP company manufactured the printer and it also manufactured the toner cartridge to use on that printer.


Compatible Toner is manufactured by the third party to use on the printer which it did not manufacture. So these cartridges are not branded but they are new and works with the other manufactured companies printers. They could be cheaper in price but they are new ones. Some third party companies also use the original cartridges to refil and sell them.
