Naughty or nice this year? Berto checks in with Santa
OEM cartridges are manufactured by the maker of your printer equipment. There are generally three different types of aftermarket cartridges: those that are refilled (only the toner and ink is replaced), compatible (newly built) and remanufactured (where the toner or ink is replaced along with other components that have worn out) cartridges
For more than three decades, printer OEMs and the Aftermarket have not been “playing nicely in the playground” together. The quarrels eventually have led both sides to court in many countries over patent infringement issues and intellectual property rights over the printer cartridge supplies used in the printers.
The OEMs have also used new technologies and firmware upgrades to keep in front but within a short time, the Aftermarket has always responded with workaround solutions.
Not sure what is the difference between OEM and aftermarket printer cartridges? This blog may help you further understand the differences.
