Name brand cartridges are known as "Original Equipment Manufacturer" or "OEM" cartridges -
These cartridges are manufactured by the manufacturer who manufacturers your printer.
Additionally, you might want to know that name brand manufacturers use the same method of selling their printers that the manufacturers of razor blades use when they sell you razor blades, which is that they sell you the printer at a low cost, and make their profits by charging high prices for the supplies.
What is a Compatible Cartridge?
Compatible Cartridges are also known as "Generic" or "Alternative Brand" cartridges -
These cartridges are manufactured from scratch. However, they are manufactured by third party companies and sold under different brand names. Often compatible cartridges may vary slightly in look, design and page yield to their genuine counterparts due to certain patents that restrict the exact copying of designs.
