The OEM one is Guaranteed to work with the printer

The other may not work.

The OEM one is Guaranteed to be the correct colour and that includes Black the other is not so if you use one it may not work correctly or may not be the correct colour.

The other thing is if something goes wrong with the printer and you have to return it to the Makers Agent if you are not using OEM Cartridges they may claim it is the cartridge which has damaged the printer and wipe any Warranty and leave you with a nonworking printer.

Maybe not so much of an issue with a $50.00 throw away printer but a real concern if it is something like a Image Runner Office Photocopier sold by Cannon for several thousand Dollars.
