These cartridges are getting harder to find since they are for an older printer. O's price was cheaper than the local option. Same item, works well. It's all good!
I have an HP printer and have bought only HP toner for it. I've heard good and bad from people who've bought off-brand toners instead, and I use mine for business, so I don't want to take any chances. I'm not sure I really get 1500 pages from a cartridge (who actually counts?)--I might--, but I do always take it out of the machine near the end of its life when I see the print getting too light and rock it back and forth a number of times to more evenly redistribute the contents. That simple action easily buys me another 100 to 150+ copies. The cartridges are rather expensive (and the price varies considerably depending on where you purchase them), so I buy them online in two-packs to save money. All in all, the toner is a good product, and I know I have the real HP behind them should there ever be a concern or a problem.
Having used dell and HP these brother color printers and toners are great. Hated changing out an HP cartridge that still felt fairly full. These have a noticeable weight difference when empty and haven't gummed up like the Dell's.
Bought 3 of these am only on the second one, purchased almost a year ago and I work from home so I do use my printer all the time. Never messes up alway let's me know when almost empty and my hp printer is eight year old and still going.
