Amazon requested a review, so here it is
on 13 September 2012
Amazon have asked for a review of my purchase of a toner cartridge, so here it is.
Fast delivery in a Russian Doll type of package, as inside the brown outer cardboard box was a blue inner cardboard box and then, inside there a bag, and finally the cartridge.
It arrived quickly and in excellent condition, but I was soon going to change that!! Straight in to the printer and off we go.....printing like mad I soon used up all the black toner in there, but was it time for another one? NO! Off with the cap on the end and in with more toner and away I go again. You also need to reset the gear on the end, just remove two screws, take the gear off (it nearly falls off) and turn it 180 degrees, so the "flag" (long bit) is towards the bottom of the cartridge when looking at it in the machine. SOMETIMES when you pop it back in it gets all confused and you have to do it again....
You can re-fill these about 20 times before the quality suffers, and they start leaving areas unprinted in lines on the prints, which can be cured sometimes by hitting the cartridge (out of the machine).
My advice, don't by fakes, get a real one, get toner off the net and re-fill them.
This cartridge is good for around 1000 sides, maybe just a little bit more.
