5.0 out of 5 stars Put away your fears it is safe to proceed., 3 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Q5949A HP 49A - Toner cartridge - 1 x black - 2500 pages (Office Product)
WARNING: IT WORKS, BUT YOU DO NOT RECEIVE THE SAME MODEL SHOWN IN THE PICTURE. I received a third-party "remac."

If like me you were suspicious of becoming the latest victim of some eastern sourced scam that's not worth the hassle of claiming your £5.80 back from, then I suggest you order (perhaps even a few) and get ready to smile, or possibly burst out laughing for the bargain of the year.

It works - qualification. First 10 pages or so smudge badly. Not a problem in my opinion.
Clear as a bell afterwards.
The print output is heavier/darker than the HP original. Not a problem in my opinion.

The unit is not the same shape cartridge as an original 49A for the HP 1300, but this does fit the housing exactly and performs exactly to my requirements.

You may have your own experience of being "bumped" online by inaccurate or just plain fraudulent descriptors, but providing you understand the following items there is no problem with this purchase in my opinion.
This is a refilled, third-party remanufactured cartridge built to meet the specification of the HP Laserjet originals.
Refilling originals usually comes to about £15 per time.
Buying brand new original HP equipment costs upwards of £65 retail and therefore the savings posted are genuinely above 90% when compared on this basis.

The units arrive well-packed and sealed like a new unit would do.
As a business user I have found no major fault or impediment with the units.

Feel free to watch this space and of course other reviews for reports of any long term issues.
My experience to date, printing a few hundred pages, has been an entirely pain free one. At £5.80 (yes less than six quid) with free delivery, it is so cheap it's daft.
