This cartridge has a print drum integrated in the toner unit. This is why we bought the printer to begin with. Print drums go bad and are expensive. Remanufactured cartridges can have a scratched drum as mine did when received. Was addressed quickly and replaced lightning fast.
PROS: Great price and superb customer service when problem presented.
CONS: This cartridge has a print drum integrated in the toner unit.
Did they change manufacturers? Didn't last as long...
I've bought the fx9/104 for my canon printer for last few years. I've bought at least 5 before and they usually last at least 3 months before I have to buy another one. The most recent toner only last a month before colors faded despite me rocking the toner back and forth. I know I got less than 300 prints on this because I didn't even finish my ream of paper. This might have been a dud.
PROS: Good quality prints. Nice and even printing.

I've purchased this cartridge numerous times and I average 1500 copies with each toner (using a Canon MF 4350d printer). Good bang for the buck.
