Nothing bad to say. Based on reviews I was prepared for a poor fit with the gears - luckily that wasn't the case. It works fine. The printer gives a warning about the brand when it starts. The original cartridge that came with the printer was busted so I can't compare print quality unfortunately. Text is sharp and consistent, and that's what matters to me. I tried a full page image and it wasn't impressive, but that could be my printer's fault or my fault for using multipurpose paper. I'd buy again or recommend.
I tried it in the printer it was purchased for and there was some gear engagement noise. I tried it in another printer of the same model and it worked perfectly with crisp graphics and text. I took the cartridge from the second printer and placed it in the first with no problems. Conclusion gear design change on printer made interchangeability uncertain.
PROS: Accurate selection process
Always quick service and delivery
CONS: did not fit all of my printers with the same model , but fit a majority of them. I believe that it is a design change from the printer manufacturer.
PROS: This substitute for the HP49X laser/toner cartridge is not only about 25% of the HP price, but I truly believe it gives me more print pages than the HP original. I have been using the Monoprice product for more than 4 years , about 12 cartridges, and the HP warning about using their brand for reliability and quality is just pure fiction. If anything, the Monoprice product is superior in every way, especially not having to deal with HP online! Thank you monoprice!
PROS: This product easily outperforms the Hewlett-Packard original equipment I have used in the past. I honestly believe the lifetime (printed pages) exceeds that of the HP product. Everything associated with my order was painless: order entry, delivery, billing information and my confidence that yours is a company that has its act together. Congratulations!
Ordered two of these because they are a great deal. Unfortunately, they're not so great. The first one we tried completely jammed the printer. The second left black streaks 3 inches apart all the way down the page. Won't order again. Unfortunate since I love MP for so many other things.
