Bought the toner at Staples in an emergency situation since our toner ran out. We go through another supplier with much lower prices and get the 42X (not 42A). The 42X has much more toner inside and the 42A is something we will only buy from Staples if we run out and need one ASAP. It will not be a repeat purchase otherwise.

Heavy use toner cartridge

By Dutchman

Verified Buyer

Comments about HP 42A Black Toner Cartridge (Q5942A):

I had to use 7 of these toner cartridges on a recent jobsite. The cartridge suggests that it allows for around 11000 images. I used a little over 1 carton of paper (abt 12 to 13 reams). I printed double-sided, and so the usage held itself to the 11000 promise pretty well.
Be sure, though, to shake the cartridge when the "low" indicator shows, because it generally gave me still some 300 more images.

Also some advise: if you ever need such a large amount of toner cartridges, be sure to let Staples know; it is not that prolific an item. Generally, Staples will have 2 or 3 in stock, so the service people will have to order some in advance.

These catridges just work. No probelms with them. They work all day, every day and they also almost always include a label so you can send back your old cartridge.
