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.

HP 42 A

By New Orleans

from New Orleans

Verified Buyer
This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

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

HP Toners on overall perform better than other brands because the genuine HP product tends to last longer than remanufactured brands in my opinion. I have tried other products and feel that you do not get you money's worth as oppose to using the genuine HP product. It is worth a little bit more cost wise because the product will print another thousand sheets; additionally when you are running low you can shake the toner and it will probably last another hundred pages or so. I am very satisfied with this product.
