I use my printer primary for teaching lessons at my church. I prepare lessonsfor Prime timers whose eye sight isn't the best and I'm pleased that the quality of print is very good. I find putting ink cartridges in is very easy. Forme being retired with income being cut when I retired the cost of [$] isquite steep. I noticed the email I just got from staples the price is less now but having just brought the toner I'm not in a position to purchase at this lower price. Overall I'm pleased with my new printer and I may add I'm pleased by my shopping experience at staples.

Terrible per-page cost

I can't believe that HP is charging just as much for a cartridge rated at 2,000 pages as it has for cartridges for other printers rated at 5,000 or more pages. It's outrageous. Previously, I owned a LaserJet 1200 and before than a LaserJet 4. I always bought either the standard or extended-life cartridges. Even the so-called "economy" cartridges were rated at 3,000 pages. Had I known that this 2,000-page turkey was the only cartridge available for the P1606dn, I never would have purchased the printer. Anyone want to buy a slightly-used P1606dn?

        Comments about HP 78A Black Toner Cartridge (CE278A):

        I used coupon that I have received from Staples. Order delivery to my house on time and Product is OK. Manage save some money due to the coupon. Thanks for the great prices. It is a good marketing approach from Staples sending coupon to the customer so they can used it for their purchase. I am always waiting for this coupon to do my next purchase and this way I am able to buy items from Staples as well as saving some money. One will be the best way to use the coupon if there will be no restriction on the coupon so we can use it on any things.

        Comments about HP 78A Black Toner Cartridge (CE278A):

        We are very happy with this product. We never have smudging with this product. The toner seems to last for a long time, unlike some off brands that promise a lot and produce a little.

        Genuine HP Toner

        By ABSully

        from Saint Petersburg, FL

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about HP 78A Black Toner Cartridge (CE278A):

        We have found this product to be reliable and cost efficient compared to other brands of toner. We have several HP printers and 3 that are not HP. We have found the HP printers to be very reliable mechanically, cost effective to operate, and dependable for producing quality printing. We only buy HP printers any more and only use genuine HP toner. We used to purchase remanufactured toner but found that it did not adhere as well as the genuine HP toner and we prefer to have a reliable product when printing documents that will go to our clients.

        We purchase all of our toner through Staples. We have found them to be competitive in pricing including price matching their competition. On the rare occassion that we have had a problem with a toner cartridge not operating properly, even if half the toner had been used when it failed, Staples has always stood behind the products they sell. They have replaced the partially used defective product with a new cartridge free of charge. Between free delivery and excellent customer support, why go anywhere else?
