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 order several of these cartridges at a time. I've never had any problem with the quality. They even enclose a UPS label to return your used cartridge for recycling at no charge to you. I'm very pleased with our choice of printers and cartridge refills.
