Ratings & Reviews+

HP 78A LaserJet Toner Cartridge is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from correct print settings used 12A for many years on 3020 and got good cartidge life. purchased new M1530 MFP using this cartidge...went thru and changed print settings to 600 dpi. Left at default 1200 dpi, cartridge would go quicklly.. but with old 12A in 3020 setting was 600 dpi for satisfactory printing for business use. all those that decry the low volume from this cartidge need to go and change print settings...that is almost as easy and loading this cartridege in the printer

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from HP you disappoint me HP1536mfp is an excellant product but to only need the 78A toner is ridiculous. I wish the other reviews was available before I purchased in April, 2011. I have paid for my printer twice in toner. HP needs to go back to the drawing board and come up with a BETTER product or at least a product that produces what is says and exceeds like more toners do. I am lucky if I get 1500 copies. I just buy two at a time, so there is a small savings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from poor quantity. I was rather surprised and disappointed at how quickly I have to replace this cartridge! I have used other HP cartridges and have been very pleased with both the quantity and quality of the printing. The quality is great - but it sure lacks in quantity - thought I had a low volume cartridge rather than a regular one. Come on, HP - why are you skimping on the quantity of print pages on this cartridge!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right Product, great price, awesome service I am not going to review the product since it is the only one my printer would take. HP Printer, HP cartridges:) However, what I am recommending is Walmart.com I compared these cartridges price with other "office supplies" stores and the different in price is huge. I saved $30 buying two at the time. I placed my order on a Tuesday morning, choose free shipping (5-10 days), thinking I was not in a rush to received them, and they showed up on my step on Wednesday afternoon!!! I was skeptical with Walmart.com. From now on, it is going to be my first stop for anything I need to buy online, who knows? I might find it there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Erases savings gained with printer I read printer mfgs. made their money on cartridges. This is my first experience of running thru a toner so quickly. I've used HP for years. Great machines! This will be an expensive unit to maintain if the cartridge empties so quickly.
