Purchased this for my hp printer and it works fine in it.
The first two "aftermarket" cartridges were both horrible (one left black smears on its first 200 or so pages despite my doing everything I could to get rid of them, and yes, I did call the vendor who was not helpful), and the second one simply leaked a ton of its toner into the printer (and it took me a week to clean it up).However, I needed to do some very high volume printing (special project), and the cost of the high-capacity HP was a bit steep (about 5 times what these two cost).
The only differences were that (a) the magnified images were slightly more granular, and (b) a small section (about 1.5" by 0.5") appeared to be slightly lighter (more gray-ish) than the HP.So I repeated this page using both cartridges at 6 and 7 point type and they were very close to identical (looking at about 30 points on the page I spotted only ONE minor difference, and this time it was the HP which had the minor glitch, a small extraneous dot of black.
If the cartridge is supposed to be a drop-in replacement for the HP, it should literally be that - and should show the same performance - and the sane problems as the HP, no more and no less.I will continue to buy the LD cartridges in the future and I will recommend them to friends, family, and co-workers.
[SO I HELD THIS REVIEW UNTIL I HAD PRINTED MORE THAN 1,000 PAGES WITH THIS CARTRIDGE AND AM CONTINING A FEW DAYS AFTER THE EARLIER PORTION OF THE REVIEW WAS WRITTEN]After printing 2 large manuals (about 1050 pages) with this cartridge, it is still holding up nicely and I am seeing no obvious degradation in its output.So if I see any in the future - or if it prints substantially fewer pages than the equivalent HP 80A cartridges (they're rated for approximately 2,700 pages and I typically get about 2,850 from them, so that's what I'm expecting from the LD, but I wouldn't consider it to be a problem unless I get a lot fewer than 2700 from it).
I have bought LD Products before and have worked for me good.
I use the printer at home and I can't have a printer leaking toner all over the place.
Did not work.
Printed a full black page, I tried to shake it and install again, still same.
