So you have never removed a toner cartridge and re-balanced the remaining toner "internal grade" so it prints another thousand without any fading?

I have done ONLY manual upgrades on EVERYTHING, including Mozilla and Adobe crap, for years. Since before Vista.

The general rule with HP laser printers is that a set of toner cartriges will cost about as much as the printer. And the printers come with "starter doses", partially filled cartriges. So only buy an HP printer if you intend to use it seldom. Remember when HP had integrity? Well, you may be too young.

PCs? You sort of need one to do electronic design these days.

So what? They are still filled with enough to keep most consumers going for a year (easily, longer even), and a full set of new toner cartridges with the full load gives them new life for even longer. Very reliable physical print engine and transport hardware as well.

You ain't real bright. Brother and many of the others are lame in other areas. Longevity being the main one, and that has nothing to do with the toner cartridge fill level. Doh! The only viable "other good maker" is Xerox.

HP used to be far more than a printer Mfgr. They DO have integrity with what they make right now. Keysight has theirs. You seem to be too stupid to know how or what to measure, so your remarks carry zero credence. But hey... you also think that the Space Shuttle Program produced nothing useful, and are stupid enough to make the same retarded declarations about the ISS. Real scientists who see you spout that horseshit know right where your head is at. Firmly up your ass.

Do not 'need' to sit there with your thumb up your ass, fuddling with one "to make it look like XP" to make use of it though, dumbass. Then, you ask in here about things you then claim that you have someone else make effective. You should have washed that thumb off before sticking it back into your mouth.

And you ain't real polite. If you're going into business for yourself, you'd better learn some manners. People don't do biz with people they don't like. Brother and many of the others are lame in

We got a great new Sharp color digital copier, networked as a printer and scanner. They sell toner by the bucket. It does beautiful color printing, up to B size. We're retiring our big HP 5100 color printer; the cartrige set now costs about $1000.

Is Xerox still in business? I haven't seen a Xerox product in ages.

Is this when I get to say "Doh" ?

One cannot lay a finger upon any member of the bork without getting porked. Oh look.... I dropped my soap... A similar scenario is presumably how you came about ???
