In our check printing area, we just changed out a MICR toner for the M806 Printer. The MICR quality had finally deteriorated, but the cartridge printed 60,950 pages. This is due to the low coverage on the checks, probably 2.5%. The cartridge is rated for 35,000 pages. The cartridge was a Premium HP CF325X MICR Toner Cartridge on sale at www.advlaser.com for $470.00. While the Premium CF325X MICR is a new cartridge, we are also producing a remanufactured CF325X MICR Toner Cartridge for $230.
We use our MICR toner cartridges daily to print checks for our customers. This gives us an advantage as we are able to monitor our cartridge quality. With every check job we validate our checks with our MICRmate check analyzer to insure each check meets ABA standards.
HP has been keeping us busy with a string of new printer releases. The latest printer from HP is the LaserJet M506 Series. The M506 repalaces the P3015 series. The M506 has both a low yield (CF287A – 9,000 pages) and a high yield (CF287X – 18,000 pages) cartridge. We’ve developed our MICR Variants of these cartridges. The MICR quality is great on these cartridges. Thankfully HP has not made the high yield cartridges only work in certain higher end printers.
HP CF287A MICR Toner Cartridge (9,000 Pages) $280.00
Cost Per Page: 3.11
HP CF287X High Yield MICR Toner Cartridge (18,000 Pages) $390.00
Cost Per Page:2.16
First Impressions – The M506n printer is speedy at 45ppm and a first page out in 7 seconds. The base model comes with both USB and Ethernet connectivity and duplexing is an option. It’s not as sturdy as it’s predecessor the P3015. But the toner cartridges do hold more toner and you’ll benefit from a lower cost per page. One interesting thing about toner toner cartridge is that there is no seal to pull, the printer comes with “Auto seal removal” and pulls the seal for you when you first use the cartridge. This may confuse first time users that are used to pulling a seal. The printer also comes with “improved” print gauge technology. In our tests the printer ran of out toner when the printer gauge said we still had an additional 100 pages to print. That was close enough for us. The 500 sheet input paper tray is welcome. It also has a usb port for printing documents straight off a usb stick (though I’ve never heard of anyone actually doing that). The M506n has a street price of $650. Hp also offers a M506x for $949 that is loaded with an extra paper tray, duplexing and a 4.3″ touch screen. For $949 I’d consider moving to the much sturdier HP LaserJet M605n. We are still on the fence as to sell a M506n MICR Laser Printer. But if you are interested call us and that might help us make our decision.
HP M506n MICR Toner Cartridges are available to ship beginning January 13, 2016.
We’ve just released the HP LaserJet M402n MICR Laser Printer. The M402n replaces the M401n. The printers are very similar. The M402n prints at 40ppm vs. 35ppm and the printer is cream colored, not black. Our M402n MICR Laser Printer comes with a CF226A MICR Toner Cartridge rated at 3,100 pages. A high yield CF226X MICR Toner Cartridge is also available with 9,000 page yield.
The M402n MICR Laser Printer is great for check printing and at 1,200dpi the quality is fantastic and crisp. The 40ppm M401n is very quick and produces a first page out in 8.1 seconds from sleep mode, 5.7 seconds from ready. The M401n has auto on/off technology, so you never have to turn it on. It’s ready when you are.
The HP M402 550 sheet paper tray is a great option if you are a heavy user.

HP has released several LaserJet printers this year, and we have developed New Modified MICR toner cartridges for these printers. ALP’s New Modified MICR cartridges are not remanufactured products. Instead, our New Modified MICR line is created by extracting HP’s toner and replacing it with Advantage MICR toner. Designed to meet ANSI and ABA standards, these New Modified MICR cartridges utilize HP’s original packaging and set the industry standard for reliability and quality.

CF287A/X for HP LaserJet M506 in R & D
HP also just released the LaserJet M506 Series. This mid-line printer series replaced the LaserJet P3015 series. The M506 uses the CF287A and CF287X toner cartridges. Our goal is to have the CF287A and the CF287X New MICR toner cartridges on the shelves by December 2015.
HP has just released a new series of printers, the HP LaserJet Pro M402 Series of printers. These new printers will replace the popular HP LaserJet Pro M401 Series. We are developing a the CF226A and CF226X New MICR Toner cartridge for the M402 Series. The CF226A cartridge is rated for 3,100 pages and the CF226X is rated for 9,000 pages. Any M402 series printer can use the standard or high yield toner cartridge.
The printer is fast at 40ppm and 5.6 seconds for the first page out. The recommended monthly page volume is 750 to 4000 pages. The printer comes with a CF226A cartridge, not a starter cartridge. HP has 4 varients, the M402n, M402dn, M402dw and M402d.
We’re hoping to release the CF226A MICR toner cartridge and CF226X MICR toner cartridge in early November 2015.
