New HP LaserJet P607, P608, P609 Series Includes Radical Design Change

Thursday, June 8th, 2017 | HP Toner, MICR Toner and Check Printing | No Comments

We just received the new HP LaserJet M608N printer. This is a radical internal redesign from the previous few generations of Enterprise Level HP LaserJet printers. The M608 and it’s sisters the M607 and M609 will be replacing the M604, M605, M606 models as the go-to networked work-group monochrome printer in the HP lineup.  This new line of printers now has three toner cartridges to choose from: CF237A (11,000 pgs), CF237X (25,000 pgs) and the CF237Y (41,000 pgs). As with previous generations, the lowest printer in the line, the M607 will not accept the two higher yield toner cartridges. The ability to accept the larger toner cartridges makes the operating costs much lower for the M608 and M609 series.

We are working on MICR Toner cartridges for the new series of toner cartridges. We don’t have an ETA of when the CF237A and CF237X MICR toner cartridges will be available. Stay tuned for more information…

Here are some pictures of the new P608n.

New Printers from HP – HP LaserJet M203, M227 Series

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017 | HP Toner | No Comments

HP has just released a new series of HP LaserJet printers, the M203 and M227 MFP. This printer appears to be a replacement for the P1102w line of printers. Like their last release, the M102 series, these new printers use dual cartridge technology. This means you instead of one consumable to keep track of, you have two: a toner cartridge and an imaging drum cartridge. The printers are inexpensive and at the disposable end of the HP LaserJet range.

Theoretically a two cartridge system make sense, as there doesn’t seem to be a need to replace your imaging drum every time you change your toner cartridge, assuming your drum isn’t worn out.

There are several problems with this system.

  1. It is more expensive.
    Let’s compare two comparable HP printers with new HP toner/drum cartridges.
    The P1102w uses the CE285A toner cartridge, with a page yield of 1,600. We sell the genuine HP CF285A for $68.99, or 4.3 cents per page.
    Now take let’s look at the new HP M203dn. It uses the CF230A Toner, 1,600 page yield, our price $64.34, plus the CF232A imaging drum, 23,000 page yield, our price $91.19. Cost per page on the imaging drum is 0.39 cents per page. Cost per page on the CF230A toner cartridge is 4.02 cents. So your total cost per page is 4.41 cents per page vs. 4.3 cents per page. While it doesn’t cost much more, still you are paying more for an inferior system. You can get the price down by buying the CF230X high yield toner cartridge, but I didn’t have an equivalent cartridge to compare it to for this example.
  2. It’s more complex and difficult to troubleshoot.
    Say your printer develops a line down the lefthand side of the page. Normally we say change out the toner cartridge and 99% of the time the problem is solved. Simplicity is the beauty of the one cartridge system. With a two cartridge system, you first have to try the toner cartridge, and if that doesn’t work you have to try the imaging drum. This means more hassle and more cost.
  3. It will be difficult to remanufacture / recycle these cartridges.
    One aspect of these new two cartridge systems is that there is virtually no waste toner reservoir. While this fact doesn’t concern the average printer user, is does concern us as a toner cartridge manufacturer. It means that the transfer efficiency must be at virtually 100%. Right now we cannot achieve such high transfer rates with the toner and drums that are available to us. The bottom line is we won’t have a remanufactured product for this system for some time. So if you typically use remanufactured cartridges, you will be spending more money buying Genuine OEM.
  4. No MICR availability…for now.
    At least for now, we cannot produce a CF230A MICR Toner cartridge. We are actively working with our toner manufacturers to get a toner cartridge that won’t damage the drum cartridge by overfilling the waste reservoir. We can get a cartridge to work, but with the lower transfer efficiencies, the drum cartridge will fill up with wasted toner long before it’s time. So until we can achieve near perfect efficiency you will not be able to print checks with this printer.

We still recommend HP printers, but we advise you avoid any of the two cartridge system printers. It appears HP is only going to this two cartridge system on their lower end printers. Another brand we recommend is Canon. Traditionally HP printers were actually manufactured by Canon. In addition to making great printers, Canon also provides a much thinner driver with less bloatware than HP. When you install Canon drivers, you’ll notice how quickly the drivers install and how they don’t load you up with software that you don’t need.

We are stocking both the standard HP CF230A and high capacity CF230X toner cartridges, as well as the CF232A Imaging Drum Cartridge.

NEW Product: HP CF279A MICR Toner for HP M12w, M26nw

Sunday, March 12th, 2017 | HP Toner, MICR Toner and Check Printing | No Comments

HP LaserJet M12wWe’ve just released the CF279A MICR Toner Cartridge for the HP LaserJet M12w and M26nw MFP. The CF279A MICR toner cartridge only prints 1,000 pages. This may be a good printer if you only print 50-100 checks a month or less. Otherwise you are better off buying the HP LaserJet P1102w or similar. You’ll get a better faster printer that costs less to operate than the M12w.

This printer is unusual as HP is only selling these through big box stores such as Staples, Best Buy, Office Depot, etc. While HP dealers are not allowed to sell this model, there are equivalent models in HP’s standard line up. We are offering both a standard remanufactured toner cartridge and a magnetic (MICR) toner cartridge for check printing for the M12w.

CF279A MICR Toner Cartridge $69 – http://www.advlaser.com/MICR-Toner-HP-M12w-M26nw-MFP-CF279A-p/rccf279arm.htm

HP New MICR Toner Cartridge Price Increase

Friday, February 3rd, 2017 | HP Toner, MICR Toner and Check Printing | No Comments

On January 1st, 2017, HP (again) increased their toner cartridge prices by 5%. Previously, we’ve absorbed HP’s price increases, but this latest increase has caused us to reevaluate our pricing. Effective February 15, we will have a price increase on HP New MICR Toner Cartridges. So if you have any plans to buy a New MICR Toner Cartridge soon, may as well do it before the 15th and save a few dollars.

Note: Our remanufactured HP MICR cartridges are not affected by this price increase. One more reason to buy remanufactured. All of the quality, half the price.

The HP LaserJet M102w Represents A Major Shift In HP Printer Design

Friday, November 18th, 2016 | HP Toner, MICR Toner and Check Printing | No Comments
HP LaserJet M102w Printer

HP LaserJet M102w Printer

HP just released the HP LaserJet M102w laser printer. From the outside it looks like it’s predecessor, the P1102W. Inside the M102w comes with a two cartridge (drum and toner cartridge) system. From HP’s very first LaserJet Plus released in 1985, every LaserJet printer has had a single cartridge system. The single cartridge system differentiated HP from it’s competitors. Most competitors had two to three cartridges – toner cartridge, drum/imaging cartridge and a developer cartridge.

Both designs have merit, on the one had a multi cartridge system means you are not changing key components that have yet to be worn out. So you could say the multi cartridge system is the “greener” option. But the multi cartridge system can be difficult and expensive to troubleshoot. Let’s say you get a line down the page, do you change the drum cartridge, the developer cartridge or the toner cartridge?

On the other hand the single cartridge system is simple. If a printer has a problem, change the cartridge and 99% of the time the problem is fixed. In the end the single cartridge system was easy to use and it also gave birth to the toner cartridge remanufacturing industry. There are many parts of a toner cartridge that are not worn out when you change it out. So the green option is still available by purchasing remanufactured toner cartridges.

HP CF217A Toner CartridgeWith the single cartridge system you replace the entire imaging system each time you change your toner cartridge. This is a tried and true system and has been proven to be very successful. So it comes as quite a shock that HP would adopt a multi cartridge system after 31 years of success. Time will tell if HP will be successful with this multi cartridge system. Personally we think it’s not a great idea. Mostly we feel that troubleshooting problem will be more difficult and expensive. At the moment, only HP uses a single cartridge system. Recently Lexmark also moved to multi cartridge system with their premier printer lines. The Lexmark system is very complex and it is difficult to know what supplies are compatible and what supplies are not. Brother, Xerox and Okidata also use multi cartridge systems as well.

So while we are not wild about the idea of the multi cartridge system, we still think HP has the best product around. At the moment here are the products we have available for the M102w.

HP’s LaserJet M102w Supply List
CF217A Toner Cartridge Page Yield: 1,600 pages
CF219A Imaging Drum Cartridge – Page Yield: 12,000 pages

In addition the the LaserJet M102w, HP also released two MFP cartridges that use the same set of cartridges, the LaserJet M130fw MFP and the LaserJet M130fn MFP.

CF217A MICR Toner for LaserJet M102w

We have started development on the New CF217A MICR toner cartridge. This product has already passed QC with flying colors and we hope to have the M102w MICR toner cartridge on the shelves in early December 2016. In addition we will likely sell a M102w MICR laser printer once we exhaust our stock of M1102W MICR Laser Printers.

So if you are looking for a light duty MICR laser printer and you are not sold on the two cartridge system, you may want to consider our HP LaserJet P1102w MICR Laser Printer while they are still in stock.
