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.
HP has another rebate. Buy $250 of Original HP Ink and/or Toner and receive a $50 Shell Gift Card or The Home Depot® Gift Card. Offer expires January 31, 2017. As with most HP rebates, the rebate comes in the form of Home Depot or Shell Oil gift cards.
Be sure to check page two of the rebate form to make sure your HP toner/ink qualifies. As always our HP New MICR Toner Cartridges do not qualify for any HP rebates.
Our CF217A MICR Toner Cartridge for the HP LaserJet M102w is in the final phases of quality assurance. We plan to release the New CF217A MICR Toner on December 5, 2016. The CF217A has a page yield of 1,600 pages. The MICR quality for printing checks is fantastic. Our CF217A MICR toner is a new MICR toner cartridge, not remanufactured. The CF217A MICR toner is compatible with the following HP Models: HP LaserJet M102w, M130fw MFP, M130fn MFP. The M102w uses a toner and an imaging cartridge. This new two cartridge system is something we’ve never seen from HP. In theory the two cartridge system should save you money, but in this case it really doesn’t. HP charges the same for this 1,600 page toner cartridge as they did for the 1,600 page CE285A used in the HP LaserJet P1102w (this was a single cartridge system). The imaging cartridge CF219A only needs to changed every 12,000 or once per 7.5 toner cartridges if you are printing 5% page coverage. Note, you don’t need a MICR imaging cartridge to print checks, just the MICR Toner Cartridge.
New HP CF217A MICR Toner Cartridge for M102w, M130fw, M130fn MFP – 17A MICR – $120.00 (Includes Free Ground Shipping)
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.
With 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.
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.
If you buy genuine HP toner cartridges, there is probably a rebate going about 50% of the time. The current HP rebate has two levels. Buy $200, get $25 rebate, buy $300, get $50 rebate. The $50 rebate represents a 16.6% return = not bad. Make sure your toner cartridge is listed. The rebate form has a list of toner cartridges. It’s a long list and likely your LaserJet cartridge has made the list.
As usual, you have to jump through the hoops – fill out the form, cut out the proof of purchase off the box and send in the invoice.
