This review is from: Rosewill RTCA-CC364X Black Cartridge

Pros:

Cheap.
Acceptable print quality.

Cons:

May not last the rated number of pages.

Printer may report erroneous information about cartridge life.

May experience occasional spotting/smudging of output.

Other Thoughts:

This is an update to the review I posted in May. The cartridge started out well, but about 10,000 pages in we had perhaps 20 pages of smudged output, then it cleared up. After 20,000 pages, output became smudged again and did not clear up despite shaking, cleaning, etc. In the end I removed the cartridge from the printer after 20,128 pages.

The Supplies Status page from the printer indicated that the cartridge had printed 20,128 pages, but had 54% of its life and 23,628 additional pages remaining. I cannot believe that the cartridge would have been good for 44,000 pages had it not started to smudge, so I am presuming that the remaining life stats were bogus.

In the end, I bought another one of these anyway to replace it, because the cost per page is so much less than the OEM cartridge that the hassle of only getting 20,000 pages and having occasional smudging was an acceptable tradeoff.

I will post another review when I see how cartridge #2 does over its lifespan.
