This review is from: SAMSUNG CLT-K409S, K409 Toner Cartridge Black
Pros: Good OEM toner.
Cons: wish Samsung had higher capacity cartridges.
Other Thoughts: I shopped around this time just to make sure... of course Newegg still has the best price I could find. It was almost half the price of the local office-supply stores.
I considered the two-pack to save about $7 more by buying two at once, but decided on this single pack.
Shipped same day, great external packaging, (some places just slap a label on the retail box... not Newegg of course)
It had been six months since I needed to buy toner.
Pros: Plenty fast, very inexpensive, and it's BIG!
I exercised it a bunch on arrival just to make sure that if was going to fail early, it would do so during the Newegg return period. It now has worked flawlessly for the last 4 months.
Cons: Only what is common to all drives this big.
While this is the among fastest drives I've used in a desktop (at about 90 to 120 MB/second ) because it is SO BIG it takes a some time to format, clone, fill-up, etc.
It's a bit like filling up a stadium through a doorway designed for a theater... it just takes a while to get everybody in or out.
Other Thoughts: Upon arrival, I filled it up a couple of times with copies of large files just to exercise it. Supposedly this isn't necessary, but I never trust a new drive right away.
Actually I never trust *any* drive completely... old or new, fast or slow, big or small, expensive or cheap, good brand or bad... hard drives fail... even SSDs can fail (at a lower rate). That is why we have backups! duh!
Statistically the failure-rate-difference between brands is minimal, and no brand is or will ever be failure-proof enough to get you out of backups for data that you care about.
Please stop all the assertions based on tiny sample sizes that one brand fails and another one never does...
Anyone whining about loosing their precious data has only themselves to blame.
This has been doing a great job of storing my back-ups, and large media files. Stop shopping and get TWO today! (One is for backups remember?)
This review is from: LEXMARK 69G8256 TONER CARTRIDGE FOR OPTRA E 3000PG YIELD Black
Pros: Brand new, name-brand equipment.
Works great. Best price I found in 30 min. shopping around. Stop looking around and get this one.
Other Thoughts: Apparently drop-shipped directly from the manufacturer. Arrived two days later with the rest of my Newegg order.READ FULL REVIEW
