Rosewill RTCA-FX9 Black Toner Replaces Canon 104 0263B001

2 out of 5 eggs Used to be a good product 08/09/2012

This review is from: Rosewill RTCA-FX9 Black Toner Replaces Canon 104 0263B001

Pros: Price - earlier ones worked fine.

Cons: I read the reviews on this Rosewill compatible cartridge many months ago and decided to give both it and the printer (Canon MF4350d on sale) a try. They worked great together for 2 of Rosewill's cartridges. The quantity printed was good. Then recently with the last two RW carts ordered and installed I get the out of toner beep and light after only a few prints. I can reset the cart in the slot in the printer but nothing changes. Last cart printed a good number of prints even though it warns that it is our of toner - I just ignore it and it goes on printing. Now working on the second one that beeps and blinks after printing just 2 sheets. Maybe Roswell has changed something in their reman process and it does not work as well as the first ones they made.

It is a sight inconvenience to just print through the beeping and blinking. Also the power save function cannot be set while the toner out light blinks so I just turn on and off the printer each time I use it.

Other Thoughts: Because these toner carts are so expensive to get from the OEM mfgr, I'll probably go back to the kind of refillable inkjet printing I used to use. I kept the old reliable Canon for just this reason and it has worked fine since 2004. I also sometimes use compatible inkjet carts from Sophia Global which work just fine and are a small fraction of the price of new ones. So if you don't actually need a laser printer the old inkjet may be a cost effective alternative.

Olympus VR-340 Black 16MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Just Right 06/15/2012

This review is from: Olympus VR-340 Black 16MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom

Pros: Mostly I like the size and weight of it, slightly larger and heaver than others. It allows for a decent grip with a place for my thumb. Easy to hold and fingers don't accidentally press the wrong button. Menus are good and there is dialog on screen for each of them. Features and specs are comparable for the price range. I like the battery included which eliminates the longevity problems and expense when using AA or AAA cells. I'm using a 16 gb memory card and it holds more pics than I'll shoot in a year or two. The mem card is a class 10 fast and it actually is pretty fast in high res. Cam starts up quick. I did not install any of the provided software, just notice that it reads as an external drive in Win7 and grab the images off it, then delete them from inside the cam in the same window.

Cons: The screen is definitely hard to see in very bright daylight - I've got it adjusted to a darker exposure in order to get a true blue sky. Like all the point and shooters I've seen (not really a problem with just this one) the image is very contrasty and the sky washes out if the shadows are well exposed and if the sky is blue then the shadows are a bit too dark. If I really want the image, I'll use photoshop to correct it and so I tend to underexpose them a little. To be honest I really do miss the subtlety of old school film emulsion.
