Just quick notes: Rebate limits 2 and the coupon actually works on 2 too (I think some Newegg coupons limit 1). Also in my experience True Image toners easily beats Linkyo, Merax, so I bought 2 despite that I hate dealing with rebates nowadays.

Good deal for some. Personally, I would never be able to use all of those. It's been 3+ years and I'm still on the starter toner Stick Out Tongue

I was going to pickup the one in the OP, then I realized I need the TN-450. Oh, well.

3+ years. Do these not dry? Never used toners, only ink jets.

Toner is a fine powder, during printing the powder is attracted to the paper drum where needed, then applied to the paper and set with heat. I don't know the practical shelf life of toner, but I would guess years since there is no liquid. I've heard of toner carts from the 1980s that still work, but since one of the parts that need some replacing on a laser printer is the drum (where the drum gets worse (over a couple thousand pages) at attracting toner only and exactly where needed), printouts come out "dirtier" and dirtier.

If you use decent aftermarket ink though, ink jet still has good value advantages like smaller printers and usually better photo/image printing, at a comparable or slightly higher price per page (difference of cents). Laser's still great if you do infrequent big print jobs though, or do at least a few pages of black only pages all the time.

I would be curious to know what you like better about the True Image toners. I use Linkyo and the only problem I have is there is a bit of a smear if you rub on the print.

Seriously though, it takes us a couple years to go through one of these toners... the printer will likely die before most of us can use up 5 toners for the same printers.

It lasted way longer in my experience.

You probably don't print much at home. 2600 pages at 5% is really usually just a few hundred pages. One or two packs of paper only. In my experience all the other brands like Linkyo etc. lasts only one pack of paper. I've gone through at least 2 Merax, 3 Linkyo, 1 generic and 1 True Image the last 3 years and the 7860DW (uses TN450)'s still going strong - didn't change drum either.

I think you're off on a couple points. Like that other guy that replied saying he's used the same starter for a few years now. Now HE doesn't print a lot. Our house prints a lot more than that, but a recent starter still lasted us around 6 months and printed around 500 pages (it's a new printer and I checked the usage a few times near the end while waiting to replace the toner). That works out to over 80 pages a month of home use. While average use is definitely more than quoted 5% coverage for most people, it's really not that much more like you claim (for us at least), and I'm thinking our usage is a lot closer to average than yours with a 7 toners in 3 years habit. How long the toners last depends of course on what you print most often so results vary. Anyway, by the same usage that a '700' page starter toner really prints 500 pages (for us), a 2600 page toner should still be good for around 1850 pages. Though of course like you pointed out, not all generics are made the same or filled the same.

True, everyone might have different printing needs/amount. I was judging based on my experience with various acclaimed (on slickdeal) brands. They really just print a few hundred pages up to 1000, and some amazon reviews pointed this, and Linkyo replied that it's because the 2600 page rating was about 5%, so normal use could be different. So my assumption was that normal use was significantly more than 5%, thus usual cartridges last 1-2 packs of paper - that was evidenced by my experience with the various cartridges. And I don't print documents that use a lot of ink either. Given that you used less cartridges, you might just got lucky on the batch.

Still when I used True Image toner, that one lasted like twice as long as the other ones. That's the main point of my posts.

Not for me. I am not buying true generics anymore. I have had bad experience with those not printing dark enough.
