Compatible High Yield Black Laser Toner Cartridge to Replace Samsung ML-D2850B
Why the new packaging?
I have purchased LD products for the companies I have worked at for the past five years. They are the cheapest compatibles that have always worked for me.
Previously they have always been in an LD box. This always seemed to make a statement that it was LD standing behind the product. My past two shipments have been different.
I have received a couple of blue boxes with penguins on them and ten green boxes with graphics of printers and components on them. Neither style has a company name.
In one respect I like the packaging better - It is the same size package as an OEM - The previous LD packaging was almost twice as thick.
The five star rating I'm giving is based on my previous history with LD products. I have not had time to determine if these are the same products with different packaging or if this is a new manufacturer and if so will it be a consistent quality product. I'm sure LD will replace anything if I ever have a problem with it but I'm still wondering what's up.

This is the third time I've purchased this toner cartridge. No problems with ordering or use.

This cartridge performs well, we will see how long it lasts. New chip turns off the warning light.

I purchased the high-yield, NON-OEM version of the cartridge and got so frustrated, I threw it out and bought an OEM unit from the Staples down the street. The cartridge would repeatedly jam on almost every print job, especially if you used a higher quality, heavier weight paper. And when the cartridge did print, it left these light roller "streaks" that just looked awful. I couldn't use it to make printouts that I could send out to anyone, let alone make printouts to use, say, in a meeting.

Good ink, but sub-par consumption of it
I've used LD Products toners for my Samsung printer for over a year. They work, they print well -- that part is all good.
My unhappiness stems from two facts I've closely watched since before using these. How many pages does the toner cartridge actually print, and how much toner is left in the cartridge when the printer calls it totally empty. The LDs fall flat on both counts.
I consistently get only 2500-2900 page prints out of these cartridges with a stated capacity of 5000. Granted what I print has a page density of more than 5%. But it does not approach 50%, which would be half a page in pure black. Sorry, they simply do not have the capacity they state.
Further, the LD cartridges cease working when there is still 10-14% of the toner remaining in the cartridge. This figure is reported by the Samsung print manager software, and indicates to me that, again, the full stated capacities of these cartridges can never be realized.
So while the price of the LDs is much less than the OEM cartridges, to a large extent you are only getting what you pay for. And much of the apparent savings is illusory.

Not worth it for price paid, the quality is bad
My current 5000 pages cartridge was a replacement of an original order that didn't even work at all. This one didn't even last 1000 pages when black ink start fading, and messing out my whole print jobs. The printer is now destroyed. It started jamming/smudging due to the opening/closing to shake the toner cartridge. We can't use it any more because every page that comes out is almost blank. I am afraid to buy another toner because the printer might not even work all together.
