I ordered this:

I am still dickering over what toner cartridge to buy. When I worked at a
copy shop (8 self-serve computers plus 1-2 where we'd do resumes and
fliers), we always bought HP consumables. But that's different -- we
couldn't have work going out that's less than perfect.

Remanufactured (high-capacity) cartridges go from $25 to $80 (counting
shipping) and new ones above that. I can't see how the guys on the bottom
have much room for niceties like good padding or thorough inspections. Does
anyone have experience with remanufactured toner cartridges?
