HP toner on eBay

If price is an important factor when buying printer toner, you should at least take a look at eBay if you haven't already.  The condition and quality varies, but if you only buy genuine OEM toner in unopened packages, it's hard to go wrong.  Prices on eBay are often lower than retail prices.

Here are some current HP toner cartridges available on eBay for deep discounts:


HP Q5942X (42X) toner: $122.00

HP 42X is the high-yield toner used in LaserJet 4250 and 4350 models, among others.  This toner sells for $219.99 on Amazon right now, or $292.99 on Staples.


HP CF287A (87A) toner: $139.99

This HP LaserJet M506 and M527 series toner is listed for $218.23 on Amazon and $225.99 on Staples.
