It's come time for me to replace one or more of these cartridges for HP 4525 laserjet printer.
Toner cartridge numbers are CE260A CE261A CE262A CE263A.
Anyone here have experience buying third party cartridges with excellent results - where at and price?
Staples.com wants $1,125.96 for a set of 4! I found a couple "compatible" offers at MUCH LESS:

If warranty is still valid, I'd go with the remanufactured rather than "compatible" replacements. If the printer is out of warranty I don't see the harm in trying the less expensive "compatible" replacements.

I'd look at that from a different tack.
If this is a business printer and you need it for business purposes, then is it worth the risk of compatibles?
I had a brother colour laser, bought a set of compatibles, and colour printing was dreadful after that. - I'm convinced that it had code in their to stop it from working with non brother.
Dell has had such code in for a long time.
My Minolta 'magically' ran out of all three colour cartridges at exactly the same time.
If it's a home one, do you really need that level of performance? - I dumped my Brother laser when a set of original toner carts cost more than the printer ( and I refuse to be emotionally blackmailed about the environment when a large corporation has no qualms about ripping me off.
Looks like the HP ones are more than the printer as well.
I bought an Epson Inkjet with three yeas warranty, print, copy, scan fax. - Either flat bed copy/ scan or sheet feeder, for less than £100, and compatibles from Prink at about £10 for a full set.
Prink is UK, but the ink is from the US.
Have you tried searching of toner suppliers and reading their reviews ??
