They are also called HP M428fdw toner cartridges. In HP models, A represents standard yield and X represents high yield. In general, X can print more pages than A and also more cost-effective. Take the 58 series for example, the capacity of CF258A is 3,000 pages, and cost $38.99 in our store. While the CF258x is 10,000 pages and cost $104.95. In this way, we can see the cost per page of these two cartridges. The cost per page of CF258A is $0.012, where as the cost per page of CF258X is $0.010. It’s obvious that cartridge with higher page yield is with better value.
What We Think about HP M428fdwEverything has its advantages and disadvantages, but when the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages, we can ignore its disadvantages. Many people praise HP’s printing quality, we also think the printing quality of HP printer is very excellent. But the document feeder is often criticized by the mass users. When the document enters the output tray, the back end of the paper usually does not fall. So as to avoid the front edge collision of subsequent documents, resulting in the blockage of the output tray. The level of the output tray is not enough to prevent repeated paper jams. Even when faxing, scanning or copying, you can only put in ten sheets of paper at most. You must stand there and watch all the time in case of paper jam. If you copy, fax or scan more than 10 pages at a time, this may be a big disadvantage for you.
In addition, the touch screen is a little small, but you can also choose to operate with your mobile phone or computer, which has little impact on you. But in the end, it is you to make the choice, we are only responsible for providing you with some pertinent advice.
