CF226A VS CF226X – Which One to Get?

Many people are wondering which toner cartridge they should get for their HP LaserJet Pro M402 and M426 series printers. Is it CF226A (HP 26A) or CF226X (HP 26X) ? We will explain the differences between the two toners and give recommendations.






                   CF226A                                                                         CF226X


Page Yield: CF226A is a standard page yield toner with 3,100 page yield. While CF226X is a high yield toner with 9,000 page yield.

Size: CF226X is slightly bigger and heavier than CF226A.

Compatible Printers: CF226A and CF226X fit the same printer models. They are HP LaserJet Pro M402d, M402dn, M402dne, M402dw, M402n, MFP M426dw, MFP M426fdn, MFP M426fdw.


For users who print occasionally about a few pages a day on average, CF226A is a good choice because it is a lower price toner than CF226X. For users who print a lot such as office printing or small business printing that print tens or hundreds a day, CF226X is a better choice because it has a much higher page yield and a much lower cost per page than CF226A.
