Rated 2 out of 5 by annidoswim from Very slow shipping Be warned. Free shipping has a price. Very slow delivery. When they state 3-10 days they mean 10 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dawnc from Works Great, what else could one ask for? We bought this for our office (high volume) printer and I'm really glad we did. These last a long time, are easy to install, and give you all the instructions to send the old one in for recycling with postage paid, which is a big bonus!

is this compatible with HP LaserJet Pro M402n?

Asked by: Raul0
That is not the correct cartridge for the LaserJet Pro M402n. You need the 26A standard or 26X high yield. This link https://www.hp.com/us-en/shop/sitesearch?keyword=26 will give you the options for the M402n cartridges.
