Lexmark has introduced new toner cartridges which fit into the new E342 printer but which will also fit into some previous model printers. The 34217HR cartridge with a yield of 2,500 pages also fits into the following printers:

E230, E232, E330 and E332N

The 34217XR has a yield of 6,000 pages and fits into the following printers:

E330 and E332N

They replace the 12A8400 and 12A8405 cartridges in the above printers. Street prices for the 34217HR and 34217XR and the 12A8400 and 12A8405 are the same.

This is obviously another example of the printer companies bringing out a multitude of new cartridges to stay one step ahead of cartridge remanufacturers.

The 12A8302 photoconductor unit remains unchanged across this range of printers.
