I tried a reconditioned generic brand once. The cartridge would squeak as it used the toner. Went back to the original and am happy as usual. Although it is a little pricey, you usually get what you pay for.
Always Go Original

After trashing several printers, I now always purchase the real original brand toners/ink cartridges etc. I have never had any problems since.
