Can you tell me what the shelf life of printer toner is? I have 6 year old toner (Xerox 006R01122, 006R01123, 006R01124, and 006R01125). Is it still good?

Try it.

Some newer ink cartridges from certain manufacturers have expiration dates coded. I heard that in some cases, setting the computer date a year back helped in certain cases. This may not be applicable to toner.

Laser printer toner will definitely last far longer than inkjet inks because toner is already a dry power. Only moisture can or excessive heat can ruin them. Moisture will cause tone to stick together in clumps. Excessive heat can potentially cause toner to bind to each other. However, excessive heat will likely damage the cartridge anyway.

Ink eventually dries out.
