IMO, buying original HP paper is a complete waste of money as it is so stale it isn't worth putting in the printer. All the common printers (82240,82143,82162,92,97,etc,etc) will function just fine with anything you can buy today in the proper size. Personally, I've never seen 58mm wide paper, everything here is sold as 57mm. So long as the rolls are the correct 26m length, they should fit without issue and work just fine. Early on, I bought some rolls that where the larger diameter by mistake, I just slabbed them off with a razor blade until they fit and while I didn't get my monies worth, they worked fine.
Thermal paper is no big deal and for all intents and purposes, all the same. Don't let anybody tell you otherwise.
PS: the Staples pn that Bruce refers to is 472872.
