    Good toner but wrong category (inkjet) in BestBuy

    I got Brother Laser printer after I finally got tired of buying Epson MFC inkjet cartridges with electronic chips. Laser printer is costly in the beginning but its quality is much sharper/better and it doesn't smudge if there's a little moisture. Also I don't want to deal with inkjet cartridges anymore. Unfortunately I need to spend more in advance compared to inkjet printer cost. And I could not find this toner under the laser toner category in Best Buy online but finally I found it under inkjet category. Best Buy online should fix this. I used to have Epson printer. Sometimes the Epson ink dried out if I didn't use the printer for a while. Sometimes I printed only a few pages, the chips told me that I ran out of ink. And worse if one ink is out, then I cannot print anything. I never want to buy any Epson printer anymore. HP printer has a good printing quality in general & better print quality compared to Epson but my past experience with HP inkjet printer, the ink cartridges ran out quickly. So it's not cost efficient but I got the worst experience with Epson inkjet printer and (as well as cheap Canon inkjet printer).

    I do IT for a living and have sadly found that most if not all remanufactured or compatible toners are usually not as good as the factory toner for whatever model of printer you own. It has been my experience that they usually don't live up to their advertised page count and I have had a lot of them leak toner inside the printer. Until there are any reman cartridges that are as good as the OEM ones I have found it better to just bite the bullet and buy the OEM toner and accept it. I do find that Brother black and white printers are pretty economical to run since they use a separate drum and toner cartridge. Most other printers have the two combined so the cartridges are more expensive to purchase and on the final per page price. I use Brother fax machines at work and Brother printers at home and have been happy with them in both situations.

    When it comes to toner cartridges experience has taught us that -- regardless of the savings provided by comparable generic cartridges -- there's NOTHING better than the original! After experiencing downtime because of toner leaking and gumming up gears or cartridges re-manufactured to the point connectors don't seat as they should so error messages prevent printing, it's actually less expensive to pay more for an original manufacturer cartridge. That's why we ONLY purchase Brother cartridges for our Brother printer. And the BLACK cartridge does EXACTLY as it should without headaches and issues.

    Easier than anticipated

    I am not familiar with high end printers and this is the first one I've ever owned that uses toners vs little ink cartridges. This replacement toner was easier than I anticipated to install. Took about 5 minutes and clearly explained what I needed to do/not do in order to ensure successful printing once installed. I was recommended to try a brother printer from a friend who also runs a small business, because I continually had connectivity issues when trying to print over wifi with the HP laser printer I purchased originally. So happy I took that back and found this gem.

    I don't know why we kept buying inkjet printers. Maybe because it's cheap and what most people buy. We moved into a new office and decided we need to try using color toners. It was worth it in every way. Color comes out perfect. Pages come out perfect each time. Yes the toners are expensive but saves so much time with less trips to the store to keep buying ink toner. Brother wasn't as well known as Epson or HP, but apparently for office printing, Brother is the way to go! This is my first time going with high yield so hope it does what it says!

    Seems like I needed to replace all three colors at once. Odd because you would think some of the colors are used less than the others. Hmm. Everything was good after I replaced all three. I was able to switch to black and white printing while I was waiting to pick up the color toners. We will see how long these last. These are replacing the original toners that came with the printer.

    It's definitely ink

    This is amazing ink for your printer. It helps your printer do it's important job of memorializing your well thought out and spell checked Confessionals onto a peice of paper. You can then revisit these professions of your love throughout your lifetime and remember how you fundamentally failed in life and should have never broken up with Josh. He was the only person that really got you. I wish I never sent you that letter Josh. It's all your fault that I'm empty and dying inside.

    My minimum criterium is that it works; and it works. I think that it was packaged well, in environmentally friendly packaging, and even better, they provide free shipping for returning the old cartridge, so it doesn't go in the landfill. Instructions are clear. Procedure for replacement is easy. On the other hand, for balanced reporting, I've got very little experience with other toner-based laser printers, so it is hard to compare.
