    Needs better print quality

    We bought this for my 86-year-old mother to use, it's simple to set up, and from which to print. I change the toner for her, and that's fairly easy to do as well. We really like the ability to return the empty cartridge to Brother with a free return label. Except for the very occasional letter, the printer is used for free crossword puzzles we find online. This is where the print quality is really lacking, on some pages it is impossible to read the numbers in the grid itself! Plus we only use the 'official' Brother toner, and get a lot fewer pages than advertised. The cartridge is not inexpensive, either. In the end, however, this is much easier for Mom to use than the inkjet I use with my computer. Just be prepared for it to cost a little more than an inkjet to run.

    First Bother product; so far-so good. Replaced initial Toner Cartridge that came with machine. Easy to install, and I have always used Laser printers instead of "Jet" style. The print quality is very good for what I believe to be an inexpensive printer. My old IBM and Xerox Laser printers were much more expensive and replacement cartridges were also more; three to five hundred dollars. Wish this product was closer to $50.00 instead of $68.00. Like I said, so far-so good. We'll have to see how long and/or how many copies this new cartridge makes; hopefully more than others have experienced.

    Contrary to other reviews, I have had my Brother printer for several months now and have been great success with my toner cartridges. I use it in the office with 4-5 other employees and we print on average 100-150 pages a day...while i have not kept track of the page count it runs in tandem with our HP printer and the toner falls right in line. I would highly recommend to anyone especially for the price!

    Good basic laser printer

    This is a good basic laser printer for home (my use) or I suppose for office. There are a few negative comments about cartridge life. The cartridge that came with mine started complaining after a couple of weeks that it needed to be replaced. A little research on the Internet revealed that this wasn't (necessarily) true,and that the ink sensor in this machine can give false readings. Search the internet for steps on resetting the toner sensor in the machine (very easy) and you can keep using it for a lot longer.

    I was running low on toner, so I bought this because it stated it could print more pages and last a little longer than the equivalent toner. I got a good 500 pages from it until it started to say low toner again, though. I kind of expected it to last longer, but it is easy to use, and at least I don't have to keep buying ink cartridges like I did for my old Epson or HP printers. Best printer I've had so far.

    TN-450 High Yield Toner

    These toner cartridges never seem to last as long as I'd like. I do print something almost every day. That said, it does last longer than the normal yield toner cartridge. Fortunately, the price has not increased since I bought the Brother MFC -7460DN. Best Buy was just a little higher than some other online sites, but BB was much more convenient for me & worth the slightly higher price. I'm happy with the purchase, and would recommend BB..

    It's Toner

    I am not sure what would make toner "excellent," but the only way it would be less than good is if a) the cartridge ran out of toner way faster than normal, which so far has not been the case, or b) if there was some mechanical defect that prevented the cartridge from working. In my case, neither one of these conditions were true. If you have a laser printer that uses this cartridge, it is an absolute necessity.

    We had an 8 month old Samsung refrigerator that had a defective evaporator coil and would not keep food in the freezer section frozen, Samsung service was horrible. After three weeks with no success in getting the unit fixed, we called the best buy store where we bought the Samsung refrigerator. Within 3 business, we had a new LG refrigerator in our house.

    Page yield is a mystery

    After 20 years in practice, my office has settled on Brother printers for all of our printing needs. I like the fact the the toner is separate from the drum. We buy the XL high yield cartridges but I can't say for certain that they're cost effective over the normal yield cartridges. How you print, i.e. bold, underline etc. affects your yield.

    This toner cartridge is easy to install and works great. My only complaint is that it's an extended cartridge but it doesn't seem to last as long as I'd expect it to. I took out the last one and moved it side to side and up and down to move the toner around a bit, which gave me about another month, so there is that.

    Brother Printers do the job

    Just a shout out to Brother printers for their reliability and functionality. I have always had success with them, and their consumables are consistently reliable. You can find cheaper toner, but it can be hit or miss. Brother materials are always going to give you the page yields they claim.

    I searched the internet & Best Buy had a great price on this toner pack. It works perfectly with my Brother multi-function. I will definitely continue buying from Best Buy as long as price is competitive. Convenient pick-up at my local Best Buy w/o shipping charges. Great purchase!

    GOOD QUALITY INK

    I have been using this ink for the last four or five years and I am happy with the quality and the amount of pages it yields. It's crazy how expensive ink is compared to how much a new printer costs! However, leaving that aside, I would recommend this ink to others.

    Pleased with Brother Toner Cartridges

    I've tried the refilled cartridges and was not happy. They were spotty and left streaks or blanks. Original Brother toner cartridges have always been great. I've had my printer for almost two years now and have replaced the cartridge a few times. Always pleased with the results.

    Maybe it is the paper but after running a large number of copies the pages begin to stick together. Other than that the life of the printer is good for the price making it a fast and cost friendly printer for small business use. The quality is very clear and much better than ink jet.

    I like this toner cartridge. The print is very clear and I don’t have a great printer. It would be nice if the cartridges lasted longer and if they were a little less expensive. But, overall it is a good toner cartridge.

    I've had a Brother 2270-DW for years and toner life never quite hits the specified page count. I get approx 75% of stated numbers. When it's time to purchase a new one, I find that Best Buy offers $20 lower than the big office supply stores.

    This is easy to install and works well, but does not last as long as I had hoped. It is supposed to be a high yeild, but so far, it lasts only a few hundred sheets. It may be as yeilding as the regular toner cartridge.

    This is the cartridge needed for my printer at a good sales prices. Be sure to look at Best Buys prices online before going to the store. Store cashiers will honor online sales prices if you make them aware of the lower prices online.

    OEM Toner is better

    OEM Toner is better than compatibles. Only problem is that once Brother printer senses low toner, it shuts down and you have to go thru a process to continue printing. I always do the "shake " and get much more printing.
