Clarification re drum life and toner
Just a minor point of correction to the previous review that addresses the distinction between the DRUM units and the TONER cartridges: first, when you purchase the printer, it arrives with 4 drum units that ALREADY HAVE “STARTER” TONER CARTRIDGES IN THEM. This may be lead to some of the confusion, but, yes, they are distinctly separate products. Second, the previous review indicates that the drum units are good for “5,000″ pages and that you would therefore replace the toner cartridges 3 times before replacing the drum. In point of fact, the drum life is rated at “15,000″ pages. Consequently, you would replace the toner 8-9 times IF you use the TN-160 toner product –rated at 1,600 pages– or closer to 6-7 times if you use the more economical TN-210 product which is rated for 2,100 pages.
Why the 1 Star?
Quite simply: The Brother color laser printers have a separate drum (DR) for each of the four toner (TN)cartridges. The toner cartridges fit into the drums. The drums should last for 5,000 pages, but the toner cartridges are rated for 1,600 pages so you will have to replace the toner cartridges about three times before the drum unit needs to be replaced. The Brother printers clearly state the toner cartridge and drum part numbers that they use.
If the part number didn’t tip off the previous reviewer, the price of the Drums should have. A set of 4 toner cartridges lists for $285, although you can purchase them on Amazon for around $200. The 4 drums are sold as a set and cost $104 on Amazon.
I just bought the Brother 9120 printer and it uses these cartridges. I also just ordered an extra set of the toner cartridges from Amazon and they arrived yesterday. The print looks great so the printer, drums and toner cartridges are all working together well.
JayInTn one-star review is inappropriate
JayInTn rates this OEM Brother product as one star becaue he admittedly didn’t read the description closely and accidentally purchased these drums when he actually wanted toner. That’s a bogus rating, friends. Since JayInTn seems unwilling to correct it, this product has an artificially low overall rating. The product itself is a five-star kit, actually quite reasonably priced for a set of four reprographic photosensitive drums. And JayInTn will need the drums eventually anyway, so his erroneous purchase is not in vain. Hopefully Jay will go back and read the reviewing tutorial.
Brother printer cartridges
I received the product as promised and in a timely manner. Since I purchased the cartridges as spares, I have not had an opportunity to use them yet, but since they are new and not refurbished, I have every confidence they will perform well.
All one must do is read the description properly
We have been researching the Brother 3075 Laser printer for a few days now. With that research obviously comes the cost of ownership. As we read the reviews by customers on the supplies one can’t help but realize that others are just not reading the product information correctly. What’s amazing is that based on pricing for each toner, or for that matter, the separate drums, that Amazon’s pricing really cannot be beat! First off let me correct some information that keeps being input into others reviews despite others who have tried to correct them. Each DRUM has a cycle life of 15,000 pages, not 5,000 as several have mistakenly stated. Second, Amazon has grouped together both toner and drums not package deals or together. Read the description carefully. Lastly, I am now going to purchase this printer because the overall cost vs quality cannot be beat. For those of you with issues, sorry it’s happened, but based on what I have read you failed to read everything in detail before making a decision. Good luck
Great price and works as advertised
I go through a lot of toner and bundling all four colors for this product works well for my organization.
Just as described
Need it, bought it. Just as described? Not much to say about this product. Works with the printer. Glad to get it via mail
Great price my local print store quoted me $50 per drum, so this is a great price. No complaints here.
