Final update: April 23rd. Starter cartridge finally says it's run completely out (though it still seems to print). That's a total of about 200 pages since I first got a message. The 3-times-Go printout shows a total of 730 pages - roughly what the starter cartridge is supposed to have, and I've now installed the hi-capacity cartridge

----- first update
Update. It's now April 11th. I've printed at least another 100 pages and things are still going well. But I've discovered another feature. In addition to the 7-times-Go (described below), there's a 3-times-Go that will print a three page report showing everything you ever wanted to know about your printer, including the amount of toner actually left. (Note that I have a Brother HL-2270DW. The cartridge also fits other machines that may have a different way of getting the same info.)

----- original post
Like others I started getting a 'toner-low' message after maybe 450 or so pages. In looking for a way to trick the printer, I read the manual(!). It said to press the Go button seven times in a row to clear the toner-low lockout, and that once that was cleared the cartridge would continue to print until the toner was actually gone.

Worked like a charm. I'll update this when the thing actually runs completely out.

Understanding this, the way they do it makes sense: really early warning that you should order another cartridge - and a lockout that you can't ignore, keeping you from having a really bad day in the future.

I converted to a Brother monochrome laser printer a few months ago after years of frustration with another brand's all-in-one printer that consumed huge amounts of color ink even though I printed everything in black and white. The toner cartridge that came with the Brother laser unit ran out quickly, as I was warned, and it took a while to figure out how to replace the cartridge the first time around but now it's easy. I've got the printer set for 300 dpi (and for text instead of graphics) to maximize my yield. Like others, I started to get a "low toner" warning around 1500 copies and if it weren't for seeing other Amazon reviews for other Brother cartridges, I might have changed the cartridge shortly after getting the first warning. Having read the other reviews, however, I removed the existing cartridge, shook it a bit to assure the remaining toner was well distributed, ran the "carona wire" back and forth a couple of times and returned the printer to regular use. So far, I've printed over 1200 additional pages since the first warning and everything is still printing fine, with no lines or other problems that come when the toner actually is low. I'm watching to see how much longer the old cartridge will work, but wow, the other reviewers definitely helped by warning of this problem. It's something Brother ought to correct. By the way, I didn't put tape over the holes as others have suggested since I don't want any complications from that, although may do so the next time around. As an additional note, unless Amazon has fixed the problem, ignore some of their drop down menus when selecting the right cartridge for the right Brother unit. They say the TN 450 isn't correct for a Brother HL2270DW when in fact it is.

My history with the HL-2270DW and the TN-450 cartridges:

Starter Cartridge - 751 pages, changed 12/27/2011
2nd Cartridge - 1,999 pages (total printer count 2,750) Changed 03/29/2012
3rd Cartridge - 2,559 pages (total printer count 5,309) Changed 07/24/2012
4th Cartridge - 2,627 pages (total printer count 7,936) Changed 11/19/2012
5th Cartridge - did not record
6th Cartridge - Approx. 2,300 pages (total printer count 12,585) Changed 08/14/2013 (DRUM IS NOW GIVING WARNING OF 0% LIFE LEFT)
DRUM UNIT REPLACED AT 14,908 PAGES 12/21/2013
7th Cartridge - 2,537 Pages (total printer count 15,122) Changed 01/03/2014

I run them until I notice a problem with the output itself, the low toner message comes on long before they actually run out. You can press the GO button 7 times in quick succession to do this.

Brother toner cartridges have always been excellent buys for me. The extra cost to go to the high-yield version is worth it - it lasts a LONG time.

i like everything about this toner....except that crazy practice brother has of telling the user the toner is empty when it is very far from it. this is a well known issue and used to have easy workarounds such as taping up the sensor, etc. but it now seems brother has ended that party.

good printer...good toner....i just wish they'd let me decide when i was out of toner instead of having to press go buttons 7 times or other ridiculous tricks i need to spend time researching on the net.

I ordered this high yield toner (TN-450) on Amazon back in February. It is until recently I installed this new toner (after the low-output toner that came with the printer Brother MFC-7360N was out). After printing about only 10 pages, the printer LCD screen started to prompt "Low Tone. Prepare New Toner Cartrigdge." "Toner Low" warning prompt has also been displayed at Brother Status Monitor on PC monitor since. After I did everything following the troubleshooting instructions, the "Tone Low" prompt never disappear.

Although this toner cartridge looks new, it is incredibly light in weight. My suspicion is that this is not a new or true Brother toner. It might be a recycled cartridge and they forgot to add toner powder.

I have been buying from Amazon from many years. This is the first time I am really disappointed. It's practically a fake product.
