Not TN450 as suggested
on January 29, 2013
Okay, I was trying to save some money and went for this non oem product, normally i use TN450 from Brother.
First no problem with the shipping as this was fulfilled by Amazon, the only thing was I wish seller would change the price to $25 so non prime members can get the free supersaver shipping. Dont think customer will mind the extra penny.
Second no compatibility issue, easy to install and my printer HL-2270DW recognize the toner right away.
Third this item is suppose to be equal to TN-450 but it is not. This printed great when first installed but the print outs quickly faded. Now I kept all my print counts from the TN-450 and this product as follows:
The TN 450 printed 1556 pages prior to low toner light, an additional 543 pages before the change toner light or 2099 pages. However I got an additional 276 pages after overriding the change toner light (hit the go button 7 times) for a total of 2375 pages.
This on the other hand has only printed 1041 pages before it is now too faded to continue use. Also note this doesnt give you a low toner message as TN450 toner.
Overall it actually cost more to use this product as you need to change this toner more frequently than the TN 450 so go with the brother product and not this piece of crap.
