5.0 out of 5 stars Bought 2 & Both Worked Perfectly, February 7, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Both toner cartridges worked fine. At this price, I can get 4 or 5 cartridges for the price I would pay for one Brother toner cartridge.

If you purchase a "compatible" toner cartridge, what you are actually getting is a refilled toner cartridge. If you ever have issues with your printer telling you to "Replace Toner Cartridge" with one of these cartridges, see my note below for help.

*****************
Do not make your printer accept a refilled or "compatible" toner cartridge by a process of turning the printer off and on and holding and/or pushing buttons. This puts your printer in "continuous" mode. What this does is makes the printer ignore the fact that the toner is telling it that it needs replaced. This is dangerous because the reclaimed toner in the cartridge will be used, which can drastically decrease the life of you printer drum. Sure, the drum is replaceable, but why ruin it?

Instead of harming your printer drum, you can reset the flag gear on the toner cartridge. On one end of the cartridge, there is a gear showing that you can not turn by hand. The gear has a little tab on it that the printer uses to determine if the toner cartridge is able to be used. You need to take the screws off the gear cover, pull off the gear cover, pull off the flag gear, turn the flag gear 180 degrees, replace the flag gear, replace the gear cover, and replace the screws. It only takes about a minute. The company that refilled the toner cartridge should have done this for you! But you can do it if you don't want to bother with returning the item. If you have doubts as to how to do this, get on YouTube and find a video that shows you how to perform the task.

1.0 out of 5 stars REPLACE TONER ERROR, December 13, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This product was close to 5 stars, but the flag gears were not reset when the toner cartridges were refilled. When you forget to reset the flag gear, your printer will recognize the toner cartridge as being empty. There are a couple of work-arounds, but one of them can potentially ruin your printer drum. I ended up returning these two toner cartridges since I did not fully understand the issue. However, the next cartridge (different seller, different manufacturer) I received had the same problem, so I earned my youtube degree (watched a how-to video), got out a screw driver, and fixed it myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy Pressboard Guides, December 13, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These pressboard guides are hi-quality, sturdy file dividers. They are not folders. I have not found them to be needed very often, but when they are needed, you really need them. I bought these for about $12 instead of going to an office supply store and paying over twice the price for the Smead SMD50376 file guides. Both file guide brands are made of high quality green pressboard, but these are less expensive.

1.0 out of 5 stars REPLACE TONER - Defective Unit, December 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This cartridge looked right... it was made from used Brother cartridge, so no issue there. When placed in the printer, the "Replace Toner" message came up. The cartridge was pulled out and reinstalled multiple times with the same problem. The printer was reset, but the problem persisted. The printer absolutely refused to acknowledge the full toner cartridge.

After looking into the issue, I found that the flag gear had not been reset when this cartridge was refilled. It's a simple process of removing two screws, pulling off the gear cover, pulling the flag gear off the cartridge, turning the flag gear 180 degrees, replacing the flag gear, putting the gear cover back on the cartridge, and tightening the two screws. The entire process takes about 30 seconds.

After the little operation, the printer accepted the toner cartridge and everyone lived happily ever after. I thought about giving this product 2 stars, after getting it to work, but decided that the average user will not know to reset the flag gear. So, for the average user, this product would not work and therefore deserves a single star rating.

2.0 out of 5 stars Multiple purchases:1st worked fine, 2nd was worthless, November 23, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Amazon will not let me post a review for each toner cartridge I purchased from this seller, so I am editing my review and adding both reviews.

Review of second cartridge purchased:
First off, shipping was quick and the cartridge I received was compatible with our Brother MFC-7860DW printer. But that is where the love ended. This cartridge made very messy prints. The pages came out with random splatter and lines all over the place. The problem was much worse while making duplex copies. I ordered another compatible toner cartridge from another seller and verified that our printer was not the problem. It has been too long for a refund, so we are out of luck.

Pros:
Quick shipping
Compatible cartridge

Cons:
Terrible print quality

Review of first cartridge purchased:
Quick shipping, compatible cartridge, and great print quality. No issues at all. I was happy enough with this purchase to order the same product again.

Pros:
Quick shipping
Compatible Cartridge
Great print quality

Cons:
None
