Amazon sells this DR-420 cheaper than anyone I can find, but it may be cheaper to buy a new Brother and steal its drum and toner.

We have approximately 8 Brother HL-2270DW and similar printers that use this DR420 drum and the TN-420 and 450 cartridges. If you have these too, you have realized that the replacement drums are crazy expensive (like $95on Amazon --$125 if you walk into a big box office supply). I've tried three different knock off drums, but none have proved to be suitable for office use (well, maybe if you are just printing envelopes or drafts of things you do not care about). It leaves a dark shadow of toner all over the page. (If you are an old timer like me, you may remember what the curly thermal fax paper looked like back in the day? It's kind of like that.) As best I can tell, there is no "compatible" drum unit to replace the DR420 that is office quality. You have to buy the OEM version or you are not going to be happy. (I am a cheapskate and I hate saying that, but it is true). It's also kind of true for the "compatible" TN-420 and TN-450 toner cartridges. We have had the best luck with the Polaroid brand knock offs (also available on Amazon), and terrible luck with some of the Chinese manufactured version. I have now begun buying the OEM TN-450's and refilling them with toner kits for $5-7 a piece (you also need to buy a gear set if you are refilling the starter TN-420 cartridge). It's messy, but if you can master this, it almost cuts the price of buying OEM brother toner cartridges in half. But alas, there is no such process to reuse the DR-420 Drum. Amazon has it as cheap as I can find it --though it is still almost the price of the printer!

My printer told me one afternoon, "I need a new drum unit."

I said, "Are you sure you need it right now?"

The following day, again, my printer asked, "I need a new drum unit."

I thought about it a little.

The third day, he didn't even ask, he just started putting black lines on all my copies and prints. I got the message.

I ordered 2 of these, popped one in, and all was well with the world. And he hasn't complained since.

Next time I'll make sure to listen earlier.

Hmm, after reading the negative reviews about this product I was a little skeptical, but the truth is, I have the printer, I can't really go without it. I have not had any of the problems that were indicated by other reviews, and I abuse the heck out of my printer.

The most frustrating part of this process is figuring out how to "reset" the printer so that it knows it has a new drum and the indicator light will switch off. Otherwise so far, so good, and I've had mine for about 6 months already, and at least 6,000 copies, if not more.

Product as Described. You don't necessarily need to change the drum at 12000, unless your print outs are coming wrong.
Use genuine cartridges you might not even have to change it at all.

Nothing special, but it works like it's supposed to and lasts a good long time. Will keep using Brother products happily.

I'm not sure about this. I bought the brand name drum to avoid any trouble. I've had it in about a week and I've gotten warning lights about the drum a couple times. The last one I bought was a "compatible" and I didn't have any trouble, plus it lasted years. I put 3 stars because I'm not sure if this problem will turn into something or not. I'd be curious what other people's experience has been.
Update: Ok, I've had this drum 3 months. I was out of town 2 of those months so it was only used 1 month. The toner is the same age. My printer keeps telling me the drum is no good. For $72.00, I would expect more. Will never buy Brother brand again.

This drum was received in a timely manner and serves the purpose. There may be cheaper replacements but because the drum life is so long, it is worth it to me to purchase a genuine Brother product.
