We've had an MFC4800 for a number of years now (and paid several hundred more than it sells for now.)

I bought a non-Brother toner cartridge. Once.

It printed terribly, had streaks everywhere. I wound up replacing the drum as well to get it working properly again.

This was only the 2nd toner cartridge, so I don't think it was quite time for a drum.

Spend the extra money on this - buy the Brother toner.

I ordered this item because the title and Description CLEARLY state that this is a BROTHER OEM part.

What I was shipped was a COMPATIBLE generic cartridge. I would not have purchased this item if it was clearly labled as non-OEM. One could argue that the price should have been a give-away, but it is still misleading and deceptive.

UPDATE: Apparently Amazon made a mistake in the listing for this item and merged non-OEM and OEM sellers. The marketplace seller in this case contacted me (Abacus24-7) and has offered a full refund of the purchase price and shipping. I will update this review once I get my refund. The current listing now lists Amazon.com as the seller and the price has gone from $7 to $24 indicating that most likely this is now the genuine OEM product. Changed to 5 stars.

Tried a generic equivalent cartridge from Staples with miserable results--could barely read the printing from my laser fax. Replaced the almost new generic with the real thing and 3 pages later the printing was just fine. I have used "equivalent" toner cartridges (by Xerox) with my HP printer and had very good results, but I will stick with Brother for my fax.

I prefer Brother toner to generics.

Amazon price is actually better than most E-bay bargains if you buy two cartidges and thus qualify for free postage.

This is basically a misrepresentation. It gives you the impression that you are buying a Brother TN250. But you are not.

My old toner was original from Brother and it's just running out and didn't give me problem at all. However, after using this toner, the first couple pages were ok. But the following ones were almost all black. I took it out and put back in my old toner, all the printouts are now black (actually it's gray coz low in toner). Looks like the drum was ruined by this refill toner! I'd read about people's advice of avoiding this kind of toner and didn't quite believe it. Now I regret...

I bought this toner for my Brother printer. I should have known better. This is not a "Brother" printer toner, it simply replaces it. I thought I would save a few bucks and buy generic. Well, now I get to spend more than planned and buy the "Brother" toner, afterall. This generic one is making a huge mess of anything I wish to print. I never had this problem when buying the "Brother" brand. This generic one doesn't come in a sealed, airtight wrapper and it has made a mess of the drum unit. Probably have to replace that now. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!

Purchase ONLY the genuine Brother TN-250 toner cartridge. We get approximately 3,600 prints from each cartridge, each one even, crisp and clean. Note: We print mostly text w/o much graphics, hence the higher page count.

Tried a couple of "compatible" TN-250 cartridges, and the results were miserable. We got at most 1,500 prints from them, and the greys were uneven across the page. The "clones" apparently are short on toner, severely compromised in print quality, and vary considerably in consistency.

Our results are a far cheaper per page print cost (for us at ~2.1 cents per print including the price of paper, toner and the drum). I personally know several other Brother MFC-series laser printer all-in-one owners, and many still own printers that are much older than mine. They have shared their experience that "compatible" "clone" toner cartridges just don't cut it.

Here is my cost-use analysis for my Brother MFC-6800.

Drum = 25,000 prints = 0.0054 cents per page (based on $135 price @ Amazon.com)
Toner = 3,600 prints = 0.0072 cents per page (based on $25.92 per cartridge @ Amazon.com)
Paper = .0082 cents per page (based on $41.00 / case of 5,000 sheets @ Sams Club)
TOTAL: 2.08 cents / page (INCLUDES Drum, Toner & Paper costs)

Type of printing: Invoices, price sheets, promotions (heavy toner use due to graphics).

Our Brother MFC-6800 printer is now coming up on 6 years old and it has topped 70,000 prints. I expect this printer to last several more years. Not bad considering the original $249.00 investment.

In a nutshell the real Brother TN-250 toner cartridge performs reliably--EVERY time, while "compatibles" are just cheap wannabes.

Go with the best; go with the real thing.

Took a chance and ordered this toner cartridge, as I could not find the company on Amazon I had ordered a non brand toner cartridge from before.
I was amazed and delighted when I printed my first page.
I did not realize that there would be a difference between the non brand name type and the cartridge made by Brother .
I noticed that there was more toner in the Brother product versus the non brand name. You get what you pay for I suppose.
Although I was pleased with the off market toner cartridge I had ordered before, I had forgotten how dark and clear the printing is with the Brother product. There is definitely a difference! If I was just printing recipes and non business stuff, an off market is ok, BUT, considering there was much more toner in the new Brother cartridge than in the off market one, it is worth spending the extra money for the real deal. Plus, in the past I have gotten defective off market toner cartridgse that made a mess, didn't work or were broken and the companies couldn't care less.
At least with a new Brother cartridge, it is perfect working order. Worth the money. Plus, as this qualified for the free shipping due to something else I ordered, the cost was justified.
This toner went into a Brother MFC4800 copier, which is about 9-10 years old.
