----- 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 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.
As of now I've stopped counting page output, I think the results are reliable enough to form an opinion. My printer is still rocking on just like it did on day one!
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.
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.

Works much better than the off brands. While they did perform the basic of printing a page, the off brand would often leave extra marks. This always prints crisp and clean.Published 3 days ago by Thinblueline
