----- 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!
Like other printer companies, Brother includes a "starter" toner cartridge that barely covers a ream of paper, so it did not last. Purchasing the higher capacity TN450 over the lower capacity TN420 is a no brainer, considering the difference in yield. I tend to avoid generic toner, never trusting it. Just look at the reviews all over the place for the generic brands. In the long term, I suspect it is cheaper to purchase Brother toner. Amazon had the best price around, considering shipping and sales tax.
The toner was easy to install, with simple written instructions and drawings (not the annoying pictographs!). It should last for a year of use in our house (my wife is a teacher, so she tends to print a lot of material for her class). If not, I will follow up.
Brother includes a return shipping label for the old toner, so save all the packaging if you wish to leave it for your postal carrier or drop at the post office. Recommended over the TN420 and generic brands!
I was just about to change the current cartridge and thought, even with the heavier print, it was a bit too early at just under 1500 pages for a TN450. The prints were low on ink in some places, and almost blank in others. I removed the cartridge and tilted it to the L and R a few times to sort of redistribute the toner inside. Sure enough, the next print was perfect: still like new after 1500 pages. Very impressive and 5 star rating warranted.
(nb. using a 2280 with 10,000+ printed to date, all perfect)
