Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.

  • Compatible DR630 Laser Drum Unit for Brother

    Q:

    I have a Brother MFC L2700DW and have purchased other drums that would not work because the printer would only accept Brother products. I see a review below from December of 2015 that says this product is "not certified" and the reviewer cannot make it work. Has this issue been resolved? I would like some reassurance before placing my order. Thanks!

    • A:

      You may certainly use the compatible unit for your printer. You may need to reset the drum counter on your printer after installation. For assistance, you may reach out to Brother or give us a call at (888) 321-2552.

    Q:

    Does this drum unit include a 660 toner? I am purchasing it because staples said that the drum unit provides more pages than the rest of the toner cartridges. I figured that it was similar to a high yield toner cartridge.
    Asked on 3/21/2016 by phxchristian from Fountain Hills, AZ

    1 answer

    • A:

      This is just the drum unit. You will need to order the toner separately. You will need both units for the printer to work. The drum has a higher page count because it doesn't get changed out as frequently as the toners. For example, you can use 3-5 toners per drum.

Like many, I purchased this drum to save money from the name brand drum. I print about 200 sheets daily double sided.

Black printing began as faded on the sides but has since cleared up.

My biggest issue is double sided printing. I print multiple sheets on 1 side, then put them back in the paper feeder to print on the other side. Even though my printer has a 2-sided feature, I did not want to wear out the printer's gears/inside parts with the amount that I print. What happens on the second side are constant paper jams, the top edges of the paper get randomly folded, and the paper itself gets wrinkled like and old drum would produce except for the fact that this one is brand new. Going name brand from now on.

This compatible Laser Drum does not work

By CAZ

from Thousand Oaks, CA

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Compatible DR630 Laser Drum Unit for Brother:

I have two Brother printers, MFC L2680W and MFC-L2740DW. LD's DR630 compatible drum does not work with these models. It doesn't fit properly in the printer. So I decided to see where the difference was between a Brother drum and LD's compatible drum. First, the drum of the LD compatible is not the same size as the Brother drum so it does not fit properly in the Brother machine. I tried two new drums from LD and both did not work in both machines. Other differences are the mold sections are not the same so that affects its fit in the machine. I understand patents don't allow them to be exactly alike, but 1/2" off in width makes a big difference. For this particular item, I would suggest you buy your drum elsewhere as it is a waste of time. Their Quality Control Department needs to fix this problem. It is certainly NOT COMPATIBLE with a Brother Laser Drum as they state. Until they fix this problem, I would not recommend it to any of my friends or business associates.

I have used this company twice now the first time I bought the wrong part but when I called the young lady that took care of me had no problem returning the part I bought but she let me know that the part I bought did go to my printer and is suggested to be changed every third or fourth ink change so I did keep that as well as order the right toner for my printer I would suggest this company to anyone.
