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.

My MFC was telling me to replace the drum for a number of days before I had time to order. This was my first drum replacement.
I found it easy to install, but there were now directions for telling how to reset the drum count and having inherited this office, I have no owner's manual. Maybe that was because I tried putting it in BEFORE I actually read the directions. Anyway, I finally found a place that asked if I was putting in a new drum, so now this new drum is on the appropriate count.

First, let me say, I LOVE LDProducts! I've had such great luck with toner for my Brother printers and ink cartridges for my previous Canon MX850 and more recently my MX860 printer. You can't beat the prices, the reliability, and the speed of shipping. It really has proven to be a Top Notch online vendor and I've been extremely happy and made numerous "word of mouth" recommendations. I very much trust LDProducts.

However, on the topic of the compatible Brother drums for both my previous Brother HL-5250DN and present Brother HL-5370DW printer, I've not had any luck. The only reason I purchased the 5370DW was because after installing the compatible drum for the 5250, the duplex feature stopped working.....(this is an essential feature for me as I am a teacher and easily printing class sets of things was the reason I had bought this printer). Everything printed fine except for duplex feature. I assumed the printer had bit the dust. I was in a bind over a weekend, OfficeMax had the 5370 at a very good sale price, so I went ahead and purchased another Brother printer that also had duplex printing.

I just recently had to purchase a drum for my newest Brother printer-- the 5370DW. I loved the price from LD Products, but the exact same thing happened........duplex printing just didn't work. I got a paper jam message after trying to print.......over and over numerous times. Coincidence? It made me stop and wonder if the compatible drums just didn't work in the Brother printers. (I have, possibly, a perfectly fine Brother HL-5250DN sitting on the floor of my closet.)

So, the latest news is I broke down and spent the full price for an OEM Brother DR-620 drum and everything works as expected. Not sure why it is so expensive for the authentic OEM Brother drums, and it bothered me that I had to spend that kind of money for the drum, but it did save me the cost of buying a new printer yet once again. (Although I did consider that move when I weighed the cost of a new printer vs. nearly $150 for a new drum for my existing printer.)

As I said, I love LD Products, but the Brother compatible drums did not work for me on both the HL-5250DN or the HL 5370DW.

Comments about Brother Compatible DR620 Drum Unit:

Smudges were appearing on all my printed pages and after trying endlessly to clean the original drum - went out and bought 94% alcohol as advised by manufacturer, and exchanging out several toner sets thinking they were responsible, LD sent me a new drum. Voila! Smudges are gone and printing is back to normal. Wish I would have just bought the new drum to start with.

I used to use the brand name drum-which costs about triple--no longer! Don't waste your money--this is perfect.

  • Toners Don't Lock Into It

Best Uses

    Comments about Brother Compatible DR620 Drum Unit:

    Delivered on time, but the drum was defective. It would not print and gave "drum error." I called for a replacement which they sent to the wrong address and I had to go get it. When I put in the replacement, was not much different - the error light did not stay on, however the paper jammed about every 15 to 20 pages. The gears on the drum are too tight. I print hundreds of docs every day and have to stop after every 20 to unjam the printer of paper.
