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.

The drum is difficult to install, i.e. it does not slide into place easily. It sticks and has to be forced. The tab to use to clean the corona wire is EXTREMELY difficult to release so you can slide it along the wire to clean it. It also has to be forced. I cannot comment on how how long it lasts as I just installed it a week ago. It is working but I'm getting faint print at the extreme right edge of the paper. However, I had noticed that prior to installing this drum but the problem had cleared up before installing this drum so I am not sure what the cause is.
This is my first time using this compatible drum & I will try again in case it is just a slightly defective one.

Item Description

By Jimbo

Verified Buyer

Comments about Compatible Brother DR630 Drum:

I thought I was ordering a toner replacement but got only the drum instead. Reading the item, it said, up to 12,000 pages that led me to believe it was a large toner cartridge replacement. This item and others like it, should be highlighted that this is NOT a toner replacement so other folks will know. Maybe a bold line like:

THIS ITEM CONTAINS NO TONER AND REQUIRES A TONER CARTRIDGE, PURCHASED SEPARATELY.

It works well

By Ed C.

Verified Buyer

Comments about Compatible Brother DR630 Drum:

This unit is installed in my home printer. Works as well as the original did. Can't say much more. Time will tell about its durability It's too early to give it a 5 star rating. Can't do that until it wears out.I expect 2 years at least from this drum. I don't print very much, here at home.

So far so good

By TR

Comments about Compatible Brother DR630 Drum:

I've been buying the toner but this is my first time to buy the drum. I just installed it a few days ago but so far so good. It was a little snug, I had to wiggle it a little but it went in and no problems. I read where some people say the printer wouldn't read it but I had no problems with that.

OOPs I was unaware that the drum and toner were separate

By Mark

from Idaho

Verified Buyer

Comments about Compatible Brother DR630 Drum:

Well you all know what happens when you assume something. I made the mistake of assuming the drum also had toner. They were great to correct my error but I still do not need 4 drums with a lifetime warranty on each so I get to send them back.
