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.

i had a starter cartridge that yielded 700 pages before the low toner warning came up. I went ahead and ordered this, replaced it, and still had the message. After about 500 pages of printing, the printer said replace toner and refused to print. I googled dcp-7065dn toner trick, and came up with this.

Open the front door (the one to access the toner).
Press the clear key
Press the start key
Press the down arrow key
Press the up arrow key
Press the Ok key
Close the front door

this resets the printers count for the toner bar, and now it says that the toner is full. so try this before you throw away your old cartridge, as well as cleaning the corona wire and you can get more prints out of your non-oem or oem cartridge. this should be on brothers website, or this one, so I'm posting it here. the non-oem cartidges they sell work, but I still had to do this to get the printer to see it as a "new" cartridge.

I've tried non-OEM toner cartridges from 3 vendors in last few months and none of them are close enough to OEM quality. I almost always print 2-sided and the main problem is that one side of the paper has a black dusting of toner that is particularly heavy at the bottom of the page. Roller marks also become visible. I believe that on the Brother MFC7860DW, page 2 prints first, then page 1 prints on the other side of the paper. So it's the numeric page 1 that shows the poor print quality. When I switch back to OEM cartridge, after wasting about 10 pages or so, the clean print quality returns, so I don't believe the drum is the problem.

Comments about Brother Compatible TN450 Toner Black HY:

These toner cartridges work well some of the time.
When you put some of the cartridges into the printer, it keeps coming up with a screen that tells you that the cartridge is empty and needs to be changed. It is pain in butt to keep ignoring it when printing, but I managed to get through it. It happened on two out of 4 cartridges.
