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.

  • Brother Compatible DR360 Laser Drum Unit

    Q:

    How do I know when the drum REALLY needs to replaced? The printer says "Drum ends soon" but it's been saying that for over a year of moderately heavy business use. What is the effect on printing appearance when drum is actually dying??
    Asked on 9/11/2015 by DASinCleve

    1 answer

    • A:

      The drum typically gets changed after approximately 10,000 prints or 3-6 toner changes. The "drum end" message will prop up and can be reset to read accurately. The reset instructions will vary depending on your printer model number. The most common way to know if the drum is towards the end life is by ghosting, streaking, or lines on the prints.

My laser was not printing 100% black and after changing toner, by deduction in reading the manual, it seemed that I needed a new laser drum unit. The product arrived in just a couple of days as indicated. Product looked and seemed great, however the printing was still not a 100% black as when I first bought the printer.

So by deduction, after changing the toner and laser drum and I can only say that I am due for a new laser printer. However, I will not be getting a Brother brand laser printer. This is my second unhappy experience with a Brother laser printer. Both printers issued curling of freshly printed paper (too hot imaging process) and the double-sided printing was always "melting" and smearing, so printing of brochures was not an option.

I work on low-budget graphic design where quality laser quality is essential - no more Brother printers for me, the savings are not worth the headaches.

From here on, I will only purchase Hewlett Packard laser and inkjet printers!

So, the ordering was easy and the drum works just fine. My complaint is with the shipping. The company they used took at least two days longer than I was told when I ordered. There was no decent way to track the package and the delivery was horrible. The delivery folks left the package at the end of my driveway on a fence post. We were home, the gate was open and there were no dogs or other reasons for them to not come into the drive to deliver. If I hadn't checked online, a couple of hours after the delivery, and noticed the status said "Delivered", I never would have looked for the package. It could have easily been stolen and then I would be out the money and product. Unless they change delivery folks, I will not order from here again.

Comments about Brother Compatible DR360 Laser Drum Unit:

The DR360 Drum fit perfecly and worked right away without a hitch. I noticed some folks were confued with the number of ink cartridge uses that the Drum could last for and expected that number of cartridges to be included. Consider the cost of an OEM drum to be multiple of this suplier price.
This price is as good as it can get for a single drum.

Comments about Brother Compatible DR360 Laser Drum Unit:

It works perfectly. I wasn't able to figure out how to reset the printer to stop telling me that" the drum needs to be replaced," but who cares, as long as it's printing great copies! Also, I'm in southern California, and I received the package overnight.

I will never buy your toner cartridge product again.

Comments about Brother Compatible DR360 Laser Drum Unit:

Your toner cartridge did not print fully readable output. There were dark lines on the page and the pages did not fully print. I had to scrap your product and order a Brothers TN-360 product that works perfectly. If i knew how to return your toner cartridge, I would.

Comments about Brother Compatible DR360 Laser Drum Unit:

It has been a real pleasure and fulfillment to be your customer during the past ten or more years. Your products are excellent and most reliable and when necessary you stand behind each with urgent correction of any problem. On a few occasions, when necessary, you dispatched replacement toners on an overnight basis. I have been "singing your praises" most sincerely and intend to continue to doing so.
