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.

    Q:

    how many pages is it good for

    • A:

      The DR720 drum unit has a page yield of 30,000 pages until you will need to change it. That’s just a bit more than 3 toner cartridges you run through the printer. The printer will also let you know when it is time to change the drum.

    • A:

      It's hit or miss. I had a drum that lasted forever, but also that lasted through one toner. I've had Brother printer for 3 yrs (MFC8910) and went through about 5-6 drums. Basically, you get what you pay for so don't get too troubled if one of the drums doesn't last it's actual life span.

I use the drum in a Brother HL-6180DW and have to say it is an impressive replacement for the more expensive original Brother unit. Remember to reset the drum counter after installing it as the 'Replace Drum' message that stays on can throw you off in the beginning. One call to LD customer service led me through how to reset the drum counter and all is well - this is a great product.

As I had used LDProducts before, I went on web site and entered drum for " Brother MFC 7360N" and screen popped up with compatible drum which I placed the order.
It arrived on 9/17/15 and I tried to install on 9/18/15 but as soon as I was comparing with my old drum, I knew it was wrong. I called customer service and they are refusing to take it back or refund money BECAUSE IT WAS OPEN!!!! I DI NOT EVEN USE IT AND PUT IT BACK IN THE PACKAGE AS IT CAME....NOT HAPPY AT ALL

Comments about Compatible Brother DR720 Drum:

Problems with shadow printing since putting in the laser drum unit. VERY frustrating when printing loan documents. Have tried everything to get it to not only clean up, but to stay clean. Not sure what else to do but to buy a new drum. Been very happy with the toner.
