Excerpt: This unit has to be replaced in our Brother models we have. it does work well. The only thing I do not like is you have to replace toners and drums on all Brother units. Seems like double Dipping. If you have one of these units they are a must to replace.
Pros: easy to replace, Sharp Tones & Colors, Clean Replacement
Excerpt: I too find the drum must be replaced too often: 9200 pages. On my third drum, having spent hours doing the "drum dot print" and cleaning dots off each of the drums. This is done with a magnifying glass and lint free swabs. A pain at best.
Excerpt: Though I didn't think it would be so expensive, I was really happy that it was so easy to replace. I wasn't sure I would know how to do it, "replacing a drum" sounded like it would be quite involved, but it was really easy.
