Excerpt: I thought maybe we were making lots and lots of copies. Then I started dating the cartridges -- sometimes they showed low after 2 weeks. I had two "empty cartridges." I taped the window and hoped this works.
Excerpt: This cartridge is perfect. Good quality, easy to install, lasts a long time, no smearing. I print a lot for my college homework and this cartridge and printer never fail. It gives plenty of notice when it is running low so you have time to order a new one. Brother sends a prepaid shipping label so you can send you old one back to be recycled.
Pros: Clean Replacement, Dries Quickly, Easy to Replace, Long Cartridge Life
Excerpt: I noticed I reordered this TN-330 toner cartridge three months to the day after my last one. Granted, I work at home, and this toner for my Brother HL-2140 printer goes through quite a workout. Still, I owned at one time the Brother HL-2040 printer (which accidentally was broken by someone I allowed to use it), and its toner lasted much longer.
Pros: decent print quality
Cons: limited life expectancy, expense of frequent replacements
Excerpt: I am so glad I read the reviews. I will definately cover up the photo eyes with black tape. I am glad that I saved the toner cartridges that I knew couldn't possibly be empty. Now I have 4 extra's on hand. Thanks for the reviews.
Excerpt: I purchased this product since my starter toner ran out. After 2 days the machine said the toner was low and after another couple of days it said there was no more life left. I called brothers tech support and they told me to mail it to them. They finally called me back and basically said there was nothing they could do. I have always liked brother products but after this I will buy somehting different next time.
Excerpt: The only problem we've had with this printer is the toner usage. After reading the other comments about using black tape, I applied black tape to the tray's holes instead of the toner cartridge. Works great. Wish I had looked at the reviews sooner. Thanks for the great idea.
