2 out of 5 eggsDarn thing LEAKED

This review is from: brother TN115BK Toner Cartridge Black

Pros: OEM toner so no compatibility problems.

Cons: Cartridge LEAKED a couple of months after installation.

Other Thoughts: I ordered a full toner set when I needed to replace my black toner. I don't print in color very much (MFC-9840CDW) so didn't have to replace color toner until last year. Install was easy and all seemed fine for a couple months then I had a huge toner leak from the magenta cartridge. After much cleaning I still have magenta marks on any color printouts (at least I got it off pure mono-black prints). I've researched online and found leaking is not unusual for Brother OEM cartridges so I may switch to compatibles that are at least less expensive if they end up leaking....

1 out of 5 eggsBigger is NOT better

This review is from: brother TN115BK Toner Cartridge Black

Pros: Works for a few hundred pages.

Cons: Doesn't give half of the 5000 pages promised.
Print quality WORSE than the TN110.
Newegg's Price is not competitive with the guys with the smile on the box.

Other Thoughts: This printer came with the TN110 toner and I had good success for a while refilling that cartridge. When the print quality started to degrade I decided to pony up for a GENUINE Brother High-capacity (5000pg) TN115 cartridge to replace it. Less than six months and 1000 pages later, the cartridge is all but unusable. First, the density became very uneven across the page, then the toner started to leak and cause streaks.
Further research has shown that this is a common problem with the high-capacity cartridge and that the low capacity TN110 is actually better, and may end up giving you MORE prints since it doesn't fail.
It looks like there's a design flaw in the TN115s so I'm going back to the TN110.

5 out of 5 eggsOver 8000 pages

This review is from: brother TN115BK Toner Cartridge Black

Pros: We get more than 8000 pages per cartridge by resetting the counter wheel.

Once it hits 5000 pages, it stops and we remove the cartridge, reset the counter wheel and reinstall. I would estimate 8-9000 pages in total. We order a new cartridge when the counter wheel is reset to have on hand.

Replace with new cartridge when printed documents begin to fade.

Cons: Resetting the counter wheel requires a small amount of skill. Use google to find the tutorial on how to reset the counter wheel.

I can see the usefulness of the counter wheel. Makes it idiot proof but I'm more concerned with value than a small inconvenience of having to reprint when the cartridge is actually going empty.

Other Thoughts: We print lots of documents that use only a small amount of toner so resetting the counter wheel works very well for us. We keep track of the quantity of paper packs(500/pk) we use.

Remember to select Mono printing to ensure the black toner cartridge is used or it will use the color cartridges to make black.

5 out of 5 eggsGeniune Brother

This review is from: brother TN115BK Toner Cartridge Black

Pros: Great product

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Will not buy refurbs again. They either leak or don't last as long. With the prices from newegg it was only 20 dollars more then refurb. We bought them on sale.

5 out of 5 eggsToner reset magic!

This review is from: brother TN115BK Toner Cartridge Black

Pros: It's black toner, which is way easier to deal with than any ink-jet.

Cons: The printers try to cheat you.

Other Thoughts: I have a HL-4040CDN. All of the cartridges on the unit were declared empty at exactly the same time, which is obviously a scam. The printer keeps a count of pages and uses that to determine "empty" rather than actually refer to the amount of toner in there. On this unit, it's easy to fix. Open the toner cartridge area, hit Cancel+Reprint, and you'll get a service menu. If you scroll through the 8 entries there and select each of them, you'll reset the counters for each. Close the printer back up, and you're back to printing. Using this trick, all of the cartridges that were declared empty kept going for thousands of more pages. So there's no problem with the toner, just some shadiness in the printer itself. Look for a blog entry titled "Toner ripoffs on the Brother HL-4040CDN" for more info on this topic.

4 out of 5 eggsCost of consumables

This review is from: brother TN115BK Toner Cartridge Black

Pros: The HL-4070CDW is a reliable printer and reasonably priced.

Cons: Brother is making it back on consumables.

Other Thoughts: The printer counts pages regardless of toner used and reports empty cartridges according to page count. A little ingenuity can save you some $$$.

2 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: brother TN115BK Toner Cartridge Black

Pros: OEM - that's about all.

Cons: Cartridge leaked, and spilled toner everywhere inside the printer. May have damaged the drum unit.

Other Thoughts: Wish we could find an aftermarket unit - probably would be better quality.

3 out of 5 eggsBest Price, ridiculously low yield

This review is from: brother TN115BK Toner Cartridge Black

Pros: Newegg normally has the best price. Toner does what it's supposed to.

Cons: Ridiculously low yield. 5,000 pages for their "high yield" cartridge. I assume this is because the toner is smaller to fit 4 color cartridges in the printer, but I have to replace the toner 2-3 times a month. At $60-$70 a pop just for the black, it gets pretty expensive.

Other Thoughts: Brother is an inexpensive, high quality printer, but they make their money on the toner.
