So you’ve bought a Brother HL-L8260CDN or HL-L8360CDW colour laser printer. Or perhaps an MFC-L8690CDWMFC-L8900CDW, or MFC-L8904CDW colour laser multifunction. They are all great machines which will give you years of dependable service, Brother has been refining their printer technology for decades and the devices they sell are extremely reliable. But now you need new toner cartridges – so which ones to choose? Here are your options:

Genuine or Compatible?

Genuine toners are made by the equipment manufacturer, in this case, Brother. They provide the highest standards of quality, reliability, and will produce perfect prints every time. However that perfection comes at a cost – genuine cartridges are the most expensive to buy. If you don’t mind a slightly lesser quality and want to save give our premium compatible toner cartridges a go. You will save around 50% on the black and 65% on the colours, quite a compelling discount.

Genuine standard yield toners  – TN-441

These toners are for users who use their printers infrequently. They come at a lower initial cost compared to the higher capacity genuine toners below, which is great, but the drawback is they print fewer pages. That means the cost per page is higher, however, if it takes some time to deplete them you will hardly notice the extra cost. The black prints around 3,000 pages and the colours print around 1,800 pages.

Genuine high yield toners – TN-443

These toners are for heavier users. While they cost more than the standard yield toners, they print significantly more pages. For instance, the high yield black costs around 2% more than the standard yield but prints 50% more pages, while the colours cost around 40% more but print 220% more pages. That’s a great saving in anyone’s language. The black prints around 4,500 pages and the colours print around 4,000 pages.

Compatible high yield toners – TN-443

These are the best value option if you are happy with quality close to the original. Manufactured by a third party, they are the generic alternative which will print the same number of pages as the original Brother high yield toners but at a fraction of the cost. These cartridges are extremely popular with our customers because they work extremely well in the listed Brother devices. For your peace of mind, all our premium compatible toner cartridges come with a full Replace, Refund or Credit guarantee if you aren’t entirely satisfied. If these cartridges are not up to your expectations, we will refund your money, provide a replacement, or credit the value towards the purchase of a genuine cartridge. They are great value, plus you can save even more with the premium compatible TN-443 toner cartridge value pack – all four toners at less than a third of the cost of the exact same Brother toners. These cartridges output the same as the genuine cartridges – black prints around 4,500 pages and the colours print around 4,000 pages.

Genuine extra high yield toners – TN-446 (HL-L8360CDW, MFC-L8900CDW, and MFC-L8904CDW only)

If you own a HL-L8360CDW printer or one of the MFC-L8900CDW and MFC-L8904CDW multifunctions you can use genuine extra high yield toners in your device. They print a whopping 6,500 pages each, so if you do a lot of printing and want to stick with genuine Brother toner you will love these. You will be replacing toner cartridges far less often, and because they hold much more toner your cost per page is lowered dramatically.  Especially suitable for devices that service several users or for those that print a lot.

Naturally each of the options comes in our value packs which save you even more, we naturally offer free delivery on all those too, plus you’ll enjoy the legendary service Printzone is famous for.
