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.

So far so good! I just purchased 2 more because I thought I was getting low and it was free shipping. I am still on the first one I bought quite a few months ago and have had no problems as of yet.

One thing I noticed is the cartridge doesnt fit as snuggly as an original Brother prduct but it doesn't seem to affect the operation or quality of print.

I use the printer/toner for management reports: monthly rent roll, petty cash report, apartment turnover reports (condition of apartment, items requiring attention by painters, maintenance and housekeeping plus grounds in spring-summer-autumn months), cost analyses for turnovers,vacant days summaries by turnover apartment, etc. New leases and addenda, lease renewals, posted announcements, forms, payroll bi-monthly, etc.
Nothing outstanding to list as great about the toner.
The paleness of the finished product is not so great.

Outstanding Product for the Money

By Dan the Writer

Verified Buyer

Comments about Brother Compatible TN450 High Yield Black Toner:

I was sick of paying upwards of $60+ for the "name brand" cartridge that seemed to run out of toner faster than anticipated. I decided to see if there were any alternative sources for my application, and 123inkjets delivered! I spent a lot of time on the phone with the customer service rep. asking important questions to comparing the "name brand" to 123inkjets. I ended up buying two cartridges for the price of one "name brand" with the same quality and guaranteed warranty! What took me so long? 123inkjets has my business.

Skeptical at first

By Dan the Writer

from Santa Barbara, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Brother Compatible TN450 High Yield Black Toner:

I was buying the "name brand" toner and spending a FORTUNE doing so. Each time, I felt like I was being ripped off, but I needed toner. I wised up and started to shop around online and came across 123inkjets. I was skeptical at first because their prices are so much lower than the "name brand" toner cartridges. I called 123inkjets and grilled the customer service rep. about quality, ink comparison, warranty, etc...all answered with confidence and money back guarantee.

I had nothing to loose, so I ordered two cartridges for less than one "name brand" cartridge. I received my order incredibly fast, and the quality of print is exactly what I am used to. Excellent product, and excellent customer service. Who says you have to pay more for the same quality. Competition is alive and well, and 123inkjets has my business now.
