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.

But not perfect. I was truly hoping for making a std format on the computer that could be sent to the printer itself, and just change the fields that will vary, without needing to still be connected to the computer. But, other than that, we couldn't have asked for a better printer that comes with labels that are laminated. That is a HUGE benefit to us. We actually bought another one this week.

The unit works well for the most part. Prints well and is easy to setup and use. I have two major complaints. First is that it wastes a tremendous of material. Before printing a label it advances and cuts-off a 1" long piece of tape. As a result I have only used it a few times but have already thrown out close to 2 feet of 1" piece. Given the price of the tapes that can add up quickly or you use it a lot. My second complaint is that it has not built in ability to produce templates for wire marking and such. You can work around it but at this price I think these types of capabilities should be there.

Comments about Brother TN450 OEM HY Black Toner:

I have been ordering from 123inkjets.com for more than a year now and they have always delivered quality OEM products for my Brother printer. I ordered two Brother TN450 OEM HY Black Toner cartridges for my printer and they were delivered 2 days before they were supposed to be here. I have never had a problem with their OEM products. With their already low prices and then using an online coupon... they can't be beat. I highly recommend 123inkjets.com for your printer solutions.

Comments about Brother TN450 OEM HY Black Toner:

I have not used it as yet. , but I have been using brothers TN450 and have been pleased with them. In the past I have bought the "reprocessed" ones and in sets of 3 I have bought, there has always been one that I had to return because it did not fit my Brothers printer. This time I bought one of the real thing and trust it will fit.Thank you.Rita Francisco Delivery was very timely and in good condition

    Received wrong tracking #, when it did show up it was left on the front porch of a commercial building on a Friday night according to the shipper but was really on my office desk when I got there and was received two days later than another cartridge that was ordered the same day, other than that everything is peachy

    Comments about Brother TN450 OEM HY Black Toner:

    Come on, it's a toner cartridge. It doesn't work as long as you think it should (they never do), but this one is a good deal and this is the best place I've found to buy them. 4 stars because they never last as long as you think they should (they never do). Shipping was timely, billing was accurate.

    great software makes it a winner

    By GrizzledGeezer

    from Renton, WA

    Comments about Brother TN450 OEM HY Black Toner:

    In writing Amazon reviews about scanners, I remarked that there is no such thing as a good or bad scanner, only good or bad scanner software. The same is almost as true of label makers. The label-creation program that comes with the PT-2730 is remarkable for its features -- and complexity. It's not something you'll master in a few minutes. But it does have templates for common labeling needs, and if you want to do something that's not obvious, the Help system usually has an answer. It is far superior to the software that came with Brother's TX computer-connected labelers. One of the program's best features is the ability to drag-and-drop text //or images// directly into the label you're creating. I have two gripes. The PT-2730 doesn't take the TX tapes I used with my older machines. Nor does it take 24mm tape. (Only one or two TZ machines do.) For those new to labeling machines -- note that the regular tapes will not stick to polypropylene (eg, buckets, trash cans). The tapes with "high strength" adhesive are required.

    Great Labeler

    By srhudd

    from Richardson, TX

    Comments about Brother TN450 OEM HY Black Toner:

    This Labeler is great for making multiple labels, it can be connected to a PC and linked to a database or spreadsheet to print from. The software that came with the unit is clunky and could use updating, but it is functional and saves a lot of time.

    Works great ... Some waste

    By loflandl

    from San Diego, CA

    Comments about Brother TN450 OEM HY Black Toner:

    The label maker works great and has filled my need for an inexpensive, PC/MAC connectable labeler. The only distraction is the 1 inch waste of tape at each printing. This is not much of a waste, but over time will add up. Other than my perceived problem with this item, the labeler is well worth the price.

    Everything I expected

    By jschlimmer

    from Janesville IA

    Comments about Brother TN450 OEM HY Black Toner:

    Initially outraged as the manual makes no mention of P-touch Editor or printing labels from a database. After checking the website, I learned that I needed Editor, installed it, and have printed labels from Excel. Total control of what records to print - one record, a range, or all. Not too difficult, easy editing, and I love it! I recommend the PT-2730 connectable, even if you don't think you need to print from a PC. It's a good capability to have in case you or someone you know does eventually need it (you could end up a hero to an organization, family member, or friend).
