You will likely notice that there is a significant difference in price between some of the cartridges available for this laser printer. “OEM” as seen in the item titles above stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer and refers to the brand new, name brand original cartridges manufactured directly by Brother which come at a higher cost than compatible cartridges. Our “Brother compatible” cartridges are also brand new however they are manufactured to our specs and will save you money while offering fantastic quality. They also come with a 1 year warranty! You may also note price differences in cases where items are offered in a multi-pack.
** Please note: This printer requires more than one cartridge to operate - a toner cartridge and a corresponding drum cartridge (both cartridges found above). Both cartridges work in unison in order for you to print a page of text. It is common to replace the toner cartridge multiple times prior to having to replace the drum due to the higher drum yield. Your printer will tell you whether the toner cartridge or the drum cartridge needs to be replaced.
