We all want to get more from our printers while paying less. Is there such a thing in the cluttered world of inks and toners? Sure, and the Brother TN450 toner cartridge is a great example…while its identical cousin, the TN420, is…less so.

But why?

As you can probably tell from the image above, both cartridges are appear to be virtually the same–except that one is a low-yield cartridge, while the other is high-yield. The Brother TN420 and TN450 are interchangeable and compatible with the same Brother laser printers Here’s a chart of those printers:

The TN450, by comparison, yields up to 2,600 pages. at an OEM-listed price of $68.49. If you break down the numbers, the TN420 will cost you 4¢, while the TN450 will run you only .

  1. I bought the LY DR 420 drum unit for my HL 2270 DW printer. It installed OK and is running fine but the drum light is still on. I have followed the instructions in the printer manual for resetting the drum counter but have not gotten any different results.

    Any suggestions?
