    Flynn, no problems with this one at all

  • mothar1 Sep 1, 2015

    Vlynn, I always buy the generics for my Brother printer, and if you read the reviews, you sometimes have to press buttons to get it to work. I have bought maybe 4 and had to do the things mentioned in the first few reviews here just once if that helps. Never had a streaking problem either. I try to look for the better rated ones too. I say go for it!

    trichardson0621 - congrats on the FL gift card!! I also hope you win the big prize!

    Vlynn, I ordered a generic brand for my Brother laser MFC and it left streaks on the paper. Went back to brother cartridge and no streaks. I have been using Staples coupons, Staples GC's from Swagbucks and GC's from my credit card rewards to lower the cost but I am going to look into Amazon.

    VLYNN, we have a Brother printer also and my hubby orders our toner refills from Amazon. Can't remember how much they are, but should be cheaper than locally. No matter the price, sure is much cheaper than the ink jet printer we had before - haven't tried the generic toner, the refills last me 'forever'!

    VLYNN- I have a brother printer at work. I've used the off brand toner cartridges for about a year but lately the copier won't recognize anything but a brother toner cartridge.
