Is there any real difference between genuine and non-genuine printer cartridges?


To find out how print supplies differ so much in terms of reliability, quality and level of output, Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab was commissioned by Brother to perform an unbiased evaluation.

They took one genuine Brother toner cartridge, plus 10 other non-genuine brands and ran them through a series of intense tests on the Brother HL-L6300DW laser printer.

The in-depth, impartial findings will help you separate the printing myths from the truth. It could save you time, money and a lot of unnecessary frustration!

Here's a little sample: "In Buyers Lab's test, the Brother genuine toner performed flawlessly throughout, whereas all other brands experienced at least one fault (excessive toner leakage, cartridge not recognised, poor image quality, dirty charge wire) that resulted in early toner replacement or unexpected maintenance."

We hope you find the full results as interesting as we did!
