How to Save on Brother Toner Cartridges
Toner cartridge replacement can be one of the most expensive parts of owning a Brother® laser printer. Many cartridges end up costing more than the printer after you have purchased a couple of replacements, putting pressure on your printing budget and your bottom line.
Luckily, with the right toner cartridges, you can save a bundle without sacrificing print quality! Compatible toner cartridges from LD Products are a great alternative printing solution, getting you comparable print results at an affordable price point. Here, we break down the cost savings of six popular Brother toner cartridges and we even review some important toner stats too, so you can make a smart buy the next time you buy a replacement.
Page yield and cartridge price are the two factors that determine the cost-efficiency of a toner cartridge. Learn all about cartridge page yield, cost per page and the compatible printers for some of our favorite Brother cartridges below, and start getting more out of your Brother printer.
Page yield and cost per page are two important printing factors that play a major role in determining the cost of your monthly printing bill.
What is page yield?
Page yield is the approximate number of printed pages offered by a specific printer cartridge.
All printer cartridges base their page yield around the same ISO standards, giving consumers a common way to compare competing products and make a better buying decision. This standard bases page yield on 5% page coverage, or pages where only 5% of the page is printed with toner. 5% coverage is essentially the same as printing out a short paragraph or email.
For example, a Brother TN-660 toner cartridge has a page yield of 2,600 pages. Going off the 5% coverage rule, one toner cartridge should last for approximately 2,600 short emails. If you want to print something lengthier like a business proposal, the number of pages you’ll get from a particular cartridge will significantly decrease. Printing habits vary from user to user, so your estimated number of pages will change depending on the document size.
Cost per page is the approximate cost of printing out a single page. Calculating this is easy, just divide the cartridge page yield by the cost of the printer cartridge! It’s important to note here that cartridge cost and page yield varies quite a bit from cartridge to cartridge. As such, the cost per page can vary quite a bit too. We’ll demonstrate by comparing the cost per page of an original brand Brother cartridge to the LD compatible brand:
Printer cartridge price / Page yield = Cost per Page
An original brand TN660 toner cartridge goes for $58* and prints approximately 2,600 pages, so the cost per page would be:
$58 / 2,600 = 2.2 cents per page
A compatible cartridge offers a savings of 65%, which is pretty significant when you look at the cost per page. LD Product's compatible TN-660 cartridge is just $19.99 and prints the same number of pages as the original Brother brand:
$19.99 / 2,600 = 0.8 cents per page - A 65% Savings!
Now that you know how page yield and cost per page work, use your newfound knowledge to check out the compatible cost savings of these popular Brother cartridges. All of our compatible cartridges come highly reviewed and are backed by an unbeatable lifetime guarantee.
